Mistakes, missed opportunities in critical situations allow ‘what-ifs?’ to linger after loss

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. — Throughout training camp, Dallas Cowboys coach Jason Garrett preached the importance of situational football.

He showed his team highlights of some of the most famous drives in NFL history, from John Elway’s in the 1986 AFC Championship Game to Bart Starr’s dive in the Ice Bowl to the New York Giants’ win in Super Bowl XLII that ended the New England Patriots’ run at a perfect season.

AP Photo/Henny Ray Abrams – Jason Garrett preaches poise to his Cowboys, but it was Rex Ryan’s Jets who capitalized on opportunities.

The point wasn’t to show the game-clinching plays but the plays that led to the game-clinching play, like a fourth-down conversion, a second-effort block or even a simple blitz pickup.

 

Garrett wanted the players to see that every play mattered.

For more than three quarters Sunday against the New York Jets, Garrett’s script was followed perfectly as the Cowboys held a 14-point lead — but then it fell apart before Nick Folk’s game-winning field goal with 27 seconds left.

 

“We didn’t handle the situation at the end of the ballgame well,” Garrett said, his voice scratchy after the 27-24 defeat. “We did things that teams that know how to win games don’t do.”

 

Tony Romo fumbled at the Jets’ 3 on third-and-goal with the Cowboys leading by a touchdown. While the Cowboys’ defense forced a fumble, Dallas’ next drive ended with Isaiah Trufant returning a blocked Mat McBriar punt for a game-tying score. On the next drive, the Cowboys could not convert a third-and-1.

 

Then came Darrelle Revis’ crushing interception of an underthrown Romo pass to Dez Bryant, giving Folk, the ex-Cowboy, the chance for a game-winner.

 

“We made some critical mistakes at the end there that put them in a good situation,” tight end Jason Witten said. “We felt like we had the momentum most of the game. We were playing well, moving it, stopping them on defense. It was a total team effort with guys fighting.”

The Cowboys were left with so many what-ifs.

What if Witten hadn’t been pushed out at the New York 3 by safety Jim Leonhard?

What if they hadn’t had back-to-back penalties that turned a third-and-12 into a third-and-22? The Jets would not have been as compelled to come after McBriar for a punt block from the Jets 49 without the delay-of-game and false-start penalties.

What if Bart Scott hadn’t filled the hole on Tashard Choice’s third-and-1 carry that left the Cowboys short of a first down from the 41? If they’d converted there, the Cowboys could have continued their way down the field and probably put rookie kicker Dan Bailey in position to win the game with a field goal.

After Romo’s interception, what if Alan Ball had been able to hold on to a Mark Sanchez pass to Derrick Masonfor an interception with 37 seconds to play? If he had, then the game probably would have headed into overtime.

 

Garrett and Jerry Jones took hope even from the disappointment.

“This team showed me it will win a lot of ballgames this year,” Jones said. “We will win a lot of ballgames because of the kind of effort we made.”

With a win, those aches and pains — some major, some minor — would not have felt so bad. Winning is the best medicine.

Garrett could have pointed out how the team overcame playing without its top three cornerbacks for stretches of the game, how a young offensive line handled a complex Jets’ defense and how they took down one of the Super Bowl favorites from the AFC to start the season.

Dallas Cowboys milestones and notes

Here are notes and milestones after tonight’s game:

The Dallas Cowboys opened tonight’s game starting two rookies on the  offensive line – RT Tyron Smith and LG Bill Nagy. It was the first time in  franchise history a Cowboys team started two rookies on the offensive line in  the season opener. The duo also became the seventh and eighth rookie linemen to  ever start in a season opener for Dallas, and it was the first time a rookie  lineman started for Dallas since Rob Petitti opened the season at right tackle in  2005. Overall, Smith and Nagy are the 38th and 39th  rookies to start a season opener for Dallas.

In addition to Billy Nagy and Tyron Smith, Alex Albright, Dan Bailey, Dwayne  Harris and DeMarco Murray all made their NFL debut  tonight.

Miles Austin’s touchdown catch tonight upped his career  total to 22 and tied Jay Novacek for 12th in team history.

Dan Bailey made his NFL debut tonight and hit his first  career field goal – a 34-yarder in the first half.

