Dallas Cowboys are under new leadership this year in the form of veteran NFL coach Mike McCarthy. He previously served as head coach for Aaron Rodgers at Green Bay Packers for the last decade. Along with the enigmatic Dak Prescott and talented Ezekiel Elliott, McCarthy has some fine young talent for him to rely upon.
The wideout department, in particular, is tipped to have a massive season in 2020. Amari Cooper and Michael Gallup will benefit from the arrival of young rookie CeeDee Lamb. This is the same sentiment that team owner Jerry Jones reiterated in an interview with Dallas News earlier this week.
In a recent interview with Cowboys boss Jerry Jones, the owner spoke about the new additions to the team roster. CeeDee Lamb, Trevon Diggs, and others have turned the Dallas-based franchise into a playoff team for sure.
He said, “I do see a talented group of players here. I see the right mix. The younger players have some experience. We’ve added some real talent with the draft and, frankly, in the offseason. So I think that is going to actually be as good as I can remember when we brought talent on the field.”
“Everybody’s got the mentality, everybody’s proud to be here. We’re going to be prepared. We know that we didn’t get the spring with a lot of these guys to help them get better acclimated to the new staff and coach [Mike] McCarthy. We know we didn’t get that, but nobody else did either,” Jones told Dallas News.
The Cowboys ended their 2019 season with an 8-8 record and finished second in the NFC East Division. They kick-off their 2020 NFL season with an opening game against Atlanta Falcons on September 20, 2020. New coach Mike McCarthy will look to get off to a winning start as he starts his career in Dallas.
