NFL  > Dallas Cowboys  > Big D as in Drama!
December 19, 2011, 02:08 PM
What would a Cowboys possible playoff not be without drama.

Bottom line...Dallas wins, we are in.

They lose to Philly and win vs the Giants they are in.

The Giants win vs the Jets and beat the Boys, they are in and we are out.


Tony Romo is playing sick football over the last few weeks and even in the 2 losses, that was not on Tony as we all know in the Zona and Giants losses.

Philly is going to be a test...they are playing well and blew us out when we saw them earlier.

Rob Ryan needs to get pressure out of this defense, period.

If we get to Vick, we win...if we don't, he will kill our secondary in a number of ways.

Personally...I am hoping that Dallas beats Philly and gets help from the Jets, making that last game at NY meaningless.

We will see....

Not a lot of comfort relying on the defense to do much of anything. They already showed they are a bad match up against the Eagles.

If the truth be known, I actually didn't expect the 'Boys to make the playoffs, much less win the division............ not after last year. And, I'm still kind of reserved about them even now. Romo and the offense may just have to win in a shoot out, but the last quarter is the biggest question mark. If they get up on the Eagles like they did the Bucs, they're going to have to keep the pedal to the metal, and not coast in the 2nd half like they did last game.

Three frigging points in the 2nd half is not going to get it. I mean, other teams have wiped out the Eagles.......why can't the Cowboys, other than it being a divisional rival? Maybe I answered my own question.....lol


I love me some Redskins..............at least this past weekend..................hahahaha

I think Andy did it to himself, with Castillo...in my opinion.

I would like the game in NY to close out the season to mean something, winner take all. I suspect the Giants fans feel about the way the Dallas fans felt after the AZ game. Dumbfounded!!

My Christmas wish is for the Cowboys defense (and offense for that matter) to become dominant, instead of dormant, and kick some booty all the way to the SB, but that's unlikely.

But, I will settle for either a winning season or the NFC East title.

Dominant vs dormant!! Well done, nice wish. I hope you've been a good boy and Santa brings you what you asked for.

Actually after the first Eagles game, Rob Ryan took all credit for playing way to vanilla and letting the Eagles march up and down the field.

I think he will bring the house and have moderate success.

Dallas's Offense will need to put up 28pts to win this one.

If the D can get a few stops, not many, just a few and the offense keeps clicking behind Romo, I think we can win.

Do not forget, they still have to guard Austin, Bryant, Robinson, Witten and Jones.

I will say this...

All and I mean ALL of the NFC teams have poor pass defense...the Packers are 31st and the Saints are 28th in the league...Dallas can do one thing well and that is throw the ball.

If Dallas can win at least the Giant game, which is VERY possible, Dallas can be a legit threat in the playoffs.

The Packers can score, but it was just shown that if Rodgers is running for his life, he is not that great....Dallas can get after the QB...

Don't count them out....

One big problem about bringing too much pressure, that secondary cannot cover one on one. If the Dallas o-line has a good game they can win.

look out for the saints and niners folks, not counting the pack out, but they are winding down a bit where some teams seem to be moving up, like Saints, Niners, Pats, Denver, If the Rat chickens get healthy before the steelers, look out afc. I would freak if it came down to harbaugh SB.
say it isn't so!

what is the Dallas scenario after this weekend, this stuff gets pretty complex in week 15

The only certain thing is that the wild card will not come from the East.

It's weird not having my tea in the play offfs after so many years in the hunt. Makes me want to drink and not give a crap, but alas I am a true football fan, and will roll with the punches and support my friends teams and enjoy the tight, well fought, games.
