Entering Sunday’s game against the New York Jets, quarterback Tony Romo did the unthinkable in the fourth quarter, as he misfired a pass that was intended for Dez Bryant and instead found cornerback Darrelle Revis.
Well, once again, Romo proved that he’s not exactly Mr. Clutch. He’s certainly not Tom Brady or Peyton Manning, but once again, the Cowboys begin another season losing under the “Sunday Night Lights.”
The Boys won the first three quarters, but slipped during the final 15 minutes, which allowed quarterback Mark Sanchez and kicker Nick Folk enough time to muster enough points for an exciting opening day win.
So, while the Jets and head coach Rex Ryan catch their breath, one has to wonder, what do the Cowboys do now?
Well, head coach Jason Garrett needs to do something, especially since his team cannot afford to begin their season [0-2] again, (ahem, last year). So, hopefully this particular game will inspire America’s Team to stop slouching in the final quarter. Perhaps this particular game will force the Boys to learn how to play the final quarter with a passion or swagger, but then again, they’re like the Boston Red Sox, who tug at their fans hearts, (zing).
Don’t get too discouraged Cowboys fans, especially since it’s only one game, yet, it’s OK to wonder if Tony Romo is the right man to lead this team? Seriously, the squad looks pretty banged up and definitely they’re some questions that’ll need to be addressed, but in the end, it’s just a game, so hopefully they can regroup and register their first win against the San Francisco 49ers.
If not, they’ll once again be in Jerry Jones’s “dog house.”
