Cowboys vs. Eagles Grades





T. Romo- B-  He played steady football but had a couple hiccups along the way. The Fumble for the TD and interception  really hurts his grade.


D. Mcnabb- B+  Resembled the Donovan of old. He was hard to take down, creative in the pocket, and accurate.  Couldn’t give him an A with the two fumbles.


Running Back

M. Barber- A   A receiving TD and rushing TD along with over 100 total yards is a solid outing against Philly


B. Westbrook- A+ Almost the exact line a M. Barber except one more in the TD department


Wide Receiver

T. Owens- B+  If you would have asked me his grade in the first half it would have been A+, nut he was nearly non-existent in the 2nd half which lowers him slightly

<o:p> </o:p>

D. Jackson- C+  Became the first rookie in over a decade two start his first 2 games with over 100 yds. Receiving, with that being said let’s make sure we get EVERY yard before we celebrate

Tight Ends

J. Witten- A   Just another solid outing from Witten

L.J. Smith- F  I don’t believe he showed up until late in the 4th

Offensive Line

Dallas- B  Did not allow a sack but Barber struggled for yards

Philadelphia- C  Allowed 4 sacks and Westbrook also struggled for yards

Defense/Special Teams

Dallas- B-  4 sacks, 1FR, kick return for TD but still allowed 30 pts.

Philadelphia- C-  INT, 1FR for TD still allowed 41 pts.


Dallas- B+

Philadelphia- B

Was an all out offensive showdown and a great way to celebrate the final Monday Night Football game from Texas Stadium.

With the 32nd pick in the 2009 Draft Dallas takes

Thats the question on my mind. Who do we take. I think we go WR either B. Robiskie or P. Harvin. Any thoughts?

Can we finally get that playoff victory?

It has been so long since we as Cowboys fans have been able to celebrate a Cowboy playoff victory.  Last year was SUPPOSED to be our year. How can we now guarantee a win this year when we continue to systematicly shut down when the pressure is on. We beat the Giants TWICE during the regular season last year and then crap out to them in the playoffs. I dont know if it is Romo or the Defense or what. The only thing I can come up with (and I know it sounds cliche') is HEART. We dont have the same intensity or fire or whatever you may refer to it as. When are we going to find a way to win in the playoffs?
