Re: Smoot Lays the Smack Down (Redskins at Cowboys)

I actually thought Haslett called a good defensive game. That third and 21 was a bad call by him thought only because they were able to adjust to it after seeing it the previous 2 plays/looks. It was Haslett's gamble in addition to Hall's gamble with looking for the pick that made that play work against the redskins. It's not about playing less aggressive-- they just need to know when to take less risks and be less predictable about it.

That said, the D played a really good game, but why did Romo take no hits in the 1st half but they had a lot less yardage? I wonder if the blitzes backfired on more than just that one big play. I'd have to watch most of it again.
He was probably going for the kill shot, hoping to force an INT. He's a blitz happy coordinator, and he's not the only one. As we all know, that philosophy will burn you sometimes, but pay really nice dividends when it comes together.

He is taking Tuesday off because his cape is at the cleaners.
Hilarious........the media is on that boys jock like no other in recent memory.

.. and if Hall played overtop of Bryant that play (and then play closer to him near the 1st down marker) -- Romo doesn't throw it, or throws it and Hall stops him before getting the first down.

Re: Smoot Lays the Smack Down (Redskins at Cowboys)

My smackdown goes to Rex Grossmans speed and girly hands.

Good God I'd rather have Trent Williams w/ the ball scrambling out to the left then Grossman.

Grossman even was looking behind him and still couldnt stop from fumbling. He is so damn slow. If he gets touched he fumbles.

Grossman is who he is. If he starts all 16 games he is good for about 30 total turnovers counting Int's and fumbles.

That being said he should still get the start vs. the Rams. Too early to pull him.

What do we do though? Do we stick with the idea that we know Rex will have bad games from time to time and hope that next week could be a 4 TD 0 int rebound performance or do we start entertaining the idea of pushing for Beck to get a chance because I'm with you on the scrambling, it's very painful to watch Rex try and move outside the pocket.

Shannahan made his choice so he is gonna stick with Grossman. Beck is much more agile then Grossman but Shannahan didn't choose that option. I'll trust Shanny and hope it all works out in the end.

Put Grossman and Romo in the same pot. You are only as good as your last game (if your name is not Brady or Manning).

Week 1 Romo played lights out for 3 quarters. Then threw an interception in the 4th and he was crucified. The following week, he fractures a rib and plays through it and wins the game and he went from zero to hero.

In weeks 1 and 2, Grossman was good, very good. Everyone was singing his praises. He has one bad quarter (much like Romo did) and now Grossman is the one getting crucified. Hero to Zero.

What happens in week 4 if Grossman goes 28-32 325 yds and 2 TD's and 0 INT?

Romo is a poor mans Brett Favre and Grossman is a poor mans Tony Romo. We'll get there. Our Defense is good. They'll be unreal next year and the offense will be next year what the D is this year.

When was the last time Dallas was held without a TD? They broke Romo's 20-game streak of consecutive games with a TD pass.

You're going to have games where one side will have to bail out the other. You're also going to have games where the score will be close. What I want to see is SMART decision making throughout, especially at CRITICAL JUNCTURES. Now, an all-out blitz wouldn't necessarily have been a bad thing, IF HE hadn't TELEGRAPHED THE SAME THING TWO PLAYS IN A ROW ALREADY.

Kyle Shanahan I'm a big fan, but his playcalling was extremely suspect today. He completely abandoned the run, especially after Hightower had such a nice drive culminating in a TD. It's one thing to be aggressive, but running actually helps you be aggressive. And why make a substitution with no timeouts left in the first half and under a minute to go. We had the momentum going and killed it.

DeAngelo Hall Sure, you can blame Haslett for the all out blitz on 3 and 21 but if you're going to talk the talk like Hall does you better be able to back it up and give your DC confidence that you can handle a 1-1 assignment

Jammal Brown After TW basically handled Ware all night, Brown basically escorted him into the Redskins backfield

People Who Keep Blaming The Media **** all of you

We blew a huge chance tonight to go 3-0 and 2-0 in the division. We're 2-1 which is not 0-3 as some may be thinking after tonight but we can't let repeated chances pass us by as they did tonight.
Agree with all that...and I'll add poor effort by Brandon Banks in the kick and punt returns. He seemed to be more hesitant than usual. With his speed, he is good when he takes the ball and goes vertical . Last night I thought I was watching Randle El dancing around again. He never gave the offense a short field, which is his sole purpose in life. I'll give the Cowboys some credit for good coverage, but with the number of opportunities he had, I was disappointed.
