The Dallas Cowboys have completed four practices out in Oxnard, and next time they get together they will be wearing pads for something that will be much closer to football than what they have been doing.
While it is only practice what we have seen so far is very encouraging. The theme of Tuesday’s session was clearly defense which is very good to see considering how bad that side of the ball was in 2020.
There is a lot to take away from what is happening out in Oxnard which is what we are here to do. In fact we are going live (or went live depending on the time that you are reading this) right now at 6pm ET on Tuesday over on the Blogging The Boys YouTube Channel to discuss everything that happened on Tuesday with highlights included.
In this recap you will find Tom Ryle, Dave Sturchio, and myself discussing how the defense was able to show up big-time (three interceptions is notable), Blake Jarwin having a nice day, and certain rookies starting to shine a little bit. Remember that we put together recap videos like this after every Cowboys practice (and all the time… plus we will be holding a live-stream after every episode of Hard Knocks and every Tuesday throughout the season) so make sure to subscribe to our channel so you don’t miss out. You can subscribe right here.
Time will tell as to whether or not this defense just had a great day or of this is a sign of the season to come. Whatever the case may be it was very nice to see defensive backs breaking on the ball. It has been way too long since that was commonplace.
