We Don’t Need No Stinking Helmet!

jwitten

Jason Witten’s a man…and he’s not even 40! His 53-yard catch after being virtually decapitated by a pair of Eagle defenders epitomized both this game and the Cowboys season to date. When Witten made the catch, the game was already over, for all intents and purposes. It was the fourth quarter and Dallas had a beyond comfortable 21-point lead, yet here is their starting tight end absorbing a brutal double hit that would have jarred the ball loose from about 95% of the other receivers in the NFL — but instead of the ball, it was his helmet that flew off. Now at that point, about 99% of all other PLAYERS in the NFL would have gone down quickly or scurried to the sidelines to avoid exposing their unprotected head to further violent collisions. Not Witten. Not these Cowboys.

It was, in my opinion, the single finest total team effort from start to finish by the Cowboys yet this season. Tony Romo was one interception away from absolute perfection, T.O. took advantage of numerous opportunities to spread his wings in front of the angry Philly crowd, and the offensive line absolutely dominated the previously-touted Eagle front seven. Bring on the Giants!!!

  1. Helmets are only needed when something is worth protecting.

    No NFL steroid addict is worth very much today.

    Too many other dopers coming up from college.

  2. Where can I find that exact picture to buy??
    It is clearly the best one I’ve seen that best captures the moment.

    Thanks
