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.

RUNNING BACK -- Felix Jones/ DeMarco Murray/ Tashard Choice/ Lonyae Miller/ Shaun Chapas

OFFENSIVE LINE -- Doug Free/ David Arkin/ Andre Gurode/ Kyle Kosier/ Tyron Smith/ Sam Young/ Phil Costa/ Bill Nagy

TIGHT END -- Jason Witten/ Martellus Bennett/ John Phillips

RECEIVER -- Miles Austin/ Dez Bryant/ Kevin Ogletree/ Dwayne Harris/ Jesse Holley

KICKER -- David Buehler

LONG-SNAPPER -- L.P. Ladouceur

PUNTER -- Mat McBriar

DEFENSIVE LINE -- Marcus Spears/ Jay Ratliff/ Kenyon Coleman/ Josh Brent/ Jason Hatcher/ Sean Lissemore

CORNERBACK -- Terence Newman/ Mike Jenkins/ Orlando Scandrick/ Alan Ball/ Bryan McCann/ Josh Thomas

SAFETY -- Abe Elam/ Gerald Sensabaugh/ Barry Church/ Awasi Owusu-Ansah
