The offense looks … I don’t really have the words for it, but it isn’t good.
When things were going relatively well offensively, during those first few games after the playcaller switch, the offense was picking up yardage in chunks. Receivers caught the ball on the move, and on the move in a downfield direction. The offensive line was opening up holes.
Now they all seem out-of-sync and overmatched. Every yard is a struggle. On that last drive, the team earned first downs via defensive holding, 3-yard gain on second-and-3, and QB sneak for 2 on third-and-1. There was no point where they moved the ball with anything like confidence. If this keeps up, it’s going to be a long night.
The defense isn’t lighting the world on fire, but they’re not replicating last week’s disastrous performance, either. Which is a huge disappointment to all the Cowboys fans here, and there are a lot of ‘em. It’s not like the Pittsburgh game, where it’s an obvious and overwhelming fan invasion, but when the Cowboys scored you could see it in the stands.
I really hope things pick up in the next quarter, because this has been tough to watch. Again.
