The Cowboys have lost four starters since that opening night thriller against the Bucs. DeMarcus Lawrence with a broken foot? (And, remember, he was already coming off offseason back surgery.) There goes your best pass rusher.
Oh, and your second best pass rusher? Randy Gregory will almost certainly miss Sunday’s game against the Chargers before he can come off the COVID list.
La’el Collins? Five game suspension. More chaos in the O-line.
And don’t tell me that losing WR Michael Gallup to a bad calf strain is not a big deal.
How funky is the vibe right now? Defensive line assistant coach Leon Lett suffered a knee injury at practice yesterday. He was carted off. He will need surgery.
Trap game coming if ever I’ve seen one.
It’s WYAW (Watch Your Ass Week) for a long list of NFL would-be contenders. You don’t want to be 0-2, even in a now 17-game season.
Nervously glancing behind themselves would be the Colts, Bills, Vikings, Titans, Ravens, Packers, WFT, Cowboys and, yes, Browns.
You can throw the Bears and Falcons in there, too, if you thought either had legitimate playoff aspirations.
Is anybody else already tired of Urban Meyer? He bores me almost as much as the Ryder Cup.
The NBA’s Bucks have hired Lisa Byington as their regular play-by-play announcer on Bally Sports Wisconsin? I think that’s cooler than cool. She is very good.
