I'd say there are a number of reasons:
1. They feel the 43 might be better suited against the read option that alot of teams are switching to, namely the Redskins.
2. The Cowboys do not have a 34 DT, especially with the loss of Josh Brent and the likely release of Ratliff.
3. What we do have, in terms of our front 7, may actually be better suited for the 43.
