The Dallas Cowboys play their final preseason game of 2021 on Sunday against the Jacksonville Jaguars. After that game come some big decisions as the roster must be cut to just 53 players.
Welcome to the Daily Blitz by DSP Media in partnership with CowboysSI.com.
Dallas has not only made some questionable moves over recent years at some valuable position groups, it’s flat-out ignored one that has been an issue for quite some time.
For a long time now, Cowboys fans have begged them to upgrade at the safety position, and the team has responded by allowing a series of six-round picks to handle up on things in the secondary. Finally, this season, under new defensive coordinator Dan Quinn, proven free agents were brought in to contribute.
The Cowboys enter 2021 with a huge question mark at center on the offensive line. They had all offseason to resign Joe Looney, who started 12 games for Dallas last season, and a total of 29 games over the last three seasons. Instead, the club is relying on second-year man Tyler Biadasz for the season, with no real backup there. Never mind the fact Looney can also play guard in the event of an injury to one of the starters.
Last year, the Cowboys found a clear-cut veteran backup quarterback in Andy Dalton, who proved valuable after the injury to starting quarterback Dak Prescott. Dalton is now fighting for a starting position with the Chicago Bears, and Dallas has decided to keep an inexperienced backup, whether it’s Garrett Gilbert or Cooper Rush. Ben DiNucci’s time seems done after another poor performance against Houston in preseason game No. 3.
The Cowboys have decided to gamble at three very important spots on the roster for 2021. Will they hit big with their gamble or will the house prove the percentages to be correct? Let’s discuss!
