I'm going to say the same things I said last year.
--Receiving corps needs to step it up. The only difference here between this year and last, is that this year my comments apply to #11 as well. Crayton had an ok year last year, but if he wants to stay here, he needs to establish himself as a solid #2. Right now, he's a mediocre #3 on virtually any team other than the Raiders.
-- Injuries are key, as displayed by my beloved Sooners. Here's to hoping everyone can stay healthy, because this team just doesn't have the depth to handle injuries. They've got a bunch of overpaid, underachieving players. Earn your salary, or get the fuck out of town.
-- For the love of God, Jason Garrett, 3rd and 1 and 3rd and 2 a RUNNING downs. You've got one of the most punishing backs in the league. RUN IT DOWN THEIR GODDAMNED THROATS. The next time I see a call for a downfield pass on 3rd and short, I'm calling for your fucking head on a platter, you dumbass. I screamed this all season, but nobody else (talking heads included) caught on until the season was over.
-- 10-6 is my feel good number for this season. I'd rate them higher, after seeing the rest of the conference play this pre-season, because I don't think it's going to be as tight as everyone has been saying it will be. Sure, it looks tough by looking at everyone's upgrades/losses in the offseason. But it sure didn't translate to good play during the preseason. But, I still stick with 10-6. My reasoning, is that there is a lot of 'new' on this team. Not necessarily gree, but new. They're having to learn to play as a team again. Not an easy feat for anyone.
--I still haven't seen a full list of cuts they made over the weekend. That fucking retard Brown better not be on there, though. Assholes.
--Also still looking to see what spots they fill. Most reports I read said the Cowboys cut to 52, to pick up a CB. However, a friend is insisten that they cut to 48, but can't provide any proof of this.
