ARLINGTON, TX - NOVEMBER 26: Wide receiver Miles Austin of the Dallas Cowboys runs the ball against Nnamdi Asomugha of the Oakland Raiders at Cowboys Stadium on November 26, 2009 in Arlington, Texas.
On Tuesday, receiver Roy Williams suggested that the Cowboys’ offense could rival that of the 1998 Minnesota Vikings--which is quite a lofty comparison, considering those Vikings scored 556 points that season (and never less than 24 in a game) which stood as a record until the 2007 Patriots came along and scored 589 points.
"We could be like [them], just going out there and doing great things,'' Williams said. "I compare this team to the '98 Minnesota Vikings with Cris Carter, Randy Moss and Jake Reed. They would spread the ball around and hand off to Robert Smith in the backfield.''
Miles Austin, who has made a habit of being soft-spoken in the press, won’t venture such a hopeful prediction. But he still likes the current outlook for Dallas, who enters the 2010 season as a strong favorite to win the NFC East.
“I’m not going to compare us to anything,” Austin said, per ESPN Dallas. “I’m just going to say that I think we have a pretty good team. If we all work hard, then hopefully we’re going to win some games.”
