The biggest question mark on offense for the Cowboys is... the offensive line?

Throughout this offseason, Cowboys fans, writers, and bloggers have talked about how a backup QB is a need for America’s Team. We are set with what looks to be a new franchise quarterback in the form of Dak Prescott, but are we content with Kellen Moore backing him up? A backup QB is not a player who will take your team to the Super Bowl if the starter is injured. We forget this sometimes. Guys like Colin Kaepernick being available gets our attention. Backup quarterbacks study the game, know all the Xs and Os. That’s their job. They help starting quarterbacks by telling them what the...
