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!
