Jaime Aron on the Cowboys

Jaime Aron has a new article on the Cowboys going to camp. Aron is one my favorite Cowboys beat reporters. It will be good to see more of his writing on the Boys this season.

Aron pulls out a quote from Parcells, who usually tries to keep it low-key, but even he is excited about this edition of the Cowboys.

"There's still a couple of things that concern me a great deal, but personnel-wise, I know we're getting closer to where we're going to be able to be competitive," Parcells said earlier this summer. "We are making a lot of improvement on defense, physically. I think we have more firepower on offense."

It all looks pretty good, except for the uncertainty over the offensive line.
Protecting Bledsoe's blind side once again will be Flozell Adams, who missed most of last season with a knee injury. The Cowboys struggled once the now-departed Torrin Tucker took over.

Free agent signee Kyle Kosier is the front-runner to replace Allen at left guard, but Kosier didn't even start every game for lowly Detroit last season. On the right side, guard Marco Rivera is vowing to make up for a disappointing debut season in Dallas, and there could be a battle at tackle between newcomer Jason Fabini and incumbent Rob Petitti.

Petitti has been repeatedly praised for his offseason work, especially in the weight room. After his trial-by-fire rookie season, he'll be pushed by Fabini, part of the growing collection of Parcells alumni.

The line's success might be as important as ever because it could ultimately determine whether Owens causes more trouble for the Cowboys or their opponents.

If they provide Bledsoe with enough time, he showed last season that he can still make any throw. And Owens would get plenty of them, which would make him happy.

There you have it, keep Bledsoe upright, keep Owens happy and keep on winning games.
