Bracing For The Storm Before The Calm

It’s hard to believe that after a season that started out with such high hopes and expectations, the Cowboys final chapter comes down to the season finale.

It’s almost perfect that our destiny marches through the city of brotherly love, Philadelphia.

What better way to sharpen our skills, than to take out our angst against such a worthy rival; the Eagles…

As we prepare for the final regular season battle of the year, here is the latest on our injuries…

G Montrae Holland (ankle), QB Tony Romo (illness), and TE Jason Witten (ankle) have not participated in practice, and no official announcements have been made yet, but Romo says he will definitely play.

RB Marion Barber (toe), LB Bobby Carpenter (knee, calf), S Keith Davis (knee, neck), S Ken Hamlin (foot), CB Alan Ball (ankle), WR Isaiah Stanback (shoulder), and WR Roy Williams (foot) should all be ready for game time as well.

A win and the Dallas Cowboys will earn an NFC Wild Card berth.

It might get bloody, but in the end the Cowboys will find a way to end the regular season with an exclamation point and make the post season anyway… They just decided to take the scenic route to get there…

UPDATE: 12/25/08

Tony Romo, Marion Barber and Jason Witten all practiced today. This is grerat news heading into the biggest and final game of the season.
