This reminds me of the 'old defense' Back in 2007 and 2008 the Cowboys had a pretty good defense who could get after teams. They had one big flaw though that used to drive me crazy. At the most inopportune times they would wilt and come up small. So far this season I have seen signs of exactly that happening again. Against the Skins we saw them allow a long drive where the Skins put up an extra 3 points right at the end of the game. That made the score 13-7 and forced the Cowboys to have to put up a TD on their final possession in order to not lose the game. Yesterday the score was 20-17 and David Buehler comes out to kick the game tying FG. He shanks the kick and it's now still a 3 point game. Now is the time for the Cowboys D to come out on the field and stand their ground. Instead of them coming up big in that moment we get this... [youtube]JoetmpC95Xk[/youtube] And no. They are not getting all the blame for the loss. Tony Romo stunk yesterday. The running game was useless. And Buehler should be removed from being the FG kicker. All I am saying is that in 2009 I saw a different defense. One that was becoming elite and had found a way to come up huge in those tough times. And now I am not seeing this in the two losses.
