Waiting for the Cowboys to show some dominance





How long have we been waiting for the Cowboys to show some dominance over a hated opponent? It seems like a long time. There were the back-to-back wins over Philly in 2009, including our first playoff victory in more than a decade. There was the pretty dominant 2007 regular season team, Wade's first, that lost a tough game to the Giants in the playoffs when we allowed Eli to march down the field right before halftime to tie it up. That team beat the Giants twice I believe in the regular season, but couldn't when it counted. Do we have to go all the way back to Jimmy Johnson's Cowboys for real Boys' dominance? Barry Switzer oversaw the playoff debacle against the 49ers when, had Jimmy been the coach, we likely would have won our 3rd SB in a row on the way to 4 straight. Those Switzer teams were capable, but didn't have the same swagger that Jimmy helped provide. This year's team has had dominant performances against the lowly Rams and somewhat better Bills. We were dominating the Jets and the Lions until late turnovers cost us both games. No other win has been dominant, and the weakness of those opponents undermines the Boys' accomplishments. I'm just waiting for the Cowboys to be the team that dominates from the opening whistle till the end of the game against a team that is also in the hunt and desperate for a win to make the playoffs. There is no better time for that to happen than tomorrow night. A dominant win should carry the team to wins over the Bucs and Eagles, and make the final game in NY meaningless. It would set the Boys up for first round success against any wild card opponent, and allow the team to go to Green Bay with a fighting chance. Do I expect that to happen? No. But it would be awfully nice.
