I’m not sure why but I am struggling to figure out what changed to give these Dallas Cowboys such quiet confidence in this year’s training camp. There is a game today and I am talking about how even this team has been.

The Cowboys should roll out one of the best offensive lines in the entire league if they can stay healthy. I think the team has an issue with the depth on the interior of the line but the starting five is something to be envious about.

The wide receiver group is often referred to as a three-headed monster but difficult decisions remain on what to do with those behind them as the group as a whole is very talented. Predictions about having three 1,000-yard receiving are not that far-fetched.

The tight end group could vault themselves into the two-headed monster category by year’s end. The group behind the two starters are quietly turning heads and the team could opt to carry four players from this group into the final 53-man roster.

The running backs are primed to take advantage of light fronts as the mere mention of the weapons we just discussed are enough to keep defensive coordinators in their nickel defense as opposed to crowding the line of scrimmage.

They are led by a no-doubt top ten quarterback whose career trajectory will undoubtedly continue to rise.

The defense has put together a solid performance and is starting to give hope to those who doubted them to begin the season. I have to admit that I was hopeful but skeptical with some of the moves the team made.

The secondary has made tremendous strides as that could be a group that produces the most breakout players. Young, long, and fast is a narrative that is starting to take shape right before our eyes.

The linebacker group is so deep that there could be backup players that perform better than other teams’ starters. The diversity this group brings is something I haven’t seen since the early 90s.

The defensive line is another position group that could produce some unlikely heroes. The diversity, length, and hunger are all qualities very good units start out with. The concern is still there but I am much more confident after seeing this group practice.

It is up to the coaching staff to bring these talented yet unproven position groups to come together and play as one. That is the key to winning games and that is what I think will propel the Dallas Cowboys to win the NFC East.

The race has already started and it appears as if coming together as a team is much harder in the NFC East than the rest of the NFL.
