NFL Moments – Cowboys OLine 8.99 Seconds

Cowboys Offensive Line

Welcome to NFL Moments. Here we take a look back at the many moments that make professional football the glorious sport it is today.

In the ’90’s the Dallas Cowboys had swag. The “Triplets” were the media darlings but it was the offensive line that gave opposing teams nightmares in the week before a game. It rained Lombardi Trophies, Jimmy Jonson left, the line deteriorated and then mediocrity set in. After 20 long years of sub-par team results, in 2011, a light came on for the Cowboys front office and they went about rebuilding the team starting with the offensive line by drafting LT Tyron Smith. Travis Frederick, Zack Martin, and Ronald Leary quickly followed and a few short years later it all came together for the unit on one play that set the standard for the current Cowboys offensive line.

When you give any NFL QB 8.99 seconds to throw the ball they are going to find an open receiver somewhere. Tony Romo found Dez Bryant for six. Game over.
