As the saying goes, a chain is only as strong as its weakest link. Well, if the Cowboys are a chain, they’re only as strong as their offensive line.
When it hasn’t been false starts and holding calls, it’s been little protection for Tony Romo and few holes for DeMarco Murray and the run game.
But according to Cowboys executive vice president Stephen Jones, the front five enters Week 6 coming off their best showing of the young season. Jones said Monday that the starting group of Tyron Smith, Doug Free, Ryan Cook, Nate Livings and Mackenzy Bernadeau is benefiting from finally playing together after injuries prevented that from happening during training camp.
“I do think they’re starting to come together,” Jones said on 105.3 The Fan [KRLD-FM]. “Believe it or not, we believe they played their best game against the Bears. (They) had gotten rid of the penalties and we’re actually doing some good things. We just got behind because of turnovers. I feel like we’re heading in a good direction.”
