As former Dallas Cowboys head coach Bill Parcells used to say, “You are what you are.” America’s Team was a 6-10 disaster in 2010, turned 8-8 mediocre team in 2011.
So what about 2012?
Let me put it this way—I’m tired of hearing writers, analysts and even fans proclaim each year that the Cowboys have few holes to fill, because they already have so much talent, and blah, blah, blah.
Sure they do.
The Cowboys have seven players which represent cornerstones of a future contender. They are:
QB —Tony Romo
As for the rest of the roster, excluding kickers, everybody is either a question mark or simply needs to go.
The 2012 NFL draft is months away, and only a portion of the draft order is in place. But, since Dallas and its fans can finally be honest about the problems, let’s look at potential solutions.
With one pick in each of the seven rounds, they each need to count big time.
And forget free agency, because the Cowboys are not going to have a very large war chest. Besides, ask another 8-8 team, the Philadelphia Eagles, how free agency worked out for them.
I am not anticipating other acquisitions in free agency or considering players that could return to school.
Here we go.
