Quick Thoughts from Cowboys and Redskins Game

  • Strange that everyone is shocked that Alex Barron struggled against one of the better pass rushers in the league…there’s a reason a team like the Rams got rid of him
  • Larry Johnson you can’t go out of bounds in that situation…dive on the ground
  • Joey Galloway…starting WR…

And the worst play of the game for the Dallas Cowboys?  This will shock you but it was the throw by Tony Romo with about 30 seconds left in the game with the cowboys at around the 40 yard line.  Romo drops back and throws a horrible pass right to Carlos Rogers and 3 other Redskin defenders who end up dropping the interception to ice the game.  It was a horrible decision by Romo that should have cost the cowboys the game and resulted in every cowboys fan talking about what a bad decision Romo made but because Rogers dropped the easy interception everyone focuses on the below average Alex Barron.

Alex Barron is not the starting right tackle for the Dallas Cowboys so that can be corrected but Tony Romo is the starting QB and throws like that will be what costs the Dallas Cowboys.  Why did Romo make that throw?

Washington Redskins please

give Jason Campbell some big WR’s.  He’s not the most accurate passer and needs larger targets to hit.  That’s one of the reasons Cooley is so effective with him and Moss and Randle El are not. 

 Campbell is only accurate to a point and a guy who is 6’2 or 6’3 is a lot easier to hit than a 5’9 guy. 

The end of the Strong Safety?

The Washington Redskins just picked Laron Landry a safety out of LSU.  He is 6-2 202…your basic FS.  But, the Redskins already have a great free safety in Sean Taylor…so does this mean they are going with the double free safety? 

I’ve been saying for awhile that every team should really go with this.  Most CB’s and FS’s can tackle now and there is no point in having a strong safety out there who can’t cover.  What hurts you more?  A strong safety who gets beat deep or gets a pass intereference penalty or a safety who can’t bring down a RB with a big hit in the open field and maybe needs a few yards to slow him up.  I’d rather give up an extra 4 yards than the big play because if your safety is tackling the other teams running back then you are already giving up 8 or so yards.

 It will be interesting to see if other teams follow this…the Chargers did it last year.  I’m a Cowboys fan and I hate seeing Roy Williams back there at SS.  I’d rather have two FS’s and no roy as his big hits don’t do anything for me and rarely produce a positive play.  heck, half the time he hits our own players. I think it’s old school to use a SS and not necessary.
