    Temporary Role Could Increase Church’s Value

    While the Cowboys are definitely hopeful that Sean Lee will be back in action this Sunday against the Bills, and can function with that wrapped-up left wrist, at least they’re working on some solid contingency plans just in case.

    One of which we saw some last week against Buffalo included backup safety Barry Church working into the nickel packages as a linebacker closer to the line of scrimmage.

    Church responded with one of his most productive games of his career, with a career-high tying six tackles. Those six tackles also tied for second-most on the squad Sunday and he did so in a limited role.

    “He did a really good job,” head coach Jason Garrett said of Church. “He's a guy that's always taken advantage of his opportunities shows up in the kicking game, very physical very instinctively and he stuck his nose in there a number of times and he actually caused a holding penalty on an offensive lineman before then, just very instinctively kinda getting away from potential blockers and making some plays on the runners. I thought he did a nice job and took real advantage of that opportunity we gave him.”

    Church said taking on 300-pound linemen wasn’t an easy adjustment early in the game....

    Reminds me of the way Woodson used to play in passing downs.

    Bringing in Church as a LB in nickel situations was a good move on the part of Ryan. I have been very pleased thus far with the play of Church when he has been called on

    For sure.. I like how Ryan will find a way to use all of his guys on the squad. Good coach.

    I'm sure the injury to Lee played a big part in that

    I'm sure watching Brooking and James get clubbed over the head like baby seals against the Eagles played an even larger part. :laugh2:

    Coaching isn't rocket science... You get your best play makers on the field.

    Would be awesome if we somehow found us a nickel linebacker already on the roster in Barry Church.

    I don't know if I was ever sicker watching this defense than watching Brooking and James get continually abused in the run and pass game. It isn't their fault, they tried. Its the coaches fault for putting players who suck on the field.
