There is not much to report coming out of Valley Ranch these days which is actually probably a good thing. With little to no salary cap space at the moment it doesn’t look as if that scenario is going to change in the near future either.
Currently, about the only rumors to sink your teeth into are that of Tony Romo’s contract extension, the possibility of bringing in a veteran safety such as Michael Huff, and possibly the return of Laurent Robinson.
About the only other news to speak of right now is the common opinion that Dallas is quickly falling behind in the arms race with the rivals in the NFC East.
I think this might possibly be the best news we’ve heard in a long time. It’s no secret that the Cowboys haven’t been real contenders in over a decade. We as fans may have thought so in our heads but over fifteen years of drought should convince you otherwise. The talent is there but something huge is missing.
During the offseason every year the story is the same. Headlines are about the Cowboys and how it’s going to be their year. This year things look to be very different. In fact it looks like most people have jumped ship, suggesting the Cowboys may have just dug an even deeper hole financially.
I believe this might just be what these guys need to hear. Now they are truly being doubted. Why shouldn’t they be? The giants have proven themselves plenty, Chip Kelly is looking to bring some pride back to Philadelphia football, and let’s not forget that little preview RGIII showed us last year. It looks as if America’s Team is truly the underdog now, not just mentally, but on paper as well.
No longer can we rely on the fact that the team is loaded with talent, now they actually have to do something with that talent.
Obviously holes still need to be filled in the trenches and at safety but those needs can be addressed in the draft. As of right now I think it’s good seeing everyone in the organization sweat a little more everyday as it seems the rivals are pulling away.
Like I said, this is the best news to come out of Valley Ranch in a long time.
