COWBOYS HOLD ON FOR 45-35 WIN

romo-game-1-07.jpgHey Cowboys fans, just a quick lowdown after the game with a more detailed analysis to follow tomorrow.  Tony Romo had a spectacular game with 345 yards and 4 touchdowns with 1 TD rushing and was named “horse trailer” player of the game by John Madden.  However, there are some issues with the defense, which allowed a banged-up Giants team to score 35 points.  Some untimely turnovers helped them out, but it appears that the loss of Terrence Newman and Greg Ellis is more of a factor than anticipated.  Eli Manning and Plaxico Burress hooked-up for three touchdowns that were basically “at will” throws-and-catches.  The Cowboys secondary was porous all night, but Jacques Reeves did come up with one interception that led to a Dallas score late in the second quarter.   He gave way too much cushion to Burress all night giving the big receiver any route he wanted and Manning was able to take advantage all night until he got injured and left the game late in the fourth quarter. 

A win is a win, but you have to be concerned about a defense that can give up ten points in less than two minutes at a critical stage of the game.  After playing so well in the preseason and having the expectations that a “Wade Phillips” defense has, it was a bit of a shocker to most Cowboys fans to have the game end as close as it did.

    The cowboys dominated the giants in the first half and i was disappointed that they gave up so many points in the second half but you have to give them credit for taking down some of the giants key players for at least that game.
