Cowboys Back in the Postseason Says Banks

Never fear Cowboys fans, your Cowboys are headed back to the postseason in 2009. That’s at least the opinion of SI.com writer Don Banks, who has thrown it out there that the Cowboys are headed for…(gulp!) the playoffs!

Yes, Banks wrote recently that the Cowboys will make it to the dance, somewhat based on three very good reasons, which you can check out below:


• Dallas
— There are no two ways around it: The Cowboys underachieved mightily in 2008 and became a dysfunctional team in the locker room in the second half of last season. But only one of Dallas’ losses came against a losing team, and that was at St. Louis in its first game without injured starting quarterback Tony Romo. Otherwise, the Cowboys lost to Pittsburgh, Arizona, Philly, Baltimore and the Giants — the NFL’s final four and its defending Super Bowl champion — as well as to 8-8 Washington when the Redskins were rolling early.

Three reasons why the Cowboys will be better off in 2009 jump to mind: 1) Romo doesn’t have to sweat the T.O. drama any more, and that’s going to help his head and his game; 2) explosive running back/return man Felix Jones should play more than six games this time around; 3) the Cowboys improved their porous secondary both at cornerback and safety in free agency and the draft.
