Are New Orleans Saints The Splitting Image Of What Dallas Cowboys Should Be?

When you look at career stats and player development, there are some very tight parallels with the New Orleans Saints and the Dallas Cowboys; however, the Saints are having great success and the Cowboys are struggling.

Drew Brees and Tony Romo have very similar statistics in passing, touchdowns, and even success.

You’ve got a young, no-name wide receiver Marcus Colston who comes on the scene and explodes. Although Colston did it pretty quickly, the Cowboys are also seeing a no-name kind of guy reach higher levels, and that’s with Miles Austin.

The Saints have a utility runner named Reggie Bush.

The Cowboys have a guy named Felix Jones.

In a way, the Saints do seem like a splitting image of the Cowboys.

Saints are 13-0.

Cowboys are 8-5.

What’s the difference?

Wade Phillips.

Sean Payton.

Honestly, if I were a betting man, I would put my money on the Cowboys. I would not be surprised to see the Cowboys win tomorrow night. They are playing themselves, and they can beat themselves.

We’ve seen was 13-0 records mean in the NFL. We’ve seen what 13-3 means, too. This is not something the Cowboys have not dealt with before.

If the Cowboys do make the playoffs, we know that it’s a whole new season, and an entirely different ball game.

But they have to beat the Saints.
