What's Wrong?

It's been a week since the Dallas Cowboys knocked off the reigning Super Bowl Champion New York Giants 24-17 in the 2012 NFL season opener.  And for most of that week, the pundits and gurus have been asking "What's wrong with the Giants?"

What's wrong with the Giants?


Maybe, just maybe, they're asking the wrong question.

Maybe they should be asking, "How will having an effective running take the pressure off of Tony Romo, so that he doesn't have to carry the entire offense by himself?" 

Maybe they should be asking, "How will Kevin Ogletree effect the passing game now that he's come into his own and developed into a dependable third wide receiver?"

Maybe they should be asking, "How will having cornerbacks who can actually cover will shut down the opponent's passing game?"

Maybe they should be asking, "How will having safeties who are not afraid to tackle will limit the opponent's deep pass threat?"

Maybe they should be asking, "How will having effective DBs will allow the pass rush time to actually get to the quarterback?"

Maybe they should be asking, "How the back up tight-ends would fare in Jason Witten's absence?"  Ok, that was a trick question.  Nobody was asking that.  We all knew the Man Of Steel would be playing. 

Maybe they should be asking, "How will having a full compliment of healthy wide receivers will keep the opponent's defense on their heels, and having a bruising running back will keep them honest?". 

It's been a week since the Dallas Cowboys knocked off the New York Giants, and all the pundits are asking, "What's wrong with the Giants?"

Maybe they are asking the wrong question.

Maybe they should be asking, "What's right with the Cowboys?"
