Found November 01, 2012 on Football Nation:
One of those seasons for the Dallas Cowboys. Currently one game under-.500, the Cowboys head to the Georgia Dome to face the lone undefeated team in the National Football League on Sunday. Do not expect America’s Team to snatch a road loss. Furthermore, the Cowboys will miss the playoffs for the fourth time in the last five seasons. Here is why.1. As noted earlier this year, the Cowboys struggle with discipline. Dallas is clearly one of the most talented teams in the NFL. It is debatable that they are more prolific than any of the teams they have faced thus far this season. As shown by the record, the Cowboys have not executed as expected. While Tony Romo ranks in the top-5 in average yards passing, he leads The League with 13 interceptions. He has thrown only 9 touchdowns. Maybe the running game is the problem, but Felix Jones’ unquestionable talent and fallible execution raises questions outside the lines. Since the Dallas Cowboys became America’s Team, playing with a star on your...

Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo has thrown nine interceptions in his last two games at Cowboys Stadium with four coming in Sunday's 29-24 loss to the New York Giants.

Benching Romo 'not practical' says Jerry Jones

Tony Romo has thrown more interceptions than any other NFL quarterback through the first eight weeks of the season. Some probably believe the Cowboys starting quarterback should be benched. But it's not that simple. All of Romo's turnovers aren't solely his fault and there is no guarantee that Cowboys backup quarterback Kyle Orton would have better results with the same...

Larry, Lawerence,The Real LT…either way Lawerence Tynes gets Vanderjacked!

As the old saying goes, “As Lawerence Tynes goes so do the New York Giants”…and this week was no different. The Giants were able to hold off a fierce attack as Tony Romo was throwing balls right at defenders with no mercy. Tynes has had a fabulous season and the Giants are off to a good start. He is 24-26 on the season from field goal range with his only two misses being...

Cowboys look to spoil Falcons' 7-0 record

IRVING, Texas -- The error-prone Cowboys haven't been good enough to bob over .500 and are 0-7 in their last seven Sunday night games. This week's Sunday night foe, Atlanta, has been so crisp through seven games that the Falcons have yet to lose. And yet Cowboys owner Jerry Jones is willing to "guarantee" a win for Dallas as long as you hear the "if"...

The Friday Blitz: Jerryworld Comes to Town

The Friday Blitz this week will be short and to the point. I have some concerns and some thoughts on the upcoming game. First, here are some of my concerns heading into the Dallas game.

Dallas Cowboys: Week 9 NFL Power Rankings (#17)

Last week: 16 (-1) Record: 3-4 The good news for the Cowboys is that they rank 8th in yards per play differential and 7th in rate of sustaining drives differential.

Reflections at 4-4

Louis Bacigalupi posts comments on the site as LouieLouie.  He’s an accountant by trade and worked in a USFL front office.  He can be reached by email at Louie@fiercelyI.com.
