    Offense or Defense, Which Should be the Cowboys Main Offseason Focus?

    The should be approached like a puzzle. You have to know what the picture looks like beforehand before you start grabbing random pieces to try to fit them together. Keeping that in mind, I thought it be a good idea if we take a look at the Cowboys and to try to determine which one needs the most attention.

    It may be somewhat surprising, but the Dallas Cowboys pretty much have the entire puzzle almost put together. There is just a few missing pieces they need to add, but for the most part the team that will take the field when the kicks off is already in place.

    There isn't going to be much roster turnover this offseason. Nearly all of the starters will return for the upcoming season on both sides of the ball, meaning the Cowboys are in good shape as far as having the teams nucleolus in place. In fact, there might be just one or two starting positions up for grabs on offense and defense.

    Let's take a look…

    As things stand right now before any moves are made in or through the draft, the Dallas Cowboys offense may have just two starting spots up for grabs. But, even that's just a guesstimate because we still don't really know what the future holds for , even though all signs point to him making a triumphant return to the starting lineup.

    The way I see it though, the Cowboys will need to find someone to replace in the and also add a starting caliber . That's it really as far as the starters are concerned. There is however need for more depth at several positions such as backup and offensive , but those aren't necessarily “needs”. I'd say they're in pretty good shape offensively compared to years past.

    Surprisingly enough, the Dallas Cowboys really don't have any glaring needs on the defensive side of the ball either. After finishing as one of the top defensive units in 2018, they will have nearly all of their starters returning for the 2019 season. But much like on the offensive side of the ball, there could be two starting spots up for grabs.

    The Cowboys will have to find someone to replace as the starting strong side and potentially a new starting strong . That's really the only starting positions I believe are up for grabs on defense. But like the offense, they could stand to add more depth and competition throughout the defense, especially along the . But again, there really isn't a glaring “need” they absolutely have to address.

    Verdict: Cowboys Offense

    Even though the Dallas Cowboys offense and defense seems to be pretty evenly matched as to how many starting positions are up for grabs, the offense looks to be the one that needs just a little bit more help. The defense proved in 2018 they are someone to be reckoned with and with the loss of just Damien Wilson, that shouldn't change. The same can't be said about the offense though.

    If Cole Beasley does indeed leave via free agency, that's a big blow to the passing game. But, it's not just him. Other than their rushing attack, the Cowboys offense was ranked in the bottom half of the league in nearly every other category. With now gone we can hope that improves, but that doesn't mean improving the offense shouldn't be the Cowboys main offseason focus though.

    Of course, this is just my opinion and you are more than welcome to agree or disagree with it. But, when the free agency and ball finally starts rolling, I expect most of the Cowboys offseason moves to be on the offensive side of the ball. Improving things around Dak Prescott would seem like the wise thing to do after all, especially since he's about to be paid quite handsomely.

    Which side of the ball do you think needs more help this offseason?

    I say both offense and defense we got to get that DT, Safety and offense we got to replace several receivers and TE, RB, Swing Tackle,after that then just try in upgrade talent at a reasonably cost in free agency plus hope to get lucky in undrafted free agents
