The Dallas “Rams” Cowboys looked awful in the loss to the Washington Redskins today. The numbers were deceiving for Tony Romo, who even though he had 300 yards and 3 touchdowns, his one interception was a critical error in the game.
“We don’t want turnovers, and we need to get some. You’re fighting a battle every time you lose a turnover battle,” was head coach Wade Phillips‘s response during the press conference.
But that wasn’t the most annoying thing about Phillips’s comments.
“We thought we could pile it on them and we didn’t,” he said.
Oh really? You thought you could pile it on a divisional rival? I hope he prepares the team for a fight every game instead of assuming that the offense can “pile it on them.”
It’s a stretch to say the Cowboys played like the Rams, because if Sam Hurd catches that onside kick like he should have, we know the Cowboys would have won that game because Nick Folk has got a strong leg. It was those kind of errors that helped the Redskins win, not the normal penalties.
The secondary was awful. Terence Newman was crushed for two touchdowns, and nearly three.
“I don’t think we were too relaxed. We knew this was a good opponent and obviously a good rivalry game,” Romo said during the press conference. It did not jive with what the head coach said.
Did anyone catch that rat Daniel Snyder in the locker room? “If we’re physical, we win!” the idiot owner screams in the locker room like he is a manager for some WWE wrestler. His face was all red, and boy was Danny excited about this win in week 4.
The loss certainly throws the division in disarray. A clear-cut winner is not there, but I guess one can choose the NY Giants because the Cowboys will not beat that team if they play like they did today. I saved the game tape. I will try to cut through it this week and let you all in on what I see.
But just keep this in mind: The Cowboys played a very poor game and lost. The Redskins played a very good, error free game, and won.
Terrell Owens said at the press conference that the Redskins corners did a lot of bump and runs, and it took him and Romo off the routes. What a game plan! The Cowboys defense ought to try this approach because once again there was way too much cushion on the Redskins receivers.
“I didn’t feel any relaxation in our team,” Owens repeated.
If Romo and Owens didn’t sense that the players appeared relaxed, why did we?
