Dak Prescott's 'Golden Year' with Cowboys Destined for Disappointment

There isn't an NFL team that enters each and every season with loftier expectations than the Dallas Cowboys. A winning record isn't good enough. Neither is claiming the NFC East. It's Super Bowl or bust.

After winning the division only to get bumped from the postseason in the Wild Card Round last year, the Cowboys have Texas-sized aspirations in 2022 as well. But while quarterback Dak Prescott has expressed optimism that this is "the golden year" for the franchise, that shine is actually pyrite.

This isn't a team that's better than last year's iteration. Or one that has what it takes to beat the NFC's best in the postseason.
