    If we can't beat the fringe playoff teams we have to face throughout the remainder of the regular season, we really have no business even being in the playoffs. Every team in the playoffs will be as good as or better than the 4 teams we have to face these next 4 weeks. Win or lose, playoffs or none, these next 4 weeks will show if this team will even be competitive if it does happen to make the playoffs.

    On the brighter side, we potentially have 2 months of playoff games ahead of us if we can eek out 3 more wins this month. If we are good enough to beat Cincy then we might just have a chance, huge game Sunday. :starspin

    Yeah. I wasn't trying to be overly pessimistic. My point was, we're not gonna face any teams in the playoffs that are worse than the teams we will face these next 4 weeks. That's not saying these next 4 opponents are bad teams--it's just saying they're fringe playoff teams but not really contenders. So these next 4 games will give us a much better idea of just how good (or bad) this Cowboys team is than games against teams like Philly or Cleveland. We have to show that we're better than these teams if we're going to have any chance to make noise in the playoffs.

    I don't disagree, I was just pointing out that every game from here on out is essentially a playoff game ..... although I think that we might be able to lose one and remain alive under certain scenarios. If we do get into the playoffs and manage to win one or two, it will be 2 straight months of playoff games every weekend - kind of cool, but of course it could end abruptly, like this weekend for instance.
