Cowboys Must Play With Sense of Urgency Against Philadelphia

It's a little hard to believe with the way the season has gone so far, but they still have a shot at making the . They will definitely need to make some changes from here on out, but it's actually doable. One thing I think they absolutely have to change is their sense of urgency moving forward.

In the era, the Dallas Cowboys haven't been a “throw caution to the wind” kind of team. They're more methodical with their and rarely stray from it. It's one of the reasons why their is so predictable, but that can't be the case any longer in 2018.

For the Dallas Cowboys to have any shot at the playoffs they are going to have to win the division. I don't think their record at the end of the season will be good enough for a wildcard spot, so winning the division is probably their only chance of getting in. Luckily for them, the East is still wide open.

Right now, the Cowboys are 1-1 in the NFC East division before heading on the road this week to take on the . Coming off their and having home-field advantage certainly favors the Eagles in this contest, but I still believe this is a winnable game for the Cowboys if they come out and play the way they are capable of.

That brings me back to playing with a sense of urgency. Dallas really can't afford to lose any more games, especially within the division. No more with the predictable BS offense we've seen these past few seasons. They are going to have to take some shots down the field and maybe even add a few more gadget plays in the mix.

I know I'm asking a lot from a Cowboys staff who has shown they are reluctant to make many changes on the fly, but there's no better time than now. They have probably heard the scuttlebutt and know their jobs are likely on the line if they can't turn this team around. It's just the nature of the business.

Jason Garrett and company have to go into this matchup against the Eagles with the mindset of we have to “risk it to win the biscuit”. They lose this game and their chances of making the playoffs is all but over, but a win at least keeps them in contention.

The entire may depend on whether or not the Dallas Cowboys can beat the Philadelphia Eagles this week. Winning at least gives them a chance to stay in the thick of things, but a loss likely means their season is over.

Cross your fingers, wish upon your lucky star, or do whatever voodoo you do to help the Cowboys defeat the champions. It may be their only hope…

Do you think the Dallas Cowboys will play with a sense of urgency?

Good article! I want to see the offense that put up 40 points against the Jaguars. That offense disappeared after Dak took a big hit and Dallas has been losing with their bubble wrapped QB. Let’s see the 2016 team offense again with Dak running.

Hmmm. Under the same theme (“Cowboys must”) I would like to add that they MUST fire their HC and OC, they must build a D line not with prospects and cast off’s but bonafide solid draft picks (no Taco Charltons) They must actually use their TEs, they must figure out their O line issues, they must… Aw, why bother. 24 years and counting…


Gonna get creamed please jerry Fire garrett already been watching him fail since he was oc 11 long years he’s been a loser now he’s a head coach loser along with linihan losers losers losers . Jerry is a Fool . Period

There is no way with this Linehan offense and Garrett led team that they are beating philly. I have had faith for the past 8 years he’s been coach but I’m done now. They should be fired and replaced. Way too much talent and good players for this team to be 3-5. Garrett has proved nothing but that he is a 8-8 coach at best. He is not getting us to a championship and Linehan calls the same damn plays every week. You have cooper dak zeke Beasley hurns and Gallup and you don’t know how to use them and u have one of the worse ranked offenses in the league. HOW? Philly will win this game 34-13. They will stop zeke and dak will once again turn the ball over a couple times. Sorry but time for a new coach and coordinator. We have played this game long enough you are starting to lose fans because of this stupid coach

Michael Barthel

I mean look at his stupid challenges week in and week out if that doesn’t say I don’t know what the hell im doing then nothing does. That’s why 10 of our players came out and said we are the worse coached team in the nfl. I would bet anything that if Dallas got a offensive minded coach and he brings in his own coordinator mixed with kris Richard on defense this team would be the chiefs with a better defense! Time for a change and we are tired of waiting cuz it’s not getting better it’s getting worse. 8-8 8-8 8-8 4-12 9-7 12-4 13-3 3-5 right now with only 1 playoff game won. That’s sad
