I just can't help but feel there is no middle ground this weekend. No "Hey we lost, but it was close and we'll get 'em next time."
No "Hey, we won, but it was close and we could do better."
Nope. Not this time. We go big, or we go home. That's my prediction. This game, I think, will go one of two ways:
Cowboys score early and often. We give up one big play to Jackson, and stumble and give up a big play on special teams, but our D-backs step up for the most part, D-ware and the Rat get a couple sacks each, and our offense is lights out. Miles has a 90 yard game, Roy gets in the mix to hush the Media, the trio in the backfield have a solid day, and Crayton gets us good yardage on all those punts that the D forces.
and then there's that other option...
Dismal. Remnants of last season's closing game. McNabb makes our D-backs look foolish. d-ware and Rat get shut out. Romo slips back into the turnover machine mode. Crayton fumbles the few punts we force.
Not sure why, I just feel like this won't be a "shoot out that;s decided on the last possession" like the NFL films guy said.
But, I could be wrong. And if I'm right, God let it be scenario 1.
