    O-line could look a lot different after bye week
    By Tim MacMahon | ESPNDallas.com

    IRVING, Texas -- The Cowboys’ offensive line could look a lot different after next week’s bye.

    Offensive coordinator Bill Callahan said he is hopeful that Monday night’s matchup with the Bears would be the last game that Phil Costa misses due to back problems that have bothered him since training camp. Once Costa has recovered, there could be an interesting conversation among the coaching staff about whether Costa or Ryan Cook should start at center.

    There could also be a change made at right guard, a topic Callahan and head coach Jason Garrett danced around but didn’t deny Wednesday. The Cowboys have the option of replacing struggling Mackenzy Bernadeau with Derrick Dockery, a veteran with 113 career starts.

    I definitely feel worse. About the only thing that might cheer me up is bringing in Holland,,, and how SAD is that?

    I thought the guy did a pretty good job last year upon his return.

    And this is coming from a guy who was SCREAMING for him to be released in the first place!

    When faced with life without football, the light came on for him and he became a much improved and more focused player.

    I'm hopeful that the same is happening with Jeff Otah and we can take a look at him as a RT possibility.

    What about Costa at center and Cook at right guard?

    About a month ago, he clearly outperformed the two cheaper scrubs we ended up signing...

    Replacing cook with costa would be stupid unless they move cook to RG. Costa Cook might be better than cook MAC

    If these idiots don't get their act together we need to make a trade.

    I have this strange fantasy where Kowalski comes back healthy and saves the O-line. I know--it's twisted, right?

    Oh, fantastic.

    We swap Costa for Cook and then slide Dockery in to replace Mack?


    Guess he's right, it could look different.......although won't likely play any different.

    Be a pretty terrible idea.

    If Dockery isn't better than Mack or Cook, why is he even on the roster?

    Keep Cook, swap Dockery in for Mack.......provided Dockery can even handle that.

    Well, I for one am glad that Callahan will be considering all possibilities for the future.
