Isn't this known as making adjustments? That said, I have always wondered why coaching staffs need to wait until half time to make such adjustments

Awesome game. I don't think anyone could have beat the Cowboys today. The Seahawks were very lucky they only lost by 7 considering the turnovers.

Yep, they dominated both sides of the ball and it would have been a much more lop-sided score except for the special team faux paws. The 12th man did show up, but it really didn't matter.

We have waited a long time to see our team play with that kind of heart. I don't think anyone expected to be 5-1 at this point, except for Jerry Jones, but he expects them to win the super bowl every year:face palm: I hope they can avoid key injuries and keep the momentum going for a while.

When your team's strength is a run blocking offensive line and a great running back....you run the ball. Apparently after several years, Jason Garrett finally realized that.

Unfortunately before this year, the OL was still not all that good at run or pass blocking. However, even with that, the Cowboys were way too unbalanced in favor of passing too much. IMO, I put some of that blame on Romo, who would audible off run plays, thinking he could turn every play into a miraculous pass completion.

Keep the ball out of Romo's hands. Looks like a good winning formula

Im stunned that the Bears defense held the Atlanta offense to 13 points - especially starting 3 backup linebackers. The game was definitely won by the D line.

Ouch! The Cowboys were simply the better team. Russell wasn't as bad as some say (like wide receiver Doug Baldwin said out of frustration, before he back-tracked a bit and placed blame on the entire offense). His passes were usually spot on, but the Dallas pass defense was superb.

There are a lot more games to be played this season.

But now, I'm thinking the Bears are ready to take on the Packers.

As the saying goes, "Any given Sunday" (or Monday, or Thursday)
Hope you are correct but Packers pretty much have had the Bears number the last few years. Thought I saw somewhere that a Cutler led Bears team has beaten the Pack a grand total of once.

How about The PATS? Just about when people were criticizing them for being old and washed up they dominated their last two games against quality opponents. Brady has shown that he is still one of the best in the game.

Bitter sweet win.... They lost their defensive captain (Mayo) and their number one running back (Ridley)
