Don’t Buy what the Cowboys Brass is Selling About this Roster

The Dallas brass has gone to considerable lengths over the last couple of weeks to decry the notion that they need to add any other players to the roster through four games. To a man, , , and have downplayed the need to pursue a player like or to help bolster a that is playing historically bad football.

They like their options internally. They think it can be fixed with time and patience. They think they're close.

Jerry Jones even alluded to the salary was cap this morning on his weekly appearance on 105.3 The Fan in Dallas as a reason why they can't sign any players.

The Cowboys will probably beat the this week, but no game is a given. Even if they do, don't buy the idea that they've bounced back. This defense is still bad and with and the coming up in week six, the defense will once again be exposed.

Just like they helped the in 2018 by trading for , the Cowboys need to do something to give the defense a spark. Whether by or through a signing, something has to be done.

They may not have an offense as good as this in years to come and the Cowboys can't waste it with a defense that is going to breaking all kinds of record in 2020 for the wrong reasons
