Doug Free & The O-Line
Watching the game tape over the last several weeks and its increasingly obvious. This line isn't horrible, its not the best but it can hold. We went into the season knowing we were weak at both guards but Smith at LT, Free at RT and Costa at C where supposed to be the leaders and the foundation for Romo's protection.
Unfortunately, Free has played like utter garbage. Three out of the three cinderblocks the line was built on have crumbled and only two of them are injured. Does Free see this? Do the coaches see this? Something has to be done. Now that Smith is injured the 3 foundations that were supposed to protect Romo are gone?
Is Romo going to have to sit behind 5 practice squad players and pass 50 times a game because of Free's incompetence?
If Free does not step up his play the Cowboys have no shot at generating offense. The line is only as strong as the weakest link and at this point with Doug Free in at RT they are playing with 4 offensive lineman.
