Tony Romo and his Dallas Cowboys lost a game they should have won on paper anyway. The Cowboys were completely out played by the Seahawks who down the Cowboys 27-7. The Cowboys defense could not stop Seattle from scoring and they gave up 182 yards rushing. The Seahawks completely man handed the Cowboys defensive line and it was Marshawn Lynch leading the way with his 122 yards and 1 touchdown.

Tony Romo never really got things going, he threw for 251 yards one touchdown and had one interception in the game. Romo was only sacked once. The Cowboys running game never really got going, DeMarco Murray only rushed for 44 yards on 12 carries, it was completely different than what we saw when the Cowboys beat the Giants.  Dallas has a habit of making the easy games on their schedule harder than they have to be. Losing to the Seahawks is one of those examples, Dallas was embarrassed by Seattle being held to only 7 points.

If the Cowboys are going to be contenders in the play offs this season they have to find a way to play consistent football. They should have been well rested coming into the game, they had almost 10 days off since their last game.

    Last week when everyone wrote a blank checque to the Cowboys for a victory (plus the points) against Seattle, didn’t I warn you that their tendency to turn potential cakewalks into death struggles should be taken into account??! Tony Romo’s struggles yesterday against the Seahawks are a microcosm of what’s wrong with this team. They run hot and cold in tight situations–just like their quarterback who (-on paper-)seems to have both the physical tools and the brains to do better than he has in games like this.

    I don’t know if complacency set in, (a real killer) or if the game plan was short sighted (why did Demarco Murray wind up with just 12 carries when you WANT ball control in a hostile environment like Seattle?) or what. All I know is that the Cowboys have fallen short in games they were supposedly a safe bet to win far too often for me to ever feel comfortable picking them when everyone else does. And unfortunately,Tony Romo’s brain farts have had a lot to do with that over the years since he was installed behind center…

      You certainly did say that….Lesson learned….I still thought it would be a closer game than what we saw….
