I just watched the game, again, on NFL Network.
Except for Newman's dropped pick six, he played a very good game in the first half. That ball was a duck, too. The ball was fluttering like a falling bird. Still, Terence Newman should make that play.
Newman played press for most of the game and appeared to play good. Nicks caught a ball for 26 yards (2nd half), and it looked like cover 2. Newman looked his worst on Manningham's dropped ball in the end-zone. It looked like he was running in mud.
You are right. I don't understand why Newman was playing off Manningham so far on 4th and 3. That was a bad mistake.
Nevertheless, the Cowboys lack of a pass rush was a real issue in this game. Furthermore, the two big busts in the secondary were killer. Newman didn't have any thing to do with those two big plays.
Felix Jones looked unbelievable in this game. Jones was spectacular in this game, as a runner, receiver, and pass protector.
