Merry Christmas! Tony Romo saved the Eagles’ season by being the most predictable, yet improbably inept quarterback in football. Let’s check on the home page of the Dallas Morning News to see how things are going in the Big D:
I said it on Twitter yesterday, and I think I still mean it this morning: If I had to choose yesterday between an Eagles win and a Cowboys win, or an Eagles loss and a Cowboys implosion, I would choose the latter every time. That was too much fun. Yesterday meant nothing and, crazily enough, the Bear games next Sunday could mean almost nothing if the Cowboys win their game before the Eagles take the field. It would mean that the best the Eagles could do is be one game ahead of the Cowboys going into Week 17, but since a tie wins the Cowboys the division, a one game lead or a tie going into Week 17 is essentially the same thing for the Eagles. At that point, the Bears game could impact seeding (3rd or 4th overall in conference), but would have no impact on the division. Expect Chip Kelly to be asked about whether he would sit his starters if that’s the case. Of course… a Cowboys loss means the Eagles could win the division on Sunday Night Football during Christmas week. Yum.
Let’s hit it!
