90s Cowboys are shocked by postseason drought

The Dallas Cowboys are going through a big postseason drought.  They would win just two playoff games over the next 18 seasons, and have gone 8-8 in three straight seasons. When asked by the Dallas Morning News if they expected this, a pair of former Cowboys players said they did not.

“I would have called him a flat-out liar,” former safety Darren Woodson said. “There is no way. There is no way.”

“Absolutely not,” said former fullback Daryl Johnston. “I would have never expected a franchise of that stature to go through such a lull.”

Needless to say, Cowboys fans didn’t expect it.

“It’s crazy what’s happened over 18 years,” Johnston said. “You expect a lull. But you also expect a spurt at some point.”

The Cowboys have stuck with head coach Jason Garrett giving him a chance to right the ship. If he fails to lead them to the playoffs next year the Cowboys could be looking for a new head coach.
