I said in San Antonio at training camp the Cowboys would win 10 - maybe 11 with a little luck - and once again I’m proven right. This brings my total to 3 now in about 26 years … but you have to start somewhere.
The thing I like best about this cowboys team is they’ve had a chance to win every game … no blow outs like the giants have … no losses to a team like Oakland like the eagles have … No 17 point leads lost to a 2-12 team like the saints have … every game has been a play or 2 here and the outcome is different - which is the way it usually is in the NFL and I enjoy the heck out of it.
And I’m really enjoying watching a team that so many people thought was dead after losing to a very good chargers team … showing the character they have to clinch a playoff spot now … But there is this one little thing.
They lose that chargers game - in part - because Marion Barber can’t get a yard on 2nd .. then 3rd .. then 4th down - and it happens four more times against Washington.
He looks like a diesel pick-up truck on a cold morning trying to get started … he’s not moving fast enough to move the pile on a straight ahead run like they keep using … And as much as I hate to say it … I hate those plays.
I’m a strong believer that the only bad play calls are the ones that don’t work … and the only good play calls are the ones that do.
But come on - 7 times in two games - I’ve seen that play and IT’S NOT WORKING.
Up 14 - nothing against a team that can’t score … wouldn’t that be a PERFECT time to fake it to barber and then throw it to Jason witten and Miles Austin.
For gawd’s sake … don’t throw it to Roy Williams.
SEE YOU IN MIAMI!
