Dallas Cowboys Storylines You’re Not Expecting For 2012

How many would have guessed that Jason Garrett would step in front of Wade Phillips during the 2010 season? Storylines are unpredictable.

If I were to tell you at the beginning of the 2011 season that Tony Romo would throw for over 4,000 yards, over 30 touchdowns and only 10 interceptions, would you believe me? If I told you that DeMarcus Ware would fall just a half sack short of 20 in addition to Romo's great campaign, would you believe the team would end up at 8-8?

What about DeMarco Murray breaking the Cowboys single-game rushing record? Any of you have that one pegged before the St. Louis game was unfolding?

The reality is, storylines happen week in, week out and throughout the season; and the majority of them are as unexpected as spring weather.

For the last season and a half, I've run an on-again off-again series called Storylines, where I set up a poll of some seemingly far-fetched game themes for all to vote on. Occasionally (ok, rarely) the poll will include some strange happening from the game that might not have been the prevailing storyline; but did contribute to the outcome of the game.

In that vein, let's take some guesses at what unexpected storylines will emerge for the 2012 Dallas Cowboys regular season. I have to reiterate, as I've actually had people reply in the comments "those won't happen!"... that's kind of the point. These are out-of-the-box ideas that most wouldn't place any money on; but could occur.

If the answers in the poll don't suit you, feel free to offer your storylines in the comments.