After rushing 17 times tonight, Felix Jones has 348 career  rushing attempts to pass Timmy Newsome (340) for 15th in team  history.

Sean Leeintercepted his third career pass tonight. He  returned it 37 yards to the N.Y. Jets one-yard line. His three interception  returns have netted 81 yards and a touchdown.

Danny McCray had his first career sack tonight with a fourth  quarter sack/forced fumble.McCray was also credited with a fumble recovery on  the play, his first career fumble recovery.

Tony Romo’s first quarter touchdown pass to Dez Bryant  extended his streak of consecutive games with a touchdown pass to 19 to add to  his club record.

Romo’s 342 passing yards tonight improved his club record of  career 300-yard games to 27. It was the seventh-most passing yards in a game in  his career.

With his two sacks tonight, DeMarcus Ware has registered a  sack in four straight games – his sixth career streak of sacks in four-or-more  games.

Ware logged his second sack of the game in the second  quarter to mark his 18th career multi-sack game. He still holds the  third-most multi-sack games in team history behind Greg Ellis and Jim Jeffcoat’s  19 each.

Jason Witten upped his career receiving yards total to 7,077  yards, making him the fifth Dallas Cowboy to reach 7,000 career receiving yards.  He is the seventh tight end in league history to reach the 7,000-yard mark:

Dallas Cowboys Mat McBriar on punt block: ‘It was definitely shocking’

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. — Mat McBriar wanted to accept blame for one of the plays that contributed to the Cowboys’ fourth-quarter collapse in their 27-24 loss to the New York Jets. But there was little he could do. With five minutes, eight seconds left in the game, a punt by McBriar was blocked by Joe McKnight and recovered by Isaiah Trufant, who returned the ball 18 yards for a touchdown.

“It was definitely shocking,” McBriar said. We knew they were going to bring some heat. You feel responsible in a way for the way things turned out.

The touchdown by Trufant, who was added to Jets’ active roster Saturday, changed the complexion of the game as the Jets tied the score at 24.

“It left a sour taste in your mouth,” McBriar said. “That’s for sure…It was a great play they made. It was disappointing for us.”

TBAB COMMENT: If McBriar was able to get the kick off … NYJ pinned somewhere near their 10 yard line … leaving a time-consuming task of marching 90 yards to score. Instead, the block leads to a quick-six and Dallas receives a kickoff as a result. The play turned the field position around … Dallas gives up six and ends up 80 yards away on the other side of the field.

Dallas Cowboys silver lining: Fewer Penalties

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. – Last year, during the Cowboys’ 13-7 loss to Washington in their season opener, the Cowboys committed a series of mistakes. The final one was a holding call on tackle Alex Barron that negated a touchdown pass that would have tied the score at the end of regulation.

It was the Cowboys’ 12th penalty of the night, when they were docked 81 yards for the infractions. It would be a sign of things to come. Last year, the Cowboys collected 109 penalties, the sixth-highest total in the league. Flash forward to Sunday and the Cowboys were assessed only seven penalties that cost them 40 yards in their 27-24 loss to the Jets.

In training camp, Cowboys coach Jason Garrett tried to create a culture of compliance during training camp, when officials were regulars at the team’s workouts. It appeared to pay off Sunday when the Cowboys avoided the wrath of the men in stripes.

TBAB note: Yes, the Cowboys showed improved discipline with only 7 for 40. Especially impressive with inexperienced OL and a team using a new defensive scheme. It should be noted that the NYJ had zero penalties … for zero yards.

 

Did the Dallas Cowboys make the right call by not challenging Romo’s fumble in the fourth quarter?

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. — The Cowboys’ first major mistake of the fourth quarter came when quarterback Tony Romo fumbled the football at the 3-yard line while trying to run into the end zone on third-and-goal with about 9 minutes to play in the game.

Romo was hit from the side by New York Jets defensive end Mike DeVito while running up the middle, and defensive tackle Sione Pouha recovered the fumble. Replays, however, appeared to show that Romo’s knee was down before he fumbled the football. In the end, the Cowboys decided not to challenge the call, possibly costing them a field goal attempt in a three-point loss.

Cowboys coach Jason Garrett said he considered challenging the call.

