the Dallas who finished their season With a 28 21 loss to the Miami Dolphins Monday That seems a little strange making a toast to a team which just finished its worst season in a And before the day is t plan to hoist several Itll mean typing with one but that doesnt bother The Cowboys deserve Its Last year at this the Cowboys were and everyone Was in a blue This the Dallas wound up missed the playoffs for the first time since an 94 season in and things seem They should The Cowboys played well at the end of the They lost their last two but they could have easily won And they fought Last years team had no no Last years team beat people on sheer and folded the final three weeks of the season against good When talent alone isnt This the Cowboys decided to get It was a good thing they Had they tried to get by on the 1984 Robert Johnson Cowboys would have wound up they came out defense set the Defensive coordinator Ernie Stauntner put two safeties on the centers nose for a kamikaze Me sent combinations of cornerbacks and linebackers after the He played a fire drill making hurried substitutions once hed seen the offensive It didnt always but it unnerved some Green Bays Lynn

Joe one of the leagues most mobile was sacked eight times in Dallas 3028 loss to the Lets also give a little credit to the much maligned and to the battered of tensive that with two starters gone and

best They played quarterback roulette this They might take a Danny White an experienced a proven Had Frank Kush stayed as head the trade might have been even more since White flayed for Kush at Arizona But theres the If Dallas is serious about a it might take White to get a top draft Although he lost some of his trade valite this White is still a Hogeboom is an unknown Dallas needs a good top to Last years draft was pretty but itll take another one to continue rebuilding And an injuryfree year wouldnt Both White and Hogeboom were banged up much of the Tony the Cowboys only deep separated a shoulder and missed six Offensive linemen Jim Cooper and Howard Richards missed the second half of the Coopers injury coming when he slipped in a nightclub and broke his The defense wasnt Middle linebacker Bob Breunigs bad back forced him and his career is probably Safety Bill Bates was hurt in preseason and missed several Linebacker Billy Cannon the top draft jammed his neck in
