As everyone knows, the Cowboys' biggest problem area is Pass Rush. So far, it hasn't been addressed/improved this off-season/Free-agency. To add to the problems, the Secondary is seeing some big changes/overhaul. It remains to be seen if they can shore up the defense with the Draft. If Dallas is unable to correct or address those problems sufficiently, we may find ourselves falling behind the other NFC contenders: Green Bay, Seattle, NY Giants, Atlanta, etc. It remains to be seen if the other teams have sufficiently addressed their deficiencies too. Green Bay: RB, CB, OLine Seattle: OLine NY Giants: Oline Atlanta: Super Bowl Collapse Depression Other Sleeper Teams, Saints (Defense), Carolina (OLine, CB), Cardinals (OLine, QB), Minnesota (OLine, WR) Many of the top Contenders last season were affected by injuries, Seattle & GB (Secondary, OLine). If they are able to avoid similar injuries next season, they will be at the top again. The Giants are a solid OLine away from overtaking Dallas in the NFC East. Dallas was fortunate in many ways last season by avoiding "Major" injuries to key players. This season may or may not be different. If we are unable to shore up our deficiencies and other teams are able to improve on theirs, 2017 could be a tough season. Especially since we play all the top teams with a 1st place Schedule. If the offense stays relatively healthy and the Defense is able to improve slightly over last year, then we should be right in the thick of things. Let's just hope enough is done to give us that shot.
