I was confused by the lack of passes to Zeke out of the backfield.  He had 3 catches for 17 yards in a game where the run was mostly getting stuffed.  He ran a dozen or more routes from his position but almost all of them were short outs away from the side Dak was rolling to - basically taking Zeke out of the play.  I was hoping to see more screens with blockers, swing passes or middle stabs.  They need to be more creative.


Once in a while you get shown the light, in the strangest of places if you look at it right.

I dunno man - Dez was abeast and accounted for a lot of defensive attention. Just like any great WR: The defense has to plan for him and take him into account every play.  He makes the rest of the players around him better since they can get open easier and he often pulls a safety with him each play.  Randy Moss was the king of absorbing 2 defenders like every play.  That means you can run the ball against 9 guys instead of 10 or 11.  Huge difference.
 
I still dont get why they didnt sign Dez.  I understand there might have ben some financial issues but geez.....???  Cole beasley is a cool dude and all but he is NOT going to scare anyone.  Zeke and Dak need Dez or someone like him out there to be effective, IMO.  The defense is going to have to play lights out every single game or its going to be a long season for the 'Boys.  If they get down a score or two its game over.  Hell, they might be in trouble just down by one score after what I saw this weekend. 

do you know which wr was game planned against and taken out of games last yr?
I'll give you a hint, it wasn't Dez

Seafool hates the Giants and the Cowboys. Shouldn't he hate the Vikings and the Packers?

Why comment on a topic that you are uninterested in? That's not only lame, but retarded.

I do... and it worked - he disappeared.. Of course NE finds ways to get their 5'9" wrs open all day long - but the headset clowns are incapable of figuring it out.

Such a stupid, misleading stat. Cowboys have opened up on Sunday Night Football since 2010 and oh wait...this week was it's lowest since 2009. Ratings will always be higher on SNF than a 4:25PM start time. It'll go back up this week. 

 

I hope they suffer though and do really drop, so there can be some changes, but this article is complete crap, lol.

Well crap... and yes I said crap - all this win did was prolong JG's tenure here.

 

I will give credit where credit is due - for parts of this game Abbott & Costello looked like they knew what they were doing. Finally we got to see a ball downfield and finally we got to see things open up a bit... But outside of one big hit, this offense didn't shine too particularly bright.... One thing is for sure, we desperately need to find a replacement for Witten - bad.

 

And the defense? Wow - they were spectacular last night. Granted part of that was just how crap ass shiity NY's line is, but still...... Anyone else with concerns about S. Lee? Back to back weeks he's looked rather bad and old.

this.  CWill stepped up his game, but the zone read isn't going to get us to february, and even the big TD was a mediocre throw.  

 

so we're down to cheering or LB duo of taylor smith and leighton meester.

I'm convinced we could have 25 year olds Jerry Rice and Randy Moss - wouldn't make a bit difference.

 

Gawd Bless him, Dak is simply not cut out for the modern game. He lacks full field vision, he doesn't progress thru his reads well - and of course, he (more often than not) can not hit the broadside of a barn.... Is there anyone in this town who feels good over 3rd and 8? Not me.. With Romo, I felt 70% good even at 3rd and 10.

I agree.......I really miss Tony, I want him as our HC

Chiming in...not sure how well anybody can judge the Cowboys after that game.  They looked good, but it really does appear that the Giants may just be that bad.  Odell doesn't look healthy IMO, and i'm not sure that offensive line could block me coming off the edge.  Just a team in shambles.  Slightly tougher test with Seattle up.  We'll see...

Could Odell be someone who fooled us into thinking he's better than he is? Just throwing that out there, but I mentally shuffle him into the Julio pile when I think about receivers. There are guys like Megatron and Hopkins who can do great stuff with garbage at QB. And there are guys who we say "Man, he's one of the best ever!" who underachieve when things aren't perfect for them. Is OBJ one of them? Or is it bad luck, injuries, etc?

OBJ is on pace for 120 Rec and almost 1300 yards. Not sure what this is all about. Buy low if you even could.

I just looked back, I guess his yardage two years ago was higher than I thought. I just used to hear from his owner all the time that year about how it was a pain to own him--he had 4 huge games, and then was not much of anything super special the rest of the time. He was still 'good', but not '1st round' good for most of the season, that was my buddy's complaint. Maybe that combined with last year painted a biased picture in my head.
