I have little faith in Dak, less in Linehan and even less in Garrett. That said, if the Cowboys win any playoff games, it'll start and finish with defense which has easily been the strength of this team.
Go Cowboys!

The defense has actually been a liability since the saints game. That is more concerning to me.

Cowboys need to implement the New Orleans game plan on defense. Excellent breakdown here on why.

Dad became a fan as a kid shortly after they became an nfl team in ‘60. The Cowboys might have been the first NFL team in the “south”, certainly amongst the first. Not sure why he chose them over others, but that regionality might’ve been part of it. I was born in ‘73 and he raised me to be a fan. Supporting the Razorbacks and Cowboys has been amongst our bonds.

My dad moved from Arkansas to Texas.  I have been a Razorbacks and Cowboys fan from the time I was old enough to know what sports are.  That lasted for almost 50 years.

I figure half a century of loyalty is all I owe to any sports team.  I can't stand Jerry Jones.  It was bad enough that he transformed a Dallas franchise that was dominant for 30 years into a mediocre team that wins a playoff game once a decade, he then had to mess with my Razorbacks, too. 

On top of Jerry overrating his own football expertise instead of bringing in and relying on people who actually know what they are doing I have also been disgusted with him from a personal and character standpoint.  The way he handled Romo, as in refusing to release him when he decided to move on at quarterback (which was perfectly okay even if ill advised at the time) is just one example. 

I'm done as long as he's running the show.  I don't support people I despise no matter what logo is on their team's helmet.

The franchise that dominated for 30 years was pre-salary cap. That changed everything. But there are too many unrealistic fans out there that can objectively see that.

While it hasn’t translated into Super Bowls, the cowboys are by no means a franchise in disarray (as is the narrative by a lot people). In fact, they’ve drafted pretty darn well the last 5-8 years or so. They have the 10th best record in the league over the last 9 years. Maybe further back (I didn’t take the time to find that stat). It’s not the good ole days of the 70s and early 90s but the nfl is entirely different now.

Because cowboys were championship team with a Arkansas graduate and the owner is a  Arkansas graduate.  So pretty much if Arkansas had the population that Texas has we would probably have the Cowboys here in Arkansas.

Been following the Cowboys since 1971, the season they ended whipping Miami in the SB. I was hooked, still am, always will be I reckon. I try to chill, not care so much, but I still find myself hollering like a kid sometimes like last Sunday after Beasley caught that td and again after the Giants 4th down incompletion.
And....I'll be nervous Saturday hoping like heck for a win. What can I say but Go Cowboys!!!

I was a Cowboys fan before Lance Alworth came over from the Chargers, back in the Don Meredith and Don Perkins days.  It had nothing to do with Arkansas ties.  The Cowboys were a budding dynasty, nearly knocking off Lombardi's Packers in games that could have put them in the first two Super Bowls.

I remember as a youngster, living in Fresno, when they performed at halftime of a home football game.  It was pouring rain, but they still performed.

I don't hate everything about the state of Texas. I hate University of texass and their arrogant, stuck up, cocky fans... Many of whom have been in full stupid mode since they beat Georgia.

Their fans are perfect examples of what an arrogant bastard is. When their fans go openly gloating over Arkansas getting beat by north Texas, and calling the Hogs stupid idiots Arkansas uneducated children because Arkansas got fooled by the fake fair catch in that game and ran it back for a TD, yeah, I get an attitude towards their fans.

The rest of the state are mostly good, hardworking, laid back people. Some of which are members of my family. But the UT fans.... I hope Herman gets an NFL job or something. Those goobers need to be brought back down to the bowels of the slime pit they crawled out of. And the Dallas cowboys are owned by an Arkansas Razorback. They were my favorite team in pro sports from the day I was old enough to be a fan of a team. I'm every bit as much a cowboys fan as I am a Razorback fan. That will never change.

Most home-grown Texans don't claim Dallas as part of Texas anyway.

Good performance yesterday, although against a 5-11 team that has found a way to lose all year (see failure to close out the game with second and inches within the last three minutes and ball on the Cowboys 10 yard line).

This will be another one and done year.  The Seahawks will come into Jerry World as a wild card and bounce Dallas. They aren't the Giants, they aren't the Bucs, and they aren't the Redskins.  No team contending for a playoff spot has had an easier schedule than the Cowboys.

That's the way I see it.

Lol. Glad you saw it wrong

Surprising stat!  He seems to not be very accurate but he is good at avoiding the rush so maybe that helps him. 

As a Rams fan growing up I hated Cowboys because they beat the Rams in the playoffs in the 70's many times.  Same with the Vikings and Fran Tarkenton.  That guy drove me nuts scrambling around.
