Scouts, Inc. over at ESPN is looking for the #2 team in the NFC behind the Bears. Here's their take on Dallas as a possible candidate for #2.
Con: The Cowboys are the most penalized team in the league with all types of needless infractions costing them field position, big plays and at least one game. The inconsistent play of Owens and his inability to catch the ball at critical times in games cost this team the Redskins game. Nothing can deflate a team quicker than dropped touchdown passes. The safety play for the Cowboys needs to improve; both positions have been burned for easy touchdowns. Roy Williams has struggled in coverage and will continue to get picked on until he makes more plays in the back end.
Isn't it funny how everyone writing a Cowboys game story meticulously details each of T.O.'s drops (two vs. Cards). It's like A Tale of Two Cities and Madame DeFarge sitting there knitting the names of the doomed into her embroidery.
Uh...yeah. That's exactly what I was thinking, not. WTF? Dr. Z is pulling out A Tale of Two Cities references? Methinks he's trying to show his literary side. If you're going for literary references, I would suggest Dr. Jekyl and Mr. Hyde for the Cowboys.
