    he missed chip shot 31 yarder and an xp

    if yout try and count the 60yarder you need punch i the throat..he should have been ran out there for that but worth shot..

    but he made the at the time game winner 48yarder straight down the middle and could have easily went 55 it was perfect so yes bad made amends, blame GZ but dotn forget others

    jeez we blind??

    dak taking two straight sacks to take us out of FG range, Ceedee drops and the one tip into an INT, the OL penalties, DL pressures etc

    was many little cuts that led to the bleedout...it all mattered not just GZ kicks..
    saying all st were bad ANGER boomed punts..greg makes that perfect 48 yarders, etc etc some aspects of all 3 units led to the loss..

    We are going to need at least a top 15 D... to make a serious postseason run.

    Defense is better then last year clearly and will improve with each game as long as injuries dont pile up - However i was surprised how poorly the ST were and i am not even talking about the kicking , they had some good returns against us as well or at least thats how it felt

    I bet we are top 5 in run defense and probably top 3 in TO's. If we remain close to that in both categories we should be killing it.

    People are going to pass a lot on us because we are going to score a lot of points.

    Dak was sacked only once the entire game so how did he take 2 sacks back to back to get out of FG range?

    Top 15 by mid year and improving to make a real push. We are young in spots and they need to start getting it.

    Told my wife on the short kick miss that it would cost us. And the extra point was a killer. The 60 yarder would have pulled his feet out of the fire for a minute.

    Is a team win and loss. The 60 looked long enough. Would have made me feel better but anything over 50 is skill and luck. I remember we had a kicker that I would be on the edge of seat for a extra point but felt pretty good if the kick was 50+.. We need a solid kicker. He had surgery and was his first test. I will give it some more kicks but if he keeps missing 30 yard kicks then he needs the throat punches.

    THIS TEAM IS NOTHING LIKE THE 2020 COWBOYS

    If you type it enough times, it has to be true right? :)

    It's a tough thing to rate. On the one hand it's exactly what you said, but on the other it's one guy missing a block vs. multiple missed kicks, substandard punt returns, multiple penalties, bad kickoff coverage. Not even counting the 60 yarder, the field goal and PAt Greg the leg missed also decided your game. But those were much more than just a single missed block. The change in yardage for starting field position can be massive on the outcome of the game. Dallas's average starting field position was the 27, which the Bucs was the 33. That's a very large difference for a tight game.

    This team so far is exactly like 2020.
    It only took one post to be true.
