In the words of the great Aaron Rodgers R-E-L-A-X Cowboys fans, Dez Bryant is not going anywhere this season and will be a part of one of the better teams in a stacked NFC. The Dallas Cowboys were on the cusp last year of returning to the glory days of the 90’s and making a case for another Super Bowl. This team will not sneak up on anyone this year as America’s Team never does and the NFC East is always tough and will be a slug fest.

While We Were Away: The Dallas Cowboys lost their leading rusher in Demarco Murray and left many fans wondering what Jerry Jones and Stephen Jones were spending their money on. The Cowboys did what they have done of recent years and that is build through the draft. They got Byron Jones an athletic corner from UConn and had the gift of Randy Gregory who had some off the field concerns fall to them to help build their young defense and La’el Collins who was one of the better offensive linemen in the draft as well. In a controversial move they signed Greg Hardy who will serve a four game suspension but on the field is a force to be reckoned with. As usual the Cowboys were in the headlines.

2015 Season Outlook: The Cowboys are favorites in the NFC East and should be rightfully so. With a team that was built through the draft surrounded by solid veterans is a good mix of a team that can make a solid run this season. Tony Romo and his lack of mistakes last season with the amount of weapons he has and the amount of time he has to make choices makes this offense who will use a running back by committee approach to add balance as well. Darren McFadden may be able to revive his career and do that behind one of the best offensive lines in NFL history that is still very young. Jason Garrett is the right coach for this team and has the right balance which has been granted with a new extension.

2015 Record: 10-6

The Cowboys will not go 12-4 again due to some of their tough road test this season along without having a number one running back as of yet and playing in a competitive NFC East. This team still has the make up to go deep in the playoffs again and make another Super Bowl run with an improved defense and still a top tier offense.
