Thanks for checking in for this Dallas Cowboys Get Real chat to cover the wreck that was their 34-18 loss at home against the Chicago Bears on Monday night. Don't worry, it was actually much worse than the final score indicated.
Post your comment underneath and we can begin a discourse.
THE COWBOYS COULD EASILY FINSH 0-5 IN THEIR NEXT FIVE GAMES: You do the math on this:
10/14 at Baltimore (3-1) One of the best defenses in the NFL and now a competent offense with Joe Flacco and Ray Rice.
10/21 at Carolina (1-3) All depends on which Cam Newton shows. The Cowboys should win this one.
10/28 v. NY Giants (2-2) It's a home game, so the Cowboys can't lose it. They beat the Giants in New York, so they can do it. But Eli owns Texas Stadium, Cowboys Stadium, etc.
11/4 at Atlanta (4-0) This may be a closer matchup than you think. The Falcons are good, but very beatable.
11/11 at Philadelphia (3-1). No way.
BEST CASE: The Cowboys use the bye to finally get healthy and see Jay Ratliff, Anthony Spencer and the rest return. They are not going to win in Baltimore, but they can go 3-2 in this stretch, which would be cause for a party.
WORST CASE: The team falls apart and does not win a game.
LIKELY CASE: They squeak out a pair of wins to finish 2-3 in this stretch, thus creating the teasing possibility that they can actually make the playoffs.
