Cowboys offensive line picks up the pace despite loss to Redskins

On an afternoon when the Cowboys’ realistic playoff hopes took a huge hit, the team’s beleaguered offensive line actually stepped up with one of its better performances. The team’s patchwork offensive line, which included Jermey Parnell staring at left tackle for Tyron Smith, allowed only two sacks in Thursday’s 38-31 loss to the Washington Redskins.

The same group allowed seven sacks – most ever in a game played by Cowboys’ quarterback Tony Romo -- and multiple other knockdowns in last week’s 23-20 victory over Cleveland.

The Cowboys (5-6) struggled to run against the Redskins (11 carries, 35 yards). But Dallas finished with 458 net yards of offense.

“I did not think (offensive line) was our problem today,” Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said. “And I frankly thought defensively that I don’t know how to game plan any better. (Redskins QB Robert Griffin III) just made the plays and his receivers made the plays.”

After the game, Jones said he singled out Parnell and center Mackenzy Bernadeau for post-game praise.

GM/Marketing Man Crocodile Face is only interested in selling PROPAGANDA. Last week the "defence" made Newtown QB Weeden look quite good better than in most other games. Now Chicken Legs Griffin and his gang were just too precise. BS!!! The ENTIRE JONES COACHED TEAM WAS HOPELESS. Garcon had not played for 4 weeks or so and has an injury like that of the INVISIBLE MAN DEMARCO MURRAY. Yet Garcon goes 100 yds to score. Watch next game. I bet that the G-Men will return Chicken Legs & his group to loser status. Where was Chicken Legs & his group when they lost to low teams such as Carolina and The Rams??? Where was he then? In no mans land, that's where.
