Default Cowlishaw: Cowboys-Texans matchup means much more to Dallas this time

On whether this is a bigger game for the Cowboys or the Texans:
Much, much bigger for the Cowboys. For the Texans, it’s more an emotional thing for their fans who hate Dallas. That’s big, I understand, but a loss would leave Houston at 2-1. They would go on and compete with Indy for the division or for a wild-card spot. A loss to 0-3 for the Cowboys ends their season before the bye week gets here. Devastating and humiliating.

I'm all for it!!!

Not only that, but it would leave the Texans at 3-0 heading into Oakland, the week before Cush returns..... I like it!!

I really REALLY would like to see that. Being 4-0 when the Cush returns would be just perfect.

Can't argue with that. The Cowboys have an approximate 65% likelihood of missing the playoffs. If they go 0-3, I believe it jumps to above 80%. Any team that loses their first 3 games is pretty much a death sentence.

I think one thing working in the Texans favor (besides Reliant Stadium being louder than it's ever been before) is the way we won each of our games. The first one being a really good game with proper execution and pretty much dominating it. There were definitely some hiccups and Indy's missed catches so it wasn't enough to have our players thinking they're too hot stuff. The second game against Washington proved to the team themselves that they should never quit. That they have what it takes to come back and win a hard fought game. Play 60 is our motto, they proved to themselves that they are a really good team. They won two completely different ways an I think that will only help going into this weekend.

I understand that being 0-3 puts you at a real disadvantage and gives you little hope for the playoffs, but with the NFC East looking wishy-washy this year, I think it would be possible for the Cowboys to lose and still be in the NFC East race if they could hand it to their division.

I think our team really has matured to the point that all they're focused on is Dallas. That anything can happen in any game. They're concentrating making themselves better and improving and not too worried about the other team... especially anyone past Dallas.

But you know what? We're fans... so we can do whatever we want!! Dallas then Oakland? Possibly 4-0. Cushing returns and we have the Giants and Chiefs both at home. As fans we have the privelage to look at this and think that we have a legitimate shot of being 6-0 going into our Bye week!!! Come out after that and we're at Indy on MNF. Daaang!

That's not a bad point. Their out of conference schedule is pretty tough though. Besides playing AT Houston, they play AT Minnesota, AT Green Bay and AT Indianapolis. In addition to playing Host for New Orleans.

It's a possibility.

Before the preseason, I had expected the Cowboys to go deep into the playoffs but after seeing how lazy and poorly coached they looked, I bailed on the Cowboys.

0-3 isn't going to totally kill the Cowboys. They've got enough talent to bounce back from that. I just don't know if they have the intestinal fortitude to do it. They haven't shown any signs of it so far.

Exactly right. And the sequence was important, too--better that they were a little ragged in their last game. Like someone else said, it'll be a good thing if Kubiak beats them over the head with that tape all week.

This is completely random, but I live in Wichita Falls (official secondary market of the Cowboys and former training camp site) and I hate Oklahoma so much it pains me that I'm 15 minutes away. This always reminds me of the episode of King of the Hill where Hank tries to get the Cowboys to go to Arlen instead of here.

Thanks for reminding me I'm so close to Oklahoma though, I appreciate it.

This is why I'd feel much better coming into the game if the Cowboys were 1-1.

Though Minnesota is struggling in a big way.
