Re: Cowboys Wk 4

Watched the recording of the game this morning.

Dallas D is hurting a little in the backfield and could be weak against the WCO quick passing. But we must develop rushing yardage that takes pressure off Campbell. GB abandoned their rushing attack too early and went for too many long pass plays, not to mention bonehead penalties that stifled their own drives. We have to play smart.

Their O has a powerful running game, but Barber relies on bouncing outside the tackles for much of his bigger gains. A lot of their inside stuff gets stuffed (see also the Philly game). We must contain better than GB did to force them to pass, then get pressure on Romo (with containment a priority) to help the DB's. Springs on TO all night with safety cover will help, but we can't forget about Clayton and Austin. The latter may be a one game wonder but you can't count on that.

If we do all of this, and can get the better of the field position, we should come out on top, but this is going to be a close one. If we screw up anywhere, we could be blown out - Dallas are a big play O and 1 or 2 of those could mean game over for us.

Skins DL. Taylor-244 (listed on nfl.com, probably 255), Griffin-303, Gholston-298, Carter-253

Blache is going to need to scheme this game perfectly because we're outmatched on paper. The O must also control the clock in a big way.

We always play them aggressive. Since Gibbs II we always punch em in the mouth. Win Lose or Draw. i am not worried. We are never intimidated by Dallas.

Re: Cowboys Wk 4

I'm not going to say that we CAN'T win, but I wouldn't put money on us. We have struggled big against the run and they are gonna lull whichever SS into the box in order to isolate TO or crayton and go long.

We made the cards run because they wouldn't beat us running and wouldn't stick with it. Dallas can. Felix jones is damn nice and barber is elite. Our offense for some reason seems to hinge on whether the first play is successful. Sont know why that's so importanr but it seems like jim zorn has no 2 and 10 plays. I don't think were ready yet, but I hope I'm wrong.

denver as an elite team? everyone's been laying 30 on them, no way i'd call them elite. i can't imagine they'd be much worse without champ - that pass D is stupid bad, and he's making 9mill a year.
Austin was injured in the preseason and the GB game was the first game he has played in this year.

He used to be the kick returner until Felix Jones came onboard. Now Austin is technically the #4 WR behind Owens, Crayton and Hurd. But Hurd is nursing an injury as well, so that bumped Austin to #3 his first game back.

I have read this entire thread thus far, and I keep reading about "shut TO down like Green Bay". Well Owens does not have to have 7 catches, 100 yards and a TD for the team to win. As was evidenced last night. Owens draws double and triple teams, and that leaves man coverage on someone else, Like Crayton, Witten or even Miles Austin who had over 100 yards and a TD last night. Next to Felix Jones, Austin is the fastest guy on the Cowboys roster by the way.

Romo does not need a triple digit QB rating and 300 yards passing for this team to win, as was evidenced last night. That is why the Cowboys are tough to beat, you take away thier primary weapon (Owens) and/or thier QB can have a sub-par performance, like last night, and the other guys can still beat you. Barber had a MONSTER game last night, that more than made up for Romo's inconsistencies.

Felix Jones has proven that it WAS the right choice to pick him OVER Reshard Mendenhall in the draft. Felix (The Cat) Jones is the first rookie in Cowoys history to have a TD in each of his first 3 games.

And I read "Shut down TO". "Shut down Barber", "Pressure Romo", but no one has mentioned shutting down Witten too.

Just too many weapons, IMO

And let me also point out that the Dallas Defense has allowed only 2 TD's in thier last 6 quarters of play. And that defense has racked up 9 sacks in the last 6 quarters of play. And I lost count of the number of QB pressures that have initiated.

Well...your right. Dal has a # of different playmakers that have to be addressed. The big ones in no particular order TO, Barber/Jones, Witten, and yes maybe throw Crayton in there.

So, Was has it's work cut out for them. However, it is Was/Dal and in the last few years it been a good fight no matter who the Boyz have. It'll take a heck of a game by JC and the defense to get this one but I'm not writing this one off. Washington's got some talent too.

Re: Cowboys Wk 4

I'm getting sick of all the sport writers and commentators, claiming the Cowboys are the best in NFL...now that Pats are looking beatable. The Cowboys tend to make too many mistakes that will cause them to lose to certain teams. Don't believe all the hype ...
Dallas is a big balloon that will likely pop post-playoffs IMO.

Re: Cowboys Wk 4

1. We need to script the first 15 plays of each half.
2. We need to stop TO by doing something similar to what the the Packers did to him.
3. Put constant pressure on Romo. If he has enough time he'll pick us apart, if he doesn't it's "hello turnovers!"
4. Watch out for Witten, he's a sneaky bastard!

Right. It's strikingly similar to Skins. Stop Moss or stop Cooley? Stop Portis? Or maybe throw Randle El in there?

Re: Cowboys Wk 4

Romo is a turnover machine!

4 in 3 games, plus one more fumble that Dallas recovered.

Even though it shows as 1 fumble on the stat sheet, he actually fumbled TWICE in the end zone last week when it was recovered for a defensive TD. So he actually has fumbled 3 times with 3 interceptions so far.

21 fumbles with 35 interceptions in 2 full seasons + 3 games. That's just regular season, he becomes even more clumsy in the playoffs.


Because someone will bring it up, Campbell only has 17 picks and 14 fumbles in 30 games. Romo has played only a few more games with 35. Nearly twice as many INTs and plenty more fumbles.


Romo is averaging 1.33 turnovers per game this season by himself. The Redskins have ZERO turnovers as a TEAM.

Re: Cowboys Wk 4

The Redskins will beat Dallas because of three main reasons.

Turnovers that result in points.

Secondary is the worst in the NFC East.

Jason Campbell's revenge from last year in a game he should have won.

The die cast has been set. No one should give us a chance and it will make for a embarrassing exposure of an overated team with a decent offense and a horrid defense. Redskins 34, Cowbitches 20

A little like the pot calling the kettle black. Dallas secondary had one HALF of a bad game against the Eagles. The second half of that game the Eagles only managed 7 points and McNabb was sacked 4 times due to coverage.

Rodgers was sacked 5 times last night due to coverage sacks.

And the Redskins secondary is ONLY allowing 10 yards less per game in the air than the Dallas secondary. Not to mention that you are facing the #1 offense in the league next Sunday.

Washington will not win on Sunday.
