Cowboys news: Jason Garrett endures heavy criticism from
everywhere after decision to punt The postmortem on the Cowboys’ disappointing loss to the Texans continues with many focusing squarely on head coach Jason Garrett. Jerry Jones was right about the Cowboys’ terrible 4th-down decision - Ryan Van Bibber Youth Terrance Williams Jersey , SBNation.comVan Bibber echoed many others in criticizing Garret’s conservative overtime decision-making. The Morning After: Garrett punts away the Cowboys’ chance at an ugly road win – Bob Sturm, The AthleticThe decision by Garrett has everyone taking aim, including Sturm. What A Sorry Way To Lose A game - Mickey Spagnola, DallasCowboys.comEven the Mothership laments an opportunity missed, citing the good things the team did in a losing effort. Jason Garrett Odds-on Favorite to Be 1st NFL Head Coach Fired After Texans Loss - Joseph Zucker, Bleacher ReportThe calls for Jason Garrett’s ouster are growing louder and he’s now the favorite to be the first to lose his job. Scout’s Eye: Where Were The Passing Breakdowns? - Bryan Broaddus, DallasCowboys.comAt the Mothership, a break down of a number of interesting plays, including how a wily veteran Texans receiver was able to continually get open.Welcome to the NFC East where .500 is good enough to be in first place - Dan Graziano, ESPN.comAn update on the sad state of the NFC East. Dallas Cowboys coach Jason Garrett says he explained OT punt decision to Jerry Jones - Todd Archer, ESPN.comThe owner openly second-guessed the coach and that apparently led a meeting of the minds to clear the air. Audibles at the Line: Week 5 - Staff, Football OutsidersThe always interesting (and often snarky) Football Outsiders staff provides live commentary on all of Sunday’s games. Point to the letdown in OT all you want, but blaming Cowboys' defense for loss to Texans is a hard sale - Brandon George, SportsDayThe Cowboys’ defense was the epitome of bend but don’t break against the Texans, surround copious yards and few points. Is Jason Garrett punting on the Cowboys' 2018 season , too? - Matt Moseley, SportsDayFormer Cowboys’ beat writer Matt Mosely giveshis Monday thoughts on the Sunday Night loss.After the first two weeks of the 2018 season, Cowboys second in the league in sacks This Dallas Cowboys defense is good.We wanted to believe it heading into the season and now after two impressive showings, this is becoming more and more a reality. After holding rookie running back sensation Saquon Barkley to only 28 yards rushing and All-World receiving spectacle Odell Beckham Jr. to just four catches for 51 yards, the Cowboys defense has taken a stand. Oh yeah, they also sacked Eli Manning six times.There are a lot of reasons to feel good about this defense. For example...Despite a very unimpressive showing by the team’s star linebacker Sean Lee, the Cowboys LB group has been tenacious getting after the ball carrier. Lee missed some reps against the Giants, yet the defense never missed a beat. The combination of Jaylon Smith, Leighton Vander Esch, and even Damien Wilson have been very reliable so far.Despite the front office not trading for the talented All-Pro safety Earl Thomas, the Cowboys safeties have not budged. Not only are they not a liability like some of us worried about, but they are playing well. The Cowboys defense is top five in passing yards allowed so far this season with an average of just 183 yards against them. And they are top three in efficiency, only allowing an average of 5.3 yards per attempt, a trend that continues to get better ever since they remodeled their secondary last year.The Cowboys defense is also ranked third in points allowed as they are only giving up an average of 14.5 points per game. How is all of this happening?While it’s a collective group doing the damage, it all starts up front and right now the Cowboys defensive line rotation is getting it done. I know it’s early Tyrone Crawford Jersey , but the Cowboys are currently second in the league in sacks with nine. Last year, Dallas was ranked in the middle of the pack with 38 sacks. With nine already in the books this year, there’s a good chance they improve on their sack total from last season.And it’s not just one player getting the job done. Of the nine sacks, eight different players have sacks.Defensive tackles Maliek Collins, Tyrone Crawford, and newcomer Antwaun Woods each have one. The Cowboys have a great interior line rotation going and that doesn’t even include the fact that David Irving (suspension) and Datone Jones (knee) will be returning soon.Second-year defensive end Taco Charlton has looked sharp so far this season and is showing a jump in ability that Cowboys fans were hoping for.And of course, there’s last year’s breakout sack-maker DeMarcus Lawrence who is the only Cowboys player with multiple sacks this year. He’s picking up where he left off last season and it’s becoming more and more clear that the Cowboys front office will be handing him a big check next offseason.While the defensive line has been playing great, they’re not the only ones getting in on the sackfest as Jaylon Smith, Damien Wilson, and Kavon Frazier each have a sack as well. Rod Marinelli has been dialing up more blitzes and the team is making them count. With strong play from their defensive backs, maybe Marinelli trusts his guys more to handle the back end while he sends extra pressure? And the good news is, it looks like more is on the way!We have to be happy about what we’ve seen from this Cowboys defense so far. The battle in the AFC may go through Sacksonville this season, but if these Hot Boyz keep playing like they have been, post-season play certainly will be in Cowboys future.
