  • It was a good win. I'm just hoping Felix isnt too hurt. He is just an amazing talent, if he could just stay healthy, the guy looks like one of the best backs in the league.

    21 carries 212 yards on the year.

    Thanks BoneKrusher^

    • Overall I'm fairly pleased with the victory. We put some pressure on Delhomme and forced 3 TO's and had 3 sacks. The defense held the running game in check, but had some sloppy tackling that I'm not all that pleased with.

      Offensively we keep running the ball very effectively. I knew we'd have a top 5 running attack this year, but didn't expect it to be like this. I would like to see us go down the field a little more, but I'm happy with the way Romo managed the game. He doesn't need to light it up like he did in week 1 to be successful in this offense.

      Our special teams are a huge turnaround from what we had last year.

      My biggest concern is the health of our RB's. It seems that both Felix and Barber are becoming a little fragile. While I like Choice, I just don't see him as being that RB that teams will fear like they do with Felix and Barber. Hopefully Barber is fully health this week and that Felix's injury isn't too bad.

      • TC will be the starter eventually as he is the best inside runner and is used to being a workhorse at GT whereas MB3 and Cat have always been part of a tandem and are proving to be somewhat injury prone.

        • Win against a scrub team with a terrible QB, nothing to hang your hat on.

          What everyone should be concerned with is Roy Williams not earning his contract. Take away his 66 yard TD on a blow coverage and you know what you get? 7 catches, 113 yards, 0 TD's, 2 drops on would be TD's over 3 games.

          Nice, so we gave up a 1st and a 3rd plus 45 mil for this scrub? Like i've been saying all along -- dude is a loser.

          Miles Austin? Where are you?

          Longhorns or whoever it is, where is that sig quote you have of me saying Austin becomes irrelevant without T.O.? That sig quote that you have left on your page for the past year because you were sooooo sure Miles was ready to break out? I'd love to hear your thoughts.

          Wanna know what's even more pathetic? We currently have the best running game in the entire league and these scrub receivers still can't get open.

          If we had this running game and continuity with the o-line last year, T.O. would have been ******** on people.

          and yeah, im sure everyone will point to Owens stats -- well point to his QB first. Edwards sucks, he's a check down queen. Lee Evans isn't putting up numbers either.

            I'm not going to argue that Car is "good", but this was a 12-4 team last year that was desperate for a win and came out and played probably the best they could.

            We still won despite some self inflicted wounds early.

            You know though, this team can't win for losing with some folks.

            Every week is it's own entity in this league. The defense played well and the offense didn't turn the ball over. It wasn't perfect, but I think it showed some growth is some areas.

            You are the one that comes across here as a loser.

            I'm not really concerned about him playing up to his contract. He is not a top 10 WR, but he's hardly a "scrub".


            Miles Austin? Where are you?
            Frankly, with all the two TEs, he just hasn't had as many opportunities. I think he will get more opportunities. Be patient.

            Oh, boy. Here we go! TO has been a receiver in decline for more than a season. Why is it so difficult for people to see? Don't just look at his stats this year. Go back and look at his stats with Dallas in his last 15 games or so. Take out the SF game, and he averaged about 4 catches and less than 50 yards.

              First, you're a ******* loser ******, not to mention a dipshit.

              Second, I could respond individually to each one of your stupid comments but ill just leave it at this -- HOMER. I've already watched Owens get behind defenses 4 times this season for deep bombs (all would ave been 60+ yard td's) but Trent missed him on all 4. There is a 5th, but T.O. dropped it.

              Contrast that to RW who can't get behind a ******* safety and can't catch a fade, which is his forte. What does this guy do? Exploit blown coverages? Great we have Austin, Crayton, and Hurd to do that.

              Not concerned with his contract? You should be. We're locked into that **** and it's going to hurt us in 2-3 years when the return on that investment is the same **** we're getting now and it prevents us from drafting a stud WR or going after a legitimate one (Brandon Marshall?) in FA.

              PATHETIC play by RW. especially when you have the best run game in the league commanding 8 in the box.

              T.O.>RW

              Austin= Nothing without T.O.

              Romo = struggling mightily without T.O. -- Not because Romo isn't good, but because none of these scrubs can get open outside of Witten. He needs weapons.

              I think Olgletree should be made active on game days to bring a new dimension to the WR core. Quick, Shifty, Burner speed.

                  Take that cowboycock out of you're throat. We barely beat 2 scrub teams. A few plays go differently (Muhammed TD on jenkins stands) and the momentum is totally different in this game. If the bucs don't blow 3 plays on defense for huge scores, that game could end differently to.

                  Ill admit, we could be 3-0 -- but imo we could also be 0-3.

                  This team has shown nothing, other than the fact that they refuse to embrace what they actually are -- a power run team.

                  I wont be sold on this Cowboys team until I see some explosiveness in the pass game.

                  our defense is not good enough to rely solely on the run game, we need to be a great passing team. Problem is, we don't have any good receivers and we're stacked at RB. we are built to run but we need to be able to pass.

                  • Good game last night in that we won, bad in that there are still a ton of problems on this team.

                    The Bad:

                    -Play calling was inconsistent on offense. There were some wrinkles I liked: the draw plays we saw so many times, throwing in the wildcat. There were also some bonehead calls: obviously the two throws on the goal line, the innability to get the ball in the hands of our receivers, etc.

