Was in DC for the weekend and caught the game out there. Tough loss but still at the top of this garbage division.
Funny how people complain about the Cowboys not having enough "leaders" or guys that are passionate about winning, and when they do have one, people try to lump him in the same category as "team cancer."
Dez going off had nothing to do with Megatron getting #s. Dez was the first person celebrating when Williams caught that slant and took it to the house. Interestingly enough, that play came AFTER Dez was on the sidelines going off.
This team and its core set of players have come to accept mediocrity as the norm. Their fault or not, this is the reality. The Cowboys also play 'not to lose' rather than 'play to win' and this was where Dez was most upset. This was even more apparent in the 4th quarter with a minute and some change to go before we ran that play which cost us the holding penalty. Right before this play, Dez is on the sidelines shaking his head. The Cowboys take an extremely conservative approach instead of going for the 'kill' especially on the road. What ends up happening works in Garrrett's favor because the defense is left with having the games in their hands, which they ultimately botch. Thus, it always appears that we have issues on defense and have trouble stopping teams. But it wouldn't come to that if we would go for the kill instead of this conservative *** ********
I'll have to go back and watch the tape of the altercation with Dez and Witten as they cut the game off in DC to show RGKnee and the Skins. But from what I was reading on some forums was that Dez was pissed at the fact that we were being so conservative with the drive before that which could have sealed the game.
