With news breaking out of Cowboys camp that Dez Brant is slowly returning to practice this week for the Cowboys. You have to wonder if the Cowboys are going to have enough firepower later on to get back in NFC East contention and the playoffs. While the team has been decimated by the loss of Tony Romo (they haven’t won a game without him) the team still has to find a way to win a couple games down the stretch to give this team a chance for Romo to come back and save their season. The Cowboys almost have to look at their season as a baseball game, and they have to get it to their closer (Romo) who will come in at the end of the season and get this team to the playoffs. Before that however they have to be able to beat some very good ball clubs which include the Seattle Seahawks who are just finding their stride again. Also they will have to beat the Panthers who have been red hot this season and are still undefeated. That’s if Tony Romo comes back by November 26th, there is still no telling when Romo will officially be ready to go. That’s if Romo will even be able to go again this year. You never know how long a collarbone injury is going to take with a quarterback and players tend to rush it when it trying to get back on the field. The last thing the Cowboys want to do is force their franchise player to play before he is physically healthy. Regardless if Romo is able to go or not, getting Bryant back will certainly help this ball club. Whether Matt Cassel or Brandon Weeden is in the game they will get a huge uplift from having Dez Bryant back on the field and that number 88 receiver lined up out wide. Were talking about a guy who had 16 touchdown receptions last season and has god given talents that are far superior than most. Bryant truly is an x-factor and getting him back couldn’t come at a better time for the Boys.
