The "All-In" Dallas Cowboys Could End Up All-Out Of The Playoffs

The Cowboys Made No Splash Moves In Free Agency And May Pay The Price

With Teams Around The NFC Making Moves To Improve, The Stationary Cowboys Could Miss The Playoffs Altogether.

As we got into the off-season, Jerry Jones claimed the Cowboys were "all-in" when doing what was necessary to put the team in the best position to win a Super Bowl title. Many assumed this meant aggressively attacking free agency to bring in talented veterans, however, the Cowboys made no moves initially. There were no splash signings, not even for players already on the roster who were due a new contract. Their only notable move was to bring back running back Ezekial Elliot, who many believe is well past his prime.

Meanwhile, other teams across the NFC have made moves to dramatically strengthen their rosters through free agency and the 2024 NFL Draft (The Cowboys received a B- from ESPN's Mel Kieper, Jr) and will enter the new season with their playoff hopes high. They will face a Dallas Cowboys team that is pretty much the same as last year.

The Cowboy's lack of offseason moves after another disappointing season, could spell disaster.

Looking within their own division, The Cowboys will face a Philidelphia Eagles team that made a huge signing with RB Saquan Barkley and had another successful draft to help improve on the disappointing end to last season. The Washington Commanders took top quarterback prospect Jayden Daniels with the number two overall pick in the draft to add to an already stout defense.

Dak Prescott prepares to pass downfield.

Among the NFC teams that missed the playoffs and are expected to make big improvements in the new season, the Chicago Bears added the number one overall pick Caleb Williams. With weapons like D'Andre Swift, D.J. Moore, Keenen Allen, and fellow rookie, wideout Rome Adunze, many expect the Bears to be among the most improved teams in the league. Of course, Bryce Young and the Panthers received similar hype last season, and we all know how that turned out. Then again, the Bears also finished last season with a top-five defense.

The Arizona Cardinals hope to bounce back this season with a healthy Kyler Murray and top wide receiver draft pick, Marvin Harrison, Jr. The Atlanta Falcons should show major improvements with Kirk Cousins leading the way. Then, there are all the teams who did make the playoffs last season and look to keep it going.

All of this could spell trouble for the Dallas Cowboys, a team that lost players and added very little in the way of veterans. When it's all said and done, teams that actually are "all-in" when it comes to making improvements, could hit the wildcard round ready to prove they deserve to be there, while the Dallas Cowboys watch from home with the rest of us.
