It's about time my good ledger had more points than my bad and ugly!! The Good: A lot! *Finally, some energy. A steady offensive performance (any 3 and outs?). People playing like they wanted to be there. *Hoyte is a powerful blocker. *TO getting involved on the first play instead of in the 3rd quarter. *RB's ran hard. JJones still gets several carries a game that go for 9+yards. Imagine how good he could be with a complete line. *Speaking of RB's, how'd you like to try and tackle MBIII? 7 yards to a TD dragging 3 Panthers! *Special teams coverage was aggressive. Monster hits, fumbles.... *Steve Smith more or less held in check. Hello, Newman. *25 4th quarter points. New Cowboys record. *Converting big (9+ yards) third downs. *Witten looks like a force to be reckoned with. Where was he the first 6 games? Oh, yeah. He was blocking. *270 yards passing, about 150 yards rushing, and 40 minutes time of possession. This is the Parcells offense we've been told about. *Romo's mobility. Could the two point conversion fake QB draw have worked with Bledsoe? No. *Parcells finally shows some emotion. The Bad: *Romo's interception. It takes him a little time to calm down and get in the flow of the game. *Vanderjagt doinks his first FG. Later this year, I fear his yips will come back to haunt the Cowboys. *Still not much pass rush. Everyone gets there a split second too late. *Correct me if I'm wrong, but I thought I heard Parcells say that Thompson broke his ankle. *Michaels and Madden; Could they be any less entertaining. At least now I know how to cook a juicy porkchop! The Ugly: *Penalties. 9 flags for 89 yards. In Parcell's terms, that's nearly a touchdown for the other team. *Carolinas special teams. Yikes!! The Bottom Line: Still around .500, but the energy and effort from last night suggests there might be something to look forward to now. I hope they don't get too confident after one win and tank against the Redskins.
