Dallas Cowboys vs 49ers: Super Bowl Bound
I expect the Dallas Cowboys versus the San Francisco 49ers to be another classic game that will go down to the wire or just have a dynamic finish. Last season’s lost still burns this Dallas team, so I expect this team to continue their revenge tour and bounce back from that embarrassing loss. Especially since the media are praising the 49ers as the best team ever, and hailing rookie quarterback, Brock Purdy, as the next Joe Montana.
Yes, the 49ers are a really good team with Pro Bowlers on both sides of the ball that plays physical for four full quarters, but they are far from invincible and have flaws like every other NFL team, mainly in their secondary. What makes this game so intriguing is not the players on the field but the head coaches leading the way.
For all of the criticism head coach Mike McCarthy receives (some justified/some not), Coach Big Mac is a Super Bowl-winning head coach that knows the path to capturing the Lombardi Trophy. In Green Bay, Coach Big Mac had to go on the road as the underdog and win three difficult games enroute to defeating the Pittsburgh Steelers in the Super Bowl. That is not an easy task for any head coach pull off, even if Aaron Rodgers is your quarterback.
Kyle Shanahan has coached in the Super Bowl and is a really good coach that leans heavily on his running game and puts Purdy in position to succeed to the degree that critics are not even predicting him to lose this game. This game will come down to how Coach Big Mac/Kellen Moore exploits the 49ers’ secondary, avoid their pass rushers, scheming players to play at an optimal level and how Dan Quinn can neutralize the 49ers vaunted running game.
It will be up to the players to execute their jobs to the fullest extent like they have done all season. Playing in San Francisco will be a tough game, but this team has fought adversity all season long. So, this is nothing new.
But what is new is winning a game that can put the Dallas Cowboys in the NFC Championship game for the first time since 1992.
And as history has showed us that whenever the Cowboys beat the 49ers in the playoffs, good things happen. Maybe history will repeat itself on Sunday night in favor of the Cowboys, for once!
