The Dallas Cowboys truly loaded up this offseason while also retaining their own free agents. Let’s make some bold predictions for the team heading in 2023. I am a huge fan of the Cowboys’ offense, specifically two of their moves.
I loved their trade for Stephon Gilmore and Brandin Cooks, giving up virtually nothing for two very good players. Dak Prescott needs to bounce back, as we can probably safely say the defense will still be elite.
If Dak can limit the interceptions, this Dallas Cowboys’ team can make a deep, deep playoff run.
Bold predictions for the Dallas Cowboys in the 2023 season
Dak Prescott finishes top 3 in MVP voting in 2023
Adding a quality wide receiver in Brandin Cooks, coupled with the return of a strong offensive line is going to be a huge boost to Dak Prescott, who shockingly threw 15 interceptions in 2022. In 2023, he’ll bounce back in a big way, throw for at least 35 touchdowns and finish top three in MVP voting.
The trio of CeeDee Lamb, Brandin Cooks, and Michael Gallup will be a handful for opposing defenses to deal with. Tony Pollard is also going to get a huge workload, which is going to add a nice boost to the offense, as if it needed one anyway.
Dallas plays in the NFC Championship Game
Will this be the year that the Dallas Cowboys makes it to the NFC Championship Game? I think so. Between roster and coaching, I’m not sure there’s a more complete team in the NFC. Perhaps they’ll finally be able to get over the hump.
I mean, my gosh, what more can they do to the roster and coaching staff to make the team better? They have truly exhausted most avenues to improve the team. Something has to break at some point, right?
I think they’ll have a top seven scoring offense and defense and will scratch and claw their way to a berth in the title game in 2023.
Dallas has a trio of 1,000 yard receivers
All of CeeDee Lamb, Brandin Cooks, and Michael Gallup each have a 1,000 yard season on their resume. Those three pass catchers are going to get nearly all of the work in the receiving game in 2023, especially since their stud tight end, Dalton Schultz, left for the Houston Texans.
Having a trio of 1,000 yard pass catchers has only happened five times in the history of the NFL, most recently in 2008. I think if there’s any team that can do this, it’s the Cowboys. I could also argue that the Cincinnati Bengals have the potential for this, but the Cowboys will end up actually doing it.
