It is actually EXTREMELY likely Dallas is 4-5 or 5-4.
5-4 is actually a good result that sets them up reasonably well for the stretch run where there appear to be many winnable games.
In fact even 4-5 doesn't look too bad when you consider the rest of the season. They could easily go 6-1 in that final 7 games.
And if I were Garrett I'd preach two things right now.
1) Us against the world.
2) fight and claw for everything now because we will perform well in that final month and we need it to be meaningful.
