My Quick Thoughts on Broncos at Cowboys 2013

October 7, 2013

  • Tremendously exciting.
  • Incredibly disappointing.
  • Tony Romo gave the performance of a lifetime, throwing five TD passes and threatening the all-time single-game record by passing for 506 yards. But he threw a fatal interception late, enabling the Broncos to kick the game-winning FG as time expired. Most people will choose to focus on that INT, but I will focus instead on the fact that the Cowboys would have lost this game by AT LEAST 30 without Romo.
  • Remember after the Rams game when everyone thought the Cowboys’ defense was Doomsday III? Good times…
  • Monte Kiffin’s crew has now surrendered more than 1,000 yards over the past two games, while allowing 81 points. If you want to know why the Cowboys are 2-3, look no further than this completely ineffective unit. Unless they get things figured out FAST, it’s going to be a long, painful year for this team.
  • Jason Garrett also deserves a significant share of the blame for this loss, especially for his decisions late in the game. Now that he’s a “walk-around” coach, there’s just no excuse for this anymore.
  • Next week, the rival Redskins roll into town, for what has become an absolutely critical early season game for the Cowboys, as the difference between 2-4 and 3-3 is huge. Will they be able to ride the offensive momentum from the Broncos game, or will their dreadful defense drag them into the abyss? We’ll find out on Sunday night…

    I think the Cowboys have “flamed out”. They used all their offense for this one game and like the turd in the toilet, it is going down with the rest of the season. The crappy cowboy defense now couldn’t even stop a mediocre 6 man high school team from scoring. Adios Cowboys you let me down too many times.

      As much as I hope yesterday’s offensive outburst is a promising sign of things to come, it also wouldn’t surprise me in the least to see them go back into the tank against the Deadskins next week.
