They may be 0-and-2, scrambling for answers and so bad hitherto that the head coach developed a case of insomnia as a result, but Gary Kubiak knows that the Dallas Cowboys or dangerous. Or, at least, that it would be dangerous to not think of them as dangerous, moving into Sunday’s showdown in Houston.
This is because Kubiak knows well how damaging a swollen head can be; he’s watched from the south as a group of them fell to 0-and-2 against a not-so-great Bears team last week. You’re sick of hearing this, but it’s true: the Cowboys are talented. A lot of teams are talented, in the NFL. So taking any win as granted, is very stupid; very 2010 Dallas Cowboys, if you will.
Aside from that, the Cowboys’ have--or should have, anyway--a chip on their shoulder. And a head coach who, according to rumors this week, may be fighting for employment in Houston on Sunday. For these reasons, Kubiak is intent on approaching the Cowboys like the wounded, but kind of talented dog that they are this weekend.
“They’re two plays away from being 2-0," Kubiak said, per the Fort Worth Star-Telegram. "That’s typical of the National Football League. They’re the same football team that’s loaded with talent that was starting the season and obviously they’re in a situation right now. I know they’re going to play great football when they come in here. We’ll have to be ready to go. We’ll have to play a lot better than we played [against the Redskins], I know that. But I don’t have to tell our players that."
