But if the Cowboys are going to win this Sunday – indeed, any Sunday – then they’re going to need excellent play from their quarterback. The defense suddenly can’t stop anyone, and the running game is unreliable at best.
So once again, it looks as if this season will come down to Romo. And if Romo’s going to be effective, he’ll need to take a page of out Baloo the Bear’s book and ignore the chattering imbeciles in the treetops.
Romo has always made his team better. He’s he one thing standing between Cowboys fans and a long, disappointing string of 4- and 5-win seasons. Dallas has a quarterback who on any given Sunday can go toe-to-toe with Peyton Manning. That’s a rare skill set – one that, with the right accoutrement, can win a championship.
It starts this Sunday, at home, against a desperate division opponent. It’s as must-win as an early October game can be. Romo can give his team a chance to win, but he can’t block, he can’t catch, he can’t tackle and he can’t cover kickoffs.
Football teams win football games.
Don’t believe me? Ask the Bandar Log, and they’ll tell you the same thing… About Tim Tebow, anyway…
