Last week was all about good vibrations.
You had Tony Romo practicing without pain, and T-New running sprints and looking like his old self.
Then of course we had the culmination of all those positive signs resulting in a dramatic win over the Redskins.
Suddenly, the Cowboys were back in the race to the post season and everything is looking fine.
But just when we put all our worries away and stashed them back into our cluttered closets, the shelves have just collapsed and a shit-load of useless garbage comes pouring out…
(I’ll stop calling him Pacman, when he stops acting like Pacman, and when I’m damn good well and ready to stop calling him Pacman, thank you very much!)
You know, I hate to be the one who says I told you so, but I did tell you so.
Pacman is now eligible to be reinstated this week, and is simply waiting for the commissioner who has yet to rule on his situation.
Perfect… I bet Wade, Romo and the rest of the team can’t wait to get Pacman’s sorry ass back on the field so he can continue to deliver what he has been ever since he got here…
NADA, ZIP, ZERO, ZILCH!
His distraction has been, and continues to be a heavy weight that has become too much to bear.
The negativity that surrounds him and the black cloud the follows him has become like a cancerous tumor that begs to be removed.
Rather than focusing on the San Francisco 49ers, all of the coaches and players are having microphones shoved in their faces with the prevailing question, “What will the return of Pacman mean for the rest of the team?”
I’ll tell you what it means…
It means the same thing I said back in May,
“While the Cowboys seek to win a championship this season, the back pages and the big story may not be the team, but instead the ongoing Pacman drama that is expected to last well into the season and beyond.”
And back in April,
“Pacman is the last thing the Cowboys need right now. Adding such a bad influence to a team who is trying to recover from a second straight disappointing finish to their season is bad news. What this team needs most is another hero, not a thug.”
I still stand by those statements.
