where team ranks in scoring
Yeah but for what purpose?
Dallas isn't on the same level as those teams.
Yards without points. Defense without turnovers.
Different year, same story.
Let's not forgot bad game management, playcalling and redzone efficiency.
How are the Cowboys 6th in offense? They were last in the league in scoring a few weeks ago..
The rankings are by yards gained or given up per game.
Agree with what Hoof said you can get alot of yards which has obviously been the case with Dallas, but they don't mean a thing if you can't get it in the end zone. That's been a problem for the last several seasons. Settling for too many field goals. Not being able to run it is also a reason why we've had red zone problems. It's hard to score touchdowns consistently if you are one dimensional and aren't able to run it down there on the goal line. Turnovers are another problem. Romo has 15 and the Cowboys as a whole have over 20.
Defensively we've been very solid. In the last two weeks we faced arguably the two most explosive offenses in football in the Giants and Falcons and gave up two touchdowns. I know forcing turnovers has been an issue, but overall you have to say this defense is playing as well as any defense outside of Chicago. What makes it even more impressive is Sean Lee went down with a season ending injury and yet this defense is still getting it done. I know they collapsed a little bit in the fourth quarter of the last game, but again the offense's inability to score points is just too much to overcome right now. They gotta get it going.
and seeing as how we have had no running game at all outside the ravens game and opening night against the GMen we have managed the 6th ranked offense (yards) virtually on the arm of Romo.
Im sure Romo is buckling under the weight of this team as it gets heavier every year.
Terrible coach, horrible owner; worst GM ever.
really? didnt the cowboys start off the game by giving seattle 10 points? in the seattle game
The bears game was destruction brah.
Who cares about how much yards we get in offense and give up in defense. What counts is scoring. How much point we score and how much points we give up.
How many yards did we have and how many yards did Baltimore have? What was the score in the end?
Well obviously they they haven't scored enough and have given up too many hence a 3-5 record.
I think that's obvious.
The yardage figures give us something different to talk about and analyze.
26th in red zone scoring percentage (TDs only).
This has been a staple of the Garrett regime. Tons of yards, very little scoring.
The "process" seems to involve the offense getting progressively worse.
Too bad being the dumbest team in he NFL cancels all that out. Plus we are awful in the red zone because of those mistakes.
What? The defense has been great all season long. They have only allowed more than two touchdowns once. That was against Baltimore. In the last two weeks they've only given up two total touchdowns combined. That's very impressive considering the fact that Sean Lee obviously has been out and the fact that they went up against two of the most explosive offenses in all of football in the Giants and Falcons. The Cowboys defense is actually only allowing 18 points per game. That right there is a championship caliber defense.
Inaccurate qb, 2 of ur 3 wrs blowing 3+ routes a game, bad clock management, questionable gameplanning, massive penalties, and a bargin basement oline that has 1 future probowler and is really average everywhere else.We can not dictate on the line of scrimmage on a consistant basis. Our defense has saved this team week in and week out. allowing 19 pts off of 71 turnovers at one point. had we won the raven and the second giant game like we should have we would be 5-3 and the stats would look more normal. The offense is typical Garrett , it racks up numbers even when they play poorly. That has always amazed me/
