Like I said earlier Dez Bryant = Braylon Edwards

Too high on himself this year.

Dropping way too many balls.

Who knows what would have happened if he just brought that one down instead of it turning into a TD for Houston.

You can't put it all on dez man this is team sport. So the guy missed a few balls. There were tons of issues on both sides of the ball today.

On out of bounds plays, its now like getting a first down....the clock doesn't stay stopped until the ball is snapped, just until the ball is set.

Poor clock management on our part was the problem.

I think 7-5 is very realistic.

Same old cowboys. Its going to take Bill Y some more time.

I think we loose to both UT and UO at this stage. Maybe Tech and Baylor also if we dont get it together.

GuessI don't get what your saying. We were down 10, you have to go for 6 there. A lot easier to pick up the feild goal after onside kick with 30 sec left than go the legnth of the field and get a td.
You can kick a FG, and go for an onside kick...they don't have to go the length of the field and get a TD.

It was a dumb call. Down by 10 you need a FG and a TD...try for a TD and fail you don't have either.

I'm not putting it all on Dez...I'm just saying

It was a team lose, but other than a few flashes, through two games this is not the Dez of last year.

You have a lot more big money plays from distance than you do in the red zone.

Going to drink now. D will improve or we'll lose 3 more. That said, 1 loss isn't the end. We can still win the Big XII and go to a BCS bowl if not the MNC. It's not over.

At this point I don't even care about predicting the rest of the schedule. Let's take one game at a time, and nothing is a gimme, right? We aren't as good as we thought we were, so there.

No. If we were as good as we claim to be, then we would have had no trouble with a team like Houston. Not dissing them - they're good. But if we can't beat Houston, we certainly can't beat Texas or Florida.
While I certainly understand that argument, I don't think it is that simple. I think we might have benefited from an extra week to get ready for the very different styles of offense. Not to mention give a little more time for the offense to get clicking. Maybe it wouldn't have mattered in the end, just some wishful thinking.

How far do you think we fall?
Out of the top 15, and we should.

Correct. It's not all his fault, but for someone who was hoping to win awards this year, you'd think he'd learn to catch. He dropped catchable balls today and against Georgia.

I felt it was stupid that we ran the ball 3 times at the end with the clock running and wasted 25+seconds getting a play call after we ran out of bounds but we lost long before. The fumble killed us and the tip int was the nail in the coffin.
