Both the skins and boys had their bye-week before they played each other, both teams came off disappointing losses (NY and Pit). Both coaches gave their team time off during the bye week. WP gave them a 3-day weekend and Zorn gave his team the entire week off. I feel that Zorn did this because they were pretty beat up after playing Pit (everyone usually takes a physical pounding) and it was not done as a reward. At this time the skins had a good shot at a WC spot as long as they keep winning games. Dallas as we all knew was in a tougher spot due to their records (div, conf, head-head); but it was WP that received the criticism for giving his team time off instead of the other coach who gave more. I would like to know from anyone who reads this to tell me if they had seen any articles questioning the decision that Zorn made may have cost them the game. I gurantee you that if dallas had lost it would have been one of the main topics at BSPN and would have been talked about for at least a couple of days. I wrote this post because some of us did not even know that this happened and it also lends some perspective to how much more pressure the team is under because it is always under the microscope and its owner hasn't bought up all the regional media to keep criticism hushed about his team. An example of this microscope would be how people are analyzing Romo's deed with the homeless man. They are discussing it like it was something that he disclosed like he wanted the attention, reading the article he did not want this getting out. But msm will take it and find ways to distort it and downgrade it, when he did not want it covered, so what point does it accomplish to talk about something he wanted to keep private? Romo could help an old lady across the street and the local media will write a story about it, everything this team does is up for analysis. Below is a link to Matt Mosely confirming that Zorn gave his team the week off, rant over.
