I know that teams need to go "next man up" - but we've lost Rat, Lissemore, Murray, Costa, Church, and Sean Lee for substantial periods. And we played with a not healthy Witten for several games. These are big losses and they hurt in close games
I'll chalk that one up to trotting out a formation that plays right into the defenses hands.
Dallas has a weak OL. They barely win one-on-one's on a consistant basis.
You can't let a defense stack the line when you're 5 guys up front can't get it done when they don't stack the line. Adding Parnell, an even weaker player than what is on the field, isn't helping.
After watching the OL get zero push on the goal line in back to back plays last week, there's no way Dallas should have given the Falcons the same opportunity to stop them.
They should not have gone back to that formation.
