Cheap Cowboys Tyron Smith Jersey Sale For Youth

Dallas Cowboys coaches — those who remain, anyway — are set to return from vacation next week, and at some point they will head to Mobile, Alabama, for the Senior Bowl.

At the moment, the Cowboys need a tight ends coach, a linebackers coach, a secondary coach, a special-teams coordinator, a wide receivers coach and a quarterbacks coach. The front office and head coach Jason Garrett might already know who will fill some of those roles and just aren’t saying.

So let’s lay out what has happened to the staff since the season ended, and what might happen next:

WHO’S OUT?

Special-teams coordinator Rich Bisaccia — Despite being under contract and putting together a good unit the past few seasons, he was allowed to leave by the front office and join Jon Gruden with the Oakland Raiders. Bisaccia is respected across the league and desires to be a head coach one day. Getting back together with Gruden could help him.

Linebackers coach Matt Eberflus — He is expected to be Josh McDaniels’ defensive coordinator wherever the New England Patriots’ offensive coordinator lands a head-coaching job (Indianapolis Colts, cough, cough). He was elevated to passing-game coordinator in 2017 and was a key part of the coverage schemes the Cowboys used. He devised their dime package a couple of years ago. He bet on himself last year, choosing not to sign an extension with the Cowboys in hopes of becoming a coordinator in 2018.

Wide receivers coach Derek Dooley — He would have been back with the Cowboys in 2018 but was able to land the offensive coordinator job at Missouri. This move allows him the chance to get back on track to being a head coach one day.

Offensive line coach Frank Pollack — With Pro Bowlers Tyron Smith, Travis Frederick and Zack Martin on his unit, his job did not appear to be on the line after the 2017 season ended. But a change was made, anyway, even though he remained under contract. He ended up as the line coach with the Cincinnati Bengals.

Quarterbacks coach Wade Wilson — The longest-tenured assistant under Garrett (2007-17), he was Dak Prescott’s first backer on the staff prior to the 2016 draft. His contract expired, and he was told he would not return.

Secondary coach Joe Baker — He was told his contract would not be renewed. While he incorporated almost an entirely new secondary in 2017, the fact that the players the Cowboys let walk in free agency — such as Barry Church, Brandon Carr and Morris Claiborne — played better elsewhere did not help his cause.

Tight ends coach Steve Loney — He chose to retire after one season in his position, ending a coaching career that began in 1974.

WHO’S IN?

Offensive line coach Paul Alexander — He spent 23 years as the Bengals’ line coach and was able to put together some solid running game and pass protection schemes. He inherits what will be the best group he has coached and will be in charge of improving the pass protection while keeping the run game top notch. Over the years, he has changed his blocking scheme depending on the talent he has had.

Running backs coach Gary Brown — Sources say he is expected to return for his sixth season. He had interest from the Raiders and Houston Texans. He has had success with DeMarco Murray, Darren McFadden and Ezekiel Elliott since joining the Cowboys. He has also developed Keith Smith from a linebacker to a fullback and Rod Smith as an effective third-down back.

Sanjay Lal — A source said Lal will be the receivers coach after interviewing for the position last week. Miles Austin also interviewed for the spot and could be considered for another role on the staff, but Lal’s experience gave him the edge. The key question for the Cowboys and whoever coaches the receivers will be Dez Bryant’s future with the team.

WHO COULD BE IN?

Kellen Moore — After spending most of last season on the practice squad, he has interviewed for the quarterbacks coach job, and his close ties to Scott Linehan help his case. He has always been viewed as a coach-in-waiting. Considering that Linehan effectively runs the quarterback room as coordinator, it will allow Moore a chance to grow as a coach.

Keith O’Quinn — He has served as Bisaccia’s assistant since 2014. He has experience in coaching on both sides of the ball and comes from a scouting background. Considering how a special-teams unit is put together, the coach has to have an understanding of every level. The special-teams coordinator also has to work closely with Garrett. O’Quinn’s experience on the staff helps.

