Next steps

There are key indicators in the maturation of a team.  The Cowboys won the first few games with a strong combination of talent and luck.  However, this team failed the only real test of the season because the defense simply could not stop the New England offense.  Fortunately, we have seen a good defense become a very good defense as the season has progressed.  They continue to progress, hopefully to a championship defense by years end.  One fact that seems to have been forgotten, this is the first year of a new defensive system.

This game will tell us if our beloved Cowboys are ready to take the next step. It is one thing to win a bunch of games, it is quite another to take control of the team's destiny.  Can the 2007 Cowboys make the knockout blow?  They can essentially win the division tomorrow in New York.

Win and the NFC title will go through Dallas.

Lose and their just one of six playoff teams in the lesser of two divisions.
