The prospect of the Dallas Cowboys falling to 0-and-3 on the season on Sunday has thrown many around Dallas into a sort of panic, but this panic doesn’t extend to the locker room at Valley Ranch, apparently. Linebacker DeMarcus Ware discussed the state of the team on Thursday, saying that, as of now, their disposition remains fairly sunny.
“I don’t feel any desperation at all,” Ware said, per ESPN Dallas. “I’m still smiling right now. You see the guys back there laughing and giggling. We’re still in this thing.”
According to Ware, the team believes this, and they have some historical backing in that regard. The 2007 New York Giants came back from an 0-and-2 start to win the Super Bowl. The Cowboys remember that well because, after a 13-3 regular season that year, they were bounced from the playoffs by those very Giants in the first round.
“There’s no desperation about this is the end of the season. It’s 0-2. I think the Giants started 0-2 and won the Super Bowl one year. That’s sort of behind me. Now, you’ve got to get some wins. We’ve got to beat Houston. We’ve got to get some momentum going.”
