We're much better equipped to deal with them this time around.
No doubt. But, if I'm being honest, I was just as sure last year that we were going to beat them as I am today. That was a game that just stunned me, and I felt like an idiot for expecting such good things.
He basically took the wind out of my sails here this morning. I still think we win, convincingly, today, because the matchups really are in our favor (better coverage ILBs, better CBs, and we've got a major advantage on their battered OL). But now I've got the seeds of doubt, thanks to theebs.
“Everything is going good,” Romo said. “I think we’re putting together some ideas that we love, and I feel strongly about certain things that are going to help us. I think it’s just a bunch of guys going to work every day and figuring out ways to be better in a lot of different capacities, from players and coaches, all the way up. It’s exciting." --Tony Romo
