5 Reasons why Dallas will win (Part 1 of 2)


I will be releasing my third edition of the BEARS Blitz to all of you Bears fans and NFL fanatics later this week (I know you have been waiting to hear another entertaining episode), but for right now here’s the 5 reason Dallas will win this showdown Sunday Nite at Chicago in Soldier Field.  This series will also be heard in a segment of Bears Blitz in a more exclusive version, so read this message and find out why Dallas will win the NFC match-up, between these two powerhouses.  This game will be atop of your list of what to watch this weekend and I’m going to inform why the Cowboys will be victorious and why these top reasons will determine the outcome.

1.  Pass Rush/Blitz The 3-4 defense will give Rex lots of fits and different/varying looks that will absolutely keep the dismal signal caller off-balanced, not letting him get into a comfortable, passing rhythm (like it matters…), like in games past going up against tough, disguising 3-4 schemes/systems, he has not been successful at all (ex. Miami, New England, and San Diego), and Dallas will figure to do the same, having him under pressure and duress all game long, so you have to figure this to be the main reason Dallas will win the game.   All-Pro Linebacker and sack artist DeMarcus Ware (beast) will a key factor in this game and also watch out for speed pass rushing rookie DE Anthony Spencer (Purdue) to make some noise in getting to #8.  I expect Dallas to keep the Bears offense in the palm of their hand if they cannot rattle and shake Rex early and often.  Look for them to dictate the game on D with their tremendous pass rush/blitzes, determining what the Bears offense will/cannot do if they can bring the same kind/type of heat I think they forcefully will come with and what they’re usually accustomed to – dishing out.

2.  3rd Down Passing Attack – If Dallas can control the clock and covert vital three down plays, watch for them to roll and win by a lot.  Marion Barber is a phenomenal, strong short-yardage and red zone runner inside the harsh marks and between the tackles.  Julius Jones (Thanksgiving ’04) has had past success against this Bears defense and TE Jason Witten will stretch the field and be a big target down the middle of the field like Gates was for S.D. against Chicago.  Brian Urlacher will need to watch out for play-fakes and trick the Dallas offense will surely use.  If Dallas keeps the Bear defense on the field for awhile, getting ’em tired because the offense goes 3 & out the possession before, this game could get ugly early.  Look for Dallas to pass, pass, and pass some more, and then go to the run game because of a stout defense Chicago brings to the table every week.  Key Match-up:  Charles Tillman on Terrell Owens and Jason Witten vs. Adam Archuleta.  Dallas will expose some flaws they see when going up against this formidable, vaunted defense they will see Sunday.  A big reason why they will win this game has to be the 3rd down success rate for the ‘boys, this will tell a whole in this match-up, as you will see Dallas try to be like Indy and run draw plays (vs. Bears nickel package) to account for and neutralize the defensive front’s speed and quickness in getting/busting through towards the backfield in a hurry.  Tony Romo’s production will be related to his play on third downs and he should have the time to find his receivers, who are very talented, and should be a deciding factor in Sunday’s game.  Dallas’ array of offensive weapons may be too much to keep an eye on at all times, for Bob Babich’s aggressive, attacking-style defense.

3.  Opportunistic, Make ’em Pay Offense –  If Dallas’ striking defense forces turnovers and creates opportunities for the ‘boys potent offensive attack, it will be money in the bank and game over for the Windy City Monsters.  This team thrives off it’s defense and if the offense gets good field position it will put the Bears defense in a very, tough position.  Dallas usually puts it into the end zone when down close and Romo is an accurate passer who does not throw many picks.  Owens and Witten are two of the best in the game as targets inside the 20 and Barber has scored almost a touchdown a game since getting his time increased as the third-down and goal-line back.  I see an offense that may get the better of a top defense and this may open up your eyes because it has not happened in awhile.  So in essence, the opportunistic offense will be just another reason and ingredient added to the mix of a successful recipe, that has Dallas in-line for a big win, as this team is the rising fast, reaching it’s full potential, already into mid-season form.

4.  QB Advatange – Tony Romo is everything Rex Grossman is not, as of right now, and everything #8 wants to be, trying to be an elite QB (status is close, turning the corner).  Romo, other than that Seattle bluff/mistake in the Playoffs, has been spectacular and impressive, this, to someone who has not thought too highly of him in the past.  Looking back, watching him this season, and researching the stats, Romo is one of the better QB’s in the entire league.  He is close to being Top-5 material and is in contention for an MVP this season if he keeps it up.  I am a believer in Romo and I have no faith whatsoever in #8.  This right here is more than enough to think Dallas will come out on top, as you all know, the QB position is the most important in the NFL.  Romo does so much for his offense and is usually mistake-free while Rex, on the other hand, is mistake-prone, a vast difference between to very opposite players, at different levels, at different stages in their careers, as the respective QB’s for their teams, taking snaps under center this Sunday Nite – while one is cheered on, relied on heavily, and admired, the other is booed, mocked, not counted on for, and criticized, being blasted throughout the media for each performance.  #8 still has much to prove, though Romo, his counterpart, is putting to work the finishing touches to his game, cementing himself as one of the best QB’s, leaving no comparison here, so look no further than the QB advantage for Dallas, being the obvious, to while they win this game.

5. Momentum (coming into the battle) –  Make no mistake, Dallas is on a roll, while Chicago is sliding down further and further because of their inept and miserable offense.  With the ‘boys, everything is clicking two weeks into the season (though it can change subtly) and their defense is still doing a good enough job, even without top CB Terence Newman (questionable).  You have to really take into a large amount of consideration that both teams will continue to play the way they’re playing.  I don’t see any huge turnaround (Chicago) or decline (Dallas) in one game, though being evenly matched, the ‘boys are on fire and their offense is clearly superior to that of the Bears.  I expect Dallas to ride on their momentum/high into Soldier Field, continuing their winning ways, by taking on a battle-ready and tested Bears team head-on, right from the start, from kickoff to the end, from the first play of the1st quarter to the final/waning moments of the 4th,  and show why they’re the best in the class of the NFC.  Look for Dallas to carry over the momentum going for them and to cash in on aplenty, riding at full speed, making their way into Chicago with only one goal and reason in mind:  a decisive and complete win over the NFC Champion Bears, single-handedly beating them without any doubt in their minds, pulling away and moving on to lead the conference towards possibly home-field advantage, giving themselves a clear advantange and edge (early) over all who may challenge them in the NFC.
