I think the Cowboys will be fine. What we are seeing is the result of not playing anyone during the preseason. Both Dak and Zeke need to play to be effective. They will keep improving for the next few weeks. The D is looking fairly strong.

Did he miss Gathers or did Gathers just run a ****ty half-assed route? We’ll never know but Gathers looked kinda clunky in his route like he wasn’t going full speed. I said the same as you at first and then watching the replay I was like maybe that was Gathers.

He said it was cramps after the game. Not hamstring like the announcers reported when I posted that

Looked like a completely different offense from last week. Maybe it was not playing them in the preseason! The D is for real. Hopefully the offense keeps getting better.

I’m not getting the ‘it looked like a completely different offense than last week’ comments. No, it really didn’t although you gotta give Dak all the credit for that last 80 yard drive to put the game away. There’s got to be more offensive production unless this defense is the ‘85 Bears. then we may be able to get away with what they’re producing.

That defense is legit and is only going to get better with other players and more experience, the offense will get better as well, not sure if it will get good enough to contend for the division title but a wildcard could come into play.

Yea that Rico over throw in the endzone had me scratching my head too! His defender fell down and all Dak had to do was hit him with the ball. Maybe he saw that and rushed the throw? Who knows, but they don't get any easier that that one he missed!

Looking at the replay i would say he missed him with an over throw. He didn't have much more room in the back of the endzone!

To each their own but the replay I saw had Rico 7-8 yards from the rear corner pylon angling that way on his cut when the ball was thrown in front of him. Looked like to me Dak was expecting him to be a little further into his route and he wasn't. IIRC, it looked like the DB that stumbled slowed Rico down a bit.


That being said it is no secret Dak needs to improve his accuracy and Rico needs to improve his route running.....so it can be construed either way....which I why I said, we'll never know the real truth.

Thats true.
Its hard to believe Rico hasn't played high school or college football and is out there running around in the NFL! Trying to replace JW. I guess Jerry's trying to save some money at that position too!

Kinda sounds like there could be a chance Dez could end up back here. Stephen Jones didn’t shoot it down when asked.

Not so fast. I think the defense will be/is much improved. But, without the blitzing there wasn't a whole lot of pressure.

I recall a few years back, the Cowboys were crushing the Bears in either the season opener or the second game. Chicago had no answer...until they changed to a screen play, and a couple of quick passes. Then the game changed ever so fast and Chicago kicked butt from there till the end of the game. The first time a good offense strikes because the blitzes, we'll be back to normal defense.

the Giants almost did that with 3 good running plays, but reverted back to the Giants.

I think the defense will be good enough to compete, but will they get support from the offense?

The defense has been really good for the last 10 games, they blitz because they can, look for them to be near the top in most categories barring injuries or a total colaps by the offense.

Offense played a lot better this week than last week in my opinion. Dak's throws were there and he was quicker to throw the ball this week. If they keep getting better and Zeke can get through the line when he has the ball, I don't see a reason the team can't have a winning season this year as long as the defense plays like they did this week all season.
Still think cutting Bailey was a mistake though.

I hope it continues, but we'll see when they come against a good adaptive offense/coach.
