One Silver Lining from Last Night

Okay, this is a bit of a reach, but the one thing that didn't happen in Washington last night was another crippling injury. That, combined with the hope that Marc Colombo and Kyle Kosier will be back this Sunday, suggests that all of those negatives - the embarrassing RT play, the curious way that Jason Garrett decided to compensate for a poor OL, the pathetic oversight to end the first half, Tashard Choice's fumble, David Buehler's missed first FG attempt - all can be self contained in that one game.

Dallas will be back home next week in a winnable game, and, with a healthy OL, the offense can look completely different. The loss may very well cost them in the end, but at least it was one loss - a division road loss - and that can be that. The Eagles, on the other hand, are dealing with the loss of two starters - Leonard Weaver and Jamaal Jackson - for the season and QB concussion issues after their one home loss (albeit to a much better team). As sick to my stomach as I am today, I would be sicker if my team had looked like Dallas or Philly did and knew it wouldn't field 10% of the starting lineup again this season.
