The Dallas Cowboys expectations are simple for the 2010 NFL season. Make sure they end their season at home for the Super Bowl. Dallas has faltered in the NFL Playoffs their last few appearances with Tony Romo and they will have to get the monkey off Romo’s back.
Tony Romo has a reputation in big games and the NFL Playoffs. Romo is described as a choker and a quarterback that is not capable of leading a team to a Super Bowl title by his detractors. Romo supporters stand behind him, despite his lack of titles but this is the season of no excuses for Romo and the Dallas Cowboys.
Can Tony Romo Deliver a Hometown NFL Super Bowl to Owner Jerry Jones?
Once Jerry Jones built his new Cowboys Stadium for over one billion dollars, the pressure was on. Tony Romo has yet to prove he can win under pressure and this NFL season will be pressure filled from the opening game and will compound with each subsequent game.
There is another way to look at the pressure filled season for the Dallas Cowboys and Tony Romo. They will be accustomed to the pressure once the NFL season starts and Romo may be able to shake his reputation as a great regular season QB and a terrible NFL Playoff QB.
Dallas Cowboys Have the Best Offensive Weapons in the NFL
Pick your poison with the Dallas Cowboys. Dallas can run the ball down an opponent’s throat with a straight ahead banger, Marion Barber or send Felix Jones around the end for a huge breakaway run. Jones and Barber are a perfect tandem in the backfield. Jones has the speed on the outside and Barber can punish the defense like no other running back.
Tony Romo has great receivers on the outside and across the middle. Across the middle he has the best tight end in football, Jason Witten. Witten has no fear and loves to deliver a blow after catching the ball. Across from Witten and occasionally giving Witten a breather is Martellus Bennett, who will soon develop into a number one tight end himself.
Dallas Cowboys Wide Receivers May be Young but They are Fast
On the outside, the Dallas Cowboys have given Tony Romo a great target in Miles Austin. Austin has developed into Romo’s go-to guy as a wide receiver. Austin became Romo’s number one target after Roy Williams fell short of expectations.
Related to Williams inability to step up as the number one receiver, was the Dallas Cowboys NFL Draft in April. Dallas drafted Dez Bryant out of Oklahoma State and are optimistic he will open the Dallas Cowboys offense. Bryant comes with baggage but he has the speed to stretch the field and open up the middle for Tony Romo.
Dallas Cowboys Defense Will Remain Toughest in NFL
There were no weak links in the Dallas Cowboys defense and the 2010 NFL season will continue to showcase their team speed and workman like attitude. Demarcus Ware is the leader on defense and the Dallas Cowboys added some depth with their NFL Draft picks.
The Dallas Cowboys grabbed two cornerbacks, Akwasi Owusu-Ansah and Jamar Wall both very athletic corners that will have time to develop. Dallas also was happy with their second pick of the NFL Draft, a rough and ready linebacker from Penn State, Sean Lee.
Las Vegas sets Dallas Cowboys Over/Under Win Total at 9.5
The Las Vegas Hilton Superbook is not impressed with the Dallas Cowboys as many prognosticators are. They have set the Over/Under win total for the Dallas Cowboys at 9.5 wins. It sounds almost to good to be true when looking at the Cowboys schedule and the NFC East in 2010. Look for the Dallas Cowboys to win 11 to 12 games during the 2010 NFL season but look for them to lose in the NFL Conference Championship Game.
