A-Z of the Dallas Cowboys Season (Part Two)
August 23, 2015; Santa Clara, CA, USA; Dallas Cowboys tight end Jason Witten (82) warms up before the game against the San Francisco 49ers at Levi
T is for tweets
Twitter allows us minions to feel closer to the stars, able to look up to those we idolize and smack talk those we don’t! Often though it’s the celebrities or in this instance players allowing a glimpse of their sometimes fragile nature too!
After the Falcons game at the end of September, Terrance Williams tweeted (and then deleted) a rant aimed at fans:
"“Talk **** all you want about me all y’all want I’ll REMEMBER IT”"
Last season saw Cole Beasley vent, but it was another Beasley in action several weeks ago with his wife calling out fans who insulted the little 11.
All this in between Dez threatening to sit out the season if he wasn’t paid and Greg Hardy‘s bizarre decelerations via his Twitter profile, it’s been quite the year already!
U is for underachieving
See the letter S.
The aim was Super Bowl 50.
Anything shy of the playoffs would be a disappointment.
V is for victory
On Sunday Tony Romo reminded fans and the team just what victory felt like. The Cowboys are sitting at rock bottom of the NFC East with a 3-7 record. They’re not far off the pace setting New York Giants 5-5. A couple more wins and just maybe this can be looked back upon as a victorious season.
W is for Witten
It’s hard say anything about Jason Witten that hasn’t already been said or written. Last week, Witten played in his 197th consecutive game for the Cowboys.
"“When you come into this organization you learn real quick who Mr. Cowboy is, not just the way he played, but how he played.” – Jason Witten"
While that quote was from Jason Witten on the legendary Mr Cowboy Bob Lilly, you could easily apply the same sentiment to him.
In the games where Brandon Weeden struggled for receivers, Jason Witten was there. When Dez Bryant became frustrated at Matt Cassel’s inability to find him it was Witten’s job to calm him down. When Tony Romo returned and the Cowboys needed that elusive 3rd down conversion 82 was there.
The loss of Tony Romo and Dez Bryant through injury this season hurt this team. But that will be nothing to the day Witten hangs up his boots.
