Cowboys’ Top 3 Weaknesses in 2012
Over at NBC, I posted a short list of the Cowboys’ major weaknesses. Two of them won’t surprise you, but one is a little bit off-the-map. Here’s one of the not-so-shocking choices:
The interior line is getting beaten to death in the media, but for good reason. I’ve tried to find something positive from them during my preseason film study, but I just can’t do it. Phil Costa has been injured and David Arkin has been horrific at center. Nate Livings has probably been the best of the bunch, but I’d give him just a C- grade in his early preseason work.
I’m really concerned about the interior line. The guards and center are way more vital than people think, and poor play up the middle can really ruin an offense’s chances of consistently moving the football. I simply don’t see how the Cowboys will get even average interior line play in 2012.
