May the man be right (via ESPN) Parcells: All’s well with Cowboys:
Parcells was pushing the theory that all is fine because the Cowboys already are in the playoffs, which means they have a chance to win the Super Bowl.
Plus, he optimistically noted, the NFC is as wide open as it’s ever been.
“No one knows what’s going to happen here,” Parcells said, offering to take a blind poll and predicting that all five teams that are in would get votes — and that as soon as the sixth team is decided, “somebody would vote for them.”
“The team that plays the best from here on out has the best chance. That’s the way I look at it,” Parcells added.
And he was only getting warmed up.
“What is the objective of the season? Tell me what the objective is,” Parcells said later.
Upon hearing the answer he wanted (win the Super Bowl, of course), he continued: “Now, are we going to have the opportunity to do that? How about 20 of the other teams that are sitting home. Are they going to have that opportunity? How about the other 20?”
Parcells essentially admitted he was adopting a new approach with this statement: “If I don’t have hope, then who has it?”
It is actually a reasonable attitude. However, something has to be done about the defense if his optimism is to have any significance. There is no doubt that the inability of the D to force more punts was the key problem in the last three games.