“We were just trying to get our own information from upstairs,” Garrett said. “[We were] just trying to get the best look at it that we can and then make the right decision. Obviously, timeouts are critical at the end of the ballgames. You don’t want to be frivolous with that challenge. If it was close, we definitely would have challenged it, but our guys upstairs said they felt like the ball came out.”

Dallas Cowboys youth shows, but OL battled

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. – The Cowboys knew growing pains would accompany three first-year starting offensive linemen this season, particularly in the opener against a complex Jets defense.

That proved true in Sunday’s 27-24 loss. The young trio of Phil Costa and rookies Tyron Smith and Bill Nagy battled all night, but offensive line coach Hudson Houck will likely point to a share of mistakes among the entire line this week.

Quarterback Tony Romo was sacked four times and hit at least that many times. One sack could be attributed to veteran right guard Kyle Kosier, who appeared to get beat by the Jets’ Bart Scott.

The biggest issue, Houck said, was the running game’s inconsistency. The Cowboys gained only 64 yards on 26 carries (2.5 avg.), and the longest gain was Kevin Ogletree’s 7-yard end-around.

“They did a nice job of taking it away with a lot of Bear defense which was kind of overloaded to the run,” said Houck, also the offense’s run game coordinator. “That’s just kind of what their style is.”

Houck said the Jets’ nickel pass rush hurt the line early, but they recovered as the game wore on.

“Just the idea that the guys kept playing and kept fighting and some of the young guys I didn’t think it was too big for them,” he said. “They knew what was going on out there and they shared the information, whether it was good or bad. At least they knew what was happening.”

Said head coach Jason Garrett: “It’s a very good defense with a lot of looks in base and their nickel defense. They challenge you in a lot of ways, physically first, and then with their looks. I thought for the most part our guys handled it pretty well.”

Also Smith, the club’s first-round draft pick, appeared to finish the game without any setbacks after hyper-extending his right knee on Wednesday.

“Just took it day by day and saw how it felt,” he said. “It was ready by game day so they put me out there.”

Dallas Cowboys ‘D’ Looks Better, Even Shorthanded

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. – Rob Ryan had just six weeks to teach his complex defense, with a target date of Sunday. Though the Cowboys lost to the Jets, there was actually plenty to be encouraged about.

Take away the blocked punt score, and the Cowboys gave up 20 points to New York, three of which came on Nick Folk’s game-winning field goal.

There were plenty of signs of improvement for the defense, though – as compared to both the Wade Phillips/Paul Pasqualoni-coordinated unit of 2010, and this year’s preseason, when the Cowboys struggled to stop the run and allowed several long scoring drives.

Most encouraging was the success against New York’s ground game, which mustered only 45 yards on 16 rushes, with no carry longer than seven yards. Typically a team committed to pounding the ball, the Jets were forced to abandon the run, putting the game in the hands of Mark Sanchez, just as the Cowboys would’ve hoped.

Though Sanchez led just two touchdown drives, he still was able to rack up 335 yards, though on 44 attempts. The Cowboys did sack him four times, and Sean Lee intercepted a pass and returned it down to the goal line to set up a Felix Jones touchdown run.

All the defensive silver linings came despite being incredibly shorthanded at cornerback. Terence Newman was out with a groin injury, Orlando Scandrick was lost to a sprained ankle early on and Mike Jenkins was in and out with apparent reaggravations of the stinger he suffered at the beginning of training camp. For important stretches of the game, the position was manned by fourth- and fifth-corners Alan Ball and Bryan McCann, along with safety Barry Church, forced to play out of position.

Another young safety, Danny McCray, made a potentially game-altering sack and strip of Sanchez in the fourth quarter. On crucial downs, the Cowboys’ only starters on the field at defensive back were safeties Gerald Sensabaugh and Abram Elam, each of whom was forced to miss the first week of training camp and Ryan’s defensive installation as an unrestricted free agent.

“My hats off to Barry and Danny, they came in and played well,” Elam said. “With limited practice reps they stepped in and helped us . . . You just have to communicate, and make sure everybody’s on the same page. We’re all in the meeting room together, we all communicate, so guys are accountable.”

