IRVING, Texas Cowboys tight end Jason Witten wasn't blaming Sunday's 27-7 loss on the team not playing hard or not being prepared. Too him, it was all about execution on offense.
"Too many missed opportunities. Drops, myself," Witten said Monday at Valley Ranch. "Too many missed assignments. They gave us different looks and we weren't able to get the protection going our way."
Witten was targeted 10 times but made only four grabs, dropping a deep ball early and two others on shorter routes. Despite a bad day at the office, the seven-time Pro Bowler wanted it to be known that it had nothing to do with his recovery from a lacerated spleen.
"Health is good. I feel good. No setbacks. I feel fine," Witten said. "I just didn't play well. I had too many opportunities that I didn't take advantage of in the passing game."
In the locker room after the game, Witten said the team didn't play Cowboys football. On Monday, he was asked what Cowboys football is.
Witten responded that it's physical football that doesn't involve turnovers. Then he added this:
"Look, I'm not here to convince y'all or anybody else what this football team is going to be," he said. "I believe we got the guys that are going to do it. Ultimately, we laid an egg. We didn't do it. And you don't start the season off and bounce around. We're not worried about that. We're worried about executing and winning ballgames. That's where the focus is for us.
"I think it should be clear to you guys that it's not about, 'Were they up, were they not?' We got our (butts) beat, that's where our focus is, how do we bounce back from that. You got to execute. You got to play winning football."

I’m sure like all fans, we are just pissed off beyond belief and with plenty reason. The Cowboys let us down, simple as that. Here we are thinking the Cowboys turned the corner after a great win on the road against the champs, but then they don’t even show up in Seattle. So much for thinking the Cowboys were returning to the 90′s, no these are the same ole Cowboys – inconsistent...
The Dallas Cowboys feel that they have given Felix Jones plenty of chances to succeed. He was handed the starting role as running back and given plenty of opportunities to show that he can be a lead back and receiver out of the backfield. Dallas also even decided to try Jones as a kick returner to show his explosiveness on a regular basis.
But after another costly turnover by Jones...
Just like that, the Dallas Cowboys are a .500 team again.
While it's only two games into the season, there was a long list of mistakes in their loss at Seattle. In a year that they have insisted has to be different after being distinctly average for so long, the Cowboys are 1-1.
After opening the season by winning on the road against the defending Super Bowl champion New York...

This is yet another opportunity to call out the replacement refs as they missed a huge illegal block delivered to Sean Lee from Golden Tate, one of Seattle’s many hopeful playmakers.
This week Seattle’s entire team can take on the title ‘Beast Mode’ as they smash a Cowboys team who looked great in their opener against the Super Bowl champion New York Giants. Their success...
I hate being right.Every week, I want the Cowboys to win. I believe the Cowboys will win. Only once in the modern era has any NFL fan been right all the way through the season.This loss is a good thing for the Cowboys. They beat an overrated team that got hot at the right time and then lost key pieces. The Giants had lost two key offensive pieces to the San Fransisco 49ers...
Seattle Seahawks wide receiver Golden Tate isn't exactly known as guy who delivers punishing hits but he decided to show off his blocking skills against the Dallas Cowboys.
As Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson got outside the pocket to run for a first down, Tate laid out Cowboys linebacker Sean Lee with a nasty hit:
