Yep, I called it..Vanderjagt Gone!

I usually never gloat about predictions because I've been wrong several times, but wow! I called it on Nov. 19th. If Romo kept the offense on an explosive level then he (Vanderjagt) would be cut. Today, this prophecy became a reality. Some are shocked, but I am not; moreover, I'm relieved. I mean, as a fan, if you sweat out extra points after TDs, then there is something wrong...barely making extra points! c'mon get that shit outta here!

Vanderjagt has issues, and through 11 games, he could not get his shit together. Good bye and good riddance!

Martin Gramatica has been signed in his place. Yes, he is very average, and will also miss a few long FGs, but he can kick the ball much better on kickoffs. In addition, since we have an explosive offense our games should not be coming down to critical field goals.

Basically what happened today is this: Explosive Offense means no mo' Vandershank

Quick Cowboys/Colts Postgame Comments

The Cowboys limited turnovers, limited penalties, and Henry played very well. Great showing by the defense. Let's keep the momentum rolling, amazingly we are still very much in the hunt, and with Romo at the helm fan confidence should be high.

On Vanderjagt: This is my personal opinion, but if the struggles in the kicking game continue and Romo keeps the offense explosive, then we should take the hit and cut Vandy.

Signging Vanderjagt has been the worse free agency signing since Marcellus Wiley. He just sucks, and no consistency at all.

Cowboys/Colts: Pregame Thoughts

This will be short and concise, the keys to the game will be tunrovers, penalties, and the play of Anthony Henry.

Henry has been an adequate FA pickup, and has been relatively solid during his career here, but there are games where the OC has gone after Henry on more than a couple of occasions. You can write it down today: The Colts want to start out fast, and look for a deep pass to Henry's side, expect to see this throughout the game today.

We can win this game, but we have to execute on all cylinders.

Go Cowboys!

Cowboys 4-4, How Will It End?

With the Cowboys losing a heartbreaker on the road, the Cowboys drop to 4-4 for the year. The season is now half over, and for the Cowboys to have a legitimate chance of making the playoffs, the Cowboys must run the table or go 6-2 at the very worse, that would be 10-6. 9-7 and will not get it done, just like it did not get it done last year.

Supposedly the team we were fielding this year was going to be a SuperBowl contender, that's not the case. Just as Parcells has stated "you are what your record is" at right now, that's average, a .500 team that wins one and loses one.

We have plently of talent but god awful execution and concentration on both sides of the ball. Penalties and turnovers have been our crux all season, and unless this changes we miss the playoffs. This is not melodramatics on my part, but more of a reality check.

Let's take a glance at the remainder of the season:

11/12 @ Arizona
11/19 Indianapolis
11/23 Tampa Bay
12/3 @ NY Giants
12/10 New Orleans
12/16 @ Atlanta
12/25 Philadelphia
12/31 Detroit

So, what do you think, honestly? Is that not a brutal schedule or not? Now, we do have (5) home games coming up, we must sweep the home games, the other (3) games are on the road: Arizone, NY Giants, and Atlanta, we can lose 2 of those games. But who are we kidding, we can look at all the scenarios, the bottom line is that we cannot lose more than two games.

Based on our consistency through half the season I'm predicting that we go 8-8 or 7-9, and missing the playoffs. Sure you may not like this prediction, but it is what we are right now, and that's the most consistent thing we are right now, win one - lose one.

Romo Should Win Against Redskins

The Redskins have been the bust of the NFC East, and most likely the last year for Joe Gibbs; however, the 'Skins will come out and try to smack us in the mouth. This is a very critical game, a must win for the 'Skins. I expect them to pull everything out of the magic hat.

Unfortunately, the Cowboys should be able to win this game, and virtually dash the hopes of a winning season for the 'Skins. I would love nothing else but to beat them and beat them at home really good!

Romo has the mobility, the rocket arm, quick release, and the offensive weapons to pour it on against the lowly 'Skins. The thing that has stuck out about Romo is his distribution of the ball, especially with the TEs, and I think for our offense to keep drives going we must continue to spread the field. Like any other game, the key to victory will be turnovers. If we limit turnovers and our defense causes turnovers we will win everytime.

Let's get it done Romo!
