The dreamers among us are excited. They imagine that a two-game win streak after a coaching change has set off a chain of events that will lead to a 9-7 season record, wildcard playoff slot, and a Super Bowl berth for the Dallas Cowboys.
Here’s a cold slap in the face: After facing a solid New Orleans Saints team on Thursday (yay Thanksgiving) , the Cowboys still have to face Peyton Manning and the Indianapolis Colts — and Michael Vick and the Philadelphia Eagles twice.
But suppose the ‘Boys are on a six- or seven-game winning streak when Tony Romo recovers from his shoulder injury. Does head coach Jason Garrett pull Jon Kitna and reinstate Romo as starting quarterback?
Hell no, it’s Kitna’s season from here on out (as long as he’s winning.)
Garrett should refrain from changing his qb, particularly after Romo did so little to inspire the team earlier in the season.
My final advice to Garrett: Keep Kitna away from Jessica Simpson.
