Dallas Cowboys Secondary Flirting With History

No news is good news.

Let’s at least rejoice in that fact for now. Getting this bye week is definitely something that this team needed; especially after the spanking the Saints just gave this team.

A bye week is good for several reasons. It allows for last week’s bad loss to become a distant memory and also allows for many of our key players to get healthy.

While an eternal optimist I might be, even I am having trouble finding the silver lining in what looks to be a painful stretch to the finish. This division is easily winnable, and the rest of the Cowboys schedule is pretty weak, but for some reason the Cowboys are obsessed with the dramatic.

Lots of things seem to be going in the Cowboys direction; maybe for once they can just stay out of their own way.

My biggest hope is that all this smack talk going on about the secondary will light enough of a fire to at least get them angry. Brandon Carr can’t be pleased that people are saying he isn’t earning his contract, Mo Claiborne can’t be pleased that some are suggesting he’s a bust and soft, Barry Church can’t be pleased that he’s a forgotten name on possibly the league’s worst pass defense of all time, and let’s just hope that Jeff Heath is upset enough with himself to show up this time.

Jerry Jones didn’t make a move on Ed Reed or Michael Huff when they became available so it looks like we’re playing with the hand we got.

These guys can do one of two things which is either to shut up all the naysayers and find a way to get it done, or they can just go down in history for all the wrong reasons.

I hope for everybody’s sake they can pull off what seems impossible.
