Top 3 Offensive Reasons the Dallas Cowboys will Rock the Playoffs


I’m just going to go ahead and say it… I think the Cowboys have a fine chance to rock the playoffs this year.

Bold statement? Yes, of course (would you expect anything less from me?)

Understatement? Never. Nope. Not even close. I’ve come up with my top three offensive reasons why I think we can rock the playoffs…

1) Bill Callahan will be calling the plays. Let me start by saying I am not a fan of how the news of this change broke last week. I, like most of you think Jerry handled this wrong… again (but that’s another article.) I am a fan of Jason Garrett. I like the way he handles his team and I like how he has handled his business in the past. That being said, I think it is the duty of the head coach to be just that. Garrett needs to be focused on the team as a whole and by leaving the play-calling to our Offensive Coordinator, Bill Callahan it will allow that to happen. By focusing Callahan’s efforts and broadening Garrett’s, it should allow for a substantial offensive shift.

2) Dez Bryant is dialed in. Personally, I enjoy watching Dez Bryant play. He is one of my favorite WR’s of the minute. After seeing him show up big in the latter part of last season I am willing to bet he is going to be ready for this season. His news headlines (or lack of) this offseason have shown that he is growing as an athlete both on and off the field. At just 24 he has so much football ahead of him. NFL.com has him ranked at 35th in their annual top-100. With his talent, work ethic and drive there is no telling how far he will go.

3) Tyron Smith’s time to step-up has come. Tyrone Smith is, in my opinion, one of the best pieces of the lackluster offensive line puzzle. With 28 sacks on Romo, only 3 of them came from Smith at left tackle. Hopefully the family issues this poor guy had to deal with this offseason are behind him and he can put all of his focus on football. If he can move into the role of a leader on the line this season I believe a repeat of last season’s terrible OL performance as a whole can be avoided.

Callahan, Bryant and Smith. My top 3. Let’s see how this pans out! As always, Tweet me a Holla! Share your thoughts, I love hearing from you!

Cheers, Dez

    1.) What has Callahan ever done in his past to earn such praise?
    2.) Dez Bryant is a ‘mental midget’ who can ‘go off the tracks’ at any time.
    3.) Tyron Smith is a 1st round pick…..and should play like one.

    You are the mental midget

    So, the Cowboys will ROCK THE PLAYOFFS? Please send me some of what you are smoking. Lets look at this. 1) Bill Callahan calling plays – wow who cares. His play calling is only as good as the talent and that is something this team does not have. 2) Dez Bryant I may give this too you but, one time can this guys make a catch and not get in someones face or not bump into someone. Show some class like you expect to catch it and then back to the huddle. 3)Tyron Smith, has he gotten so big he can block all the defenders? They need more help on the line and you notice Jones had not really addressed anything so this will make no difference.
