7-4. At 3-3, we all would have taken 7-4. And now we are there. The Cowboys find themselves in the driver’s seat for the NFC East Divisional Crown with their recent run of form. This team is good. And when they play teams that are not good, they generally get blown out of the stadium.
Here come the Bob’s Blog notes of review from Cowboys-Buccaneers:
• 5 Touchdown passes! And we all know he could have had 6 or 7 had his coach allowed him to throw a pass in the final 25 minutes of the game. Tony Romo is a guy who Darth Vader would say: “The Force is strong in this one”. That’s right. He is a Jedi. I spent last week saying he was special, but that doesn’t sum up his 5 games as the Cowboys starter. But, he is a QB Jedi. And no, I am no longer overreacting.
• Bruce Gradkowski is what you expect from a young QB. Some decent moments, but more than anything he misses wide open WRs. He missed Galloway at least twice with under thrown balls that bailed out Cowboys defensive backs. But that is what you expect from these young guys. They are not supposed to be as perfect as Romo has been.
• Speaking of Joey Galloway, was that his best game ever at Texas Stadium? 2 first rounders for Joey Galloway rates right up there with 5 years/$65 million for Chan Ho Park, Detlef Schrempf over Karl Malone, and Dallas announcing the Mavericks parade as the biggest sports mistakes in recent history in this city.
• Terrell Owens is afraid to get hit. There I said it. He is dropping balls. He is running out of bounds. And he is hitting the ground like a QB. He doesn’t want to get hit.
• Another week without any drastic developments in the kicking department. 11 games done, and we still have no idea if the Cowboys are prepared to win a game with a kick. Vanderjagt’s toughest kick was 22 yards. But, Jerry Jones did tell the pregame show that he was hitting his kicks in practice. Nice.
• DeMarcus Ware is the biggest no-brainer to be in the Pro Bowl on this team. I know his stats may not get him there, but he is the only real threat on the pass rush and they still cannot block him. He is a monster. And they hold him nearly every play.
• Marion Barber – Touchdown Maker.
• Who has the worst bit on Thanksgiving? Is it the ridiculous CBS police-escorted Thanksgiving trophy that nobody cares about? Or is it the Fox Turkey trophy that nobody cares about that they insisted on making viewers vote on. Incidentally, there is no way Fox was going to let the viewers vote it down. Both networks are trying to keep Tur-Duck-en alive. Madden is gone. Give it up!
• Romo has 10 Touchdowns and 2 Interceptions as a starter. Shocking.
• Roy Williams with another week that tells you he is worth the trouble. The dude may not cover well, but honestly, he has made high impact plays on a regular basis this season.
• The Giants now must go to Nashville, and then it will be time for the Cowboys and Giants to tangle. This is going to be fun.
I humbly realize that this is a shorter version, but I am taking today off for Aggies/Longhorns so I must now get back to morning yell.
