There are some signs of life in the offense for the first time since Romo went down.

Watching the back to back catches from wide receivers Terrance Williams and Devin Street on the sidelines, showed that maybe the Cowboys offense will work better under Matt Cassel (provided he can keep from throwing interceptions). While there still seems to be very little in replacement for injured running back Lance Dunbar, if they can find one more weapon to fill that role, the passing game looks to be strong when Dez Bryant returns.

The running game wasn’t great, but it was much better. Darren McFadden looked every bit as the possible answer at running back with Christine Michael as a change of pace back. Joseph Randle got injured early, so while it isn’t fair to leave him out, he hasn’t exactly been electric this season. Another week of improvement and the running game could be an asset again.

It was good to see the Cowboys offense move the ball. While Cassel didn’t make some good decisions at times, defenses respected his ability to throw the ball more than they did with Weeden. If Garrett and the rest of the staff can get Cassel to make better decisions, the Cowboys could pull out a win or two in the next few weeks.

What the Cowboys really need is one great game from the run game. If the confidence is instilled with the players, they should slowly start playing better. The offensive line looked better this week and the installation of guard La’el Collins looks to have been a smart move. Another week or two and this line could reclaim its best in the league billing. With Romo at quarterback, it takes the line to a whole other level.
