The defense looked much better yesterday but either the league has figured out how to beat Kelly's offense or they have a serious problem with preparation this year.

Just looking at Peters and Kelce, both looked like other players yesterday. Mediocre, sloppy. Did they both suffer an inexplicable and sudden decline? These are two Pro Bowl players, if they were that far off what should we have expected from two journeyman guards? Kelce snapping before Bradford calls for the ball???

It seemed like on virtually every offensive play the Cowboys knew exactly what they were doing. Sweeps, wheels and screens were covered ... negative yards. Off tackle runs were blown up and the RB was smothered as soon as he got the ball ... not just one defender, gang tackled!

Sure, I'm a DKD but that doesn't sound like talent, that looks like execution and preparation. Average to bad OLs in the league do better than that. The defense was aggressive and made plays. They held a good offense (sans Dez, but still good) to two field goals in the first half despite being on the field constantly. This embarrassment was totally on offensive execution (pun intended) and that's Kelly the coach, not the GM!

Unfortunately, Jason Peters' better days are behind him. What was once the strongest part of our team is now the weakest, and to use an old but true cliche, it all starts up front.

The whole o-line definitely played a huge role in us not moving the ball, but we have to also have to lay other blame. Even when Bradford had time, it was often left with him checking down to the screen or missing open receivers. When Bradford did hit those receivers, it often ended in drops. I can understand when D plays deep you can't be chucking it down the field, but there wasn't any execution to move the ball downfield, even in the good chances we had.
