A win is a win as the old axiom goes, but the Dallas Cowboys' 3-0 win over the Oakland Raiders Monday night wasn't much to get excited about. Cowboys head coach Jason Garrett expressed that lack of optimism, as BloggingTheBoys.com points out from the coach's postgame comments:
"Not real good,’’ Garrett said. "We didn’t play with great rhythm. We didn’t run it as well as we need to and didn’t drive it as well as we need to. I think the self-inflicted wounds were a part of that."
Optimists will say the defense was impressive, but Blogging The Boys also points out how the Oakland Raiders did their part to make the Cowboys' 'D' look even better, thanks to Carson Palmer and an errant deep pass that led to Gerald Sensabaugh's interception.
Still, the team's defensive star, DeMarcus Ware, was pleased with the effort.
"I felt like the first team did pretty good," Ware said. "There are always some things that we need to work on, but I think it was a good first half."
