Sorry, I was mainly referring to that ridiculous "we are not a superbowl team" crap on another thread and some over reactionary "we suck" posts I'm reading.

Re: Cowboys

... but we're not. Our entire team was outrun today by Chris Ivory.

If we don't develop a run game we won't be going any more than one-deep into the playoffs.

THAT's a FACK JACK.

There's some very questionable coaching going on right now with the offense and lack of real production is what's disturbing.

Can Sean effectively call consecutive run plays, we run for 5 than pass - just no rhythm. Its hard in Sean's offense for a running back to get hot cause he abandon it with a quickness. PT and Sproles are different types of backs and the type of back we really need ran ruff-shot on us today. With no faith in Ingram we will not advance as far as we'd like. Guess it's too much invested in Ingram and we paid the price, Ivory torched us. I like the Robinson kid but he need the reps. Will/Can Sean do it?

Re: Cowboys

You shouldn't have a good feeling going into the second half. Look at the first half. The teams we beat are all ****ty teams for the most part and most of those we barely eeked out at the last minute. None of our wins have looked impressive with the exception of the Cards game. That was our cake walk. The easy part of our season is over and now comes the real NFL contenders. Not to mention the fact that Carolina is looking damn good right now. If our O line keeps getting handled like it has been in the first half there is not going to be many of them left to play down the stretch. A defense like Carolinas is going to absolutely destroy our line. We have had a very smoke and mirrors type season this year.

Re: Cowboys

I agree Dude. A couple of our wins could have went either way.
We just expect to win some of these games by 2 touchdowns or more
and it's just not happening. We've seen some improvement in or defense
but it looks like our offense has started struggling. I'm still waiting to see
some "consistent" play on both sides of the ball from one week to another.
We've seen flashes of good-solid play but no consistency.
Perhaps my expectations were too high with the return of Payton at the helm.
They definitely weren't ready to play, which is what I have come to expect with him.
Slow still can't be coached faster.
We just have to find a way to cover our flaws and bucket our leaks.

Totally agree. The way Drew "fakes" a hand-off is lame -- not even mentioning the pass/pass/pass/pass/pass/maybe run (second thought ) pass/ ... etc. till you just want to pull your hair out.

Even if we did get to the SB, its outside, thats a automatic loss for us lol
OK, agreed with you up to here "Even if we did get to the SB, its outside, thats a automatic loss for us".

We beat the Bucs outside in --- wait for it --- <GASP> THE RAIN!! LOL

OK, we almost lost, but, hey...

Re: Cowboys

The most annoying thing for me was that we were having success running the ball when we did

PT was gaining 3-4 every run, Ingram went 3 yard, 2 yards, then had a 15 yarder

As soon as we go down a score, it just goes into panic mode

It didn't help that just before the half we were going down to score and Nick Toon thought he played for his dads team and gave cromartie the ball

Re: Cowboys

I bet the Cowboys are who were on the coaches mind; so we'd better torch the Jerry Jones Rodeo Clown show after that debacle in New York...
