Newman Says Cowboys Defense Too Simple

Tim MacMahon, of The Dallas Morning News, reports Dallas Cowboys CB Terence Newman said during a Dallas television interview that he believes the team’s defense tends to be too vanilla. “We’re pretty simple on our defense, I think. We line up and teams are calling out what we’re doing,” Newman said. “In the middle of games, they’re calling out, ‘OK, he’s coming, he’s coming,’ and they’re right. I would like to see us get a little more moving parts, like Pittsburgh and Baltimore; those guys have fun. A 3-4 is supposed to be designed where you don’t know who’s coming. You don’t know what coverage we’re gonna be in. I think at times we got a little plain and teams capitalized on that.”
