Tell me if this sounds familiar to Cowboys fans … Tony Romo and the game look flawless moving into the red zone and then, once there, you might as well cue up the Yakety Sax as the Cowboys look more like a junior varsity squad than a Super Bowl contender.
And you do not have to be a Cowboys fan. This team can be maddening to fantasy players.
Romo looked great directing the Cowboys on the team’s first drive. TE Jason Witten and Miles Austin had a couple of nice catches. But again, once they got into the red zone, there was a sack, futile screen and then another sack with a fumble, which the Cowboys recovered. Squandering these fantasy opportunities will be no laughing matter when the regular season starts.
But on the bright side Cowboys fans, you got a chance to watch David Buehler kick a field goal. And with the way the Cowboys have looked in the red zone so far this year, he might be the best fantasy player of the lot.
