I'm still here. It has been a long time since I have posted. But please don't think that I have given up on my team or jumped ship to a new team. I have been a fan for my entire life and I'll always be a fan. But I do have to admit this season has been tough up to this point. That isn't why my posts have decreased though. I have a lot going on right now so my blog had to take a back seat to other priorities. I can't promise to post as often as I have in the past, but I'm still here.
The game today is a do or die for both teams. And that is exactly what worries me. Last season the Cowboys faced a do or die in week 17 and we saw what happened against the Giants. All signs in this game point towards the Cowboys having a great shot to win the game. But I'm willing to bet the Eagles feel the exact same way.
The game could go either way. It feels like a blow out type of game. Either the Cowboys will get out early and turn the Eagles into a chaotic mess of finger pointing or the Eagles will get out early and do the same to the Cowboys. It all depends on the start of the game. The stadium in Philly will turn against their team if the Cowboys can force a few early turnovers and put some points on the board. But the stadium will go crazy supporting their team if the Cowboys come out and play sloppy football early on and let the Eagles get the lead.
I wish I could say which Cowboys team will show up. But, as we've seen this year, the Cowboys are a tough team to figure. On one drive they can look unbeatable. On the next drive they can be a disaster. On one play they can look like the best team in the league. The next play can be a circus of ridiculous mistakes. I'm sure Jason Garrett is more frustrated by the inconsistency than any of us fans could ever be.
It feels like this is it for the season. The Cowboys can win and really get on a great roll in the second half of the season with an easy schedule. Or they can lose and fall into the abyss of crappy NFL teams. The Cowboys have the talent to pull out of this mess. But so do the Eagles. Your guess is as good as mine when it comes to picking a winner. My heart says the Cowboys. My head says flip a coin. I'm not even going to pick this one. I'm just going to hope that the season isn't already over after 9 games.
