We’ll get a recap of all the weekend business tomorrow, but we can’t help but be elated with the Green Bay Packers putting together a 45-7 drubbing of the Dallas Cowboys in the Sunday Night game. The game was over so quickly that Cris Collinsworth almost ran out of ways to be folksy.
Aside from Jon Kitna and Dez Bryant (9 catches, 86 yards, 1 TD) playing catch in the first half, the Cowboys did almost nothing worth mentioning. The highlight of the game for Dallas was probably watching Roy Williams take a helmet-to-helmet shot from Green Bay’s Nick Collins. I appreciate that Collins stays true to his thuggish self, even in the face of a blowout.
Of course the big question is whether or not Cowboys coach Wade Phillips will keep his job. Going into last night, Cowboys owner Jerry Jones seemed content to let Phillips finish the last year of his contract with utter futility, but last night’s embarrassment on national TV might change that. I personally think Wade should stay; the last way to reward a guy that’s been so sh;tty at his job is to give him more time off during the holidays. Plus, how awesome has it been to watch the Cowboys lose almost every game this season? More awesome than giving bootleg mammograms in the parking lot of a Catholic high school. Yeah, I went there.
