So what now, Cowboys?
Losing seven games straight, the Cowboys walked into Miami with their almighty quarterback Tony Romo back in the line up destined to save the season. Romo did indeed get the job done, until four days later when the undefeated Panthers came to town. The Cowboys then hit an offensive brick wall and Romo goes down, again, for good this time. So what now, Cowboys?
The Cowboys season can now be said to be over, right? Romo is done for the year, what chance do the Cowboys have to make the playoffs?
So what now, Cowboys?
With the face off with the division leading Washington Redskins in Washington Monday night, The Dallas Cowboys have two options. One, they can go into Washington, play as a team despite the recent adversities and win the game, Or two they can let their season go down right along with Romo. We all know Romo is the quarterback of this team, and he makes everyone around him better, but Romo will not return this season. Every player in the locker room has to contribute to a season turn around in order for that to happen. There is still hope.
The reality of the division this year is that none of the teams are doing that great. The Redskins are only 5-6, with the Giants at 5-6 as well, and the Eagles at 4-7. The Cowboys are 3-8, just two games behind the division leading Redskins. They have enough talent, enough experience, and a good enough coaching staff to make something happen this season. It is not too late but Dallas will have to step it up. With that being said, of course, that will have to start with the quarterback, and the quarterback has to win.
The Boys’ released Weeden when Romo came back from the injury, so now the only two quarterbacks they have on the roster is Matt Cassel and now Kellen Moore who was just promoted to the active roster. In order to save the season Dallas will need a quarterback who can get wins. We have seen Cassel the past few weeks before Romo’s return, coming up just short of the win each time. That is not enough. Although, Cassel had a nice 80-yard drive when he came into the game vs the Panthers topping the drive off with a TD but by then the game was considered over. Cassel might be comfortable enough with the offense now that he can get the job done. If he can not, the Cowboys should not hesitate to go to Kellen Moore and give him a shot. He played well coming out of Boise State and looked solid in the preseason for Detroit. Maybe Cassel is familiar enough with the offense now that he can produce a little more than he was the previous weeks. Either way, what do they have to lose at this point? If Cassel can’t get the wins needed then its time for Moore.
Whatever the Cowboys do, they will have to do it fast. The Redskins are coming off a big divisional win against the Giants last week and are pretty good at home this season. It might be strange to say this late in the season, but the playoffs are still within arms reach and the season can be saved. It is up to the quarterback, the team and the whole organization to come together and make a historic run at the playoffs starting Monday night in Washington. Romo’s season is done, but The Cowboys season is not. It can be done.
So what now, Cowboys?
