Year after year, I and other Dallas Cowboys fans go into the NFL season asking the same questions: Will this be OUR year? Will we make it to the playoffs? Will Tony Romo jump over his many hurdles? Will the Cowboys break my heart once again? For America’s Team, 2012 is no different. As usual, we are loaded with talent. I say WE, because I’ve been a part of this team since I was 8 years old. I’m more than a fan, and there are many like me. We pour ourselves into this team every season, and we are waiting for some kind of payoff. The 2012 Dallas Cowboys had a very good offseason. We drafted very well, and we picked up some much-needed help on defense. Since there is no lockout, we are well rested and banged up players we lost are rehabilitated. Costly injuries last year made a huge impact on last season. In a year where other teams are dealing with contract disputes and troubles with the law, it’s been relatively quiet for the Cowboys. I’m not a big fan of Jerry Jones as a GM, or of his incessant need to be the face of my Cowboys.

He has consistently been one of the best TEs in the league–definitely the best in this division. WRs Dez Bryant and Miles Austin are capable of putting up great numbers for a fantasy team. The running game will be effective behind the running tandem of DeMarco Murray and Felix Jones, who have home run hitter ability. Like I said we are stacked with talent! Lastly, the Cowboys defense is a much improved unit that will shut down offenses and score points. Continue reading
