Dale Hansen: What's next for the Cowboys?

Do you think the Cowboys still have a chance to go to the Super Bowl this season?

If the Cowboys' season isn't already over (and it's not), it is close, though.

This team isn't dead. It's like the patient who has the doctor call the family together, tell them it's time to get their affairs in order, and decide when they're ready to pull the plug.

Lose at Houston next week — and in this week-to-week league they probably won't — but lose in Houston next week, then we'll announce where you can view the body and send your flowers.

But it's that week-to-week league you need to remember.

The Giants were 10-6 just a couple of years ago, ready to fire their coach and give up on a young quarterback who would never win.

Then they win a Super Bowl, beating a New England team that hadn't lost.

It's a different league now; a different game; and a game the Cowboys don't play very well right now.
