My story: The Cowboys arrive at their much-needed bye at a crossroads

It was like this all night for Cowboys QB Tony Romo (Associated Press)

It was a brutal, ugly night for the Cowboys against the Bears, a Monday Night football beat-down that the nation saw. QB Tony Romo threw five interceptions, RB DeMarco Murray had a key fumble, WR Dez Bryant had a big drop, and on and on.

It is with this backdrop that the Cowboys arrive at their bye week. Thankfully. They are 2-2, with an impressive home win over the Giants and a gritty win over the Bucs. It also contains a not-even-close road loss at Seattle and last night.

They have been impressive and maddening, which is the way it’s been for the Cowboys. As TE Jason Witten said, “That’s the disappointing thing. I think each man has to look at themselves and know we got the guys to do it. Now, go do it.”

With that woeful performance, the vultures are circling. The questions are beginning. But the Cowboys plan to go back to work. Owner Jerry Jones summed it up.

I’ve been buried nine feet under before with no hope and got to see some sunshine and came out and that’s what you gotta do,” Jones said. “This is very disappointing. Nobody’s more disappointed for these fans. But we’ll get in here, see how we can play better.
