If I have any time this weekend I'd really love to stitch together a reel of all of these moments (you know, times when all his pathetic teammates fail the great field general) and set it to the "Benny Hill" theme music.

I agree. a lot of that game was lost due to good strategy used at the wrong time. 3rd and 21, you let your D do what it has been doing, it's worked well.

same thing with the 2nd series after our touchdown, since the quick strike didn't work, we should have, imo, gone to a ground game that seemed to be making strides.

Losses just are no fun.

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

I had no problem with blitzing on 3rd and 21, as Shanahan said Romo made a play and got it done. If we had sat back and given him all day to throw, we'd be sitting here wondering why we didn't keep blitzing when it was working so well prior to that.

Sometimes the other team makes a play, you can't win them all.

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

This "you let your D do what it's doing" principle is superseded by the "don't let your opponent know what you are doing" principle. Considering that he called the SAME play twice in a row already, you DO NOT do it a third time. If the opponent knows what you play is, they'll find a way to beat. Not only that, BEATING A cover-0 means BIG PLAY almost every time.

Also, playing prevent USUALLY results in a dumpoff to the back. He could have called an overload blitz to one side, a zone blitz. An all-out cover-0 blitz was NOT necessary.

Yes, I did. He's still getting over his injuries I suppose. Unfortunately, it is the NFL and as much as we all like Cooley it's a business. Next year might be very questionable for CC.

I don't know what his future holds, but I don't think he should be running the ball on 3rd and short. I'm still scratching my head at the two attempts he had in Monday night's game.

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

According to Casserly, next year Cooley will be a big cap hit. I hope he restructures and stays with the team. He still has a lot to offer and he's the kind of team player we want. Nothing wrong with having two quality TE's. If Davis were to go down...then what? When they're both on the field, I think if they're used properly and Cooley's healthy, it can cause problems for the defense.

Yeah, I dont see CC leaving the team. I see him restructuring to stay with the team. Monday night showed his versitility again...Shanny loves that type of stuff.

Maybe he will stay as just an HBACK?

Agree 100%. The coaches across the field get paid too and they're going to figure it out....obviously.

Calling the same play 3 times in a row on a critical drive is pretty bush-league IMO.

Gibbs called the same running playing in time after time with Riggins and company, basically saying to the other team you have not showed me you can stop it so I will keep shoving it down your throat.

Same on Monday night the Skins had run 0 coverage 2 times with great success, so in their minds they were saying you Dallas have shown you can't stop it so we will do it again. Romo beat them on it on the third go around it happens but it was still the best bet choice at the time.

The D was definitely not the bad guy Monday night.
