Cowboys Now the Hunted in the NFC….NFL?!

ALL ABOARD!!  The Dallas Cowboy bangwagon is filling up fast.
 
If there were any doubters after giving up 37 to Philly last week a dominating effort in Green Bay once again has Cowboy fans talking the “S” word….and rightfully so.  Two impressive road wins over playoff teams and a hard fought come from behind Division win over another likely playoff team has Dallas sitting at 3-0 and in clear position to be the NFC reprensentive in the Super Bowl.  Wait!  Haven’t we heard this before?  

 

Who didn’t think after beating Green Bay in week 13 last year that Dallas wouldn’t even make the NFC Championship game?  Wade Phillips has to find a way to pace the season out so it doesn’t peak too early like it has in each of the past two seasons.  Truth be told, nobody on this team has lead his team to the Super Bowl before. Don’t forget Tony Romo has not even won a playoff game. T.O, who played great once he got there, was on the sidelines while Philly made its run to the Super Bowl. MB3, Witten, T-New, B James even Zack Thomas… not one has been on a team with such high expectations. With New England, Indy & San Diego struggling out of the gate in the AFC the concensious around the league is that Dallas is now the team to beat. With all of the talent that this year’s team has, coupled with the strength of the NFC, anything less than a visit to Tampa for the SuperBowl would be considered another disappointing season.
 

 

From Where I’m sitting:

 

  • I love MB3 but I get the bad feeling every time he touches the ball that he will get hurt.  Can we see more of Felix Jones?  8-10 carries a game maybe? I know this is crazy to say but Felix is a better natural runner than MB3 and it’s a long season Wade..lets not wear wear down our best back
  • Patrick Crayton?? Patrick, where are you? I am still not over the drop against the Giants..and you are not doing much to make me forget it
  • Jason Witten has eclipsed Jay Novacek in my mind as the best Cowboy TE I have ever seen….I’m 33
  • Nick Folk has become almost automatic…as a matter of fact I can’t remember his last miss
  • Please reserve a ticket to Hawaii for Jay Ratliff… hands down the best player on the defense so far
  • Hey Adam Jones: Don’t be afraid to run straight up field on one of these punts.  I know you want to make the big play but you can’t make it every time
  • Miles Austin??  I’m speechless…
  • Last One: Crazy statement, but would you rather play at New York in the NFC Championship or at home…before you answer consider that Romo is now 13-2 as a starter on the road and Dallas is 0-5 at home after December the past two years…
