Think it’s time we stop mentioning talent and the Dallas Cowboys in the same sentence because certainly that talent hasn’t translated itself onto the field nor has it produced the wins as we predicted before the 2010 season started.
Instead of getting a fairly easy AND first win of the season at home, they looked like Larry, Curly and Moe running into each other on the field, missing tackles and giving up 100 yards rushing to the opponent’s running back.
Look up and the end of game score says Jaguars win 35-17.
It all ended with a grand total of 4 interceptions by replacement quarterback Jon Kitna (though he was only technically at fault for one of them) despite 300 yards in passing. The loss is also an indication the Cowboys running game was a no-show, again, though offensive coordinator Jason Garrett has 3 nice ones to choose from. Perhaps the worse choice he’s making is shelving perhaps the most dangerous one of all of them right now in Tashard Choice.
Sorry decision making again. We have already seen how a guy like Choice can make a difference anyway, so may as well let him and perhaps a few other young ones get in the game. What do they have to lose?
Well, after another embarrassing beating at home on both sides of the football the Cowboys are now 1-6. And, folks, that makes digging themselves out of a hole and into playoff consideration highly unlikely.
How has this team gone from a deadly weapon to a disaster? Not one Cowboy player or coach or owner Jerry can offer an explanation as to what has happened. Listen how Marcus Spears was just as speechless and really it’s no surprise because we haven’t heard from his play on the field has either the last few seasons. But he makes for a nice postgame interview.
How can they begin to solve this puzzle?? Only winning will do it. But please believe it’s going to get worse before it gets better for the Cowboys. They hit the road this Sunday to face Green Bay, who unlike the Jaguars, will be pretty good at home, even with several players on injured reserve.
