Sure, the Dallas Cowboys won yesterday’s game with the Houston Texans.

Sure, the team is now a game out of first place as opposed to being a winless cellar dweller.

Sure, there’s still a chance they’ll rebound after the bye week, go on a tear, win their division, and become the first home team in NFL history to host a Super Bowl game.

But does anybody else remember the early part of the game?

The opening drive by the Cowboys seemed like another beginning to a long and infuriating afternoon.

The Cowboys offense was slapped with three penalties on their opening drive. Coach Wade Phillips was shown sputtering and bumbling on the sidelines.

The team seemed out of sync, just as it had since preseason began. Somebody needed to reboot this team.

Phillips wouldn’t even try a field goal from 47 yards out because the team’s kicker is better at tackling than kicking. They went for it on fourth down and didn’t make it. (Phillips says in this Star-Telegram article that he went for it on fourth down to be aggressive, not because he lacked faith in the kicker. I’m not sure I believe that, but I do agree it was time to be aggressive.)

Fortunately, outside linebacker DeMarcus Ware’s intensity and determination to win at all costs seemed to rub off on his teammates midway through the first half.  Say what you want about receiver Roy Williams catching two touchdowns, and kicker David Buehler hitting two long field goals, and the defense finally getting some takeaways — but this game belonged to Ware.

    Cowboys won a game! Now they’ll go 1-15 for the year. Tony Romo must go go.

    We need an offensive line and a real head coach. Wade is a defensive coordinator, nothing more. Romo is badass, his receivers need to learn their routes and catch the damn ball. He needs more then 2 seconds….when he gets it, like he did in H town…look what he does

    Our line is as good as other teams in the league and the coach is smarter than you think. Losing can always trace back to the QB and Tony RoMo Must GoGo has been losing and choking ever since he came here.
