The Dallas Cowboys, who missed the playoffs last season, decided to make some crucial decisions concerning the betterment of the team during the off season this year. The Cowboys surprisingly released all-star wide receiver Terrell Owens, gaining nothing for him in a trade. After that move the Cowboys continued to clear house, releasing troubled corner back Adam Jones, Nose Tackle Tank Johnson, and long time Strong Safety Roy Williams. These players were believed to be the source of the problem in the locker room for the Dallas Cowboys franchise the last couple of years.
With the absence of Terrell Owens fro the team, more of the big play responsibility will fall on the shoulders of quarterback Tony Romo. Lucky for Romo the Cowboys have decided to re-design the offense, relying heavily on the rushing attack of Marion Barber, Felix Jones, and Tahsard choice to move the ball down the field with effectiveness. The Cowboys have good odds to win the Super Bowl this season, at 15:1.
