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 touched on the over reacting in another thread. C'mon now! :P

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.

Anyone still think Aaron Rouse should be starting?

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.

I agree. We have some area's we are better than them, but overall they have better talent than we do and it showed.

He doesn't make the plays, he only picks the players.
Yeah......it's ALL TT's fault.
Geez.....this is getting old.
You are ONE post away from my "ignore" button, as you NEVER have anything to say except anti-TT, or pro you-know-who.
Getting old.....fast.

Did you watch the game? Seriously?

I want you to answer me this. What defense can constantly be carted out onto the field when their offense fails to sustain a drive? The defense got worn out because they couldn't stop the run and couldn't stay off the field.

An offense is supposed to eat up clock, get points and keep your defense fresh.

It was ONE game. If this is a reoccurring theme, then I can validate your comments. Until then, this is silly non sense talk. :)

I don't have room to make any calls, but I own another site and what you are doing is border-lining on trolling my friend.

We have above average defensive personnel. What we don't have is an above average defensive coordinator. If you brought Jimmy Johnson in here from Philadelphia, our turnovers and sacks would go up.

Last night we had our asses handed to us, no doubt! We were also short handed with several others playing and nicked up. We'll get another shot at those boys, and I hope to God we don't let Romeo stand back there for five seconds every pass attempt.

I know.....Romo had all night to find someone. We got to him a few times, but most of the time he just stood there and waited for someone to get open.

I kind of disagree. There were only a few times I noticed he had a lot of time and those times he really made us pay. Even on some of the plays we got in his face he made us pay.

We got to him and we did have him rattled but without Al Harris covering the other guy, we got burned.

They've also played one the best rushing teams in MIN and one of the best offensive teams in the Cowboys. No, the defense is not elite but they will be better then the rankings show. In a game last night, they needed 1 or 2 more DLmen to rotate in and out to keep the pressure on Romo and Barber from getting 5-6 yards down the field before he's touched.

I was impressed at how Brandon Chillar played yesterday. What about rotating Brady, Jenkins, and KGB?

Perhaps the thing that worries me the most is if the OL will get it together. I know Wells will probably start this week and that may help but the holding calls are also something that needs to stop.

bingo!

I don't blame the D as much as our OL stinks and because our OL stinks, we weren't getting enough first downs, thus keeping the D on the field and letting them get worn down.
