    Brandon George and Jon Machota of The Dallas Morning News are back for another episode of Candidly Cowboys. Listen to the podcast below or read up on some of the highlights.

    On Dak's sophomore season
    Brandon George: He said 'I expect things to get harder in year two, and I wouldn't want it any other way.' He knows defenses are going to change the way they play him. They're gonna have more film on him. Coming off the rookie year like he had; it's hard to match that rookie season for any quarterback. Just the few interceptions he had. What did he have? Four? He realizes there's a lot of challenges ahead. But he also is not gonna back down from that.

    Jon Machota: I think the thing with this offense ... as long as there's good health, I think that they'll be fine. There's gonna be things that teams do to take away some of Dak's strengths. But if you tell me that offensive line is intact; you tell me that Ezekiel Elliott is gonna be out there the entire time. Cole Beasley, Terrance Williams, Dez Bryant, Jason Witten. You get the same production you got out of that crew that you got last year. The interception numbers are gonna go up. But I don't think that they'll win 13 games either, though. They had a lot of stuff go the right way in 2016. As long as they stay healthy, I think that they're gonna be one of the best NFC teams out there. But I still think that they can get that done by only winning 10 or 11 games. I don't think Dak is gonna necessarily take another step forward numbers wise. But I think he'll make progress in a lot of key areas. But the big thing is that there's gotta be balance on that offense. And to have that balance, you're gonna need good health.

    George: You think Tony Romo is gonna come back and play or do you think he's done?

    Machota: I totally think he's coming back to play.........

    Linehan loved Dak way more than the scouts.

    Linehan loves Moore. I would tend to give Linehan the benefit of the doubt.

    Also this year's QB class has a few guys at the top and then a bunch of project guys for the 7th round or UDFA. I think the most likely scenario by far is that Moore is the backup and we have another UDFA on the practice squad like Showers was in 2015.
