Tough Days in Dallas (Dallas Cowboys)

The antics of the Dallas Cowboys' past two games have been a total "180" of their performances in the first six games of the season. The display of selfishness was at an all-time high on last week's Monday Night Football, as the Dallas Cowboys took on one of their long-time rivals (Washington Redskins).

Honestly, two things should have happened that game for the Cowboys to possibly have the best chance to win:

1) Jerry Jones needed to stay in the skybox

- Apparently, Jones needed to let everyone know that he truly runs the Dallas Cowboys organization. The presence of Jones on-the-field disrupted a great deal of the chemistry with the Cowboys' sideline, and to make matters worse...Jones even took it upon himself to "give the team some inspiration.".

Jones' probably telling Coach Garrett to put Romo back in the game.

2) Tony Romo doesn't ALWAYS have to be the hero.

- With Brandon Weeden under center, the Cowboys remained competitive and continued to fight hard with Romo out due to an injured back. However, when Tony Romo hit the field once again in the 4th quarter, the chemistry wasn't the same.

What makes matters worse is how Weeden "getting pulled" in the 4th quarter could have possibly hurt his confidence to perform to his potential. I give Arizona credit for being a good team, but it's extremely difficult to beat a team when your quarterback is aware that he can get pulled out of the game any minute.

In my opinion, the Cowboys should have kept Weeden in the game against the Redskins. Not only would this have built up his confidence over time, but Tony Romo would actually have a decent recovery time. This organization (*cough, cough*..Jerry Jones *cough*) is rushing Tony Romo's recovery time, and this does not benefit anybody on the Cowboys team.

And why have we stopped running the ball?!! *Facepalm*

As the Cowboys get ready to face the Jags in London, I hope Romo has a comfortable seat on the sidelines. We're really going to need him close to 100% as we face the Giants next week.
