Well, I sure called that one wrong!  Offenses win games,  defenses win championships.  Never before have I seen such a glaring example of the old adage.

The most interesting thing about this year’s Super Bowl was how much I couldn’t help but feel like I was watching a Cowboy’s game.

A quarterback with no time to pass, scrambling to make something from nothing…leading to turnovers and bad decisions.  A defense not giving it’s offense a fighting chance, or much time to rest between series. 

Much credit should be given to the Seahawks, they were a better team than I thought they were.

Any of you who read my last article will remember that my prediction for the Broncos to win was based solely and Peyton Manning’s unrivaled ability and determination.  Now I’m not saying Romo is as talented as Peyton, but I had an undeniable sense of déjà vu watching Manning trying to overcome insurmountable odds.

I think that Romo was finally cut some well deserved slack this season, but perhaps we are still not giving him enough credit.

I can’t help but feel optimistic about what Tony could accomplish if we can sure up our offensive line and keep our defense healthy.

I feel we are taking steps in the right direction, but we need strides.  Here’s hoping this offseason’s draft and free agency takes a few bounds in the right direction, but with our always limited cap space…it puts too much emphasis on the draft to be optimistic about that.

    Defenses may win championships. But, if your offense can’t win games, what’s the good?

    Build a bigger, better, meaner, faster offensive wall that can move, block and knock people down and this Dallas team, with the talent it has in the backfield and at both wides, can win.
