Perhaps encouraged by what was probably the best performance by the offensive line all year against the Bears--which doesn’t really say much, but here we are--Jason Garrett told reporters this week that he has no plans to make any changes to the group, which has struggled so mightily in the first quarter of 2012.
There had been some whispers that Mackenzy Bernadeau might be replaced at right guard by veteran Derrick Dockery, but Garrett flatly denied that this was the case on Tuesday.
"We like the five guys who are playing up front as we talked yesterday," Garrett said, per ESPN Dallas. "I think collectively as a group they blocked that front fairly very well, particularly in the passing game the other night against Chicago, and Mackenzy is a part of that.
“Like everybody on the football team, it can get better. He watched the tape this morning and there's some areas where he can improve and he's got to keep working at it. It's nice to have a guy like Dockery sitting right there where we feel like he's a guy who has some experience and we're certainly confident in his ability to go out there and play.”
