    Our O-line really stepped up their protection in the 2nd half.

    1st half duds: everyone

    2nd half duds: the refs

    2nd half studs:

    Eddy Lacy: Pure Talent here. Just a beast, never gives up fighting for every single inch.

    Matt Flynn: Seemed very confident and lead the team to this awesome comeback.

    Tramon Williams: Finally he showed, why he is paid that much.

    Basically the whole team. The O-Line stepped up, the Defense, especially in coverage was way improved in the second half. The Receiver catched all balls (the Nelson catch was just perfectly performed). I also like the play-calling in the second half, good balance between the run and pass.

    Not to forget:

    Romo: Just for being Romo.

    Garrett: For passing the whole second half, although being in front by 23 points.

    First half stud = Crosby. That 57 yd FG turned out to be pretty important

    Despite Murray getting plenty of running room. He had like 120 yards in the first half. Unbelievably bad coaching in Dallas. I would love to have been a fly on the wall in Jerry Jones' booth.

    2nd half stud of the season:Tony Romo. Garrett put him under the bus (not me) for throwing that pick on a called running play. I would take Romo as our backup for next year if he clears waivers.

    Others, Lacy, Hawk, Flynn, Shields

    First half didn't count. Preseason game.

    Please add Jason Garrett to your list of duds (for Dallas)/studs (for Green Bay). I didn't realize this until I read it, but DeMarco Murray averaged 7.6 yards/carry in the first half then was given SEVEN (7) carries in the second half.

    Studs:
    1st half: The Cowboy Cheer leaders

    2nd Half: The entire Packer Team..can't believe these guys came back and won that game after how bad they looked in the first 2 qrtrs ..still feels surreal in a way. MM finally is showing he can make adjustments and it's paying off.


    DUDS:
    Capers still has to go, the defense still looks bad and theres no way in the world they should have won that game. More thanks goes to the Cowboys for not running the ball smh. Just plain old bad coaching at it's finest. They gashed us all game.

    Romo. I live in Texas so i don't have to say anything bad about him...they are going to murder the guy in the media all week haha. To bad.

    Please see post #13

    Garrett should be fired for not running Murray 15-25 times in the second half

    My wife and I were commenting on the apparent large turnout of Packers fans and how it sounded like they were playing at home.

    Stud:
    Lattimore- for stepping up during halftime and rallying the team.

    Decision to let Boyd, Datone and Daniels play over Pickett and Raji more in the 2nd half. This is the first time I have seen Capers scrap his depth chart and really mix up the personnel and it worked. The only big drive the Cowboys had in the 2nd half was when he had the original depth chart in (Pickett, Raji, Brad Jones, Jennings).

    Special teams: Really nice kick offs from Crosby, great punting as always by Masthay, Goode making a tackle on a punt, Hyde with a nice return, Bush leading the way tackling. The 57 yarder crosby drilled. This excludes Ryan Taylor and his stupid scrapping after every single play that is going to cost him and the team one of these days.

    Duds:
    Brad Jones and MD Jennings. I don't question their effort but they just are not good. They are liabilities out there and both are easily exploited.
    Raji's effort: It is hard to judge effort but his doesn't pass the eye test. Seeing Boyd doing spin moves and relentlessly fighting makes Raji look like a real dead ***.

    The speculation on NFL radio this morning is that Romo was checking out of runs. Guys said that Garrett was looking angrier and angrier on the sideline as the game went on, I didn't notice it myself. Even if true it still is Garretts responsibility. If the QB isn't doing what you ask him to - pull him for a series and have a talk with him.

    Studs:
    As already noted, the whole team in the 2nd half. That felt like a 2010 season effort, picks and all.
    AJ Hawk's chin strap

    Duds:
    First half, refs...tramon shouldnt have stopped on that pick and run into the endzone, but its a moot point.

    By both teams, ours in the first half; theirs in the second.

    Not even in the same ballpark. I think the coaching by Dallas is some of the worst I have seen since the Rich Kotite in NY- wait, forgot about Spurrier. If Dallas runs the ball 3 or 4 more times in the first half, takes extra 2 mins off the clock, they win. It should have been real easy, no matter how good the Packers started playing.

    In my eyes - the Packers came back in the 2nd doing about the same thing as the first from a coaching standpoint, just that the players were suddenly playing with some passion out there.

    The commentators made a point of saying, a couple of times, that Jerry Jones sent a message that the defense had to play more aggressively. Perhaps that spilled over to the offense, or maybe Jerry was feeling his oats and had a word with Romo as he left the locker room.

    Sometimes there are unintended consequences. This is a particular risk when you stick your nose where it doesn't belong.

    I think Quarless' play deserves special mention. He's making it easier to get over Finley's loss, while sliding TE down the list of draft needs. And like Finley, he's a sub-standard blocker...a quinella.

    See...it is possible to acknowledge the good and the bad.
