Pretty Poor performance

The Governor's Cup goes to Houston this year. They just overpowered us and Houston no longer looks like an expansion team. Gary Kubiak even used some nifty play calling to put the game out of reach in the fourth quarter.

Other than a nice T.O. touchdown run, Dallas had a lackluster performance. A comeback was thwarted with a late fourth quarter touchdown and a Brad Johnson interception.

One thing that bothered me was Tony Romo fumbled a long snap when the Cowboys were driving in the first quarter, down 7-0. The fumble killed the drive that was in Houston territory.

Here's a snipped from the Dallas Morning News about the pressing problem at cornerback:

Aaron Glenn said he thinks the Cowboys have a good group of cornerbacks. Wade Phillips disagreed after watching Glenn, Jacques Reeves and Alan Ball get beat for touchdowns tonight.

"We played a lot [of guys] at corner to see who would do something," Phillips said, "and we didn't see anything."

Phillips said this week that he was concerned about the lack of quality depth at cornerback. Consider it a huge problem if Terence Newman's plantar faciitis doesn't get better.

The Cowboys attempted to address the issue earlier this month. They inquired about trading for Dante Wesley, but the Bears opted to send him to New England for a conditional seventh-rounder.
Oh golly. If I weren't worried enough, this hurts.
