Cowboys Watch: 6 Days

September 5th, 2022

Game week is here.

Joe is fired up!!

Tampa Bay faces the Cowboys on Sunday Night Football. So who will play left tackle for Dallas under the bright lights of Jerry’s World?

Yes, the Cowboys signed stud 40-year-old veteran Jason Peters today, but he won’t play against the Bucs while he works to get in football shape. So it appears rookie Tyler Smith will start at left tackle.

Joe’s not anti-rookie, except Smith spent all summer working at guard because veteran Dallas Pro Bowl left tackle Tyron Smith (no relation) was healthy before blowing out his knee.

So rookie Tyler Smith moving to left tackle is almost the equivalent of the Bucs hypothetically moving left guard Luke Goedeke to his left to replace Donovan Smith.

Yeah, Dallas has issues. Even Jerry Jones himself is talking about paying a steep price and cutting back the offense to account for a rookie left tackle with little practice time.

The Cowboys’ receiving corps is a shell of its 2021 self and running on the Bucs is like trying to stop Joe from ordering tater tots at Hooters.

Joe’s not seeing the Cowboys offense finding more than three touchdowns.

    Just win Baby, do not care how pretty or ugly, just win.

    GO BUCS!!!!!

  2. BucTooth Says:

    Just win baby lets go but not up the gut on first down to start our offense please.

  3. Chris Tucker@Apple Roof Cleaning Tampa Says:

    No way Tyron Smith, a Pro Bowler, can be replaced with a rookie w/o a drop off.
    But still, Dak Prescott is elusive.
    If we can protect Brady, he will carve Dallas up.

  4. John Sinclear Says:

    Three Cowboy TD’s is three too many!!

  5. Cobraboy Says:

    Stop the run, contain Prescott, and the Bucs will be fine.

  6. August 1976 Buc Says:

    I can hear Rod Munch now, he is calling BL from the press box for 3 runs just to start the game lol lol
    Lol we will see if BL actually does not run the ball on first down 5 times in a row to start the game lol. We have all seen that happen. lol, and if it does, Rod will be there to remind us lol
    But if in reality it equals a victory in Dallas, I do not care.
    I have watched a ton of losses since 1976, whatever.
    Just win.
    I do not care if it is Neanderthal, ground hog, ground and pound, or wing it 55 times, Run and Shoot, if it means they end up 1-0, fine.
    Pretty losses are still losses. and Ugly wins are still wins lol But Pretty wins are good and ugly losses are not lol

    GO BUCS!!!!!!

    Is it Football season already? What happened to summer?

  8. George Says:

    Until the Bucs get their own offensive line issues fixes, the outlook is grim.

  9. A Bucs Fan Says:

    My biggest concern is how much the refs will et the Boy’s line hold buc defenders to keep the game manageable.

  10. Dooley Says:

    Duo run plays are legit our bread & butter, and here y’all are critiquing it as if we haven’t had success with it they last 3 seasons LOL. Damn near every run play we run is based off the duo lock and it forces the defense to focus on the block, so that 4 yard run on 1st down, sets up a counter run off that the next drive or two quarters later when the play action is getting bit on, guess what gets those guys to cheat in the box? That’s right, the duo run. We run it out of the gun and from under center, and if you go back and watch a Fournette highlight real you’ll see do’s run out all types of personnel packages. Respectfully, shut up about it please and thanks.

  11. Goatfarmer Says:

    Bucs need to hold the Sowgirls to less than 20 points and the Bucs will win.

  12. August 1976 Buc Says:

    Ground and pound, wing it 55 times whatever just win. I have watched a ton of losses since 1976, so It does not matter to me what BL calls if it equals scoring enough to win the game.
    That was the heart of what was said. Respectully shut up about it ,please and thx.

    GO BUCS!!!

  13. Ontario Mike Says:

    Like most, I’m worried about the Oline and the time TB12 will have to go thru his progressions. Also unsure if Gage and / or Godwin will play. Would be nice if one of them could play along with Julio and Mike. TB12 could have a big day vs the Cowboys if that happens.

  14. Ben Says:

    The Bucs GM needed to improve the O line after all the injuries …and DID Nothing !

  15. Anon Says:

    Get ready for a likely penalty fest, the Cowboys led the league in penalties in both last year and the pre season.

  16. sasquatch Says:

    So, the tater tots at Hooters are good?

  17. AbucAway Says:

    Remember that one time Ol Lefty called a run up the middle on first down? Yeah me too.
    I’m betting he’ll do it again; game 1, first possession, first and 10. I’ll book it on fanduel (wonder what the odds are). Anyway, doesn’t matter. I like the matchup of JTS on a rookie tackle. It will be a good way for him to feast and gain confidence. Expect Devin to get tested regularly

  18. MonkeyMan Says:

    Julio Jones is going to be Brady’s new Randy Moss type weapon.

    Strap in boys, this is gonna be one hell of season.

  19. Goatfarmer Says:

    Maybe I should move to Dallas tomorrow.

  20. Lt. Dan Says:

    Dan hopes Joe is right.

  21. BillyBucco Says:

    I don’t think Smith blew out his knee did he?
    I thought I read his hamstring separated from the bone.

    He will be back in December, but not this game.
    Either way, the other Smith is a bigger topic than Goedeke and Hainsey.

  22. Armybucfan Says:

    Monkey man I pray your right. I would love to see the resurrection of the old Julio jones.

  23. BillyBucco Says:

    Speaking on stopping the run, did you guys hear Nacho talk about it while speaking of Suh and McClendon not being able to run to cover zone option runs to the border?
    I thought it was the most insightful nugget yet on why we scheduled practice against Miami and Tennessee, who both utilize different zone run heavy offenses.

    Nacho said you might not see it because the ones haven’t played that much, but that the Bucs are way more equipped this year with the addition of Hicks and Hall, to cover the border on runs.

    I think this team is on track to dominate, and the Cowboys won’t even win their Division.

  24. Bucsfan61 Says:

    I dont care how we do it..we just gotta beat them

  25. Jack Burton Mercer Says:

    Joe. You are fun, you’re cool, you’re a good writer…..but you are not as excited as me.
