Lewis has been sidelined since Oct. 14 with a torn right triceps. The 13-time Pro Bowl middle linebacker intends to return Sunday to face the Indianapolis Colts in what will almost certainly be his final home game.
Jones told The Fan “if you look at the pluses Sunday, we’re evolving into a team that can be a team that can compete for the championship. Not next year, this year.”
Lewis tore his right triceps during Sunday’s 31-29 victory over Dallas. Cornerback Lardarius Webb also is out for the year after ripping the ACL in his left knee in the win against the Cowboys.
By now, Cowboys fans are probably sick of the prognosticators, former coaches, players, talk show hosts and analysts calling the team dumb after the way they ended in Baltimore.
Baltimore’s insane-lunatic/brilliant-dramatist once scribbled: “Quoth the Raven, ‘Nevermore.’
I didn’t think this was possible, but the Cowboys lost a game in which they had enormous edges in first downs, total plays and time of possession, and in which they punted just once and ran 42 times for 227 yards.
“Sometimes it comes down to a kick,” Tony Romo said. “If the kick goes in, it’s, ‘You did a great job today, everybody!’ If it doesn’t go in, it’s ‘We didn’t do enough to win.’” There is a maddening truth to that review.
After Dez Bryant scored on a 4-yard pass from Tony Romo with 32 seconds left to make it 31-29, the 2-point conversion pass zipped through the arms of the diving Bryant in the front left corner of the end zone.
I hate the Baltimore Ravens because, frankly, they have Ray Lewis and we don’t. I’m admitting to pure jealousy fueling my hate with this one.
“I’m disappointed we’re not putting more points on the board, i’m disappointed that we’re not getting the turnovers – all of that tells me that at 2-2 were are in pretty good shape considering the way we play.”
Bill Belichick decided that he wasn’t convinced about the legitimacy of a kick. What resulted was an incident that’s all but guaranteed to get Belichick a hefty fine from the league office.
Thousands turned out Tuesday for the funeral of former Browns and Ravens owner Art Modell, including NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell and Cowboys owner Jerry Jones.
