The offseason doesn’t discriminate. Old or young, rich or poor, smart or dumb, the long months between the Super Bowl and Week 1 takes a toll on everybody. It got to PhillyVoice’s Jimmy Kempski.

Kempski wrote an article Friday titled: ‘10 reasons the Cowboys will be a dumpster fire this season.’ He didn’t get very far.

In his second paragraph he puts in a disclaimer.

“Disclaimer: OK, so the Cowboys aren’t going to be a “dumpster fire” this season unless Tony Romo gets hurt, but they are far from the juggarnaut many are making them out to be,” Kempski wrote.

Kempski’s reasons: First, the offensive line is overrated. He points out the Cowboys gave up a sack on 7.07 percent pass plays, which ranks 21st in the league. Kempski says the Cowboys’ offensive line is good, but not going to be the best ever. He also points to the Cowboys’ loss of DeMarco Murray, their lack of pass rush, Sean Lee’s injuries, Romo’s back surgeries, Brandon Weeden, the Cowboys’ schedule, Jason Witten’s age, the Cowboys overpaying their cornerbacks for very little production, and the defense not being very good.

One could argue the Cowboys addressed the defensive problems by spending almost an entire draft on that side of the ball, plus adding a few signings. One could also argue about how good the Cowboys’ defense will really need to be when it faces Sam Bradford (or Mark Sanchez or Tim Tebow) in Week 2.

But that’s for those that argue about that stuff.
