A Losing Season Good For Future

I'm about as Die Hard as any other Cowboys Fan, but now that the dust has settled and I begin to comprehend what happened to us in 2004, I think deep inside this is not as bad as it feels. All our hopes were high, maybe too high, that's why the let down and mistakes are so amplified. This being said, our 6-10 record will help us out for the 2005 season. No one hopes for wins, but we do have a high pick, around #11, and our Buffalo pick is around #18 or so...there are some definite impact players that will come to us at those picks. In addition, our losing season will be motivation for coaches and players to get this thing going into the playoffs in 2005. Look, we have some positive to look at, especially with regards to the young players on this team. in 2005, we'll have Newman back at CB, with more experience and more experience with the new rules that were set in place this year, RB is not a question mark for 2005 - Julius Jones is the real, so that is set, Witten will be in year 3yr, can you imagine what Witten will do in 2005.

Our offseason focus will probably be on defense whether its via the draft and/or free agency. The defensive unit needs a few more tweaks, and not some stop gaps, we need proven playmakers.

Let's learn from the mistakes and experients of 2004 and get going for 2005!

    O line needs MAJOR help and the unsettled QB is also a worry. I too think '05 will be an exciting year and one to look forward to.

    I think dallas needs one more corner and a strong saftey to complement Roy Williams. They also need a quarterback, i would say to go after a proven young'n like Drew Brees we also need a d end.

    I too hold some optimism for 05, but it is certainly guarded. All indications point to the Boys either sticking with Vinny or trying to bring along Henson; either proposition is scary. Unfortunately there are not many other options available. What did you say, go after Brees. Personally I am all for that, but even if the chargers do make him available, it will be only after he is franchised. This means the cowboys will at a minimum have to give up two first rounders to get a trade. I think it is worth it, but after the Galloway experiment, Jerry is not willing to take that risk. Oh did I hear you say Hassleback. Unfortunately he posses the same problem as Brees. So, let’s say they stick with Vinny or Drew Henson and try to fill the other gapping holes. If you took time to read this far, I'm sure you know what they are. It won't be enough. Not to be good next year anyway. I think the best we can hope for is another sub par or 8-8 season at best. That is of course unless Jerry surprises me.
