As we all know, this offseason has been pretty crazy. Lots of action has taken place within the Dallas Cowboys facilities. With signings, trades, and cuts, how much more bizarre can this year get?
During this chaos, fans have had the opportunity to get a good look at some of the new hires within the team.
New coaches and players can sometimes be frightening to people, as it can be hard to trust change. So today, we'll look through all the new faces on the team and determine if they are worth the fan's trust.
You probably knew this man would pop up in the article. Offensive Coordinator Brian Schottenheimer will be able to show off his skills this season with the Cowboys.
Shortly after Head Coach Mike McCarthy fired Kellen Moore, Schottenheimer came into the light and was hired by Dallas. This hire made many fans have mixed emotions, such as feelings of anxiety.
Schottenheimer has had a history of unstable talent. One year, he's coaching Russell Wilson to big wins with Seattle, and in another year he's getting fired by the Jacksonville Jaguars. Seems like consistency isn't on his side… Ever.
This isn't something that fans should be concerned about though. A lot of the time, newer coaches find immediate success with teams they aren't familiar with.
In this situation, it's best to put your trust in many people rather than just one.
Fans should trust the offense overall than just Schottenheimer in general.
Schottenheimer is going to be a good coach, but it may take him and his fans a quick minute to get used to it all. This is fine though, as fans shouldn't worry too much about this installment.
Definitely a trustworthy player right here.
Gilmore has so much experience in the NFL and he still has amazing talent to give. While his age is slowly creeping up on him and retirement is nearing, the man still has what he's got to be a great athlete.
The Cowboys managed to grab Gilmore off of the Indianapolis Colts for a steal price, only giving up a 5th-round pick.
Everyone will see this year just how good Gilmore still is, and the Cowboys will benefit massively from this trade.
Last season we got to see the offense struggle because of one thing, a lack of wide receivers.
Yes, there were other problems with the offense here and there, but having no wide receivers can hurt any team tremendously. While having Wide Receiver CeeDee Lamb on the team was very helpful, it takes more than just one great receiver to win it all.
Que the new face of our wide receiver squad, Brandin Cooks.
The Dallas Cowboys traded to the Houston Texans a 5th, and 6th round pick for Cooks. Many fans may think we traded too much for him but don't forget that Cooks was the 20th overall pick in the 2014 NFL Draft.
The Cowboys are building a super team with some older players, which I think is a genius idea. We already have a lot of younger talent on the team such as players like Micah Parsons, but as we recruit these older guys, it could really turn the team around.
I think all three of these picks are trustworthy decisions by the staff. Each player/ coach is talented at their job and should make some good things happen while in Dallas.
