As is always the case, the preseason coupled with the offseason has brought about much excitement for us Dallas Cowboys fans. Whether or not we have been duped once again, I think we can all let out a collective hallelujah because the season is finally here. And what better way to kick it off than doing it against the hated New York Giants.
Although the season is about to make its debut, many questions still remain to be answered.
First, what is the front office going to do about the defensive line? Why all the trades? Is there a big move being conjured up in Big D? Who knows, but if the latest news hasn’t brought you anything else, then at least let the announcement of the Brian Waters signing let you sleep a little sounder at night.
Calm down. I know what most of you are thinking. Perhaps you’re thinking he’s too old, or that it’s going to take him forever to get in game shape or to make a contribution, but seriously…its Brian Waters.
Let’s get real here, I think this signing is going to pay off in big ways, and quickly. First of all this is an eleven time pro bowler who knows what it takes to play at a high level and knows the mentality that is necessary to compete. Not to mention, why would a guy who more than likely has already solidified an eventual spot in the Hall of Fame run the risk of ending on a bad note. Especially after he already left on a good one in New England.
Trust me folks, it may take a week or so before he’s at full speed, but he will get there and he will do it fast. Waters is a professional in every facet of the word, he knows what it takes to be successful in this league and that’s something many players on this team lack.
Offensive line was a glaring need for this team, but now with the additions of Frederick and Waters coupled with the talent of the stalwart Tyron Smith look for it to lean closer to a strength now. That’s a bold declaration I know, but the great Meatloaf once said that two out of three ain’t bad. I think even he would agree that three out of five ain’t that bad either.
