All the injuries? Nonsense. Every team has injuries. Most of the Cowboys best players were on the field in week 17. It's foolish to act like the injuries the Cowboys did suffer were out of the realm of the ordinary in the NFL, especially when some of the guys who were hurt are injury-prone players with a long history of getting hurt.
Nevermind that the offense hardly sustained any signficant injuries after the beginning of the season. You build a defense around injury prone and aging players, it isn't bad luck when they get hurt, it's what you bargained for.
It sounds like you're arguing with me here, but I'm agreeing with you, so...I'm confused.
“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
