    In the end today we could not stop the run without run blitzing and eventually they made plays down the field on us. On offense we could not run the ball on the Cowboys front 7 so they never had to run blitz or just bring up the safeties. That eventually smothered our passing game. I can't say that was unexpected (why they were 13 point favorites) but still dissappointing.

    At this point we are 1-4 and about what I expected. Six wins is what I predicted this season and I think we are still on schedule.

    You're absolutely right...Sure we turned the ball over a few times, but people who understand football know the root cause of our offense being shutout was our lack of running game.

    Teams arent going to let Carr sit back and throw to Andre and Eric all day unless your force them to.
