Someone on BTB's Facebook asked why Doug Free hates Legos. They said it was because he couldn't block. lol

Once Smith is healthy, I'd be open to Parnell replacing Free. Parnell did give up a sack today, but he looked better than Free. Free is a joke!!!

Free is a joke. It's really unbelievable how bad he's become.

That's a good idea leroy. Parnell should step in over Free as soon as Smith is healthy.

None the less a W is a W, and Dez manned up. But another frustration is all of those short routes are there way too often. It's like we try to make things complicated too much. I think Skrine was lined up on Dez numerous times in the 1st half with a ton of cushion and it took us forever to figure out to exploit that matchup.


If we utilize Dez in that fashion more often those short passes open up a ton of opportunities for double moves and big plays. Free can go **** himself and piss off. RT in the 1st round.
Just wait till we get Demarco back. I'm counting on that big time.

Losing Tyron Smith for too long might put a wrench in my expectations though.

Funny thing is that, for the last two weeks (including today), Felix Jones has looked like a brand new man. He is making tight cuts, breaking tackles and fighting for tough yardage. Very impressive.

The funniest moments for me was the one terrible block attempt the announcer just sounded dumbfounded at how someone could be so bad and said "Now that....that's just some inferior play". Then on another occasion a MLB came flying through the line to sack Romo and the announcer called him "an unblocked pass rusher" then on the replay the sad thing was Free actually tried to block him he just did a horrendous job.


No way we cannot address that position next year big time.

Im really pleased with the offensive line, as it is as we sit here right now with the win, Jones said.

This must be an interview with Bizarro Jerry. Either that or he's been smoking his ass off and didn't watch the game.

To be honest though Jerry is a man who speaks highly of everyone. Not two days before firing Wade he gave him a huge vote of confidence.

He can't replace the offensive line now so giving them a vote of confidence is about all he can do. The owner calling out the offensive line for being a bunch of talentless hacks isn't going to make them play better.

-_- We need to pick someone up off the streets to play RT for the rest of the year though. Free isn't just getting beat by speed rushers. He's getting beat by stunts, bull rushes, and grandmothers with walkers. He flat out went from being elite for one year at RT to being one of the worst lineman in the league.

One thing is for certain though we'll have a new starter next season and Doug Free will be on the streets. Hopefully Tron can return so Parnell gets a fair crack at the RT position.

Regardless we need two high potential starters from the draft/FA next year.

That's just Jerry playing draft strategy by putting up smoke and screens about his secret intentions to draft Jake Matthews.

Nothing we havent already said but heres ESPN's take on coaching for this game.

Jerry Jones gushed about the halftime adjustments made by Jason Garrett and Rob Ryan. Well, how about the preparation during the week? It's inexcusable to have dug a 13-point hole at halftime against a two-win team. The offense was especially awful in the first half, accounting for only 68 total yards. It shouldn't have taken Garrett two quarters to figure out that his offensive line wasn't good enough to allow Romo and the receivers to attack the Browns vertically. The Cowboys managed to pull out the win -- or the Browns found a way to lose -- so this won't go down as a disaster. But it certainly doesn't inspire confidence that Garrett is the right guy.

Yes, it's unbelievable. Free used to be not average, but pretty good and now he's just awful.
When is Murray supposed to come back? If we beat the Redskins we'll trail the Giants only by 0.5 game.

The O-line is going to make or break us against the Skins... The good news is that facing their 3-4 alignment might acutally help. Mac struggles against speed inside but tends to handle the bull rush ok, Coefield should be lined up over center which should be an interesting one vs one that I think he can win. Even if Parnell plays he is facing a platoon of OLB help together by a bandaid and im sure JG will find a way to send some help and chips his way. The position to watch is going to be Free vs Kerrigan... Kerrigan doesn't have the stats this year but is still effective creating pressure and eliminating passing lanes on the stong side. It is very dangerous throwing quick passes that way if Free can't find a way to keep his hands down.

I like our matchups at the skilled positions while on offense. Dez is coming off of the best game of his career by far, not only getting open but drawing penalties to extend drives. It will be interesting to see if the Skins will shadow him with DeAngelo or let Josh Wilson man him up in coverage. Witten is going to cause nightmares in underneath coverage if the defense decides to shade the safties deep and Miles is excellent at finding holes in zone coverage if they go that route. I feel the potential for a major Cole Beasely sighting as well with Tree going through the concussion symptoms on a short week.

On defense I hope Rob realizes that the soft zone simply does not work in the grand scheme of things. We need to be able to create pressure and to stuff the run to be affective. Creating third and distance is the key to defending RGII to help alleviate the threat of scrambling for the first. Our corners matchup well against their WR corps and with Fred Davis down they dont have an impact player at TE to attack the interior seam route that we can't find a way to defend. Regardless of matchups if we allow Griffen to parade around the pocket there will be breaks in coverage and running lanes created for him to take advantage of.

- Side note of how bad our run game has been RGIII has 613 rushing yards on the season compared to the 651 combine yards of Murray and Felix.

- Something I noticed in Claiborne's technique that is causing a lot of his issues is that when he uses off coverage he attempts to step up and jam with with WR running full speed. Shifty WR use this to their advantage and by faking inside and getting verticle on the double move. Mo can't help but react to the stab inside and can't reestablish position out of the break. This either forces him to grab cloth or get tangled up trying to regain balance. Two things that I think might help is let him press at the LOS more or give him safety help to the inside so he has the confidence to carry his man down field in deep coverage.

