    After watching todays games, & seeing who's playing in the Conference Championship Games...

    Patriots @ Chiefs

    Rams @ Saints

    Couldn't help but immediately notice, all four teams have explosive offenses. All four teams are where they are, primarily (<---key word) because of their offensive prowess. Without looking up stats, I believe these are four highest scoring offenses in the league.

    The old adage of defense wins championships, sure isn't going to apply this year.

    Looking at them a little closer, you've got 2 aging veteran pocket passers, & 2 young stud mobile QB's. Gonna be interesting to see how this plays out, who wins, & how.

    I hope Jerry & Co. pay attention to what's going on here. This is precisely the direction the league has been trying to move.

    While, our deficiencies on defense were exposed last night, we need a more potent offense to compete with the likes of these teams, & the similar teams that will be coming. The league is very copy cat. This formula is going to be replicated, or at minimum attempted to be replicated by plenty of others.

    So... while trying to fill the weak spots on our defense this off season, please don't leave the status quo with our offense. We need some help there too, or we'll be sitting here watching other teams Championship weekend next year too.....

    Thoughts..?

    Gimme a Chiefs/Rams Super Bowl. Their MNF matchup this season was one for the ages and I think the rematch would be the same.

    Rather see the two young QBs battle it out.

    A Chiefs/Saints shootout could be just as good!

    It’s not only prolific offenses but QB’s. 2 of the best this era and 2 of the best up an coming.

    It’s no coincidence considering none of them have top defenses.

    Our passing game needs some major upgrades. Need OL help, TE, and WR.

    How utterly unfounded all the ridicule directed toward Andy Reid on this board has been over the years. He's a heckuva coach.

    We either need to surround our current QB with more elite talent or look for an elite QB.

    Dak's contract is going to consume Cowboyszone this offseason.

    I agree, & am looking forward to watching the games.

    I didn't watch many games this year that the Cowboys weren't playing in. I usually watch every playoff game though.

    I understand but it’s going to limit the supporting cast surrounding him.

    If this front office couldn’t surround Romo with enough why do we think they will with Dak?

    We need the ability to score more. Not necessarily in the 40s, but 30+ four to five times a season would be nice.

    If the Saints defense at least takes the field, unlike ours, Rams are done. They don't impress me at all.

    I think those are safe bets. Add Irving to the mix, & possibly Lawrence, because of the contract he doesn't deserve, I mean will command.
