Jerry Jones loves him some Felix Jones, and so do the rest of the Dallas Cowboys. Although he has incredible break-away speed, Jones is not afraid to run between the tackles and does a good job of it.
While Felix Jones has done well as a professional football player already, he has yet to emerge as a premier back. That will change this season. The Cowboys are no longer unmotivated and lost under Wade Phillips. Felix no longer has to split time with Marion Barber seeing as how he is with the Chicago Bears now. Tashard Choice has been injured and disappointing in training camp. This leads to Felix Jones being the main, feature back.
If Jones can stay healthy, and that is the key, he can have a huge year for Dallas. Head coach Jason Garrett has installed a lot of screen plays for Jones and the offense will run through him more than it ever has.
With Miles Austin, Dez Bryant and Jason Witten, there will be plenty of holes for Felix Jones to run through. Again, the most important factor to Felix Jones finally emerging as a premier back is him staying healthy. If Jones can stay healthy, he is primed for greatness.
In 2011, Felix Jones could have the biggest breakout season than anyone in the NFL.
