    IRVING, Texas – By most accounts, the Cowboys were dominated physically in Seattle on Sunday, and it certainly looked like they got the worse end of a fight the next day.

    Valley Ranch looked like a MASH unit on Monday, as the Cowboys regrouped to study game tape and lick their wounds. The defense, in particular, was ailing a day after they were dominated in the second half, allowing 149 rushing yards.

    Nursing injuries were both starting safeties, Gerald Sensabaugh[​IMG] and Barry Church[​IMG], each of whom had left the game by the end. Church suffered a bruised quad that he said swelled up overnight, while Sensabaugh was in a walking boot after straining his calf. Head coach Jason Garrett called both injuries day-to-day. Danny McCray[​IMG] and Mana Silva[​IMG] ran with the first-team at the end of Sunday’s contest. Fourth-round pick Matt Johnson[​IMG] has been injured most of the time since he was drafted, and the Cowboys may need to make a roster move to avoid being very shorthanded at safety.

    Embarrassing. You cannot say anything else about Sundays play last week in Seattle.

    This team just seems like they are standing around waiting on SOMEONE ELSE to make plays.

    They are not a physical dominating team. They are finesse on ice falling all over the place.

    When your the nail instead of the hammer, your going to get hurt. That's what happened in Seattle. That's why the team has so many injured.

    If this team ever figures how that hitting opponents is easier than getting hit, games like Sunday wouldn't happen.

    Until they learn how to properly deal with success, 8-8 is all we can hope for.
