"THIS IS OUR YEAR!" Yes I know we Dallas Cowboys fans say that every year, but this year we really meant and so did our talent... or so we thought. This season seamed to be THE season that our beloved Dallas Cowboys would finally make it back to the Super Bowl, and to be honest we had a really good chance. Cowboys haters take off your "I hate Dallas" hat for a moment and put on your thinking cap, because if you really think about it Cowboys could have been in the Super Bowl this season. Here's what I mean. Our defense was IMMACULATE, our Offense was filled with elite WR's, we were stacked at RB, and oh how could we forget that after years of complaints the Cowboys got a new head coach, sounds like a winning season right? Cowboys had ALL of the pieces but couldn't quite put them together to complete the puzzle. So does that mean that some of the pieces didn't quite fit in to the picture, or that the pieces simply weren't placed where they were most valuable to complete the puzzle? Well according to a lot of Cowboys fans, and Cowboys GM Jerry Jones, the problem was a little of both. Fans seem to think that some players no longer fit into Cowboys Super Bowl Picture, and Jerry seems to think that something has to give and those "pieces" will be moved around until Cowboys get the right picture. I however think that we didn't always utilize our best players in the right moments this season. In my opinion Cowboys had so many weapons in all of the vital positions ( which is a good problem that we haven't had in a while) that we underplayed our hand in almost every game. Sure the Cowboys had a few blow out games but none of our players did( Yes. I know about a few players like Dak & Parsons records) but the season did their potential no true justice . There were games that Dak could have really showed how elite he was but the play calling just wasn't there, the talent of course is there because we've all seen it. Amari Cooper and CeeDee Lamb should have been our main targets on offense, had the plays been called as such but again it seems that the coaches may have been either too excited or overwhelmed with all of our offensive options and wound up underserving what should have been two of our biggest weapons this season. Cooper is THE route runner, we rarely saw that from him this season because most of his plays were off key or short passes in the end zone, he wasn't often given the chance at 1on1 plays where he'd most likely outmatch the defender. CeeDee is fast and evasive but again we weren't able to see that much this season because of the short 5-10 yard pass plays that were called, and some clear miscommunication. Zeke and Pollard were a great dynamic duo who could coexist in the field together, Zeke with his obvious power and ability to move with the ball, and Pollards Speed and ability to get outside and run the ball, but we only saw that power duo mostly at the beginning of the season and then suddenly things changed. Our defense that struggled tremendously last year from injuries and so on came into the season full throttle and even more so with the new edition Micah Parsons as well as a returning but Breakout star Cowboy Trevon Diggs. Now of course we have room for improvement in some positions but for the most part we truly had a Super Bowl team and this was "OUR YEAR" until... it wasn't. I'm hanging my Jersey up until next season but not too far back because I suspect after Jerry Jones cleans up shop that the DALLAS COWBOYS will be back with a Vengeance and I'll be back in My favorite Sunday gear.
I am a woman who loves sports, talking, and writing so why not combine them all to make... CANDY'S LOCKER ROOM! Genius, I know. I watch and have played most sports, but the sports that I am really into talking about and watching are basketball and football. If you see a lot of post about the Dallas Cowboys it's not because Jerry Jones hacked my site ( shocking) but because that' s my favorite football team. Aside from my regular job I also co host a Sports radio show which allows me to catch up on more sports and controversial topics to bring here to my readers. However, not too controversial because I HATE that in this day and age we put people on this platform only to try and knock them off of it with slander. Back to sports though and me... two things I never get tired of talking about. If you have any questions or comments feel free to email me or leave a comment on one of my blog post.
