With absolutely no playmakers stepping up, our team losses once again. This time at the hands of the Denver Broncos. Felix Jones, probably our biggest threat to make a big play, was sidelined. Our team could not generate any consistent offense at all in Denver last Sunday afternoon.
I am a huge Tony Romo supporter just for the simple fact that I remember the years in between him and Aikman, not to mention the Brad Johnson and Brooks Bollinger games from last season. But seriously, what the heck is going on here? Our offense is horrible. Outside of the running game, its pathetic. We could not get anything downfield against the very good Denver secondary.
For those who blame Romo for the loss, he did what he did best after the Brandon Marshall catch, he led Dallas down the field on a few very good plays.
One question I do have is, if we have the best tight end in the league in Jason Witten, why did we not at least attempt to get him the ball on the goal line, since we could not run it?
Also, why in the heck would you try and get it to Sam Hurd instead of Patrick Crayton? Especially when Hurd is being covered by arguably the best man-to-man cover corner in the game.
This game made absolutely no sense to me and today I was truly mad at the Dallas Cowboys.
Yes we will probably go to Kansas City next week and win in Arrowhead Stadium, but honestly this is not a Super Bowl team. I am highly frustrated with the Cowboys. I am really thinking they might just need to blow the entire coaching staff up, and get new schemes.
Our offense is predictable and simple. We have a lack of playmakers at the reciever spot. None of them can get open in man-to-man coverage, ironically the exact situation that Romo is best in.
Our O-line which is supposed to be very good is doing great on run blocking, but Romo needs more time. Romo must read and react to the blitzes faster.
The remaining schedule, not in any particular order, includes vs. Atlanta, vs. San Diego, @ New Orleans, @ NY Giants, Philly and Washington (twice still). If we do not buckle down and get with it, we will miss the playoffs again and it will be with a worse record than 9-7. I can guarantee that.
