The Dallas Cowboys currently have more questions at hand than answers

The Dallas Cowboys are 2-6 and heading into a tough Week 9 matchup against the daunting 7-0 Pittsburgh Steelers. With an elite defense and an explosive offense on the other side, it is sure to be one slobber knocker of a contest.

With that though and what we have been seeing this season from the Dallas Cowboys, it’s almost frightening to think about this team welcoming that team into the confines of their home stadium. The games must be played though and the Cowboys have another opportunity to come out displaying how much, if any, fight they have left in them.

We hope it’s enough to compete against this Steelers team, while we would pray for the miracle of victory. In any situation and with this current week in mind, here are three important questions at the top of our minds.

1. Did the defense turn a corner against Philadelphia?

This is a question that I can’t answer for certain. That goes for two reasons.

They still gave up a few big plays that they shouldn’t have, but they were also playing against Carson Wentz. There were a few things to be excited about though.

This defense looked as active and engaged as they have looked all season. The players were flying around the field and it seemed as though they made just as many, if not more plays, than those that were made against them.

That isn’t something that we have come to expect this season from this defense. Perhaps Jerry’s addition by subtraction method is having an impact.

The threat of losing your job can do that. For what it’s worth as well, Dontari Poe was the only Cowboy kneeling and though there can be a link made with Jerry’s history, let’s not play that game.

I drank the Kool-Aid early on and am not afraid to admit where I was wrong. I was wrong on Poe.

It wasn’t about his politics. It was about his production or lack thereof. That is why he was released and I totally agree with the move.
