What Hurts?

"What hurts?", they asked him after the game.

"What doesn't?", He replied.



Yet he overcame.  They overcame.

Bad snaps.

Receivers running wrong routes.


Half the team playing hurt, the half that was able to play, that is.

Yet they overcame.




They fought.

And they won.

This team..


This team has something that last year's team didn't.  This team has something that this team hasn't had in a long time-- not even the year they went 13-3.  A lot of fluky stuff happened that year.  Stuff that just happened to go the Cowboy's way.  Stuff that hasn't happened since.

But this team has something those teams didn't have.

Call it what you will.

Grit.  Determination.  Backbone.  Toughness.  Dogs in the fight.

HEART.

Call it what you will.

This team has it.



"What hurts?" they asked him after the game.

"What doesn't?" he replied.

That notch in the W column sure doesn't hurt.  Doesn't hurt a bit.
