2. DeMarco Murray and Sean Lee will start 16 games

DeMarco Murray is the legs of the Cowboys, while Sean Lee is the heart of the defense. The two combined missed seven games in 2013.

Neither has played a full season.

But enough is enough.

According to ESPN reporter Todd Archer, the Cowboys are taking action to cut soft tissue injuries, particularly the hamstring plague.

The shortened offseason conditioning program could play a factor in the increase in injuries, but it has not affected every team. The Cowboys have studied other teams’ approaches and injury numbers to come up with a solution.

Coach Jason Garrett said one possibility is cutting back on the time spent on the field, especially early in the offseason.

The Cowboys need Sean Lee on the field. In 11 games started, the middle linebacker was one away from 100 tackles. DeMarco Murray finished the season with over 1,100 rushing yards along with nine scores.

    I would agree with you if it wasn’t for the brutal schedule! I still think the NFL will put Dallas in the prime time slot and they will have to play Seahawks that first game! If that is the case Jerry Jones ear drums will be bleeding after that game

    all the nfc east will have that brutal schedule, no excusses

    From your lips to God’s ears. It’s all dependent on injuries since Cowboys have no depth and hoping the coaches don’t screw up games. Also, let’s not get big heads over the five losses and eight points. The Cowboys had five wins of five points or less. Not quite the same stat, but it shows that 10 Cowboy games were tight and could have gone either way. It all evens out in the end.

    Mr. Vu…you, my man, are as delusional as that pecker head Jerry. It will take an act of God for next year’s defense to be top 12. And what separates the quarterbacks on your list, from Tony, besides a super bowl victory, is they can all win under pressure. Something Tony has clearly shown he can’t do.
