RUSH OFFENSE: F -- Never mind Julius Jones' 59-yard run in the second half - he is still running on empty. He finished with 79 yards. The ground attack produced little when the game was still a game. Once the blowout was on, a big run against a team playing pass defense was meaningless.
PASS OFFENSE: F -- The offensive line was horrendous, allowing a
season-high seven sacks. Quarterback Drew Bledsoe cracked under the constant
pressure, throwing three interceptions and losing a fumble.
RUSH DEFENSE: F -- The Cowboys were run over and run down again. For the
third straight week, they allowed a 100-yard rusher as Clinton Portis
followed Tiki Barber of the Giants and Larry Johnson of the Chiefs to
trample the Cowboys on the ground.
PASS DEFENSE: F -- The Cowboys did not have a sack in a game for the
first time all year. And the coverage was even worse. Redskins tight end
Chris Cooley caught three touchdown passes and the Cowboys still haven't
caught up with receiver Santana Moss, who again burned them deep.
SPECIAL TEAMS: F -- Punter Matt McBriar may be looking for a job after
unleashing punts of 24 and 15 yards against Redskins. The same might go for
kicker Billy Cundiff, who missed a 38-yard field goal. Deep snapper L.P.
Ladouceur is also in that mix with a poor snap on the field goal.
OVERALL: F -- To play this badly in game with playoff implications is
inexcusable. Once 7-3, the Cowboys have lost three of the last four and on
the brink of playoff elimination.
