Costa: Facing Jets Defense "Was Good For Us"



    Echoing the sentiments of Tyron Smith, center Phil Costa believes the Cowboys young offensive line performed okay against the New York Jets on Sunday night, but sees ample room for improvement. Costa was on 105.3 FM The Fan’s “New School with Sean and RJ” this week, where he was asked what he saw in the unit’s performance on film.

    "There's things we need to improve on,” Costa said, via the Dallas Morning News. “Short-yardage gains when the game was tied. That's the O-line, you've got to be able to get a yard. And some other little things. There's always some things you can improve on, always a few plays you want back."

    Costa made his second career start on Sunday. Smith was making his first career start, as was left guard Bill Nagy. With such a young line, Costa believes that the baptism by fire that was the Jets’ defense will ultimately be a positive for the unit.

    "They give a lot of different looks. It was good for us, especially in the first game,” Costa said. “We got to see a lot of different things, how we handled it. Especially on third down, they gave a lot of different looks. So it was good to get that experience."
