Tweet (9) Share (6) 43 Comments ⋆Rec (2) In the past few days, we have been treated to a slew of transactions: cutting the roster down to 75, and then to 53, compiling the practice squad, trading Sean Lissemore and Dante Rosario, and acquiring former Chief Edgar Jones and former Giant Kyle Bosworth. Whew, that's a lot of work by the front office! Lest we think all this work takes place in isolation, I think its important to view these various moves in light of the entire Cowboys offseason. Indeed, they can be understood as the final piece in the offseason puzzle, one designed to play (and to win) games in a very specific fashion. As a way to understand what I'm talking about, allow me to take you back to November of last year, to a game in Philadelphia. The Cowboys stumbled to their second-lowest offensive output (and lowest passing total) for the season, and were outplayed by a woeful Eagles squad for much of the game. They trailed 17-10 late in the third quarter before turning it around and winning going away, 38-23. How did they do this when the offense was held in check the entire night? Simple: they got three cheap touchdowns: a 78-yard punt return from Dwayne Harris, a 47-yard Brandon Carr pick six, and a Jason Hatcher fumble recovery in the end zone following an Anthony Spencer sack.
