    Cortez Allen and Curtis Brown hopefully learn from that bad day at the office

    Every player goes through growing pains on the field, and just because you have one good day at the office or even a few good days at the office doesn't mean you are immune to getting your tail handed to you. Hopefully both guys learn from this one and come back stronger this weekend. You know Romo is going to go after both of these guys especially, early and often.

    Brown allowed four first-down catches — two to Michael Spurlock and two to Danario Alexander — in his 26 snaps. Overall, Brown was targeted six times and allowed six catches for 84 yards, including a 39-yard touchdown pass to Alexander late in the first half before getting benched in the fourth quarter for Josh Victorian, who later gave up a touchdown.

    But Brown wasn’t the only one who struggled replacing Taylor.

    Cortez Allen, who got the start at right cornerback but moved to the slot in the nickel, was targeted seven times, giving up six catches for 46 yards, including three third-down conversions.

    Most of Rivers’ success on third downs came on the same route: the out pattern. Of Rivers’ 41 attempts, 14 were out patterns, seven of which resulted in first downs. Rivers finished 9 of 14 for 67 yards when he targeted an out-cutting receiver.

    I guess you could call it struggling but those sideline out cuts are near impossible to defend with the current rules

    well, they may know what to expect, but doesnt lebeau call the coverage either press, or 'forever' cushion that allows the toss and catch with ease?

    Why Cortez wasnt playing......

    Cornerback Cortez Allen suffered a hip flexor against the San Diego Chargers last week, and will be limited in practice this week and Tomlin said, “It may put his participation in question.”

    Linebacker LaMarr Woodley is expected to return to practice this week, with the hopes to have him back on game day.