Elam wasn’t around in 2010, but he mentioned a couple things that were missing for the defense last year – accountability and communication. Perhaps we’re seeing Ryan is imparting those traits onto the unit, though the solid effort Sunday was no consolation for the new defensive coordinator, who lost a face-off with is brother, Jets coach Rex Ryan.

“You’re going to have a hard time doing anything when you don’t have anybody playing their natural position,” Rob Ryan said. “But hey, it happens. That’s why you’ve got to win, so it doesn’t matter.”

Injury Update: Scandrick and Dez

Dallas’ wild loss to the Jets looked even worse in the locker room after the game when injury news came out.

Starting cornerback Orlando Scandrick will miss 3-4 weeks with an ankle injury.

“We didn’t get a good enough shot on the X-ray,” owner Jerry Jones said via ESPNDallas.com. “It’s a high ankle. It’s a fracture. It’s something like that. Three or four weeks is what the doctors told me.”

The Cowboys were already thin at cornerback with Terence Newman hurt.  Mike Jenkins was in and out of the lineup on Sunday night.

Meanwhile, wide receiver Dez Bryant was slowed in the second half because of a bruised quad suffered on a punt return.  Jones wasn’t happy about how Bryant was hurt after the game.

“I’m just saying he’s getting hurt on returns,” Jones said. “He got knocked out last year and got limited in this game on a punt return.”

Bryant is clearly a sensational talent, but he still has to show he is durable. He said he enjoys being on returns.

“I love doing it,” said Bryant. “I just feel like things happen. I love it a lot. I feel like any moment, I can make a big splash on it. But, hey, it’s whatever Mr. Jones wants. If he don’t want me doing it, it’d be sad. I would love to continue doing it, but hey, he makes the calls.”

EXCLUSIVE: The Great Robbini’s BOLD predictions for DAL@NYJ

  • Romo rushes for 28 yards (Romo rushed for 9 yards on 3 carries)
  • Couple of good ST returns = great DAL field position (longest return 16 yds, averaged 10 yds/per return)
  • 3 DAL sacks on Dirty Sanchez, + 1 forced fumble + 1 interception (4 DAL sacks, 2 FF-1 lost, 1 INT)
  • DAL will have a 50+ ST punt/kickoff return  (5 punt/KO returns totalled 50 yards)
  • Romo will be sacked 7 times throughout game (Romo sacked 4 times, 1 fumble … faired pretty well)
  • Romo will have no interceptions (Romo had an INT at a critical time)
  • FJones will rush for 100+ yards (44 yds on 17 carries … 2.6 yards per carry)
  • Witten will have 2 TD’s (I agreed with this. Witten was a big factor blocking + had 110 yds receiving)
  • No major DAL injuries … Austin, 1 RB, minor OL dings (Fortunately, OL/RB/Austin survived; CBs hurt)
  • Rex Ryan will be fat (Spot on!)

Well, while it was a valiant effort … Robbie was off the mark with (most) of his gameday predictions. We’ll have to see if Robbie retires from the prediction business … or if he steps it up for the next game! haha

DAL @ NYJ Full Play-by-Play

Dallas lost by three points. Look at the game play-by-play below and see how many lost opportunities you can find. Sure, Romo made mistakes in the final five minutes … he was trying to make plays to win the game. Romo also made key plays in the first 55 minutes that kept Dallas very much in this game! On an interception, the blame sometimes goes to the intended receiver … or exceptional heads-up play from a defender. Romo will publically take the blame, but there are cases when the receiver is simply not where they are expected to be! I contend that all of the blame doesn’t fall on Romo. Who’s responsible for the loss? Romo? Hobbled Dallas secondary? Dallas’ new OL? Dallas’ special teams that allowed the NYJ blocked punt and subsequent NYJ game-tying touchdown? The fact that the NYJ made the plays it needed to secure the win? NYJ pressure defense? Dallas kneeling near the end of the first half? Dallas penalties, particularly in the 4th quarter? Dez playing hurt in the 2nd half … especially the 4th quarter? NYJ homefield advantage (crowd noise)? Too many Dallas blitzes? Not enough blitzes? Dallas 26 carries for only 64 yards rushing? NYJ only allowing 64 yards rushing? Other?
