Yep couldn't agree more.

So much hinges on tomorrows game, just hope the pressure works in our favour!!

Time to turn off the lights!

Time to build for next year now, would give McGhee some game time to see if he's ready to be Romo's backup for next year. O line and secondry needs major work.

I think our season ended with about 12.07 left to go in the 2nd quarter last night. I agree with the above, give McGee some time and see how he can hold up, he certainly looked ok in the preseason finale at Miami.

I think in any other NFC Division the Cowboys would have a shot at the playoffs because it is a poor Conference this year. However, the Giants look so strong when they play well and are looking the most likely to be at the Superbowl. Washington and Philly can both beat anyone on their day so not for me. Can only see the Cowboys getting 7 wins maximum.

Without Romo i'm struggling to see 4 wins tbh.

I agree on the McGee thing as well. The season is over now, lets just see what hes got. No point playing kitna. If mcgee performs he might have some trade value.

7?!

I would think more in the area of 3/4. The schedule we had anyway was one of the toughest, the division we play in is the toughest, without Romo it almost nullifies all those threats on offence and with the possibilities of a new HC, I really would see us struggling to get to 7.

In fact, I would rather have 3/4 wins than 6/7, thats the difference usually between a good few draft picks, and to be honest, the seasons over, I wouldn't mind a Top 5 pick!

For those who still hold a glimmer of hope...!

"CAT scan is back and sources say Cowboys Tony Romo is out 6-8 weeks and looks closer to 6 right now..."

If you re-read my post I say 7 wins as a maximum.

Smile shame...

Doubt the Cowboys can make it back from this... The Giants look pretty strong.

Mind you the Cowboys could easily be in the plus column for wins.

i'd say 7-8 wins max and that would be a very good return given that anyone seems to be able to beat anyone...

lt's hope a Texas team can make the Superbowl!

Albeit you are both claiming 'maximum' wins, but Dallas in 'real' wins will get nowhere close to 7/8. As I said, Romo out for 6-8 weeks, 3/4 wins is the maximum this team will achieve.
