Three Phases: Cowboys-Bears



    Every week, we'll grade the Cowboys on the three phases of the weekend's game.

    Offense: C

    The one saving grace here is that DeMarco Murray gashed the Bears' porous run defense for 99 yards in the first half alone. Then, in true Jason Garrett/Bill Callahan fashion, the Cowboys abandoned the run for most of the second half. So, Murray gets an A. Everyone else gets an F, or a G or H, maybe.

    Defense: F-

    What can be said here? The Bears never punted. Never. Sean Lee got hurt again, Brandon Carr couldn't cover anyone and everything was just bad, bad, bad. Seriously, I don't really know what else to say. Simpy stunning. There's no reason Monte Kiffin should still be the defensive coordinator of a team that still has a very real chance of playing in the postseason. It's awful.

    Special teams: C

    Whatever. Yeah. Just because.
