No Excuse tour has marching orders

From Super Bowl or bust to no more excuses, the Cowboys now know the road they must travel in 2009.

The highlights include back to back primetime games to open the new Cowboys stadium in Arlington, starting with the New York Giants Sept. 20 on NBC in week two followed by an ESPN Monday night affair against the Carolina Panthers. The ever popular Cowboys play a league-high tying five games in primetime. 

The season will likely come down to a very tough December and January stretch that includes three of the final five games on the road against the Giants, Saints and Redskins and two tough home games against the San Diego Chargers and the Philadephia Eagles to end the season Jan. 3.

The Cowboys have not had a winning record in December and January since 1996. Not surprisingly they have not won a playoff game since then either.

But Terrell Owens is gone. There is a new attitude. And there are no more excuses.

Well I will be surprised if Dallas win 3 out of their last 5 games. It will be extremly difficult to beat Washington and New York in December climate up there. So at that point in the season Dallas better at least 8-3. I believe the season rest in the hands of Jason Garrett. If he becomes more of modest play caller instead of trying to recreate the wheel with shotgun formations and 4 receiver sets. Allow the offensive line to impose their will and run the football to control the flow of the game then we got a shot. But if call plays like he did last year and allow Romo to play like gunslinger then the results will be as last year.

there was a reason why romo was not highly drafted coming out of division two football. romo has the ability to make a poor offensive line look good with his hoodini moves, but when it come time to make the decisions of a champion, it falls short, just look at his dna, no championships to call on either in high school or at the college level. his high school coach had to persuade the coach at eastern illinois to give romo a part-time scholarship. what does that tell you about america's team quarterback. this is year three in garrett's system it's either put up or shut up time no more execuses. that goes for cupcake too.
