Tony Pollard

Tony Pollard is the nitro of the Dallas Cowboy’s machine. His speed and explosiveness is apparent every time he touches the football.

Since Elliott is no longer on the roster, the Cowboys will have to rely heavily on Pollard, who takes the offense to a higher level when he’s fully utilized.

A career-defining year in 2023 is what the Dallas Cowboys require from him.

Micah ParsonsMicah Parsons is the rarest of unicorns. Without question he is the best player on the roster. While Tank Lawrence is the Odysseus of the defense. Micah Parson is the Achilles of the defense.

Achilles was considered a the greatest hero in the Greek army during the Trojan War. It was prophesied that the Greeks could not win the Trojan War without him.

The Dallas Cowboys’ pass rush burns hot when Parsons is leading the charge. A elite game wrecker and play-maker.

Dak Prescott

Regardless of what anyone says. There is no player more important than Dak Prescott on the roster.

The key to the Cowboys making a Super Bowl run this season is Prescott playing his best ball while maintaining his health. Dallas doesn’t require him to throw for 4200 yards and 32 touchdowns.

Prescott is required to function as a commander on the battlefield. He’s the go-to person for taking charge during crisis situations and leading his team to the endzone.

He cannot contribute to the problem on the field. He doesn’t necessarily have to be the solution, just a part of it.. There’s no player more significant than the quarterback.

Next. Tyron Smith may not be a top-5 linemen anymore. dark

Prescott’s leadership will determine how far the Dallas Cowboys go to accomplishing their goals in 2023.

That’s my Dallas Cowboys’ Dirty Dozen.
