Last Sunday at Seattle, the Dallas Cowboys’ defensive effort reminded inside linebacker Sean Lee of 2011, and, as you could probably guess if you watched more than a couple games last year, that is not a good thing.
“It was the type of defense we played last year, where we would have one half where we would play really well and the second half would be ...” Lee said, allowing the reader (or listener) to apply their own negative adjective to describe the 2011 defense, per ESPN Dallas.
After an impressive first half, Lee believes the defense lost focus, allowing the Seahawks to run away with the game. But, Lee maintains that effort wasn’t the issue.
“I would say more of a lack of focus on doing your job every single time,” Lee said. “When I turned the film on I didn’t see lack of effort. It was, we’ve got to focus on doing our job every single time. They hit a play, OK, let’s go, let’s get back out there and focus on our job and do it the same way every single time.”
