This, we can't change what the offense is now. You get up through the air to setup the run.
The key to winning the game is holding them to 25 or so.
I have no idea who's playing so I have no idea what our chances are.
I've been in and out all day so I don't know the status of Jenkins, Sims and Albright or Ware either.
If our defense could stop the Saints, we would have won even with his fumble.
Man, i never saw fans turn against players as quickly as Cowboys fans.
Im sorry he cant fumble 2 weeks in a row, and not get some. Plus all he has done really in 2 years is be an average injured back. He is nothing special at all. This year he has never taken over a game. At this point I say draft someone else
The key is to not bite on the play action fakes. I know it's easier said than done, but it's the truth. I don't buy the hype when it comes to RG3. He's yet to show me that he can be a pure pocket passer and beat teams consistently when he doesn't have the threat of the play action.
Of course to be fair, this is his first year, and he can very well show that later in his career.
Yeah, I have to agree with this. What bad timing to have a fumble that close to the goal line!
Murray may be key to winning Sunday night...
Yes he is.
He could be the difference maker. Need a strong game from him.
Only if the KEY is to not FUMBLE again this week. Gotta do a better job securing that ball.
Key to them winning if he gives them the ball on our 5 yard line again. They will now try even harder to strip the ball thinking he is a fumbler.
The key to winning will be the defense stepping up and playing a hell of a lot better than it did yesterday and a few weeks ago vs Washington plus Romo having a big, productive mistake free game. If that happens the Cowboys will win but I have little confidence in the defense containing RG3 and Morris.
Nothing has hurt the Cowboys more in these do or die games than the play of the defense. Eli shredded the D in the season finale last year with 346 yards and 3 TD's. With all the injuries on the defense and Ware being rendered ineffective due to his health things aren't looking very promising.
The players on defense are off the streets. They make mistakes, but they are learning the system still, and doing the best they can. Plus, they play hard physical football. No quit that I see.
You are right quarterback play matters the most, we just need him too run the no huddle offense and we will see offense that will be scoring and so many yards he just takes over the huddle so well and better than most qbs out there he is one of the best in a no huddle offense no doubt
There's no quit but this is an average defense that's been riddled with injuries and it's caught up with the team. If the offense didn't make some big plays yesterday the Saints would have blown the Cowboys out.
I think the defence lost this game....no pass rush poor tackling etc....
this. Defense made no plays. Didn't the saints convert like 11 of 19 3rd downs, including alot of 3rd and longs. SMH. Running backs out the backfield killed us.
As long as he can hold onto the football... TWO straight games with a critical fumble.
They just need to make sure they keep the "play" in playaction. When they hard sell it, we are unstoppable. When they do it from the shotgun, not so much.
Romo is playing great ball and I understand putting him at the center of the game plan passing it the way he has. But we need to be more of a team about time of possession. A big reason the Saints won in the end is that they had the ball all game long. We need to eventually run the ball and start winning the TOP war.
Here is the biggest problem with that. You are all the sudden asking your offense to do.something it has not been able to do all year. I'm sorry but thats not smart. As much as I would like to just cram the the run game down washingtons throat its not remotely realistic with this group.
