Cowboys news: Dallas defense is looking for improvement

Before we get to the links themselves, let’s throw this out because it seems encouraging.

Now on to our regularly scheduled news roundup.

Cowboys’ Everson Griffen admits pass rush is struggling, will make specific adjustment to ‘generate pressure’ – Patrick Walker, CBSSports.com
Everson Griffen doesn’t think it’s just his stance that needs to be addressed, either.

“First and foremost, I feel like us as a group we have to get lined up correctly,” Griffen told media in a Zoom call on Wednesday. “We have to get lined up correctly. We have to play our gaps correctly and we have to not beat ourselves. We cannot beat ourselves.

“We have to get lined up correct, make the tackles and make the calls. We’ve got to get the ball back for offense. Our goal for this week is keep Russell in the pocket, don’t let him scramble and we have to do that by getting back there — generating pressure. These past two games, we haven’t been generating pressure that well to be honest with you guys and I feel like we’ve got to do a better job at generating pressure.

“If that’s putting big guys in the middle to get more push in the pocket, if that’s switching it up, doing whatever we have to do to generate that push in the middle, whatever we have to do.”
