Cheap Cowboys Chidobe Awuzie Jersey Sale 60% Off

With Matt Eberflus leaving, the Dallas Cowboys have reached an agreement with Kris Richard to be their defensive passing game coordinator, sources confirmed.

Richard spent the previous three seasons as the Seattle Seahawks’ defensive coordinator but was a surprise dismissal after the 2017 season by head coach Pete Carroll. Eberflus, the Cowboys linebackers coach since 2011, is expected to become defensive coordinator with the Indianapolis Colts once Josh McDaniels is named head coach following Super Bowl LII.

Eberflus was given the passing game coordinator title last season, during which he effectively managed the back seven of the defense and relayed the calls by coordinator Rod Marinelli, who also runs the defensive line.

Richard helped develop the famed “Legion of Boom” secondary with Richard Sherman, Earl Thomas and Kam Chancellor, before becoming the coordinator after Dan Quinn left to be head coach of the Atlanta Falcons.

The Cowboys run a similar scheme as that of the Seahawks; but with young secondary players including Chidobe Awuzie, Jourdan Lewis, Xavier Woods, Byron Jones and Jeff Heath, Richard can help their development.

The Cowboys also need a linebackers coach and have interviewed John Pagano.They are close to hiring Kellen Moore as quarterbacks coach. And they are expected to keep Gary Brown as running backs coach.

Dallas already has hired Paul Alexander (offensive line) and Sanjay Lal (wide receivers), and it is looking at Keith O’Quinn as special-teams coach. The tight ends job remains open.

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.

Here’s a look at the first-half impact of the Dallas Cowboys’ draft class:

Taco Charlton, DE, first round: He finally picked up his first sack of the season against the Kansas City Chiefs and he hopes that opens the dam in the second half. The Cowboys have been able to rush the passer effectively without him making much of an impact, but they need more. The Cowboys will give him snaps as the season progresses to show what he can do. Grade: Below average

Chidobe Awuzie, DB, second round: A hamstring strain has limited his effectiveness for most of the season. After a strong summer, the Cowboys wanted to use him in their subpackages, but he hasn’t been able to stay healthy. He could become a full-time safety when he gets back on the field. Grade: Incomplete

Jourdan Lewis, CB, third round: Lewis was not able to practice much in the summer due to a hamstring injury, but he showed quickly that he was not afraid of the big stage. He played so well that the Cowboys decided to part ways with veteran Nolan Carroll. Lewis has natural ball skills and has one of the Cowboys’ three interceptions on the season. He could become a starter in the base defense soon. Grade: Above average

Ryan Switzer, WR, fourth round: He was drafted because of his return ability, but Switzer’s decision-making has been spotty at times. He has also yet to break a big return in either the punt or kickoff game. Switzer was always going to be limited in his role offensively, due to the receiving targets ahead of him on the depth chart. The Cowboys need him to have a greater influence on field position. Grade: Average

Xavier Woods, S, sixth round: In the past few weeks, he has moved into the subpackages and been part of a rotation of safeties. The Cowboys believe he has the skills to make plays on the ball and has really good awareness. Woods needs to shore up his tackling to earn more trust from the coaches, but he can see plays develop quickly. Grade: Average

Marquez White, CB, sixth round: White showed flashes in the summer and in preseason, but he was among the Cowboys’ final roster cuts. He has spent the regular season on the practice squad. Unless there are injuries, he will likely spend the entire season on the practice squad, with an eye to a bigger role in 2018. Grade: Incomplete

Noah Brown, WR, seventh round: He has done a nice job mostly in a blocking role offensively. Brown is a big body and is willing to take on defenders, if necessary. He made one of the key blocks on an Ezekiel Elliott touchdown catch. Brown needs to improve his technique as a receiver, but he has raw skills worth developing. Grade: Average

Authentic Womens Chris Jones Jersey-Cowboys Fan Shop

Statistically speaking, Dallas Cowboys punter Chris Jones has had better seasons than the one he is in the middle of right now.

He is 29th in punting average at 43.9 yards. He is 19th in net average.

Statistics don’t tell the full story.

Of Jones’ 20 punts, 12 have been inside the 20. He has just one touchback and that’s because Xavier Woods failed to down a punt inside the Denver Broncos 5 in Week 2.

Jones is making the opponent drive the field with how well he is punting. Unfortunately the Cowboys’ defense is not doing its part. The last three times Jones has pinned opponents at their 12 or worse, the Cowboys have allowed two touchdowns and a field goal with the teams driving 88, 90 and 78 yards.

In the Cowboys’ season-opening win against the New York Giants, he pinned the Giants inside their 10 on four punts.

“Once you kind of get to the midfield area you’re pushing for inside the 20 with no touchbacks,” Jones said. “That’s a perfect world. I think the main thing is just understanding that the 14 is better than kicking a touchback and them being at the 20 or get one at the 20 with a fair catch instead of saying, ‘OK, let’s try to put it at the 1.’”

