Seriously what makes you think our team has the mental compacity to win 10 games? You can have all the talent in the world but if you don't have what it takes mentally it's never going to click. When is the last time Dallas has dominated in all 3 phases of a game? For the most part of these past couple of years the defense has kept us in A LOT of games, even the ones where Romo marched down the field late in 4th quarters. To me, it always seems like the defense bails us out. Until I see us play a complete game on a consistent basis, I'll stick with 8-8. You can't win 10 games settling for FGs in the red zone instead of TDs
I thought things were really going to click this season, but after the 1st two weeks it's the same **** over and over. Bad play calling, can't run the ball, suspect offensive line, stupid penalties, and turnovers! We've been repeating the same cycle over and over again since we went 13-3. The philosphy of the coaching staff is so inconsistent.
Yes, our division is watered down, but it's been a STRUGGLE for years to get 9 wins. I wouldn't be surpised if the bum *** Giants took the division.
Our schedule last year wasn't that tough, who did we beat besides Cincy that was a playoff team? The year before that, 2011, we should have easily won 12 games but we forgot the game of football is 4 quarters not 3!
Look at a team like the 49ers, they get embarrassed by Seattle last week but you know they are going to come back out firing this week vs Indy. Not saying is an automatic win but we know they will come out much more prepared and stick to their gameplan. Now look at Dallas, lose to KC and not one person in this thread can say they have all the confidence in world that they will come out with a chip on their shoulder and handle STL with ease like they should. We don't know if we want to be a smash mouth physical football team with a great D or a high powered offensive who can outscore you like the Pats/Packers. Every week it's something different, no consistency on the offensive side of the ball leads to 8-8.
I want to believe in this team so bad, but they refuse to show me otherwise, even when I'm looking at things unobjectively
