Remember The Siege Of The Alamo ……….. ? Well It Went Something Like This ………..
Way to go Cowboys ! I don’t think it right any longer that you use the name of the city of Dallas as part of the organization’s name. You’ve done the city and the fans a great discredit. The effort put forth by you as a team was so bad that I thought I was witnessing the very siege of The Alamo, itself. Can we now all agree that this is no longer ‘America’s Team’ ? Better yet turn this bunch of overpaid fecal matter over to those who’d have use for them. Tony Romo has been often called an ‘elite quarterback’ in the NFL. Never has been and he never will be , not based on this display ! And for God’s sake, Jerry Jones put us immediately out of our misery by either firing Jason Garrett or Wade Phillips , if not both ! The two between them had no answer for Brett Favre and the Minnesota Vikings.
Now to describe the defeat of the Cowboys as being lopsided would be to do the very word itself an injustice. Let’s just say that the siege that was laid down by the Vikings harbored on be an outright massacre. The Cowboys were woefully inept and any thought that this game was going to be a competitive one was easily shot down by the resiliency and bravado play shown by the Minnesota Vikings. Suffice to say, that for Brett Favre, he makes another trip to an NFC championship game after the 34-3 lambasting of the Cowboys. And that score if anything tells how dominant the Vikings were over their NFC East opponents. And for Vikings’ coach , Brad Childress this might be the vindication he’s sought in bringing Favre to the city of Minneapolis, in order to quarterback this team to where he believes that they belong. And that presumably is amongst the elite of the NFL and rightfully on to a Superbowl victory in Miami.

Cowboys QB Romo folds in blowout loss to Vikings
By John Krawcynzski , AP Sports Writer
Minneapolis (AP)—All those big-game demons that Tony Romo supposedly vanquished last week resurfaced at the worst possible time for the Dallas Cowboys.
Romo lost two of his three fumbles and threw an interception to seal the Cowboys’ fate in a 34-3 loss to the Minnesota Vikings in the NFC divisional playoffs Sunday.
Romo completed 22 of 35 passes for 198 yards, but the best individual season of his career was brought to a crashing halt. The Vikings sacked him six times and pressured him often. One of the enduring images of the day will be Romo slamming his fist to the turf in frustration as the game slipped away.
On the other side, one of Romo’s boyhood idols did him in. Romo grew up in Burlington, Wis., while Brett Favre(notes) was leading the Green Bay Packers back to the top of the NFL. There was no cheering for him Sunday while Favre threw for 234 yards and four touchdowns to lead the Vikings to their first NFC title game since 2001.
Romo trudged back to the locker room with a dejected look on his face and another big-game failure on his resume.

Whilst the Cowboys were easily discarded like an unwanted old pair of shoes. You’ve got to now be asking yourself. How is it that a team who so easily had their way with the Philadelphia Eagles, merely a week ago end up looking like they’d been dragged around continuously bitch slapped for the better part of four quarters of football ? It’s not as if they hadn’t been be prepared to meet the Vikings in their domed venue. But then again coming of their first playoff victory in over decade what else should one now come to expect of a team that year in year out they’ve continued to disappoint their fans during that span ? And for Jerry Jones as the teams’ President, General Manager and now I’d say mentally retarded owner ! Jerry cut the bulls_it and get someone in, who knows what the hell they’re doing when it comes personnel moves and the assessing of talent ! You’ve an eye for talent the way that Elizabeth Taylor had a choice in the men he sought to marry. Doomed for failure, more often than not but even when there was success. Somehow there was a way in the end where it all got screwed up. The same can be said of the internal functions of the Cowboys as an organization. And that bitch ass of a monstrosity you call Cowboys’ Stadium there in Arlington, Texas. Let's just hope that it can pay for itself with a number of others shows. Because it won't be seeing a Superbowl being raised in there by a team of yours anytime soon. It may well host a Superbowl but it definitely won't be one where a team of yours is competing and that's a fact . You're just not good enough at all and today's events simply prove the point altogether !
As much as it pains me to say this on the day the better team won. Ouch ! Now I’ve deal with all of the horse sh_t while the likes of ESPN’s Mark Schlereth, Merrill Hoge and Ron Jaworski and Trent Dilfer all now go ‘Brokeback’ on Brett Favre . I’ll repeat myself as I’ve already mentioned a couple of fellow bloggers, sportshump and chappy 81 , within the forum. A ‘Brett Favre Superbowl’ to my mind would be the worse case scenario possible ! But if it has to be then it has to be. You can well understand the news cycle surrounding such an event would be relentless and it would border on the staple for the the likes of ESPN and Fox Sports. Not only that but Chris Mortensen would then come out with some of the most asinine comments heard this side of the year so far. He’d no doubt opine on Favre’s legacy as a player in the NFL and the fact the the fans ought to be blessed having witnessed such a great player. While I don’t doubt Brett Favre’s talent as a player , I do question his ‘character’ as a ‘person’ and as a ‘teammate’. He may well come across as someone who’s caring but insofar as it’s about himself and absolutely no one else. And though at present his Vikings’ teammates may well speak highly of him. I doubt it is out of sincerity or reverence but merely as in their eyes he’s viewed as the person who gives them the best opportunity to win. And for the backups such as Sage Rosenfels and Tavaris Jackson, well let’s just say they’re the forgotten ones in the midst of this all . If they get their rings then they’ll no doubt be happy. If they don’t then there’s the possibility that they’ll just become journeymen quarterbacks within the NFL.
The playoffs so far have proven to be a blessing and a disaster in one fail swoop. We’ve had three of four games that have in essence been played but being nowhere near as competitive as one would’ve hoped. The final game of the quartet of four playoff games this weekend, pits the New York Jets against the San Diego Chargers. And one can only hope that for the fans’ sake that this game can least live up to expectations. If not then we’ll all be in a funk as to weekend’s events as far as the NFL is concerned.