John Pagano — He is scheduled to meet with the club over the next few days. He ended last season as Oakland’s defensive coordinator, taking over for Ken Norton Jr. He has been an NFL assistant since 1996 and has extensive work as a linebackers coach, which is a sign the Cowboys are preparing for life without Eberflus. Pagano has experience in 4-3 and 3-4 systems and could be a solid resource for defensive coordinator Rod Marinelli.

Ray Horton — He won a Super Bowl ring with the Cowboys in 1992 as a defensive back and was considered for Garrett’s staff back in 2011. He was out of football last season after serving as Cleveland Browns defensive coordinator in 2016. While the Cowboys would like Greg Jackson to return to help the secondary, Horton has a lot of experience.

Offensive line coach Frank Pollack will not be back with the Dallas Cowboys in 2018, as he joined the Cincinnati Bengals on Thursday.

It is the sixth change on Jason Garrett’s staff since the season ended and perhaps the most significant, because of the resources the Cowboys have put in their offensive line and their desire to be a run-first team.

Paul Alexander, who spent more than 20 years with the Cincinnati Bengals, is interviewing with the Cowboys as Pollack’s replacement, according to a source. A source said Tom Cable, who was fired by the Seattle Seahawks and was a college teammate of offensive coordinator Scott Linehan, is also a candidate.

Assistant offensive line coach Marc Colombo, who played for the Cowboys from 2005-10, will also be in the mix.

Pollack took over for Bill Callahan after the 2014 season. Dallas was in the top 10 in rushing — including second in both 2016 and 2017 — in each of Pollack’s three seasons as the line coach.

During Pollack’s tenure, left tackle Tyron Smith, center Travis Frederick and right guard Zack Martin made the Pro Bowl each season and all three were first-team All-Pro picks in 2016. Pollack also oversaw the move of La’el Collins from left guard to right tackle in 2017.

Pass protection, however, was an issue in 2017. Dak Prescott was sacked 32 times after he was sacked 25 times as a rookie. The Cowboys missed Smith for three full games and all but three snaps of a fourth. In the first game Smith missed, Prescott was sacked eight times by the Atlanta Falcons, with backup tackles Chaz Green and Byron Bell giving up six sacks. Without Smith on the field, Prescott threw one touchdown pass. The protection was better with Smith on the field, but Prescott’s yard per attempt dropped from 8 to 6.8 in 2017.

Pollack joined the Cowboys in 2013 as Callahan’s assistant offensive line coach. When Callahan left for the Washington Redskins, Garrett promoted Pollack, who is a stickler for details and technique.

Pollack joins special-teams coordinator Rich Bisaccia, wide receivers coach Derek Dooley, quarterbacks coach Wade Wilson, secondary coach Joe Baker and tight ends coach Steve Loney as coaches not returning. Bisaccia was named the special-teams coach with the Oakland Raiders, and Dooley became the offensive coordinator at Missouri. Loney is retiring, and Wilson and Baker had expiring contracts.

Running backs coach Gary Brown, whose contract ran out, also reportedly interviewed with the Raiders and has drawn interest from at least one more team. The Cowboys, however, want to keep Brown. Passing game coordinator/linebackers coach Matt Eberflus and secondary coach Greg Jackson also have expiring contracts.

The changes Jerry Jones and Jason Garrett have alluded to since the Dallas Cowboys’ season ended have started.

According to multiple sources, special-teams coordinator Rich Bisaccia will be allowed to leave despite being under contract with the Cowboys for two more seasons, and quarterbacks coach Wade Wilson and secondary coach Joe Baker, whose contracts were set to expire, were told they will not be back with the team.

Bisaccia will most likely to join Jon Gruden with the Oakland Raiders.

The future of offensive line coach Frank Pollack is also in question, despite having three Pro Bowl players — Tyron Smith, Travis Frederick and Zack Martin — in place since 2014. Pollack took over as line coach in 2015; during his tenure the Cowboys have finished ninth, second and second in the NFL in rushing.

