The first sting looked great in limited action.
The D was just tight all around. There is alot of depth there in the front 7.
Buehler looked "yippy". He better straighten that shit up.
mark my words, our kicking game is gonna cost us at least two games this year.
My radio debut:
Dude's a beast on KO's....I wish he was more consistent on FG's. Man what happen to Folk, something got in his head I guess.
It be nice if Buehler works out, but if you need to give him another year of strictly KOs, then so be it. Now is not the time to fuck around.
Marc Colombo has surgery, but likely for opener

OXNARD, Calif. -- Dallas Cowboys offensive tackle Marc Colombo could be out only two weeks and should play in the season opener Sept. 12 after undergoing arthroscopic surgery Monday afternoon to remove five loose particles from his right knee.
The Cowboys will be without two of their top three tackles in Saturday's preseason game against the Chargers.
Alex Barron has been out this preseason with a sprained knee, putting second-year player Robert Brewster in the starting lineup.
Owner Jerry Jones, however, is pleased with Colombo's prognosis after the Cowboys feared he could be out up to four weeks.
"I don't have any doubt that he'll be back for the opener, based on the information I just got from the MRI and what we saw the problem was," Jones said. "That's the good news because he's been playing with that type of situation probably for the last couple of years."
Now that the knee is cleaned up, the Cowboys think Colombo can improve.
He struggled in the playoff loss to the Vikings last season and had similar problems in giving up two sacks to Raiders rookie Lamarr Houston last week.
The Cowboys wouldn't have known about Colombo's injury if coaches and trainers hadn't been tipped off by guard Andre Gurode. Colombo doesn't complain about anything but teammates knew he was laboring.
"He wasn't feeling well," Gurode said. "He didn't want me to say anything about it. I made a decision. So I said something about it."
Said offensive line coach Hudson Houck: "I was told by the other linemen. The trainers knew. They talked to me and said, 'let's watch him.' I told him, 'if you got any issue with it at all, get out.' But he is a stubborn guy. It's probably good that that happened. He can get this cleaned out now."
Barron likely would start if Colombo is out for an extended period.
Barron is doubtful Saturday but should be ready for the next preseason game Aug. 28 against the Texans.
Owner has surgery
There had been whispers for weeks that something was wrong with Jerry Jones' right arm.
He had been holding it awkwardly and he had been shaking hands with his left hand.
Now the secret is out, Jones had an orthopedic procedure performed to repair his right rotator cuff. He had the operation July 20.
Jones said the problem stemmed from a broken arm he sustained as a freshman in high school.
But he hasn't been limited in his duties and didn't miss a day of work.
"It was initially a broken extended type rotator joint when I was in the ninth grade," Jones said. "We didn't treat it then. ..."It's nothing in any way that will limit my career."
Jones acknowledged looking awkward at times publicly because he was supposed to wear a sling but rarely did.
So he kept his right arm close to his side and shook with the other hand.
The biggest problem was that it kept him from signing as many autographs as he wanted to for fans at camp.
The bottom line is that he is fine and there no lingering problems.
"A lot of things that are involved in after-surgery stuff I probably could've cut a lot shorter if I had stopped using it," Jones said.
"You just have too much to do so it's prolonging some of that. But it's coming along medically and certainly it's in good shape."

Boom.I won't take Dallas until Dallas has whatever it needs to stop playing 10 vs. 11. And with Roy Williams on the field, they're playing 10 vs. 11.

