The Life Of A Dallas Cowboys’ Fan
Lord knows I love the Dallas Cowboys. I really thought this was our year, even though the odds were against us. The team was playing with a depleted defense; a rookie running back and oh yeah, their franchise quarterback was on IR at the beginning of the season.
Who would have thought that the Dallas defense would play as well as they did and that a fourth round rookie quarterback would be in the conversation for league MVP? And even though everyone thought Ezekiel Elliott would be a good running back, he exceeded expectations.
The Cowboys finished the season with the best record in the league and earned a first round bye, but unfortunately that happened to be what lead to their demise. The Cowboys starters didn’t play much the last game of the season and with an additional week off, they just didn’t seem to have a good rhythm during most of the first half against the Packers. However the Packers got into a groove during the second half of the NFL season and continued to build on that in their first round win.
That may sound like an excuse but with a rookie quarterback it was obvious that Dak didn’t need that much time off between games. He actually played well overall and the Cowboys had every opportunity to win the game but Aaron Rodgers showed us why Stephen A. Smith refers to him as “That Bad Man”. He drove his team down the field with less than 40 seconds on the clock and crushed every heart in Cowboys nation.
Now the team is left with so many questions this off-season, most importantly, what’s do you do with Tony Romo? I don’t know what to think. I really wanted to see Jason Witten get a ring because I don’t know how many more years he has left. I wanted to see those rookies make history, and I just really wanted to rub it in the faces of all the Cowboys haters on social media. Oh well, I guess I’ll use the same tactic I use every year, try to convince them why next year will be our year.
