A Fan's Rant

More

It's really hard for me to watch this hit (which is completely clean) on Tony Romo and not be a little pissed at Jerry Jones. There is the obvious flouting of football convention by Jerry Jones, in ignoring a decaying offensive line, and going so far as to cut starters without signing replacements. But more than that there is the assembling of what must be called a dumb team, one that celebrates after touchdowns (still), commits stupid penalties, and, most crucially, blows assignments.


I guess it should be noted that the fullback, apparently, missed a block. Whatever. A lot of people have been calling for Romo to sit. I would not be surprised if Kitna won a few games. But overall, I strongly suspect that this season will not be pretty.
