Everyone also does realize that Pittsburgh was essentially in the same position at CB that we are at ILB, and then one of them got hurt in the game.

Injuries are part of the game, if that the case, they should have destroy the Cowboys with all the backups they had playing , credit to the front office for finding guys " off the street" and plugging them into the lineup

I disagree. One could also argue that the Boys should have ran over the Steelers since they were the healthier team.

The Steelers have more injured players than the Boys. The Boys are relatively healthy on offence while Pittsburgh's OL has been ravaged by injuries, Roethlisberger is playing hurt, and the Steelers were without their #1 RB. Meanwhile, their defence, like the Boys defence, has been riddled with injuries, and some of the starters (e.g., Harrison, Woodley) were playing hurt.

Leaving everything else aside (hey, as long as we're going to ignore the point of the thread, why not go all the way?)They BENCHED their #1 RB. He was not injured.

Before you make categorical statements, maybe do some homework first. Baltimore, Buffalo, Detroit, Chicago, and Houston have more guys on the IR than the Boys.

And while the Steelers may not have as many guys on IR than the Boys, they did have a lot of injured players who did not suit up, including 2 starting OL and a starting CB. They lost another CB during the game. They also had injured guys plays, such as Roethlisberger, Woodley, and Harrison. The Boys' offence had no inactives, although on defence they have been decimated by injuries.

To be fair, we also played with a lot of injures... not including the ~10 on IR.

Murray, Bryant, Ware, Claiborne, Ratliff, Peprah, Sims, Felix

The Boys' offence was pretty much healthy other than Bryant. The Boys had a big advantage against the Steelers' defence.

Defensively, though, there's no question the Boys were riddled with injuries, but the Steelers had a lot of injured players on offence. As such, the Steelers' offence only had a slight advantage over the Boys' defence.

A little more about Witten.
Quote:
Jason Witten has 97 catches and with six more, he will set the record for most receptions in a single season by a tight end. Witten could also become just the second Cowboys player to record 100 catches in a single season. Michael Irvin set the franchise record with 111 receptions in 1995. Witten has been able to pile up the receptions after an early season case of the drops. Witten had seven drops in his first 46 targets this season but has none in last 80 targets.
IOW, if it weren't for the spleen, he'd already have the TE record, and be almost assured of the franchise record for receptions (which is definitely in reach). Not bad for a guy that's supposedly in decline.

Romo broke his own franchise record for most yards in a season and is 315yds away from 5k going into DC

Witten broke an NFL Record for receptions by a TE and will look to chase down Irvin's franchise record for most receptions next week (needs 8 to tie I think)
