Nice effort by the Eagles and the Cowboys doing their best to recreate the classic holiday Romobyl, but try as they might, it’s just not the same meltdown. Sure, Kyle Orton wasted a decent performance by a roundly mocked and outmatched Monte Kiffin defense, but it just wasn’t with the familiar elan.
Failing that, we’ll have to take it for what it was: a game more compelling than it had a right to be in the final game of the regular season. Collinsworth lost his mind when Dallas was flagged late in the fourth quarter for a delay of game penalty when the play clock shaved off 15 seconds following a first down. The Cowboys still scored on the drive so it’s ultimately moot.
Anyway, take one last look at Jason Garrett because he’ll be fired shortly.
