Re: The Dallas Cowboys are Awful

On a side note, speaking of those party passes... I would be ALL over those if Fedex had those. I'm typically standing the entire game anyway and it would bring a GREAT sense of camaraderie with other fans AND allow fans to make it to the games much cheaper.

Now let me back on the subject...

Yes, it's preseason, and you have to take everything with a grain of salt. That being said, while there might be vanilla offenses and vanilla defenses, if you look bad executing that's something that is extremely problematic whether it's preseason or not and is going to carry over to the season.

Re: The Dallas Cowboys are Awful

Its preaseason, so I didn't expect Dallas to take this game seriously. They wanted to get out healthy and score w/ their 1st team. They accomplished both (something we didn't do). On paper they're the least talented team in our Division, they're suspect in coverage and can't stop the run, but saying they're awful is a bit much considering we put up 0 against B-more.

I hate the cowgirls, but it's pre-season they are going to show you vanilla.

:confused:

And... eh?

Anyway, I'm not super upset about our backups getting beat by their backups. Our depth apparently isn't as good. Nothing ever tells the real story of preseason. Who knows what plays were trying to be run or what player was specifically being looked at?

DUDE........they played Oakland, which is about 3 guys away from being a college team. Baltimore is gonna be a great team this year, and they looked like it Thursday night. It is the preseason, so all the speculation is in fun at this point. I cant wait for the real games to start.

Ps. Somehow being reminded that Detroit was 4-0 last preseason made me feel alot better about our game.

Wade Phillips blew a gasket a least three different times.

On the other hand, the Raiders are young and talented. If they had a quarterback somewhere on their roster, they could be a playoff contender...
I guess I watched a different game then.....the Dallas starting offense was not bad at all actually.

They only played the 1st quarter and the starting offense only played for two possessions in that first quarter. The first possesion resulted in a punt.

The second possesion resutled in a 72 yard TD drive by the Dallas starting unit. The Cowboys moved the ball at will on that drive. They did not even have a single third down to convert, moving the chains on first and second down for the entire drive. Barber, Jones and Choice all had double digit runs on that drive. Romo was 6 for 7 with a TD.

After that TD drive, the starters were done for the evening.

However, the RAIDERS starting offensive and defensive lines played into the 3rd quarter against the Dallas second and third units.

Admittedly, depth is a serious concern on the Dallas O-line and defensive secondary. Because the starting CB's for Dallas did not even suit up for the game.

But as I reviewed the team stats at the end of week 1 of the pre season I notice that the Baltimore Ravens lead the NFL in Passing Offense and total offense.

I also noticed that 2 of 3 Dallas QB's had a higher completion percentage then JC.

But it is just preseason, a time for trying out the bottom of an 80 man roster. Most teams that end up in the Super Bowl at the end of the year have had horrible pre-season records and stats.

So for Dallas and Washington, this means nothing.

I agree overall, but one thing I would say, is that Oakland took their top CB( their shutdown corner) out after the 1st Dallas drive where Dallas went 3 and out. On the second drive, that scored, every meaningful reception was against his backup. Also, Dallas had been "scolded" by their coach WP ahead of the game, and they still came out and just looked overwhelmed on the first series. I was not very impressed, but it's only preseason.

Re: The Dallas Cowboys are Awful

i don't understand why Dallas got rid of their d-line depth. Were they too expensive?

Re: The Dallas Cowboys are Awful

After our performance I have a hard time calling any team Awful then to start talking down their D after ours gave up over 500 yards is even harder.

I would say the biggest loss was Chris Canty who went on to get a 50m contract from the G-men.

Dallas could not afford to keep Canty while they are trying to negotiate the contract extension for DeMarcus Ware.

They signed Igor Olashansky in the off-season. They see him as a "cheaper" version of Canty, and they signed him for much less than Canty was looking for.

Re: The Dallas Cowboys are Awful

This has nothing to do with this thread but...did you know Michael Irvin is going to be on Dancing with the Stars? (no, I don't really care either)...so is Joanna Krupa so that could be interesting.

Cheaper version I guess. You get what you pay for. Olshansky is no Canty.

Complete hijack warning: I think Krupa will take it, she has past dancing experience as a Juggie Dancer for two years on the Man Show.

Now back to our regularly scheduled thread.

Re: The Dallas Cowboys are Awful

Olshansky is a tough 3-4 end. Their D is underachieving at times, but Brooking at ILB should help. They have a talented team w/holes on both sides of the ball, just like us & many teams.

Our problem w/them in the 2nd game in 08 was getting enough time for JC. If we can't block Ware, Spencer & Ratliff, our only hope of beating them is on spec. teams & D scores.

I don't take too much from either team's 1st preseason game. Both teams have unproven players (Wash- thomas, kelly, heyer, rinehart, orakpo, Dall - austin, jenkins, scandrick) that need to step up for their teams to be successful. Both teams also have proven vets that will be solid & vets that may be on the downside more than they realize (wash - samuels, fletcher, dall - flozell adams, colombo).

Of course. They're supposed to as rivals...however, we have facts on our side of the argument. Dallas has so many roster holes and seems to have lost more pieces than filled them in the offseason. Also, Wade is still their coach and Romo is still grossly overrated.

Say hello to 14 years in a row without a playoff win.

They'll be battling the Eagles for the NFC East basement.
