    I know this was his first game back from injury..but man..he is no where close to what he was last year. I really hope last year wasn't a fluke..he NEEDS a big game before the playoffs..if not..not confident with him at all...

    Looks like a sophomore slump. I'm with you in being nervous about this kid. Hope he gets it together fast.

    It seems like a confidence issue. He isn't totally out of position but its like he's doesn't want to look for the ball in fear of losing his man.

    He looked just as bad, if not worse the first few games of the season. Was playing much better until the injury.

    He seems to be affected by rust, first the lockout now the injury, I'll wait until late December to get nervous.

    Re: Mccourty..are you getting nervous?

    Not really. I thought he had looked better of late after sucking in the beginning of the year.

    Consistency seems to be his issue, now, which is typical for those experiencing the dreaded sophomore slump.

    Re: Mccourty..are you getting nervous?

    he has not been good at man coverage all year and this was he's first game back from injury vs a pretty good WR, but it is what it is guys like Vince Young and Dan Orlovsky will throw for 300+ on this defense and it's going to be like that every week

    Why is he still a starter? Make him earn it. Sick of seeing him get toasted.

    Re: Mccourty..are you getting nervous?

    Because we have no one else? So you just want to give up on him right now? With how thin we are in the secondary. LOL

    Re: Mccourty..are you getting nervous?

    What's LOL is McCourty's play. A scrub off the street certainly couldn't be much worse.

    Looks like we can dust off the Dez Bryant / McCourty argument again huh?

    Re: Mccourty..are you getting nervous?

    So your opinion is that McCourty hasn't been bad?

    Re: Mccourty..are you getting nervous?

    No, because (A) Dez would have fared little better than Taylor Price, and (B) it's McCourty + Hernandez v. Dez.

    Re: Mccourty..are you getting nervous?

    I think we all acknowledge that McCourty hasn't lived up to expectations, and his play has diminished from his freshman form.

    Your notion that any player off the street would perform better than him is laughably stupid. You're an idiot. Next.

    Re: Mccourty..are you getting nervous?

    Of course he's been bad..but you have to wait out the year before you bench him for another no name or a guy we don't have. I still trust him to make more plays than the out guy replacing him..even if he hasn't made a play.


    Yeah let's bench our #1 corner..that will show em!

    Re: Mccourty..are you getting nervous?

    I'll still take Dez, we have a great TE and a great slot WR. We need a play maker on the outside or we are EFFED in the playoffs. As I write this, Dez just caught a TD from Romo.
