    The TEAM / PLAYERS never gave up. The one and done was all on Garrett and his decisions.

    I'm desperately hoping to see the new Quinn crew (vets also) come into camp with fire and blow past all the complacent Garrett holdovers.

    Perform or someone is waiting to take your job.

    I don't believe that was the case around here much during the Garrett era, especially toward the end.

    300 yards rushing in a playoff game. 4th and 24? that list goes on and on. But these things define being unable to handle pressure. That falls on everyone involved. top to bottom. Coaches, front office, players, preparation etc etc. Not giving up and being unable to handle any pressure are 2 different things and they're still sitting home either way.

    When was the last time some Cowboy fan didn’t describe some Cowboy player a beast? Plenty of Cowboys who have been anointed as lifetime beasts.

    That changes this year, at least for 1 playoff game, then they may sit at home after that. :laugh:
    Actually it may be 2 playoff games. I think the NFC shifts this year as to what teams rise and fall. Except TB will be in the mix for sure.

    I will be happy they just win the division, then see what happens from there. No SB aspirations, but I do expect them to win the division, unless WFT and NYG really surprise.

    I don't think they ever gave up, I do think the pressure of the moment in that key situations late in games be it offense or defense we do not tend to make the play to seal the game.
    Every game there are certain moments that tend to swing the game and this team has to learn to capitalize in those moments. I think we have a lot of good players but they need to learn how to win and often times it is that 1 big 3rd or 4th down you must convert or stop that ends up being the difference.

    I think the tide is turning. I don’t expect a Super Bowl, but I do see a team that can compete and even be a playoff surprise if the D can come together. Just don’t look unprepared and outmatched. Losing a tight game is a heart breaker, but looking like you don’t belong there is even worse!

    Probably back to '95....when everything else ended as well. Time as we know it, and Cowboys history. Excluding Tyrone Smith's first few years in the league, prior to his injuries.

    Marion Barber…. Been a while. In fact that’s the last current Cowboy Jersey that I bought.

    Considering how much better off we are this year, as compared to 2020, it's a great setup for the coaches, players and the fans!:thumbup:
