Remember: It Was Only One Win

Everyone was happy to see Dallas notch their first victory of 2010, but before we all get too excited, it is important to remember that this was only one win.

We finally got a glimpse of the potential this offense has and with the breakout of Roy Williams and Dez Bryant continuing to make his impact felt, the fan base does have a lot to look forward to as the season progresses.

“But we have to realize it was only one win,” head coach Wade Phillips said. “We are still only 1-2.”

With the good comes the bad. The Cowboys run defense still looked awful. They were torched by Texans tailback Arian Foster — who rushed for 106 yards on only 17 carries. Dallas’ defense will face an even tougher task when they face off against the Titans and star running back Chris Johnson following the bye week.

“We need to practice three days this week,” Phillips said. “And then get some rest and come back Monday. There were certainly miscues, negatives, things you need to work [on] and coach better. But overall we have to pleased with at least that game.”

Hopefully with the extra time the Cowboys can focus on their weakness and put together a better gameplan to stop Johnson and the Titans.
