Welcome to The Dallas Cowboys Fan Network - join us it's free!

That's me in the picture with Tony Romo. We have participated in a few functions together since 2006 - he is a great guy and a good friend to The Dallas Cowboys Fan Network. You can get more detailed information on The Dallas Cowboys Fan Network and hear the story about how I got to know Tony Romo here

Wow - is Wade Phillips insane? Maybe he should read our blog here...

OK - hopefully you saw my blog post on Saturday about what we need to do to stop the Pats - come out in a pass defense - force them to run which attempts to nullify their biggest weapons. Play a 3-3-5 defense with tons of different coverages and try to let Sammy Morris beat you. You can play run defense on emotion anyway, blah, blah - it is all on record.

Well as it turns out - based on this article - Phillips strategy was the opposite - stop the run and make them throw on us. And, when asked about it he said he would do it again! Yes - you read that correctly...

Nate Jones - worse then even I thought...

Well after going through my review of the 1st quarter of the game it was even worse than I thought. Nate Jones was directly responsible for the first 2 3rd down conversions to open the game and the second TD pass.

On the first 3rd down conversion he played way too far off of Wes Welker and then fell down allowing him to pick up a 1st down on 3rd and 12

On another 3rd down conversion he got beat on a simple out route and never laid a hand on the WR to jam him at the line

Concerns about our defense and IMHO where we went wrong in the preseason...

OK - it may be time to be officially worried about our defense. If you want to make predications about the rest of the season just look at each teams offensive firepower - if they have a good offense we are probably in trouble.

Thank about this - we have shut down the likes of:

Miami
St. Louis (without Stephen Jackson)
Buffalo (without JP Losman, Peerless Price or 8 other starters)
Chicago (before the switch to Griese)

We have played 2 good offensive teams - the New York Giants and now the Patriots and we have been absolutely torched by both of them.

Game planning to stop New Englandś offense

First off - I keep hearing how we need to or are going to double cover Moss the whole game. I am hearing this from media (but not the coaching staff - they of course are saying nothing as they should).

I personally do not think this is a good idea. You can show him a few double coverage looks from time to time but I think a more effective technique is to put your best CB on him and just have him follow Moss all over the field. Play man coverage underneath and keep 2 safeties deep with those 2 being Watkins and Hamelin.

Thoughts about Buffalo...

Our man Romo struggled although maybe not as much as some think. The 5th interception was completely inexcusable but the others were not as bad. I always judge a QB by how he responds to this and whether or not the INT was a bad decision by forcing the ball, etc.

What makes the 5th pick so inexcusable was that if you watch the replays TO was wide open over the middle and Witten was stuck in cloud zone coverage on the right - and it was 1st down!!! No need to force the action...
