Dallas Cowboys: 2014 season will be epic

If you are a Dallas Cowboys fan, as I am, this could be really, really ugly. Unless you are the most delusional football fan, it’s hard to see how the Dallas Cowboys are going to put together a season worth watching. Last year, there were two pivotal football games that really showed Cowboy fans exactly how the season was going to go. First, back in week five, the Dallas Cowboys played the Denver Broncos. Although Tony Romo in the Dallas offense really did put up a valiant effort, this game should be etched in the memory banks of all Dallas Cowboys fans for its defensive performance. Yes, Peyton Manning and the offense put up jaw-dropping numbers (33/42 four 414 passing yards, four touchdowns and one interception). If you go back and look at our defensive performance, the Dallas Cowboys had no sacks. Not one. Sure, Peyton Manning is one of the best in the business. The Dallas Cowboys defense looked amazingly bad. With no pressure, the whole secondary was exposed. Our linebackers, safeties and cornerbacks simply couldn’t cover any of the Bronco receivers. We saw the same type of performance against the New Orleans Saints. Drew Brees looked like he was playing a videogame. There was no pass rush. Drew Brees had his choice of receivers on almost every play. The New Orleans defense shut down the Dallas Cowboys offense. The New Orleans Saints had 40 first downs and over 625 yards in total offense. No team in NFL history had ever given up 40 first downs. (more…)
