Steps to Dallas Cowboys success: No business decisions.

The entire Dallas defense must tackle. This Sunday, no one can make business decisions. If they do, they will go home. Match their physicality.

Johnathan Hankins was traded for this type of opponent.

5. Tony Pollard and CeeDee Lamb

Last year Kellen Moore and Mike McCarthy failed to feature their two best play-makers.

Lamb and Pollard touched the ball three times in last year’s playoff game. They can’t happen this trip around. They have to be featured. This will open the field to the complementary players.

Pollard is a match up problem for any linebacker in the league. This isn’t the game where the running back carries should be split.

Sorry, but not sorry. It is not the time to cater to players. Or an owner’s delusions of grandeur towards a faded running back.

Feature your best and most explosive play-makers.


After last year’s playoff humbling loss, Mike McCarthy and the inner circle at the star made several moves in the off season to combat getting big boy again. One of their key components will be missing: Terrence Steele.

San Francisco is going to challenge your physical fortitude. They are a smart, well coached, violent, and a tough football team.

They are not invincible. No team is. They can be beat.

They just don’t beat themselves. You must beat them. That is the way.

Will it be revenge or repeat for Dallas?
