The Dallas Cowboys lose a game and you'd think the sky was falling. They lost to the Philadelphia Eagles, who have beaten the Cowboys eight out of the last thirteen times they've played. Tony Romo is injured. TO is P.O.-ed, Jessica Simpson was there, the team is in disarray, and they're in some sort of free fall that will lead to them losing out and getting pummeled by Green Bay, in Green Bay, that will be that.
Oh the humanity!
Might I suggest that everyone just take a nice deep breath, and put the cyanide tablets down?
Tomorrow the Cowboys face the Carolina Panthers who haven't exactly been scaring the hell out of opponents this year. The Panthers have started more different candidates for quarterback this season than the Atlanta Falcons have scared away head coaches. They've won two games at home this season. The Panthers are simply not a very good team, and at worse, and the very worse, Dallas is.
I think I know what it is.
Last year Dallas melted down in that game against the Seahawks. Romo flat mishandled a snap that might, and let's allllll say it together now, might have won the game for them. Anyone else think that a chip shot field goal might get missed, but no, it's Romo's fault and that puts a monkey, albeit a small one, on his back.
It's stupid, it's way past stupid, to blame Jessica Simpson for last Sunday's loss. Are you out of your damn minds? If your starting QB cannot win a game because of some silicone enhanced bleach blonde alleged singer/rumored actress in the stands, you better start looking around for one who can. If Simpson in the stands rattles that man then playing the Packers in Green Bay, or the Patriots in the Super Bowl is going to make him come unglued enough for him to start stripping on live television and singing old Show Tunes.
Let's not blame this on Simpson, let's look for the real killer.
The truth of the matter is that nothing is wrong. They lost a game. Get over it. Move on. Even with Romo out, if he is out, Brad Johnson isn't a bad quarterback, and Dallas still has a good defense. If they lose Saturday, then you might want to start cleaning the bimbos out of the stands and seeing if that helps. But maybe you ought to duct tape your wide receiver's mouth shut, or maybe teach him how to catch a football or two.
Dallas wins this one by 14.
