The Cowboys lose for the second time in four games—and, just as we saw in Seattle, it was an embarrassing meltdown of epic proportions.
Tonight’s game left me wondering if I was watching Monday Night Football or Saturday Night Live, because the Cowboys are proving they are not-yet-ready-for-primetime-players.
Where to begin? Oh wait, I know.
Dez is a dufus
Tonight, each team fielded a troubled knucklehead at receiver. The difference is that Brandon Marshall leaves the knucklehead behind when he steps onto the gridiron. He is a reliable, big-time play-maker. Dez Bryant, on the other, hand, is a knucklehead on and off the field. From failing to adjust to a blitz to dropping key passes to being lackadaisical in a simple pre-snap shift, Dez did his part to shoot the wheels off the Dallas wagon.
Romo is frustrating
With Tony Romo, it is feast or famine. Make that feast and famine. He is either making incredible moves, extending plays, completing tough passes or he is throwing an inopportune interception.
Frustrating. Not ready for prime time.
Cowboys Stadium looks nice, but…
Jerry Jones built himself a billion dollar playhouse that is an incredible venue for many things. It is does not, however, provide a great home-field advantage. His Cowboys are now 14–13 in the regular season in their new digs.
Jason Garrett has a lot to prove
I have been a staunch supporter of Garrett and Romo. But at some point, the leaders of this team have to provide the kind of leadership that results in success, which means big wins, playoffs and playoff success.
At least DeMarcus Ware is a prime time player
Ware and middle linebacker Sean Lee continue to be the most consistent players on the team. They need some company or this thing is headed for another .500 year.
What else can you say about tonight’s game?
Wait, I know. SNL gave us the answer years ago…
The same guy over paying the two starting guards in the off season is the same guy opening a Victoria's Secret store in a football stadium. NO QB could flourish while getting the amount of pressure Romo got up the middle last night.
It is my belief that three of the picks were the receivers responsibility and one was more a fumble when the o line protection collapsed. The final one was a case of forcing a ball into coverage desperately trying to make something happen trailing by a big margin.
I hope all the Romo haters will be happy when Tony is knocked out this season because it is highly unlikely way he will last the season behind this line.
The lack of attention to detail leads to poor execution but the people simply blame the quarterback because its right in front of them. Hey that's just fans.
The GM, who should know better is driven by hubris and has caused institutional decay to a degree that excellent players like Tony Romo are placed in an unmanageable situation.
The real problem with this team is deep seeded and starts at the very top.
I cannot believe how the integrity of this organization has been destroyed. None of the things that drew all of us to this team so many decades ago exist at all anymore.
I watched the MLB of the Bears laughing at our incompetence last night but hey at least you could buy your wife or girlfriend some lingerie to get your mind off of spending hundreds of dollars to watch that performance.
With this comment, I am in complete agreement. As a football man, Jerry is a joke...and the joke is on the long-suffering fans of his team.
