Dallas Cowboys must feast on cupcakes

PHILADELPHIA — The banner unfurled in Lincoln Financial Field’s Section 119 late in Sunday’s game said all you need to know about the sorry state of the Philadelphia Eagles:

“ANDY, QUIT. YOUR TEAM HAS!”

Yep, Andy Reid’s team (for at least a few more hours) is an even bigger mess than Jason Garrett’s Dallas Cowboys. Heck, the Eagles are a much bigger mess than the Cowboys, as evidenced by Sunday’s final score: Cowboys 38, Eagles 23.

It took a little while for the Cowboys to make it clear that they weren’t as bad as the Eagles. Or for the Eagles to fall apart, depending on your perspective. But then Garrett’s beloved all three phases went boom, boom, boom — Dez Bryant’s diving 30-yard touchdown catch, Dwayne Harris’ 78-yard punt return for the go-ahead score and Brandon Carr’s 47-yard pick-six - in a span of 155 seconds.

Tony Romo and Dallas Cowboys Face Disappointment

ATLANTA – Tony Romo had to face his boss, Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones, after his team dropped another close game on Sunday.
Looking despondent in the team’s locker room, Jones was far from speechless in voicing his disappointment with the Cowboys.
As the team fell 19-13 to the Atlanta Falcons, suffering their fourth loss in five games, Jones was regrettably in familiar territory.
Jones never imagined in training camp that Dallas would be 3-5, but with Atlanta holding the ball for all but 17 seconds of the final 5:21, the Cowboys ran out of time.
“Very disappointed that we didn’t have a chance and play better in the second half,” Jones said.
“A play here, a play there might have made a difference. They’re 8-0 because they’re a good team. They play tough at home.”
Cowboy’s quarterback Tony Romo was well aware his performance was not up to par: “We had some key third down plays that we couldn’t convert.”
“We had some drops. We had a short-yardage play that we had an opportunity to get. That stuff comes back to haunt you. You need those plays.”
Romo completed 25 of 35 passes for 321 yards, but the Cowboys were held to 65 yards rushing, including 39 yards on nine carries by Felix Jones. DeMarco Murray missed his third straight game with a sprained right foot.
After Ogletree’s touchdown, Dallas burned all of its timeouts as Ryan kept the Falcons’ offense on the field in the crucial time-consuming drive. Ryan passed to Jacquizz Rodgers for 31 yards and 11 yards on third-down plays. A defensive holding call against cornerback Orlando Scandrick on another third down prolonged the possession.
Finally, the Cowboys stopped Turner on a third-down run at the Dallas 14.
Romo never attempted a deep pass on the final drive, but he had only 17 seconds to cover 80 yards. He found Jason Witten for passes of 7 and 11 yards, leaving 9 seconds. He passed to Felix Jones for 8 yards, leaving time for one play from the Cowboys 40.
Romo scrambled before passing to Jones, who was dropped near the Atlanta 22 to end the game.
“I think any time you’re in that situation you obviously want to get the ball back with a chance, and it’s tough,” Romo said. “That’s why they’re a good football team. They’re tough to beat at home. They proved it when they were able to run the clock out at the end.”
Ryan was 24 for 34. Roddy White had seven catches for 118 yards and passed Terance Mathis for the most receptions in Falcons history. Julio Jones had five catches for 129 yards.
Witten finished with seven catches for 51 yards and now has 754 receptions for his career to surpass Michael Irvin’s franchise record of 750.
“Nobody’s going to give up,” Witten said. “We’re to stay working together and believe in each other, but obviously there’s a tremendous amount of urgency right now for our football team.”
Miles Austin led the Cowboys with seven catches for 76 yards, but with the score still 6-6 late in the third, he dropped a third-down pass that would’ve given Dallas a new set down of downs near the 50.
For three quarters, it was a kicking contest — and a pretty shaky one, too.
Bryant kicked field goals of 45 and 46 yards in the second quarter for Atlanta’s only points before Turner’s score. Bryant also missed from 43 and 37 yards, wide right each time.
Dan Bailey’s field goals from 23 and 32 yards were the Cowboys’ only points in the first half. He missed from 54 yards.
Ryan was sacked three times and faced constant pressure, but his 48-yard pass to Jones set up Bryant’s 36-yard field goal in the fourth quarter, pushing the lead to 16-6.
Dallas defensive coordinator Rob Ryan blamed himself and wished he hadn’t called a zone blitz on Turner’s 43-yard run late in the third that set up his TD run early in the fourth.
“I didn’t hold up my end, so it’s all on me,” Rob Ryan said. “It’s damn unfortunate right there, but it’s the truth.”
The Cowboys struggled most of the night to cover both White and Julio Jones, one of the NFL’s top receiving tandems.
“I really can’t think of one (defensive back) that didn’t have a missed tackle for the game,” safety Danny McCray said. “That’s just something that we need to go back and work on, look at the film and work on so it doesn’t happen again. Probably just bad technique. Getting lazy, getting complacent, thinking you’re just going to run up and make the tackle and it’s not happening for you.”
Jones insisted that Jason Garrett, whose record as coach dropped to 11-13, is in no danger of losing his job even though Dallas faces a tough task next week when it visits NFC East rival Philadelphia.
“I have a lot of faith in Jason,” Jones said. “Jason’s future is ahead of him. I know how hard he works. I like his philosophy, so I’ve got a lot of confidence, a lot of faith. One of the brightest spots I see is our head coaching and our coaching in the future.”

