First off, I’d like to give a huge shoutout to my boy Bryon in Houston, Texas. He’s the only person I know that is as much of a Cowboys fan as I am. He does a weekly video blog about the Boys on YouTube that is quite entertaining.
I was so proud of our Boys yesterday! They played an amazing game aside from some silly penalties. What impressed me the most was their defense. They totally shut down the Eagles offense and didn’t allow any points! They kept the pressure on McNabb and even recovered one of his fumbles.
And of course, I have to give props to the man……Mr. Tony Romo! He has been playing so well the last few weeks and all doubts I had about him are GONE. My only concern is the hit he took today when he hurt his back. Personally, I think they should have taken him out of the game right then and had Kitna play. The game was over by then so there really was no need to keep Romo in. But, Tony is a stubborn one and I think he stayed in to show the Eagles how tough he is and that he wasn’t seriously hurt…..hope not anyways!
There’s a lot of talk going on now about whether or not the Cowboys can do a 3 win sweep against the Eagles since they play again next week in Round 1 of the playoffs. I say heck yes they can! The Cowboys have been playing some of the best ball I’ve seen in recent years and they showed those nasty birds just how tough they are today. The Eagles love to blitz and yet they weren’t able to put much pressure on Romo at all. If they can’t do that, there’s no way to stop Romo from doing what he does best.
I was also quite impressed with Jason Witten today. He showed why he’s considered one of the best tight ends in the league. And how amazing is Miles Austin? That man is just on fire! You also got to appreciate Crayton, Barber, Jones, Ogletree and everyone else that made key plays. We haven’t really seen a lot from Patrick Crayton lately and yet he made some awesome catches today and scored a touchdown. The other Dallas TD was on an impressive run by Felix Jones. Suisham also put 3 points on the board with a field goal.
Who would have thought that the Cowboys would have back to back shutouts? That’s the first time in the team’s history! Revenge is so sweet….
