FalconFanSince1970 Posted November 11, 2017 Share Posted November 11, 2017 Well them Cowpokes are here. Will they break our hearts again? Even though we won the last two match ups, we are 10-14 against them overall and 0-2 in the playoffs. Long time Falcon fans remember the heartbreak. The first dose came in the 1978 playoffs. Our franchise's inaugural post season. We were fresh off our first playoff victory against the Eagles and headed to Dallas for the divisional round. We were hanging tough when we rocked Roger Staubach and sent him to the locker room with a head ache. On comes their punter Danny White who put a dagger through our hearts. Two years later in 1980 we had assembled a super squad led by Bart, WA31 and the head bangin gritz blitz defense. Favored to get to the Super Bowl that year, we jumped out to an early lead after a wild card bye, only to see Too Tall Jones jump offside and stumble into a TFL that turned the tide. In comes that punter again. He ripped through the gritz blitz and crushed our hopes with a last minute TD to Drew Pearson. The hurt lingered for 32 years until the farty niners put a deeper dagger in our 2012 NFC Championship hearts. Lord please don't let these Zekeless cowpukes waltz into the Benz tomorrow and end our season in week 10, before a national TV audience. Our hearts can't take much more. Rise mofos!
