We at Whitebear560.com wish to personally thank everyone who has subscribed to our web page. This has been an up and down ride for the last three years.
We are hoping that the Cowboys turn this ride around and start winning, once again. The talent is there, the fourth quarter play by the defense is NOT.
We want to see Lewis Neal replace the retiring Steven Paea. We wanted Nolan Carroll to be gone before the season started, but with all the injured rookies in our backend, we needed him. Good luck Nolan in your future endeavors, but not against us.
Smith may be replaced by Anthony Hitchens on passing situations.
Smith has proven to be a better run stopper at the point of attack than Hitchens; however, I think Hitchens plays the pass better at this point and time.
With the return of David Irving and a chance to get his some rest and reps following his suspension, DeMarcus Lawrence will continue to dominate on the left edge.
Jourdan Lewis seems to get better with each game. He is already a better player than what we had in Morris Claiborne.
We have moved Tyrone Crawford to right defensive end.
Maliek Collins has been very effective. We like this starting group now driving our defensive line.
We need to see better play from our first round draft choice, Taco Charlton. While it is a know fact that playing the defensive end position at this level takes demands most players to be into their second season before they really get it, we hope that Taco can start to improve, sooner rather than later.
Charlton seems to struggle getting off blocks at this level, but our trainers will improve his hand and arm strength between now and next season.
Our offense is fine at this point. Even if Ezekiel Elliott is forced to sit six games, our offense will be okay. What needs to happen is to get the ball to Brice Butler more often to stop defenses from stacking the box against our running game.
We expect after week eight to see the seldom used Geoff Swaim’s roster spot to be occupied by Rico Gathers, from our injured reserve.
The offensive line has yet to fully gel. There are flashes of last year and we think by the end of the regular season La’el Collins will become the tackle we drafted him to become, a dominant force to protect Dak Prescott.
The only improvement we see for our special teams unit is in our return game. So far, rookie Ryan Switzer has not lived up to his reputation for returning kicks. Switzer’s teammates believe, as does coach Rich Bisaccia, that Switzer is ready to have a break-out of what has been a dormant return game.
With the week off, we hope to see a full 60 minutes of effort from the now 2-3 Dallas Cowboys.
