Cowboys Lose: Quick Thoughts

Well, like most fans, a part of my Christmas Celebrations went down the drain. What is it about "Big Games" and a team with no real home field advantage -it's pathetic.

Ok, we lost, but we're still in the playoffs. That being said, the next question is: How can we win with the defense in shambles? Answer: We won't..... With this lousy play on defense we won't even beat the Seahawks who appear to be playing as shitty as we do.

Looking over the entire season, and moreover the second part of the season, we have ZERO pass rush, and this exploits our secondary weaknesses - bigtime.

Roy Williams is a hitter, and an intimidater to some wide receivers, but don't ask him to cover. He's horrible in coverage, plain and simple. Overrated? perhaps. I still like Roy Williams, but you have to examine some of the pros vs cons, and I think they are close to even, so he probably stays onboard despite for some calling for his trade.

Anthony Henry is on his last leg, literally. He appears to playing injured, and this is nothing new. Henry has some durability issues, and when he's not 100% look out, he'll give up a shitload of plays. Let's consider upgrading the CB spot with a another shutdown type cornerback.

FS? Don't get me started.

The defensive line has been very disappointing and Parcells has seen it. There's no pressure from Spears or Canty most of the time. Ware cannot do it all by himself., so we will need to consider an upgrade at DE spot.

No matter what we do from here on out, an offseason priority will need to be the defensive line and secondary. Mark it down, start studying up on this years draft prospects and NFL free agents. The defensive pass rush is totally shitty, and we all know it.
