The playcalling was epic. You're getting 5 yards a pop on the ground so let's have Romo start throwing bombs into double coverage.

Yeah, the 3rd pick pretty much set the stage for the rest of the game. Up 24-20 at the end of the 3rd quarter, running game is dominating, ball in Giants territory. A TD would have made it very tough for the Giants to mount a comeback.

I dunno what you're talking about. Seems like a great spot to run a shotgun 4 wide bomb to your 4th receiver on first down. What could go wrong?

Still uncertain. Given our depth, it wouldn't shock me if he was just a goalline back for the Carolina game.

Re: Dallas Cowboys 09 Thread - Addition by Subtraction?

Granted I didn't get to watch the game closely as it was on in the background at the restaurant I'm working at, but I just don't get the lack of pass rush we're getting. How does a team with DeMarcus Ware and Jay Ratliff not get more pressure on the QB? I mean was Greg Ellis really this important?

The more and more you look at holes on this defense the more and more you gringe thinking about taking Bobby Carpenter at 18 three years ago. I think I'm just left wondering if this team has too many more games like this. Does Wade Phillips see week 17?

We didn't have pass rush because the Giants pretty much put on a blocking clinic. I'm not saying thats an excuse, but clearly it's not a pattern or something with the current defense, given we led the league in sacks last year. I think for a day, their OL just played out of their minds, and our DLine played super mediocre(in pass rush, we played awesome in rush defense).

If we play "like this" obviously Wade could be fired. But against most teams we still win that game. I don't think Romo is going to throw 3 horrible INT's everygame. As much as I want Wade gone next year, I'm not entirely sure he's to blame for this one.

Re: Dallas Cowboys 09 Thread - Addition by Subtraction?

Yeah thats probably true. To me Wade is just sorta there. He's kinda like a blob not really getting in the way of anything not really helping much either. I mean I'm not saying he's just a figure head but essentially you could say he is. I more saying Wade teeters gentlely back and forth between what he knows about football and what he doesn't know about football. I'm not sure the Cowboys come out ahead on that scale often enough to justify him as the head coach.


Edit: Also I sure as hell would of had Mike Singletary come in here back when Parcells left and the job was open.

PFT is reporting that MBIII will miss at least one game. Who will be the better fantasy player in his absence, Felix Jones or Tashard Choice?

Re: Dallas Cowboys 09 Thread - Addition by Subtraction?

depends on your league settings... if its ppr league or if rushing yards aren't awarded at a 10 yards = 1pt, something higher like 20 yards = 1pt then you should go with Felix b/c he will likely due significant damage on screen plays and other passes out of the backfield. But I think both of them are just as likely to put one in the end zone and I think Tashard is the favorite to total more rushing yards.

bump for the 'Boys winning on MNF!
I have such a love/hate thing going with Felix right now. Thank god for Choice being the most solid 3rd RB around.

Is it me, or does anyone think one of the biggest problems this season so far has been the playcalling of Jason Garrettt?

Re: Dallas Cowboys 09 Thread - Addition by Subtraction?

Another pathetic performance all-around today. Some thoughts...

1) Is it possible they are now over-managing Romo? He's been overshooting a lot of receivers all season, and he's going to make mistakes, but he has to be able to move around and let things play out, like he did on the 4th down pass to Hurd. Of course, he needs time to do that, which brings me to #2.

2) The O-line got whupped. They seemed very unprepared for, and didn't do much to adapt to Denver's schemes. Yes, Romo held the ball too long at times as well, but the performance up front was underwhelming at best.

3) I think this game will be on NFLN's replay roster this week, and I'll be curious to see Denver's secondary scheme. What was it about what they did down-field that made Romo hold the ball more than usual? I want to know what it is to see if its something that Dallas could be emulating, because something needs to be done on that side of the ball. The lack of a consistent pass rush is putting too much pressure on the secondary. They did make some plays today, but as seen on the big play to Marshall late, if you bend too much, you will break (though he did push off on the play).

4) Too many dumb penalties is the hallmark of this team. Until the coaching changes, this won't change. So at some point I guess I should be complacent about it, but that probably won't happen.

2-2 is not satisfactory for this team. But I don't see how it will get much better with the way it's been going.

Re: Dallas Cowboys 09 Thread - Addition by Subtraction?

I just don't know what to think about Romo anymore. Even when he made some bad decisions, he was still ridiculously accurate, and a lot of his bad decisions were based off of being over aggressive, not mis reading defenses.

This year, it's like he's just scared to death to make a mistake and isn't playing his game. He misses open receivers, he's not reading defenses the way he used to, and his lack of passion on the bench is even more obvious than ever.

It's almost like I feel that he's just going through the motions, and not enjoying himself anymore. Maybe I'm just reading too much into it, I dunno.

I always am a Romo apologist because I know how ridiculously hard it is to find a good QB in this league, especially when you don't have a top draft pick. This team is way to talented to lose enough games to go that route. But something is seriously wrong with this team at the moment.

While we're talking about issues though, this Roy Williams trade/contract is one of the bigger mistakes in the Jerry era. RW is one of the least athletic looking WR's I've ever seen right now. We're paying a fortune to him over the next couple of years. Ugh.

Re: Dallas Cowboys 09 Thread - Addition by Subtraction?

It's becoming very clear that Parcells' departure is the worst thing that could've happened to Tony Romo. Parcells would let him play, and if he made a mistake, he'd smack him back into shape or show him what to do from it. He'd also deflect a lot of the media's junk. Now, with all the spotlight that comes with the position, he's got no one there to help him through, and I think it is all getting to him. There was something, aside from questions on talent and lack of strong competition at E. Ill, that let him slide through the draft, and perhaps it is the mental side.

I also wholeheartedly agree about Roy Williams. We can look at a lot of bad draft picks too, but RW clearly is playing more like an anchor than a sail in the offense. He was clearly lost playing 2nd fiddle to TO as well last year (while nicked), so I don't know where he fits.

Dare i say JJ should find a way to trade for Crabtree when he can in the spring (of course 30 other teams could say that too)? I think Alvin Harper was the last 1st round receiver Dallas drafted. So that leads me to believe he won't do it next year either, especially since there will be other places of need, like LB and S.

Bringing in Crabtree isn't going to help. It's just giong to cause more commotion and media attention which seems to be what hurts Romo.

Re: Dallas Cowboys 09 Thread - Addition by Subtraction?

I just watched the game on tivo. Romo clocking it on 2nd and goal at the end is absolutely inexcusable. You have 2 more seconds to audible something. Why waste 1 of your 3 shots at tying the game? Why not just always have a play ready when you're inside the 20, like a fade, that's just like a clock? One of those things that separates a well-coached team from a poorly coached on imo. And as a Chiefs fan I have a lot of experience in what poorly coached teams do of late.

That was the weird part, it really looked like he was calling a play...then gave up or something and just clocked it.

That's a place where RW in the game maybe that happens. I'm not sure any of the other receivers have the ups. Bennett perhaps? But that still needs the right match-up, which you may not get in hurry up.

It doesn't even have to be a jump ball, it can be any play that has several short quick options. Any amount of unpreparedness we have, they are going to have several times over thanks to the quickness of the snap.
