Now that we're all done with things like hanging out with the family, opening presents, munching on turkey or whatever and celebrating the spirit of Christmas, it's time to get back to the really important thing in life - FOOTBALL.
In just a couple of days we take on those hated birds from Philly, who really deserve to lose since they once booed Santa Claus and pelted him with snowballs. Sorry, can't help but to bring that up at least once a year. It's a win or else for the Cowboys and right now I can't even contemplate the or else. After coming into the season with so much confidence that this was going to be the season of the ‘Boys, a potentially disastrous campaign where we don't even make the playoffs is just too much to think about.
So I'm all about believing in the win on Sunday. It has to happen, it just has to. This game comes down to two things for me, protect Romo and then have Romo not make some of the poor decisions that can doom us. If those two things happen, with the way our defense has been playing in the last half of the season, we should walk away with a victory. (Shhh, I'm not even going to bring up special teams.)
Tony Romo returned to practice, which is good to hear. No damage done from missing one practice. Marion Barber was also out there splitting time with Tashard Choice, and Jason Witten participated but the reports are that he was not moving well.
At today's presser, which happened before practice, Wade joked about making Tony practice double today so he can catch up. What a funny guy. Wade also thought once Christmas morning is over they'll be focused on practice and the upcoming game. He mentioned Marc Colombo has played really well and that he's consistent, grading out well every game. He talked about his leadership in the locker room and the meetings and cited his physical play. Roy Williams is getting better with his foot according to Wade, but it's still a lingering problem, specifically as games progress, it gets worse.
On the subject of the Eagles, he expects them to play their best whether they're fighting for the playoffs or if they're already out of it.
