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.
