Well.. I'm still pissed off. Am questioning why I let this team hurt me so much. But I do and it does and that's that.
So I'm moving onto facts. (and btw., we're approaching the 24 hour rule, so this seems fitting).
Despite the insanity, here are the facts about the 2011 Cowboys and playoffs:
Cowboys control their destiny if they beat Giants and win 1 of 2 other games. Doesn't matter which. Why? Both Cowboys and Giants have identical divisional records today. And both have 2 divisional games left. Cowboys: eagles, giants. Giants: Redskins, cowboys.
• Cowboys win vs. eagles, lose to tampa and win at giants: cowboys are 9-7 and 4-2 in division
• Giants win vs. redskins and NYJ and lose to Cowboys: giants are 9-7 and 3-3 in division
• Cowboys lose to Eagles but beat Tampa and Giants, cowboys are 9-7 and 3-3 in division and 7-5 in conference
• Giants win vs. redskins and NYJ and lose to Cowboys: giants are 9-7 and 3-3 in division and 6-7 in conference
Of course, best for us to win next two games and Giants to lose next two games. That too would do it.
btw., Philadelphia is in the running if they win out and both Giants and Cowboys lose 2 of 3. Too many tie break scenarios in this case despite the Cowboys having two losses to Eagles.
