    That means it will be

    1. more runs
    2. shorter passes

    Are you starting to understand my point?

    And what's wrong with pressure?

    I get what you're saying. I just don't think its entirely true. Eventually there was going to come a time when Romo finally got over that hump of that last game of the season. I was hoping this time would be it. Or I atleast was hoping he'd get the chance to overcome it.

    1. More running is fine and dandy. Until we're down 24-10 and can't run it anymore.
    2. Everyone on this board has *****ed and moaned about the short passing game WITH Romo. And now its gonna get shorter. YPA is one of the most important determining factors in winning in the NFL and you think getting worse at that will be better for us?

    3. You keep spouting off about all your years of watching the NFL and how "teams come together" and "always win these games" when star players get hurt. Did that happen to the Packers this year after Rodgers got hurt? Can you actually name one of these instances, or is it just fun for you because you dislike Romo so much that losing him made you "giddy"?

    IF this coaching staff is smart. That's a big if, especially since they showed they like to abandon the run even when it's in our best interests.

    1. They will expect a ton of check downs
    2. They will be heavily favored due to us having no defense
    3. Pressure is always there to win when the season is on the line
    4. We should, and we will get blown out unless DeMarco Murray plays the game of his life.

    I will be sure to bump this come gameday when its mid 3rd Quarter and the Eagles have already emptied the bench.

    Romo is special.......................Orton is freaking Orton and has not taken a snap in over 2 seasons...................the idea that a player that has been riding the pine for 2 seasons comes off the bench and drops a 40 burger on anybody is laughable.

    And yes.........we are going to need 40+ to win...........Romo could have done that...........Orton cant..............If Orton could ball like that, he would be starting somewhere considering some of the scrub QBs that were playing last Sunday.

    Kyle Orton career numbers

    58.4% completion rate.................81 TDs.........57 Ints..........sacked 132 times........79.7 QBR


    So a career 79 QBR guy is going to have his way with an NFL defense?..............................After not taking a snap for over 2 years?.....................color me skeptical.

    A playoff birth should be motivation enough. If players need thefranchiseQB to go down to get motivated then we are I trouble.

    The silver linning, if any, is the team has all week to implement a game plan with Orton under center. This game is all on the coaches and Garrett specifically. Can He come up with a run oriented ball control game plan that gives us the best chance to win. I hope so, fingers crossed

    Agree they aren't very good. The Bears game against Philly was the best thing that ever happened for the Cowboy as everyone things they are now world beaters. If Cutler sat that game it would have been a different story. That D would have been torched. The Eagles secondary can be had.

    The pressure is now on the Eagles and not the Cowboys. No one gives us any chance of winning that game now that Romo is done.. Eagles will be very tight that game I guarantee it. What if we lose mentality will be at the back of their minds. We can go all out and have fun basically as we are now the huge underdogs.

    Not sure how long you have watched the NFL but I have seen crazier things happen in 40+ years of watching. Remember there are 2 things that are guaranteed in life and that is death and taxes. Any one counting us out have no clue about football. Yes are chances have diminished without Romo but on any Sunday any one can WIN. The Eagles will lose this one.

    I do know that if we lose it's expected but if the Eagles lose to Orton that would be embarrassing.

    OK, what ever you are smoking or drinking, please pass it around! We have had in the pass QB come off the bench and win a game. However, they always had an offense and defense to help. In this case, it was Romo who made the offensive line look descent passing with his scrambling. The defense has not been good since the beginning of the year and there is no reason to assume they are going to stop the Eagles offense. So, to win the Cowboys are going to have to run the ball 100% of the time and score every time they have the ball. The defense will have to come up with two (2) turn overs, the special teams will have to put the team in favorable field position every time.

    There you go, the winning strategy for the Cowboys.

    It's a win or go home game for both teams. There is pressure on both teams and lot's of it. The Eagles may win this game but it is going to be close.
