Expectations for the Dallas Cowboys

Q: Adam, which winless team do you think has the best chance to turn it around this season? -- Jackson (Texas)

A: Well, Jackson, my only three choices are the Jaguars, Steelers and Giants. And I’m not taking the Jaguars, that’s for sure. So we’re down to the Steelers and Giants. I like the Steelers' roster more, especially with the return of rookie running back Le’Veon Bell, but I like the Giants’ chances in their division even though they have been so dismal in so many areas so far. It doesn’t look like anyone is going to run away with the NFC East, and each team has major question marks going forward. If Steelers defensive coordinator Dick LeBeau can get his unit turned around, I’ll say Pittsburgh; if not, give me the Giants.

Q: Adam, what do you think are reasonable expectations for my Dallas Cowboys this season? Are they the NFC East favorites right now? -- Tyrone (Oklahoma)