                    -Austin and Hurd were nowhere in this game. There was no effort to get them the ball and there was no effort on their part to warrant getting it. Just bad all around.

                    -Carp continues to take horrible angles. At least he's consistent.

                    -Not a lot of people have been talking about this, but Ware isn't playing well. He had two tackles and no sacks last night. None on the year. This can't be the guy who had 20 sacks last year AND is on his contract year...

                    -We need to go DE this offseason. Spears is so mediocre.

                    -If we are going to be calling man-to-man cover 1, we need to make sure Hamlin has his **** together. He obviously didn't last night. He wasn't watching the QB and he wasn't breaking quick on the ball. He needs to put in some work this week to make sure he can play on a high level.

                    -The tackling in the 1st half was horrible, especially in the secondary.

                    -This team isn't going to be able to win on a consistent basis unless we stop making stupid mistakes at critical points in the game. Folk should have made that first kick. Phillips' flinch on the goal cost us four points. If it wasn't bad enough that Felix's leg whip cost us 15, we then committed two more penalties and then punted. I can't even remember how many times last night we were in 3rd and 19, 3rd and 28, enormous distances just because we're not able to limit the mistakes.

                    -Is it just me or does Roy have dead feet half the time he catches the ball? I remember two catches specifically where he was just standing flat footed when the ball hit his hands. To add to that, he dropped that easy catch in the corner. The call wasn't a fantastic one, but Roy had the ball in his hands and those four points are as much Roy's fault as they are Garrett's or John Phillips'.

                    The Good:

                    -Romo looked sharp. Stayed calm in the pocket, moved when he had to. He made a bad throw or two but for the most part, he was efficient and smart.

                    -The OL was good for the most part. There was that bone-headed hold by Colombo, but for the most part, good.

                    -Rat was awesome. He's easily the best player in the front 7 other than Ware.

                    -Our depth at RB never ceases to amaze me. All three of our RBs could start on plenty of teams. Jones was explosive and I think he's definitely everything we hoped Julius would become. Choice can just flat out play football. We have no problems running the ball.

                    -Newman had a great game once he settled down. I was worried for a while there that he wouldn't figure out Smith, but he ended up frustrating Smith enough to cause a huge mistake that sealed the game in that INT.

                    -Keith Brooking had a pretty good game.

                    -Mike Jenkins is well on his way to being a good CB. Mistakes are what you expect from a guy that young, but he also made some very good plays.

                    -Victor Butler showed a lot of promise. I'll have my eye on him next week.

                    -We made some very good half time adjustments. It's good to know this coaching staff can realize what's going wrong and fix it.


                    All in all, we need to cut down on the stupid penalties, run the football, and keep working on getting more of a push up-front from guys like Igor, Spears, and especially Ware.

                      What the hell is the matter with you?

                      I would go through and individually rebutt your idiotic points but it would be a waste of time, since you obviously don't look at facts when formulating your opinions.

                      We have played 3 games this year. Of those two, we've faced a cover 2 shell in 2 of them. When you're going against a team that plays that coverage, you aren't going to get plays down the field. You just aren't. The key is getting it going underneath and staying patient, and then making them pay with the run. We did the second part against the Giants, but not the first part and it cost us the game. In this game, we did both and we won the game. This offense just posted 450 yards in a game where we didn't have any late game trash yardage while playing from behind to pad the yardage. Maybe you should pay attention and realize that Hurd and Austin only got into the game for maybe 10 to 20 plays each this game, and that they were facing constant double teams on the outside. As a result, Witten had his way with them and we dominated in the running game. Its a game of tradeoffs.


                      Roy Williams is not TO, he never will be and we shouldn't expect him to be. He doesn't have to be a prime TO to earn his contract. Yesterday he made the plays he needed to make to help us win, with the notable exception of that dropped fade route. He's doing just fine.


                      I can't for the life of me figure out what's the matter with a person who seems to relish the failures of his own team. You're so caught up in your own genius that you would rather be right than see your team succeed. I don't understand it.

                        • How long is Jason Williams going to be out for?

                          Comment


                          • I don't think the team is built to throw the ball deep Burns. It's built for a mid range to short range passing attack IMO. There'll be more TEs and RBs getting passes in the offense, and the wideouts will be used to get first downs in the 10-20 yard range. Austin is the only "burner" on the team, so I'm betting that we won't see so many deep balls this year. T.O. is gone so you lose that element with him, but if they can manage to get first downs then I'm not bothered by it. They're averaging about 430 yards a game right now so not having a deep threat isn't that bad right now. I know that's an inflated number since it's early, but they're not having a problem getting first downs. Their only problem is finishing and putting points on the board, but considering that they scored 31 points in each of the first two weeks, jumping down their throat for not being able to score would be too knee jerk to one bad offensive game. The offense played pretty well two games, and they had problems putting the stamp down when it came to points last night. I don't think it's worry time yet until they have a game to where the opposing defense shuts down whatever they try all night, and they end up with 250 total yards or something similar. I really don't think the offense is where it could be right now. They've got some kinks to work out, and they've still managed to get almost 400 yards every game so far. When the season low is getting 378 yards, you've gotta be doing something right.

                                That's a good question. I wonder if he could be brought up to speed well enough to take over for Barbie? Carp is just awful.
