    2 teams out of 18 games ran the ball with any success on Dallas and now team will be putting up 200 yards? Come on, Dallas played poorly acting as if all the good things the defense did over the course of the season is now all down the drain because the Rams ran is a bit of a reach. Clearly Dallas needs more than Woods and Collins in a fairly thin rotation.

    Not sure what kind of quality we'd get for Jones. We could hope other teams didn't see him get lit up at the end of the season.

    The Jones always missing some key part in the off-season. Last year they miscalculated the WRs positions, then have to give a 1st round pick to recovery from. Time will tell, maybe the Jones fix the DL problems, but its alot to ask for when you have other key areas of concerns. Here to the Boys!!!!!

    The rams game wasent the only poor performance by the cowboys d - line .they gave up over a hundred yards rushing five other times last season. They gave up over a hundred yards eight times in 2017.this is the first season the cowboys finished in the top ten in yards per carry

    That's what they need that or a safety. But if they go dline it likely wont be an upgrade for 2-3 years.

    Stay away from Suh unless he's cheap. He seems very lazy and problematic.

    Pretty sure a DT in the 2nd will be an upgrade behind the starters, we have little depth.

    We shut down the running game of the Saints and that of the Seahawks. We were one of the best teams against the run for 2018--4th of 32 teams.

    The Rams game was an outlier as it was L.A. misdirection, scheme...and having good intel on Cowboy players movements to get pre-snap reads.

    Suh has gotten lazy and plays when he feels like it.

    With our two stud young linebackers, if we could get a couple beasts up front that the o-line has to worry about, look out

    The Rams exposed us in the playoffs

    It’s a helpless feeling when you can’t stop the run

    I don't think the Cowboys DL is as bad as the Rams game performance displayed. Rinse defense was their strength all season and they completely shut down the best run game in the league the prior week.

    That said, improvement is always the right strategy.

    The top rushing defense in the NFL gave up over 100 yards 4 times. #2 gave up it 5 time, and #3 gave up 7 times (more than Dallas at #5). 100 yards isn’t a magic line that a good defense never allows. Even the better run defenses give up 100 yard games 30-40% of the time.
