It's Christmas In October For Cowboy-Haters!

Following up on my previous post about the exciting NFL season, I just saw the happy happy news that the Dallas Cowboys have been dealt their fourth or fifth major setback of the week!

Cowboys cornerback Adam "Pacman" Jones has been suspended by the NFL for AT LEAST four games, including Dallas' next game against the Redskins, as punishment for getting into a fight with one of his own bodyguards last week.

The Pacman drama adds to what has been a terrible time for the Cowpokes ever since they lost to the Redskins two weeks ago...

  • Starting quarterback Tony Romo is going to miss the next 4 weeks with a broken pinkie.

  • His replacement is former Redskin Brad Johnson. I like Johnson and I always have, ever since he was a Redskin. But Johnson is 40, and he doesn't have much of an arm anymore, which means Dallas' leading crybaby, Terrell Owens, is going to have plenty to whine about!

  • Punter Mat McBriar, perhaps the best punter in football, is out for a couple of months with a broken foot.

  • The Cowboys' other starting corner back, Terrence Newman, is out for another five weeks after surgery for a sports hernia, leaving two rookies to anchor a pass defense that was already shaky to begin with!

After being widely touted as the presumptive Super Bowl favorites, it looks like Dallas could be in danger of missing the playoffs altogether... As a lifelong Redskins fan, it doesn't get any better than that!

Tee Hee Hee!
