Dallas Cowboys fans dissatisfied
If the playoffs were to end today, Dallas would be a fifth seed facing the beatable Atlanta Falcons (#4)-first place in the NFC South.
Fans should enjoy the moment
It’s followed by the Philadelphia Eagles as a #1 seed, the Minnesota Vikings (#2), Seattle Seahawks (#3), New York Giants (#6), and San Francisco 49ers (#7).
There is a realistic chance the NFC playoff picture will look exactly like that, and Dallas is more than capable of beating any one of those teams.
But not too long ago, these same fans gave up on the season because of Dak’s injury and were writing up mock drafts for the 2023 NFL draft. No, you are not getting off that easy baby boy- pick your struggle and stick with it.
If the Dallas Cowboys were 0-8, 1-7, or 2-6, you would have a valid reason to complain but with a 6-2 record nobody saw happening, you do not get the luxury to complain-including myself.
See, the Dallas Cowboys are 6-2 and one of the best five teams in the league on a bye week with a few players expected to contribute to the second half of the season. I will take that positivity over a losing record any day.
As a reminder, some NFL teams peak early, some peak later, and others just get absolutely hot at the right time and carry that momentum all the way to the Super Bowl. This Dallas team has not even peaked yet, so let that soak up any negative vibes you are experiencing.
Like many of you, I am a fan of the Dallas Cowboys and want to win every game and eventually a Super Bowl, too, but instead of arguing and complaining about stuff that does not matter, just enjoy the moment of being a fan of a really good football team with so much potential to get even better.
Because you could be a fan of the Houston Texans. And that would really give you some cruel dissatisfaction.
