I enjoyed perusing the Web for stories and blogs about this matchup this afternoon. Some from the Giants ilk are downright funny.
For example, read this one here. I love the “Use Kevin Boss to Exploit Roy Williams Coverage.” Kevin Boss? Are you freaking kidding me?
At Giants Bits, Derek boasts about the Giants 8-1 away record, but he fails to point out that one loss is to the Cowboys.
CowboysGab gives five keys to the Cowboys winning this game. I agree with him on the first point: the Cowboys must establish the running game. Giving Marion Barber the nod to start the game is a move in the right direction.
Jean-Jacques Taylor offers a short column on DeMarcus BeWare Ware.
Matt Mosley has an interesting blog up in which Terry Bradshaw offers advice to Tony Romo. Terry Bradshaw? Who is he kidding? Mosley says he has received 300-plus e-mails about the Romo-Simpson controversy. Unbelievable.
On this topic alone, I’ve received over 300 e-mails this week. Cowboys fans apparently believe Romo should have taken a vow of celibacy until after the Super Bowl, and that the very presence of Simpson could be destroying his focus. I’ve said from the start that nothing was inherently wrong with Romo and a couple of his teammates joining the Simpsons in Cabo San Lucas. Coach Wade Phillips told his players to get off their feet and relax for a few days, and judging by all those Internet photos, Romo, Witten and the less-heralded Bobby Carpenter were simply following orders.
We all found out today in an interview Deion Sanders did with Terrell Owens that it was Owens who sent Romo and Jessica Simpson to Cabo San Lucas, at least that’s what he claims. Owens said he paid for the mini-getaway because he felt bad about comments he made during a comical interview with Dallas Morning News troublemakers. Owens appeared determined in that interview. Get your popcorn ready, folks.
But Bradshaw doesn’t condone the trip.
For an athlete, there’s no time off … until it’s over,” Bradshaw told the Fort Worth Star-Telegram. “You don’t take a mental break. Tony is obviously different than me. He’s one of the young kids who wears his cap on backward. It’s cool. And God bless him. I like the heck out of Tony Romo. I just wouldn’t have done what he did. I couldn’t allow my mind to go there.
