Some Perspective

Former first round pick Steve Young had trouble following legend Joe Montana, and early in the 1994 season his "dream team" lost 40-8 to the Eagles at Candlestick, dropping his team to 3-2. Former first round pick and apparently mediocre QB Eli Manning throws four ints, three (3!) of which were returned for TDs by the Vikings ina 41-17 home loss, dropping the Giants into 2nd place in the NFC East. Of course, both QBs and their teams recovered to win Super Bowls in 1994 and 2007, and I am sure that other perenially hated QBs have managed to overcome in-season adversity to lead their teams to postseason glory. I'm not guaranteeing that Romo will pull a Steve Young or Eli Manning, or even that the Cowboys are serious Super Bowl contenders, but just noting for the record that things can change and individuals can find redemption. In this case, maybe even several times in one season! We have to admit, so far 2011 has all the makings of a potentially fantastic "America's Game"!!
