Will the Cowboys defense keep dominating?

    By now, everyone knows that the have one of the (if not the best) defenses in the entire NFL. While the Cowboys' has been amazing for this first half of the season, a question can emerge in fans' heads. Will the success of the defense continue throughout the rest of the season?

    To find the answer to our question, we'll have to take a look at a couple of things, such as the Cowboys' remaining schedule, important players, and . These will be key factors in determining if the team will uphold its skills.

    The Cowboys still have nine games to play until the season ends. However, the strength of the schedule has decreased heavily as we enter the second half of the season. This is great evidence that the Cowboys' defense will stride to be even greater than it is now.

    Their toughest upcoming opponents are the and . After reviewing the schedule, I feel that these two teams will be the most challenging for our defense to overcome. Every other team on the schedule is rather weak at scoring.

    I can also add the Giants to the list of teams to beware of, but after the win against them in week three, I think they'll have it in the bag. Now it's time to talk about some key players that can (and have been) benefit the Cowboys' unmovable defense.

    One player I can't ever ignore is . This man is on pace to earn . With two forced fumbles, eight , and 36 tackles, this man is a beast when he's in the mood to hit the QB.

    is another great defender. He has forced one fumble and four total sacks. Without either of these players, the team seems that would crumble. I could name other great stars like Armstrong or Diggs, but these two are “bash bros” who need each other for the team to work.

    A final factor to observe is Dan Quinn. This man is a defensive genius. He's turned a football team that has been known to have amazing offenses and made them into a powerhouse for defense.

    Dan deserves a lot of credit for how this team has performed so far. I think Dan is a great guy who just wanted to win games and do anything to make a win happen.

    So to answer the question, yes, the Cowboys shouldn't have any issues with the team they will be playing in their upcoming schedule. If anything, the defense should get even better and clamp down on making sure their defenders stay healthy with no .

    The defense just gave up 240 yards rushing and 29 points to Chicago. The defense has been carved up by running teams 4 times this season so far and has multiple run first teams coming including all 3 East opponents.
    The defense needs to show it can at least slow down the running before it can be great.


    With the league being so pass happy It is evident that most teams try to stop the run on the way to the QB. Stopping the run is just not much of a priority for this pass happy league. This is just a fact. You can absolutely destroy the RB’s and Receiver’s but, if something or someone lands on a QB. You will have multiple refs pelt you with yellow flags. You must gently hold onto the QB and gently place him on the turf and give him a warm blanket upon sacking him. The Cowboys have been exposed over the last few playoff’s for their lack of physicality and rightly so. I believe they have shored that up with the acquisition of Hankins and Parsons. We will see if they have corrected the outside zone runs which is what’s really killing them. Aliso, running QBs account for a large portion of those yards.


    The Cowboys will ALWAYS have issues on their offense as long as Kellen Moore is the Offensive Coordinator and as long as Mike McCarthy is the Head Coach. Moore us like an 18 year old whose rich parents just bought him a Lamborghini and he just started driving last week. That’s too much car for a kid with limited driving experience. Kellen Moore is in WAY OVER HIS HEAD in Dallas.


    We’re fortunate to still have Dan Quinn in Dallas. Other teams wanted him last season and they’ll try to sign him away from us this off-season as well. Now let’s look at the “Boy Blunder”, NOBODY tried to get him out of Dallas. His play calling STINKS!!! Wish he’d moved on last year and taken the HC job at Boise State. Don’t think that extra experience would’ve hurt him one bit. Too many weapons on this team, to struggle as much as we do at times on Offense. Some fans blame Prescott, the Offensive Linemen, or at times the Receivers. It all comes back to the Kellen Moore doing his best Jason Garrett impersonation. Moore and McCarthy HAVE TO GO!!!


    Ummm. I think the subject was about the Defense.
