Dallas Cowboys, One Down and 18 To Go

Well, it is time for football season. The Dallas Cowboys opened its season against the Cleveland Browns. Both teams really have something to prove. The Dallas Cowboys and the Cleveland Browns ended their season last year– by laying an egg.

Dallas Cowboys took their opening drive and ran 10 plays. They traveled 80 yards. They ended the drive with a Marion Barber touchdown. The Cowboys defense that allowed a 16-play drive, which took approximately nine minutes and ended in a Cleveland Browns touchdown. The Cowboys had the ball three more times in half and scored twice. Both scores were touchdowns. At halftime score was 21 to seven. The game was practically over by this point.

A few comments — the Cowboys pass defense continues to suspect. They had periods of brilliance with Anthony Henry and Kevin Hamlin playing well. Then there were other times when Derek Anderson seem to be hitting receivers that will. On the opposite side of the ball, Tony Romo looked sharp. Patrick Clayton and Terrell Owens looked very good. Jason Witten was open all day. Marion Barber continues to run extremely hard. Felix Jones was outstanding. I am hoping that he would be a pleasant surprise.

Next Monday night the Cowboys take on the Philadelphia Eagles in Texas Stadium. This will be a huge game.

(For some reason, I can’t upload video. Hopefully, I’ll get that fixed soon.)
