That’s who these Cowboys are… A team so mired in mediocrity, that it can’t even realize how mediocre it is.
If you can’t beat the Kansas City Chiefs or the San Diego Chargers, what are your chances against the Seattle Seahawks, the Denver Broncos or the New England Patriots?
For the second straight loss on the road, Jason Garrett couldn’t adjust after halftime. Tony Romo’s offense did nothing after throwing a second touchdown pass to Dez Bryant. We had to wait to be down by 9 in the fourth quarter, to start moving the chains.
But I don’t want this to be an indictment on rookie Terrance Williams, responsible for two turnovers already in the season. He did his best trying to get into the end zone, but it was just one of those plays.
The fault here goes to Tony Romo, absent for most of the game, and Jason Garrett who just seem to be outcoached every second week.
I don’t think a John Gruden, Sean Payton or Andy Reid’s team gets outplayed in second halves like the Cowboys have had in their two losses.
Next week comes Peyton Manning to town with their record-breaking Broncos, and suddenly the Washington Redskins or the Philadelphia Eagles could be at the top of the NFC East after 5 games in the season.
The thing here is that no matter how much talent you have, Jason Garrett and Tony Romo won’t take this team to the promised land.
They might be good enough to win a game or two, just to lose the next one or two. And that’s how you end up with consecutive 8-8 records, and another disappointing 2-2 start.
Last Saturday, I welcomed everybody “to the annual Dallas Cowboys Fans’ emotional Roller Coaster” and I just don’t know what else to add to that…
