4. Is RB Felix Jones the next star of the NFL?
SM – Before the preseason, I would have said no. The main reason is that, since his various injuries, I haven’t seen the quickness and speed he showed in his rookie season. But after this preseason, I have to say yes. Jones showed surprising agility, quickness, and a hard nose running style I haven’t seen from him before. If he can stay healthy, and our offensive line opens some holes, Jones can be huge for us this year.
5. Who is a player the Jets defense needs to worry about?
SM – I think there’s two: Felix Jones and Jason Witten. Jones, for all the reasons previously mentioned and the Jets defensive line issues. But Witten is arguably the best overall tight end in the NFL. He has a knack for finding open space and Romo trusts him completely. While Dez Bryant and Miles Austin are being covered by your outstanding secondary, Witten will be killing it underneath.
6. Who is a player the Cowboys are worried about on the Jets?
SM – Mark Sanchez. The key to our new defensive scheme is creating pressure on the quarterback and confusing him with different looks. If Sanchez can play through that, and be consistent, then it will be a long night for our secondary.
