    Dallas Cowboys look good, but not Super Bowl good

    by Cedric Golden,

    ARLINGTON — Do yourself a favor and don't get caught up in the Dallas Cowboys' show of superiority over a quality Buffalo team Sunday.

    No way Dallas is capable of putting up those types of performances over the course of a regular season and into the playoffs ... right?

    Now, if this were, say, the world champion Green Bay Packers, a 44-7, turnover-free win over a division leader wouldn't be met with much surprise. After all, the Packers are under the direction of soon-to-be league MVP Aaron Rodgers, who has more receiving options than 
FedEx and a defense that makes more big plays than it gives up. And don't forget the most important trait of all: the hardware.

    There's just something about holding the championship trophy aloft that gives a team the credibility to be taken extremely seriously

    Umm I'm not sure if anyone said they were Superbowl good at this point... Did anyone think Green Bay was Superbowl good last year around this time?

    Dallas has strung together one very good win and one OK win.

    Let's see where they are a month from now.

    I don't believe there is a single human being who thinks the Cowboys are a Super Bowl calibre team, so I'm not sure why teh writer is bringing it up.

    This was a very solid win against a good team. It is encouraging, but nobody is thinking Super Bowl.

    Nobody thinks that Dallas is SB-bound, I hope (although it's not impossible), but this is just an incredibly stupid argument. If you can't take a team seriously as a Super Bowl contender until they've actually won a Super Bowl, what in the world do we need sportswriters for in the first place?

    I do. I've said all year and I'll continue to say we have super bowl caliber talent. Great recieving core, top 5 QB, very good run game, great defense, good special teams, good coaching. All it takes is getting hot at the right time.

    With our schedule we should be 8-5 at worst a month from now.
