Spread the ball around...get it to Cooley at least a few times.

Get Sean Taylor more involved in the D.

Blitz the hell out of Testesverde. Have Lavar pull "an Aikman" on him to let him know what it means to be a Dallas QB playing the Redskins.

Opening play prediction: Flea-flicker to Coles for a TD.

Wow - I LOVE the way you think. Couldn't have said any of it better!

Some of my keys/ideas for Monday

-Come out throwing. The first offensive play I would try to hit Coles or Gardner on something deep. Perhaps off a playaction or a flea flicker like SkinsRock suggested. Show the Cowboys right off the bat that they can't crowd the line to key on Portis. The passing game was much more vertical once Ramsey came in against the Giants, I would definitely carry that over.

-We've gotta keep Ramsey out of bad situations. 3rd and longs are just asking for trouble. Ramsey himself has to step up and play SMART. If a play isn't there throw it away or take the sack, DO NOT FORCE ANYTHING. I don't care if he has to dump the ball off to the backs or TE's all night long to keep the ball moving, I just don't want to see him heave one up for grabs.

-Coles and Gardner both need to step up and have solid games. Gardner especially needs to show more consistency. Enough with the silly drops already, get your head in the game RG!

-Portis obviously needs to have a good game, and it all starts up front. The OL needs to get nasty in this game and not only open holes but keep them open. I'd also like to see a bit more of Betts in this one especially between the tackles. The entire offense needs to come out with a chip on their collective shoulders after last week's pathetic display.

-Defensively I'm sure Williams will be bringing the heat, but he may need to pick his spots. I wonder who the flavor of the week blitzer will be, Springs just wasn't very effective in that role last week. The Cowboys have a solid WR group so the secondary could have their hands full.

-It goes without saying we need to play smarter across the board. 7 turnovers is ridiculous. We need to win the turnover battle, control the clock and keep the crowd in it all game long.

How about Taylor being the flavor of the week? The one time I saw him blitz last week, he almost got to Warner and he got there pretty quick. And we all know that Vinny has no legs, so we need to take advantage of that.

our offense needs to improve in every single aspect. from snap to catch downfield. its really that deep unfortunately.

quick fix if we're still facing impenetrable 8man fronts and our QBs still can't throw or our WRs still can't catch is Cooley. he's got amazing hands apparently, and no defense has gameplanned. him exactly. even if they are those ultra annoying 6yd passes, we need to move the chains not give more futile reps to demoralize the team further.

once there is forward moving momentum everything will snowball, just need that spark. the reason initial scoring drives aren't enough spark is cuz our QBs still aren't comfortable. let em start slow but sure instead of having em swing and miss for homeruns. they gotta work up to that right now.

with LaVar out, i'd play a nickel most of the game and add Harris or Lott to cover Bryant. then have Bowen or Taylor move up for run support or to blitz.

Williams is so exotic tho, who knows. i already seen Sean Springs lined up at the Dline this year...

This isn't part of the gameplan but it's funny nonetheless:

Cornerback Fred Smoot, upon learning that teammate Shawn Springs grew up a Cowboys fan and once owned a pair of team-inspired underwear: "He's got Cowboys underwear? I should have slipped him some Ex-Lax."
(from the washington times)

My game plan on offense would be setting up the run by coming out passing. They're going to be keying on stopping Portis, and if we can stretch the field for him, it could be a long day for the girls. Whatever we do, the Oline MUST control the line of scrimmage to give the QB and RB time and space in which to operate. We cannot expect Ramsey or Brunnell to do what they need to if they don't have adequate time. A real break out game from Portis would be nice, and may not be as difficult as we'd tend to think -- Dallas is currently 26th against the run.

On defense, we need to mix it up and do what it takes to pressure Teste. We also cannot allow Eddie to move the chains for them. Make them beat us throwing the ball, and Teste will make enough mistakes, and our secondary will make enough plays to kill potential scoring drives. Taylor will get his first pick as a 'Skin tommorrow if we can enable him react to a flustered and hurried QB.

Regardless of gameplanning -- I like our odds if we can avoid the penalties and turnovers that absolutey killed us last week. If we take back even two of those turnovers against the Giants, we're 2-0 instead of 1-1.

probably only need to take back one... doesn't matter though, we really got what we deserved i'm really hoping ramsey nails a deep one early and portis takes the reins...

No turnovers and please don't revive Eddie George's career as we tended to do do with the "old E Smith"!

lemar was the #1 reserve at the start of camp i think... he's not LA, but hopefully williams knows that and can tweak the gameplan accordingly
