The Dallas Cowboys are off to a 2-1 start to their season and one where the lone defeat isn’t a terrible one. In a very narrow loss to the defending Super Bowl Champions and the GOAT, Tom Brady, you can live with those results in the very first game of the year for the Cowboys, the league as a whole, and especially considering how they’ve looked since.

There are also a few other things. It was Dak Prescott’s first game since he was injured last season against the Giants. It was Week 5 of last season that saw him go down with that gruesome lower-leg injury. However, almost a year or so removed from the injury, he’s back and just as good as he was, probably better.

Speaking of improvement though, the next compliment has to be thrown to the defense. Though only through three weeks of the year, meaning there is so much more football to be played and they still have a ton to prove, what they’ve shown thus far has been amazing, especially relative to last season.

Speaking of that defense, it brings up a thought about Dan Quinn. He may not be the best head man in the world, but his defenses always play with a certain type of fervor and intensity when he’s the coordinator.
