Five things to be Taken From the Dallas Cowboys Win Over the Washington Redskins

Not all wins are going to be pretty, in fact some wins can be down right ugly.  The most important thing to remember about any win, though, is that it is still a victory none the less.  Like any other game the Cowboys have played this season there are some positive things to take from the game, and there are also some things you hope to never have to repeat.  Here are 5 thoughts I took from this game.

1. Tony Romo did not have his most impressive game of the season going 19 of 27 for 198 yards throwing one TD to his 2 interceptions.  The two interceptions, however, is a misleading fact as only one should be marked against Tony Romo, the other was in and out of the hands of Terrell Owens.  For the most part it looked like the offense was completely out of sync for the majority of the game, but there was a lot of evidence particularly at the end of each half, that the Cowboys will be able to work this kink out relatively quickly.

2. This is really only the second time this season we have seen the Dallas Cowboys defense step up their game to an extremely competitive level.  The question now is, can they keep it up?  If the Coaches and players can find away to keep up the motivation like it was on Sunday night against the Redskins, I think this Cowboys defense could take on anyone.

3. Is it time for Wade Phillips to stop coaching penalties?  This seems to be one of the Cowboys’ biggest downfalls for the last three years.  Some might call it a lack of discipline others a lack of concentration, I just call it a problem.  Too many potential drives were ended early this game because players were either jumping the line early or because players simply weren’t where they were supposed to be.  I think some of this can be improved as team continuity is regained, but there might still be some lingering problems even after that.

4.  I might be reading too much into some of Tony Romo’s iladvised passes, but it did look like the splint might have caused a few problems at different points in the game.  It’ll be interesting to see how he and the trainers intend on correcting that, or if he intends to go the next game with out a splint at all.

5.  I’d like to see the Cowboys play a few more games this season before making any bold predictions about playoff hopes, nevermind their Super Bowl asperations.  It is, however, still a possibility that the Cowboys could go on to make a push well into the playoffs this season.  The New York Giants are the best team in the Division still but with 6 more games to play in the season anything can still happen.  One thing is for certain the Cowboys are going to have to stay focused and play more fundamentaly sound football to get there.