Game Thoughts: Cowboys - Redskins
* Eventhough they had some trouble on 3rd down, the defense was good enough to win. They maintained pressure on Mcnabb although only finished off 1 sack. Run defense was stout, holding Portis to 18 for 63. Bottomline, if you hold the opposing team to 6 points, you should win the game.
* Although his carries were limited, Felix looked really good both on the toss sweep and screen passes. This guy needs to be starting and fed 15-20 carries a game. The running back by committee thing is not working. Barber looked decent also but I maintain that he needs to be a fullback.
* Austin and Dez were fantastic all game and Romo mostly made the right decisions. The passing game looked solid when Romo had time and wasn't being handicapped by drive killing penalties or bad play calls. Miles definitely played up to his contract. Once Dez gets a few more games under his belt, he will be the monster 2nd WR we all expect him to be.
* Goodness...where to begin? Let's start with the playcalling...it is seriously killing this team. Jason Garrett must be trying to work his way to a head coaching job at Princeton because he obviously doesn't want to be here. Barber option pass in the red zone?!?! Hail Mary call with 4 seconds left on our side of the field?!?!?! Only 8 carries for Felix?!?!? 3 straight quick tosses to Dez when the secondary is crowding the line of scrimmage?!?!?! Jason has been a problem since 2007 and I do not know how he keeps his effing job.
* Next is the offensive line, which overall wasn't horrible. They gave Romo some decent time and the run blocking was not terrible except on 3rd and short. The penalties were just ridiculous though, especially with our Barbie swap out. We should have resigned Flozell and left Barbie on nickel, Barron is effing FAILED!
* Hey Buehler, how about not talking about your girlfriend's bloody crotch and mix in some field goals? You recreated Nick Folk's disastrous season last year by shanking what should be an automatic kick. You didn't even mix in a touchback last night, why are you still on this team?!?! We should be hitting up the waiver wires this morning...even Suisham would have made that kick last night.
* As bad as that playcall was at the end of the half, Romo and Ta-tard should have known better than to let it get that far. Tony should have went down after seeing nothing open and being pressured...Choice should have gone done immediately when he saw 25 Redskins surrounding him. Just stupidity all around, it was a play that pretty much defines this team's state of mind.
* Did Bruce Read become our special teams coach again last night? Are these guys just so used to not seeing a kickoff return that they forgot how to tackle? Maybe Watkins meant more to this unit than we thought, they were effing TERRIBLE!
* Eventhough the defense as a whole was solid, how do they lose Santana Moss so often on 3rd down. Are they ignoring him to double team Joey Galloway and (BJ?) Armstrong? The guy is their only respectable wide out, stick Newman on him all game and make someone else beat you! Their 3rd down zone coverages are the softest in the NFL.
* Hey Scandrick, when it is 4th and less than 5 yards on a FG attempt, you don't try to jump the effing snap count! Fortunately for you, the Skins holder did his best Romo 2006 playoffs impersonation and bailed you out. Still, another example of this team's stupidity.
As well as this defense played, I blame this loss on Wade. His defensive gameplan was fine but it was his training camp and preseason preparation that contributed to this team's low football IQ and willingness to make stupid penalties without the thought of being punished. Any real coach would have made head's roll with how poorly this team performed in the preseason yet all we get are excuses about how we didn't show our hand. I sure am glad we saved all the awesome plays for this game. Can't wait for Wade's press conference so I can hear about how we outscored Washington in the 2nd half and Barron graded out well minus the penalties...I know it is coming.
If the Cowboys play like this next week, Wade should be gone before the Houston game. Please Jerry, throw the money truck at Gruden, Cowher, Dungy...I'd even take Billick. EFF THIS TEAM!
mexicanjunior, very good post. You seem like a hardcore Cowboys fan. What are your thoughts on the following topics that are being hotly debated by Cowboy fans all over the world:
1. How many draft picks will the Patriots have to throw in along with Randy Moss for Dallas to let go of Tashard Choice?
2. What will Dez Bryant wear to his HOF acceptance speech? Will he mention his mother's sexual preferences?
3. Is Tony Romo being held back by his coaches? How many Super Bowls would he have if Jason Garrett was a half-decent OC?
4. Will ESPN revise the SportsCentury list of top 50 athletes of all time to include Miles Austin?
5. Should Jerry Jones take over as head coach? Should he also run for President and fix the economy as he wins a SuperBowl?
So it goes.
Sept 26 looks less and less hopeful for the cowgirls.
not sure if this should be in the "Sucks choad loads" thread or here. But who really cares.
Its fucking embarrassing to even admit Im a life long Cowboy fan after that game. Not sure why Im surprised. The way they handled the off season, and the way the team is coached, what the hell do you expect? Seriously, no reaction after that holding call. Im so numb to the stupidity of this team. So I'll watch, like a good little fucking fan, but my passion for this team is zero. I might watch just for the commentator bashing, and comic relief.
How many times in the last few years have you said, "Wow, how does a team recover from a lose like that?!" bottom line is you dont. With this years schedule, are you fucking kidding me?! We'll get out coached, out classed half the time, and beat ourselves the other half.
Cowboy fans, I have a question.
Would you of rather of NOT made playoffs(or even gotten a playoff win) last year, and had Jones fire the staff? And of had a new staff this season.
Because Wade/Garrett and Co. will never get it done.
the only thing stopping wade from getting fired is the talent level of that team. i guarantee you if they go 8-8 or worse he'll get fired, but that team has enough talent to probably win 10 games without a head coach, so who knows.
exactly just like last season i wouldnt say they won in the regular season in spite of him he is a very good defensive coach but as a head coach, a motivator and leader i just dont see it
