Gosselin: Don't expect Cowboys to close the gap against Giants, Eagles next season | Dallas Cowboys News - Sports News for Dallas, Texas - SportsDayDFW
NY Giants. They're the Super Bowl champions. Cowboys play them twice per season. Will the Cowboys be able to compete with the Giants in 2012?

Rick Gosselin: I'd keep the Giants and Eagles both ahead of the Cowboys again in 2012. The Giants get their best cornerback back -- Terrell Thomas missed the 2011 season with a training camp injury -- and the Eagles added two more top-shelf college pass rushers (Fletcher Cox and Vinny Curry) to the best pass rush in the NFL. The Cowboys were 0-4 against those two teams last season and don't see where the Cowboys closed the gap much.
