Randy Gregory As Good As Advertised In Return To Cowboys This Season

There have been a lot of ups and downs for Cowboys defensive end Randy Gregory. At some points, it was unclear whether or not he’d even play in the league. During others, he looked like he was born to wear 94 for America’s Team.

Not able to suit up until week 7 of this season, Gregory’s future in the NFL felt as murky as ever ahead of the 2020 campaign. He’d been in and out of the lineup most of his career due to suspensions, but was hoping that 2020 would be a turnaround season for him.

And so far, it has been.

Since the Cowboys traded defensive end Everson Griffen to Detroit, Gregory has seen a steady uptick in his snap count. And with it has come an uptick in production.

Randy Gregory had a standout performance during Sunday’s win over the Eagles, finishing with 6 tackles, 1.5 sacks, and three forced fumbles. Yes he stuffed the stat sheet but he was flat out dominant to the eye as well. He was all over the field, and was really the only answer the Cowboys had early to the Jalen Hurts/Miles Sanders read option game.

No Title

Gregory has always had the natural ability to be an elite pass rusher. His length, strength, and athleticism had him considered to be one of the best EDGE prospects in his draft class, and the Cowboys’ second round gamble for him is now paying off.

He has 3.5 total sacks on the season, and has put some incredible moves on opposing offensive tackles week in and week out.

This week, Gregory and the Cowboys defensive ends get to face a Giants’ tackle pair which has struggled this season. Neither Andrew Thomas nor Cameron Fleming has had a season to exactly heavily praise for New York, and both should struggle with the speed and power these Cowboys edge rushers can bring.

I’d expect Gregory and DeMarcus Lawrence to create havoc on Sunday, and make things very difficult for Jason Garrett’s offense.

What do you think?

  1. Nolan’s scheme requires edge/ defense ends that are absolute athletes and Nolan is being rescued by Gregory as no one else on the Boys can play the role . Lawrence has gotten better but still struggles with the 2 point stance on many plays.

  2. Even the great Charles Haley himself saw that Gregory had the talent to be an elite player , hopefully he’s able to get the help he needs and can stay crack free

  3. I have to give credit where credit is due ! How many owners would have had the patients that Jerry has had with RG? You have to applaud ole Jerry on this one! I hope RG can drop his demon that he deals with and plays for years to come with great success! Also I hope that Josh Gordon can do the same! It breaks my heart to see young men loose good careers because of substance abuse! My advise to them is to look to The LORD above and follow what HE teaches in HIS word!

  4. Gregory is only guilty of partaking in weed for his anxiety. The NFL is finally softening their draconian stance on marijuana. Look at Aldon Smith’s rap sheet if you wanna see criminal behavior.
