We have a very "talented" football team of "players". However, our players are not playing as a "team". They are not on "time" with each other, are playing as "individuals" during the games, and aren't playing sound football. The reason every game looks different, and it looks like we have a different way to lose every game is this. Every week we have a group of "players" in the game, but not playing as hard as they could! They are playing as "individuals", and pointing "fingers".

Rolando McClain, Dez Bryant, and Greg Hardy are some of the most talented players we have. However, they fight "themselves" everyday. They all have huge "egos" that at times are a "detriment" to a "team atmosphere". If anyone has noticed they are also the first one's to point fingers, and initiate blame.

They need to realize they are very "talented", but without them "harnessing" their "egos" they will never be as "successful" as they "could" be. Also, they need to understand how to lead. Leaders don't just tell someone when they are wrong. They speak up, and "inspire" confidence in others. If our most talented players, and leaders would "conquer" their own "egos", and fight that voice inside that wants everything to be just about them. I am very confident all of these guys could help lead this team "success".

That sounds like a BS excuse if I've ever heard one SemperFi. Who's playing as an individual and who is pointing fingers? When has Dez Bryant or Rolando McClain every pointed fingers? At the end of the day it comes down to beating the guy across from you.

Also if you compare the Cowboys team to the 7 teams they lost to they might have had more talent than 2 teams tops. Romo was the guy who evened the playing field.

Is there anyone that honestly thought, before the season started, that the boys could not win every one of our final 7 games? Look at the schedule. I didn't! So let's start with Miami. Win one!! We're on a mission!!!

I thought Dez and Williams got flagged because they were jawing with the defender.

How is it that a QB can elevate the play of the defense? That speaks volumes about how impactful Tony Romo Is to this Franchise, to his teammates, and to the success of this Ball Club. Will it be that motivation that Romo brings that could possibly lead the Cowboys over the Panthers of THursday?

@DALLAS74SMH

You and Terry Bradshaw need to talk with player, especially the leaders of this team, about their coach and his leadership abilities. In fact, if you listen, they totally contradict your uninformed opinion. Of course, people like Witten could be just lying to us.

Coaching And Management

When player's aren't playing up to their capabilities, are miss-used, and seem to all be having down years based on their talent you have to evaluate coaching/management. This offensive line hasn't went from one of the best in the NFL to mediocre because their talent has decreased. In fact we added La'el Collins, and the talent on the offensive line is better now than it was last year. Why aren't they blocking as well, as consistent?

The first place that must be looked at is coaching. Is there a coaching change, or leadership change in that area? Yes, Bill Callahan is gone now, and he is at the Redskins. Consequently, their offensive line is playing better than ours based on the talent they have. And they have a lot less talent on the offensive line.

When player's aren't playing, and executing up to their talent level, the first place you have to look is coaching. Dez Bryant, the whole offensive line, the receivers, the running backs, etc. are not performing, and executing at the level they could be. It's not like we have one player not playing good. We have a team of player's who are not playing good, and are out positioned on every down it seems, you have to look at coaching!

A prime example is GreenBay, the team we just played. They had the above issues offensively, and everybody began blaming Aaron Rodgers, the receivers, etc. Can people look at Aaron Rodgers, and say he doesn't have talent? They can't now because he has already proved in the past how good he really is when used correctly. However, people started questioning arguably the best Quarterback in the league, and his receivers. In response GreenBay switched play-calling duties, and Mike McCarthy (THE HEADCOACH) took over those duties. The first thing he did was put Eddie Lacy back as the starter. He then said we are going to run the football more, and stick to it. And then during the game Mike McCarthy took what was given to him while implementing his system of attack. I have to point out that their playbook didn't change. What changed was how the playbook was utilized with the players they had! That is all Mike McCarthy did as the offensive coordinator. Essentially, he took over the duties, and gave the team an "identity". He said were going to do this, and make the other team beat us based on our strengths!

