    With AJ Brown and Jordan Davis Philly got a lot more dangerous. Pairing Davis with Cox is going to be like Tampas defense.

    Will Hurts move the ball just enough to win? Brown came from another run first offense and put up good numbers.

    Right now it’s looking like a 8-9 season for Dallas if they can’t be assured of even beating Philly.

    IMO— yes. They run the ball well, and that D just got even nastier up front. They found a solid identity by the end of the year, while the wheels fell off spectacularly in Big D.

    Their achilles heel in Philly is the QB and secondary— but their roster has improved and Dallas has regressed.

    The gap between the two teams has shrunk and it’s clear their FO is miles ahead of ours. I see both teams as 8-9, 9-8 rosters— but if Hurts takes even a slight step forward in development, Philly can win the East.

    This year has 8-9 written all over it for Dallas

    Luckily they don't have a good QB but you gotta love the ability of their front office to manouvre the board , be aggressive to acquire talent.

    Not in my opinion.

    QB is still a big question mark, but they are definitely righting the ship after a very mini down period. You knew it was only a matter of time as they have competent ownership and management. I think the Skins are going to be a tough out as well this year. I could easily see the Cowboys going 1-1 against each of them.

    Comes down to Hurts, if he can play at least as well as Dak then they are the NFC East champs. If not then it will be pretty close between Eagles and Cowboys.

    Yes, Jerry is shaping the Boys up for a gap year as they get ready for dumping overpaid aging players and getting a new coaching staff next season. If Dak craps the bed as usual this season they may draft
    high enough next season to begin the search for a new franchise QB. Lots of chaff on this team as the old wheat has molded.

    They were the favorites before the draft.

    We have gotten significantly worse since the 49ers games.

    I hope so in the media so the Cowboys can go under the radar. The Eagles will always be behind us until they find a quarterback. Hurts is not the one.

    Hasn’t everyone on this board been claiming that Cox is washed up? Why are you scared?

    I think the gap is closer. But until Hurts develops or gets replaced I don't think they'll take over.

    Until they find a QB, I think Dallas is still the better team.

    I also think it speaks to Hurts’ situation. They will have to give Brown a huge paycheck after this year. I’m guessing they expect to have a QB on a rookie contract sooner than later.

    With Vegas having Dallas at 10.5 wins o/u and Philly 8.5 where are you possibly pulling this from?

    Put some money on it if you're so confident.

    I think they have gotten closer to Dallas. But my concern is Dallas playing teams not in the division. They have certainly not gotten better or close to it. There's no sense of urgency with this FO... slow as molasses and it looks like at best it will be another one and done season. Get used to that folks.
