Blogger Blitz: Wake up, Cowboys offense
The offseason analysis of the Dallas Cowboys centered on the idea that the defense had to improve over last year and that the offense, if it could stay healthy and get at least respectable offensive line play, could be one of the best in the league. Well, through four games the defense has more than held up its end of the bargain. But not only has the offense failed to perform like one of the best in the league, it has instead been one of the worst.
This week's Blogger Blitz video looks at the fact that only two teams in the league -- the Eagles and Jaguars -- are averaging fewer points per game than the Cowboys and that their average in their last three games is only 13.7 points per game. Not even two touchdowns. Now, only 25 percent of the Cowboys' season is complete, and the schedule does appear as though it might ease out a bit in the second half of the season. And who knows? Maybe that offensive line can get to respectable yet. But this week's game in Baltimore, coming off the bye week, would be a good time for the Cowboys to show what they can do on offense for the first time since Week 1.
