The first six quarters of football this year were fine for the Cowboys defense.
The last two? They looked the product of last year’s up and down defense, linebacker Sean Lee said.
“I think last year it was,” he said Wednesday, asked if defensive inconsistency is a problem right now. “If we’re talking about the first game and a half, it wasn’t. From a defensive standpoint, we were inconsistent in the second half. That’s going to lose games.”
He said film study made it clear something changed for the Cowboys in the second half against Seattle.
“If you look from the first half to the second half, the first half, everybody was on point, everybody was doing their job every single play,” he said. “The second half, I don’t think we executed. If someone makes a mistake here, if we don’t fix something there, it led to big plays. It just shows you against a good running back, you have to be on point the entire game, and I dont think that’s something we did the second half.”
