Is the Cowboys' great offensive line due for a step back?

Matt Mosley, contributor to SportsDayDFW.com and columnist for Texas Monthly, answered your questions in a recent live chat. Here are some highlights:

Hate to think this way, but given the nature of the league and general luck most teams, isn't the Cowboys' O-line due for a step back sooner than later? Team has been pretty fortunate to keep that group together AND healthy.

Mosley: I hate for you to think like that, too. Tyron Smith has been a bit banged up at times. But there have been O-lines over the years that stay together and stay healthy for long periods of time.
