The 2020 NFL season has arrived, which was lifted plenty of optimism around the league. The Dallas Cowboys are among those feeling that positive buzz with the team holding tremendous expectations with strong Super Bowl aspirations. Star running back Ezekiel Elliott has taken that chatter up another notch after what he just stated.
Buzz building around the Cowboys
Although the Cowboys’ optimism has been taken with a grain of salt over the years, there is a different vibe in 2020.
The franchise has undergone much change that began with finally moving on from head coach Jason Garrett. The team has moved in an entirely new direction with former longtime Green Bay Packers head coach Mike McCarthy. That alone has put forth a refreshing feel within the organization.
Dallas also had a busy offseason that saw them add proven veterans to the mix to help provide additional stability. All that has created a strong sense of excitement from the players to not only get back into the playoffs but do much more than that.
It has also led star running back Ezekiel Elliott to make a strong proclamation about his team ahead of the 2020 season.
Ezekiel Elliott sees limitless potential for the Cowboys
There has been plenty of optimism around the Cowboys after another busy offseason adding to their roster.
Many players are highly encouraged by their prospects for the 2020 season to become a special campaign in Dallas. Among those is Pro Bowl running back Ezekiel Elliott, who voiced on Wednesday that he believes that the team’s potential is limitless.
“I think the sky’s the limit. If you look from top to bottom at every position, we have great guys more than anything. A great group of guys. We are going to be pretty good this.
Elliott isn’t alone as many have pegged the Cowboys as a possible Super Bowl contender. Their roster has proven and young talent on both sides of the ball. Elliott has already voiced this offseason that he believes he’s playing on his most talented team since entering the NFL in 2016.
It places some significant expectations ahead of the franchise, in which the star running back’s comments show that the team is ready to fulfill that promise.
2020 season expectations
The Cowboys are more than motivated to shake off the disappointment of the 2019 season that featured letting a playoff berth and an NFC East division title slip through their grasp.
Dallas has added to their offense with rookie wide receiver CeeDee Lamb. It presents the team the chance to potentially possess three wideouts that garner more than 1,000 receiving yards. Meanwhile, Ezekiel Elliott continues to handle their running game, which should see him put forth another strong campaign.
Dak Prescott is coming off his best statistical year, while he has the motivation to prove he’s worth a lucrative extension next offseason. The Cowboys may have lost All-Pro center Travis Frederick to retirement, but they still have some of the game’s best offensive linemen.
Their defense has also added some promising pass rushers with Everson Griffen and Alden Smith to pair alongside DeMarcus Lawrence. Meanwhile, the Cowboys possess two of the game’s best young linebackers in Jaylon Smith and Leighton Vander Esch. The pieces are in place for Dallas to make that next leap forward toward competing for a Super Bowl in 2020.
