    Stephen's right, we can still make playoffs, and still possibly win the division.
    If neither of those things happen, we will finish 8-8, heck the whole division could end up 8-8,or at least the top 3.

    for all the people that bash Romo, if Payton comes, Romo will be throwing the ball around like Brees does, which is no different than what we have been doing the past 2/3 games.

    Penalties, boneheaded plays, missed tackles, not knowing defensive and offensive assignments, bad play, playcalling, injuries especially injuries derailed this season.

    Country club mentality, needs to change, GM can stay the same, just let Garrett be as strict as he wants to be, stay the course with the HC, and the direction he's taking this team, keep getting his type of players, but spend money on the OL and DL.

    I believe we have 2/3 legit starting Centers already on this team, maybe even both OG spots, we definitely need to get a legit RT.

    Still need to purge some players , scandrick, felix, sensabaugh, coleman, free, dockery, spears, ogletree, tanner, maybe McCray, we need more self motivated players, with intelligence,we might need to sacrifice talent for intellect.

    RB, we need a legit durable everydown RB a definite field stretcher.

    I've heard people compare the longhorns mentality with ours, living here in Austin that is valid comparison, I would also compare the Irish with us as well,
    the Cowboys, and Notre Dame is loved and hated, with that being said I believe Garrett's 3rd season is the start of what we all have been waiting for impatiently .

    Basically we need to stay the course, it looks and feels like we are far off, but really we are closer than people think. Oh Garrett needs to just be the HC, hire an OC please.

    We would have to go at least 4-1 the rest of the way to possibly make it.
    5-10% chance at best but not zero.

    4-1? Why not 5-0?

    Just stop...we have no middle guys. Our top Linebackers are out, and our NT. Our other number 1 WR is done, our star RB's status is up in the air. We have Alan Ball 2.0 at safety.....

    Garrett still does not know how to use this offense until we get down, then he let's them loose

    Let's face reality, we are screwed

    Seattle needs to implode. Then maybe, we get that final spot. (Assuming we win all our games..:gigglestoherself:)

    The Seahawks are about to lose their two starting corners to suspension. The Redskins lost Orakpo and Kerrigan. The Cowboys have already beaten the Bucs, and they rank 30th in total defense and dead last in pass defense.

    Based on the current rosters of all the teams in contention for the final wildcard berth, from a pure talent standpoint, is there any reason to think the Cowboys' chances of making the playoffs shouldn't be at least as good as those teams' chances?

    Well it is possible, but more likely improbable. You never know.

    Yeah man, it can happen. Im sure you are aware that its unlikely but the wonderful forum members will be sure to remind you that youre a idiot for thinking about it. You should probably just delete this thread and make another praising Sean Payton, like all the other cool kids.
    Rooting for a long shot is just insane.

    In my opinion, the Cowboys shouldn't be a long shot. Peruse the rosters of the teams in contention for the final wild card spot and compare them against the Cowboys'.

    If anything, the Cowboys' chances should be just as good if not better than their competitor's. The fact that we see them as a long shot speaks volumes, in my opinion.

    Sorry, I don't have confidence in an offense that is dead last in rushing, injuries almost all across the board, including your two stud inside linebackers, and a team that is held back by its coaching. How are you down 28-3 to the Redskins, on Thanksgiving? I don't expect this team to win another GAME.

    The last thing that comes to mind with this bunch is the postseason. Dallas plays a really bad brand of football. In fact, it's awful.

    I wouldn't mind joining the We Still Have A Shot Crowd, except that nothing I have seen leads me to believe it can happen.
