A New Way to Look at the Cowboys, NFL, and Fantasy Football

This tidbit shocked us.  Upon reading it, we looked into our database and it seems to be true.  Anyone want to bet this will change by the end of 2010?

There doesn’t seem to be much interest on Miami’s part.  We are rapidly becoming one of the few media outlets still predicting Crayton to be in Dallas in 2010.

Placing the Super Bowl teams at No. 1 and No. 2 seems to have become standard practice nowadays, but we don’t think it is a necessity.  Nonetheless, the No. 4 positions seems like a suitable one for Dallas.

We think Anderon’s future is in the hands of Roger Goodell.  If Anderson gets suspended for multiple games, he will likely be cut.  If not, however, we think he will stay in Dallas this season.  Remember, offensive coordinator Jason Garrett loves to use a fullback, and the Cowboys were incredibly successful with Anderson on the field in ’09.

Besides, Anderson was nice enough to take pictures with “The Blonde Side” author Amber Leigh.

Jerry Jones on Remaining Stadium Expenses

Jenkins is quickly becoming the Cowboys’ best cornerback.  We gave him an “A-” grade for his work last year, and if he can improve his tackling, Jenkins will become one of the NFL’s best CBs.

Of the forecasts, we agree with all except “9. Tony Romo will throw at least five more interceptions but 10 more touchdowns than last year.”  We will have detailed stat projections as the season nears, but we don’t see Romo throwing 10 more TDs this year.

Ball performed fairly well in coverage last season as a safety, allowing a completion rate of just 45.0% and only 6.35 yards-per-attempt.  However, his missed tackle percentage of 22.2% must improve dramatically.  Overall, we gave Ball a “C+” grade for the season.

  1. Thanks for the link. Ten extra touchdowns might be a little bold, but Dez is a TD machine and he’ll draw attention in the red zone, freeing up Witten, Bennett and Williams. I had to go out on a limb somewhere, though. Safe predictions are boring.

  2. Yeah…it is definitely a possibility. I think the thing which will help Romo most is the probable decline in production of Barber in the red zone. If he throws 36 TDs, though, this team will roll into the playoffs.

    Well, what a mass of info. First the Felix stat is astounding. He will get some carries no doubt, but I don’t see a huge impact on goaline plays. Choice may be the guy for that job. Moving on, Crayton is gone if anybody wants him. Kirwin’s comments are much better than King’s. However some of the predictions are questionable. On of the most questionable to me is SD. I just don’t see them being that good on defense. Also, Minnesota will have trouble reproducing last years results, and if Favre isn’t there they drop 7 or 8 spots. I think talent wise we are ranked about right. But our schedule is brutal, and we will be everyones Superbowl. BTW I still think Anderson goes, and pretty much anybody would do a photo with A.L.

  4. John–I agree Choice SHOULD be the goal line/short-yardage guy, but I have a feeling Barber will stick there, at least initially.

    And I love the last comment haha.
