    Also, teams like the Bills apparently didn’t have a game where you could say they got beat in every phase of the game. They got penalized 12 times for 118 yards, fumbled twice, lost 1 and Allen got picked 2 times, while still controlling the TOP at over 30 minutes.

    On the other hand, we simply got blown out. We were penalized 5 times for 38 yards, while Denver was 5 times for 37. The TOP was Denver, 41 minutes to 18 for the Cowboys.

    Teams were loading the box the whole game with Rush, even more so in the second half….

    So what was the excuse than?

    And if teams are loading the box with Dak in, which in reality they have been his whole career here, which is why this offense sees so much man coverage, what does that say about the ‘fear’ defenses have for this QB?

    Even Romo was saying it in the Patriots game, defenses are basically forced to play man and with the weapons the Cowboys have at receiver, where they win their match-ups regularly , it’s that hard to defend. Even Chris Collinsworth points if out all the time.

    Hopefully the players stop reading they are going to the Super Bowl stories.
    Get back to work and playing well.

    Other teams will run the ball on us now.

    The Cowboys got ahead in the other games and teams had to abandon the run to try to catch up.
    Limit the Cowboy chances early and other teams should have a chance late.

    When it's La La La land here and folks are posting were SB bound and Dak is going to be the league MVP how can a logical non-Kool-Aid drinking Cowboy fan join this madness?
    So I let you Dak zombies and kool-aid drinking folks do your thing.
    Why be a party pooper?
    Now back to reality.
    Dak has had many games like yesterday and he goes as this team can carry him.
    He is not an Elite QB and will never develop into one so the sooner you come down with your buds to reality the lesser amount of pain you will endure.
    The dude has the best offensive pieces in the league around him and can only perform when we're playing dog teams and everything around him is perfect.
    NO pass rush, Zeke over 100 yards, perfect coaching, and the defense is holding their own.
    THIS IS NOT AN ELITE QB!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Titans are 7-2.

    And yeah, it’s called physical defense making the game sloppy and ugly. That’s always been the blueprint against high-flying offenses.

    It demonstrates how much physicality has been taken away from defenses by the league that all these offenses and especially mediocre QBs, of which Stafford isn’t as far as today’s generation of QBs is, can get away with a bunch of mis-direction and gimmicky plays, which they couldn’t back in the old days.

    This perfectly executed blueprint would beat most teams, not just the Cowboys.

    Fact is, We convert those 4th down plays, Dak hits the open receivers on those long passes and the defense shows up against the run like they have been doing all year and this is an entirely different ball game.

    Yesterday was just piss poor effort. Plus Gallup should be back next week and hopefully they tweak the line . Put Collins on the left side

    You waste so much energy tearing Dak down…. Debating whether he is “elite” or “not elite”. Doesn’t matter. He is your QB. And the team is winning games with him at QB.

    I never claimed he was perfect or doesn’t have flaws. But they are 6-2. Lots of football left to play. So back to my question: In your opinion— what record does this “non elite” QB lead us to this year?

    Don’t forget we also played teams that had young QBs and their coaches refused to run the ball, and that allowed Quinn to play aggressive and get a bunch of TOs in scoring position. We also saw an experienced QB last night, given an offense that was actually dedicated to running the ball, able to take advantage of this aggressive defense, exposing it.

    The last two games, we’ve been short on TOs. Rush didn’t have a single TO provided for him by the defense, at least not in scoring position.

    Rush is more intelligent and hands down more accurate than Panic Prescott......

    I think most have tried that blueprint every week this season. Some teams have slowed up the running attack, but haven't been able to slow both. Perhaps a banged up Lamb and Cooper slowed their separation, while Dak having to speed up progressions with pressure from the blind side led to some less accurate throws. There were plays there down the field and that's where Cowboys have made teams pay stacking too close.

    If Dak gets a split second more this offense should get back on track against that blueprint.

    The funny thing, these Dak-stans act like this RG has no impact on why this offense is good. Look at the Eagles the last few games, where their young coach has finally decided to run the ball. Even a mediocre QB like Hurts was able to move the ball against the Chargers last night and they put up 24 points and they converted 8 of 12 third downs, despite losing to the great elite Herbert, who was 32 for 38 fir 356 yards and 2 TDs.

    This isn’t a new blueprint. Most teams just aren’t able to execute.

    And stopping or slowing our running game doesn’t always work either. Sometimes our passing game can carry us.

    I think the key is stuffing our running game and pressuring our QB. Not all teams have the ability or talent to do so.

    Does it matter?
    We play in the worst division in the NFL and it will be a miracle if we can win 1 playoff game even at home.
    Prescott as shown yesterday is at his finest when the defense is giving him "Pity" points in the 4th Q.
    The Cowboys 666 is his name and Cowboy mediocrity and filling his coffers( 73 million this year) is his game!!

    Yeah, the Patriots tried this and gave us the most passing yards the whole season and most under Bellicheck. If Dak is right and gets the protection, he and the receivers will have a field day against man coverage.

    I don't know about a blueprint, and not every team is built to do what another team (broncos) can do. However, we've been waiting for a team to run the ball at will, and it finally happened. Offense didn't put points to protect the defense from that as before.
