The Cowboys inconsistencies have proven to take a toll on this team, they had many opportunities to come within a game of taking over the NFC East and now they might be missing the playoffs yet again. The Dallas Cowboys have struggled up to this point and it doesn’t help that they’ve lost a rising star on their defense, Bruce Carter. That’s the fourth defensive starter gone for the remainder of the season, the other three being Sean Lee, Barry Church, and Kenyon Coleman.
The Cowboys are 5-6 and are playing against the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday. If they manage to lose against the Eagles we can finally stick a fork in the Cowboys and forget about this season. The Eagles like the Cowboy had difficulties of their own this season as many considered them NFC East favorites to win the division, but understandably they blew it.
With the Eagles fate decided, the Cowboys season is the only one that suspends on the balance in this final match up. This may pose a problem for the Cowboys because the Eagles are playing with nothing to lose, thus making them more likely to take bigger risks.
If Dallas falls short yet again, they would miss out on the playoffs for a third consecutive season. This would in turn prompt a much needed coaching change and address necessary behavioral adjustments. The lack of discipline and drive this team has shown the last three years is ridiculous and inexcusable and should be addressed without delay. Regardless of their lack of discipline on the offensive line this team should be a competitor with all the talent they possess.
The Cowboys are hanging by a thread and they must win the remainder of their schedule to have a chance at the playoffs. Despite the Cowboys still having a shot for the playoffs they do not look poised enough to find their way into them. All in all just like last year with the Giants game, it might just come down to the Redskins game to decide whether or not the Cowboys go to the playoffs.
