    Hate to say because I never wanted to agree with it.. But RGIII

    Perfect storm

    Zeke was shut down by a top run defense.

    We got lucky. Teams got tape on Dak and Zeke. Offensive line regressed. No one is afraid of our offense anymore.

    I was a member of the 3rd ACR, and their moto was: forged in fire, came out steel. So will the Cowboys progress from this first game. Hey, in boxing, if knocked on one's but...get up and mix it back up.

    But there are 31 other teams who are seen on tape also. What makes us so different from them?

    Not to mention a lot of those teams still succeed regardless of tape. The tape excuse has to stop.

    Our coaches are our coaches. Romo was just a guy that didn't have it all.

    See above, Romo coached/mentored DAK. There is so much a QB has to know, read defense, protections, plays etc. DAK had the best coach on the Cowboys team helping him. After Romo's departure....DAK was left to figure it out on his own = drop in performance

    Romo on the Team = DAK Shined
    Romo gone = DAK disappoints

    They found out he didn't want to throw past 8 yards.

    Its a little bit of everything but mostly the O line. Romo was magical at extending plays, Dak doesn't "feel" a defender coming like Romo did.........

    One or two games of film is All that's needed. I think it was more the beatdown he took against Atlanta.

    Here's some free All 22.

    Watch for yourselves. Guys were open all day in the intermediate range. Mute Akoye if you don't like him, but the video evidence is there.

    Easy. No confidence.

    He needs to literally see the WR open before making the throw. He’s not anticipating which is why he’s holding onto the ball too long.

    Not blaming it all on him but it makes it all the more critical our receivers can run good routes and get separation. If they can’t, and Dak continues being the way he is, it’s going to be a long season.

    Fooled by randomness.

    Also fun fact....Dak had exactly three 300 yard passing games in 2016. One of which was aided by an 80 yard screen pass to Zeke.

    He wasn't asked to do much. And he did that well. The moment we've learned on him he's folded like a lawn chair.
