It’s here! The dreaded month of December. This is the month the main stream media claims Dallas’ quarterback, Tony Romo, “chokes”. To be honest, it’s the Cowboys team not just the quarterback that fails to put it together in December. However, this team feels different. So the question comes up can this Dallas Cowboys team run the table in the month of December and go 4-0?
The answer is a simple, of course they can! Dallas has a feel to them, from a fans perspective, that they can win and they want to win. Not to mention the statistics are in the Cowboys favor as three of the four teams they play in December are at or below .500. With Jason Garrett’s team playing better against .500 or below teams and the new found maturity of quarterback Tony Romo, this team has a good chance of making the playoffs for the first time since 2009.
Not to play the realistic fan card or devils advocate, but this is still the Jerry Jones general managed Dallas Cowboys and the December record still lurks in the back of our minds. The dedicated fan-base waits on bated breath for the shoe to drop and the Cowboys of old to make an appearance. Once again, as it has been for so many years, the Cowboys truly control their own destiny to getting into the playoffs.
The Chicago Bears games on Monday night will be a telling sign as to how the Cowboys decide to finish out the season. They will go into Chicago facing a 6-6 Bears team without their starting quarterback, Jay Cutler. Although the weather Monday night in Chicago is calling for cold temperatures, the Cowboys proved against the New York Giants, in a very cold New York City a few weeks ago, they can bring what it takes to beat a cold weather team at home. Unfortunately, this is going to be another must-win game especially because a very hot Philadelphia Eagles team is playing a very inconsistent Detroit Lions team. If the Cowboys can beat Chicago on Monday night there is hope they can go 4-0 in December and finally not have to wait for a win or get in scenario at home versus Philadelphia in week 17. If they can’t the playoff hopes aren’t over, but let’s just say the Cowboys need to have a good December and leave it at that.
