The Dallas Cowboys looked like they were headed for a good season and they’d finally get past a couple of 8-8 seasons. They at times looked dominant at home in a win over the New York Giants in week one as the defense collected 6 turn overs and they got that 0-4 (against the Giants in their new stadium) monkey off their backs.
Of course as quickly as there was promise, there was was despair. The Cowboys and their fans were crushed by a loss to the Kansas City Chiefs, a one point loss on the road to one of the league’s best teams so far this season. The Chiefs have a +27 point differential through two games and only beat the Cowboys by 1 point.
Former Dallas Cowboys full back and current NFL Analyst Daryl “Moose” Johnston went on The Ticket in Dallas to discuss the state of his former team.
From the Dallas Morning News:
On his thoughts so far on the Cowboys:
Johnston: “I think they can be good, but they can’t get hurt. They can’t lose games to starters; they don’t have the depth, and that’s what happened to them last year…. I don’t see why there’s a reason why they can’t be in a position to win the NFC East at the end of the season.”
Johnston’s point that they can still win the NFC East has some validity to it. All NFC East teams lost this past weekend giving the Cowboys some breathing room and still keeping them atop the division.
