they have speedy WRs, so he wanted to force them drive the field to score. specially with Fole, however, the eagles converted time after time.
Front 7 can't get much pressure if only rushing 3. Foles had all day for much of the game. And Cowboys need to cut either Agnew or Frampton, and re-sign Mana Silva.
Cowboys did so much better when they rotated McCray and Silva at Safety. Silva is much better in coverage and McCray thrives in run situations. And Silva is no slouch against the run either. Neither Frampton or Agnew are familiar enough with Rob's D, they both looked ugly out there. Especially against the run.
Beefing up the trenches & the pass rush would not hurt either. Why not take a chance on a proven pass rusher like Babin, instead of a nobody like Poppinga?
