Stick a fork in them, yep they’re done! Sorry Cowboy fans…

The cowboys may have to play the remainder of the season without Adam Jones in the defensive backfield, which is a huge deal considering they don’t have any depth at DB. This week THE BOYS will start their swiss cheese secondary against the Giants. I expect Eli to have a big game. The Pacman news may seem like small news, but when you take into account their laundry list of injuries, its not hard to jump to grasp it’s severity. Jerry Jones may have been better suited to have picked up some free agents DB’s rather than wasting 3 draft picks on Odessa’s #1 WR Roy Williams. Just look at the secondary for this week’s Giants game, I am starting to think they will have no one to actually play Safety. Hamlin (Ankle) probably won’t be ready and Keith Davis (MCL) is not likely to play and remember that Roy Williams is on IR. So who is going to start? That is a question that I don’t think Wade Phillips knows the answer to either. Right now it looks like Tra Battle and Courtney Brown will get the start, at the Safety spots. Yet again because of this you should expect a big game for Eli and Giants second year TE Kevin Boss for several reasons. The First reason is that Tra Battle, who was cut earlier this season by the Chargers, is severely undersized and will be expected to cover the TE during certain man packages during this game. In the Red Zone this will really kill the boys. Also Courtney Brown is a ex-corner who just wasn’t agile enough to play CB at the NFL level. He is not a reliable player and in this big game he could be exploited. This duo just won’t match up against Big Blue’s crew of Wide-Outs.
Sorry Boy’s fans, your season is already over, finito!
The Cowboys have a pretty rough upcoming schedule, in which they will face the New York Giants (11-2), Baltimore Ravens (9-4) and Philadelphia Eagles (7-5-1). These are teams that I don’t know if they could beat even when they were healthy. So now with the cowboys all banged up, I have to say is, “Stick a fork in it. Good job for beating Seattle and San Francisco, but the reality is your still not making the playoffs! SO STOP TALKING ABOUT IT!!!!!”
