I have been thinking of the trouble that the DLine was pressuring Romo and the CB's were having with Dez Bryant and I re-considered that we were with out key starters on defense.
I am not an excuse maker - D is as D plays. Still, I think the fact we were missing a talent like Hayden had a difference in the down line effect of the play of the backfield,
My point is that with Hayden in the game we might have been able to send an extra rusher as he is more likely to be a better cover guy than Porter who was giving major cushion. Moreover, Hanson was given the start at slot nickel and was torched repeatedly.
I expect that when we meet again on Thanksgiving day we will have this problem covered or Dez Bryant may set records in number of receptions!
