Only in such a place as Cowboys Nation, where expectations are always at a Super Bowl level, would an 8-8 season have an exorbitant amount of negativity surrounding it. At first, you would think that being a .500 team would indicate that there are equals levels of positivity to combat the negativity. Not so here. Especially when you have the last month that this organization has had.
Three losses in four chances. One blow out, one head-scratching stomach punch and a Cowboys special (fighting against all odds to come up just short in the last two minutes) tends to have that effect. Add in the season ending back surgery to the face of the franchise (his second “procedure” to his back in the calendar year) and the historically horrible defense and it can be quite easy to forget there were a few very bright spots to come out of the 2013 season.
Today we will try our best to get out of the gloom and doom and laud five players who gave Cowboys fans something to be proud about.
