Dallas-Denver: Cowboys 53-Man Roster Projection
Yes, thanks for asking, I am indeed ready for some football. And tonight we'll all get a smidge, in the form of Cowboys-Broncos in Arlington at 7:30.
Jason Garrett said he plans to play his starters a series, or about 8 to 12 plays. Same with the Broncos and their new coach John Fox. In other words, get ready for a lot of Stephen McGee vs. Tim Tebow.
I'll supply your
highly anticapted annoying Top 10 Observer-ations after the game. But beforehand -- better early than never -- let's look at what the Cowboys' final roster might look like come September 11:
QUARTERBACK -- Tony Romo/ Jon Kitna/ Stephen McGee.
