Cowboys coach Jason Garrett made a rapid shift earlier this week when he went from suggesting that the team’s coaching staff would remain intact heading into the 2019 season to saying that no decisions had been made a short time later.Based on what Cowboys owner Jerry Jones had to say on 105.3 The Fan on Tuesday Larry Allen Jersey Stitched , the second answer was the correct one. Jones said that anyone saying that they know the fate of offensive coordinator Scott Linehan and other members of the staff is wrong because “I don’t know this morning and I’m the last say.”“Why would I put some kind of statement out that says this is what we’re going to do when we might have an opportunity here next week? This is the time when these things are thought about,鈥?Jones said, via the team’s website. 鈥淭his is the time when they are chewed on. This is when you may see an opportunity next week that you didn’t know existed this week in the area of personnel or in the area of coaching. And I’m not trying to be cute here. I’m just saying that one of the advantages that we have is that we can operate with that kind of flexibility.”Jones did say that he likes “the direction we’re going” and signs are that the Cowboys will be moving forward without any significant changes to the cast of characters, but Jones made sure it was clear that he reserves “the right to change my mind” and he hasn’t pinned himself down to anything at this point.

The Cowboys chose Hill with their first pick of the 2019 draft (58th overall) to supplement the middle of the defensive line. Hill’s tabbed to play the 3-tech spot Youth Bob Lilly Jersey , and will be asked to use his athleticism and quick-twitch get-off to create havoc in the opposing backfield. That’s something the Cowboys need, especially now that David Irving will no longer be with the team.But there’s another aspect to the middle of the defensive line, and that’s clogging the middle and stuffing the run. The Cowboys got worked toward the end of the season in that department, here’s how John Owning explained it:Anybody who watched the playoff loss to Los Angeles knows the torture of the Rams running backs ripping off huge chunks of yards right through the middle of the Cowboys defense. It was maddening and the Cowboys couldn’t do anything about it.This offseason, they made a move to help with the problem. In fact, SB Nation calls it “the under-the-radar move to love” for the Cowboys this offseason. That was the signing of Christian Covington.Covington was a part-time player for Houston Bob Lilly Jersey Stitched , but he is particularly effective in handling the run. We go back to our friend John Owning again who did a full breakdown of Covington when the Cowboys signed him. Check out Covington’s technique against the run.He does an excellent job of engaging the blocker and then mirroring him down the line while still controlling him with his hands. He drives his man slowly back until he is finally right in front of the ball-carrier. Covington prevents any holes from opening up on the play side and helps in preventing a cutback lane. Obviously J.J. Watt causes the real disruption on this play, acting almost as a 3-tech in this alignment, but Covington does the unsung work of containing his blocker and driving him back into the play side. This is the dirty work that needs to be done when handling the run. Covington also had his best year as a pass rusher in 2018, racking up 3.5 sacks in a part-time role. That’s not going to be his calling card, but the more he can show in that area the better his chances are to live up to the “underrated” tag that has been given to his acquisition. The Cowboys have a lot of competition going on at the defensive tackle spot. At the 1-tech position, Antwaun Woods returns Youth Terrell Owens Jersey , as does Daniel Ross. And with a full contingent at the 3-tech position, there will be a fierce battle down the roster for a spot on the 53-man roster. We are reminded by K.D. that comp picks could play a role if all things are equal at the bottom of the roster.The Cowboys will gladly “lose” that comp pick if Covington can be a force in the middle, especially if he can help shut down the opposition’s run game. We’ll see if we love this under-the-radar move at the end of the season.
