It would not have been surprising, in the slightest, to see the Cowboys make a move at the cornerback position. In fact, some people thought the Cowboys might get crazy and trade multiple first-round picks for Pat Surtain II of the Denver Broncos. Or, at least, that they should have done that.

We didn't see the Cowboys make a single move at the cornerback position, and so the much-maligned Jourdan Lewis remains in place as the team's nickel cornerback. Da'Ron Bland has really emerged this year with four interceptions already, three of them going for touchdowns. Considering the Cowboys are playing without Trevon Diggs, the emergence of Bland has been anything but bland.

But Lewis has been a weak link on the defense, and the Cowboys didn't make any other additions at corner. But could they bench him if his poor play continues?
