How Awful Is The Dallas Cowboys Defense?

By Alex Al-Kazzaz


The Dallas Cowboys defense is currently the team's biggest problem. Honestly, that's been the problem for at least over ten years. The list of talent that's been on the defensive roster is endless, but the problem has plagued the team for the longest time!


There's a saying in football; defense wins championships. It's been 25 years since the Cowboys' last Super Bowl win. Since then, there's been much disappointment within the defense. In Dallas's case, it's not only been on defense, it's been the team overall! Dallas hasn't been the same since the controversial departure of Jimmy Johnson. Cowboys fans know that story well. They can't tell the story without expressing anger towards Jerry Jones.




Dallas has a lot of problems this year on defense. Problems with tackling, defensive coverage, inability to force turnovers, ridiculous penalties, and much more. The biggest problem is that they've already allowed too many points. For the first time since 1960, the Cowboys have allowed 38+ points in three straight games. Their allowing of 307 rushing yards against Cleveland was the most in Cowboys history. In addition, the Browns had 333 yards of offense in the first half! This defense may very well be the worst in Cowboys history. And Dallas has only played in FOUR games!


As far as getting the defense adjusted and fixed, it's unlikely to happen soon. The question would be where to even start? Defensive Coordinator Mike Nolan has a lot on his plate. The nightmare for Dallas may only continue and even get worse.
