Cowboys facing ‘hard knocks’

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.
