Today's big win comes at a cost. And the field goal game

I was only able to HEAR the game on Sirius radio today but it sounded like the defense stepped up and made big plays when it needed to, which is unlike the Cowboys defense of the past decade. That is a very good sign. Jay Ratliff's overtime sack was huge but the Cowboys were able to press Alex enough to make every pass tough.

What scares me is the number of injuries. The Cowboys are in bad shape right now with injured players, and I read today that Terence Newman won't be back until after the bye.

I missed what happened to Romo.

Our special teams is awful and once again the Cowboys don't have a field goal kicker they trust. Missing a chip-shot field goal is just not acceptable in this league. It pains me to see just how bad the Cowboys field goal game has been since Nick Folk's rookie year (and go figure, Folk is a stud for the Jets now).

The Cowboys have something like 10 injured players and everyone on the offensive line at some point limped to the sidelines. I realize that there was a short preseason, but are the players this bad out of shape? Will this be an infamous, but memorable year in the NFL because of injuries? I hope not.

Beautiful comeback win, though. I am happy. The 49ers played tough.
