Here are five random thoughts on the Dallas Cowboys preseason against the Los Angeles Rams and the upcoming match against the Miami Dolphins.
Yeah, I know: Preseason football does not matter. Only, I have to admit, this one does. Follow me for a second here.
You got a Dallas Cowboys squad coming off a bad juju 4-12 season, just two years removed from a 12-4 (13-5 overall) record in 2014. Nobody remembers preseason records, nor do the final scores prelude to what will happen when the regular season begins. It’s easy to discount August football in the NFL.
But this game was different. It felt different. Judging from how battered and injured the Cowboys were last year, this contest looked completely different.
With the Los Angeles Rams (I love spelling that out B.T.W.) back at the LA Coliseum, the Cowboys helped bring NFL action back into the city for the first time since 1994. Nearly 90,000 attended, not to mention the crowds watching the game on television.
Before the Cowboys take on the Miami Dolphins at home Friday night, a game you know you’re curious about, I’d like to run across several random thoughts I had about last Saturday’s game as well as how the future might unfold for Dallas.
