What A Difference

That creaking sound you hear is the sound of all the bandwagon fans jumping back aboard.  Funny how much things can change in just one week.

Last week, Roy Williams was a bust.  They'd paid too much for him.  He wasn't worth a first round pick.  They needed to cut him, or trade him.

A week later, with a notch in the win column, he's worth every penny and more.

Last week, this running back by committee was a dumb idea.  It needed to be scrapped.  They needed a feature back.  Just pick one and stick with him.

A week later, with a notch in the win column, the three headed monster is the most fearsome thing in the NFL.

Last week, the entire coaching staff needed to be fired.  Wade Phillips looked lost and Jason Garrett couldn't coach his way out of a paper bag.

A week later, with a notch in the win column, they should both be up for coach of the year.

Last week, Tony Romo needed to be benched.  He couldn't manage a game.  He wasn't a leader.  The team didn't follow him.  They didn't respect him.

A week later, with a notch in the win column, he's one of the NFL's elite.

Last week, the team was doomed.  The season was over.  They might as well hang it up, and try again next year.

A week later, with a notch in the win column, they are Superbowl bound once again.  Oh, what a difference a week makes.

Oh, what a difference a win makes.
