All of the hype heading into last season was about how the Dallas Cowboys were going to turn the Super Bowl into a home game. With that kind of talk going on, expectations for fans basically became "Super Bowl or Bust."
After a 1-7 start and the loss of quarterback Tony Romo to injury, the verdict was in loud and clear that the season had, in fact, been a bust.
