Great Win? or Ugly Game?

Fist off, this is my first official fan post. Don't worry Ham I will make sure this is over a 100 words. I am sitting here fresh off the emotional roller coaster that is our cowboys team. Smile proudly worn ear to ear; voice horse from a mix of praying and cursing. My girlfriend sits next to me partially traumatized; even after 3 years she's still not used to the experience of a shared cowboys game. But 'm at ease now, I'm happy, I've just seen my team fight, claw, and scratch back to victory; and all I'm left thinking is wow what an awesome game.


Strange, right? This is a game that saw 6 fumbles, a pick, and 0 touchdowns. How can this ever be considered a great game, let alone a great win? Samantha looked at me like I had seven heads when I shared this opinion with her. It got me thinking. Was this  great win, or just an ugly game?

I really have to say this is more the former than the ladder. This is a team that clawed from the depths of despair, where a year later this team would have packed it in, and taken solace in the fact that at the end of the week they're picking up a pay check. 

This is a team where one there was a defense filled with players that would have surrendered the 4th quarter td, with payers that phoned it in last year. This is a team annually filled with more questions then answers. With a QB who "can't put the team on his back and win." This is a team that can't run the ball, and doesn't want to anyways.

This is a team that methodically answered all those questions tonight. This is finally a team that snatches victory from the clutches of defeat, who rises to the occasion when it would be easy enough to fall.

For another week this is a team that is proving it can shed the demons of old, and reinvent itself as a premier team in this league.

There are no more Almost Anthony or Tony Choko's, this is a team under Rob Ryan and Jason Garrett that is reinventing itself week by week. This is a team that I am proud to call my team, and a squad I am proud to stand behind.  So is this a Great win or just an Ugly Game? I guess its a little bit of both, and I'm ok with that.
