Cowboys Nation just got knocked out. This time maybe, sadly, for good.
Denver Broncos. Devastating.
Detroit Lions. Heart attack.
Green Bay Packers. Death.
For fans, it’s understandable if they leave. If they give up. If they look elsewhere. Permanently.
Because this, this was a little too much to swallow: 26-3 half-time lead on a day when the Eagles, Giants, and Redskins fell.
Because it was Dallas, who chose to toss the ball when running back DeMarco Murray was averaging over seven yards a carry, ending the day with 134 yards rushing and four catches for 19 yards.
And he could have added more. But unfortunately, Murray doesn’t have a hand in the play calls.
DeMarco Murray was the hot hand. The force was with him. This third round pick. He had the force in Chicago, last week, too.
Yet over, and over, and over again fans watched as the Cowboys continued to test Green Bay’s defensive backs knowing their rush defense ranked 25th in the league. There was no reason for it. It wasn’t cute, interesting, or smart, or whatever.
The roller coaster flew right to left, up and down, when it should have gone straight down the field with Murray behind the wheel.
That much was obvious; even a four-year old got it. Well, at least folks on Twitter do.
