Cowboys Buckle in Lose to the Jets
Posted By David Willow On Sep 12 2011 @ 12:03 am In Dallas Cowboys | No Comments
The Cowboys came out firing on all cylinders on both offense and defense. Facing a playoff caliber team in an emotional atmosphere, and in the end they blinked. Romo threw a costly, and questionable, interception with under a minute left putting the Jets in a easy position for a field goal.
What’s probably the most sickening for any fan that may have been watching, was to watch a team that had shown massive improvement revert to the bumbling mishaps of a Tony Romo fumble that cost them at least 3 points, the interception late in the game, and the poor special teams play that resulted in a touchdown for the Jets defense. Unfortunately, the majority of the mistakes came late in the game and Dallas just didn’t recover.
There are some positives to take away from this shameful breakdown. Many people, didn’t think the Cowboys would come out so strong.
The defense was solid against the run, which was a question mark during the preseason, and they showed promise against the pass.
Dez Bryant is a star. Plain and simple. He started the game strong and forced the Jets to send Darelle Revis his way. Now if he can just maintain his focus for the duration, then Dallas has someone really special.
Miles Austin looked good as well, coming off of a sore hamstring, snatching a touchdown away from the hands of Antonio Cromartie.
Even Felix Jones ran hard and with a sense of purpose it seemed, though his stats wouldn’t reflect that so well.
Maybe it was just me, but there seemed to be a lot less worry when Dan Bailey kicked a 35 yard field goal than there might have been with David Buehler.
It was a disappointing loss, especially to watch them squander a lead, but hopefully they bring the kind of play they had in the first half each game and maintain it for the duration of a entire game.
