America’s Team has the best record in the league for what seems like the first time since i’ve been alive.
They have had successful seasons in years’ past but never have they dominated the way they have this season.
They are a running team. Yes, they are finally running the dang football.
Demarco Murray is looking like the best running back in the league, behind what many consider the best offensive line in the league.
Zach Martin (guard) and Tyron Smith (tackle) may be the best two players in all of football at their respected positions.
Jerry Jones says that Tony Romo is having his best season so far at quarterback.
Stephen A. Smith (the OG Cowboy hater) said that with an ailing Calvin Johnson Jr., the Cowboys’ Dez Bryant may now be the best wide receiver in the NFL.
It seems many people are jumping on the bandwagon and/or recognizing the Cowboys as a legit contender for the Super Bowl.
But should they be?
Is this team really as good as people think?
In the words of my man Michael Smith, “Numbers Never Lie.” So lets take a look at where the Cowboys stand statistically against other teams in the NFL.
Total Yards Offense:
Total Yards Rushing:
Total Yards Passing:
Total Yards Defense:
These are just a few stats but everything seems very encouraging for Cowboys fans.
The only concern might just be the defense.
The defense this year has held their own but numbers don’t lie.
20th in the league may be good, but I’m not sure that 20th is Super Bowl worthy.
The Cowboys are going to get Demarcus Lawerence back in a few weeks and we’ll have to see what kind of impact he has on the team.
But judging by the eye test, this defense seems ‘good enough’ to contend. Especially with such a dominating run-game, the defense doesn’t even have to be on the field that much.
We’ll see in this week’s matchup against the Redskins if this team is poised to run the table for the rest of the season, but so far I think all of #CowboysNation can join in and say “How Bout Dem Cowboys.”
Thanks for reading.
