Howdy Cowboys Fans!
The time is almost here, we have all been waiting for football season since “Dez Caught It” in January and Cowboys Nation was robbed of one of the greatest catches of all time.
Not that I’m bitter or anything…
Anyways, we will have to sit through some games to get to Sunday night but at least we are finally back in action!
This coaching staff and front office have had an incredible off season and the team appears to be healthy besides Orlando Scandrick , and everyone is set to play that is eligible. This is a key feature as you will often see teams heading into the first game with a handful of random injuries but this staff has had one thing on their mind and that was health. We want our team healthy for Week 1.
It appears the Giants firework master Jason Pierre-Paul will likely miss the opener after blowing off his fingers on July 4th which does nothing but give an edge to the Dallas Cowboys, they also picked up Jasper Brinkley who was part of the Cowboys off season.. no concern there either.
With all this being said I believe the stage is set for the Cowboys to pick up right where they left off last year which is a strong attack on the offensive side of the ball. We will get a true look at how Randle and McFadden will attack with the running game and possibly create a dynamic duo for running back by committee.
We also gained some strong players on the defensive side of the ball with some fantastic depth at our defensive line which will allow the rotation of players through the game to keep everyone fresh. Once we get Greg Hardy and a healthy ( hopefully ) McCalin back week 4 it will only help. But as of now we seem to have Hitchens back alongside a healthy Sean Lee and I expect big things from Brandon Carr and hope to see Claiborne step up as well.
This game of course will not be easy, but I see the Cowboys winning the game in a hard fought battle.
The first half of this season is going to be brutal and we need every “W” we can get, but we have solid depth and a fantastic coaching staff.
Don’t forget Cowboys Nation, take this season ONE game at a time and don’t get ahead of your self.
This first game will tell us a lot about how this team will play this year and I have a good feeling it’s going to be quite the journey so strap in and get ready.
Take it, leave it, or throw it back at me…
