I’ve been a Dallas Fan literally since I could watch and understand football. I really appreciate and enjoy reading you’re articles when they are posted. I live in Tennessee and seriously can’t wait for our Boyz to come to Nashville and get the job done agnist the Titans. Don’t get me wrong as long as they aren’t playing us hey hope they have a great game and season…. That is until and eventually play us in the Super Bowl. The last couple years I honestly thought it was a realistic possibility of happening and I was really looking forward to it happening, but of course dumb s#i* happened and we both were completely caught off guard and early exit from the playoffs. Anyway please keep doing what you do and again I appreciate you’re up to date info on our Cowboys.

Each year I bet the Over/Under for Cowboys wins. Under Smiling Dopey Opie I was 8-2, and so far 2-0 under McCarthy. The first place schedule is brutal. Bucs, Rams and Bengals is a Murderers Row. We have too many bad teams at home with too many harder teams on the road. Losing Cooper and Collins due to Stephen’s gross negligence in negotiating contracts probably dooms us but Hope Springs Eternal so I’ll be there no matter what.

Unless we get better offensive coaching and targeting specific defensive weaknesses and calling more plays to our top playmakers we’ll be 9/8 or 10/7. Then one and done in playoffs…again.


They could win every one of those games, but it won’t mean shit if they fail in the post season.
