7 Random Thoughts on Cowboys Game with Pictures (Herreman's tap, Cooper's Hold, Foles Late Hit with PICs)

Upon rewatching the Cowboys game there are a few stories that I haven't seen mentioned yet. Orton rarely threw a pass more than 10 yards, which may have to do a little with the fear of Davis blitzes.

1. Herremans' Tap. I noticed that in the Shotgun Herreman's looks back to Foles sees his foot stomp, the normal silent snap procedure, Herreman's would immediately tap Kelce to snap the ball. In the first couple of drives in the third quarter the Cowboys keyed in on it and sacked Foles twice in a row the last one was a fumble. In the Fourth Quarter Eagles put Foles under center more and changed the cadence of the silent snap, so Herremans would tap and Kelce would take a second or more to snap.

2. Escobar TD. He was ridiculously wide open. Barwin blitzed, Ryans covered in the middle and Allen was 15 yards off scrimmage. Blown coverage. What was interesting to me is how rare we have seen a blown coverage this year, a testament to Bill Davis.

3. Boykin Played Out of His MInd. Boykin was amazing as a gunner forcing fair catches, He set the edge on a run play a couple of times. As well as his interception, defended pass in the endzone.

4. Celek Mugged. The play before Foles fumbled Celek was mugged hit far before the ball go there on the pass, no call. Honestly I didn't see if there were a lot of no calls on Eagles Defense mugging defenders, but none were really noticeable. Picture above.

5. Foles Fumble. Looks like the Cowboys timed there rush on Herreman's tap again.

6. 4th and 1. Eagles stopped Cowboys on fourth and 1 when Barwin swatted Orton's pass. Barwin rushed off the edge, saw the RB run past him on the flat, looked and trusted that RB would be covered. Barwin knew the defense play and trusted Ryans to cover the RB.

7. Foles Slide on 3rd and 10 in fourth quarter. If Eagles make a first down, game over, McCoy trips on OL falls down. Foles rolls out to his right there was no one to throw to. This was supposed to have two players to pass to McCoy and Cooper. But.......


Cooper was held.....
