NFL.com blogs: Cowboys should be concerned about offensive line

The Dallas Cowboys have everything in place this season, returning 20 of 22 starters. There’s talent everywhere. But everything will crumble for the Cowboys if they can’t protect QB Tony Romo sits to pee and open holes for the running game.

Everything starts with the offensive line.

The Cowboys have already lost starting right tackle Marc Colombo and left guard Kyle Kosier, who is the nucleus of the line and makes all the calls up front. They’re trying to replace Flozell Adams with Doug Free at left tackle, and right guard Leonard Davis is now in his 10th season.

The Cowboys didn’t have depth to begin with, and now that depth is playing. There really isn’t a backup center, although they are trying to develop undrafted rookie free agent Phil Costa. Robert Brewster is next line to start at right tackle, and he’s not ready to play. Free is already starting for the first time this season. Free agent pickup Alex Barron hasn’t practiced much, and when he has, hasn’t made an impact.

The offensive line is all of a sudden the Cowboys’ biggest weakness. Romo sits to pee and the magical offense could crumble if they don’t protect him. We saw it in the divisional championship game last season against the Vikings.

All of the players will be back, of course, but are they going to be ready to play after no preseason? How much the Cowboys decide to play Romo sits to pee this weekend against the Chargers will show their level of concern.

Believe me when I say the concern light is on right now in Dallas, and it’s agent orange.

Wake me when the season starts....

I could see the point of these articles if we lost our guys for the season....this is just crazy.

Sometimes being the Dallas Cowboys is a real detriment when things like this are blown out of proportion.