Pass protection, however, was an issue in 2017, especially with Smith missing three full games and most of a fourth because of injuries. The Cowboys allowed 32 sacks; 22 came in the final eight games, including eight against Atlanta without Smith. Dak Prescott threw just one touchdown pass in the games in which Smith did not play.

Bisaccia had been the Cowboys’ assistant head coach and special-teams coordinator since 2013. While the return games have not produced much, the Cowboys’ coverage teams have been among the best in the NFL. The Cowboys allowed just 75 punt return yards this season, the fewest in the league. Before a late-season slide, Dan Bailey had been the most accurate kicker in NFL history, and punter Chris Jones had his best season.

The Cowboys had made a commitment to adding or keeping key special-teams contributors over the years.

Wilson had been the quarterbacks coach since 2007. He helped the development of Tony Romo and Prescott, who earned Pro Bowl honors, but the Cowboys drafted just two quarterbacks during Wilson’s tenure: Stephen McGee in 2009 and Prescott in 2016. Both were fourth-round picks.

Baker, a college teammate of Garrett’s, was promoted to secondary coach in 2016 after spending four seasons as an assistant secondary or safeties coach. The Cowboys have not had a secondary member lead the team with more than three interceptions since Terence Newman had four in 2011. The Cowboys selected four defensive backs — Chidobe Awuzie, Jourdan Lewis, Xavier Woods and Marquez White — in last year’s draft after opting to let veterans Brandon Carr, Barry Church, Morris Claiborne and J.J. Wilcox leave in free agency.

Carr, Church and Claiborne were much more productive with their new teams than they had been with the Cowboys in their final seasons.

Despite a sprained lateral collateral ligament in his right knee, Dallas Cowboys left tackle Tyron Smith will play against the Seattle Seahawks on Sunday.

Smith went through his normal pregame stretching routine with strength and conditioning coach Mike Woicik and was pronounced fit to play. He is wearing a wrap on his knee and normally wears a brace as well. He went through one limited practice during the week and was listed as questionable.

Smith suffered the injury in the fourth quarter of last week’s victory over the Oakland Raiders. Protecting themselves against Smith not being able to play a full game, the Cowboys will have backup tackles Byron Bell and Chaz Green both active.

Bell took the first-team snaps in practice during the week.

Smith had been slowed by back, hip and groin injuries this season before injuring his knee and missing two games. He was named to the Pro Bowl for the fifth time in his career earlier this week.

Dallas Cowboys left tackle Tyron Smith will miss his second straight game with a groin injury, according to a source.

Smith went through a rehab session roughly three hours before kickoff that included resistance cords, pass sets and firing off the ball. On occasion he was noticeably favoring his leg.

With Smith out, Byron Bell will get the start at left tackle against the Philadelphia Eagles. With Smith out last week against the Atlanta Falcons, the Cowboys allowed eight sacks, including four on his replacement, Chaz Green. Bell allowed two sacks in his two series of work in the fourth quarter of the 27-7 loss.

There is hope Smith could be able to play on Thanksgiving against the Los Angeles Chargers in four days. He has not practiced since suffering the injury in the fourth quarter of the Nov. 5 win against the Kansas City Chiefs.

This will be Bell’s first start for the Cowboys and his first at left tackle since the 2015 season finale while with the Tennessee Titans.

With Smith out, the Cowboys will be down three starters because of injury with linebacker Sean Lee not playing due to a hamstring strain and safety Jeff Heath out because of a concussion. Justin Durant will replace Lee in the starting lineup, while rookie Xavier Woods will replace Heath.

The Cowboys will also be without running back Ezekiel Elliott, who will miss his second of six games because of a suspension.

The Cowboys will go with just two tailbacks against Philadelphia, with Darren McFadden something of a surprise inactive. With Elliott suspended, the belief was the Cowboys would go with Alfred Morris, Rod Smith and McFadden in a committee approach. McFadden had just one carry last week against Atlanta and lost 2 yards.

