IRVING, Texas – Coming out of the bye week, there are plenty of question marks surrounding this team as they prepare for Sunday’s showdown with the surging Giants. Football analyst Bryan Broaddus answers three pressing questions, regarding the return of
Broaddus: I believe that you will see less Terrance Williams. As well as Williams played earlier in the season, we are now seeing some slipping in his play. It’s not that Williams has been terrible but Beasley is more consistent when it comes to make those types of plays that keep drives going and with this offense struggling badly on 3rd down, you need a clutch player like Beasley to convert those tough downs. Cole Beasley is too valuable in these types of games to take off the field. With Austin returning to the lineup, it should help all these receivers especially

Broaddus: It was a shame that Jeff Heath had a poor game against the Saints but like I said before, he wasn’t the only player on defense that didn’t play well. If you asked me to describe a trait of Heath’s that would have been his strength, I would have said his tackling but that let him down two weeks ago. It appears that Wilcox will be working his way back into the lineup and I was told during practice on Monday, he received a good bit of work. Where Heath had his issues against the Vikings and Saints, let’s not forget that Wilcox has had his share of problems as well, missing tackles on key 3rd down plays against the Redskins and Eagles. Both players are physical and where Heath is better than Wilcox is on the mental side of the game but when you struggle to tackle consistently or you tend to give up plays in the passing game, then the coaches have to make that switch. With Wilcox back in the starting lineup, it will help the defense but it also now allows Heath to return to his role as that core special teamer where he excels.
