I'm confused by some (but not all) of the reaction here this week. A few things that shouldn't have been surprising: 1. Drew can't handle inside pressure. 2. Our O-line is not an elite unit. 3. The Eagles are very very good at bringing inside pressure. Were any of these statements in doubt before Sunday? 4. We have a rookie starting at FS. 5. Rookies make mistakes. Remember how nervous Bill was about starting Watkins in the first place? 6. We lost to a good team, a rival in our division, on the road. 7. Good teams exploit weaknesses (like immobile QBs and rookie FS's). Did people really expect to go 6-0 in division? If not, which games did you expect the 'boys to lose? 8. Dallas is not yet a Super Bowl quality team. Maybe this is surprising to some folks, but it shouldn't have been. --- Now, a couple things that did surprise me: 1. TO really isn't that good a receiver. I hope this is a result of rustiness and a new system and not the effects of age, but TO simply wasn't open in this game, even when he was 1-on-1 with an ordinary CB. Drew forced the ball to him a number of times when he was covered. 2. The Dallas front 7 isn't yet an elite unit. I won't debate whether it's personnel or scheme. I hope it's mostly an issue of young players still improving. 3. JJ is the real deal. Ok, it was more of a confirmation this week than a surprise, but he's continuing to run hard and effectively this year.
