Is it April?! How is it April, where'd all the time go? Anyway, the NFL Season is starting to grow closer and closer to us, and the Dallas Cowboys 2023 season is nearing its beginning.
There is a lot of talk and opinions floating in the air right now about the Cowboys' offense. Fans are worried that the team's offense will become the reason for the team's overall downfall next season.
The same problem occurred last year when the offense just couldn't pick up during the Divisional Round playoff game against the San Francisco 49ers. After this game, fans turned to blame Quarterback Dak Prescott and the offense for the 12-19 loss.
This put everyone into a frenzy of pointing fingers at staff, quarterbacks, other players, and more.
Now that this madness is behind us, we may ask ourselves a valid question.
Will the Cowboys' offense be better this year?
It's tough to say, but many people are leaning toward “no”. The reason for that response is that Quarterback Dak Prescott is back for one more spin with the boys.
Many fans were looking forward to his demise and have been awaiting a new quarterback to lead the Cowboys to victory, unlike Prescott has done. While the Cowboys could still grab a quarterback from this year's draft, it's still likely that they will be sticking with Dak Prescott for one more year.
Perhaps that pressure will motivate Prescott more? He knows his job is on the line. Scratch that: He knows his job is beyond the line.
This means that Prescott will have to play even harder this season. He must be mentally prepared for each game and not be fearful of his surroundings.
While Prescott is the overall leader of the offense, it is not always about him when it comes to how the offense plays out. Other players have a responsibility too and must contribute their own talent.
Many fans see Running Back Tony Pollard contributing the most. After his big season last year where he proved that he was starter material, Pollard is ready to be a beast for the team.
With his young, quick legs we will be seeing a lot of skill coming out of him this year and many more to come.
One downside to this year's offense is that there will be no Tight End Dalton Schultz. Schultz is now in Houston where he will be getting a lot less money than if he were in Dallas. I could go on and on about how his agent should be fired, but I'll save that for later.
Without him, Jake Ferguson will need to step up, which he should. Many fans trust Ferguson and are ready for him to be the new tight end for the Cowboys.
The receivers are going to be great next year, period.
With CeeDee Lamb, T.Y. Hilton, and now Brandin Cooks, the wide receiver class is going to be a superpower next season.
The Cowboys' offensive line will also look good next year, a lot better than others, meaning that Prescott will have much more time to throw the ball than he has over the past few seasons.
Overall, the offense looks great. The only hump that the team will need to get over is Dak Prescott.
Prescott knows how important this season is, and not just that, he knows how much it means to the fans. If Prescott plays his heart out this year, and all the other cylinders fire around him then I say they actually have a chance to go far.
Everything is on Dak Prescott's shoulders. Let's hope that the amount of pressure is enough to make this year a good one for our team.
