Out hunting today. Listened to the first quarter. Lost interest. Watched the low and high lights.

In the NFL you can't play with a sense of urgency when ever you feel like it. Your hair better be on fire from start to finish. That's what I get out of it when watching.

Then it comes down to which team makes the fewest mistakes.

They scored enough points to win but the defense gave up too many points so they obviously lost. I am a believer that your 2nd and 3rd tier receivers whom for the Cowboys have looked really good until they are covered by 1st tier defenders. Even so, there were plays to be had that did not come to fruition due to bad throws, dropped balls and bad line play(penalties or missed assignments).

As one of the commentators mentioned on another network, the Cowboys have a multitude of problems when the wheels come off, it’s not like it was just that Dak had a bad day.

Defense played bad in my opinion as far as missing a bunch of tackles. Did the injuries help creat some of this?? No doubt, but the games are played with the players that can play on game day.

Can they play better once some of the starters get back, for sure. At least that is what I am hoping. Go Cowboys!!

Until this game, except maybe the Denver game, the defense has/had been pretty good, not world class, but livable+. But, I believe, as do many others, good defense lives on the heels of a good offense and vice versa. Good offense lessens the time and assault another team can muster.

I'm not REAL sure the defense will be MARKEDLY better when full strength resumes on days where the offense is inept or against and top5 offense.

As someone alluded to above, you just can't turn "a sense of urgency" on and off. Sure, there will be lulls, but had best be ready to go 60 when you hit the field.

Armchair quarterbacks are also afforded the luxury of hindsight.

They were feeble at best. Most of the pi penalties seem to occur on plays where the QB seemed to have time to drink a beer before throwing the ball.

Referring sucked but was equally bad for both sides. Some commentators were say what is obvious to us all. The zebras need to let the players decide the games on the field.

Cowboys deserved to lose that one for sure IMHO. Played uninspired defense.

The Cowboys secondary has sucked for at least 20 consecutive years, itís just who they are. Thatís why it drives me so insane that they over draft, and overpay positions like RB, and LB, and let players at premium positions slip away.

Go Cowboys Go.

Sounds like most of the team will be back tonight. Let’s hope they get rolling and put a lot of points on the Saints. saints have a bunch of injuries but seem to have had the Cowboys # for some time. Let see if the the Boys o-line can have a decent game.

well, I meant that as "are they back". like they're touted as being one of the best lines in football. They haven't shown that lately. I know TSmith has been out, but that is just ONE position, albeit a critical one. But they've been getting PUSHED around.

my thoughts also, they've been "serviceable" the last two, maybe 3 years. A little above the middle of the pack, except Tyron and he's getting so he gets nicked up pretty regular.

Why Zeke is playing now and played the last two games is beyond me. He is struggling with a bum knee…. Freaking coaches need to sit him down.

Seems I remember "ghost of Landry" comments when I said Dak nor Elliot would be THAT GREAT for very long after/during their premier rookie seasons.

Not specifically you Smart, but I wasn't convinced during the fabulous first season. A lot of people thought he was the next great thang. Dak is good, but not great. With Elliott's style of rushing, he wasn't gonna last long. Of course, NFL running backs don't USUALLY last that long.

Just add Dakcuracy to the human error list of things that go on. I would much rather have him than 90% of the other teams QBs. Roger's Mahomes Murray and Brady are better. The rest?