Giants play the Packers too, we could be tied up, but that's looking way too far ahead, as I'm not confident at all in winning our game. Good thing is we can both lose and still be in it.

Good thing is the Skins have a terrible secondary. I'm not too worried about us moving ball and scoring points. I'm more worried about RGIII making plays with his feet. His ability as a passer doesn't scare me all that much.

I hoped that the Browns were be gonna be easier to beat, but to their credit they came out and put up a fight. They are obviously better than their record indicates. After looking at their games, while they are 2-8, they have been competitive in each game. In their one bad loss, the Giants had to rally to beat them before finishing them off.

But yes... there's no doubting the fact that the offensive game plan was once again, really predictable and really frustrating. We all can pretty much agree that we need a better playcaller. Accepting Garrett as the HC seems to be fine, but getting him off the job as OC seems to be the wish of all wishes.

That was a damn exciting game though. Gotta give credit to our D and their O for playing tough minded football... while the jokes of the party were our O and their D. That last few minutes were intense! Dallas D makes a 4 down goal line stance! Wooo!!! Only to see the Cowboys O burn crap off the clock on 3 straight run plays. Garrett was really putting the pressure on the defense with his playcalling. Instead of trying to win the game, he put it on the D to make another stop. It was a ***** call by the guy who wants to be our OC. I mean seriously, he knew we weren't gonna make a push running the ball and he knew the Browns had TOs to burn. This guy who is a supposed passing genius, was scared to pass... then our punter couldn't even get it right either. :/ The Browns O got that TD and that is why I credit them for not "trying to lose the game", but their D definitely did them in. The penalties they gave up on that FG tying drive were atrocious. But hey, kudos to Garrett for telling our guys to fake their injuries to save time outs! Maybe he is a genius OC afterall! Flopping FTW!

I don't see him tossing bombs over our safeties heads to beat us deep. We play to keep the ball in front of us and then try to force FGs. But FGs won't be enough to beat us because the Washington pass defense is one of the worst in the league.

I expect our offense to have their best showing of the year!

I think that it's going to be a close game due to the fact that the O-line is so terrible that the offense can barely move. Washington has some injuries on their defense, but the Cowboys' O-line is so bad that it's like a walking injury. I think the key is to getting to RG3 and putting him on the ground. He makes some magical plays with his legs, but those plays could turn into turnovers if someone strips him or forces him to toss a duck to the secondary. The safeties really worry me. McCray has done well for a guy that is a special teamer and back up, but you could see why he's limited to that role. Sensy sometimes lets things go past him, and I could see RG3 tossing a big one over his head while he throws a hit and gives up yards. I think that if Rob locks the corners down on their receivers and blitz RG3 will be in for a long night because that pressure will come quick. I'm hoping like hell that he doesn't pull that soft zone ****.

Weren't you confident about Cleveland too? Lol come on D. Did you not see the first half of the game vs Cleveland? Then in the 2nd half you still see plays were the D is confused, running on the field late, then we give up the TD. Another time we called a TO to run a play, then got a delay of the game after.


There is honestly no reason you should be this confident anymore haha. It all sounds good on paper, and I honestly think you just do this to pump yourself up for the game. If we went to OT vs the Browns, with Brandon Weeden, you shouldn't expect we do any better versus any real team. Every team left is considerably better then them.

Unless Garrett pulls his head out of his ass I'm pessimistic about our chances. Kerrigan vs Free is a nightmare if we insist of keeping the vertical passing game.

Who knows. Maybe Free will get amnesia and forget the last two years and be the RT we envisioned. Maybe Garrett will decide that no-huddle should be an integral part of our gameplan. Maybe on defense we'll play more pressure based and less "rush 3 and cross our fingers". Odds are though that we'll trot out the same formations and tactics and be down a few touchdowns by half only to ride the emotional rollercoaster to the finish line.

Our rushing game is beyond sad and BtB made me feel even worse about it.

Quote:
53: Cowboys rushing yardage, on 19 carries, which translates to 2.8 per carry. We can attribute the Cowboys trouble running the ball to the injuries and positional musical chairs, but Sunday's rushing output is actually very consistent with what has been happening all season - both in terms of total yards and YPC - regardless of who's been manning the O-line positions or been toting the rock. Indeed, if we take away one of DeMarco Murray's carries - the flukey 48-yard run in week one at New York - both Murray and Felix Jones have 74 carries on the season, for 282 and 278 yards, respectively. That's 3.8 yards per carry, which suggests that Dallas' rushing woes are about this collection of linemen more than they are about who might be the ball-carrier.
No doubt Murray is a better player but that statline is scary.


On a happy note. Spencer is a monster.
Quote:
93: Anthony Spencer's number. The least publicized member of the Cowboys' stellar linebacker corps was outstanding against the run all afternoon, tallying six tackles (with one for loss) and, although he was asked to drop into coverage too often for my taste, chipped in with one of the Cowboys' two sacks - but he made it the much-desired defensive trifecta: sack, strip, and fumble recovery. After being widely pooh-poohed in the offseason, Spencer has proven to be integral to Rob Ryan's defensive scheme. Each week, game by game, we see an uptick in the percentage chance that he'll be re-signed goes up.
