It makes for a nice storyline that T.O and Pacman and Roy E. Williams and Tony Romeo are tearing the team apart, but I think the "ego" effect is overblown.
You really believe there aint at least a little bit of dis-chemisty in that locker room?

I have to agree with Robinson, the Cowboys are slowly falling apart. They might not do a Bungle-impression, but they're falling nonetheless.

There's probably a deficiency of chemistry in every locker room, especially when you've lost 3 out of 4 games.

They didn't lose to the rams because of chemistry...they lost because their secondary is in shambles and their backup QB couldn't protect the ball or make the necessary throws.

So, their secondary being in shambles is why Jackson trucked over them for 160 yards and 3 TDs on the ground?

Well no, not directly. But when the back end of your secondary keeps giving up big plays, you have to adjust. That may or may not have entailed more play calls designed to protect against the pass.

They ranked 12th against the run and 23rd against the pass coming into this week, while St. Louis ranked 31st in running and 29th in passing (Granted, they are a different team now under Haslett).

I think if the Boys still had Pacman, Newman, and Jenkins back there, they wouldn't have allowed 160 on the ground to steve jax.

Edit: I just responded to a post that no longer exits

Good point - the Cowboys may have been overcompensating against the pass due to their absences and in the meantime, Jackson just chewed them up on the ground. I didn't see the game, so I can't say for sure, but it may have gone down that way.
