A record of 8-8 just won't cut it anymore for the Dallas Cowboys. It is time for them to get over the hump and into the playoffs.

However, like any team, the Cowboys have flaws they will have to cover up. Teams that make the playoffs or even the Super Bowl are not without defects; they just do a better job masking them than other teams.
