The Valley Ranch Review: Bring on the Bucs! Looking Forward to the 2009 Cowboys

The teams of the NFC South, the AFC West, along with the Seahawks and Saints - plus the Beasts in the East - will all see the blue star on their season schedules. The early predictors say the Cowboys schedule looks easy in September, but tough come December. Brrr. We all know how cold the Cowboys can be in December.

Calvin Watkins predicts 8-8, Todd Archer says 9-7 and Tim Cowlishaw is the optimist of the bunch over at the DMN with a 10-6 guess.

The Sporting News has a much more optimistic view of the Cowboys, predicting the team will end up as one of the NFL's final four teams.

As always, a plethora of articles popped-up immediately after the schedule release chronicling the Cowboys dominance of the TV market.

Former Cowboys wide receiver, Tony Hill, will be throwing a charity basketball event for his alma mater, Cal Poly.

Among those playing will be Hill, as well as Dallas Cowboys Roy Williams (the receiver), Terence Newman, Martellus Bennett, and Sam Hurd, all of whom Hill is bringing to Long Beach from Dallas. They'll be squaring off against the Snoop Dogg All-Stars, a team that features Snoop, as well as Warren G, David Banner, Ricky Davis, and Mike Epps. Hill says this week they'll have some more names to announce as the schedule and lineup are finalized.

Oklahoma State's Brandon Pettigrew looks up to some NFL tough guys at the tight end position.

It's inspiring to see top guys such as the Cowboys' Jason Witten and the Chargers' Antonio Gates play through everything. Even though they may have all these injuries, you respect them when they suck it up and keep playing.

I like how Witten is versatile and does a lot of things well. That's the kind of role I would love -- tough enough to block, but also be able to stretch the field as a receiver.

The annual Dallas Day went down at The Ranch on Monday.

Iowa cornerback Bradley Fletcher is visiting the Cowboys.
