Despite being 2-1, Jerry Jones should closely examine his team.
Records never truly represent a team’s production so early in the season. The Dallas Cowboys have been able to pull off defensive clinics in the past three weeks. According to NFL.com, they are statistically the best defense, in terms of yards per game, in the league.
But the offense, on the other hand, is in virtually an inverse situation. The Cowboys offense, led by Tony Romo, has been unable to score, which places them as one of the worst offenses entering Week 4.
The season is still young, and Jerry Jones now has more time to mull over transactions given that the NFL has moved the trade deadline from Week 6 to Week 8. He can also look to free agency for help as well.
It’s the little things that seem to be the most troublesome for the Dallas Cowboys offensive line.
According to ESPN.com, the Cowboys line leads the league in false starts.
The lack of production hasn’t made things easier for quarterback Tony Romo, who was sacked four times and lost two fumbles in Week 3 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
Even right tackle Doug Free has admitted his own lack of productivity, as reported by ESPN’s Calvin Watkins.
There needs to be a greater sense of discipline, and a trade may be able to accomplish that if the current iteration of their line doesn't get their act together.
Acquiring someone new, or trading away a current member of the roster, will definitely create a sense of urgency.
The Cowboys' running game has been great these past three weeks.
Starter DeMarco Murray has totaled 213 yards and a touchdown so far in the season.
Backup Felix Jones, on the other hand, has not been so productive. In fact, he hasn’t had many opportunities to run the ball.
Bringing in a solid backup may prove dividends for the Dallas Cowboys, and can shape their running game similar to what their AFC counterparts are doing in Houston.
Tony Romo is a good quarterback. There’s no question about it.
Well, maybe a few are still skeptical of the Cowboys' starting quarterback, but he is 32; at some point his age may catch up to him.
There are various teams with young quarterbacks in waiting who may not get their shot in their current squads.
Jerry Jones should toy with the idea of bringing a green quarterback to learn behind Romo.
Who do you think can be welcomed additions to the Cowboys' roster?
