    How The Cowboys Are Forming An Impressive Pass Rush Package

    While complicated in some ways, football boils down to pretty simple concepts. If you want to win games you have to rush the passer and protect your passer from the opponents' rush.

    Simple enough, right?

    Well, as we all know, formulating a consistent in the NFL is a very difficult thing to do, and one the Cowboys have struggled with for much of the last decade. Once hit an advanced age and the Cowboys moved on from him, the team cycled through defensive ends looking to find their next “War Daddy” .

    They've tried, multiple times, early in the draft to snag that big time rusher. And now that there are no injuries or on the , it appears the Cowboys might actually have two top tier level rushers.

    One of those guys, , has already proven it consistently on Sundays. Last season, Lawrence had a legit case for , leading the team with 14.5 and dictating pass protections week in and week out.DeMarcus Lawrence

    The other guy, , hasn't played in a regular season game since threw his final touchdown pass in the league. But thus far in and limited action, we've seen all the signs that Gregory is back.

    After all, Dallas drafted the athletic edge rusher in the of the 2015 draft for a reason. They gave him number 94 for a reason. And they've been so patient throughout the suspensions for a reason.

    That reason, of course, is that Gregory possesses elite pass rush traits. The athleticism, burst, bend, and natural ability which Gregory features simply can't be taught. And when you find a player like Gregory, you let him develop as long as it may take.

    It's already expected that Randy Gregory might start week one at RDE opposite of DeMarcus Lawrence, giving the Cowboys one of the more dangerous and high-ceiling edge tandems in all of football. But no pass rush group is complete without some interior rushers, and and have severely handicapped the Cowboys defensive tackles this .

    In an attempt to scrap up some interior presence, the Cowboys might've stumbled into an elite pass rush package, however. With former defensive ends and working on the inside, and Gregory and Lawrence off the edge, Dallas can put their version of the “NASCAR” package on the field.

    The possibilities for twists and stunts between these ends and tackles are endless, especially because of the speed the Cowboys can bring on the interior. When you combine these four with the abilities that a player like has to rush as a blitzer, you begin to see how good the Cowboys pass rush can be.

    If all goes well health and suspension wise, of course.

    For the first time in a long time, the Cowboys is the group giving us excitement heading into the season, and the is the one providing more questions than answers.

    At the very least, this should be a fun one to watch for 16 games.
