    Getting Frederick and Williams back healthy this season would be huge for the entire offense. Not to mention, what getting Irving and Lee back on defense could do.

    If the Cowboys can get these 4 back healthy, their playoff chances are looking way better.

    That is something to be very concerned about. We still HAVE to beat Philly. If we lose then its the same old same old. If you want to talk about a must win this is a Must win! TBH the rest of the season is must wins. You want to go into the playoffs on a winning streak. Just because we won against the best team in the NFL dont guarantee us a playoff berth. We got Philly and we need a win! Can the team play hard after a win like they had against NO? Thats what make SB contenders. IMO

    I dont see Fredrick back this season and TBH they need to let him take the time to get himself back 100%. What we do Need is the last years version of Irving we need him to be into the game. He is still dealing with his persona issues which I question does David even want to play the game anymore? i would love to have Lee LVE and Jaylon on the field at the same time in passing down situations.

    Bro, that's why you should believe in this team. Been telling you the problem isn't Dak. This Offense simply needed better weapons at WR and better blocking from the Oline, along with better playcalling. Cowboys Offense is still 1 stud WR, better TE performance and possibly better slot receiver (if Beasley leaves by season's end) from becoming truly elite, but I can assure you Dak is not the problem.

    Exactly. Well explained, Ultron.

    Here is a visual for those that want to see the current NFC playoff picture...

    I hate the Rams matchup for Dallas. The Saints to me are easier to defend....stop Kamara and Thomas and they have nothing else.

    I know this forum gets swayed by one game results....as you said 4 weeks ago, we are all thinking we gave up a top 5 pick for cooper and now people are jockeying for playoff seeding.

    the season is not over. we got a tough road ahead and no easy games, including Giants who are picking up some steam.....we could very well go 2-2. eagles could go 3-2. and Washington can go 3-2 and we might miss the playoffs.

    At my age - it's ALL premature ... or non-existent.

    That's the basis for my original thought - "historically", there's not been a defense good enough to stop NO at home ... in the Playoffs.

    ... your scenario is just as plausible as the one I put forth ...

    Remember it as well - over 200 yds against us.
    Wish I could forget it but, so far, no luck ...

    Agreed. I never do this type of posting as I tend to deal with the birds in the hand opposed to the ones still in the bush. Forgive me, I allowed myself a bit of whimsy and just tossed it in the keyboard.

    And I really don't care where, when, and if - as long as we afford ourselves the opportunity to contend.
    But this fantasy post has been fun nonetheless and has drawn some great responses ... including yours!

    Call me crazy I want to beat LA in LA and then play the NFC Championship Game at Soldoer field. It'll be blistering cold and it would likely mimicked a 17-13 score with us headed to the SuperBowl. If this happens we can say we beat the 3 higher seeded teams at some point in the season.

    Neither of those things are true.

    They won a wild card game at Philadelphia in 2014, and lost the first 3 home playoff games in team history (Minnesota, Atlanta, Philadelphia).

    The Saints may not want to see the Cowboys again. The Cowboys were very physical and I think would be very confident playing them.

    No, it's not it's way better because it's inevitable. The Saints will lose a playoff game at home, so why not let that be the Cowboys that beat them.
