    It's hard to say -- Last year, Ellis had 22 tackles and 6 sacks through six games. Now he has 11 tackles and 3.5 sacks

    Glover is about equal - 2004 - 17/3, 2005- 12/3

    Less tackles due to less time for both guys. They seem on pace on sacks when you consider that Ellis really dropped off last year after the first 6 games. I guess Bill crunches stats... Keeping them fresh should make both of them better as the year goes on, whereas last year they slumped

    I agree that the rotation is helping them. They are also being aided significantly by an influx in talent.

    Ellis and Glover are still making a lot of plays out of 4 man lines where they have similar responsibilities to what they had in the past.

    Ellis/Glover/Ferguson (or a nickel guy Rat, Spears, Canty)/Ware

    Ellis/Glover/Carson/Wiley

    As a team, the Cowboys are +5 on sacks after 6 games (15 last year to 20 this year through 6 games).

    Dallas finished with 33 sacks last year, if I'm not mistaken. They are on pace for 53 sacks this year. If the D-line stays healthy, their current rotation will make that 53 sacks look more and more likely each week.
