Considering this year to be the best off-season in a long time it’s time to take a look and see what the Dallas Cowboys need to continue the movement from an average team to a dominate contender to be Super Bowl Champions for the sixth time.
Over the last couple of seasons there has been turmoil in a lot of the positions with the exception of quarterback, except when Tony Romo has been injured. Long gone now are the older, slower offensive linemen and welcoming into the fold are younger, quicker lineman who won’t be getting beat and therefore, not landing Romo on his back with a sack. These youngsters have been slowly added to the line to replace the older ones.
Looking over to the defense, the same situation, older veterans are being replaced with younger and quicker veterans who like on offense, won’t be getting beat or playing 10-yards off the line in order not to be beat. These younger defensive players have been rotated in to replace the older veterans.
What Dallas needs to do is continue to build the team from a younger, quicker foundation. It is a two-fold approach. You add these younger guys in and start them out disciplined then you eliminate the penalties that have plagued Dallas for a very long time and you get guys who continue to play together.
The last few years, Dallas has been a revolving door for talent. First there was the crash and burn lets “buy a super bowl team” approach and when that backfired and the team showed they were less than average, Wade Phillips received the backlash and was thus let go.
In order forDallas to make a legitimate Super Bowl Run, they have to maintain talent and coaching staff. Even if Jason Garrett has another less than stellar year by fans perspectives or Tony Romo improves but the rest of the team doesn’t step up, the Cowboys needs to tweak it, not continue the revolving door approach.
Consistency wins Super Bowls; that and defenses!
