    What the Cowboys Did Right and Wrong Against the Seahawks

    What a crazy game last night. Somehow throughout all the chaos, the managed to scoot past the Seattle Seahawks in a nail bitting score of 26-27. What did the Cowboys do right to win this game, or, perhaps more importantly what did the Cowboys do wrong in this game?

    Let's first start with the number of yards gathered by each team. For the third straight game, the opponent had gained more yards than the Cowboys. The Seahawks had 328 yards while the Cowboys had 286. How do the Cowboys keep winning with fewer yards?

    In this game the answer to that question is turnovers. The Seahawks had a total of 5 turnovers in the game with three coming from their starting Drew Lock. His performance was so bad that Coach Pete Carroll had to come out and say that will be the new starting quarterback for the team.

    Upon the downfall of the Seattle Seahawks, let's take a look at how the Cowboys did.

    Quarterback threw for 88 yards and two touchdowns in the game. Much better performance than at the beginning of the year. Grier could have thrown for more yards in the game but the two touchdowns were critical to the Cowboys victory. Another impressive stat is how the Cowboys managed to win while the Seahawks had their starters playing for most of the game.

    Now yes I know the Seahawks as a team are not very good this year upon losing . However, when just about all the Cowboy players on the field are backups, you know that the team had to play well to win. Now even with that said we can not ignore the poor performances in this game.

    The Cowboys need to realize that they can not keep winning games by having fewer yards than the other team. Last week against the , was the hero scoring two touchdowns to help win the game. This week it was the huge amount of turnovers the Seahawks handed to the Cowboys.

    Forcing turnovers is good and the Cowboys did a very good job with that defensively, but the lack of is frightening. The Cowboys will be going up against the in week one and will for sure need to improve their offense in order to win that game.

    With all of this knowledge that has come out of the Cowboys , fans will be eager to see what they have in store for the first week of the regular season. If players stay healthy and the offense looks better then winning will become more of a habit in the league.

    There is no substance to this article. Okay, yeah… more yardage would be ideal, but at the end of the season we want W’s not yardage. If your going to talk about what they did bad, then be specific. Were there too many penalties? Bad blocking? Missed assignments? Poor rout running? Bad passes missing open receivers or missed reads?

    Very much a whistling in the graveyard article.
    Essentially, the Boys offense with the backup QB and whatever line is awful.Cut all 3 backup QB . They’re so untalented that someone coming in with talent and one week of practice could not be worse. The no plan offense line is inexplicable.
    Get Dak a suit of armor, he will need it …and God forbid the backup QBs play.

    I actually thought DiNucci played well in all three games. Sure, it was against bottom of the roster players. But, he also had bottom of the roster protection and receivers to work with so it kind of evens out. He looked decisive and has some arm talent. Still need to work on his “football intelligence” side of things, but he looked like he belonged, unlike when we saw him last year.

    I would love for them to bring in a serviceable vet at QB, but the pickings are slim and likely will stay that way. I was hoping Mason Rudolph would be a cut, but it’s looking like Pittsburgh may actually get something in trade for him. Nick Foles might still end up being an option if the Colts decide to roll with Matty Ice and one or more of the young guys (Ehlinger and Coan).

    Agree LW28, DiNucci has shown improvement. That said, not sure what that will get him, and as you said, he’s playing vs bottom of rosters. All three potential “backups” have kind of evened out, IMO, which is not necessarily good, as there is not one that stands out. “Leader of the pack”, CR appears to have regressed somewhat, BD has “maybe” improved, and Grier is somewhere in the middle. Not a “warm and fuzzy” situation there.

    Obviously, the 5 turnovers were big for the Cowboys. Some were good plays, others were gifts off receivers’ hands, etc. Somewhat impressed with WR Brandon Smith, DE Sam Williams on Friday, (and Turpin from last week) just to name a couple of players. But bottom-line, should be obvious this team has pretty big questions at O-line, WRs (until Injured come back?) and QB2 (which has been for YEARS, and of course, can’t give DP any real competition?). To be totally honest and putting all the hype aside, and when looking at other teams and their key players, unfortunately, these Cowboys don’t match up all that well.

    Long suffering Cowboy fans deserve better.
