Would you rather...?

I see 3 possible scenarios for the rest of the season.  As none of them end in the playoffs and Super Bowl glory, I'm a little conflicted as to which one to wish for as the season painfully unfolds.  So help me out--as a diehard Cowboy fan, which would you rather see over the final 10 games?

Scenario 1:  With Romo out, the Cowboys circle the wagons and rely on a slow-and-steady run game and a bend-but-don't break defense.  Throw in a couple of big plays from Miles and Dez and a soft-ish mid-year schedule, and suddenly the team rolls out a couple of wins and finishes the year at 8-8, tied for second in the NFC East, out of the playoffs but with their pride somewhat restored and renewed hope for next season.

Scenario 2: The team totally tanks, quits listening to Wade and Co, continues to rack up the turnovers and penalties--and why not?  The season's already lost.  They squeak out a couple more wins as more and more of the youngsters crack the starting lineup.  The end result is a 4-12 record, making us the laughingstock of the league, but with a shiny top 7 draft pick and excellent draft position to rebuild on.

Scenario 3:  The rollercoaster continues--a 3-game win-streak now as the vets continue to play, but the mediocrity eventually evens things out and the team finishes 6-10 or 7-9, still last in the NFC East, but having at least made things interesting.  As a result though, everything's up in the air--Jerry could still keep Wade or promote Garrett based on the improved finish, the youngsters are still unevaluated, and the draft slot is in the mediocre 14-18 range.

Given those three options, which would you rather have for the rest of the season?  Given the combination of talent and attitude in the locker room and in management, I'd say that #3 is most likely, but that's probably the last one I'd choose...
