Dallas Cowboys Good, Bad, and Ugly From Week 3 Against Seattle Seahawks

Well , the continue to take us on a roller coaster ride week in and week out and the Week 3 matchup with the was no different. It ended up being a close game in the end, however, the Seahawks got the last laugh with the 38-31 victory.

The Dallas Cowboys head back home next week to take on the , which will hopefully get them back to the .500 mark. Before we get too far ahead of ourselves though, let's get to this week's edition of The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly. As always, feel free to share your own thoughts and opinions in the comments section.

The Good

Despite all the mental errors and mistakes, the Dallas Cowboys still showed quite a few positive things yesterday against the Seattle Seahawks. For me, the good from yesterday's matchup was , although I do believe deserves a shout out. Smith ended up sacking three times, bringing his total to five for the season if I'm not mistaken. He's been without a doubt the Cowboys best this year and it's not even close.

The Bad

No if's, and's, or but's…the bad for me in Week 3 against the Seattle Seahawks was without a doubt the Dallas Cowboys self sabotaging play. Turnovers, , blown assignments, and poor play all but giftwrapped the game for the Seahawks yesterday afternoon. It was sickening to watch and sadly not all that unexpected considering it's starting to become commonplace for them this year. It's hard to win when you're beating yourself and the Cowboys proved just that yesterday afternoon.

The Ugly

Everything that could go wrong did go wrong for the Dallas Cowboys in this Week 3 matchup with the Seattle Seahawks. For me, that was the ugly this week. From start to finish the Cowboys played undisciplined and did just about everything within their power to give the game away. I admire their resiliency not to give up, but they absolutely deserved to lose. They made way too many mistakes in all three phases of the game, which in my falls on 's shoulders. I think that's completely unacceptable considering his experience.

What is your good, bad, and ugly from Week 3 against the Seattle Seahawks?

The Secondary played very Bad, lots of penalties, the only guy who is doing his job is Diggs. I don’t know if injuries or personal things are interfering with DLaw’s play but till he got payed his way of playing is going down every game.

The Good: We are in a terrible division and are still at the top! Maybe we can hang on and get everybody healthy them put together a good team! Also we kept it close with a make shift OL and DB’s The Bad: We have to be consistent with our kicking game! Our special teams needs something for sure! The Ugly: Making mental Errors like roughing the passer and giving teams a second chance at scoring! And needing X amount of yards for a first down and running a route three yards to short!

Lawrence is playing like trash, but we know he’s going to blame it on his knee injury or the fact that he’s in a 2 pt stance. For some reason, he’s nt getting to the QB. If I was the Cowboys, I would try to sign Aldon to longer term deal and trade Lawrence for picks of possible.


Really, again its the Coach that is the problem Did we not just get rid of Garrett, because HE was the problem.
Sorry, not buying this. Before the season almost everyone was praising the change to McCarthy. When do we start putting the reason for this bad start where it belongs, ON THE PLAYERS. Players have to execute the plays. What is happening with D Lawrence, 1/1. Get a refund, very disappointing. Very fortunate we signed A Smith, 4/0, 3 more sacks. The last week hyped, T Hill, 1/0, plus dumb penalty, and dirty play.

We knew we had a tenuous LB group (or WE SHOULD HAVE as many commented here), with Smith regression, LVE and Lee heath problems, why did we not draft a LB. Same with Safety position. It is coming back to BITE US bigtime.


Go find safety help.I think Earl Thomas would be great.For couple reasons he can play close to the line of scrimmage like a LB and still drop in to coverage. He’s a great tackler and he’s smart. Need a vet back there they ( young guys)look lost all day. If not earl somebody

Agree it’s too convenient to blame the coaches. However when a team is as undisciplined as this one has been, it has to fall partly on the coaches. The effort and production part of it agree with. Certain players are simply not producing especially considering their contracts. If ur highest paid and so called best players aren’t balling, your in trouble. Zeke and Lawrence are the first one’s that come to mind. Lawrence talks a good game, but has been underwhelming for 2 yrs now. Zeke looked like he was sleep walking in the Seahawks game. I know Seattle is tough against the run, but he looked slow and uninspired. Dak also has to be consistently better.

The LB Corp had me worried from the get go despite some prognosticators calling them one of the best in the league. I knew they were a house of cards. J Smith has looked slow this yr and is regressing quickly. LVE I knew with his type of injury the prognosis wasn’t good despite his claims that he ” felt as good as he ever has”. And S Lee well it’s like VAM said “as sure as the sun sets in the west”.

C Wilson surprisingly looks really good in a small sample size. And not surprisingly Cooper is banged up again. The secondary was our weakest link going into the season so to have injuries there was devastating. That coupled with the Collins/Smith injuries put us behind the 8 ball from the beginning. But this team battles to the end and because of that we have been and will be in every game.

I think our LBs have been doing pretty good so far this year!! I agree Smith has been a little slow, but he’s been making plays, and Joe Thomas has filled in really well, he’s been the best LB out there in my opinion!! And our d line has been terrible, especially D Law!! The only player on the line that has been doing good is Aldon Smith, and speaking of him…. I told everybody he would come in and prove everybody wrong, and look what happened…. He’s the best lineman we have!! The only other linemen that’s been doing decent some of the time is Trysten Hill, and he even made a couple of stupid plays this week that cost us the game!! And our secondary worried me from the beginning, but I can say that Diggs has surprised me quite a bit, he’s getting beat a lot, but he’s still making plays and he’s probably the best DB we have!! And I can’t understand why the coaches kept putting Worley in as the starter as much as he kept getting beat, I was screaming for them to put Brandon Carr in the game, he mite be old, but he’s definitely better than Worley!! And one person in really disappointed in is Jourdan Lewis!! I have been a big supporter of his, but now he’s playing like crap, and I about can’t wait for Anthony Brown to come back!! And by the way, Aldon Smith only has 4 sacks so far, Everson Griffen got the other one for the edge rushers and Woods got the other one for us, and I believe that’s all the sacks we have so far!!
