    What a brutal schedule next year. Oakland and KC are the only patsies the entire year.

    Schedule really isn't that bad. Not any worse than what we saw at this time last year for the 2012 schedule. We don't know where a lot of these teams will be by the beginning of next season. I just hope that we open at home and/or close at home. I'm sick of opening on the road and/or closing on the road.

    We play 4 playoff teams next year. Not that brutal.

    Thats a favorable schedule.

    You guys are matched up against a weak AFC West which should be as bad next year.

    Not nearly as brutal as 2012.

    Five of those games:

    Chiefs
    Bears
    Chargers
    Eagles (twice)

    are going through coaching changes so that equates to rocky seasons next year for them so thats a plus for the Cowboys. I agree it's hard to predict what a team will do next year but besides maybe Detroit if they're able to break the losing hex I can't see any of those other teams breaking out.

    Don't really care about who we play. Can we please play week 17 at home and maybe the opener also at home?

    Is there a preset formula or is the NFL just out to get us?

    2012 @ skins
    2011 @ nyc
    2010 @ phily
    2009 home vs phily (we win!!!)
    2008 @ phily
    2007 @ skins

    5 of 6 on the road - what are the odds???

    I think our home opponents look more formidable than the road ones. 5 of our home opponents are in the post season.

    St.Louis.. Plays tough now and after loading up on RG3 payday will be better especially under year two with Fisher.

    Broncos..Manning enough said and potentially the 2012 SB Champ.

    The Raidas are always someone that gives us a fit.

    NYG always own us at home.

    Redskins will not be a slouch home or away.

    GreenBay...certainly will test our Defense and Offense if they stay healthy.

    Minnesota..um if our rushing Defense doesn't improve AP may pick up 500 of his 2000 yds next year in one game. :laugh2:


    Conversely we have 5 of our road opponents that finished worse than us or out of the playoffs.

    Funny, I was thinking just thinking the same thing...but from the road perspective.

    Saints seem to be the only tough non-NFCE road game next year.

    But in general, the Cowboys play so bad at home, that it's almost as if they're playing on the road.

    That is true too. Looks like I'm going out on a limb and saying 8-8. :laugh1:

    This kind of goes back to my point at the beginning of this thread. I am going to be pissed off if we open and close on the road again. Enough is enough. Start giving us some home games to start and end the season. People can say all they want about us not having a home field advantage but I'll take playing one of those deciding games at the end of the season at home anyday than having to go to Wash., Philly, or NYG.

    that looks ugly. But its so far away...maybe Peyton takes step back. Chicago could be in turmoil.

    Our home schedule looks real rough. But our road schedule looks relatively easy KC, San Diego, Detroit, Chicago could all be down.

    Oakland won't be any good. But the rest of our home schedule looks tough. St. Louis could be a pretty scrappy team in Jeff Fisher's 2nd season. They nearly went undefeated in the tough NFC West this year.
