2006 NFL Divisional Predictions Part 2

NFC East

1. Dallas Cowboys

DALBill and Drew ride off into the sunset as the Cowboys drive through the playoffs to the Super Bowl. Or is it just a fantasy? The Cowboys added the explosive WR, Terrell Owens to give them a leg up in the division, but will it be enough? Drew Bledsoe is one of the most immobile quarterbacks in the league and at some point that spells injury. The Cowboys had better protect him if they want their return to glory to be complete.

The off season for the Cowboys can be summed up in the acquisition of WR, Terrell Owens, but there were defensive improvements as well as they signed LB’s, Rocky Boiman (Ten) and Akin Avodele (Jac) and S, Marcus Coleman (Houston). They also invested in OL protection for Bledsoe in offensive linemen, Jason Fabini (NYJ) and Kyle Kosier (Det). They also picked up K, Mike Vanderjagt (Ind). The main departures were underperforming OL, Larry Allen (SF), DT, La’Roi Glover (STL) and WR, Keyshawn Johnson (Car).

The Cowboys draft took LB, Bobby Carpenter in the first round who could be an impact starter for them this year, followed by a TE and then DE, Jason Hatcher in the 3rd round. The remainder of the draft was a mix of offensive and defensive personnel.

Dallas has already laid claim to the NFC East division title and it could be well within reach if the improved defenses of NY, Washington and Philly don’t hit Bledsoe too much. There may also be tension on the field for sharing the ball with Owens, Glenn and Witten while also running the ball. The Cowboys will need to be on offense 80% of the time to keep everyone happy. Can Bill hold it together? Can T.O. prove whiners prosper? Can Bledsoe stay upright? If all of these things can happen the Cowboys win the East, if not any one of the teams below could leapfrog them and drop the ‘boys in the basement, which is how close this division really is.
