Jared Allen Could Be the Answer for Dallas Cowboys’ Defensive Woes
After giving up nearly 500 passing yards to Matthew Stafford and the Detroit Lions, the Dallas Cowboys should make an offer for the Vikings defensive end. The Cowboys have no problem putting points on the board, ranking third in points on the year as well as 13th in total yards on the year. Adding an excellent pass rusher like Allen combined with DeMarcus Ware when he comes back from injury could be exactly what the team needs going forward.
Pass defense has been a problem for the Cowboys the entire year. Week in and week out the Cowboys have been finding themselves in shootouts with the opposing offenses. Following Calvin Johnson‘s career day, it is time for Dallas to make a move if they want to seriously make a run in the playoffs.
The ten-year veteran has spent the last six seasons with the Vikings. With Minnesota all but finished for the year already, Allen could be a valued asset for the Cowboys going forward. Allen has 21 tackles and 4.5 sacks on the year as well as one forced fumble. Combined with the Ware when he returns from his injury the Cowboys would have two of the better pass rushers in the league.
If the Cowboys want to have any shot at wining the NFC they need to shore up their defense in anyway that they can. Rob Ryan is in New Orleans right now so he is no longer there to take any of the blame. Unless the Cowboys find a way to help their secondary Tony Romo will find himself in a shootout each and every week going forward. Allen would provide the necessary pass rush to help create havoc in future opponents’ backfields and help alleviate some of the pressure these high powered offenses put on the Cowboys’ secondary. Unless Dallas can fix their defensive woes going forward, Cowboys’ fans are going to be in for yet another tumultuous roller-coaster ride for the rest of the season
