Wow, I loved this game last week. Now we can look at the eagles and almost say we're even after knocking us out of the playoffs last year. I say ALMOST because we didn't knock them out of the playoffs with this. Beating them back to back though would make us even though I think. But anyway, I just want to make sure everyone gives the proper credit in this win.
First of all, I'll say that it is hard, and I emphasize HARD to shut a team out. Not a single point in the game? I mean even the Raiders (31st in scoring) weren't shut-out this season. Lots of Drops, overthrown balls, fumbled snaps, and a knuckling FG try that just happened to hook around the goal post at the right time. Cowboys played lights out, i'll give you that, but the Eagles laid an egg AND sat on it.
I expect the Cowboys to win this saturday again, as does most of the world, but Romo is right. Expect the eagles to come with every blitz in the book, plus the index and write volume 2 while their at it.
Just a belated side note though as an honest opinion of mine. Who cares about winning the first regular season game in your new stadium if you can come out and get to the super bowl in the same season and the team that beat you didn't even make the playoffs. Also, i'd much rather win the first PLAYOFF game in the stadium over winning the first SEASON game in the stadium any day.
