How The Tables Have Turned for 2019 Dallas Cowboys

The was a two-part tale for the Dallas . The first is the story of a mediocre 3-5 team that couldn’t get it going offensively. The second part is about a football team that turned its season around, made the , got a win in the postseason and ultimately lost to the team that ended up representing the in , the .

Surely, 2018 didn’t go as planned. The storylines leading to last season are actually very different from the ones we’re hearing today. Let’s take a look at a few examples of how the tables have turned for the Dallas Cowboys.

The need for a true WR1

Last season, and the Cowboys preached the philosophy of not needing a #1 . While that could’ve sound encouraging at the time, once the season began the team was proven wrong. They did need a WR1. Fortunately, this season we won’t have to worry about it. This year, shouldn’t be a discussion topic among Cowboys’ .

is in the house. And he’s been pretty good since he started playing with a Star on his helmet. If we have conversations about the WR position, they will not be about who’s the #1 guy. With showing up late in the season, it probably won’t be about who is #2 either.

Last year, the Dallas Cowboys were not really the favorites to win the . The had just made by winning their first ever and it seemed like the Cowboys would have to get a wildcard spot to play in January. Now it’s the Cowboys back on top after sweeping the Eagles and turning their once 3-5 season around.

That of course, means a tougher schedule next season. However, it’s nice to be back on top of the division. These two teams will surely have an intense race for the division title next season. Maybe we even see them both in the playoffs for the second consecutive year.

Sean Lee’s uncertain future

I’m pretty sure no one expected to be considered a potential cap casualty for the 2019 season. Even if he was, it would’ve probably been anticipating an or something like that. No one would’ve imagined that would be so good to take Sean Lee’s job.

The Cowboys’ truly earned the starting role as the ’s weak and he should keep it. With Sean Lee set to return to the field, I’m sure we didn’t expect him to be a backup by now. We’ll have to wait and see if the Cowboys decide to part ways with him. As a fan, it would certainly be painful. But we can’t deny it would be a move that makes sense.
