Hi all! Well, I intended for this piece to be a weekly article after every game, but school's been in the way, and as much as I would like to say that this is more important than my school, I know that's not the case. Well, they don't call us the Cardiac Cowboys for nothing. Again, we took a game to the limit--and then some. Winning 27-24 against the Steelers in overtime? Such a thrill. I guarantee we will cause a heart attack somewhere if we haven't already. Anyway, without further ado, here are the Things I Think.
1. Dez Bryant is Balling.
It's no secret I'm a Dez fan, but this really has been a breakout year for Dez. As much attention as he has received, I don't think you guys realize how good he is right now. He's 10th in the league in yards. 3rd in TDs. He has 10 TDs over the season. To put that in perspective, he has double the number of TDs Megatron has. He leads Andre Johnson by 6 TDs overall. That's otherworldly. He already has 1,087 yards.
2. Defense is being held together by the Force.
I have no idea how he defense held the Bengals to under 20 points. I don't know how they stopped the Steelers twice late in the 4th quarter. All I know is that they've been playing very very well, and at least some of the credit should go to Rob Ryan. Give the man credit, he's done his job. I guarantee you he's doing the best he can possibly do, and that's probably better than any other D coordinator. We need him back next year, along with the secondary coach, linebackers coach, and even the D line coach. They're all doing an excellent job.
Well, those are the things I think. What do you think?
