    The horrible play calling through out the game which almost led to a loss. I just can;'t understand why if we get a nice 15-20 gain on 2nd down, why do we pass on the next play? I was so irritated with the call to pass on 2nd and 2 at midfield because we probably could have scored on that drive. The defense was very strong and impressive today but the only thing i hate seeing is Romo with those step back throws that can get picked off along with the dumb play calling. And why does Romo have to be in shotgun formation on 1st down?

    Just seems like we were doing everything we could not to run the ball and drain the clock. But like I said It's a win and I will take it and the 1st place lead in the division

    I would like to have seen more running plays. Especially when he got in FG range. This is the type of game where any kind of points are a premium and on that Romo INT I felt like we could have ran a couple of times on 3rd down. I think it was 3rd and 3 once or twice on that drive and we threw the ball.

    It's hilarious how fans first accuse JG of being "predictable," but then demand that BC run on every first down.

    Yeah, the play calling the past couple of weeks has been suspect.

    maybe just give the Eagles D a little credit

    Division games are always difficult. Next week is in a dome, I expect us to look smoother on offense

    I dont see where we almost lost. Obviously we can all watch and say how we would have done things differently, but all I see is a big fat W.

    Nobody wants anybody to run it on every first down. Nobody is saying that. Just pure hyperbole.

    You are upset with passing on 2nd and 2? I find that funny because if I coached football, I'd take a shot deep every single time I got 2nd and short. I'd have the confidence that we could get the 3 yards on 3rd down.

    I'm sorry but I don't care much to run the ball for 2 yards when we could just throw it for 15.

    Well you know how fans are. They want a 30 point ESPN highlight W. A W is a W and Cowboy fans have no RIGHT to be picky if you've watched this team the past few years. A very solid win.

    Absolutely, I'll take a win (especially a division win) any day.

    Um you don;t take deep shots on 2nd down. You do that on 1st down because you have 2 downs left so you can afford to take a shot down field

    Yea we hate to do it but just like we want to PRAISE Kiffin for this defense today you have to feel the same way for Philly. They played Dez PHYSICAL(got away with some things but whatever) and played a very solid game. They deserve praise for their defense.

    That's silly logic. You catch the defense off guard on 2nd and 2 with a deep pass. Then if you miss it you run it on 3rd down and get the 2 yards. That simple.

    we were up 10-0 when romo threw that INT and could have only been up 10-7 but the defense held.

    I don't think anyone said run every first down, but I hate to see it 3rd and ten because we passed the first two downs to no avail. I think we can all agree 47 passes to 19 runs (by Randle) is not exactly a balanced attack.

    Cowboys had 22 rushing plays and Romo ran 4 more times. It's not like they didn't try to run, but when run game isn't effective, it's no use running just to run.

    We won by 14. On the road. In the division. But our play-calling "almost led to a loss"??

    Ummm. Ok.
