    This season I dont expect anything. Dallas is going into this season with way more question marks than last season. When I look at the schedule i really cant see how dallas gets 8 wins.

    People are expecting way too much out of the draft for this year. And then they'll declare it a huge failure when in fact it might be just a normal solid draft that will do us well in a couple of years.

    This is what rebuilding looks like. Except for the part where you're keeping your 51-year-old quarterback.

    Maybe Jerral is right, rebuilding my not be the word we need to describe what has to be done in Dallas to have a chance at something...anything!

    Maybe that word is revamp, though the youth movement and the Draft. Of course people can't expect meere Rookies to match Ware and Hatcher, ironically some of the same people spout that building through the Draft is the only way.

    Expectations are normally the root of suffering.
    The defense almost have to be better just running newbie's through training camp.
    If the Dline is better the secondary will improve.
    Then there's the draft and F.A. Fredericks has another year of maturing.
    I think they'll play better.Does that results in more wins?

    I dont get this "defense will be improved" line of thought. We lost 52% of our sacks. Where is the pass rush? Are you counting on the draft pick having a ROY type season? Melton is a nice player, but he is no pass rusher. It could actually be WORSE. Ware was hobbled but teams still had to prepare for him.

    As it stands now......low expectations but FA plus draft can change this, and a healthy D can make all the difference.

    Yes. In FB we like to think of education as a lifelonk experience. We are learning and growing ever day. I appreciate your comment, TwoDeep.

    No doubtaboutit. The defense is in full rebuilding mode.but put an asterik after the word "rebuilding." We are using peeps like Melton as stop-gap. But stop-gap to what? The draft? What we git next year?
    We won't stop many offenses that's for sure.
    the only hope is we develop a ground game that will take the ball away from the opposing offenses. then we settle in for a year of ball-control season, eating lots of protein and going to the mattress, as they say in Sicily and New Yawk.
    It wont be pretty. The only pretty thing will be to watch Romo drive his family in a rolls royce while the rest of us ride our jitneys.

    Maybe I'm too optimistic, but I don't see why this team can't rebuild the D line in one offseason. I disagree with Melton not being a pass rusher. Yes he has to prove himself healthy, but was among the best inside rushers in 2012. I can't expect a miracle draft pick to save us this year, but give me Donald rd1 Crichton/Martin Rd2 I think we're in business. No superstars, but you have a solid group, with respectable depth if you keep them healthy.

    My playoff hopes and expectations for the 2014 Cowboys far exceeds my hope and expectations for the quality and grammar of your posts to get even slightly better in 2014.:)

    Kinda have the same feeling. The defense could possibly be any worse. So that's something.

    I can't ever give up....I will be excited for EVERY game that they play...I feel the team has playoff potential until the moment that they are eliminated, whether that be in week 10 or in the NFC Championship game...the minute they are eliminated, I am looking forward to free agency and the draft to get started again....

    never surrender, never say die, never give up

    To say you have no expectations is horrible for you what's they point in watching weekI and week out and posting on here during the off season. I don't know if we will make the playoffs but I want to see improvement. Last year I had "expectations" in a way but I wanted to see what this team would do.

    But in the pre season I saw a fire in the defense and the everyone went down. If nothing else happens I hope they can keep and build upon that. It maybe hard to see this team doing anything but remember the other teams in the division dictate our playoffs hopes as well. Any given Sunday
