Now now, not concerned about our level of play as much as our health.

- Bigby has a hamstring issue. Very problematic in the sense that it is so sensitive.

- Collins has something wrong. Long stretches of play that he missed tonight, and he's starting to finally display some good play making ability. We need him, after tonight it's clear that Rouse is the third best S on this roster.

- Barnett's shoulder problem. Not sure what it was, but it might be a potential problem in him being able to tackle. Hopefully it isn't too serious.

- Al Harris ... something. He cramped up, and reports suggest that he had blood in his urine that concerned the doctors enough to not send him back in the game. We need Al, no matter how much father time is starting to (supposedly) catch up with him.

- KGB's knee. He hasn't been as effective tonight as one would've thought, maybe it was just the great play by the OT blocking him tonight. Hopefully that's the reason, KGB's strength is his speed and quickness, and we desperately need him.


I don't know about you, but I'm concerned about the health of our key players on D.

Judging by tonight, we desperately need Harrell back too.

I'm really sad that our defense has to be out on the field for such a long time, because our offensive line can't throw a block.

To put it in a nutshell, The Cowboys have a great O-line.

The Packers O-line wasn't as good.


Injuries are part of the game and if you don't practice hitting players bodies are not adpted to it.

Injuries happen when Aaron Rouse is hitting your players instead of their players. He gets to the play late as he did when hitting Barnnett's shoulder off of making a tackle.

I would not be critical of the Packer Defense but give credit to the Cowboys' O-line that played very well.

Of all the football I have watched this year.. that is the best, without a doubt the best Oline in football. Yes I am concerned about the injuries.. but none seemed to be long term concerns, at least at first blush.

Look no further than our inability to maintain drives in the second half coupled with weak red zone offensive production.

IMO, we did what we had to in order to keep us in the game on defense.. I would rather them chunk it on the ground than give up multiple deep strikes in the air. Watch the highlight of the Austin TD.. focus on Jenkins, he got tackled on his way to Romo.. Jenkins played a good game.

If there is a concern on the D, it is the depth and rotation along that Dline.. we are 5 to 6 deep across the line.. and if we are going to be on the field for those long durations.. we don't have the bodies to rotate inside.

I thought overall our secondary did a fine job with the guys on the field.. Williams was pretty good, Woodson was excellent, Collins played well. Blackmon's strip and recovery was a thing of beauty.

I hate to say this.. but I think we were a little soft in conditioning.. both sides (O and D) were dragging at the end, I can understand the D, but the O just looked gassed at the end.

That sword's got two edges. Our defense could have gotten off the field sooner if they could have stopped anyone on third downs... seems like the 'Pukes ran twice as many plays as we did last night.

The Packers Defense is 27th in total yards surrendered.

26th against the Rush

22nd against the Pass

25th in Points allowed.

According to NFL.com.

That with a game against a very good team in the Cowboys, a poor team in the Lions, and a run of the mill team like the purple slime.
