This Cowboys Corner Is About to Go Epic


It’s time for the Dallas Cowboys to throw the kitchen sink at Morris Claiborne. And it’s time for him to throw the sink back.

Do or die, so to speak. It’s now or no next season. Till contract do us part.

The defense can’t get any worse. Don’t blame the second year, 6th overall cornerback for all the holes. Have DeMarcus Ware raise his hand. Sean Lee. Brandon Carr, too.

Because as we saw, when one or two (or more) players on defense fail at their job, the rest of the defensive team crumbles.

Morris Claiborne isn’t a failure. Not yet.

There’s a reason the Cowboys selected the former LSU Tiger, who turns 24 in February.

And despite dislocating his left shoulder in the 2013 season opener, and losing his starting role, and battling the loss of his father, and having to focus on the birth of his first child, Morris Claiborne is about to bounce back in an epic way in 2014.

Epic, as in Pro Bowl. Bold? Yes.

The Cowboys haven’t seen the best from number 24. He had one interception, and deflected eight passes. Meeting his potential? The Cowboys haven’t seen the cornerback even meet his minimum.

Watch for the kitchen sink. The best is yet to come.

    Claiborne’s been a huge disappointment over his two years with Dallas. He hasn’t lived up to even a portion of his contract so far. He’s got this next season to demonstrate why Dallas moved up in the draft to select him. If he doesn’t show positive results, he ought to go! It’s time for Dallas to get its act and players in a row and make something happen!

    • Michael Vu

      Yup. Now or never.

  • Earl Robertson

    He looks to me like a corner that has to play man to man. When he try zone he was terrible
