The Cowboys will win some games. Maybe as many as ten. They have some very talented players. But they don’t have enough of them. I think their revamped receiving corps will be fine, although maybe not right away. But there are too many holes and questions in their offensive line, and Elliott is reaching the point in his career at which his performance will decline. Defensively, Parsons and Diggs are All-Universe, but it falls off after that. Lil’ Abner has perpetuated an unstable work environment, and Mike McCarthy has an understandable case of the yips, as well as a sore neck from constantly looking over his shoulder.
The rest of the NFC East is better than it was a year ago, and the Cowboys are not as good as they were, at least on paper. Philly is a problem.
Oh, and Michael Thomas was back on the field Wednesday at the Saints’ training camp.
Super Bowl? You have to win the NFC, right? How are they gonna do that? In no order, the Rams, Bucs, Saints and Packers are all better than Dallas, and the ‘Niners, Vikings, Cardinals and Eagles could be, too. Nope, the string of Cowboy seasons with no SB will extend to 27 years.
Yes, of course I hope we get Brittney Griner and Paul Whelan back home immediately, even though I find this particular proposed prisoner swap distasteful. But that’s the only way we can get them back, so let’s proceed. But don’t ask me to regard Griner as a folk hero.
“My career is not over.” So says Angels’ superstar Mike Trout, despite his disclosure of what is described as a “rare” and serious back condition. I hope he’s right. Baseball needs Mike Trout.
Swept by the A’s? Nobody gets swept by the A’s. At least nobody had in 31 previous series against the A’s. Congrats, ‘Stros.
Bye-bye, Bubba. And take your pink driver with you. That’s a shame. I’ve enjoyed watching you play. But I can’t go for The Murderous Saudi Sportswashing Tour. No can do…
