The Dallas Cowboys dropped to a disappointing 1-4 yesterday after losing to the Minnesota Vikings in the “It’s Time To Panic” bowl. After the game, the organization was basically split into two camps:
– The camp consisting of most of the organization that understand that things are bleak for them and they need to figure out how to win a game before they think about things like making the playoffs.
– The camp consisting of Roy Williams that believes that the Cowboys could still end up being 12-4, 11-5, or 10-6.
We’ll deal with the camp that hasn’t bumped their head first.
“I think you can crawl out of being 2-3,” cornerback Terence Newman said. “One-and-four is a hole.”
A hole the Cowboys have a 4.2 percent chance of escaping.
“We’re not thinking about playoffs,” coach Wade Phillips said. “We’ve got to get through this game, we’ve got a lot of things that we need to go over to try and get better on and go from there.
“We’re going to play one play at a time, one game at a time.”
And now, let’s hear from a man who has definitely lost his mind.
“We’ve got two more stumbles then we’re out,” receiver Roy Williams said.
“Can we end up 12-4? Can we end up 11-5? No doubt. Can we end up 10-6? Sure.
“But it’s going to be tough.”
Um. Ok. Roy. Good luck with that, I guess.
