Dallas Cowboys’ offseason plan: Five areas to address

Dallas has aced every possible regular-season test. They’ve won shootouts against high-flying offenses like the Steelers and Redskins. They’ve completed comebacks against strong defenses like the Eagles and Ravens. The Cowboys even showed Thursday night they could win a defensive battle on the road in Minnesota, a rare game where their power-packed offense lacked electricity. Securing the No. 1 seed in the NFC is a matter of when, not if. A chance to avenge the team’s only loss thus far next week at MetLife Stadium could be the last truly meaningful game the Cowboys play until mid-January. In the meantime, the Fighting Daks will adjust to their new role. With December here, they have transformed from the season’s best story to favorites for the Super Bowl. Now comes the hard part.

Dallas Cowboys in good hands with rookie QB Dak Prescott

cheap nfl jerseys Heavily armed on offense with Pro Bowl-level, and often young, talent at every position, the Cowboys must turn their attention to the other side of the ball if they are to match up with a new crop of NFC East receivers in Brandon Marshall, Terrelle Pryor and Alshon Jeffery. That’s before even thinking about contending in the postseason with the likes of Aaron Rodgers, Matt Ryan and, just maybe, Tom Brady buying time in the pocket. Dallas’ “plan”, as Crawford puts it, should then be to target corners, defensive linemen and outside linebackers in the late first round and build through the draft. Then, hope they develop and flourish in Marinelli’s system in time for a Super Bowl run. While the Cowboys are in the market for a veteran quarterback to back up rookie Dak Prescott with Tony Romo sidelined for two months, they are not interested…
