The Cowboys Won't Have Worst Defense In The NFL
The Cowboys are facing an uphill battle on defense, but there are reasons to believe they will improve.
Suffice it to say that the national sports press is not impressed with the Cowboys 2014 offseason. The other day, we brought you the tidbit that Peter King predicts Dallas will have one of the worst defenses in the NFL in 2014. Okay, that's not too far of a leap considering how the 2013 defense performed. But there are plenty of reasons to think the Cowboys could improve even after losing some key personnel. Now, Nate Davis who covers the NFL for USA Today takes it one step further and basically says the Cowboys will be one of the worst teams in the NFL in 2014. His prediction:
Eagles 11-5 (4): Class of weak division. But can Nick Foles reproduce 2013 magic? DeSean Jackson's speed will be missed.
Redskins 7-9: If the line and RG3's knee hold up, this offense will be hard to slow, but defense may be year away.
Giants 6-10: Eli Manning's supporting cast is getting younger, even if he isn't. Team speed doesn't impress.
Cowboys 3-13: Tony Romo's back, defense are looking awfully frail. Dallas fans might end up pining for .500 teams.
The Dallas Morning News notes that Davis did predict the Seahawks over the Broncos in the Super Bowl before the start of last season, so he at least has that credibility going for him.
So BTB, is he off his rocker? Is there anyway the Cowboys collapse to 3-13? Hit up the comments and let us know.
