It's just speculation kevo !lol I didnt see it in a crystal ball.
SF is the 2nd best team in the league my opinion and it is that start that I think will start a chain of events.
The cowboys have the toughest starting schedule they have had in a long time.
the first 6 games are all going to be tougher opponents than they faced last year.
Last year Dallas struggled to beat teams like minnesota at home and wash on the road, both were bad teams.
Now they are going to get one good team after another.
And if you read thru the thread you would see I have said they could go 1-3 2-2 3-1 or even 4-0, but which is more likely??
0-4 is unlikely too , which I found out after looking back to 2003, 2-2 is the most likely.
but me saying 2-2 isnt a very bold statement, so I went out on a limb and said 0-4.
To say you know how tough our opponents are going to be in the NFL is crazy IMO. Maybe in the NBA there's more potential to gauge things like that but we could breeze through SF, it happens. Just wait and see what each team puts on the field in training camp at least before you determine who is winning and losing what games. You could say something like "I think these games here will be tough if the teams are similar to what they were last year, we may not win a game in the first quarter of the season", and that would be a little more reasonable. They could be 4-0, or 0-4, but realistically IF they are similar to last year they will be 2-2 and hoping they don't get injured and the defense rallies from losing Sean Lee and stays... or gets cohesive.
Regardless of what teams we are facing we are an offense who was extremely productive in turning drives into 7 points last year and "on paper" we have improved over what we were putting on the field offensively this year.
What's going to happen on defense is a crapshoot IMO there is POTENTIAL there for a good defense but it's a good defense that is relying on a great many IFs. Ifs are all we have right now though, so it is what it is and it's better than no ifs and no potential.
