Since Week One, this Cowboy team has looked “different” to me. More professional. More focused. Less flaky. More “business.” Less bullshit. More defense. Less “defensiveness.”
Above all, more trustworthy. More mature. Less likely to break your heart.
In and of itself, losing to the Chiefs at Arrowhead is no shame. It’s “how” that disturbs me.
That O-Line is (once again) a shambles. Five sacks. Dak wasn’t sharp, but, too often, he had no chance. Was that Chris Jones? Or Deacon Jones? Yes, the K.C. defense has gotten after the QB for the last three weeks, but let’s not forget that as recently as mid-October the Chiefs’ D was the worst in the NFL.
The Cowboys’ offensive gameplan? Moore, I know you’re a genius and everything. Maybe you just forgot to take your Celebrex. Elliott and Pollard COMBINE for 16 carries? In a tight ballgame? In a game in which you can’t protect your quarterback? RUN THE DAMN BALL!
Dropped passes. Many of them embarrassing. Cedric Wilson…dude…
The Cowboy defense was actually quite good. And Micah Parsons is The Truth. Who’da thunk that Patrick Mahomes and Dak Prescott would combine for exactly ZERO touchdown passes?
This may get murkier before it gets clearer. Yeah, I’m pissed at Amari Cooper, who may end up pissing away two games. Man up and vax up! CeeDee’s concussion is a concern. I’ll bet you a serving of dressing and a piece of punkin pie that he does not clear the protocol before Thanksgiving Dinner with the Raiders.
It’s easy to say that nothing means nothing until January. But that’s a loser’s mindset. And objects growing larger in the rear-view mirror may be the Philadelphia Eagles. No. I’m not kidding.
More mature in 2021? I’m reassessing.
I’ve never seen so many injuries (and illnesses) in the NFL. As a result, reserves and practice squad guys are having to start and log heavy minutes. That means mistakes, including dropped passes. Lotsa dropped passes.
But what’s Travis Kelce’s excuse? Kelce is a future HOFer. But he drops way too many balls for a player of his caliber. And this is not new. I was screaming that at the tv six years ago. Don’t take my word for it. Ask BB, who is not amused when I scream at the tv.
I do not know Tyrod Taylor. I’ve never met Tyrod Taylor. But I’d like to. Hombre. And by multiple reports from multiple NFL cities, one of the greatest teammates ever. That was a wonderful win for the Texans. And thanks for the help, Tannehill!
Were you locked in watching ball yesterday? More proof that the NFL is the DAWG and everything else is just the tail. When it’s good, there’s just nothing else like it.
TEAMS YOU DON’T WANT NONE OF RIGHT NOW
Patriots. Vikings. Eagles. WFT (Seriously). And especially…
…The Colts. It’s not too late for them. I could ABSOLUTELY still see them winning the SB. Jonathan Taylor?
TEAMS THAT DON’T WANT NONE RIGHT NOW
Jets. Giants. Falcons. Seahawks.
I ALMOST feel sorry for Pete Carroll. Almost…
TIME TO PRESS (MASH?) THE PANIC BUTTON
Bills. They’re in trouble.
Let’s hear it for…
Somebody told me something about LeBron getting pissed about something? I’ll look into it…
