Look at it anyway you want but the 2010 team was a playoff team that underachieved and ended up quitting on their HC. That same team went 11-5 and won a playoff game the previous season because they stepped up due to everyone being so down on them after the disappointing 2008 season. Part of what went wrong with the 2010 team was the SB expectations heading into that season. The Cowboys can't handle expectations it leads to pressure and the team folding. The Cowboys were never able to overcome the disappointing loss to Washington on opening day. The way they lost that game with a scoop and score fumble return right before the half and a holding call in the final seconds on what appeared to be the game winning TD devastated the team and they never recovered.
