  • Dallas Cowboys Truths & Predictions

    I thought it could be a good idea having a thread for our predictions or truths about the incoming season. Everyone can post their truths about our team or our division rivals, or simple prediction like "Witten will have more than 6 TD's".
    We can use this post to make bet too. I'll start with one:

    Terrell Owens 14 TD's. Over or Under? I take Over.

    Wow, I was just about to post a thread too!

    Here are some of my thoughts.

    10. Greg Ellis will be a non-factor for the Cowboys. I thought either he or Julius Jones would've been traded on draft day the last 2 years and I was wrong. However, I am right in the fact that they should have traded him while they had the chance. Now his value is 0 and he'll disappear into the sunset.

    9. Cowboys Defense will be Top 5 against the run and the pass defense will be no better than 16 (half the league). Many are expecting that with the addition of Phillips that our pass rush numbers will rise dramatically and thus our pass defense should improve. While it may, I believe our run Defense is what will be our biggest strength. With the type of defensive lineman we have, they are much better equip at stuffing the run than rushing the passer. Our linebackers and safeties are also better stuffing the run, than in coverage.

    8. Defensive Break Out Player of the Year will be Kevin Burnett. KB will be everything we hoped for him coming into the league as a 2nd round pick. He will finally have a full healthy season and could end up as one of our new young team leaders.

    7. Offensive Break Out Player of the Year will be Marion Barber III. Up to now, he's been labeled as our 3rd down/goal line back. This year you will see MB3 end up with the majority of snaps with more than a few starts.

    6. Terrell Owens will lead the league in TD receptions. Now this little truth is bit bold, but yes, TO will be the #1 fantasy receiver by year's end.

    5. Julius Jones will become the 3rd string back behind Marion Barber and Tyson Thompson. Julius will fail to meet his expectations and the blame he put on Parcells will now fall on his own shoulders.

    4. Biggest Turnaround Award goes to the Offensive Line. Last season, they were by far the weakest unit on the team. Causing huge worry and concern. Now their strength will lead us as every successful team needs.

    3. Jason Garrett is being groomed for the next Head Coach of the Dallas Cowboys. This is more like truth, than a prediction.

    2. The Cowboys will be NFC East Division Champions. The Division is ours for the taking. Only a major health catastrophe can derail this train. Cowboys are deep and talented enough to sustain some injury, but not a lot. The division is not as strong as in year's past and the Cowboys will show some revival.

    1. The Cowboys will not go to the Super Bowl. The Cowboys were good, but not great. Until they can create more turnovers on Defense and become that terrorizing play making unit, they will only be solid, not yet spectacular. Tony Romo must also learn to limit his interceptions and the running game needs to be a force to be reckoned with.

          "7. Offensive Break Out Player of the Year will be Marion Barber III. Up to now, he's been labeled as our 3rd down/goal line back. This year you will see MB3 end up with the majority of snaps with more than a few starts."

          Strongly agree with this one. I think Marion Barber will steal the starting job. I cant see Dallas wanting to re-sign JJ next season. However, if MBIII explodes he could be our featured back and the new recipient of a hefty contract.

            The homerism in me wants to say "over" but realistically, we have too many weapons on offense so I don't think he gets over 14. However, I think he will get over 1400 yards. I think Romo will target Witten more in the red-zone. I'll say Witten scores over 7 TDs.

              i think barber will overtake the job as well, but i hope phillips sees it as well..., i think thompson is better suited spelling barber then how we have it now, but we shall see, i just hope barber gets the touches and carries he deserves


              and yes i firmly believe garrett will be our soon to be head coach, he's getting the experience he needs, and i really love what he does with our O...I just hope when it happens we pick up a solid D coordinator as well...

              O and i really agree on burnett, he's a stud and ready to show it

              also think that crayton will have a better yr, and barber with more yds and around the same td's

                The only way Barber over takes the starting job is if we're are losing. I predict Julius will have a career year and start all 16 games. There is zero chance that Julius falls to third on the depth chart.

                  That is absolutely insane. Carpenter has looked lost this preseason and slow. He has shown no glimpses of being a pro bowl player, not to mention he is a back up that will not overtake any of our starters. When playing end he is getting pushed around and when playing LB he is always late to the play. I dont see how he has shown you that he can be a pro bowler...and this year of all years.

                    I'm expecting big years from two players vastly underrated on these boards.

                    1. Julius Jones...he's hitting holes harder and running through tackles opposed to going down upon contact. Preseason numbers do not tell the story...he's in for a good year.

                    2. Bradie James...he's lighter and much faster. Bradie has been making plays all over the field this preseason. He's constantly been in the backfield and when rushing the passer he has been highy efficient. He has been our best player this preseason and will lead our team in tackles and get a career high in sacks. He only needs three but, the way he has brought pressure, I could see him w/ 5 sacks this season.

                    Thanks BoneKrusher^

                      Lets do some more...

                      Tony Romo will be a probowler. There arent many Qb's in this league that study as much as Romo. He has all the weapons in the world and is already near the top of the league in accuracy. Our line should be a strength this year...hell, he was getting tons of time to throw even w/ out our starters in. He's gonna have all day, solid Rb play, and Jason Garrett calling the plays. Mark it down, Tony Romo will be headed to the Pro Bowl.

                      Marcus Spears will finally break out. He was a monster in TC and he's motivated. He's had a rough preseason but, I'm going to give him the benefit of the doubt here. Spears breaks out w/ atleast 6 sacks.

                      Mat Mcbriar will go to his second consecutive pro bowl. No explaination necessary, just watch him kick.

                        at first i thought you were being fecetious...but this is pretty bold, but I dont know why you would give him more credit for TC then you would pre season going against actual opponents

                          I have faith in Spears. He's learning a new system...None of the DE's are really doing anything. I'm gonna keep listening to him...if he doesnt perform...then well...it is what it is...but, I'm gonna give him that benefit. I'm def. being serious.

                            Here we go.

                            Julius Jones will not be third string. Period. I am not a fan of his, but he is better than some give him credit for.


                            I am a Burnett fan. He has amazing talent. However, I think there is too much competition for him. No pro bowl. Not even close.


                            Ellis is done. I can not agree with D Unit more on this. Ellis was good for a long time, but it is over for him. I am not counting on him at all. If he gives anything, look at it as gravy. I hate to say it, but farewell...


                            Roy will shut a lot of you up. He may give up a touchdown or two, but he is still one of our finest.

                            Anthony Henry will have a good year.

                            Marcus Spears will continue to suck.

                            Brady James is either traded or dropped on the depth chart. A bold prediction, but figured I had to stick my sack out on at least one of these.
