On Sunday the Dallas Cowboys take the field once again in another must win situation. This time they are playing San Francisco. The Cowboys got the win on the road last weekend against the Washington Redskin, but they are far from saving their season, on Sunday at noon with the 49’ers come to town, the Dallas Cowboys will have to put it all on the line if they want to keep their playoff hopes alive.
The San Francisco 49’ers are 1 and 2 under new head coach Mike Singletary, but that record does not come close to telling the whole story. The 49’ers are a much improved team under Mike Singlertary. They are playing tough hard-nosed football. He has made it his decree that San Francisco will be a tough minded team that can run the ball down opponents throats. To this point of the season Frank Gore has been a threat on the ground even when San Francisco is not performing up to par. In addition to Frank Gore, Mike Singletary turned the play calling duty over to Shaun Hill. With Hill back in the lineup he seems to have givin San Fran a spark. Hill does not have the strongest arm on the field, but he has done a solid job of managing the game. That is all the 49’ers are looking for right now, manage the game and let Frank Gore do his thing.
The last time the Dallas Cowboys faced a team that had recently undergone a coaching change it was the St. Louis Rams on the road earlier this season, and everyone remembers that game ended. The Dallas Cowboys will need to have their head on straight if they want to come out of the other side of this game with a victory. The Cowboys will have to match the 49’ers intensity if they want to win on Sunday. One thing that is for sure is Mike Singletary will have his players fired up and ready to play at 100% come Sunday, and if the Cowboys even begin to overlook San Francisco they can kiss Sunday’s game and the post season goodbye.
