K.C. Joyner delves into our secondary and concludes what we already know. Our CB's can cover (Newman is gold and at least Henry can cover most of the time), our safeties, not so much.
The problem is that these two have not been able to cover up for the deficiencies of the Dallas safeties. Roy Williams, the Cowboys strong safety, has Pro Bowl caliber run-stuffing abilities but his coverage abilities always have been suspect. This year has been no different:
To put Williams' 11.9 yards per attempt into perspective, consider that it would have ranked him 33rd in the league in that metric in 2005. It is also two yards worse than Williams' 2005 season-ending total in that metric.
He then discusses Pat Watkins failures early in the season, and finished us off with a gloomy review of our other free safeties.
Same as it ever was.
This MSNBC article takes on the Tuna. Items discussed include how long Tuna might coach and how much of this year's failures are his fault.
Our longest win streak is only 3 games. That's the reason we are a mediocre club, we can't get off the yo-yo and string some wins together.
Maybe he hates losing, especially with the talent he has on this team. I don't have the answer.
