I like the fact that the back end of our schedule is tough. If this team is for real as we all hope, it’s time to prove it on the field. Want to earn some respect? We will have a chance to do just that starting Sunday night about 7:20 PM. IMO this Sunday night game in Dallas will be the Cowboys 4th game so far this season that measures them against a very solid opponent. They have thus far faced 3 quality teams in the saints, pack and e-girls, and have come away from those games 1-2. Against lesser opponents (which the first half of our schedule was loaded with) we are 4-1. So Sunday night should be a very good measurement of what this team is at the midway point of the season. Other than the embarrassing loss to the hapless Jets, we’ve been good against the bad teams, not so good against the better ones. The only consistent thing this team has been is inconsistent. As the second half of the season officially begins, its time for the excuses to end. This team has enough talent to make some noise. This is Jason Garrett’s ninth full season as HC. He’s “bought the groceries”, so it’s time to cook or get out of the kitchen. How big, bad, and tough is this team? Can they overcome the adversity that all good teams will face to prove they are worthy of respect? This team is going to be tested in the next two months to see if it’s exactly what almost everyone on these boards said it would be back in the summer. This should be a wild, fun ride.
