As the Dallas Cowboys prepare for the upcoming 2020 NFL season, no one knows exactly what to expect from them. On one hand, they have the talent to compete for a Super Bowl. But, there are a lot of questions surrounding their consistency and new head coach Mike McCarthy.
While only time will tell how good this Cowboys team is capable of being, there is one former NFL superstar who sees a potential Super Bowl run in their future. That former superstar would be Michael Vick.
In a segment on First Things First, Vick broke down why he feels that the Cowboys have the pieces put together to compete for a championship under McCarthy.
McCarthy was a big addition for the Cowboys. After years of struggling with consistency under former head coach Jason Garrett, McCarthy will be a breath of fresh air. Even though things didn’t end well during his time with the Packers, McCarthy is a great football coach.
Dak Prescott did not receive a new contract this offseason either, which has raised cause for concern about the Cowboys potentially losing him. They did lock up star wideout Amari Cooper to a big contract.
An offense led by Prescott, Cooper, and Ezekiel Elliott is going to be lethal. Add in key playmakers like CeeDee Lamb and Michael Gallup along with a talented offensive line and the Cowboys are going to put up points.
Defensively, the Cowboys went out and beefed up their defensive line with Gerald McCoy and Dontari Poe. Ha Ha Clinton-Dix was also brought in to improve their safety position.
All of the cards line up to the Cowboys being a tough team to beat. If they buy in to McCarthy’s system, the sky is the limit. Jerry Jones and company have a lot of reasons to be excited about the upcoming season.
Expect to see the Cowboys come out looking to prove a point. They suffered an embarrassing finish to the 2019 season and missed the playoffs. Nothing would be better for the franchise than making a deep playoff run in 2020.
