A Very American Coup By Michael – Louis Ingram, Editor-in-Chief...
Another Cowboy’s collaspe
NORTH CAROLINA (BASN)-They say, “the stars shine the brightest in the darkness.”
Well, after their devastating lost to the Detroit Lions 31-30 last Sunday, the Dallas Cowboys are walking on the edge of the earth once again.
Even though they are currently in first place in the NFC east with a mediocre 4-4 record at the midway point, the big money Texas billionaire, owner Jerry Jones, continues to be haunted by his team’s uncertain future.
This time, however, in wasn’t Tony Romo’s fault.
He, shockingly, played a mistake free-game.
Unfortunately, Monte Kiffin’s 4-3 defense, despite creating five turnovers, couldn’t stop Lions’ WR Calvin Johnson, who collected video-game type numbers against his secondary by gaining 329 yards on 14 catches and a touchdown. Johnson’s total, in fact, trailed only the 336 yards receiving Flipper Anderson had for the Los Angeles Rams against New Orleans on Nov.26, 1989 in a game that went into overtime.
The Cowboys, fortunately, should be able to rebound from this disappointing lost to the Lions with “a sure victory” over the (1-6) Minnesota Vikings, who are playing musical chairs at the quarterback position, this week.
But, there really are no guarantee victories in the NFL.
It is a game to game league.
Besides, you never know if the stars are going to come out and play in Dallas.
Plus, with Dez Bryant’s isolated sideline shouting matches captured on camera, which was reminded many of T.O., being viewed as angry instead of passion, who really knows what the Cowboys will do this Sunday.
