It was said on the broadcast yesterday that Garrett commented that he would run the ball every play if he could. The Cowboys show no urgency to move the ball down the field and score points until they get behind. In the second half yesterday we started seeing a more fast paced offense with Romo going down the field. Once the Cowboys were in deep trouble Garrett finally decided to open things up.
[View Full Quote]The Cowboys need to start being more aggressive at the start of games and try putting some TD's on the board instead of waiting for the opponent to strike first and gain confidence. This is one of the lowest scoring Cowboy teams I can remember they've only scored 30 points or more once this season and it took 21 points by the defense and special teams to achieve that. If the Cowboys continue this lack of aggression offensively early in games they're going be playing from behind the rest of the season. The defense sure isn't good enough to win games.
This is so frustrating. You have an anemic offense in yesterday's first half and Garrett does nothing to change things up, nothing. Even on the first drive of the second half they took 6 minutes to get a FG. This after Cleveland had already taken 5 minutes in their first drive.
