The Dallas Cowboys did not have a good night against the Chicago Bears. They kept on turning over the football through the air. Tony Romo threw five interceptions to undo a pretty impressive 72% completion percentage and over 300 passing yards. Dallas struggled to move the football on the ground and their passing defense get lit up by Bears quarterback Jay Cutler, who completed 75% of his passes and threw two touchdowns. But the Romo performance was probably the most distressing.
How do Cowboys fans feel about their loss to the Bears? Not so good, particularly considering the upcoming schedule is shaping up to be real tough to emerge at .500 through the midway point of the season. KD Drummond of Blogging the Boys files this report.
Again, the best part is that now everyone has two weeks to stew over this slopfest; this assault on fans' eyeballs everywhere. Well, everywhere except for Cowboys Stadium as the Bears seemed to be playing a home game with the raucous cheers that emerged throughout the game. With the performance of the team over the last couple seasons, it's no wonder that Cowboys Nation doesn't want to pony up to travel to Texas to watch this team in person. Why would they?
Of course, there is a standard line that I tote in these situations is that the season is far from over. Dallas sits at 2-2 but there is so much work to be done on this team that it's hard to remain positive. Looking at the post-bye schedule of at Ravens, at Panthers, vs Giants, at Atlanta and at Philadelphia... the soul-searching over the next two weeks will have to be Paranormal Activity-worthy in order to right this ship.
One Cowboys commenter was very dour, and looked right at the top at owner Jerry Jones as the cause for the team's struggles.
The stadium gives no home field advantage as the crowd never gets into ANY games. The players play like they’re priveleged, and the away team comes in pumped up. Money is more important than winning to Jerry. These Cowboys are mentally soft and it starts with how the organization is run.
Pretty dark times in Dallas after a tough performance on Monday night.
