‘This year is – not- our year’

The Dallas Cowboys Season in Shambles

   The NFL Playoffs were filled with upsets and big wins. Many teams looking for a Superbowl run had their hopes cut short in the opening playoff games. The Dallas Cowboys and Green Bay Packers game had one of the more surprising outcomes of the year. 

   The Dallas Cowboys were heavy favorites coming into this game, they were ranked second overall in the National Football Conference and looked to have a deep push into the playoffs and maybe even become Super Bowl contenders. This game was supposed to be a quick warm-up game for the Cowboys but the Packers played to win.

   The Dallas Cowboys had a very impactful regular season. They had 12 wins and 5 losses and they won the NFC East. The franchise was on its way to the playoffs with great potential. They had already defeated good teams like the Eagles and the Lions. They seemed to have found their rhythm and were looking at a successful post-season, but they were cut short by the Green Bay Packers with a loss of 32-48. 

   With this, the media began speculating that Head Coach Mike McCarthy’s job might be on the line. But the Cowboys’ front office doubled down and ensured McCarthy was in their future. QB Dak Prescott is entering the last year of his contract and has entered negotiations with the front office. The media is speculating that the Cowboys will give Prescott a new contract since he is considered a Top-10 Passer in the NFL.

  All these uncertainties come with anger from fans who want a change in the franchise. They want to be able to rely on the team when the going gets rough, be able to beat teams during the postseason, and be Super Bowl Contenders.
