    It hurts watching highlights from previous those days. The offensive line was SO much better.

    Probably because he doubled in size.

    Look at how small he is in that footage.

    Didn't we start that year out 4-0? What a depressing season. I thought we looked poised to repeat 2007 regular season success all over again.

    That almost brings a tear to my face seeing how much time Romo had and how great our running game was. Man..........And the sad thing is, our personnel is better now than it was then. Well at the skill positions anyway.

    That was just 2008. Marion Barber, Derek Anderson, Braylon Edwards, Terrell Owens......wow how the mighty have fallen at that time. Browns were looking to be on the UP. Same goes for the Cowboys at that time. Derek Anderson was looking like a legit qb in this league too.

    We started off 3-0 then proceeded to go 2-4 the next 6 games. That was an up and down season that ended on a very sour note in Philly.

    IIRC, Felix scored on his first touch in the NFL in that game also. I could be wrong (wouldn't be the first time).

    Romo actually had a pocket to throw from on some of those. Havent seen that in a long time.

    And probably won't for some time to come unless the FO takes the o-line seriously this coming off season.

    Good point. It's amazing how the O line has deteriorated in just a few years.

    That team had a serious case of entitlement. Like they were so good that they could just show up and win. Then they lost that game to the Redskins at home and then won a lackluster game against Cincy at home. Then lose the game at Arizona and lose Romo to the hand injury, insert Brad Johnson for a few games:)banghead: ) and the season was suddenly lost. We still had a chance but had the embarrassing Texas Stadium finale against Baltimore followed by 44-6. Just a disappointing season that started off so good.

    Wow..


    I certainly miss O-line play like the most out of all of it.

    2 things...

    1.The difference in OL talent compared to what we've seen the last 2-3 years. Look at pocket the interior OL was able to create in those highlights!!

    2.Witten is actually running 12-15 yd patterns and not the 3-7 yd stuff we've been seeing lately.

    I agree that we need to continue to improve the OL, and last week was not a good week for our OTs, in particular, but check out hairic's splits on the passing plays when you get a chance. It's pretty interesting to see all the passing plays cut together in one roll like this.

    hairic does this every week, by the way. It's a ton of work, and it's a really great bonus for CZ that I don't think quite gets enough kudos yet. Really great stuff.

    Man it is STUNNING how much we have shrunk our offense compared to the way we went downfield in that game.
