12. Dallas Cowboys

How bout them Cowboys? Letting Murray go was not a very smart move. Signing Darren McFadden is really pushing the envelope. Jerry Jones is back to his same old crazy antics again.

Murray may have been the product of a great offensive line, but that doesn’t mean you can stick any aging  running back in the backfield and they will automatically be crowned the rushing champion. If Murray was still on the team, the Cowboys would be a bit higher in the rankings.

Tagging wide receiver Dez Bryant was smart on Jones’ part. He is the heart of the Cowboys offense. Tony Romo proved that he can win in big situations and that stereotype finally left him. Jones needs to work on adding to his defense. Believe it or not the Cowboys are in talks with Greg Hardy, which would be a huge signing for them.

If McFadden manages to be the next Murray in waiting, the Cowboys are definitely a Super Bowl contender, but for now 12 seems pretty appropriate for them.
