I didn't really get it about Cole Beasley last year. I'm eating crow. One nice thing about seeing him this year is that it looks like he's got Romo's trust, and he's emerging as a chain mover on those 3rd-and-5 plays. I know they are completely different players, but his emerging chemistry with Romo reminds me a little of the trust Aikman had in K-Mart back in the early 90's. Williams' numbers so far, projected over a 16 game season: 41 catches, 705 yards. Way more than I expected for a rookie who supposedly didn't know route trees and caught the ball with his body, especially with Romo's (understandable) love of Dez and Witten. He and Beasley today: 14 combined targets, 12 receptions. I like this trend to the cb's playing less zone and more man. I'm glad to see the coaches make that change, it plays to their db's strengths. I know it's been against RG3 and Foles, and harder tests await. But Foles had a good game last week against a pretty good Tampa defense. And RG3 looked more like the 2012 RG3 today against the Bears. So as bad as Foles looked today, the switch to more man coverage wasn't against a couple of total stiffs. Two of the next three games they'll be facing Stafford and Brees, so we'll know more soon. A lot of the pressure today looked to be coverage pressure. I didn't think the d-line generated huge pressure quickly, but the coverage gave them a chance to keep moving to the qb. Carr in particular looks like a different player when he plays man. Not having rewatched the game yet, I don't know if he was exclusively on Jackson the whole game, but he was on him a lot. Jackson was a nonfactor, and it was impressive to see Carr run with Jackson down the field. It'll be interesting to see how much the coaches call on him to handle Megatron straight up next week. Romo threw two interceptions today. I thought he made good decisions on both. Sometimes the ball ends up in the other teams hands anyway. I heard Brad Sham say in the postgame that he talked to Tony on the field during warmups, and Tony told him that the wind was really bad. He said something on the order of "when the wind is behind me, it's going to be an adventure". I wonder if the wind partly explains at least some of both Foles and Romo having accuracy problems. I haven't watched the replay yet, but it looked like Philly was blitzing as often as the Redskins have against us the last two times they've faced us. I still don't think the team has quite figured that out yet...until they start burning that blitz, I'd expect to keep seeing it. I don't know if it's Romo, the playcalling, the o-line (this may have been the line's weakest game so far). But that may be the book on how to face the Cowboys offense so far. Playing in Philly is a little like playing in Thunderdome. Randle talked about the gauntlet, having 80 year old grandmothers flip them off on the way in, how chaotic that stadium is. I'll take an ugly two touchdown win in that place every time.
