Time For a Cowboys T.O.


The Dallas Cowboys are a lot like the financial markets these days: Even when things are going well, there are underlying issues; when things aren't going well, there is panic in the streets.

Frankly, it's exhausting.

Maybe what's needed is just what some were saying about the global financial markets: give them a holiday in which everyone chills a bit or, in the Cowboys' case, regains their sanity.

If it isn't T.O., it's Pacman (sorry -- Adam). And now it's the pinkie finger of Tony Romo. This team is a constant enigma wrapped in a really bad soap opera. Memo to all of the Cowboys: Dudes, you haven't won enough to be this dysfunctional.

Still, you can't write them off just yet. Maybe exactly what this team needs is the calm, quiet, stabilizing influence of Brad Johnson. At this point, why not? What more can happen? Besides, the guy has won a Super Bowl more recently than Romo.
