I decided to take a look back at the last meeting between the Eagles and Cowboys. It actually was not on Christmas, but it was close enough to have every Dallas child wind up with a lump of coal in their stocking.
Dan from The Landry Hat predicted a 41-10 Cowgirls blowout. His predictions never come true, and his game-day-post is fun to read. You can really sense the desperation, and disappointment in Dan’s words.
It’s now time for the Dallas offense to get moving. Time to put this game away!
On 1st and 10 Romo play actions and throws to Owens for his first catch. Owens runs to the Cowboys 45. On 1st and 10 Witten gets a quick throw and runs for another 10 yards for 14 yards total. He threw Brian Dawkins to the GROUND!!!!!! On 1st and 10 Romo nearly throws another interception in a short middle dump pass to Marion Barber, who was well covered. Romo is lucky here. On 2nd and 10 a screen pass was broken up. On 3rd and 10 Romo throws incomplete for Witten. Dallas punts.
Dallas Punts is where it ends! LOL He never even took the time to write how the game ends, because he was busy crying and punching a pillow. A few days later Dan came back from his hissy fit, and blamed the loss on Jessica Simpson. Great excuse eh?
Here are the highlights from the game:
The Cowboys did make it to the playoffs, but they choked it up in their first game at home, to a team they had already beaten twice that season. Cowboys’ fans, and Hitler went off the deep end after this embarrassing loss.
