With the Dallas Cowboys offseason in full swing, some Cowboys sites will be going into hibernation until the start of training camp in late July. But not The Landry Hat! For us, it’s easy to discuss, debate, and just plain old talk about our favorite team all year long because we love doing it. And it’s in that spirit that I believe it’s time for us fans to make some bold predictions about the upcoming 2014 regular season. Therefore, The Landry Hat is starting a new daily series called Over/Under.
It’s fairly simple. We’ll present you a daily topic. And you’ll tell us if you think that particular Cowboys player will get over or under that stat for the entire regular season and why.
Here’s today’s Over/Under question:
Will Morris Claiborne grab four interceptions in 2014?
Here’s what you need to know: Since being drafted sixth overall in the 2012 NFL Draft, Claiborne has been a fairly large disappointment in Dallas. Recording a total of 81 tackles, 14 pass defended and two interceptions in that time, many have already starting calling the former LSU star a “bust”. Still, the third-year corner is young (24) and has time to shift the downward trajectory of his career. The questions is, will he?
Injuries have certainly played a role in Claiborne’s poor performance. They have caused him to miss seven games in his first two seasons in Dallas. Last year, Claiborne lost his starting role to veteran corner Orlando Scandrick early. Many believe that Scandrick will remain the Cowboys starter once the regular season begins in September. Claiborne certainly has an uphill battle if he’s going to record four or more interceptions in 2014. But he has shown the ability to do so at the college level. It just hasn’t translated over to his pro career yet.
Now, it’s your turn. Answer the question below then head further down the page to our comment section to tell us why. Get in on the great conversation with passionate fans just like you by joining the ever growing Landry Hat community. Go Cowboys!