Guys our problem is coaching, and leadership. Good coaches know how to "win" with whatever "talent" they have. They adapt to their "talent" on their team, and then they provide that team with an "identity" based on that "talent'. After that they stay positive, and let the team grow! Sometimes in the growing process you lose, but when you lose a good coach doesn't go changing the "identity" of the team. He simply forces during practice how important it is to be as "disciplined", and "technical" as possible! Fact is your strengths are your strengths, and if you play someone who is just better than you, then so be it! It is going to happen at times.

Also, the coach that called in I would've never wanted to coach me! Matt Cassel may be an average quarterback in talent, but intangibles make up a lot. Every player on this team with the right coaching would be made better! That same coach that called in needs to go look at Matt Cassel when he played for the Patriots, and when he had "GREAT" coaching. Matt Cassel during that time looked like a "TOP 10" quarterback, so much so, teams around the league were willing to trade for him! So I completely, and respectfully disagree! However, I still would never want that guy to be my coach.

By the way Mike McCarthy out coached Rod Marinelli to the point of embarrassment. He coached a better game, and put his player's in the position to "win". He forced our defense to adapt to his "offense". When he did that, he already "won" the game.

Rod Marinelli should have made GreenBay adapt to his "defense", but he didn't. He started off not playing bump-in-run, and not blitzing. Which allowed them to run the football. Afterwards, Mike McCarthy simply out-coached Rod Marinelli.

Successful defensive coaches force the offense to adapt to them, and they keep that constant. If they don't do that, they get exposed, and out-coached. Which is what happened to Rod Marinelli with GreenBay, and with Tampa Bay.

The offensive line is better than ever. Their results are worse because opponents keep eight and nine men in the box knowing our offense can't complete a pass.

Was Brandon Weedon #52- #54 on the roster? So why would you release your backup quarterback, who hadn't thrown an interception, and was playing without a named starting running back (because of coaching indecisiveness), and without the best receiver on the team in Dez Bryant? Brandon Weedon new the system, and the player's better because he had been in the system for over 1 year. The previous year Brandon Weedon relieved Tony Romo, and played pretty well! During that game alone he showed he could be productive, and that's why he was kept as the backup, and we didn't draft a quarterback!

In my opinion the coaching staff needed to take some heat off of themselves, their indecisiveness with player personnel, play-calling, etc. They did that by releasing a player who hadn't thrown any interceptions, and was on an offense in "turmoil" over injuries and bad coaching! Putting the blame on bad quarterback play, and bad running back play! When Brandon Weedon was released that was the "excuse" given. That quarterback play was bad, and he was "conservative". However, anyone in leadership, and that knows football could see that Brandon Weedon was coached to play "conservative". The plays called where conservative plays! And in my opinion Brandon Weedon done what he was told, period!

Instead the coaching staff goes out, and gets Matt Cassel. He hadn't played any this season, didn't know our system, our terminology, or our players. His last productive season was with the "New England Patriots", and since playing for them he had played for 3, or 4 different teams with no "success"! His quarterback rating was terrible, he was reckless with the football, and he lost games for those teams with his decision making! Quarterback is one of the only positions on the field that can lose a game for a team by themselves, even though football is a team sport. Their decisions can lose football games.

With that said, did Brandon Weedon ever lose a football game for the Cowboys based on his decisions? No, he did not! Brandon Weedon didn't do anything to "win" games, but he didn't make costly turnovers causing the team to "lose". How many games has Matt Cassel lost with his decisions, and his interceptions? He has lost at least 2 games by himself because his interceptions led to points for the other team! With Brandon Weedon in the game those games are "wins"!

With that said, that quarterback decision has been only one decision of many other bad ones that this coaching staff has made, period!

The fall from 12-4 to 4-12(sic) is not poor coaching. It's lack of talent at quarterback. You can't win without scoring. You cant score in this league if you can't pass.

The Defense is better than last year despite not getting the sacks and turnovers. They are 9th in total defense. They are third best in points allowed per game.

The offense is 31st in points per game.
