Dallas Cowboys 2009 NFL Football Future Lines

Dallas Cowboys Betting Odds – NFL Football Future Lines

Let’s take a look at the numbers:

betED NFL Football Betting Odds – Dallas Cowboys Odds To Win NFC East – +250

Season Over/Under Win Total Betting Odds From beted.com – 8.5

All you need to know about the Dallas Cowboys is that Jerry Jones had yet to have his first facelift way back in 1996 when the team last had a winning December record.Last year’s 1-3 December mail-in was pretty much typical of the way this group has played when the weather cools and games mean most.

Will 2009 be any different for the team with 11-5 talent and an 8-8 heart? Maybe not, but some things will at least be different. Gone are Terrell Owens and Jessica Simpson and the sideshows they created, and safety Roy Williams has also departed, cutting by 50 percent the number of Roy Williamses on the roster. DL starter Chris Canty was allowed to walk.

What’s left is basically the same group that spit the bit last December, losing three of four and bowing out of the playoff race. It would help a lot if Tony Romo could take better care of the football – he averages close to two turnovers a game.

Romo has some tools to work with – the offensive line is OK, his BFF tight end Jason Witten is back, and RB Felix Jones returns from injury to make things easier on Marion Barber’s legs.

They should move the ball as long as Romo doesn’t feel he doesn’t have to channel a 28-year-old Brett Favre every weekend.

Any chance of a serious playoff run is out of the question if the Boys can’t figure out what to do with a defense that last season gave up 69 more points than any other team in the NFC East. DeMarcus Ware led the team which led the league with 59 sacks, but it was fool’s gold.

Igor Olshansky replaces Canty on the D-line, but linebackers (except Ware) and secondary are ordinary.

Surprising stat: Head coach Wade Phillips starts his third year in Dallas and 8th year as a head coach. His teams have 70 regular season victories and exactly zero playoff wins.

Team strengths: In a best-case scenario the return of Jones should bolster the running game. That may not be sexy enough for the fans, but a dominant running game would keep a suspect defense off the field and give Romo fewer chances to screw up.

Team Weakness: Forget Xs and Os for a bit. This team just needs to suck it up and start winning tough games. In their biggest game of the year in 2008, the Cowboys lost to Philly, 44-6.

  1. This will be a make or break year for both Wade Phillips and Tony Romo. There are no more excuses they can hide behind for not winning.

    Under Phillips guidance, Dallas has become a team of under achievers.

  2. Matt Martz says:

    The biggest news this off-season for the Cowboys was their parting of ways with WR Terrell Owens. The team will have better chemistry without Owens but will lose some explosiveness offensively without him. QB Tony Romo will not doubt have a big year and will benefit from a thundering running game. The combination of RB Marion Barber and Felix Jones along with Tashard Choice gives Dallas one of the better running games in the league. WR Roy Williams will need to step it up and will be the number one target for Romo. Dallas added free agent Keith Brooking at LB and the defense will be very solid up front but will give up some big plays with their young secondary. Dallas will improve from their 2008 season record with a 10-6 finish, earning a wildcard spot.
