After yet another mediocre finish. the Dallas Cowboys begin preparing for a long winter. Another several months of sitting in a proverbial corner, thinking about what they did. That's how Jerry Jones sees it (ESPN.com), and that is how a large Dallas Cowboys fanbase sees it.
Realistically (with maybe a dash of optimism), these Cowboys are right around the corner, and look to be a contender for years to come with the foundation that Jason Garrett is creating. The Dallas Cowboys won eight games this year, yet trailed in every single one. That's an NFL record that Jerry Jones won't be proud about, but it is something that can be pointed to for progress.
In 2011, the Cowboys trailed in 12 games, but only managed to win four of them. This shows that Jason Garrett is putting together a mentally tough roster that is able to compete late in games, even when down, to come back for a win.
Here is your 2013 schedule breakdown.
