The Cowboys defense is semi-legit from what I can tell. I feel comfortable saying that the defensive backs are the strength of our defense (including LBers). However, our D-line is mediocre at best. There are flashes of great d line play, but it's rather inconsistent and they get pushed around a lot. Only Jason Hatcher should be considered 'good' on the D line right now.
IMO, The defense is about a draft/FA period away from being a top defense in the league.
uh, no they're not over the cap
Football has been very, very good to us.
In the midst of this losing season, we can console ourselves with this fact-
# of Super Bowl victories since 1985:
1-Chicago, St. Louis, Tampa Bay, Indianapolis, New Orleans, Seattle
2-Washington, Green Bay, Denver, Pittsburgh, Baltimore
3-San Francisco, Dallas, New England
4-New York Giants!!!!!

Nope. Your team is the only team that ever had cap issues in the NFCE this year, which is ironic since your team benefitted three fold from the cap sanctions imposed on both the Cowboys and Skins.
The Cowboys are about 7 million under the cap as of now, even after taking the hit from the sanctions if I'm not mistaken.
But to answer your question, there are players that most likely won't be resigned next year that will also free up more cap space (Coleman, Jenkins, and maybe even Spencer) and dead money from this year that won't be there next year.
