Cowboys Accused Of Violating “Code”

ferguson-v-denver.jpgIs there a “code” for preseason games as expressed by Denver S John Lynch after Saturday’s game against the Cowboys?  If there is, it’s news to Coach Phillips and the rest of the Dallas team.  After Saturday’s loss, John Lynch reportedly said, “They came out and game-planned us, blitzing every play,” in an article in The Denver Post. “They came after us. It’s no excuse for the way we played. But I think they might have broken the code of ethics for the preseason.”

Phillips was non-chalant upon hearing about the comments.  “I don’t know any defensive player that doesn’t want to be aggresive,” he stated.  Considering the Cowboys are tweaking and making some changes to their 3-4 defense of a year ago, it should have been expected that they would blitz and be more aggressive than before. 

“If you’re putting a new system in, you got to see how things work on live film instead of at practice against your own guys,” said NT Jason Ferguson,who is adapting to a new system, the one gap, instead of the two-gap he played under Bill Parcells.  Ferguson also had the first sack of the season against Denver which ended the Broncos first offensive possession.

Regardless of the existence of some code concerning preseason games, the main thing is that the defense has held the first-team offenses of two very good teams to nothing but field goals.  That’s great news so far for Cowboys fans and that makes preseason worthwhile, practicing a new defensive scheme to prepare for the regular season.

    Typical Broncos, but I’d least expect this from Lynch!
    Bronocos are trash, very weak and always falter for their fans to whine away in December.
    Them Boyz were right on bringing the blitz, scare Cutler like Carr, and give Romo a better future
