We beat Seattle in Seattle last year without RG3. Plus, we had like 3 kicks blocked and still won with a Roy Helu TD.
As long as they win.
I'm sure Robert's INT was on his mind...and I'm sure the coaching staff's as well.
Why chance it when they are scheming your pass?
Cold. Nerves. Drops. Knee ....and he still won the game.
If that's RG3 when everything is working against him....I'll take it.
RGIII had a bad day and didn't look like himself.
I think that he was cold, nervous, and isn't 100%.
I'm not trying to be a homer, but I'll take it for one game. As long as he lights it up for the next four, I'm totally fine with yesterday. :)
33 carries; 200 yds and 3 TDs is what was wrong with the passing game.
I heard the Kung fu panda had a couple of pancakes. Watching the line just mash them was a thing of beauty!! In big games the more physical team usually wins. With ware dinged up I thought it was very smart to run at him. It's easier to rush the passer than to try to hold your ground and be stout vs the run.
As a play caller myself you always take what the defense gives you! Pass game was sputtering and the run game was on fire!
The run was working too well for us to worry about passing the ball.
We dominated the line of scrimmage on BOTH sides of the ball. Why throw when your run game is staying ahead of the chains all night?
What's with this "no way we'll beat seattle" I mean, haven't you learn anything over the last 7 weeks? :doh:
Seattle is 3-5 ont he road? And they are not going down the street ...they are crossing time zones to come play us.
Dropped passes and some miscues. Remember, as good as RGIII is, he is still a rookie. Our receivers must catch the ball.
Something that somebody tweeted, Dallas was absolutely committed to stopping the pass and the play-action. They played 2 safeties back, and didn't bite on play action. They were committed to stopping the pass. And Kyle and Mike were smart enough to know that if they were going to be that committed to stopping the pass and the play-action, just hand the ball off and make them pay for it.
I imagine that next week, the Seahawks are going to try and take away the run a little more, and the play-action stuff will open back up. Dallas had seen this offense once before, and they bit on the play-action hard in that first game. So, they didn't in the second. The Seahawks haven't seen this offense before, and so, they'll probably bite a little more on the play-action, and some of the outside stuff will open up.
As far as I am concerned, the gameplan worked to perfection. We saw that we could unleash Morris early in the game even when we didn't score. We stuck with it and it paid dividends.
Thanksgiving happened. Dallas was hell bent on stopping the zone read passing game. This left open the run, and run they did.
Dallas came out with a game plan to stop the pass which pretty much worked although two drops helped them. They also never stopped the run so few passes were called so we never really got into a rhythm.
