    The Panthers game presents itself to me as a potential upset. Most people will expect the Cowboys to win this game at home. However, Carolina is a playoff caliber team, though not much happened in the offseason…Not much happened in the offseason. Meaning not much has changed. They still have the sometimes dangerous Jake Delhomme, the blazing core staring DeAngelo Williams, and the ever so speedy Steve Smith, who, in his last game against the Cowboys beat them for 9 rec and 147 yards. If that’s not enough to get you thinking, their defense is relentless and a bit of a new look. Julius Peppers is capable of dominating and their will reach Romo more then we would like.

    On the other side, Dallas has a league best . Meaning simply that Ware, James, Spencer, and Ratliff will find the slow inconsistent Delhomme enough to rattle his cage. The potent pass rush will cause bad throws, turnovers, and a one dimension , which the Cowboys should be able to stop. Nevertheless, Steve Smith is a burner and DeAngelo Williams can make this game look like the Baltimore game did last year. Now don’t get me wrong I don’t think the Cowboys will lose this game, but I think they could if they aren’t prepared!


    Matchup of the Game:

    DeMarcus Ware Vs Jake Delhomme

    Terrence Newman Vs. Steve Smith

    Bradie James VS DeAngelo Williams
