Offensive Position Battles
Since Jason Garrett took over in 2010, one of his main objectives was to breed competition at each position on the team. He wanted players that would push each other and make sure that every starting position was earned the hard way. This year, the list of offensive position battles is a little less competition than we’ve seen in recent years.
There are several positions on offense that are simply locked up with big names and proven up-and-comers, so we’re not gonna spend a lot of time on them.
If the injury bug skips training camp (also known as the dreaded “Goat Mouth”) for Dallas this year then the list to the left is pretty much a partial depth chart. That’s a really good sign when you can go into training camp and all but one position has been settled in your base offensive formation.
Let’s take a closer look at the X’s.
