ENEMY lines WHAT A RIVAL COACH SAYS

"I DON'T EXPECT this offense to look much different now that Jason Garrett has gone from offensive coordinator to head coach. He's still going to be calling the plays.

Tony Romo is a relationship QB, meaning he prefers throwing to guys with whom he has a certain comfort level. There have been times when we have prepared to play Romo and thought that he was one of the top QBs in the league. He's streaky, and as a defense you'd like to catch him on the downswing of a streak.

Romo seems recovered from the broken collarbone that kept him out of 10 games last year, but if backup Jon Kitna has to play again, don't expect the Cowboys to stretch the field as they normally do.

In the receiving corps Dez Bryant is on the rise and will be a force to contend with for years to come. Miles Austin's production slipped a bit last year, and you have to figure he'll lose even more production to Bryant.

You'll get a lot of production from Jason Witten. He's one of the top handful of tight ends in the league, he's a huge red zone target for them and he plays every game.

It'll be hard for any of the running backs to become dominant. Felix Jones has the ability to be a difference maker, and I believe the coaches are going to try to give him every opportunity, but he has shown that he has to share the load a little. With Marion Barber now gone, I think Tashard Choice is the back who benefits. Jones is going to be the guy, but Choice will get called upon to get the tough yards.

Rookie DeMarco Murray is mainly going to provide depth and possibly contribute a little bit on third down."
