The Dallas Cowboys Now Live In The Real World

The days of Jerry Jones talking Super Bowl seem to be gone, for now anyways. The expectations for his team have not been this low in a long, long time. Under most experts analytical eye, 8-8 would be a humungous success for this team this year. This folks, is a good thing.

Honestly, this Defense could actually be worse than last year and the Offense might not dominate like they certainly will have to. It seems as though these un-lucky Cowboys will be relying on lucky bounces to get wins this year.

In this world of “what ifs”, nobody is asking what if Morris Claiborne finally meets expectations? What if Rolando McClain does the same? What if Tony Romo and Jason Witten clear the hurdle that has stained their careers? These are the “what ifs” that I am interested in. Every team has issues, the Cowboys’ are just talked about more, a lot more.

When I hear Jason Garrett talk at his Training Camp pressers, there is no panic. There shouldn’t be any either. Garrett understands better than anyone what is at stake this year. He realizes that he has a good coaching staff with a lot of unproven players, we all get that. He also knows that there is hope, he knows that the NFC East can be had. He talks as if he is going to be here next year, as if he intends to win this year.

The Cowboys are underdogs this year and it will serve them well. Hello real world, the Dallas Cowboys have officially arrived.
