  • Anyone surprised Felix couldn't finish the game? Eeeeverytime he gets a chance he flashes something and then like automatic... he waives his hand to the sideline and asks to come out. Unbelievable.

    • Felix did finish the game, he came back. Felix just had cramps.

      He looked good. But they all looked good against a struggling Ravens run D. It will be interesting to see how the running game progresses from here.

      Thanks BoneKrusher^

        Oh yeah... cramps after running the ball 5 times.

        I liked the flashes he showed though. It's been a while since we've seen that Felix.

        • It was a weird day with the cramping. Dez got em too. And a slew of other cowboys and ravens.

              I don't like that excuse. You either get cramps from dehydration, not stretching/warming up or being in poor physical condition. I've never heard of the bye week causing cramps.

              In Felix's case honestly it might've been a little bit of all of the above. haha.

              Just reflecting on the game... WE HAD IT! Damn it sucks to lose that one. I loved how we were running on them. Missed that style of Cowboys football. I had an inkling that our line was a better run blocking OL than a pass blocking one, and it if they can do this week to week then I really like our chances going forward. IF.. big if... IF we can keep a healthy stable of backs.

              Penalties are just taking it to us right now. Right up the gut. Garrett needs to fix that as HC. He needs to be a harsher disciplinarian. Wouldn't you just love seeing him chew out a guy for once or give someone a harsh stare even? Oh man we need that!

              Speaking of Garrett... what was up with that last series? We wasted time again! We had another chance to move the ball up before Romo just stood around waiting for the clock to tick down to 4 seconds. Spike the ball and run another play! We had 26 seconds left when we ran the play before.

              Oh well... I don't want to sound too ungrateful cause the guys really did fight hard and never gave up. They battled great odds to be there in the end to win the game. I feel like there are some good things to take away from this game going foward.

              I hope Demarco and Mo are alright and that Spencer can come back soon. Sucks being last place in the NFC East.

              • I didn't get to see much of the game because I was too busy watching the Raiders do whatever it is you wanna call what they do, but I did see Dez's TD and then his big drop at the end. That was a killer.

                  Jason Garrett coached scared in crunch time. He can talk about trusting his defense until he's blue in the face, but he looked like a coach who was afraid that his offense would make a catastrophic mistake. Why else call for a run up the middle on a third-and-9 in the red zone when your team trails by one point late in the game? The Cowboys got away with the ultraconservative play call, but it's a classic case of coaching not to lose. That approach blew up in Garrett's face last season in New England. The Cowboys' defense also looked confused way too often.

                  Sums it up, no?

I have a feeling we'll be spinning the mid-round roulette again aiming for a high potential guy to groom behind Ware.

                    Defense is certainly looking good although I can pretty much guarantee we'll be targeting and linked to every available safety this offseason.
                    I wouldn't mind if they kept Butler around as a specialist since he's familiar with the system. He's good at rushing, but the problem is everywhere else. He doesn't jump out on special teams to make his presence felt, and he got the opportunity to really prove his worth with Spencer down for two games. In those two games he could have shown a lot, but his one dimensional weakness makes me see why they picked up Wilber. Wilber seems like Spencer in the sense where he's versatile, and I'd rather have that. Sure Butler could probably get double digit sacks if he started all season, but there would be a lot of blown plays as well. When you consider that double digit sacks is only 4 more plays every year from Spencer's usual sack production of 6 that's not really worth it.

                    Cool. Let's stick together. lol Spencer is a lot like Greg Ellis. I remember some people didn't realize how good he was most of his career until he finally got double digit sacks. I used to call him Michael Strahan lite because they were similar players, but Strahan was an outright beast where Ellis was very good as opposed to racking up some sacks and not being a factor much outside of that.

                    • Did anybody else chuckle when Felix had to come out like 1 carry into the game? Lol. It's kinda hilarious to me. There was a 0.000001% he came out of this game without being on the injury report the week after, he needs to just run out of bounds as much as possible.



                      I also agree with everyone else on Spencer, I think that may have been D who hated him a bit lol not really sure. I had been saying all off-season if he leaves someone will pick him up and be very happy about his play. His sack numbers are the only reason people aren't paying as much attention to him but once you wrap you mind around that's not really his game, you notice how many other things he does well.


                      That said I don't know he's worth an extension though, I'd rather sign a Guard.

                        I will admit I was one that was against bringing him back.

                        While, I would still disagree with your comment about him being a 'great' player, I think he is solid to very good and I would be in favor of resigning him.

                        However, I think we still need the caveat of how much is it going to take to sign him.

                          I don't know how much stock you put into ProFootballFocus stats..but he continuously grades out in the top 5 in his position. That's..."Great", imo.

                          Not "Elite" though. But how many teams have 2 elite pass rushers that can also play the run well?

                          • Gonna be a great game this week. Dallas's defense is very good this year, I'm curious to see how our WR core does against them this time around. We need Nicks to bounce back, he's still limited so I expect Carr to handle him pretty thoroughly.

                            Clairborne has been great so far. I think coverage wise, you guys have an answer for our offense. So I expect it to be a battle. Our teams are very evenly matched on paper.

                              For us, I think there are two key items. Will Lee be able to play and will we be able to run the ball some. If those two are positive answers, I think we can win.

                              Look, the NFL is a week to week deal. This game could be great or it could be a blow out. Who the hell knows.

                              • I'm also curious to see how Fewell decides to attack your interior OL. Last time, he put JPP inside and hoped he could create inside pressure, but it didn't work. I hate when he does that bc JPP is so much more effective as a RE. We should never move him around, but whatever.

                                Fewell doesn't like blitzing, so I expect more of the same. We'll see lots of DE action inside, some stunts. Most likely see some JPP at DT. I'd like to see them blitz the A gap all game long but he won't do that. So it will be interesting to see how your interior OL holds up to our DEs who get kicked inside.

                                Your run game like you said is the ultimate equalizer. If you can run and force us to keep some of our DEs off the field in our nickel packages, that will help a lot. I think your outside WRs have to take advantage of their matchups too.

                                We'll give you a lot of umbrella looks. I like Austin in this matchup.
