    To win their division? I agree. SB? Nope.

    Really I think having a bunch of stars is less effective than having cohesive teamwork. We'll have a good sense of that truth pretty soon, though.

    I'd be all for seeing a Cowboys/Patriots superbowl.

    Too much Jessica, too little testosterone.

    I'm serious.

    In Texas we say "big hat, no cattle." That's the Cowboys.

    Peter King says its the Cowboys year to get to the Super Bowl . . . and lose to the Pats.

    I can't live in a world where Wade Philips coaches a team to the Super Bowl.

    Seriously though, Dallas did well last year due to all of Parcells players and assistants. The longer Wade hangs around, the worse they will get. And I think Jerry Jones relizes this.

    I agree Wade is a doofus. But his OC Jason Garrett(sp), that kid is good. He was born and bred to be a football coach. Much like our own grey Hooded overlord.

    Imagine a Super Bowl showdown between Wade Phillips and Norv Turner. It would be enough to make a guy give up on football.

    I don't think it will be. I think Eagles will win NFC East and Cowboys will be a wild card team and probably lose in the 1st Rd.

    If You have watched any of The HBO Show featuring The Cowboys ,You would know that they have no chance.Too many egos and a very disfunctional family.

    Wade Phillips is a lame duck HC. He knows if he doesn't get his team to the Super Bowl, he is fired. Too many head cases on the team too - TO, Crayton, Pacman, their rookie TE, etc.

    I think the Cowboys may get to the Super Bowl in a weak NFC, but I don't think they are better than a healthy Patriots, Chargers, or Colts.

    I do think if they hit a rough streak of losses, that team will literally explode. The personality mix between the HC and players is perfect for a major meltdown.

    The Cowboys are like the Yankees; too much star power, not enough team. It doesn't help that they have a bonehead coach who lets the players do whatever they want, and a QB who has never won a playoff game.

    Yeah, they do seem like they can be out of control, but it could be the editing. Although that rookie TE they got is the biggest imature baby I have ever seen. When he refused to listen to his coach and tuck in his jersey because everyone else had his jersey hanging out was embarrassing brilliance.

    I watched Hard Knocks last year, when they followed the Chiefs. I was not impressed with Herm Edwards, and it was obvious that they didn't have a quarterback.

    In watching the Cowboys on Hard Knocks this year, I'm not impressed with anyone on their coaching staff, except maybe Jason Garrett. I also don't see any signs of veteran leadership on that team. That team will self-destruct this year at the first sign of adversity.

    Good luck getting out of that division healthy. Those six intra-division games will all be super tough, and I think anyone could take that division. I just don't see anyone coming out of that division with enough gas in the tank to win the superbowl.

    I get the feeling they want those guys to play neighbourhood football in the NFL. And that will result in injuries. Not like half of them won't enter the season with broken arms from patting themselves on the back.

    Ummm The Eagles really have nothing special at WR,Can't see them winning the division - Maybe a wild card at best

    Washington is the sleeper in that division - DO NOT throw out the Skins

    Even with Wade Phillips, who in the NFC is poised to challenge them?

    New Orleans is the team most likely to give them fits - That my pick for the NFCCG Dallas vs. New Orleans

    The Saints ,on paper look to have an unstoppable offense and the defense has been definately improved

    I also like Sean Peyton as a HC - He seems to be a guy the players would try very hard to please

    I dunno. I can't shake the image of that N.O o-line getting rolled through like human turnstiles last season on MNF vs. Tenny. Dallas has a very big (strong) D-line, that just added a motivated Tank Johnson to it.

    I agree completely. The only guys on the Cowboys who seem like leaders are Greg Ellis and DeMarcus Ware.

    Tank Johnson, TO, Pacman? Yuck. They might be good players, but no one on the team or coaching staff has the guts to put these guys in line.

    Dave Campo is the biggest joke on Hard Knocks. Players seem to have no respect for him. Jerry Jones undermines any authority that Wade Phillips has. Nah, not the Cowboys this year.

    When I read this thread, this was the first thing that came to my mind:

    http://www.patsfans.com/new-england-patriots/messageboard/showpost.php?p=970661&postcount=1

    Doesn't sound like a champion to me.

    I see the Cowboys as the clear favorite in the NFC, but keep in mind they haven't won a playoff game since 1996. They've shriveled up under pressure in each of the last two playoffs.

    If they make the SB I think the lose it. In fact I believe the Pats would have easily have beaten the Cowboys or the Packers in the last SB.
    You guys had the unfortunate pleasure instead of facing a Cinderella NY team with an astounding D line who feared nothing.

    And there is the motivation of guys who probably already knew they were done after last year (at least with the giants).

    I remember actually rooting for GB to beat the Giants so I could see Favre and Brady go head to head. Little did I know... :rolleyes:

    They'll make the playoffs this year alright. Then lose the first game they play in as always. Then TO can sit on the couch while crying in his popcorn about once again letting his team down.

    The problem with the Boys is too many individuals and not enough team.But, I certainly would not count them out in the NFC.However in the NFC there is always a team or two that suprises you.

    Too many personalities and not enough role players buying in. There are no role models to lead the rookies. Poor Zach will be babysitting all year.
