    Martin has been coming up lame the last 2-1/2 seasons. Yesterday was a joke, the dude got bull rushed and he comes up hurt. This Cowboy's team is the worst club in the NFL when it comes to injuries and how the injuries are happening. I feel real bad that the Cowboys lost Coach Markus Paul, but when I look at the state of this team, strength and conditioning seems to be a MAJOR lacking point on this team.

    Penei Sewell OT OREGON

    If Penei Sewell is on the board, I say take him. He will make more of an impact as a rookie than any rookie corner. Rare for any rookie corner to be an instant star. Sewell can make an obvious and earth shatering improvement in this team, more tha nay other rookie. There is no Reggie White or Randy White or even a Aaron Donalod in this draft,nor any Deion Sanders or Rod Woodson.

    Pencil Penei at LG if T Smith comes back. He will be like Larry Allen. He will blow open big holes. 3rd and one, I do not care if they stack 8, Sewell will blow the hole open. Zeke will have great year if he stop fumbling. Dak wil be able to balance the offense with Blake Jarwin a threta deep doen middle. Dak will have time to throw long balls.

    When T Smith goes down or eventually retires, move Sewell over to LT. Have Connor Williams act as backup LG and LT in 2021.

    Tyler B who just hit 23 will come back super strong and ready to give us much better results than Looney. With Lael Collins back, the OL will be 400% better. Zeke will feast next year. Just hope no major injuries to the OL.

    Sewell is ranked as the No. 2 overall prospect in the country by ESPN NFL draft analyst Mel Kiper Jr., behind Clemson quarterback Trevor Lawrence.

    "a potential once-in-a-generation player"

    Sewell is one of the most polished offensive lineman in the NCAA. At 6’6” and 330 lbs. he has the requisite size to handle NFL edge rushers and through two seasons at Oregon he’s shown he has the skill at the position to handle the best pass-rushers at the next level.

    Kyle Long, fellow former UOregon professional linemen Geoff Schwartz and Tyler Johnstone, along with an NFL scout, had a hard time finding any weaknesses in Sewell’s game. They all agree that Sewell has a chance to become something special in the NFL and possibly end up being the best offensive lineman the Ducks have ever produced

    Sewell packs uncommon athleticism. If he were 50 pounds lighter, Sewell could play defensive end. Take away 70 pounds and he’d be a pretty darn good tight end.

    Sewell packs uncommon athleticism. If he were 50 pounds lighter, Sewell could play defensive end. Take away 70 pounds and he’d be a pretty darn good tight end.

    “What I see out there is just an athletic, huge man that shouldn’t be as athletic as he is,” Johnstone said. “He doesn’t move like the way he’s built. He’s a big freak of nature in that sense.”

    Mastering the kick step, for instance, took time for both Schwartz and Johnstone. Executing it over and over was a chore. Watching Sewell do it with greater ease and quickness, it’s something for them to behold.

    “I know I was pretty good for my time, but this kid is ridiculous,” Johnstone said.

    He gets to his spots quickly, can start and stop with ease and is agile enough to not allow defensive backs to get around him to the receiver. Then, when he gets his hands on the defenders, it’s over.

    “It’s incredible to see how forcefully he can be, he just runs guys over in space,” Schwartz said. “He runs, he gets to where he has to go, he squares up and then he explodes on contact. And that’s really hard to do, especially at such a young age.”

    “I feel like Penei is in the category where he can just see something and just do what he wants to do.”

    Of course, one should expect that Sewell loves getting two blocks for the price of one play. Going to the second level is another of his strengths.

    His film is almost laughably dominant and I am incredibly excited to dig into the rest of his game. Sewell is an impressive athlete at the offensive tackle position who gets off of the ball quickly and moves extremely well in space. He is a dominant second-level blocker who always gets to the second-level defender under control.

    Sewell also shows quick feet in pass protection, mirroring opposing edge rushers with absolute ease and showing extremely patient hands. Sewell simply does not over-extend himself as a pass rusher, always letting the defender come to him.

    While his athleticism undoubtedly stands out on tape, Sewell’s power is arguably even more impressive. Not only is he incredibly powerful at the point of attack, but Sewell also shows incredible natural grip strength.

    He does a great job of consistently getting his hands inside of the defender and latching on. In both the run game and pass protection, Sewell shows a strong initial punch and fantastic hand placement. Simply put, once he is engaged with the defender, it is game over.

    Ya we’ve had some dumb luck for sure. Some bad calls ( everyone gets them) as well.
    Poor execution does have a role in it on both sides of the hall.The secondary has literally been a disaster all year some of ir scheme and some of it talent ,there’s plenty of blame to go around

    coaching has lost us 2 games this year maybe more 2020 has sucked in many ways and the Dallas cowboys have played a role in that

    Coaching didn’t cost us this game. Not by a long shot. One bad call doesn’t lose us the game. Skins scored 3 tds after that call and were up by 4 prior.

    I hope not. If we lose Looney, we'll have to post a help wanted sign out at Home Depot. Not sure but I think that's where we got Steele.

    Well not coaching alone but 3 stupid coaching decisions gave the WFT a short field and they capitalized so it contributed to the loss

    And our starting All-Pro center retired. So 4 of our oline starters from last year are out.

    He's just more OT IR fodder.

    We cant keep focusing on protecting and giving Dak multiple toys....WE NEED DEFENSE.

    Trade down if there's no lockdown CB (or if we think we can get Parsons (LB) or Wilson (DT) further down the first round).

    Poor Dalton, its a real shame that Dak got hurt because then it would be him racking up these losses and looking terrible. Then his stats would balance out from that magical 2016.

    Actually rechecked game log it was only 1 other call that cost us so only 14 pts off stupid decisions may or may not have mattered you just don’t know how a game is going to progress every decision matters

    that said within the context of our original conversations it’s all of the things that keep costing the cowboys injuries, bad calls , questionable coaching decisions, no preseason , new system in my opinion all of those things are why we sit at 3-8

    our talent on defense has to get better or this will continue . It’s been like this since Romo and this year is on pace to eclipse his historically bad defense of 2008 or maybe it was 2013 I’ll have to look it up going off memory here

    I dont have a problem with the play selection. I actually like them trying different things as Zeke up the middle on short yardage doenst work very well.

    The fake punt in their own territory was really dumb.

    Ya when it works it’s great when it don’t well you see what type impact it has or can have.

    I like the call beyond the 50 even though with zeke running the way he was it may have been more sensical to run him outside the guards anyway don’t matter now. I feel like it was a momentum shifter
