  • On third down, where Dallas won the game, Tony Romo was nine-of-11 for 140 yards, one touchdown and that quarterback rating of 149.1.

      • Sweet road win

        Remember remember the 8th of November......

        You know Philly will. Just like Dallas remembered getting their asses handed to them last December in Philadelphia when all they had to do was win for a WC slot & nothing, just nothing went right. Don't Call Me Pacman with a fumbled a punt bought himself a ticket out of Dallas, & you could imagine the TV sets being turned off all over Texas.

        This was an earned win by the Dallas offense & the coaching staff in the booth. Revenge is sweet.

        It was the triumph of the best game plan ever. They used the signature WR screen effectively early & often, so in the 4th qtr that set the draw to Barber with a huge hole to run through b/c the pass rush had cleared out the whole side & remaining defenders played the screen. Romo's pump fake & look to the fake WR screen sold it.

        On the Miles Austin only pass of the night for a TD, they had noted the Eagles corners jumping routes early, so they sent him on one baited by another Romo pump fake. Austin all alone & nothing but EZ in front of him.

        Suddenly November isnt the minefield for Wade Phillips job security that we thought, Dallas owns the NFC East.

          Obviously those were with Moss getting alot more targets/catches, but just gives you an idea of how ridiculously high his YPC is right now.


          Ironically Austin scored on the same play that TO scored on vs Philly in week 2 last year, on TO's 1st TD.
          Austin is looking a lot like a quicker, a bit smaller, Vincent Jackson type right now.

          I dont say faster because, while it doesnt look like Jackson is the fastest, the guy ran in the low to mid 4.4's. Long strider.

          You see a lot of similarities in their game right now.

          • Something needs to be done with Bobby Carpenter. His play continues to be horrendous and costly.

            • I hope all the love we are getting does not go to their heads.

              Still not December on the road ....

                Oh dear Jesus. Carpenter Derangement Syndrome. What did he allegedly not do now?

                So coaches are praising him and you are killing him? I thought the coaches know more about football than we do?

                ... and the McCoy run was Bradie's and the SOLB fault for getting sucked in on drop and not moving their feet with the OL. Carpenter was covering man in the flat on the play -- either Celek or Weaver.

                  If the coaching staff thinks he was playing well, I sure would like to read that. I'll revoke what I said too.

                  But McCoy ran right by where Carpenter was being turned around and he just looked "handled" by the blocker. Didn't recognize a single good thing he did all night. His blitz attempts are the saddest things to witness. It really is.

I don't think its accurate to call him a two down player, not by a long shot. But eventually if you aren't getting home, there is a problem with what you are doing. He's playing well, though, and Dallas is clearly among the very best in the league at rushing the passer. I can live with his lack of sacks as long as the team is getting them and we are pressuring the opposing QB in general.
                    Yeah you're right about him getting good pressure. Two down player is overreacting, but maybe next season he can do the opposite of what Ware did. He can shed 5-10 pounds to get that extra burst to the QB. I'm not ready to give up hope on him, because I feel that he's a very good player that's only a few plays from being considered great. Almost nothing gets by him, and against the pass he's very exceptional. It just sucks that sacks are such an overrated stat, but that's how it is.

                    • Anyone want to speculate on whether Romo abandoned Austin to please Roy Williams?

                      Looked that way to me.

                          What do you mean by pleasing Roy? Roy has never complained about his targets.

                          I don't expect a balanced amount of targets for each WR on every game. Who does? The defense predicts a lot of where the ball goes depending on the coverage.

                          Besides... Austin almost ended up with 2 TDs.

                            It's not like Romo was forcing the ball to Williams. The times he threw to him, he was open, and Roy made the plays. From the looks of it though, it looks like all the attention was on Austin. Even on his TD catch, there was three guys in the vicinity.

                              I mean throwing him the ball to get him to stop complaining.

                              Then what do you call last week's comments?

                              Sometimes, and sometimes you throw it to your #1 and expect him to make a play.

                              Yes, but he had 4 passes thrown his way and only one the second half.

                              Kind of a play-maker don't ya think? He was open quite a bit too -- particularly when he lined up in the slot.

                              Last year, most complained when TO was not force fed the ball, why Garrett did this or that, how TO was great .... so I am making the same point about Austin last night.

                              • Roy specifically stated that he was concerned about the way the passes were coming his way. That Romo's passes to him were off target.

                                He never complained at all about not getting the ball.
