Likely no one in the Cowboys locker room was happier to see his team win than Randy Gregory. The Cowboys defensive end went from goat to a mere footnote after Dallas pulled out a 13-10 victory.Gregory had three penalties for 34 yards in the second half. A roughing the punter penalty came on fourth down Daryl Johnston Color Rush Jersey , giving the Saints a first down, and an offsides on third down negated a sack-fumble the Cowboys recovered.Cowboys defensive coordinator Rod Marinelli had a heart-to-heart to Gregory in the locker room afterward, saying he’s “100 percent there for [Gregory].”“I just talked to him about it,” Marinelli said. “He had a little adversity. I don’t want to be any more than that. Now, we let it go; we learn; and we move forward. That’s important. We all make mistakes. He’s got to now put it behind him and go. That’s what I want him to do.”Gregory, who had one tackle, did not talk to the media afterward.On the Saints’ sixth play in the second half, Gregory got a 15-yard facemask penalty that moved the Saints to the Dallas 22. It led to a field goal.The Saints’ next possession would have ended at the Dallas 48 with a punt. But leery of a fake punt on fourth-and-three, the Cowboys kept their defense on the field, and Gregory took out punter Thomas Morstead. The 15-yard penalty gave the Saints’ new life https://www.dallascowboysfanshop.com/Leighton-Vander-Esch-Jersey , and three plays later, New Orleans scored a touchdown.With the Cowboys clinging to a 13-10 lead with 12:13 remaining, DeMarcus Lawrence sacked Drew Brees and forced a fumble that Tyrone Crawford recovered. It was negated by Gregory being penalized for lining up in the neutral zone, a penalty owner Jerry Jones didn’t agree with and called “punitive.” “Two bad plays,” Cowboys coach Jason Garrett said. “Obviously running into the kicker was huge and gave them another bite of the apple, another possession, after we鈥檇 made a stop. And then, we make a huge play — a sack fumble — and I guess they said he lined up offsides, so obviously that took that huge play away. Those are significant plays. Those are two turnovers if you think about it. But Randy is going about it the right way. He鈥檚 working hard. He鈥檒l learn from those, and he鈥檒l get better going forward.” The big defensive tackle looks to make are mark in Big D." />Skip to main contentclockmenumore-arrownoyesHorizontal - WhiteBlogging The BoysBlogging The Boys https://www.dallascowboysfanshop.com/Connor-Williams-Jersey , a Dallas Cowboys fan communityLog In or Sign UpLog InSign UpFanpostsFanshotsSectionsLibraryCowboysOddsShopAboutMastheadCommunity GuidelinesStubHubMoreAll 322 blogs on Horizontal - WhiteFanposts Fanshots Sections Dallas Cowboys NewsFiled under:Dallas Cowboys GeneralChristian Covington called “under-the-radar move to love” for the Cowboys this offseasonNew,69commentsThe big defensive tackle looks to make are mark in Big D.CDTShareTweetShareShareChristian Covington called “under-the-radar move to love” for the Cowboys this offseasonJohn Glaser-USA TODAY SportsWhen talking about the Cowboys defensive tackle position this offseason, most of the conversation is around Trysten Hill. The Cowboys chose Hill with their first pick of the 2019 draft (58th overall) to supplement the middle of the defensive line. Hill’s tabbed to play the 3-tech spot, and will be asked to use his athleticism and quick-twitch get-off to create havoc in the opposing backfield. That’s something the Cowboys need, especially now that David Irving will no longer be with the team.But there’s another aspect to the middle of the defensive line, and that’s clogging the middle and stuffing the run. The Cowboys got worked toward the end of the season in that department, here’s how John Owning explained it:Anybody who watched the playoff loss to Los Angeles knows the torture of the Rams running backs ripping off huge chunks of yards right through the middle of the Cowboys defense. It was maddening and the Cowboys couldn’t do anything about it.This offseason, they made a move to help with the problem. In fact, SB Nation calls it “the under-the-radar move to love” for the Cowboys this offseason. That was the signing of Christian Covington.Covington was a part-time player for Houston, but he is particularly effective in handling the run. We go back to our friend John Owning again who did a full breakdown of Covington when the Cowboys signed him. Check out Covington’s technique against the run.He does an excellent job of engaging the blocker and then mirroring him down the line while still controlling him with his hands. He drives his man slowly back until he is finally right in front of the ball-carrier. Covington prevents any holes from opening up on the play side and helps in preventing a cutback lane. Obviously J.J. Watt causes the real disruption on this play https://www.dallascowboysfanshop.com/Darren-Woodson-Jersey , acting almost as a 3-tech in this alignment, but Covington does the unsung work of containing his blocker and driving him back into the play side. This is the dirty work that needs to be done when handling the run. Covington also had his best year as a pass rusher in 2018, racking up 3.5 sacks in a part-time role. That’s not going to be his calling card, but the more he can show in that area the better his chances are to live up to the “underrated” tag that has been given to his acquisition. The Cowboys have a lot of competition going on at the defensive tackle spot. At the 1-tech position, Antwaun Woods returns, as does Daniel Ross. And with a full contingent at the 3-tech position, there will be a fierce battle down the roster for a spot on the 53-man roster. We are reminded by K.D. that comp picks could play a role if all things are equal at the bottom of the roster.The Cowboys will gladly “lose” that comp pick if Covington can be a force in the middle, especially if he can help shut down the opposition’s run game. We’ll see if we love this under-the-radar move at the end of the season.
