Where the Folk Do We Go From Here?
Okay, so now what? Blame long-snapper L.P. Ladouceur?
Said owner Jerry Jones after Sunday's loss to the Chargers, "I don't believe we've got a holder problem."
Now do you see what a folly it is for the Cowboys to be the first team in NFL history to blame a kicking slump on a holder? Tony Romo was fine. Nick Folk is beyond broken.
Folk has missed six of his last nine field-goal attempts and one in each of Dallas' last five games, inlcuding a 42-yarder yesterday in a 3-point loss.
Where, oh where, do the Cowboys turn? Where is Steve Hoffman when you need him?
The easiest choice is to give rookie David Buehler a shot. Can't be any worse, right? If you want a veteran then former Bronco/Falcon Jason Elam is available. Maybe call Mike Vanderjagt?
I don't think the Cowboys will get to the playoffs. But I know they won't if they keep giving away points in the kicking game.
