It took us all season, but we decided to post Bob Brookover's up-down drill that appears in the newspaper, but someone never makes here online. So enjoy (we think)
Now the coach has a first-round playoff loss to go with his four NFC championship and one Super Bowl losses.
Let the speculation about the quarterback’s future begin.
The derrieres of the Dallas Cowboys did not appear to be stung at the end of the evening.
He wasn’t on the field a lot and you have to wonder about his future in Philadelphia, too.
His second-quarter touchdown pass looked big at the time. His second-quarter fumble ended up being much bigger. As football experiments go, the Vick test tube should now be discarded.
NFL referees should just make a recording that says, “false start, No. 71 offense” whenever they’re working an Eagles game.
A questionable pass interference call early in the second quarter against the cornerback cost the Eagles 40 yards and gave Dallas a first down at the Eagles’ 1-yard line. The Cowboys capitalized with a TD on the next play. Brown was burned a few more times before the end of the evening.
The defensive coordinator said he would coach better. He didn’t.
The Cowboys’ coach got his first playoff victory in his fifth try and he might have a team that’s good enough to play in the Super Bowl.
The Cowboys’ quarterback looked a little shaky early, but put up some big numbers. Still not sure he’s good enough to win it all.
Pressure from the Eagles’ linebacker forced Romo out of the pocket on a second-and-23 play with Dallas at the Philadelphia 27-yard line.
White’s pressure led to a sack by the Eagles’ seldom-used defensive end, which pushed the Cowboys out of field goal range on Dallas’ opening drive.
The Eagles’ benched linebacker returned as a pass rusher and came up with a sack on Dallas’ second possession, which again pushed the Cowboys out of field goal range. He later saved a punt return for a touchdown with a tackle of Patrick Crayton.
Cowboys second-quarter challenge
Referee Ed Hochuli – yes, the infamous Ed Hochuli – overturned the ruling on the field that safety Sean Jones intercepted a second-quarter Romo pass that would have given the Eagles the ball at the Dallas 14-yard line. The evidence for overturning the call is supposed to be indisputable. Was it?
Be interesting to see how much the Cowboys’ safety is fined for his cheap shot on Eagles tight end Brent Celek in the first quarter. It should be more than the $7,500 Macho Harris was hit with after his hit on Denver’s Tony Scheffler a few weeks ago.
The man from Monmouth University scored another TD for the Cowboys.
At least the rookie receiver scored a touchdown.
