The Dallas Cowboys season could be described as a roller coaster. They win a big game, take that New York Giants undefeated in Cowboys Stadium streak monkey off their backs in the opener. Then they lose to the Chiefs with an unbalanced offense and questionable play calling.
They respond by coming out with a balanced game that has them dominating the St. Louis Rams and scoring at will. Then they lose to the San Diego Chargers. The Cowboys can just never seem to get any consistent play together in back-to-back weeks.
“You want to be consistent that’s the whole thing,” cornerback Brandon Carr said, via ESPN Dallas. “I get tired of saying it, the whole roller coaster thing, it’s real and we still haven’t found an answer to it. But all you can do is come to work each day and prepare and get ready for the next opponent we’re going to face.”
The defense couldn’t keep Chargers quarterback Philip Rivers in check. He threw for 401 yards and three touchdowns as he led a second half comeback over the Cowboys, who were winning at the half.
“It makes your stomach hurt,” Carr said. “It gets your emotions and everything into it, it’s just not a good feeling. We have too many good ballplayers, good coaches, just overall a good program, a good organization and we should be winning these games. It’s tough to win on the road, but the good teams get the job done and we have to find a way to look within ourselves and get the job done.”
