I’m shocked at how the excitement level hasn’t ramped up all that much among Cowboys fans after back-to-back invigorating wins for the team. I look here and on other Cowboys sites and it’s about as exciting as watching paint dry. How come? Where’s all the “True To The Silver And Blue” fans and bloggers that used to come out in full support for America’s Team?
I just don’t get the lack of enthusiasm especially when the Cowboys, the team I love, is only one game away from taking over first place in the NFC East. I guess I expected more enthusiasm from Cowboys fans. It’s too quiet around here.
For those of you still reading, here’s the latest news from the Cowboys beat:
- When the Cowboys signed wide receiver Laurent Robinson before the start of the season, I can honestly say that I didn’t know much about his game or what he could have brought to the team. Robinson has been more than just a reliable third receiver. He functions well as the No. 2 guy. Robinson has come in, learned the playbook and been super productive. Robinson runs nice routes and adjusts well to the ball on the move. More importantly, he has become a target that the quarterback feels very comfortable throwing the ball to in any situation. ~ ESPN Dallas
- Lets hear it for Tony Romo! The Cowboys quarterback posted the highest Total QBR of any NFL quarterback so far in Week 10. Romo’s mark of 99.3 is also the highest recorded by any quarterback so far this year and the third highest by any quarterback since 2008. Only Cincinnati’s Carson Palmer (Oct. 25, 2009) and Philadelphia’s Michael Vick (Nov. 15, 2010) have had higher single-game QBRs during that time period.
- Remember that other running back I used to call Mr. Glass? You all know him better as Felix Jones. Well Cowboys coach Jason Garrett is hopeful that Jones will return from his ankle injury and start to practice this week, maybe on Wednesday. As for who is the official starter, Garrett refuses to address the purple gorilla in the corner. “We just want to get him back into action,” Garrett said. “He’s been a really good football player for us the past few years. A dynamic player both in the run game and the pass games. We just want to get him some touches.” When asked to elaborate, Garrett said, “Don’t have a specific plan for him.” Good coaches make tough decisions, weak coaches dance around the tough ones. Come on Garrett, man up and tell it like it is. DeMarco Murray IS the everyday back and WILL NOT give way to Felix Jones when he returns. So let it be Witten, so let is be done! (Sorry Rob, I had to steal that line from you!)
As for the rest of you, lets get pumped up and show some of that COWBOYS PRIDE! It feels like a damned morgue in here lately.
We’re playing the Redskins this weekend… I hope we scalp them!
