    Have the Cowboys Safeties Been the Difference on Defense?

    The in two games are the number one team when it comes to takeaways with six after struggling to produce them over the past five years. This is mainly due to the free-agent acquisitions of safeties Damontae Kazee and Jayron Kearse who have played outstanding since the season opener in Tampa.

    also has a lot to do with the 's success as he has these guys flying and playing the ball on each snap to give the more possessions. Previously with , the defense had no clue about the calls and packages which resulted in blowout losses and big plays consistently given up.

    Things have changed now that Quinn convinced the to bring in better quality safeties than what the Cowboys had over the past few years.

    Kazee has a forced fumble and an interception so far on the season, displaying his playmaking ability. Those were the types of plays the Cowboys did not make last season, as they were one of the worst in franchise .

    Kearse, who nearly had two interceptions, one of which was negated by a , has been a major surprise since joining Dallas. He has shown versatility playing both spots and some as a nickel , which has allowed the defense to get the best guys on the field.

    For years, fans were begging and pleading to bring in better players at safety to prevent big plays, but it seems so far as if they shored up the back end. The old saying “If you have a great you do not need a good ” is not entirely true since the Cowboys only notched two on the season but have four interceptions because of their ability to cover.

    Despite the injuries to the defensive line, the secondary knew they were faced with a tall task against and the first two weeks and for the most part, has done well. The next four quarterbacks the secondary will face are , Sam Darnold, , and Mac Jones.

    All four quarterbacks are still out to prove they can be the franchise for their respective teams. If Kazee and Kearse can maintain their aggressive approach, there will be plenty of turnovers and takeaways to cash in on over the next four weeks.

    Now all we need is a a better corner to take Anthony Brown’s place!! He’s the weak link in the secondary and as long as he’s playing for us every QB we play will have a corner to pick on!! We mite as well put Nahshon Wright in to start in Browns place, there’s no way he can do any worse than Brown!! And when Kelvin Joseph comes back let him take over the starting corner spot and see if he does any better!! One thing I know for sure is that we need our best players on the field and Anthony Brown is not one of them!!
