The Dallas Cowboys took one on the chin after sleepwalking in Seattle on Sunday. But don’t panic Cowboy fans. In fact, I think I have a comparison that is very similar to our current situation that can still allow us to still have some major hope for this 2012 Season.
All we need to do is remember the 1992 Dallas Cowboys for inspiration. That team which was arguably the best Dallas Cowboy team ever, beat the then Superbowl champion Washington Redskins in the Monday Night Football opener. After that big win, Dallas would then get blown out on the road by the Philadelphia Eagles in week 4 by the very similar score of 31-7.
That Dallas team also had a young inexperienced aggressive defense, a young star running back, a controversial #88 at wide-receiver, and a quarterback who needed to take charge and put it all together to reach his full potential as a MVP and Superbowl Champion. The final result – the 1992 Cowboys rebounded at home the next week, ironically shutting out the Seattle Seahawks, 27-0. They then went on to finish the season 13-3, become NFC East Champions, and won the NFC Title game in San Francisco against the #1 seed 49ers.
I am not saying we didn’t hit a speed bump on Sunday. But if I was head coach Jason Garrett, I would draw this comparison between the greatest Cowboy team ever. A team he was a member of. It only proves that a season is not lost with one blow-out road loss. This season is far from over.
