2013 Dallas Cowboys Preview


It's a new year with new hope but Dallas is at a crossroads. It's been 18 years since the last Super Bowl win. What can Dallas do to get on top?

  • Romo is 32 years old. I saw an improvement in play overall, but the turnovers were a killer, the home game against the Bears was awful, but for all the grief he gets he is still a top 10 QB.
  • Dallas at RB is good. But Demarco Murray has shown bits of injury-proneness. Can he rush for 1,300 yards and stay on the field for 16 weeks?
  • WR Dez Bryant has turned into a superstar and a matchup nightmare. Miles Austin is a strong number 2 but there are injury corners with the hammys. Can you develop a number 3 WR?
  • At TE, Witten is underrated by the national media and look for Escobar to start now that Vickers is gone.
  • OL, to put it kindly, is average. LT Tyron Smith is very solid but LG-RT IS average. If Romo had a better o-line he would turn the ball over less.
  • Dline will be underrated but the thin depth hurts.
  • LB will be faster will Lee and Carter both young and ascending.

Dallas' main weakness is getting burned on big plays in the secondary. My worry about Dallas is not 1-25, it's 26-53: lack of depth across the board.

In closing, Dallas will be in a fight with NYG And Washington for the division. You need to get hot in December, not cold. About 10 wins is the best you can hope for.

I think Garrett is safe this year but barring no big wins, he'll be gone by 2015.
