Dave Campo on his worst day was better than Richards on his best day. Campo was not a great HC, a lot of that goes on an aging roster, stupid trades, and poor drafting by Jerry, but a lot on Dave, who wss more friend than boss to the players. Still, he was a helluva CB coach. Our DBs created havoc in the passing game and actually forced turnovers. Richard is overhyped because of the immensely talented Legion of Boom.

Leighton Vander Esch feeling “wonderful” after neck surgery

Cowboys linebacker Leighton Vander Esch had neck surgery after the 2019 season and initial word from the team was that they expected him to be able to do some work during the offseason program.

That was the plan, anyway. Vander Esch and the Cowboys were forced to pivot to new plans when offseason programs went virtual because of the COVID-19 pandemic, but the good news is that Vander Esch says he’s doing well in his recovery from surgery.

Vander Esch appeared on The ‘Boys & Girl Podcast recently and said that he’s training without restrictions in hopes of getting back on the field this summer.

“I am doing wonderful,” Vander Esch said. “I feel as good now as I ever have, before I even got hurt. I mean, I’m ready to roll. I’ve been training full-go for a couple of months now, so it’s not holding me back whatsoever. I feel, like I said, just as good as I ever have. I’m just excited to play football at this point and get back on the field. Whenever they give us the green light to go, we’ll be ready.”

The Cowboys re-signed Sean Lee, but didn’t add a linebacker in the draft or in free agency. That suggests confidence in how Vander Esch and his neck will fare once the Cowboys are back together this year.

Anywhere on the line.
I have no idea what Nolan will come up with, but LVE, Smith, and Lee will have to deliver a bunch of snaps and big plays
From what I've read Nolan likes the big boys to swallow blockers and push everyone backwards which is pretty standard stuff, but also disguise who's doing what in the back 7.
He likes to disguise coverages and pretty sneaky with his blitzes as well.
I've also read he loses his shit if you don't know where you're supposed to be to fit the defense he calls.
That would be nice.
Yes our LB group better be on point.

This is one of the groups that intrigues me the most. If they can stay healthy and if McCoy/Poe do what they were brought here to do Jaylon/LVE could be one of the best LB tandems in the league. Sean Lee is probably the best backup LB in the league, but again health is an issue. I would expect this unit to get another dose of youth in the next draft.

Cowboys offices opened up today and good ole Jeruh is back to work

Maybe something good will come of this Covid-19 and it will take the old man down and out of the picture for good

yeah, LB health history and depth are concerns, but at least they are top notch raw talent.

Nolan has had quite a while to figure out he'll defend a typical NFL O. How fast they can gel and execute will be interesting. They have the play speed and position flex in the back 7 … they just have to produce an average number of turnovers. The thing that bugs me is our DBs seem to be missing thumbs.

I've never seen a secondary drop so may INTs

Aldon Smith, the seventh overall pick in the 2011 draft who last played in 2015, is back in the NFL.

A source with direct knowledge of the situation tells PFT that Smith’s application for reinstatement under the substance-abuse policy has been granted.

Smith, who has played for both the 49ers and Raiders, has been suspended on multiple occasions, for various off-field issues. He was dominant early in his career, averaging nearly one sack per game.

The Cowboys signed Smith pending his potential reinstatement. As of May 26, he officially will join the Dallas roster.

It remains to be seen whether Smith can play like he once did. Very few players return to football after so much time off. If Smith, who’ll be 31 in September, can get back to what he once was, the Cowboys will have dramatically boosted their pass rush.

Well we might end up having 2 new starting CB’s in Diggs and Robinson. Chedo might also be starting at FS. They’re the most unknown out of any position group on the team. We’re going to find out if Al Harris can do a better job of coaching his guys up than Kris Richard did.
