As we enter week 3 of the 2007-2008 NFL season, one thing has caught the attention of Cowboys fans in the last two weeks. The Boy’s high powered offense.
Now everybody knows that Wade Phillips is a defensive genius, but Big Wade has certainly brought a potent offense to Dallas, one they have been lacking since the 90’s. In the last two weeks, Dallas has scored a league high 82 points. Tony Romo has thrown for 6 touchdowns, 2nd in the league. Marion Barber has found the endzone 3 times, that’s tied for first in the league. Oh, and don’t forget about Terrell Owens, who has quietly scored 3 touchdowns. That’s good for 3rd in the league.
The X-factor to this offense though, may be Jason Witten. Witten shredded the Giants secondary in week 1, and made key catches in week 2. Give props to offensive coordinator Jason Garrett, who is utilizing the many weapons Dallas boasts on offense.
So, as the season rolls on, look for the Cowboys offense to keep on rolling, and put up great numbers.
* Special shoutout goes out to ESPN’s Mark Schlareth. Mark threw Dallas under the bus all off-seaon, and took shots at TO every chance he got. Now, Mark is jumping on the Dallas bandwagon, praising TO for his circus catches and commending Tony Romo for Pro Bowl calibur play. I do not welcome any bandwagoners, but Mark Schlareth would be the first person I’d shove off of it.
* I think I speak for all Cowboys fans when I say, what a wonderful sight it is to see the Philadelphia Eagles and New York Giants both at 0-2, and in the NFC East basement.
* Demarcus Ware is still without a sack, but look for him to have a good outing against Chicago’s JV offense.
* Tony Romo’s quarterback rating of 119.3 is 2nd in the league, behind one Tom Brady, who has an impressive 134.2 rating.
*Saw where the Cowboys signed former Bears defensive tackle Tank Johnson to play nose guard in the 3-4. I love this move by Dallas to give this guy a chance. He and Jay Ratliff should be quite the duo in the middle when Johnson returns.
