Jason Garrett is not happy with the Dallas Cowboys’ defense right now. The Cowboys were blown out by the San Diego Chargers, 27-7, in their first 2014 NFL preseason game and the quarterbacks didn’t throw an incomplete pass until the 14:24 mark of the fourth quarter. While most of the starters were out of action, ESPN reported on Saturday that Garrett said the team’s discipline was not very good in the game.
That is pretty bad to hear. The fact that the reserves were playing was excusable and many of the players on the field won’t even be on an NFL team when the 2014 NFL preseason ends. However, discipline is a coaching problem and Dallas is hoping that aspect of the defensive play is better in 2014 with Rod Marinelli coaching the players this year.
It will be an uphill battle for the Dallas Cowboys, especially without their three best defensive players from 2013. DeMarcus Ware and Jason Hatcher left via free agency while Sean Lee is lost for the season with an injury. There is a lot to prove for the young Dallas Cowboys’ players in 2014. They also have a lot to live up to. Here is a look at the best Dallas Cowboys’ defensive players, by position, in the team’s history.
