It's a dream come true for Jerry Jones.
The owner of the Cowboys builds the biggest and best stadium in the country.
That stadium hosts a Super Bowl.
And the Cowboys win it.
The first part of that dream has come true. Cowboys Stadium with its Texas-sized video board is the talk of the nation.
The second part is coming true. North Texas is hosting its first Super Bowl.
But winning a Super Bowl at home?
Check back with me in February.
No team has ever done that, but then, no owner has done what JJ has done.
Love him or hate him he gets results.
You could fill several books ripping Jones for his methods. Who else would fire a coach after winning back-to-back Super Bowls?
Jerry did that to Jimmy Johnson in the early '90s.
Jerry and Barry Switzer managed to win one more, but since then, times have been tough in Cowboy country.
Last season, the 'Boys finally managed to win their first playoff game this millineum.
Wade Phillips won his first-ever post-season game. Same for Tony Romo.
There's a feeling that the best is yet to come.
After all, the Cowboys are loaded for 2010. They are without question one of the favorites to get to the Super Bowl.
But favorites don't always come through.
No one picked the Saints to win it all last season.
Things can happen.
I see a problem for the Cowboys.
An injury problem.
Injuries are impossible to predict, but I do know this.
The Cowboys went through last season almost injury-free.
That rarely happens in the NFL and I've never seen it happen two years straight.
Injuries catch up with everyone, Cowboys included.
What will they do if Romo misses a few games?
Then, the soap opera will start.
The finger pointing will be magnified by a media that can't get enough of the Cowboys and controversy.
Terrell Owens tore this locker room apart a few years ago and losing the expectations game can do the same.
Are the Cowboys tough enough to beat the tough times?
Can they hang together if things start to fall apart?
They showed me a lot last December.
They overcame their annual late-season fade to finish strong.
They showed themselves they can do it.
This season, the Cowboys will show us all if they can have a dream season.
