The Cowboys made defensive end Taco Charlton a healthy scratch for the second straight game when they faced off against the Colts last Sunday and the results of that game has team owner Jerry Jones thinking it might be time for a change to the gameday roster.

Cowboys coach Jason Garrett said last week that players have to “earn their opportunity,” but the play of the defense in a 23-0 loss has Jones pondering a move in a different direction. Jones felt the team didn’t get enough penetration against the Indianapolis offensive line and that the 2017 first-round pick might have more luck on that front.

“Maybe we ought to get him in there,” Jones said on 105.3 The Fan, via the Dallas Morning News.

Charlton missed time with a shoulder injury earlier in the year and has appeared in nine games overall this season. He had 16 tackles and a sack in those outings.

  1. The defense didn’t play it’s best game. With that said the Colta dont give up many sacks. I would trust the Cowboys defensive co OP chest on this one. It has been best unit on this team all season. If Taco hasn’t earned playing time it’s for a reason.

  2. Considering the offense turned the ball over twice, and scored 0 points, the defense allowing 23 points is not that bad. The run defense was poor, and tackling was an issue but those are things the cowboys have been good at all year and likely resulted from lack of concentration.

    The way the offense played, now that’s a massive cause for concern.

  3. The problem isn’t with your defense, Jerry, it’s with your offensive offense. For once in your life, put your massive ego aside and get a better offensive coordinator. In case you didn’t notice, your defense held the Colts to 23 points while your “offense” scored 0.

  4. This team only goes as far as Dak can take them. So it’s home for the Holidays because Dak is HORRIBLE!!! Colts left him running lanes all day and he never took any chances.

  5. Maybe, just maybe the Colts’ O-Line – which was neglected to the point of almost getting Andrew Luck killed under the previous regime – outplayed the Cowboy’s D-Line? Hmmm?

    Colts OL is playing better, not great but Luck is getting the ball out fast, avoiding sacks. Dak’s “floaters” helped the Colt’s too. Remember, this same Colts team scored ZERO the previous week.

  7. C’mon Jerry, just cancel your Tuesday morning pontification on the segment YOU created for yourself. You’re not the coach and shouldn’t be talking about these things with anyone. That is the coaches job if they choose to do so. I get that you want the spotlight and trying to make people believe you’re a football guy that makes the team go, but other than hiring Jimmy, and letting Will McClay do the scouting and player personnel stuff, what do you really know about the game other than charging preposterous amounts at the concession stands? So sick of hearing this wannabe. Oh yea, and fire Garrett and Linehan.

    Signed,

    Cowboy fans all over DFW
