Off Asides On Dallas Cowboys vs. Seattle And The Curse
Forget sleepless, the Dallas Cowboys were addled, embattled, and rattled in Seattle.
Worse, quarterback Tony Romo was re-cursed.
The Seahawks made Alfred Hitchcock proud as they swarmed and pecked the Cowboys into bloody submission with a 27-7 spanking on Sunday.
Last week, Blotch officially banished the Tony Romo curse after the Cowboys beat the Giants.
The Curse dated back to 2006 in Seattle when Romo fumbled the hold on a field goal attempt that would have won a wildcard game for the Cowboys.
That screw-up kept the Cowboys on a long downward slide marked by frustration, missed playoff opportunities, and inopportune Romo miscues and meltdowns.
Yesterday was the first time since 2006 that the Cowboys returned to Seattle.
The first three seconds of yesterday’s game looked promising.
Felix Jones caught the opening kickoff on the run and looked like a man determined to bolt 100 yards downfield.
Instead he fumbled. Then a punt got blocked. Then Romo threw an interception.
The Cowboys came out after halftime and instead of being pumped up like they were in New York last week, they let a rookie quarterback outplay them. They looked tired. Confused. And manhandled — just ask Sean Lee.
Now the curse is back.
