Great Win

When I first looked through the schedule, I counted 10 wins for the Cowboys this season. After two weeks, many would say that a 10-win season would probably be an overestimation. That said, I think that where we are right now, we are still on pace for those 10 wins.

I originally said that we SHOULD win 4 of our first 5 games. The optimist in me was SCREAMING for me to think we could beat the Giants, but the realist in me was never sold on that. We lost to the Giants. That said, the realist in me said that we would split with the Giants and Panthers and should also win against the Broncos and Chiefs. The Broncos have been a lot better so far though, so that could be a problem. That said, if we're going to be a real threat this season, we have to beat the Broncos. The Chiefs are a trap game; another big game where you just hope you don't lose and give into the upset.

I think we could be 4-1 heading into our Week 6 bye. After that, the road gets tougher. We're going to need all 4 of those wins I've given us in order to get to 10 this year (I think 10 is the magic number btw). We will lose to the Saints if they continue to play as well as they have been. Washington however is a lot worse than I imagined. If we could sweep them, we could stand to lose an extra game, because I said we'd split with them. Hopefully though, we sweep them and don't lose an extra game. That would put us at 11 and definitely in the Playoffs.

So overall, as much as everyone (myself included) overreacted to the Giants loss, we're actually right where I thought we'd be at this point. If the defense can play up to the level it was last night for the rest of the season, this could really be a special season. Let's see it happen before we crown them, though.
