Teams Drop Down

Writers Drop Down

Sunday, July 7, 2013

Dallas has so many questions to answer this season. Biggest question for each team heading into camp.

The Cowboys are america's team, there's no denying that fact.  They get more attention than most teams (except maybe the Steelers) and that's exactly what their owner/part-time GM wants.  They've given Romo a huge contract which, considering the QBs in the league, I have no problem with them doing.  What I do have a problem with is Jerry Jones deciding to run around talking about how much time Romo is going to spend preparing NOW and how much involvement he is going to have in the offensive planning NOW.  If Jerry would keep his mouth closed and let the Romo's play prove how much he's prepared, there would be less pressure on him. 

As we head into camp, each team has at least one major question to answer. 

AFC East

Patriots - How will Brady respond with all new skill position players
Dolphins - What impact does Wallace have on Tannehill's development
Bills - Do the Bills finally have a QB in EJ Manual
Jets - The question of Sanchez vs Geno does not matter, they need an offensive line and WRs that can catch.

AFC North

Ravens - How will defense respond without Lewis and Reed
Browns - Can they generate any offense?  When is the Weeden experiment over and when does TR become DMC?
Bengals - Do the Bengals have enough weapons to jump over Balt and Pitt in the division
Steelers - How will the offense respond with some familiar faces gone, who steps up.

AFC South

Colts - Does Luck suffer a sophomore slump?  I expect them to get better but have fewer wins.
Titans - Is this Lockers last season?  Does CJ rebound or is his career over?
Jax - What are they doing in Jacksonville? 
Texans - Is this the year the window closes in Houston?  Foster and Johnson aren't getting younger.

AFC West

Chiefs - Can Reid and Smith lead KC to the division title.
Broncos - How does Wes Welker integrate into a Peyton Manning offense.
Raiders - Flynn, Pryor or Wilson....does it even matter.
Chargers - Is the Rivers era coming to a close?  Will he be remembered for lost potential?

NFC East

Redskins - Does RG3 recover fully and play a full season..... and can he remain healthy.
Eagles - What does Chip Kelly do in the NFL and who is his QB.
Dallas - Will Romo's new contract and role in planning the offense make a difference.
Giants - Will the Defense return to championship form.

NFC North

Lions - Forget the defense, what about three new starters on the offensive line.  
Bears - Will the new coach bring an offensive explosion for Cutler.
Packers - Do they have enough defense and running game to make it to New York.
Vikings - How does AP defy the odds coming off of a 2,000yd season.

NFC South

Saints - Will Sean Payton's return put the Saints back in a SB run.
Bucs - Has Revis fully recovered from his knee injury.
Panthers - Will the new offense help or hurt Newton.
Falcons - Do the Falcons take the next step and play for the SB this year.

NFC West

49ers - Even with the loss of Crabtree, is this a better offense than last year.
Seahawks - Can Harvin help Wilson avoid a sophomore slump.
Rams - Is this Bradford's last year to prove he's a NFL QB.
Cards - Palmer gives them something at QB, they had nothing last year.

I know I listed more than one for some teams and made some statements instead of questions.....but did I miss any major ones?

  1. Romo will continue to be his same underperforming, overpaid jerkoff self. Bpyz in da hood finish last in NFC East.

  2. Tough for Romo to be a factor if he is flat on his addition to the offensive line and we think its fixed???

  3. As usual, most writers cannot resist using the Cowboys name brand, especially using Tony Romo in vain to gain attention and more readership.

    For the first anonymous post, the Eagles finish last in the NFC East, not the Cowboys. Get it right next time before you jump on a post.

    Romo is not the the key, it is the OL and RB along with a consistent new 4-3 defense.

    Tony continues to put together big stats but it has not translated to wins in big games. It sort of reminds me of Dan Marino putting up the numbers but nothing to show for it because he lack support from the defense.

    And please do not bring up the talent issue in skilled positions because Dallas is still missing some key ingredients on defense (Ware, Lee, and Spencer are the only bright stars) and the offense (the missing link with the OL and constant injuries to RB).

  4. There are few QB's in the NFL that can make the plays Romo makes while constantly running for his life. he is under constant pressure. The thing is he makes it look easy, so people do not fully appreciate what he does on a routine basis. If the Cowboys had ANY other QB over these past 8+ years, they would been lucky to win 2 games a year.
