Default Jerry Jones on Suicide Watch

Could this be a new Cowboys tradition?

Quote:
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.

See, this is what happens when you let the Aggies play at Jerryworld the day before the Cowboys have a home game. The curse hasn't found its way back to College Station yet...

Jerry, we know how you feel. It's not worth it man. You just have to realize your team sucks and go on with your Sunday. That's the best advice I can give you. There's more to your Sunday than football. JJJJEEEEERRRRRYYYYYY.......

D-TROIT ROCK CITY! I said at the end of last season that the Lions were better than their record indicated. They're the team to beat in the NFC this year.

They aren't even the team to beat in their own division.

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.

I'm surprised Jones hasn't had a stroke after Romo did that. I bet the ass-chewing was EPIC

Stafford to Johnson is a beastly combo. Stafford just throws it up and Johnson will go up and get it. That collapse was just epic. Up 27-3 in the third...

Pretty much any strong arm QB to Johnson is a beastly combo. But I do like Stafford!

Haha. I don't usually cheer when any team falls flat on its face, but I make an exception with the Cowboys (and to a lesser extent Sanchez and the Jets). The Cowpokes blowing a sure thing is just hilarious.
