Here it is the month of December and we have lost already, however this time it is under very different circumstances. Tony Romo had a career day in New York this weekend and nobody is giving him any credit at all. They are all focused on how the team lost. I just know sooner or later the loss will be blamed on him. This loss hurts really bad, and I think I might just know what the problem is. Hear me out on this guys.
Our team has a serious lack of athletes in the skill positions. Felix Jones is not the guy we drafted right now. Roy Williams, well he just plain and simple is not much of an athlete. Marion Barber is a bruiser but not very athletic. Tashard Choice has his spurts but nothing really big this year, besides the one run against Oakland.
We do have Miles Austin, who i believe will make his first Pro Bowl this season. But if you really think about it, all we have is Austin. That just isn’t good enough, not for this division, this conference, or this entire league.
We tend to get guys who give us flashes of brilliance and then make us say, “Just wait, IF he gets consistent this team will be good,” or “If it wasn’t for injuries, he would be special.” Why does our team seem to miss when it comes to players who are consistent and relatively injury free?
I said it last year, do not trade for Roy. Wait until the draft and get Percy Harvin or Hakeem Nicks. Well that idea is looking really good right now considering what they both are doing in Minnesota and New York. We need somebody else besides Austin and Witten (even Witten is not athletic, he is just very skilled) that the defense will be scared of. I can tell you right now, they are not afraid of our running game anymore. I can guarantee they are not because of the inconsistency.
The NFC East tightened up really quick after Philadelphia won in Atlanta. So next week if the Giants beat the Eagles and Dallas losses, there will be a 3-way tie for first place in the division with only 3 games left.
We need to step up and be champions for the next two weeks, vs. San Diego and at New Orleans. After that we play Washington and Philly again. We will be embarrassed again if we continue playing the way we are now.
I love the Dallas Cowboys with all my heart and I hate when I see them struggling and losing games they should win. It hurts. Somebody needs to step up RIGHT NOW.
