Could this be a new Cowboys tradition?

Rapid Reaction: Lions 34, Cowboys 30 (http://espn.go.com/blog/nfceast/post/_/id/31158/page/rapidreaction/rapid-reaction-lions-34-cowboys-30)
October, 2, 2011
By Calvin Watkins

ARLINGTON, Texas -- The Cowboys blew a 24-point lead, the second time this season a double-digit second half lead was blown resulting in a loss. Detroit 34, Dallas 30.

What it means: The Cowboys head into the bye at 2-2 and missed a chance to take momentum into the game against New England in two weeks. It was a bad loss, possibly worse than the Week 1 loss to the New York Jets. The Cowboys were booed when they walked off the field. This was terrible.

Romo's screwups: Tony Romo's three second-half interceptions led to three touchdowns for the Detroit Lions. The last turnover was on a pass to Jason Witten that came with 4:13 to play in regulation, and the Lions took the lead on the ensuing drive. In the Week 1 loss to the New York Jets, Romo committed two turnovers in the fourth quarter. You can't have that if you're trying to be an elite quarterback.

Johnson's day: He didn't have a catch in the first quarter, but as the game picked up, Calvin Johnson turned into Megatron. Johnson finished with eight catches for 96 yards and two touchdowns, including the go-ahead score with 1:49 to play. The Cowboys' secondary struggled to cover him in man and zone coverage. The last score was a jump ball over Terence Newman. Rob Ryan said Dez Bryant and Miles Austin were better and Jason Garrett said Johnson was the best player in the NFL. Looks like Garrett may have been right.

Where'd Dez go? After catching three passes, including two for touchdowns, in the first half, Dez Bryant was shut out in the second half. Bryant played with a bruised thigh but still was effective, catching touchdown passes of 25 and 6 yards. But with the Cowboys turning the ball over and running the ball, it made Bryant ineffective on the day.

What's next?: A bye. The Cowboys take four days off and will get ready for a trip to New England in two weeks.

You seen them much this season?

I picked up Stafford and C. Johnson in my FF team this year, thinking that they'd put up good numbers, but fall short as a team - but their performances have been pretty damn impressive. Their D line is looking fierce, and their offense is looking much more experienced than it is.

I think next week is going to be a big test for them - the Bears should play tougher than the other teams the Lions have faced - but at this moment in time, I'd take a match up with GB over the Lions. The Lions have the kind of upside the Texans had a couple of years ago, but with a much less volatile defense - an All-Pro wide out who can make plays out of nothing, a strong up and coming at QB, and league wide skepticism about the ability of the team to get it done.

And the Texans beat just beat the guys who they played in the Superbowl a few months back and last week lost to the guys who WON it the year before. 2010 might as well be 1972 in the NFL. Free agency means a team can go from the cellar to the penthouse in a season and vice versa. No ones won back to back titles in a minute so I'll stand by my original statement. Greenbay this season has three HOME wins and one on the road. Detroit has ONE home win and THREE on the road. You won in YOUR stadium in front of YOUR fans under optimal conditions. BFD. I hate to get all "Horton the elephant" here, but "I meant what I said...and I said what I meant."

P.S. If Rashid (I-can't-seem-to-hold-on-to-the-ball) Mendenhall did his JOB and simply held on to a vuggin' football The AFC would have REGAINED bragging rights.

Well there is a big diff between the Pack and the Steelers. The Steelers have not looked as good as the Pack who have pretty much made easy work of all of the teams they played.

All I'm saying is if the Lions get 20+ down on the Packers. They aren't coming back to win it. Rodgers is a different animal than the QBs they've played thus far.

Oh, what a weekend!

Willowridge - underdog and win (check)
Hightower - toss up and win (check)
Prairie View - underdog and win (check)
Texans - favored in my opinion and win (check)
Cowboys - should have won by a landslide but no loss due to getting handed a loss by the best team, but gave it away (check)

IMO, if Romo was consistent and play a disciplined game, we could be looking at 4-0. Also, IMO, still a good team, but unless we play as though our lives depended on that win, then another mediocre year. Truthfully, until we get consistent and play like a team with the eyes on the prize, then we deserve every loss we get. Not very happy now, but love em just the same! BTW, Romo should be able to come up with a better way of saying thanks to Carpenter for being one of his groomsmen.

