This team plays much better as an underdog

    I'm not sure why. On the road or as an underdog (see the Indy, @New York, Carolina, Atlanta games), we seem to step up and play well.

    At home or as the favorite (see the Giants @ home, New Orleans, Philadelphia), we seem to play poorly.

    I thought when Bill announced he was giving the players a few days off last week was a poor choice. You are playing for the division crown and possibly the #2 seed - why take off? You can do that after Christmas the last week of the season.

    This team just doesn't have the same heart or tenacity at home as they do on the road. I actually think 3 games on the road in the playoffs could be good for this team. A tough road, yes, but maybe an better one for this team.

    yeah. We should beat Detroit and probably play a strugglinmg Seattle team. I'm not conceding anything until we're eliminated. Will we win the NFC? probably not but hell, why go into a game convinced we'll lose without any hope?

    The Cowboys can't handle prosperity, they lack killer instinct and some more... They'll be bounced in the first round of the playoffs which is sad considering all the money Jerry Jones spent in the past two off seasons. They did a marginal job of drafting when you really look at it over the four years Parcells has been in Dallas.
