The defense, as bad as I've harped on them, have been very good the last two weeks. Would've been nice for Newman to make a pick on that ball that Marshall took for the winning score, but overall, they were awesome today. People keep saying that Keith Brooking seems like an upgrade over Zach Thomas. Let me just say that Keith is a huge upgrade over Thomas. It is not even close.
But, as the title of this thing says, without Felix, we are in trouble. Marion is great and Choice is very good, but without Felix, there's nothing scary about this offense. I've pretty much decided that WR is by far our #1 need heading into next year's draft. We seriously have nothing scary out there.
That said, it would help if Romo could hit anyone in stride. Romo looked very bad with his accuracy today. I thought he played smart for the most part but just didn't have it physically today. That said, there were so many times today when there was just no one open. What's he supposed to do with that? Offense needs help. Romo needs to improve accuracy and WRs need to get open. Felix helps everything though when people know he can take it to the house any play. He needs to work on learning how to take hits though, because this whole injury-prone thing is really getting old.
Overall, I was very disappointed that we lost today. I always have this glimmers of hope that we are something great, but then games like these remind me why I think we're about a .500 team. Next week will be huge.
