PASSING OFFENSE: B-plus -- Quarterback Drew Bledsoe was on his game when it mattered most, passing for 363 yards and two touchdowns, including a 14-yard game winner to Keyshawn Johnson. Five receivers caught at least four passes. Jason Witten led the way with six for 85 yards. Terry Glenn caught five for 137 yards, and Johnson caught five for 74.
RUSHING OFFENSE: C-minus -- The Cowboys have yet to get Julius Jones
untracked. They rushed 95 yards on 32 carries as a team. Jones rushed 26
times for 85 yards. He had to play through a concussion after getting
knocked loopy in the first half.
PASS DEFENSE: D -- The Cowboys made Tim Rattay and Brandon Lloyd look
like Joe Montana and Jerry Rice. Rattay passed for three touchdowns, and
Lloyd caught four passes for 142 yards, including an 89-yard touchdown.
Consistent pressure is a problem, as is the Cowboys penchant for giving up
big plays. They have now given up eight pass plays of at least 20 yards in
the first three games.
RUSH DEFENSE: D -- The Cowboys couldn't contain running backs Kevin
Barlow or Frank Gore. They also had trouble with the scrambles of
quarterback Tim Rattay. The 49ers rushed 24 times for 124 yards as a team,
averaging 5.0 yards per carry.
SPECIAL TEAMS: C -- Deep snapper Jon Condo is starting to become a
problem. His bad snap cost the Cowboys an extra point. He dribbled two snaps
back to the punter. His inconsistency may soon cost them a game. Maybe Jeff
Robinson was worth extra money.
COACHING: C -- Last week the Cowboys lost a game they thought they should
have won. Things evened out with this lucky victory against the 49ers. Sure,
they showed character in coming from two scores down to win. They are also
thankful to head into next week's game against the Raiders 2-1 rather than
1-2. But they also showed that they have a lot of problems and a lot of work
