Toldja the Cowboys Should've Hired Norv Turner
A week into the healing process, how are your wounds?
Mine are as raw and nasty as today's weather.
Had lots of Cowboys-related thoughts while examining Dallas' autopsy and consuming Wild Card Weekend. Like:
*Special teams coach Bruce Read was fired. Better late than never, I guess.
*Jason Garrett and Ray Sherman are attracting interest from other NFL teams. Any other 9-7 teams with 0 playoff wins in a dozen years spawn such affection? Seems the league also drinks Dallas' Kool-Aid.
*Remember T.O.'s cutesy shirts from training camp? iBlock. iCatch. iWhatever. Wonder when those iSuck versions will be hiting eBay?
*And I was starting to feel sorry for the Colts after Saturday's OT loss in San Diego. They had the league's hottest team and newly crowned MVP (Peyton Manning), only to lose in the first round to an 8-8 team. What a kick to the crotch. Then it dawned on me that the Chargers seem to play pretty good football late in the season. How good?
The last two years San Diego is 12-1 in December-January, including 3-1 in the playoffs. The Cowboys are 3-6, 0-1 in the post-season. Hmm. I remember a certain someone touting Norv Turner over Wade Phillips. Toldja. - Richie Whitt
