The majority of Cowboys nation probably shut off their television sets when the regular season ended and I understand that. They probably can’t handle watching playoff football knowing that their beloved team is not a part of the quest to get the elusive Lombardi trophy. While they bunker down and hide in fear, the truly brave Cowboys fans and myself will turn on the television and watch the truly great teams. Why submit ourselves to so much torture? First of all, we are sports fans and any good game is worth watching. The real reason is that it’s a way to see how the Dallas Cowboys can start to build their team and emulate the best teams in the league. As they say, this is a copycat league.
So which teams should we keep a close eye on? Well of the final four teams left, you have to look at the San Francisco 49ers and the Seattle Seahawks. You could add in the Denver Broncos and the New England Patriots, but so much of what they do is because of their elite quarterbacks. The Seahawks and the 49ers style can be closely replicated by the Cowboys.
So what makes these two NFC teams so tough to beat?
