As my heart heals and we as die hard Cowboy fans lick our wounds, I am going to try and give you my view of the game. I am not going to throw stats at you like I should as a author. Today I am writing this as a FAN ! So don’t read this looking for writing mistakes etc. this is from the heart.
Let’s start with the Stadium and the party… WOW!
That was all I could say last night. Jerry and his family took our past and intertwined it with the present and our future and made it work! I was proud of Cowboy Stadium and all that it stands for and I always will be.
Oh boy, Let’s get to the game. I have been reading how bad our defense was. That is not what I saw. What I saw was our defense standing strong for 3 Quarters. They stopped the run, and the young secondary made some great plays. When you look at the stats you can be fooled if you didn’t watch the game. I saw players that where worn down in the 4th quarter. Ok, yes they should be able to play all 4 quarters I know, but they have alot of young players. The heat didn’t help and time on the field with the turnovers wore them out. I hear the comments I am going to get, but this is how I feel. I wish they would of made some sacks and had some take aways, but overall I think they played hard.
Special Teams was better than last year, but no big plays.
Let’s get to the offense. I thought the line played great. They protected Romo and made holes for Barber, Felix Jones and Choice. I mean major holes that I could of ran through. The backs overall played well. I was impressed with TE Bennett and Witten as always. Roy Williams and Crayton got open most of the game. Miles Austin made plays.
Now to Romo, I really don’t know what to say, but WHAT THE ?! Ok, it might of been nerves. He had the pressure of the world on his shoulders and he had a bad game. He didn’t pick up the Giants defensive changes when he should of and he threw behind on so many plays, but he did put points on the board.
Obviously, when you turn the ball over four times you are going to lose. The Cowboys almost overcame all the crazy turnovers. I thought Garrett’s play calls where right on overall. I did feel he should of been with Romo after the bad plays and he may of been, but on television all they kept showing was Tony sitting alone, no coaches no one to help him through it. That I don’t understand. I will stand behind Tony 100%, he is our quarterback and I will defend him against all the Cowboy Haters out there, but here at LSS we are die hard fans and I have to admit to you that I am worried.
I hope the team stands behind him and gets him through this week of bad press. They all have to look forward to the Monday Night Game against the Panthers.
So there’s my view of the game… you can all go ahead and let me have it…
