Future Still Looks Bright For Cowboys

hatcher-td.jpg

With a home game looming against the Minnesota Vikings and then a bye week, the future still burns pretty bright for the Cowboys.  This week, either T.O. or P. Crayton or both, are going to have big games and with one of the stingiest run defenses in the NFC, there is not much reason not to expect a victory over the Vikes.

Entering the bye week, by all rights Dallas should have a well-positioned 6-1 record and sitting atop their division.  After a very timely break, the NFC’s most prolific offense stands to possibly regain another weapon in WR Terry Glenn.  The defense, which is steadily improving despite injury problems, will get much healthier and get a new, fresh player with the suspension ending on DT Tank Johnson. 

So I am confident in saying the future does look very bright indeed, but after this break, they are certainly going to need everything they’ve got since they play all three division foes in straight weeks.  Heading into the traditional Thanksgiving home game, we will know exactly where this team stands, not only in the division, but as a whole.

It’s not entirely inconceivable they could be either 10-1 or 9-2 before they face another pivotal game, Green Bay on Nov. 29th.  Then starts the month of the year they have not been very good in of late, December.  If they can start the month with either 9 or 10 wins already, they will definitely control their destiny and should win the NFC East for the first time in five or so years. 

As Coach Phillips has been preaching to his team all year, all they have to do is work hard, get better each week and they will be where they want to be come the end of the year.

    Dave,

    You sure sound pretty positive. If Cowboys can hang in there and continue to get better, there is no reason not to be. But I would still like to see how Romo does going forward. Thinking about it more, I guess his father’s condition might have something to do with him not being as aggressive last Sunday. But I think he still needs to show us that he can continue to perform and not be disheartened by random bad performances. I agree that the arrival of both Glenn and Tank in the lineup could only help us. I think the division games would be crucial, to keep the confidence level up for the team. Let’s see how this works out!
