    Beating the skins in DC and making the playoffs would be a successful season for me. I feel as though this has been a successful season. Think about it, we were 3-5, at that time I thought the best we would do is 6-10. We looked bad and then we started losing defensive players, I thought is was a wrap. Then we string together some gritty games and win 5 out of 7. Didn't see that coming. But what I am excited about is we put this little run together at the time of the year we usually fall apart. So with us losing players to injuries, the oline is still the same oline and December coming around we put some wins together. Romo upped his game, Bryant upped his game. We seemed to come together as a team. So the whole "Dallas can't win in December" stuff is untrue. We seemed to come together as a team in the hardest stretch for us the last couple years and we displayed heart. That is exciting for me because the last couple years that wasn't the case so with that I think it's been a success.

    We're not in that kind of NFL anymore. 91 was a different era, the 80s and 90s teams built for the future and for progression. Today's NFL is a year to year league because of free agency, lack of depth, rules, etc. If the Cowboys make the playoffs try and when it all. We all thought after 09 when we beat Philly and then lost to Minny that would be back and make a deeper run. We haven't been back to the playoffs since.

    Beating the Redskins and upsetting one of the top dogs Seattle/Niners. Anything after that is all icing on the cake.

    Ultimately you want the whole thing but it would be a big step for this team to win this Sunday and make it to the NFC Championship game.

    Probably, although I'd say winning against the Skins and then failing to show up in the first round (like Seattle and Chi) would be a major disappointment.

    I’m happy with any season in which we do better than the Redskins, Giants, and Eagles

    I do agree with this only because at home, you've gotta have a big time effort in the playoffs.. even if you lose, it gives things to build on instead of, we can't even get up for a home playoff game?
