LONDON -- There was an easy joke to make when Brandon Weeden was showing some members of Tottenham Hotspur how to correctly throw a football Tuesday, especially after Weeden’s performance in the Dallas Cowboys' loss to the Arizona Cardinals last week.
Weeden completed 18 of 33 passes for 183 yards with a touchdown and two interceptions. He never looked comfortable and did not complete a pass to Dez Bryant until 1:50 remained in the game.
Weeden and the coaches put together a thorough review of what went wrong against the Cardinals.
"A couple of them were timing issues," Weeden said. "I think a couple of them were just not very good throws, a couple of them just not accurate throws."
Cowboys coach Jason Garrett has expressed faith that Weeden can bounce back if he is needed to start Sunday against the Jacksonville Jaguars because of Tony Romo's injured back. Weeden is approaching this week the same as the previous nine.
He has to be ready.
"Just get back on track," Weeden said. "I played well on Monday night [against the Washington Redskins on Oct. 27] and I didn't play good enough on Sunday night. Just build on the positive, don't dwell on the other things. I watched the tape and sometimes it's never as good and never as bad as you think it is. It's just the way this league goes. There's a lot to build on, a lot to work on and a lot to get better from and fix from the last game."
Like some of the throwing motions of the Tottenham representatives. They had a difficult time throwing a spiral, throwing the ball like they were playing cricket.
"You can tell they're good athletes," Weeden said, "but they for dang sure haven't had a football in their hand very much."
