All except for the Bronco’s game these losses are as a result of poor Offensive play. Even in week one against the Giants the Cowboys barely won with all of those turnovers they created. Against the Chiefs the Offense was nowhere. In the second half of the Charger’s game was the same story, 0 points. They go to Detroit and do nothing at all, it is almost a sad kind of funny. The Cowboys have to see what Defenses are doing to them and adjust, they have the weapons.
You can not expect your defense to shut these teams down for an entire game, you just can not. If your Defense is making plays early on then the Offense has to do its part. Right now they are not and if is not fixed then they have no hope. These losses are inexcusable and they are not fun to watch.
Tony Romo has looked a little off lately and the running game is just a hobby for this ball-club. Besides the two touchdown passes in the second half, Romo had a horrible game. If the Offense can not sustain drives how in the world to you expect the Defense to hold all game? You can’t expect that and this team has to take a long hard look at what they are doing on Offense. Even early against the Lions the run game was doing alright, but the play-calling was predictable. Romo should have checked out of a lot of those second-down runs. If you get 7 yards on first down and they load the box on second down, then for the love of Christmas make them pay!
There were one-on-one matchups all day for the Cowboys to attack and they could not do it. What does the Offense do with those turnovers? Zilch! They did nothing, all those turnovers accomplished was that they kept the Lions from scoring on that particular drive, that’s it.
Obviously the Defense has allowed a lot of yards in these games but the Offense has not helped them one bit.
This was a disgusting loss with horrible play-calling, ugly clock-management, and Junior-League Offense.
