The DFW Sports Mix By. Don Arnick
Watching the Cowboys-Jets game is like watching the Mavericks during the post season run this year. The fourth quarter says it all. Tony Romo looks like LeBron James, and the Cowboys fell apart like the Mavericks in game four against Portland. The Cowboys had no business losing this game, because everything was going right the entire night. On a day that all American paid tribute to the 10 year anneversary of 9-11, this game was a golden opportunity that the Pokes let slip away.
Three plays did the Cowboys in, and Tony Romo was in on two of them. The fumble caused by him going a extra yard to get a touchdown, and the Christmas gift interception to Daryle Revias. In a season which experts picked the Cowboys to lose this game, in some weird way was a chance to steal this one. And in some weird way, there was kicker that wanted in the end to win for redemption. Former Cowboys kicker Nick Folk had the last word in this game. His 50 yard kick was the difference as the NY Jets beat the Pokes 27-24. Now everyone is questioning Tony Romo’s leadership, which has the fans here wondering where is the leadership. Yes your quarterback is your leader, he sets the tone for everything else. And to see your QB leader fail in the forth quarter is disheartening to the team and fans who witnessed the meldown in the Meadowlands. Hmmm…. that sounds like a movie title. And the Cowboys better find a way to make a winning plot to this 2011 season.
