NFL  > General NFL  > Cowboys Schedule, predicted wins and losses

I think the Cowboys will pull out a 10-6 season this year, barring major injuries. Their wins will include, the Giants, Seahawks, Buccaneers, Falcons, Eagles, Browns, Redskins (twice), and maybe the Ravens. Or the Bengals. Maybe the Bears. Or Panthers.

If the defense can do as supposedly advertised, and limit injuries, maybe they can win more than 10, but I think 10 wins is possible. It's still going to be tough, regardless.

More worried about the offense. I have a feeling Witten will be out longer than originally anticipated. Can Austin stay on the field? Dez (?)??. The offensive line may be very offensive if they suffer injuries. Just looking at the mess during camp was rather scary. If Romo has to run for his life and has to throw to guys like Ogletree they will be 7-9 at best.

Howdy Bull,
The way i see it,is anything's possible,1 more game of preseason and wierdly enough? both our Teams play in the final game of the preseason.

The thing is, have they prepared the younger players to replace others, such as Witten? He can't play forever. Austin seems like he's a flash in the pan. I mean, he's good WHEN he can play, but the last couple of years, he's had problems staying on the field, like you said.

Injuries will decimate any team. Most training camps are a mess anyway. Once the season gets going, hopefully things will get more in sync. Ogletree looked fairly good to me, when I saw him playing. But, will he be more consistent?

Guess we'll see soon.

Howdy EZ! Yes, anything is possible. That's what I like about the game. Any team can beat any other team on any given day. I'd watch them all play if they'd televise them all, and not just the Cowboys.

I don't see much depth on the Cowboys at key positions. They look fairly solid on defense but there seem to be a lot of holes on offense. When they had to play backups on the offensive line it was not good. What will the 3-5 receivers do when it counts? Hopefully Demarco Murray stays healthy.

They might surprise you, tho. Being realistic, I expect at least a 10-6 season, as I said. Maybe even a post season win, but that's likely as far as it will go. If Romo can stay healthy, he can improvise if someone misses a block.....but, will he?

He was fun to watch when he did improvise, but they've kind of reined him in the last few years, making him more of a pocket passer.....he needs to roll out more often.

I hope you are right Bull but with their schedule and offensive issues I can't get better than 7 wins right now.

All we can do is watch and see, and we do that every year anyway, don't we?......lol.........The thing is, the team has changed, but so has every other team. The ones on the 'Boys's schedule may or may NOT be as good as predicted, or they may have injury issues as well.

The only true way of knowing is watching each game as it plays out......and of course, hope..................lol

Oh yeah? Good philosophy there. Why even bother commenting then? You might have fat hookers talking to you.

Thanks, EZ.......and good luck to your Bengals. I like that Dalton kid (thinking he's from Texas?) and hope he makes a damn good QB for ya...........at least in the mold of Ken Anderson anyway.
