The hype around the Dallas Cowboys is again rising due to the plethora of offensive talent. The Cowboys sit stacked on that side of the ball with a chance to possess one of the league’s best units. As the 2021 season moves closer, star wide receiver Amari Cooper voiced what he believes will keep the team on the right track.
Cowboys are eyeing a bounce-back 2021 season
After experiencing a disappointing first campaign under head coach Mike McCarthy, the Cowboys hope to turn the page in 2021.
Dallas limped through last season, marred by injuries to prominent players that prevented any serious playoff bid. This offseason, the team is moving in the right direction, especially with Dak Prescott back in the mix after ankle surgery.
It’s built toward high expectations for the Cowboys to contend for not only the NFC East title but also make a deep playoff run. Dallas has embraced the chatter voicing much optimism toward what lies ahead in 2021.
As the upcoming campaign inches closer, Cooper believes he knows what will keep the Cowboys’ plethora of offensive weapons happy.
Amari Cooper’s 1-word response perfectly nailed the Cowboys’ mindset next season
The Cowboys are heading into another year with plenty of optimism directed toward the offensive potential.
With Prescott back under center, it’s taken the hype up another notch, especially with the Pro Bowl quarterback voicing he believes Dallas can possess the league’s best offense. All that places a significant onus on his shoulders to spread the ball around in the passing game.
It may be many mouths to feed offensively, but Amari Cooper believes there is one remedy to keeping everyone happy.

The Cowboys have three wide receivers that can record more than 1,000 receiving yards in 2021. It was a prominent discussion last offseason after the team selected CeeDee Lamb in the first round.
Cooper continues to be one of the league’s most productive wide receivers, as he’s notched north of 1,000 receiving yards in five out of his first six seasons. It includes reaching that mark in his first two full seasons with the Cowboys, highlighted by a career-best 1,189 yards in 2019.
Meanwhile, Michael Gallup is two years removed from posting 1,107 receiving yards and notched 843 yards in 2020. Lamb is on the rise and expected only to top his impressive rookie campaign where he posted 935 receiving yards on 75 catches. It all puts a tremendous amount of pressure on Prescott, but if the Cowboys are winning games, it’s hard to imagine any conflict arising.
Health will play a pivotal factor in 2021
For as much hype building around the Cowboys, it will come down to the team’s health.
It’s what derailed Dallas’ chances of securing a playoff berth last season. The Cowboys lost Prescott after five games due to a compound ankle fracture along with offensive linemen Tyron Smith and La’el Collins.
The promising potential is there, but it’s a matter of remaining healthy throughout the season. The Cowboys hold the pieces in place to possess one of the league’s top offenses. At the same time, the defense should experience notable improvement after an impressive 2021 draft class, coupled with bringing aboard Dan Quinn as the defensive coordinator.
The opportunity is ahead for Dallas to string together a special 2021 season leading to a deep playoff push. Time will tell if the Cowboys can finally meet the hype.
