Looking ahead to the 2010 Football season, it looks as if the Cowboys have everything lined up to make this season a great success. Although looking in years past, people have also said the same thing at the beginning of the season.
So what will it take to get this team to the Super Bowl which will be held in there own stadium?
On The Offensive Side Of The Ball
Austin Miles made a break through last year, and turned into a stud receiver after he had an amazing performance in OT against the Kansas City Chiefs.
Many say that game shouldnt of been so close, but if it had'nt would Austin of had a chance to show how clutch he is? Probably not early enough for it to make a difference.
With the Offense of the Dallas Cowboys in 2010, they should be almost unstoppable.
In the 1st round of the 2010 NFL Draft the Cowboys selected WR Dez Bryant from Oklahoma State. This selection enhanced this teams offensive ability tremendously.
The Offensive line is showing early trouble in training camp, which could be the downfall of this Dallas Cowboys team, if they dont get out of the slump and start playing well.
The Cowboys probably have the best depth at the Running Back position than any other team in the NFL. That doesnt mean they have the BEST running back, it simply means that if their number 1 gets hurt, their number 2 can come in and perform just like the number 1.
The most important position on the football field is the Quarterback. The Cowboys have one of the best in the league in Tony Romo. Romo passed for 4,483 yards, with a 63.1 Comp % in the 2009-2010 season. He only threw 9 interceptions the whole season, and ended up with a Q.B. Rating of 97.6.
The offensive side of the ball looks fairly promising for this coming season.
The Defensive Side Of The Ball
The Cowboys defense is usually one of the best in the league, and it wont be any different this year.
Dallas made a great move last year pulling Keith Brooking in as a MOLB. He had a great year, and performed much better than the Cowboys could of ever expected.
DeMarcus Ware is the leader of this Cowboys defense. Without him, alot of the Cowboys accomplishments would have never taken place. With 11 sacks causing 5 fumbles last season, Ware is looking to repeat his performance and transfer it to seasons to come and even improve.
Between Mike Jenkins and Terrence Newman, the Cowboys look decent at the Cornerback position for the upcoming season.
What It Will Take To Win In 2010-2011
The Cowboys have amazing talent, it just needs to all come together if they expect to get to the Superbowl.
The schedule for the Cowboys is not an easy one in any way.
They start out by facing off against Mike Shaanahan and the Washington Redskins, in Washington. Washington has always been a hard team for Dallas to overcome, now they have imported an amazing Q.B. and a great coach. They really need this win in Week 1.
In Week 2, the Cowboys will come home to face the Chicago Bears, who are a tough defensive team, but not so tough offensively. If the Cowboys can put up 13 points in this game they should be ok.
Week 3 will take the Cowboys to Houston to face the Texans. This should not be a hard game to win, and hopefully wont be. Coming out of the 1st 3 games if the Cowboys are 3 of 3, it will set them up well for what comes after the 4th week Bye.
The 5th week is against Tennessee, and it doesnt get to much easier after that.
This is a very tough schedule ahead of Dallas, but if they can put their talent that they have, on the field together, at the same time, then they should make a serious run at being the 1st team to ever play the Superbowl in their own stadium.
