Re: Cowboys Wk 4

Man the key to winning this game is stopping jason witten.. Man he's been killing defenses on 3rd down... and he always starts off blocking then releses into the open with out being covered.. If we stop t.o. with shawn springs and some safetie help.. We got to figure out a way to rattle tony romo... by sending blitzs from different angles.... man I pumped for this game I think we can beat dallas.. There not that good to me.. And when we get pressure on tony romo.. We have to get him down we can be letting him escape then were going to get beat in are man coverage... and we got to get clinton portis going this week even tho he had a decent week last week.. I just wait lol

That could work, but do the math here. You are talking about blitzing, which means sending extra LB's (meaning those LB's are not in coverage), then double-coverage on TO, that means a DB and a safety on one guy, that leaves a CB and safety for the other WR's on the field. And with the LB's blitzing and your DB's and safeties occupied that will leave either Witten or Crayton or Austin in man coverage, which is a match-up QB's look for. I am not even going to mention spreading the defense out by putting Felix Jones in motion and in a pass pattern.

What you are talking about is exactly what the Packers did on defense and they got beat. You send those LB's in on a blitz from different angles, then the middle of the field is open and Witten will have a feast.

And that is the magic of having a WR like Owens, he demands so much attention from the defense it opens up other opportunities for other players on offense by drawing the coverage away from them. This is why I have always said that T.O. does not need 7 catches and 100+ yards to be a factor in the game. Just his presence on the field is enough.

Hopefully the idea of the blitz is to disguise it so you can get to Romo before he gets the ball off. Romo is not that great at reading defenses and can be rattled. The big problem is that Dallas has a great OL who generally pick up the blitz and give Romo time. If you can disguise the blitz and catch the OL offguard, Romo can be rattled.

And as far as Owens, you have to punish him. Whether he makes the catch or not, hit him hard just like Sean Taylor always did. He doesn't like that and it definitely affects his game.

I think Witten is the key. He will be a tough matchup for us. We can stop Barber with LB help, but that lets Witten free up and he will kill us.

If our offense can keep the ball for some long drives and keep the defense fresh we have a shot, but we have to play a perfect game.

That is the key to a Redskins win right there. It will come down to the Time of Possesion battle.

If the Redskins are able to sustain long offensive drives throughout the game, it accomplished two things.

1. Most importantly, it keeps the Dallas offense off the field and limits thier number of possesions.

2. It will keep the Dallas defense on the field and they will get tired around the middle of the 3rd quarter and Portis and Betts can take over.

I'm not sure we need to double cover T.O. I think Springs is up for the challenge.

Didn't Owens get 4 TD's in one game against the Redskins the last time they tried that?

Spring looks better then he has in years. You can talk all you want, but we'll see if T.O. does s&@# against him this year.

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.
For those of you who do not understand "cowboyese", let me interpret. Blah..bblah.. bblah ..blah ..blah.

Yup. I know this might sound crazy, but I chalk up those stats to the absence of one Sean Taylor. Owens was absolutely terrified of Taylor.

Between 2004 and 2006, Owens racked up a mere 18 receptions for 165 yards and 2 TDs. That's an average of 4 receptions for 41 yards (10 yards per catch) and 1/2 a TD per game.

In TO's first game against the Sean Taylor-less Redskins, he racked up 8 receptions for 173 yards and 4 TDs. In other words, in one game, TO managed to rack up more receiving yards and touchdowns against the Redskins than he had in the previous 3 years.

I believe that was Doughty's first start. Could be wrong.
