Dallas Cowboys Defeat Bucs: The A-Team Awards

Use your ← → (arrows) to browse

The H.M. “Howling Mad” Murdock Award is given to the player whose play might be deemed as a little mentally unstable. Their crazy actions could have caused the game to go either way, but in this case, it helped the team attain victory.

And the winner is…Wideout Dez Bryant. Raving on the sidelines like a crazy man? Check. Wanting the ball on every down? Check. Making the play that sealed the victory for the Cowboys? Check. Bryant was clearly frustrated on Sunday, as evidenced by his tirade on the sideline with wide receiver coach Jimmy Robinson. But he ended up recorded six catches for 62 yards and made a spectacular game sealing 44 yard punt return late in the fourth quarter. Amid his off-field troubles and immaturity issues, Bryant  proved Sunday that he can still be a game-breaker.  And that’s something this anemic Cowboys’ offense needs desperately.

    I think there should have been an award for Romo. The toughness he showed in the face of adversity to still manage to put up (283 yards 64.8 comp%) after taking 4 sacks, 1 of which a head shot that would have sidelined most QB’s for the remainder of the game, multiple hits, and no running game to speak of. No matter how bad the protection is (worst I have ever seen in Cowboys history this year) he still manages to make plays. You can say what you want about Dez, but Tony has to avoid the constant pressure in his face to get Dez the ball. He is dealing with Receivers quitting on plays, running wrong routes, multiple dropped passes, and an ungodly amount of drive killing penalties, but he puts his head down and continues to plow forward. Give this man a decent OL and he will be the league MVP.
