    Cowboys’ Witten still leading with his chin on playoff hopes

    OXNARD, Calif. — Perennial Pro Bowl tight end Jason Witten is Mr. Cowboy, just as Bob Lilly and Roger Staubach were before him.

    He epitomizes everything that is right and good about the historic franchise.

    Tony Romo might be the poster boy of this era of 8-8 Dallas Cowboys, because the quarterback is a lightning rod for criticism.

    But Witten has been the heart and soul of this franchise for the better part of a decade.

    He is one of the greats of the game, who is passionate and gives it all on and off the field in word and deed.
    He plays on without his helmet, plays through a lacerated spleen and leads with his chin.

    The Cowboys have long been criticized for a lack of leadership, because they haven’t won, not because they don’t have leaders.

    Witten is that and has been that.
