Yesterday, the Dallas Cowboys headed up to Kansas City to take on the Chiefs. We turn to the fabulous Steve Kemble to give us his Ride’Em Cowboy Report for the skinny on the game.
If we were worried about Tony Romo’s bruised ribs, we didn’t have to worry the first 3 quarters of the game. Romo completed 30 of 45 passes with no interceptions, but whatever he was taking for the pain must have wore off in the 4th. He only completed 8 of 15 passes in the 4th quarter.
We had a little of good Dez Bryant and a little of bad Dez Bryant. Good Dez made 5 receptions that took him 100 yards, but Bad Dez dropped the ball in the 4th quarter that led to a punt. He says he took his eyes off the ball, but doesn’t he get paid millions of dollars to keep his eyes ON the ball?
The Cowboys’ offense not good. In fact, commentator Terry Bradshaw ran Offensive Coordinator Bill Callahan through the ringer. The Dallas Morning News reports that Bradshaw called Callahan’s offense the “same old weak junk we saw in Oakland,” in a reference to Callahan’s previous work with the Raiders. “It drives me up a wall, five-yard out routes, five-yard drag routes. You have to take chances. You can’t keep running this short dinky offense.”
In a style note, Steve says that Chiefs fans need to pick a shade of red. Arrowhead Stadium looked like 50 Shades of Red, and it made him dizzy. Tony Romo’s post-game interview ensemble should earn him a fashion penalty. He needs to start dressing like a leader and not come out sloppily dressed.
