    Dallas Cowboys CB Chidobe Awuzie Becoming a Red Zone Liability?

    Cornerback Chidobe Awuzie is arguably as talented as just about any in the NFL. He still young and has quite a bit he can do to improve his game, but there's no denying his talent. One of the things he may need to work on right now is his awareness and discipline in the .

    In back to back games No. 24 has been caught out of position and as a result surrendered points in the end zone. Just this last Sunday he gave up a two point conversion to Kyle Rudolph. The week prior he gave up a touchdown catch to Cody Latimer.

    Does this make him a liability in the red zone?

    I know if I've noticed Chidobe Awuzie getting victimized in back to back weeks in the red zone opposing offensive coordinators around the league have done the same. As a result, they're going to test Awuzie to find out if they can have the same kind of success.

    If I'm I'm personally going to be working on making sure Chidobe is fully aware he needs to be more disciplined with his play, especially in the red zone. He's been caught out of position in back to back games and that can't be something that continues from here on out.

    I'm sure Awuzie would tell you himself this is something he needs to clean up. He takes pride in his abilities and knows he can still improve. Hopefully he can take it to heart and better prepare for what's to come. Whether that means just executing his assignments better or maybe studying a little more film. It's up to him to figure out what he needs to do.

    As far as the Dallas Cowboys are concerned though, they may need to start giving him a little more help over the top if this is something that continues. And if worse comes to worse, they can always see if or can be more consistent. I doubt it would come to that, but it is an option.

    I for one am hoping No. 24 will just hunker down and figure out what he needs to do in order to take his game to the next level. If he can do that the Cowboys will be much better for it. I don't know about you, but I will be keeping a close eye on him for the rest of the season.

    Do you think CB Chidobe Awuzie has become a red zone liability?
