Paging NFL Films. Calling Steve Sabol. Any way you guys, with all your cameras and microphones, can get back to Dallas now? Now the real drama in the Big D is beginning.
These days, the Cowboys are giving new meaning to Hard Knocks.
They’ve lost their star quarterback Tony Romo to a broken pinkie finger, their prized rookie running back Felix Jones to a slightly torn hamstring, their capable backup receiver Sam Hurd to a high-ankle sprain, their Pro Bowl punter Mat McBriar to a fractured foot, their Pro Bowl cornerback Terence Newman to a groin tear, and their confidence to the Arizona Cardinals.
Who is going to be Jessica Simpson‘s Sunday now?
The Cowboys head coach, Wade Phillips, is fighting with local reporters; their talented and troubled cornerback Adam Jones is in trouble again. And we haven’t heard a peep from wide receiver Terrell Owens in a good solid week.
The more compelling the Cowboys are, the more intriguing this league is. And right now, it doesn’t get much juicier.
Down in the Big D, it’s a new version of what the team experienced this summer. It’s Hard Knocks Two.
