Did you see the punter celebrating? What about the water boy? Are they all pissed off at Jason too? That is crazy media hype, Terrell has nothing but good to say about Jason. Terrell is a team player in Dallas. And they are both good friends on and off the field, the reporters in Dallas are all saying that the National media are out of their minds. In f use of both, Terrell and Jason. And Terrell will tell you the same about all his team mates.
Was the punter on the field when Witten caught the TD? Was the water boy on the field when Witten caught the TD? NO! But T.O. was, and I didn't see him happy and mixing it up in the endzone with the other players. It was a big come-from-behind drive and usually everybody is ecstatic when that happens, but where was T.O.? I was wondering where T.O. had gone to, and the cameras finally found him. He was totally at the far far end of the sideline box, down on one knee, right at the sideline, helmet off, staring blankly out onto the field with that emotionless i'm-not-happy stare we've seen so many times before. No one was around him, and he wasn't with his happy teammates. Someone came up behind him (they weren't dressed out, so I don't know if it was the coaching staff or an injured player or what) and gave him a "congrats for winning" tap on the shoulder, and T.O. turned and gave a split-second acknowledgement and then turned to stare out over the field again with that sullen, pouting no-one-paid-attention-to-me-out-on-the-field gaze.
So when I saw this happen, I went "whoa!" what's going on here? T.O. can't really be upset just because Romo didn't look his way during that last drive, can he? is what I wondered. T.O. only caught 3 balls for 21 yards the entire game, and yeah, you and I know that if the defenses are doubling hard on T.O. then Romo has to take what the defense is giving him, which happened to be Witten. But does T.O. know that? Does he know that in his heart, or is this the first crack in T.O.'s thin veneer of "team first" attitude?
If I simply missed T.O. celebrating in the endzone, then this is a non-issue, but that is why I'm asking if anyone else noticed him being happy when Witten caught the TD, because I sure didn't.
