Dallas Cowboys Secondary Deceiving and the Ghost of Mike Jenkins

As I watch over the game tape, it becomes evident later on that the Dallas Cowboys secondary didn’t allow one deep pass the entire game against Cleveland. Of course, there is the one drop by Braylon Edwards that would have been a touchdown, but other than that, the Cowboys secondary played well.

Or did it?

Keep in mind that Donte Stallworth and Joe Jurevicious were both out Sunday. Those are key receivers in my opinion. Without those guys in the game, covering wide outs became a lot easier. 

Secondly, where was rookie Mike Jenkins? The first-round draft pick was nowhere to be seen. I keep looking for his number, or a play, and I don’t see him. Well,  Orlando Scandrick practiced more in the slot, so with Terence Newman out, he saw most of the plays. If Anthony Henry fell, Jenkins would see more playing time. Jenkins plays on the left side for nickel and dime packages.
