The Cowboys have a lot of good players on their defense who can pick up the slack for the loss of Sean Lee. D-Ware, Brandon Carr, Bruce Carter, Anthony Spencer, etc. None of those guys are on the hook, though.

No. That falls on the shoulders of one Jason Garrett. The Cowboys Head Coach who has come under fire in recent weeks for questionable clock work and conservative play calling now is the Cowboys most important entity. HE is the one who has to step up the most for this season to be salvaged.

The Giants have played a few games this year without Hakeen Nicks. They’re considered the best team in the NFL right now.

The Packers have played more games than this fantasy owner would like without Greg Jennings. They’re hitting their stride.

The Jets have lost Darelle Revis for the year with an ACL tear. They were tied for 1st in the AFC East prior to snatching defeat from the jaws of victory @NE this past week.

The Patriots lost this guy named Tom Brady in 2008 for the year, they went 11-5.

Its about coaching. Coughlin, McCarthy, The Hoodie, Rex all came up with ways to hide the loss of their star players. Jason Garrett needs to find a way to do the same.

Championship teams are made from turmoil. It brings guys together, it raises players games and awareness, and it is a coaches easiest motivational tool. Us vs Them. .

That’s all Garrett has to do when it comes to motivation now. He doesn’t have to come up with a cheesy Knute Rockne 1920’s era speech, he doesn’t have to read motivational books right now or watch Bill Pullman in Independence Day. All he has to do is play the Us vs Them card.

That, and hope Tony Romo fins his inner Eli Manning.

I never thought I’d ever utter that sentence.
