I saw a team that got dominated at the line of scrimmage last year. What has happened over this offseason to change that?
Hey, I'd love to have Morris Claiborne back in my secondary, but if we can't block anybody, what does it really matter?
I am hoping that Bernadeau and Livings are better in Dallas than they were at their old stops, but who can buy into that at this point? Out of the two, Bernadeau is the potential quality player, but Livings was not that great in Cincy. He had dominant flashes mixed in with absolute schoolings. Antonio Smith put a hurting on him in the playoffs last season. Costa gave me no reason to put my faith in him going forward.
The draft ended up falling where it did. I look through the off-season moves and walk away thinking the defense will be much better than it was last year (aside from Safety). I really think they made some great improvements on that side of the football.
Is that enough to balance out the potential offensive line deficiencies? I currently have visions of Romo on the ground a lot in 2012. That is concerning to me because he could carry this team to the promised land if he can stay upright. In my mind they are two quality players from contending for the Superbowl, but those needs are both in the same area and that means a gaping hole in the line.
We might have to again use that quick release offense to keep Romo from getting killed, because if he goes down then this team will be picking in the top fifteen for a third straight season.
Okay, done ranting. Patience is a virtue.
