Cowboys Appear Strong At Linebacker

According to ESPN’s Scouts, Inc., the Cowboys have the strongest linebacking corps in the NFL.  It would be hard to argue with that assessment with people like DeMarcus Ware, Greg Ellis and Zach Thomas in the ranks.  Consider the year Bradie James and Akin Ayodele had last year, the Cowboys certainly do have wealth at the position.

Ayodele left during the offseason due to one of the many trades with Miami, but with other potential starters available such as Anthony Spencer, Bobby Carpenter and Kevin Burnett, he will hardly be missed.  What do you think, fans, do we have the best LB’s in the league? 

The Chargers came in second on this deal with the two Shawns, Shawne Merriman and Shaun Phillips, but other than these two, they aren’t nearly as deep as Dallas at the position.  Not many teams are for that matter, except maybe last year’s Patriots, but they’re getting a little long-in-the-tooth, especially Bruschi and Vrable, which is why they drafted three very good college LB’s. 

I’m also willing to bet that the secondary will get high rankings, possibly the highest, this year.  Combine that with a veteran defensive line and you have all the makings for a great defensive team.  Isn’t it said that defense is what wins championships,  just ask the Giants or Bears.  The Cowboys should, and I emphasise the word SHOULD, have one of the best defenses in the league this year, which could take them farther than they’ve been in the last decade or so.
