Witten pulling for Cowboys to win out, even as Redskins do them -- and temporary fan Jerry Jones -- a favor by beating Giants

Tight end Jason Witten knew it was good for the Cowboys that the Redskins won Monday night, tightening the NFC East.

But he’s pulling more for the Cowboys to take care of their own business.

“Obviously, we know the pressure of having to win out,” he said Tuesday at an appearance at Swift Elementary School in Arlington. “We got a little help there with the Redskins last night. It’s about us. Taking care of our own business and not worrying about other opponents.”

Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said he was openly pulling for the Redskins.

“Yes, I was,” Jones said on his radio show. “I was around a couple of people there early, and we all couldn’t believe ‘Redskins’ was coming out of our mouth. But we were hoping they’d get the job done, and to their credit, that RGIII is again a major factor in what’s happening, period. He did a great job. That was a big win for them, of course, but for us.”

Witten said he’ll save his scoreboard watching for when it’s most important.

“If you’re in that last game and you need this, this and this to go right, I can see you cheering for it,” he said. “But the best thing we can do is take care of ourselves and start playing our best football this time of year and build on that win last week.”

Correct assessment by the Robot Witten. The return of RB Murray makes things more interesting. Romo looks so much more comfortable back there when the team HAS AN EFFECTIVE RUNNING GAME. Romo himself ahs repeatedly stated that RUNNING THE BALL makes his raed of the defense easier and his capacity to be effective easier. So 5the team needs the OL & The Run Game TO SHOW UP in the crucial 4 remaining games. The robot & Dez will destroy most opponenets if this happens. For all his immature problems, Dez is staedily establishing himself as a truely dangerous wideout that most defenses CANNOT STOP. Thus if the RUNNING GAME becomes a factor expect a few more victories yet as Dallas has some outstnading weapons in the passing attack.
