Now that the game has been played I thought it would be good to see how everyone feels about the Cowboys playing their starters against the Eagles.
I agree with this.You couldn't go into the playoffs on a two game losing streak, you needed a positive vibe and I never believe in just resting guys, you have to play to win every game, you can't turn the team off and on like a light switch, it just never works!
This right here. Yes, the odds are against it, but the #2 seed is still in play. The odds were against the Cowboys in 1988 to get the 1st overall draft pick in ‘89, but Green Bay did the unthinkable and win their last game (against Detroit IIRC), thereby handing the Cowboys Aikman. It’s never over until the pleasingly plump matron sings.With a higher seed still in play it was essential IMO.
This offense needs to work together and get as many reps as possible to nail down their timing and communication.
Yes— it was just backups— but there is always value in live reps and trying to refine your execution.
