What a ride this year has been for Cowboys fans. Especially as no team has ever made the playoffs after a 3-5 start. Now, the fun part. We get to see Cowboys fans react to making the playoffs!
Before we jump in let us look back at all that’s gone down. Jason Garrett has been on and off the hot seat virtually the entire season. With the most games coached in Cowboys history and very little to show for it.
Fans react to Jason Garrett
Alright Jerry Jones you either fire Jason Garrett or lower the beer prices at AT&T stadium, because 1 playoff win in 8 seasons as the head coach is unacceptable but 3 beers for $30 is a fucking felony

Instead they fired their offensive line coach:
Within a week the Cowboys:
– Traded for Amari Cooper
– Fired Paul Alexander
– Promoted Marc Colombo
– Brought back Hudson Houck
Give them credit for making moves – and acknowledging their own mistakes – with a division up for grabs. https://t.co/4AnN8f0InU

So Jerry Jones moved to action, trying to secure the best talent for next season, he went out and traded for Amari Cooper. At the time, many felt that giving up a first round pick would be disastrous. “This guy doesn’t want to play football”, experts said.
Reviews were (umm) mixed(?):
The fact the entire MNF broadcast crew believes Dallas won this Amari Cooper trade is mind boggling to me

Jon Gruden made the worst trade of the year by sending Khalil Mack to the #Bears
7 weeks later…
Jerry Jones, hold my beer, I’m getting Amari Cooper & his 46 yards per game and his 0.16 TD’s per game this season to fix our passing attack #HotBoys

Now people seem a bit more excited about it:
You’ve done a great job over the past few years. The Cowboys roster is full of home-grown talent. The Amari Cooper trade was a stroke of genius! With that said, PLEASE don’t drop the ball on this one! It’s time to open up the checkbook! #DallasCowboys @realjerryjones pic.twitter.com/NM9n4XEQDy

Now that the Cowboys finished 10-6, locked up the NFC East, and face the Seahawks in the first round, fans are showing their excitement.
How Bout Them Cowboys?!

What’s your prediction? Will the Cowboys advance? If they don’t is this season a failure?
