IRVING, Texas (AP) — Standing on the sideline, scowling at the pain of a banged-up right elbow and a separated left shoulder, all Brett Favre could do was watch Tony Romo impersonate him. The kid was good. Too good for Favre and the Green Bay Packers. The Wisconsin native who spent all week denying Favre was his childhood hero sure played a lot like a young No. 4 Thursday night – full of moxie and joy, but needing a bit of a high-wire act to send the Dallas Cowboys past the Packers 37-27 and into the lead for home-field advantage throughout the NFC playoffs.
It was great game and the Pack has nothing to be ashamed of. They played well and will meet the ‘Boys again in January. The QB who came in for Favre really played well, and was good to see well Green Bay kept together while Favre was out. It’s just a shame the cable companies wont bundle NFL as part of a basic package-the NFL want about .70 cents a subscriber, compared this with other networks who demand upwards of 3.00 per subscriber. I dont know what role Charter has in this mess, but I can attest to the fact that they are the WORST CABLE COMPANY BAR NONE.
I just hope this can be straightened out, a lot of folks missed a great game last night..
