I'm tired of the DOOM and GLOOM of the 2013 season!

There are so many reports that we will not be competitive for a few years. I get that we are in rebuilding and we have an ass ton of dead money and we got rid of a few starters from the previous years. Yes we went 8-8 for two years in a row then dropped to 4-12. None of this is any indication that we can not and will not be competitive.

Offense Last year everyone was wondering how pretty much the same players dropped so much production. Most of this was Scheme/ injury/ and Coaching miscues such as play-calling and how to use a players strengths.

Losses

  • DHB as much as I liked his work ethic and downfield blocking- He can be replaced probably Criner and or Streater
  • Myers- Love the guy but where was the blocking and Aus can be a receiving threat.
  • Coaching Staff- Knapp and Pollack
  • Palmer- Good QB Interception at key points drove me, but this was a money thing and provides a realistic competition at QB

Additions

  • Coaching Staff- Olson and Sparano, plus D.A. experience
  • Flynn- This will force Flynn or Pryor to put up or shut up. They both want the starting job and will fight hard for it. This is best for everyone
Defense Last year we had overpaid players players that were a non-factor. Couple this with injuries, lack of depth and new schemes. Lack of on field talent made some players look even better than might actually be.
Losses
  • Dez Bryant, Seymour, Kelly, Tollefson, Huff, McClain, Wheeler, Mitchell, Shaugessy- One can argue that only a few really hurt because they had significant play time. Wheeler, Kelly, Bryant, Huff. Seymour, Tollefson, Shaugnessy, McClain and to some extent Mitchell. were not helping last year and not much the year prior.
Additions
  • Vance Walker, Pat Sims, Roach, Maiava, Burnett, Porter- All of these signings are quality and all of them have more to prove and to some extent more talent then last two years.
  • Coaching A year of Experience
Our roster is better then last year and on Par with what got us 8-8 before as of right now, of course the draft will dictate a lot , but we still have a roster that can compete. I am not guaranteeing playoff bound, but it would not shock me if they made a wildcard or more. There is still a lot of work to do, there are a lot of hungry players with talent on this team, which to me is scarier to play then a team with talent and less to prove.
