The identity of the Dallas Cowboys is a work in progress. Are the Cowboys the gutsy team that won in overtime at San Francisco, handing the 49ers their only loss, or the wobbly one that collapsed down the stretch against the New York Jets and Detroit Lions? Is Tony Romo an asset, a liability, or both? Is Jason Garrett the right coach to lead them where they want to go?
