NFL Season Preview: #14 Dallas Cowboys

with 4 comments


Overview: Last season, everyone was picking the Cowboys as Super Bowl favorites. Of course there was drama surrounding Dallas, whether it be rumors about coach Wade Phillips’ job or WR Terrell Owens accusing QB Tony Romo and TE Jason Witten of having secret meetings. These distractions proved too much for the Cowboys, who got shut out of the playoffs in the last week of the season, losing to the Eagles 44-6.

Offseason Moves: Dallas tried getting rid of its distractions, releasing WRs Terrell Owens and Terry Glenn, while also letting LBs Greg Ellis and Zach Thomas go. The Cowboys also traded away valuable pieces of their secondary, CB Anthony Henry, to the Lions and S Roy Williams, to the Bengals.  Another reasonable subtraction from Dallas was Jessica Simpson, as her and boyfriend QB Tony Romo ended their relationship. The adding to the roster started through the draft, where the Cowboys selected Western Illinois LB Jason Williams in the third round. Dallas also traded for backup QB Jon Kitna, and signed DE Igor Olshansky, and LB Keith Brooking.

Upcoming Season: With WR Terrell Owens in Buffalo, the Cowboys believe that WR Roy Williams and QB Tony Romo can develop a chemistry and open up the passing game. The offensive line is still a solid group, and will open up holes for the Cowboys’ three RBs Marion Barber, Felix Jones, and Tashard Choice. On defense, the Cowboys added different pieces, but mostly subtracted older players in hopes that young guys will step up their games.

Roy WilliamsPlayer to watch: WR Roy Williams was a great receiver in Detroit. No one knows what happened to Williams when he came to Dallas, but the receiver seemed to drop more balls than he caught. If Romo is finally going to get Dallas over the hump, a lot will depend on the production of Williams.

Prediction: 8-8, 3rd in NFC East

I am a firm believer that QB Tony Romo will never win the big game, and never bring the Cowboys anywhere. After this season, coach Wade Phillips, and quite possibly Romo, could be looking for jobs elsewhere. Not to mention that their defense will not be as strong as anyone else’s in the division.
