First the QB play. Bledsoe and the first team needs more work they did not look sharp at all. Bledsoe still has the arm for sure but is still slow getting the ball off. However, on a couple of those plays he did not have time to throw; Dan Marino couldn’t have gotten the ball off in the time he had of one or two of those plays. So the O-Line is going to have to step it up. I think Romo may have laid to rest the idea of bringing back Vinny. At least I would have hoped he did. His throws were crisp and on the money and he threw with touch as well on a couple of plays. Some QBs never learn to throw a touch pass. He had the good fortune of having Witten in the game with him and the extreme bad fortune of having Tucker in the game with him. I feel certain that they would have had a TD on his 2nd drive had it not been for the many holding calls and mis-ques beyond Romo’s control. Henson showed enough to not get cut. He was sharp on many of his passes but some of them just made you wonder “What the hell was that?”. He did have Crayton in the game with him at least part of the time and they made some nice hookups. But the thing that kept most of Henson’s drives going was Tyson Thompson. As for RB play; Julius did not get enough work to even get comfortable and the starting O-Line once again disappointed. He did not look great but then again he did not have the lanes to run in and no outside plays were called for him. He does have the speed to get outside. Anthony Thomas did not get much work but looked pretty good in his limited role, solid but not spectacular. The same could pretty much be said for Marion Barber as well, solid but not spectacular. However, Tyson Thompson really impressed me. The dude is fast and can run with power as well; while not as elusive or nifty as Julius he just has blazing speed. I have now officially jumped on the Tyson Thompson bandwagon and feel (at this point) that he should be the guy to be the number two behind Julius. As for the WR corps the ONLY one to impress was Crayton. The play that got called back in the backward drive was very impressive. It showed his desire and drive to be a great football player. He was also the only receiver out there giving Henson a consistent target later in the game. And on the O-Line I think that Gurode did not really establish himself as a starting caliber C and I thought Al Johnson looked much better. Of course they were going against different opponents so the jury is still out. Meanwhile Flozell stunk up the joint; that was about as poor of a performance as I have seen from him since he was a rookie. At the Tackles I have a feeling that Rob Pettiti will be our starter come opening day. Rob had a solid game and had only a couple of rookie mistakes. Rogers lost his starting job last night either way; if he is injured for real then he will be out long enough for Rob to take it away from him. And if he was just being cautious because he had a twinge then BP is going to think he is just a Wuss and needs to grow a pair; and I by the way would have to agree. I am less and less impressed with Rogers and I have never been on his bandwagon all that much. He runs to the trainer with every little tweak or twinge or he “can’t get comfortable” on the right side. It is time for him to stop whining and go play some damn football or go find a new job and quit wasting our time. On the defense it was hard to tell a great deal about how that is going to work. They looked pretty good out there for the most part. Newman looked a lot better than last year and made some good plays and made solid tackles; he had one play that did not look good but he made the tackle at least. Glenn didn’t get his named called much which is a good thing for a cover corner; he seemed to have his man covered so well they didn’t throw at him. Henry is a beast and looks to be worth every penny we paid him; score one big one from the FA market. Roy Williams was back to doing what he does best and I was happy to see him laying the wood once again up on the LOS. Davis was a bit disappointing in his play; he should have had the tackle at least or better yet the breakup on that TD pass to Fitzgerald. Ware looked pretty good though he didn’t really get a chance to do his thing since ‘Zona was playing so much 3 wide stuff. But Ware did look pretty good in coverage for a former DE who has never had to cover before. It was hard to get a real sense of how Canty was doing but he was always in the mix and around the ball or the QB. I think he will be fine. Had a few other random thoughts but this is getting long so I’ll leave it at that.
