Have heard no reporting on either of these and am more than curious - both could have big impacts on our season:
1) Is TR's pinky OK?
He was not the same thrower after the injury than before, that much is clear and perfectly understandable. Also believe subsequent injuries - especially his back, had more impact in the final few games. However, there have been consistent reports over several sessions of off-target throws. Even the dreaded 'duck' was referenced if I recall correctly. As a former QB, I know if you can't grip the ball, you tend to 'push' it and that can result in some ugly throws
I haven't heard any mention of this by the media, coaching staff or Romo himself. Anyone ?
2) What kind of shape is M Holland in?
Both from a conditioning standpoint and recover from his injury (foot?). I believe the answer to our DEC swoon is some good old NFC East smash mouth football. What isn't discussed is that most teams passing stats decline late in the season - the cumulative effect of simply wearing down and cold/inclement weather, especially in the NorthEast.
I would think someone might make an observation as to simply how fat or out of shape he may or may not be. OLine depth is simply too important to go unmentioned.
Bonus question - do they put on pads for the upcoming mini-camps?
