If there was ever a time to rally the troops…

Hard to see this one coming. Think back to Sunday night September 21. Dallas was rolling over Green Bay in Lambeau. Tell me you didnt at least have the thought of an undeafeated season in your head. Best team in NFC AND NFL. Make your reservations for Tampa.  Hard to believe that was only six short weeks ago. 

Oh, how the mighty have fallen.  

Now 5-4 and in last place in the NFC East and, as hard as it is to believe, the playoffs are far from a sure thing.  Sure the starting QB missed some games. Terrence Newman & Felix Jones being out hurt too.  But all of the Cowboys woes can’t be placed on injured players being out.  There were plenty of signs in the Arizona game that this team was flawed. All this talent and 5 wins in 9 games ?  Where do we go from here?

After all the injuries, poor play and coaching, the PacMan Jones saga and a rough start in the division the season can still be saved!!  One win in Washington can save the season.  Next Tuesday the practice field should look more like the 2008 Cowboys were supposed to:  Romo, Newman, Kosier, F. Jones, A. Spencer and Roy Williams.  Two weeks to rally the troops.  Two weeks to save the season!

From Where I’m Sitting:

-Brad Johnson.  Seems like a nice guy.  Too bad his last NFL pass had to be an interception.

-Finally hit me after 8 weeks yesterday how big a loss the Kyle Kosier is.  Without trying I saw Cory Procter get beat 4 times yesterday

-I really hope that we didn’t waste a first round pick on Roy Williams for 3 catches. I understand that it is unfair to judge him on 3 games with Brad Johnson but lets hope he can make more plays with Romo

-What was Mike Jenkins thinking on the last Giants TD run? 

-I know I’m reaching but did anyone else want to see an onside kick at 28-14?

-I say it every week that I love MB3…but we sure do miss Felix Jones

-Not sure that Witten had a catch yesterday…but man it should say something that he even gave it a go yesterday with a bye coming up..

  1. Roy E Williams has only 3 catches because Johnson’s inconsistency with throwing. Don’t forget he’s only been with this team for what 3 weeks? I’m sure he still has a lot of the playbook to learn. Cowboys got Williams until what 2011? He is going to grow into this team and it will be exciting when that happens!

    You really cant judge Roy Williams by the last 3 games. Even with the weak pass that Johnson threw Roy made a great one handed catch. I have no doubt that when Romo comes back T.O. and ROY will be a deadly combination. Cant wait to watch the touchdown fest. GO COWBOYS!!!!!!!!!

    Im trying to remain strong for this team but im spent just watching them anymore.Ill always love the Cowboys but at the same time I want to know what is going on in Dallas????
    This is the same team (without the injuries) that went 13-3 NFC East champs and 13 pro bowlers and now all of a sudden they lack leadership and heart??
    I see no heart,pride,determination,no sense of urgency,no willingness to lay it all on the line for the man next to them, all I see is a bunch of rich men playing a game they really do not look that interested in playing at all.
    The offensive line which was to be so great is pathetic, how can we evaluate Brad or Brooks when neither of them have had adequate protection consistantly….and let us not forget the o-line is the reason our field general is out in the first place.That line must protect or Romo will be hurt again by the end of the season anyway.Barber cannot get a chance to get going because everytime he even thinks about touching the ball he has 2 defensive lineman on him because that pathetic excuse for a line just isnt protecting. We are the laughing stock of the league and it is absolutely pathetic we are the Dallas Cowboys we have a tradition of excellence rivaled by only a few and now we cant even protect our QB??????
    Landry must be rolling in his grave
    Let me ask this question Cowboys fans how does Bill Cowher sound??? I know most of you are infatuated with Garrett but think about it he is the person running this offense taht has absolutely no rythm to it at all

  4. Cowher is a Defensive coach. What is this team lacking? Consistent defense. Cowher, if willing to, would be a good coach for this offensive team because if you stiffened up the D and settled them down the team could be a MONSTER. I’d be 50/50 with Cowher
