• Is this the year the Cowboys host and win the Super Bowl?

    Tony Romo, Wade Phillips, and the Cowboys took a huge step last year winning a playoff game. With the addition of Dez Bryant to an offense that is now without Flozell Adams (Doug Free now the man), will the Cowboys offense be able to keep pace with what appears to be one of the league's best defenses. The Eagles are in transition, the Giants defense has a lot to prove, and the Redskins are the NFL's version of Home Make-over....who knows. Cowboys a lock? You haven't followed the NFL much have you? Teams moving from last to first are a common occurrence. Mike Shanahan and Donovan McNabb teamed with a solid defense could be the story of the 2011 campaign. Looking for chalk, it's the Cowboys. Looking for longshots, it's the Redskins.

      The Cowboys are interesting this year.

      They have talent, and they are in a tough division.

      I feel that the biggest hurdle for the Cowboys, year in and year out, is meeting expectations.

      Texas loves its football, and they went through the 90s expecting to compete for and win the Super Bowl.

      How will Romo, Miles Austin, and Barber/Jones perform this season?

      Will Dez Bryant turn into a play maker?

      Will the Defense continue to put pressure to the QB like last year?



      I can't wait to see how this division plays out!!!

      That division seems more up for grabs this year than usual. With the ever unpredictable NFC, you never know. My gut says no, but I would pick them up depending on the odds (you know, if gambling were legal).

      I think the NFC is wide open, and not for 10 teams, but that the top 4 teams could win the super bowl this year (Packers, Vikings, Saints, Cowboys to me). I think the big question marks are the defense, not that they are bad, but they just have to be solid because I don't think the offense is a question mark...second thing is Jerry Jones maintaining the circus along with himself. Lastly, Tony Romo needs to be clutch and get over the hump.

      As far as we know he may be there. As to whether he is or not, only time will tell. But I do think he is pretty close.

      It's almost the end of January and I haven't been fired once this year, so I thought I'd dredge up the first article in our history (dated 5-25-10). Not only does this article pre-date FP, it pre-dates FPL, I think we were still fbpros.com.

      It's funny looking back how everyone (including me) was picking the Cowboys to at least do some damage in the playoffs. The Alex Barron disgraced humanity and it all went down hill.

      These old, prediction-themed threads get dredged up, and I am happy when I find that I did not post in them. Because when I did post predictions, they generally turned out to be idiotic.

      I came to terms with my team's failure when we were 1-5 without a quarterback. I've made my peace with it.

      Thats how this year went. Who saw Favre having the statisticaly best year to a losing season? I know I didnt see it coming down to the Bears and Packers taking the NFC North and NFC. The Cowboys are reason as to why we play the games on the feild not on paper. Who knows, next year (with no lock out) Cowboys may come back and show the NFL that you cant count them out.
