#5- Will the defensive line be better in 2014?
Clearly there were problems with the entire defense last season and it wasn’t a pretty sight. It was ranked as the worst defense in the league and set franchise records for yards and points allowed. While a lot of people will continue to point out that the secondary is the cause of a lot of problems, you have to shift most of the blame to the defensive line. How can a secondary defend against the pass when the opposing quarterback has an eternity to find an open receiver? Last season the pass-rush disappeared and quarterbacks had a field day against the Cowboys. Now the defensive line doesn’t have defensive end DeMarcus Ware and defensive tackle Jason Hatcher anymore, two of the Cowboys top sack masters. Will the new additions of Henry Melton, Demarcus Lawrence and returning defensive end Tyrone Crawford bring more pressure? Cowboy’s defensive coordinator Rod Marinelli better hope so or it will be another long season.
