One full week and some change into training camp is certainly not enough data to go off of, however there is a hint of possibility that is buzzing around Oxnard, California. That possibility is of a dominant offense, the likes of which could compare to some of the greatest offenses in the history of the Dallas Cowboys.
Is it the defense that is making the offense look so good? Who knows? Who cares really?? We need something to be positive about, amidst all the news of injuries and doom and gloom that surrounds the “what if’s” of the defense. Look no further than the offense.
There are several outliers in place that indicate that this could possibly be the best version of a Dallas Cowboys offense ever and that is certainly saying something. When you think of all the great players throughout the history of the NFL that have put on a White and Blue jersey with that Silver helmet and that gleaming Star upon it, the names are a who’s who of Hall of Famers. Roger Staubach and Troy Aikman. Emmitt Smith and Tony Dorsett. Michael Irvin and Drew Pearson. Rayfield Wright and Larry Allen. Some of the greatest players to ever play the game… Period. And this version may just be up to the task to match the output of these all-timer’s or even better it.
Let’s take a look back through history and review the case for why the 2014 Dallas Cowboys will, in fact, be the best offense that this franchise has ever seen.
