    Somebody didn't watch the game very close.

    That play was scary. I really thought Romo was going to be seriously injured, but he popped up and started walking around. He was walking around like an old man, but he was walking around.

    That was actually Livings that missed that block.

    Well it was a 3 man rush (what we always complain about here), and the guy who got to Romo first was Tyron's man. This forced Romo up in the pocket cause Tyron got beat. Now Livings should have helped Tyron from the very beginning, but Tyron caused the domino effect that ended badly for Romo.

    People want to blame everyone but Tyron when it comes to the line, but he is a big part of the problem also if you watch it without making excuses for him.

    Sadly, he is. Our OT play deserves a lot of criticism this season. Though we have been leaving them in a bind a lot the last few weeks.

    No I didn't, I was in a crowded sports bar watching several games. And yes, I totally missed the rotation. I saw Parnell in the game but thought he came in as a extra blocker in the TE spot. So yea, your correct I didn't watch it closely.

    No worries. The announcers missed it after the first rotation, too. Or else I wasn't listening closely enough myself.

    That's probably because the Bengals didn't rush Tony heavily in the 1st half, it was part of their gameplan to keep him in the pocket. When they choose to apply pressure, they got through.

    I remember the Cowboys running a running play and the entire offensive line surged forward......except Free who was thrown back 2 yards. The very next series Parnell was in.

    Doug Free committed the only penalty between the two... I think Parnell will be starting next year at RT.

    Why is everyone wanting to move Smith back to RT. The kid just turned 21 ... this is his first season at left tackle. And he was STILL our best O Lineman. Cut the kid some friggin slack.

    Agreed but I wouldn't mind drafting some insurance incase he doesn't progress.

    We know he can play RT at a high level. With his athleticism I just don't see how he could fail as a LT but we'll see.

    Benched I think. He has been a waste.
