    Even though most experts predicted you'd go 5-11, you not only made the playoffs, but won your division.

    Your defensive unit went from doormats to dominant in less than a year!

    You showed respect to even your most intense rivals.

    And embodied what it meant to play as a team on your way to a 12-4 record.

    Most of all, you never forgot the people who mattered most...

    ... and you always let them know how much you appreciated them.

    And they loved you for it!

    So don't be downtrodden, Cowboys.
