In week 7, I began to write a post with the same title about the Dallas Cowboys (after losing Tony Romo) and Tampa Bay Rays (when they went down 2-1 going back to Philly) being done. Now after a 33-24 loss to the Baltimore Ravens, the Dallas Cowboys are looking DONE.
After getting a bit shaken up on a penalty last week, Tony Romo definitely wasn't 100%. In the last game at Texas Stadium, we all know that Tony may be overwhelmed of the ex-quarterbacks shoes he has to fill in his future as a Cowboy. So possible his brain wasn't 100% also. They may not of had Marion Barber (the wimp in Jerry Jones' mind), but Tayshard Choice wasn't half bad. He ran for 90 with a touchdown and he went undrafted! Remember they had Romo who went for 252 and had 2 TD's and interceptions both to Pro Bowler, Ed Reed.
The Cowboys (9-6) now find themselves on the outside looking in for the final wild-card playoff spot. They will root for the Bucs, Falcons, Eagles to lose Sunday and the Bears to fall on Monday (almost impossible but you never know, they're the Cowboys). Then they'll need to take care of business Dec. 28 in the regular-season finale in Philadelphia, which in the cold sounds immposible after this game.
The only thing the Cowboys have to laugh at is that Witten and Owens both had 5 catchers. Owens went for 63 and Witten, 87.
