Cowboys with One More Thing To Prove

The Cowboys have been stellar when the team is facing criticism. When Tony Dungy said the Cowboys had no chance against the Saints, they used that to hand the Saints their first loss of the season. When everyone reminded the Cowboys how badly they were beaten last December by the Eagles, the very team they will have to face for a third time this season, they used that and swept the Eagles in the regular season, including a season finale crushing last week.

This Cowboys team seems to be unstoppable when the experts are betting against them. Now, what happens when the experts start believing what a lot of fans have been saying all along, that this Cowboys team is actually a pretty damn good team?

This week against the Eagles, the Cowboys can’t afford to get a big head. This is still the same Eagles team that beat the Cowboys 44-6 last year. They still have the weapons on their team to beat the Cowboys deep if the front doesn’t provide the necessary pass rush to throw McNabb of his rhythm. The Cowboys have proven that they can play when they need to, now it is time for them to prove they can win a playoff game.

The talk this week has been that the Cowboys are the hottest NFC team going into the playoffs, but if we look at how long it’s been since their last win in the playoffs, they are the coldest team in the playoffs for well over a decade now. This Cowboys team can change all of that this year, and once and for all silence the critics. However, they can’t allow the few bandwagon jumpers to give them a big head or past failures will continue to haunt them along with a new one.

Question of the Day

Everyone is talking about how the Eagles didn’t look themselves this past week against the Cowboys, and ultimately as it has been for many other Cowboys win, it’s been about where the Eagles messed up and not where the Cowboys did good. Just curious but hasn’t anyone noticed that the Cowboys have allowed fewer points than any other team in the NFC this season? In fact only the Jets have allowed fewer with 236 than the Cowboys’ 250 points allowed. There are 16 games in a season, surely the Cowboys did something right in a few of those games to allow so few points to be scored.