A groin injury could keep Dallas Cowboys left tackle Tyron Smith out of Sunday’s game against the Atlanta Falcons.

Coach Jason Garrett said Smith was checked out again Monday after he was unable to finish the 28-17 win against the Kansas City Chiefs

“We’ll see how he feels when he comes in [Tuesday] and how to proceed during the week,” he said.

Smith has not practiced on a Wednesday over the past month because of the back tightness that has crept up occasionally since training camp. He was also dealing with a hip strain. He missed two games last season with a back injury that Garrett has said is not related to the tightness he has dealt with since the summer.

If Smith can’t play, the Cowboys could go with Chaz Green, who played the final six snaps against the Chiefs, or Byron Bell at left tackle.

Dez Bryant is dealing with ankle and knee injuries, but Garrett said the receiver will be “day to day.” After the game, Bryant said he felt OK, but he was not able to play the last half of the fourth quarter. When asked about the knee injury, which limited Bryant in practice two weeks ago, Garrett said, “we don’t think it’s anything significant.”

In 2015 and ’16, Bryant missed 10 games due to foot and knee injuries.

Defensive tackle Brian Price will undergo surgery Tuesday on his knee and should be placed on injured reserve, according to Garrett. The Cowboys aren’t sure how they will fill Price’s roster spot at the moment, but Lewis Neal could be called up from the practice squad.

When the talk about dominant line play is discussed regarding the Dallas Cowboys, it’s assumed widely that it is about their offensive line with All-Pros Tyron Smith, Travis Frederick and Zack Martin.

In Monday’s 28-17 win against the Arizona Cardinals, the Cowboys’ defensive line was the story.

The Cowboys recorded six sacks of Carson Palmer, all by defensive linemen. It was the first time since Sept. 22, 2013, against the St. Louis Rams that the Cowboys had six sacks in a game.

The Cowboys have 11 sacks in three games. They did not reach 11 sacks last season until their sixth game.

DeMarcus Lawrence had the first three-sack game of his career and leads the NFL with 6.5 for the season. He had one sack last season and his career high is eight in 2015. He became the first Cowboy since DeMarcus Ware to have three straight multi-sack games. Ware accomplished his feat over the 2011 and ’12 seasons.

Lawrence is just the third player to open the season with three straight games with more than a sack, joining Mark Gastineau (1984) and Kevin Greene (1998).

“He’s got such a great spirit about him,” Jason Garrett said. “He’s defending the run. He’s affecting the quarterback. He’s making plays that change the game. Just watch him, he’s like a kid out there. He’s running around and he’s got a big smile on his face. That spirit is contagious to the rest of the defense and the rest of the team.”

Maliek Collins added two sacks. He and Lawrence are the first Cowboys defenders with multiple sacks in the same game since Tyrone Crawford and Jeremy Mincey had two apiece against the Philadelphia Eagles on Dec. 14, 2014.

Crawford had the Cowboys’ sixth sack.

“We don’t want to be the byproduct of nothing,” Collins said. “We want to be the show.”

The Cowboys used their three-man front more against the Cardinals than they had in the first two games. Collins and Crawford were able to record sacks with just the three-man pressure.

The Cowboys don’t have big names on their line although Lawrence might be growing into one. Collins had a productive rookie season (five sacks). Crawford is healthier than he has been in two seasons. Benson Mayowa, who led the Cowboys with six sacks a year ago, had a quarterback pressure Monday. So did Taco Charlton.

The pass rush was made better because the Cowboys stopped the run a week after allowing a 100-yard rusher for the first time since the 2015 season finale. Arizona ran 21 times for 49 yards. Chris Johnson carried 12 times for 17 yards. The Cowboys did not allow a run longer than 6 yards.

“Very dominant,” Lawrence said when asked how dominant the Cowboys’ defensive line can be. “We have to focus on us and not our opponents and get better every week.”
