Dallas Cowboys: 5 thoughts about 2018 training camp
Yes, Dallas Cowboys football is here. It’s getting hot on the field. It’s a new day. Let’s talk about five quick thoughts on have so far this training camp.
Well, the 2018 football season for the Dallas Cowboys is here. Things are heating up. On the field and off it as well.
Injuries this time of year are unfortunate, but it’s part of the show. Speaking of show business, the Cowboys don’t disappoint with some soap opera in the form of Dez Bryant. And, the Cowboys are the world’s most valuable sports team, again.
There’s a lot to discuss with the Dallas Cowboys in training camp. So yes, dear Cowboys Nation, it’s football time.
Here are five thoughts I have. Enjoy.
Cedrick Wilson goes down
The wide receiver room needs ammunition. Unfortunately, the Boys are without Wilson moving forward. He could be back around as early as November. But, of course, things in the Dallas football world will be in the deep end at that point.
This isn’t how this era post-Dez Bryant and Jason Witten needs to head in. Wilson is no replacement by any means. But you’d love to have the receiver core in full capacity in this transition.
Dez Bryant goes mad
The Dallas Cowboys are a soap opera show. There’s nothing wrong with this. Any Cowboys fan know a little drama in Big D never hurt anybody. In fact, the Cowboys have a built an empire on this sort of playbook from reality shows.
Here’s the thing with Dez though — he doesn’t have a job, yet. Sure, things will change in terms of his employment status.
My first thought after Bryant went on a tirade on Twitter was Emmitt Smith. Remember when Smith came back to Dallas wearing the red Cardinals uniform? Things didn’t go too well. Bryant must keep himself away from the defense.
Things could get ugly. I don’t know about you, but Sean Lee chasing me around isn’t my idea of a fun Sunday.
The Dallas Cowboys are the world’s most valued team
The Dallas Cowboys have earned the title of being the world’s most valuable sports franchise. Chalk this up as a win? Need I ask? Anyone care?
It’s great that the trains of Dallas fans are loading up. I wonder what a Super Bowl win could do for this franchise. Imagine that.
High-five, I guess.
Jason Garrett has the right guys
Following Dez Bryant’s remarks, Sean Lee and Travis Frederick handled their PR duties superbly. Talk about just doing your job, man.
Sure, the Dallas Cowboys and Jason Garrett have the right guys in the building. With Dez Bryant out, the team has handled the Bryant thing with class. We can’t take that away. Even Jason Witten is saying the right things and he is long gone.
With Garrett’s guys in place, can this translate into more wins? Ah, that’s the question.
Dak to the future no more
Hey look: Dak Prescott turned 25 last Sunday.
The future is now. Entering his third season as a pro, many eyeballs around the league are wondering how Prescott handles himself after his sequel. No Dez Bryant. No Jason Witten. No problem?
One thing is clear: Prescott’s will have to swim in deeper waters this season. His career and also Jason Garrett’s could turn north or south from this point on.
