Football is won/lost in the trenches
We definitely lost the dance of the elephants last night
The O-line could not run block, and the D-line could not get to Romo, or stop the run....Romo was not contained- by bringing pressure fromt he middle rather than the ends he was able to side step our D line all night
Where was Osi, Tuck, JPP.........did Ojomo even get a snap?
We slept through the 1st game last year in DC and then won the SB so I'm not panicking but that was ugly.
The CB problem is bad too.........I'm concerned....somehow today seems like a monday
Sounds exactly like last year to me. We look like a .500 team again, but who knows, if we get hot at the right time again, watch out.
Osi and Tuck were absent, but JPP was all over the place making great plays. Romo's INT was due to his pressure up the middle. Ojomo wasnt active.
Last year we lost T2, Witherspoon, Coe, Tryon, Prince, Johnson at CB. This year we lost T2, Witherspoon, Ross, Prince so we are ahead of the game.
Offensive on offense
Defensive on defense
I am normally mad on Monday after a loss but not so much today for me. It sucked dropping one to that team in Texas I hate, but I think it will slap players back into reality that last year is dead and gone. Nicks should be full strength next week and Cruz will be a little more focused. Prince & Hosely should be healthy and ready. Osi & Tuck will be pissed for not making an impact and may play with a chip on their shoulders.

I realize that......what I'm saying is we needed him last night and he was in street clothes.....Osi and Tuck were invisible

The refs were scared to make any big calls.
The O-line was horrible.
Osi and Tuck were MIA. JPP was a disruptive force, he just did not get the sack, Romo is good at evading the rush. Other than the big run I thought the D contained the run pretty well until late whne they were run down.
Hopefully Prince will come back and be a player.
