A couple of OLineman are struggling (Gurode and Davis)?
Whoa! Who would have thought about it? I hadn't seen them struggling, so if they're struggling now, they're done! It's over! They should be traded for a couple of donuts because in the end Costa or Bright are as good or better!
Ok, let's take a deep breath.
Did you saw something new? Those two guys also struggled in a Playoff game recently, but those 2 guys can also play at a pretty high level, pretty much elite, but the lows are easier to see.
I don't like them because they're inconsistent and how can you trust someone that is that wildly inconsistent? But, the thing is, the Cowboys CAN use them to win games because they've won games with them in the lineup and they aren't anymore inconsistent than they were. We can only hope that they become less.
Out of seeing those games you think that they're more inconsistent? Well, how do you deal with an inconsistent performer at anything? With focus and preparation.
What's the common thing in PRESEASON? Lack of focus and preparation for games.
Call me unimpressed by their struggles.
The Defense suddenly can't stop anyone?
No blitz packages, staying in the 3-4 pretty much full time and pretty much everything vanilla football on Defense makes you think about.
Reality: The Cowboys use a lot of blitzes, against the pass and run, and they aren't using them.
Reality: The Cowboys used the 3-4 in around 40 or 50% of the snaps last year and they couldn't use some specialty packages that Wade has used (like the Cowboys package) because he lacked depth at OLB. They're staying 3-4 in close to 80% of the snaps right now.
Call me steadfast, call me homer, call me opinionated, I just refuse to hit the dang button.
