Tanner, Jones, and Ryan, Oh My



The offense will shine, but the defense has work to do.

In the preseason game against the charges, the offensive line is opening holes and giving Romo all day.  Jones looks like a pro-bowler.  Baring major injuries, an offense that was already high-scoring under Garrett will be prolific this year.  Romo will lead the league in passing, and the Jones will lead the running back committee to 1,800 to 2,000 yards on the ground, plus do damage with screens and dump offs in space.

Yes, I'm worried that we're too thin after Bryant and Austin.  But really, this team should put up a lot of points.

Unfortunately, the offense may have to score at a crazy pace to win, because it's not yet clear that the defense will be stopping anyone.  I hope I'm wrong.  And I would like to see more of McCann and Church in the secondary.  I'm hoping it will just take time for everyone to learn the Ryan defense.  And I'm hoping the seriousness of Garret will get things turned around.

And I really hope that Jenkins and Anthony can return to the form that got them to the pro bowl in 2009, and that Lee and later Carter and maybe Victor Butler give the defense a lift with new blood.  Most of all, I'm hoping that all the blitz packages result in long yardage situations and turnovers and not a lot of long plays and chunks of yards on the ground.  But right now, the defense is mostly butter.
