Up until that Evans touchdown, I was calling for a benching yesterday. J.P. looked awful. Even the TD was a terrible pass (he was so open, Kelly Holcomb couldn't miss). Too many underthrown balls, too many sacks. I don't care how bad the line is, you gotta get rid of it. This song and dance is getting old.
It makes it more difficult to defend this guy when Tony Romo, David Garrard and Damon Huard step in and perform. I'm ready for a steady vet to step in while they build up some semblance of an O-Line.
In a related matter, was anyone real upset when Willis went down? Anthony Thomas ran hard and hit holes with authority. I've had about enough of Willis coasting on his college rep. I can only see him get tackled by the ankle so many times. Eventually we may realize that he is not the marquee player that the media is touting him as. The announcers yesterday were so hung up on him being out, but the A-Train came in and put up numbers (nearly a 5-yard avg and a nice TD) with the same shoddy protection in front of him. He was decisive and powerful. I like the way he runs, and I don't think he'd be taken down by the fingertips of some 5-foot-nothing 100-and-nothing dandy-fop cornerback. Willis looks to be nothing more than another 1200 yard back, nothing special in today's NFL. I think its time to cut bait.
Also, I've reached the breaking point with Nate Clements as well (although this happened some time ago). He did make one solid play to break up a long pass, and proceeded to flex his biceps in celebration. Following that he was abused by Donald Driver, continuously. That's not how I expect a top-notch cornerback to play. especially when he makes 7 mil.
Bright spots....KO J Simpson finally making a play, and a big one. Aaron Schobel is a beast. Peters is a mauler. Go Biiiills!
