    Anyone else seeing some similarities in how this team is put together and the 91 Cowboys?

    QB...check

    Running game...check

    OL becoming a strength...check

    Explosive receivers...check

    A young and fast defense with something to prove...check

    If we get that wave on the DL working I can easily see 11-5 and a couple of playoff games.

    I love your optimism. No sarcasm at all. Although, I'm excited to see all of the soul crushers that will soon give way to your post. Cheers! :D

    I can see it on the offense but not the d. The coach is not even close.

    You just listen to the Tony Romo NFL Network interview, zebra? Sounds like Tony might agree with you, though he thinks we might be a year or so away. Also sounds like he might be pretty sure we're on the right course and looking to maintain the status quo. That's a little reading in between the lines, but not all that much.

    I see it a little bit. What may be missing is that great DL although I'm not disparaging this latest version. I think they will be an asset esp if Spencer contributes. I think we're a player or two away on D.

    I'm thinking the O will average 30+ppg and the D around 20. That should make some waves if the turnover diff is a + one.

    I am all for optimism but did you just compare this team to one of the greatest NFL teams of all time?

    The Triplets were drafted back to back to back over three consecutive years. You could see the team progressing before your eyes year after year. It was 1-15, 7-9, 11-4, 13-3. Everything was pointing upward. It was undeniable and quite thrilling. Unfortunately, I don't feel that with this team, but if we're on our way to another special era, I don't care how we get there as long as the process begins.

    Ironically, before the 91 season all the experts were saying Dallas is two years away. So they don't know what the heck they're talking about, then or now.

    No. It's a little late to start doing this anyway with a 34 year old QB. Besides the defense is just awful. I don't see any similarities with the 91 team. That team you could tell was going up. This team is stuck in mediocrity.

    Another year. Another season. Another opportunity to see if football fan predeterminism is validated yet again or the team can take the next step.

    Why is it taking so long for September to get here? Must hunt for a time machine on Ebay. :)

    Good OP BZ. I have my fingers crossed for improved defensive play in 2014.

    I want to feel the same way as you, I really do - but, having JG tempers my expectations.

    I normally hate on Romo but he has all the weapons to have a fantastic season.