I doubt it but having said that it is pretty bad when two hall of fame players from your team (who still live in Dallas) think your time is done. Deion and Irvin both said Romo was great for stats but wasn't a winner and the Cowboys needed someone new. Aikman (the anti-Romo - no gaudy stats but clutch player) will probably be more diplomatic when someone inevitably sticks a mike in front of him.

I like Detroit, but the delusions of crowning them ahead of the defending Super Bowl champions is a bit much. Let's see how those two face-to-face matchups work out, much less the rest of the season, before handing them the kingdom.

As far as the Cowboys...yikes! Horrible way to lose a game.

Hey Romo had a hellava day, five Tds, so what if 2 of those were to the Lions.:vincepalm:

In all seriousness, he threw the ball 47 times. They go into the 3rd Qtr with a 24 point lead, go into the 4th with a 13 pt lead.

It's easy to blame Romo, but if that were Houston, there'd be pink soap every where.

Where was the running game?

Where was the defense?

Where was the play-calling?

Deione started good last night, he took Romo's words, "ok you knew what the problem was after the Jets game, you know what the problem is after this game.... it's the same problem."

I thought he was going to go into, "Why do we keep putting him in this situation?" The game should have been over at half-time, that defense (#4 I think it total yards right now) should have been able to do something.

We blame Kubiak for being too conservative in the 4th Qtr, but If I were a Dallas fan, 3 yards & a cloud of dust sure sounds like a better option than having Romo gunslinging it around the stadium.

Punt that ball & let your defense win you that game.

Where was the running game? they have no running game; hence Romo chunking it 47 times

Where was the defense? there's only so much you can do, great players make plays & on those 2 calvin johnson TD's the coverage was there, he just made a great play.

Where was the play-calling? I don't care what kind of play is called, 2 of those 3 ints romo threw were terrible. 1 he just threw up to witten, the other i nor deion could tell u what the hell he saw..just god awful decisions.

I know Romo's decision making is part of the problem. Imagine you are the HC of the Dallas Cowboys & Romo is your best option.

Do you keep putting him in that situation? What I'm saying is I'll take the cloud of dust & punt option before I keep putting the ball in Romo's hand when the game is on the line. This was a perfect situation, without blessing them with good field position, the Lions' great players weren't doing a whole lot.

Punt that ball & put it in the hand of your D. If they score 34 points after starting from the 20 every possession in a half.... I'll take that loss & feel good about it.

But to March Romo out there throwing the ball, "being aggressive" You can blame Romo all you want, but if you hadn't figured out who he is by now, it's time to stop blaming Romo & time to look in the mirror.

In summary, Romo is the problem..... why do you keep putting the game in his hands?

Yep, the Packers Oline is better than the Steelers...the Packers are a better team than the Steelers as was proven earlier this year. So what about the Road games? You have to win those too, and the Steelers had problems beating a Manningless Colts team.

As for the NFC QBs being overrated...you seriously are not saying Rodgers is overrated? Have you seen him play? I don't see how anyone can say he's 'overrated'

There is something to be said about the Lions inability to start off games strong. I'm not hating on them or whatever, but if they get down to the likes of the Saints or Packers they aren't coming back. Remember the Texans problems for starting off games poorly?

It's one thing to come back against the Vikings and Cowboys and another entirely to come back against the Saints and Packers.

That strategy could work for 1/2 a quarter tops & that's if you're far enough ahead. but there's no way you could do that against a competent team for a 1/2 of a game which is about when he started feeling that little itch in his throat & the choking began.

No doubt Garrett could've done a better job of controlling Romo's attempts but had they taken that approach & still lost, people would've been saying what our fans say about the texans offense at now.....i.e.

You think Rodgers and Brees are overrated? I think Rodgers may be the best QB in the NFL for the next few years. And I recently saw (to my discomfort) what Brees did to the Texans.

What you say about the O-line is true, but when has a pocket quarterback considered "elite" NOT had an above average O-line? Aikman may be the most overrated QB of all time, a "good" QB turned enshrined in Canton because of Emmitt Smith, Michael Irvin and possibly the best O-line in the history of the NFL.

Ws & Ls that's all that matters. They can cry in their milk all they want, but they'll have their butts in their seats come play-off time.

They could be 4-0 if they scaled it back a little bit. Start throwing screens, running draws, put Jon Kitna in with a big half-time lead.... & just manage the game.
