The famous FB rant post series makes its debut on www.suave4mayor.com and there's no better topic to start with than THE Dallas Cowboys.
As everyone who's within earshot of me knows I'm a lifelong Dallas Cowboys fan and am credited w/ coining the online nickname #BlueStarGang to describe the team I've dedicated my NFL loyalty to. So in short hand form I'll pitch my brief head coaching/gm moment to hold #CowboyNation'a team together until & beyond the return of #88 & #9 & #50 & well you get the point.

1. Use 2 & 3 TE sets more regularly
On this roster we have 3 uniquely different and talented Tight End players who almost NEVER see the field together. First Ballott Hall of Famer Jason Witten who does it all (Run Block, Catch, Pass Block) , Hybrid modern day pass catching TE Gavin Escobar (who physically mirrors a poor man's Jimmy Graham from former Saints' Glory), and hard nose work horse James Hannah (who consistently makes the roster every year but hardly sees the field). My plea is to incorporate at least 2 if not all 3 into offensive packages more often. Not only can this have a positive affect on the running game (using two TEs at the L.O.S. W/ one as a FB) it can also alleviate the pressure on a injury stricken WR depth chart that's in desperate need of single coverage looks.
2. Move Morris Caliborne to FS
As a former LSU corner back its my opinion that Mo' has NO BUSINESS playing zone coverage as a CB EVER! It's not his strength, not what he became a SEC star doing, and doesn't highlight his ultimate skill set. A move to FS allows him to ball hawk and use his natural instincts to roam the field and assert himself in disrupting opposing teams passing game. It also frees up Barry Church to assume what I feel may be a more natural position for him...hard hitting SS, instantly making our secondary among the biggest and most opposing in the NFC.
3. Personnel acquisitions
The Green Bay packers have 50 of the 53 players on their roster as home grown talents, meaning they were drafted by the Packer's organization. As professional football players the Green Bay system is all they know. Obviously this is the utopian society of football operations and not the norm...but something we should strive to achieve in the future. I say that b/c the quality of motto "next man up" when the injury bug bites is tested when you have to consistently reach into the Free Agent acquisition pool every time a contributor significant goes down.
Injuries at LB, RB, QB, WR, multiple positions along the defensive line have crippled the first quarter (and potentially first half) of this team's season. The itch to dial up free agents or negotiate trades on the open market becomes irresistible when you haven't assembled a depth chart of trusted personnel to carry out the team's football philosophy. While valuable pieces can be acquired via those free agent channels not everyone fits what you want to do and how you want to do it. Long term this is vital to the Dallas Cowboys and their road back to NFL superiority. This team has FINALLY established an identity. One that shouldn't switch when one or even several players go down to injury. (Brandon Weeden, Matt Cassel, Joseph Randle, Darren McFadden, & Linebackers who's names I haven't learned by heart yet this applies to you.)
4. We're in the NFC East.
Fortunately for us even w/ all of the injuries and setbacks we're still atop the division at 2-2. The Eagles are well...you've seen them, Washington is STILL Washington, & the Giants are...still the Giants. We have 2 in division wins already this season and players are coming back to the starting line up every week. Sean Lee looks close to being cleared to play this week, while Rolando McClain and Greg Hardy will make their season debuts. Also, here's a interesting stat (Credit "Verde" Gomez) the Patriots are a slightly above avg 9-7 following bye weeks in the Belecheck era with ONLY two of those wins coming in "blowout" fashion. #BlueStarGang #CowboysNation #Since1960 #KissTheRings
