Rob: I think it's just a matter of getting enough pressure, being aggressive and getting in the right position to make those types of plays. This defense is certainly capable; last year after four games the Cowboys had 11 takeaways (9 interceptions, 2 fumble recoveries) that led to seven scores. Here's what Wade Phillips said on Monday:
"They usually come in bunches but we just haven't had them. We started off really well last year, but it hasn't happened yet. But I think it will come. We have too many talented guys that have ball skills."
Mailbag: Will opponents attack hybrid safeties?
How do the Cowboys counter this strategy?
Mailbag: Why no touchdowns from receivers?
I find it concerning that no Cowboys wide receiver has caught a touchdown pass since last season's wild-card win over the Buccaneers, now a four-game streak. Any explanation for this?
Mailbag: How do they fix red-zone troubles?
I wasn't too worried about the red-zone offense after the Jets game, but now after really struggling at the Cardinals, there seems to be a trend growing here. Is it the banged-up offensive line? No power running back? The play-calling? How do they get this fixed?
Mailbag: Diggs make that much difference?
Is this how we are going to look moving forward without Trevon Diggs?
Mailbag: How do dynamics of secondary change?
Now that Trevon Diggs is lost for the rest of the season, how does that change the dynamics of the defensive secondary?
Mailbag: Does new offense fit Gallup's play?
I find it odd that Michael Gallup hasn't been more a part of the offense. Could he potentially be a trade candidate?
Mailbag: Encouraged or worried about O-line?
Should we be more worried about the wear and tear already on our offensive line starters?
Mailbag: Is red-zone offense really a concern?
Is too much being made about the Cowboys' red-zone offense? Or is this something that could be a problem going forward?
Mailbag: Thinking behind using Turpin more?
I was surprised how Mike McCarthy utilized KaVontae Turpin in the offense. I like it, but what's the thinking behind getting Turpin more involved?
Mailbag: Tight ends' pass-catching a concern?
The negative that stood out to me was the passes that the tight ends failed to haul in. I know the rainy night played a part, but is this a concern at all going forward?
Mailbag: Are the Cowboys really this good?
40-0, on the road, against a division rival … are the Cowboys really this good? Is it time to book a flight to Las Vegas for the Super Bowl?
