Dallas Cowboys Shouldn’t be Concerned With Green Bay Packers’ QB Situation
Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you know that Aaron Rodgers’ health status heading into the Green Bay Packers’ Week 15 game against the Dallas Cowboys is the hottest topic in the sports world right now. Some say he’s going to play, some say he’s not while others just play it safe with the “game-time decision” reports. On Dallas’ end, everyone is freaking out about how the Cowboys should prepare, but it really doesn’t matter who’s under center for Green Bay.
Did you see Dallas play on Monday night? Sure, Josh McCown has been good for the Chicago Bears this year, but the Cowboys made him look like Steve Young — the 34-year-old backup had 348 passing yards with four touchdowns to go along with 16 rushing yards and another score. Dallas got no pass rush whatsoever and McCown picked the Cowboys’ secondary apart just like any passer would with eight seconds to throw.
Thus, the Cowboys need to focus on one thing: Putting pressure on the passer. Whether it’s Rodgers or Matt Flynn doesn’t matter because the latter will shred Dallas’ secondary just like the former if he’s given all day to throw. Heck, Ryan Leaf could throw for 300 yards and a trio of scores against this pathetic Cowboys defense.
And as a side note, don’t be one of the buffoons who blames the Cowboys’ defensive backs; pass rush is the problem (or lack thereof) just like it always has been. Of course, Monte Kiffin’s moronic scheme that doesn’t fit Dallas’ personnel whatever certainly doesn’t help, either, which just adds to the fact it’s not the poor play of the defensive backs that’s causing this meltdown.
So in short, don’t expect a Cowboys win if Flynn starts for the Packers. Unless Dallas can at least keep his internal clock to the industry standard of four seconds, he’ll further expedite Jason Garrett’s exit from Big D just like McCown did in Week 14.

raining camp is underway, which is a welcome sign for most. But for some, I'm sure they wish these first few days would have gone a little differently.