Dallas Cowboys and Tony Romo Suffer Bittersweet Defeat

BALTIMORE – It was a loss the Dallas Cowboys had every reason to be proud of.
Amassing 481 yards, including 227 on the ground, the Cowboys set a record for the most runs against the Baltimore Ravens. Keeping hold of the ball for more than 40 minutes, the Cowboys even reached a season high in points and totaled 30 first downs.
However it was the final score that left the Cowboys with little to celebrate.
It a tight game the Ravens trumped the Cowboys 31 to 29. Jacoby Jones tied an NFL record with a 108-yard kickoff return, and Baltimore won its 14th straight at home by holding off two Dallas threats in the final minute.
“I am sick about losing this game,” Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said. “This is a very tough place to play. We made our share of mistakes, but I thought we had a shot to win at the end.”
They sure did.

Church Upbeat Despite Season- Ending Achilles Injury

IRVING, Texas – As he sat on the Cowboys bench in the second half of Sunday’s win over the Buccaneers, his right shoe and sock taken off, Barry Church had a look of sheer disappointment.

He had just learned his season was over far too early following a Achilles tendon tear – either full or partial – that will require surgery on Tuesday. Teammates came around to try to console him, but what could they say to make it better? Called too slow, Church had gone undrafted following four years as an all-conference star at Toledo, only to make the Cowboys in 2010, slowly work his way up the ranks and easily beat out veteran Brodney Pool for a starting job this offseason.

As disappointed as Church was on the sideline, his mood had turned less than an hour later. Speaking to reporters in the Cowboys locker room, he supported himself not only with a pair of crutches, but with his familiar smile.

“On the sidelines it was kind of just shock, like, wow, this really happened. But once I sat down I just kind of had a little talk with myself and figured, you know, you can’t be negative about everything. If you keep on the negative, you’re just going to become a negative person, so I’ve got to keep upbeat and keep positive, and see what happens.”

What will happen is a months-long recovery that will determine the direction of Church’s career.

Some players returning from Achilles injuries are never quite the same – longtime Cowboys fans will remember former first-round pick Kevin Smith, who was hurt in the season opener in 1995 and came back the next year, only a half a step slower. But outside linebacker Greg Ellis suffered the same injury in 2006 and then won NFL Comeback Player of the Year in 2007 after posting a career-high 12.5 sacks.

With the final year of Church’s contract coming in 2013, a lot is riding on his recovery. It will only help to remain optimistic.

“I’ve just got to keep my mind straight,” Church said. “I’ve got to keep my head up. I can’t let this injury get the best of me. I’ll be at the house for a while just relaxing with the cast, but I just can’t let it get the best of me. I’ve got to go out there and continue to get better.”

Though the injury certainly has career path implications, the thing that bothered Church the most in the aftermath of Sunday’s game was that he won’t be able to help this year. Over the preseason and his three starts in September, he had appeared to solidify the safety position of a much improved defense.

“It’s pretty tough,” Church said. “I came out this year looking to make improvements on my game. I feel like I did that the first couple games I played, but this happened. It’s a freak accident. Things happen. But I’ve just got to battle back and try to come back stronger.”

Dallas Cowboys: Predicting Production for Dez Bryant and Seven Other Receivers

The Dallas Cowboys are uniquely positioned to harvest a fantastic breakout year from Dez Bryant and Miles Austin or fall back on a productive committee of receivers, should more problems crop up with Bryant’s head and Austin’s hamstrings.

Thus far in training camp, the reviews are glowing for Bryant, but Austin’s hamstrings are indeed acting out. The Cowboys are being exceedingly cautious with Austins latest mild strain and are anticipating his return soon.

Provided there are no major issues with these starting wide outs, here are my predictions for their production in 2012, along with several other Cowboys receivers:

Dez Bryant: 1,380 yards

This is Bryant’s breakout year. Reports from OTA’s and now training camp say that he has a much better grasp of the offense and the route trees he is responsible for. His physical ability has never been questioned and it now appears as though his mental approach to the game has improved substantially. Off the field is another matter.

Jason Witten: 1,000 yards

Witten is the most reliable receiver the Cowboys have had since Michael Irvin. He is a consummate professional.

Dallas Cowboys Claiborne sprains MCL

OXNARD, Calif. — A team source told ESPN’s Ed Werder on Saturday that Dallas Cowboys‘ first-round pick Morris Claiborne is expected to miss a few practices after suffering a minor MCL knee sprain.

Team officials didn’t believe the injury was serious, but scheduled Claiborne for an MRI on the sore right knee after Friday’s practice.

“He had a little twinge there in his knee and our trainers thought it would be best to give him the afternoon off,” team owner/general manager Jerry Jones said. “At this time we are not concerned.”
