The biggest question surrounding the Dallas Cowboys as each season approaches seems to be whether Tony Romo will be healthy enough to keep the team competitive for a full season, and this year is no exception.
Elsewhere in the NFC East, other teams are facing their own quarterback questions. For the Philadelphia Eagles, all eyes are on the development of Carson Wentz. Wentz isn’t expected to start this year, but anything is possible if he manages to Authentic Cliff Avril Jersey outplay Sam Bradford in these weeks leading up to the season.
In Washington, fans want to know whether Kirk Cousins’ performance last year was a fluke, or if they can expect more of the same from him this season. The New York Giants are pretty set in knowing what to expect from Eli Manning, but they’re likely eager to get a look at the new defensive players they brought in via free agency during training camp.
The Cowboys made it clear the run game would Authentic Cortez Kennedy Jersey be a priority this season after signing Alfred Morris as a free agent and then selecting Ezekiel Elliott with the fourth overall pick in the 2016 draft. Elliott will likely carry the bulk of the workload, but Morris should get opportunities, too. The plans Dallas has at this position should become clearer over the course of camp.
The most pressing storyline for the Cowboys heading into the season, as it often is, will be Tony Romo’s health. Romo is coming off a fractured collarbone and a fractured clavicle last season, and if the Cowboys want to challenge for the NFC East and make a run in the postseason, they need Romo at full strength. Without Romo, the Cowboys would have to lean on (mostly) unproven backup Kellen Moore and rookie fourth-round pick Dak Prescott. Yikes!
Washington drafted a little help for Cousins, snagging wide receiver Josh Doctson in the first round of the 2016 draft. Doctson is nursing an Achilles injury that kept him sidelined during OTAs and minicamp. Washington needs Doctson at full strength, so fans should keep an eye on his status and development throughout camp.
Perhaps the biggest addition for Washington this offseason was their signing of Josh Norman. An All-Pro corner, he should bolster a secondary that desperately needs help. Training camp will be an important time for him to build rapport with his teammates and acclimate to Washington’s scheme.
A clock without hands that says “No Time 2 Sleep!”
But enough time to pull the hands off a clock and bring it with you.
Both the NFL and USA Football acknowledged the errors and told the Times that they would be updating their materials about the program. Scott Hallenbeck, USA Football’s executive director, said that his organization “erred in not conducting a more thorough review.”
The Times report is a significant blow to the NFL, which has been trying to keep youth football programs afloat and ensure that football can remain lucrative in the future. According to the Times, the NFL gave USA Football $45 million in March 2014, largely to encourage more youth leagues to adopt programs like Heads Up Football.