When Jones came to the Cowboys in 2011 as a rookie free agent, he was able to watch Pro Bowler Mat McBriar. Jones did not become the Cowboys’ full-time punter until 2013, but in watching McBriar over two offseasons and training camps he was able to learn the flip-flop punt. McBriar’s background with Australian Rules Football made it a natural kick. Jones had to learn it from scratch.

“He was awesome at it,” Jones said. “He would drop it in a bucket, but I didn’t have any background with it ever. In college it was like you’d hit a little nose up, coffin corner type stuff. The more I worked with that (flip flop) I kind of understood that I could only kick it so far and place it well.”

It took Jones a couple of years to feel confident enough to use it in a game. Like a golfer with multiple wedges, he has learned how to hold the ball in a certain way that he can almost dictate the hang time and distance.

“If it’s more straight up and down, the more it’s going to spin but the less distance I’m going to get,” Jones said. “If I hold it a little lower, lay the ball back, it’s going to be more of an outward drive. Yeah, I’ve had to learn that and kind of figure it out.”

Jones came to the Cowboys with a strong left leg, but he learned quickly his job is not about only how far he can hit the ball. His directional work, as well as his flip-flop kicks, has played the biggest part in the Cowboys allowing only 5.6 yards per return.

He admits he has thoughts of the long ball, but they are fleeting.

“In this league it will get you in trouble. It has the potential to anyways,” said Jones, who signed a four-year extension with the Cowboys over the summer. “Just over the years, the scheme that we have, I just feel comfortable in it and (the flip flop) has kind of become my bread and butter now.”

Authentic Youth Jourdan Lewis #27 Jersey-Cowboys Fan Shop

The Dallas Cowboys’ work week is over. Given the team’s bye this weekend, the next time players are due back at The Star is Tuesday at noon for a conditioning run and then meetings.

The two days of practice this week were light. They featured a lot of Cowboys versus Cowboys work, starters against starters — at least those who could practice — and backups against backups. There was not much of a deep dive into what has led to the team’s 2-3 start. That will be saved for the coaches’ work.

But as the Cowboys get ready to come back from the bye, what can they change to make sure 2-3 doesn’t turn into 8-8, 7-9 or worse?

This is more difficult than people believe. The Twitter-verse wants the Cowboys to trade for Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman or a great safety or a pass-rusher. Some want the Cowboys to sign free-agent cornerback Darrelle Revis or another big-name, past-his-prime player.

Is a trade possible? Sure. But the last time the Cowboys made a significant addition at the trade deadline was wide receiver Roy Williams in 2008. That didn’t work out. That doesn’t mean you never make a deal again, but few big names change teams. Yes, the New England Patriots traded Chandler Jones and Jamie Collins and still won a Super Bowl, but everything about the Patriots is the exception and not the norm.

By cutting cornerback Nolan Carroll, the Cowboys have put their faith in third-round draft pick Jourdan Lewis. Carroll was a progress stopper, so he’s out. Now Lewis has to play better and reward the team for its faith over the final 11 weeks.

The Cowboys want to play rookie Chidobe Awuzie more at safety, but he can’t seem to steer clear of hamstring strains. They also want to play rookie safety Xavier Woods more. The Atlanta Falcons had success with multiple rookies and younger players in their secondary last year, but it’s a gamble.

Dallas’ vaunted offensive line needs to play better too. One change could come at left guard, where Chaz Green and Jonathan Cooper have shared starting duties the first five games. Will the Cowboys give Byron Bell a chance to start, which could help their interior pass protection but maybe take away some of their versatility in the run game?

Linebacker Sean Lee’s return to the lineup will absolutely help a defense that has been ripped apart in the two games he has missed. Linebacker Anthony Hitchens should be better as he gets accustomed to game speed after missing the first four games with a tibial plateau fracture. If that happens, the D’s quality of play should be better, and second-year linebacker Jaylon Smith won’t be asked to play so many snaps.

Dallas shouldn’t give away top-end future draft picks in hopes of hitting the jackpot. The Cowboys need their top players to perform better, they need their role players to play better, and they need their coaches to coach better.

The Cowboys’ biggest improvement in the final 11 games has to come from within.

Authentic Women Damontre Moore Jersey Cheap For Sale

FRISCO, Texas — With defensive end Damontre Moore returning from a two-game suspension this week, the Dallas Cowboys waived linebacker Jayrone Elliott, who was acquired in a trade from the Green Bay Packers on Sept. 3.

Moore has been able to work out at the Cowboys’ practice facility because he was suspended under the substance-abuse policy, but he has not been able to take part in meetings or practices. He had two sacks in the preseason. The Cowboys had a roster exemption through Wednesday for Moore, who could help the pass rush immediately, but opted to make the move today.

Elliott dressed for the season opener against the New York Giants but was inactive last week against the Denver Broncos.

Per the terms of the trade with Green Bay, the Cowboys will now keep their seventh-round pick in 2018 unless they re-sign Elliott in the future and he is on the 46-man roster for at least two more games.

With the trade presently wiped out, the Cowboys will have all but their fifth-round pick in next spring’s draft. They gave up that pick to the New York Jets to take safety Xavier Woods in the sixth round. The Cowboys could also gain a number of compensatory picks for their free-agent defections.
