Fumble 


Just re watched the game. I am still really happy with how we played. After watching the Walsh fumble, I saw that we were 1 block away from scoring on that play. Seaton ran right by the guy that made the hit. Still great effort though!

Re: Fumble 


Agree, but the kid was giving great effort. Still, if Seaton makes the block, we score.

Re: Fumble 



I call BS on that. You don't know why the ball came out. Walsh has shown during his career that he is a tough hombre and is willing to throw his body around in order to get the extra yard.

Sheesh. Tough crowd. I don't hold this against JW in the slightest. He was airborne vertical and going to come down on his head had he not used both hands. Can't blame the kid for a split second decision not to risk breaking his neck.

Re: Fumble 


So what if he had not dropped the ball to brace his fall and broke his neck in the fall?  Hypotheticals don't help anyone.  I was proud of all the Cowboys even though probably all of them made some type of mistake during the game.  How many of you expected a win on Saturday?  But after the fact, you want to criticize the players for not making plays that might have won the game.  I think this game was great to build confidence in the team especially in the new players, even though they did not win.  The season is still ahead of them and I am excited to watch them compete.

Re: Fumble 


I agree with you.  I don't want anyone to get hurt and especially not in the first game of the season.  And we need Walsh the rest of the way.  He will only get better and he is a leader.  I am really, really excited for the rest of the season.

He was coming straight down on his neck. It's a natural reaction to break your fall my gosh. If that's my son I hope he does the same thing. The kid played hard and never gave up. I'm proud of him. Forget your disappointment.

Pretty sure it was Lacy who missed the block. The DB avoided the block and dove in and took Walsh's legs out. A young player that now will always remember the importance of just one block.

Re: Fumble 


Walsh's toughness and determination can not be questioned.  If it were a deliberate decision he would have held on to the ball to the detriment of his own head and neck.   But it wasn't.  It is a normal reaction to throw up your hands when your head is about to bounce off the ground with great force.

Re: Fumble 


Walsh made a mistake but he didn't drop the ball deliberately. He was upside down and instinctively put both arms out to break his fall and lost the ball. He should have kept the ball arm tucked and just used the other arm to pivot, his momentum would have likely rotated him over rather than him dropping on his head. But it's impossible to consider all of that when you're in the air flipping cleats over helmet. It's real easy to know it all when you're sitting in a cushy chair watching the game from home. Bottom line, our players have to keep situational awareness and put ball security first. I was extremely proud of our players and coaches, we got off to a bad start and fought back with a chance to win the game. We surprised the nation and I couldn't be prouder in defeat.

Re: Fumble 


The mistake was made when he decided to try to jump over the defender instead of covering up.  I understand he was going for the first down and likely his eyes lit up when he saw all that open space after his previous long run, but he's our starting QB.  Gotta cover up and not risk injury and/or a fumble.

I don't think it is deliberate. It is more like a reflect action. Just unfortunate and cannot really blame him on that one. It just happens. **** happens in a game.

The biggest mistake in this thread is you jokers fail to understand sarcasm. No kidding he fumbled, sperry was making a joke. I bet you guys are a blast parties.

That last sentence was more sarcasm.

Nope,  The DB took the inside position on the WR.  All the WR could do was force him inside.

JW should have gone outside the DB and Seaton should have finished off the DB.  Either of those two would have scored a TD.

He instinctively defended himself . .. . .  .   per Mixon's lawyer.
