Cowboys Fans Demand Return of Aikman

Giants 36, Cowboys 22. A look back on last night's game: Eli Manning completed less than 50% of his passes and threw an interception in the red zone. Drew Bledsoe one-upped Manning with a terrible interception at the goal line with less than two minutes left in the first half, when a touchdown would have given the 'Boys the lead at the half. Well played, Drew. Well played.

But Bill Parcells — that wily old coot — benched Bledsoe and put in Tony Romo at the start of the third quarter. The home crowd erupted in cheers for their long-sought hero. And then… First pass: interception. Romo threw three picks in a half of work, including the game-sealing red zone pick-6 that I can only call Bledsonian. Ouch.

The bad thing about the Romo/Bledsoe bed-defecation isn't that the Cowboys lost — I think we can agree that's a good thing — but that it detracts from one of the other goats: Terrell Owens. His ridiculous drop on 4th-and-2 really deserves its share of the blame for the Cowboys loss.

Oh, and I guess the Giants deserve some credit, too. I think Tiki Barber cured polio at halftime or something.
