There’s not many happy faces amongst the legions of Dallas Cowboys fans around the globe. Despite seemingly winning just about every significant statistical battle against the Washington Redskins, the Cowboys fell short in the only one that matters – the final score.
It’s hard to make the claim that Dallas lost because of atrocious offensive line play, but let’s face it, they played without two of their premiere O-linemen, Kyle Kosier and Marc Colombo. And Colombo’s replacement, Alex Baron, had drive-killing penalties on more than one occassion, including on the final play of the game that negated what would have been a game-winning touchdown grab by Roy Williams.
The good news is both Kosier and Colombo are expected to return to practice on Wednesday, which in my mind at least, signifies that they should be available for next Sunday’s game against the Bears barring any setbacks. Fingers crossed.
