#3442046 Bewildered over Cowboy nation these days

Posted by Erod on 02 May 2016 - 04:26 PM

It's truly stunning.

A year ago, people around here were disgusted about signing Darren McFadden.  Too old, too injury-prone, too slow, no production, 4th string on the Raiders, just a guy to give Joseph Randle a break.  Nothing but a flyer and damage control.
Dallas was being disloyal to the greatness of Demarco Murray, and stupid to let him get away to an arch rival for $8 million a year.  Dallas should have given this 27-year-old running back what he had earned the prior year, even though he'd never really done anything like that before (and probably wouldn't again).
The angst was rightly palpable, especially after a draft that yielded no answers. 
Fast forward a year...
Many of these same people now claim McFadden is all the Cowboys needed behind this offensive line.  Suddenly, he's a spring chicken with 300 carries easy in his body, and he would have delivered this time in the clutch, not just in meaningless games and garbage time.  Alfred Morris would have added to the greatness, despite the fact Washington said "no thanks" just like Oakland did to McFadden.  Other teams trash is suddenly our stolen treasure.
Drafting a 20-year-old phenom likened to Ladanian Tomlinson was a wasted pick.  That's the gobbledygook being slopped around local radio and these boards. 
The amazingly ridiculous suggestion is that Elliott won't be measurably more successful behind this offensive line than the two journeymen cast-offs.  Never mind that Elliott is much faster, more powerful, vastly laterally quicker, better built, a better blocker, and a significantly better receiver than both of both of the vets combined.  All that with a new set of Michelins, and a lesser price tag than Murray. 
With a healthy Romo, this will now be the best offense in football.  But never mind that.  Wasted pick.
The stat dorks will point to McFadden's meaningless yards.  They'll ignore the situational aspects of what it means to defend plays against a superstar back versus a scrap-heap guy.  They'll ignore Elliott's propensity to score touchdowns, which McFadden has seldom done.  They'll ignore the great likelihood that McFadden would have gotten hurt again, for the umpteenth time, any day now.
Fans around the division wanted to throw bricks through their TVs.  The whole league is shaking their heads in disgust about what Elliott adds to this offense.  Cowboy haters are none to happy because it doesn't take a rocket surgeon to do the math.
Apparently, we're running low on rocket surgeons these days.  I expect it from local media, who are clawing and scratching for relevance and audience these days.  But from the common Cowboys fans, especially those who watched what Dorsett and Emmitt did here, it's befuddling to put it kindly.
Six months from now, you'll nary here a whisper about it again.  Elliott will be the brightest rookie star, and nobody except Jacksonville fans will be uttering the name of Jalen Ramsey.  The NFC East will see the Cowboys in first place, and be dreading the next many years of facing Elliott and this monster line.
In the meantime, I think I need to invest in ear muffs.  (Cue the Old School memes.)

#3830960 JUst met Dez Bryant

Posted by Reid1boy on 21 November 2016 - 05:34 AM

So not only was the day amazing.... obviously we won, but the pre and post game party that was happening at AT&T with the band outside the stadium was GREAT FUN. So we head out to downtown Dallas to have dinner and drinkss. We meet the manager of the place where we are hanging and he gives us a tour and just basically hangs out with us for the night.


W are leaving, and of course the 4 of us are decked out in our Cowboys garb, me in my Dez jersey.... he says, hey, Dez just left and is walking down the street..... im like, yeah, whatever.

Here comes a Bentley right in front of us, and no kidding, its Dez. He sees us, stops, roles down the window, lets us tell him how great he, and snaps a couple pics with my family.


He did not need to stop, didnt need to role down his window, nor take pics with delirious fans. What a way to cap off our great trip.

#3975611 The loss isn't nearly as bad as the attitudes.

Posted by Runwildboys on 16 January 2017 - 01:52 AM

It sucks that we lost tonight.  It really sucks!....but I can accept it, knowing that we're just at the beginning of a beautiful reign of terror in the NFL.


This season went much farther than anyone...ANYONE...expected. Not only do we have the best RB in the league, but one of, if not the best O-line, our franchise QB, a good receiving corps, some pretty good players on the rise on our defense (including Jaylon Smith, who will likely become one of the best LBs in the league), and this team is so young that we'll be in the top of the league for several years! 


Once we add to this defense, we'll be sitting very pretty.


So yeah, it sucks bad that we lost tonight....but at least there's a Hell of a lot to look forward to....yet all I see, with very few exceptions, are how this guy sucks, and this guy has to go, and yadda yadda friggin' yadda!


I realize some of us need to process this loss, and grieve in their own way, but man, some of it just makes the loss worse for everyone else. Misery loves company, but not miserable company. Try to see the good side, instead of blaming this one or that one.  We had a great run, for a team that wasn't supposed to even have a winning record.

#111327 New Warning.

Posted by kskboys on 24 August 2012 - 05:31 PM

Just want to let everyone know that we're going to be handing out some 24 hour vacations for personal attacks and cursing. I've been letting some masked profanity slide, but no more. Listen, the "F" word does not belong on these forums in any way, shape or form. Find a different way to say things. Also might want to be careful about posting the same thing over and over, as that is considered spamming.

Just wanted to warn so as not to surprise anyone. Thank you, ksk

#3610415 What Dak Said To Dez During Practice Is Amazing

Posted by DallasBoyz15 on 29 August 2016 - 11:02 PM

By Steve Mullenax-The Landry Hat

During an 11 on 11 period, late in practice, the offense had 10 seconds left to score.Prescott was the QB.With the 1st unit. After a pass to Dez, in which Dez was suppose to go out of bounds immediately to stop the clock or go down in bounds so offense could stop the clock with a timeout, Bryant tried to score but time ran out

Dak said words to this affect, We know you are the best rwceiver and you MIGHT score, but we can't take that chance. Gotta use your head.
Dez admitted the rookie was right.

Kid sounds like and plays like hes been in the nfl as long as Romo

#3756476 Fair Warning: Romo

Posted by kskboys on 23 October 2016 - 06:28 PM

There are a couple of people in here who are insisting on making everything about Romo.  Problem is, good discussions are being derailed.    


There is a separate forum for Romo discussions, please take your comments down there.       The reason we started the Romo forum in the first place was so people could have a discussion w/o someone piping in about a different subject. 


I'll be giving out warnings, just FYI.    Thank you!!!

#3903217 Dear Cowboys Fans

Posted by Bobhaze on 19 December 2016 - 06:16 AM

We won the game tonight. We are 12-2. I am enjoying this season as much as any season in the 50+ years I've followed this team. When we win, I don't care who's playing QB or whether the play calling meets everyone's standards or how strong we looked. I don't care if "I was right" about ______or wrong about ______either. Winning = good. Always.

Enjoy the ride. Celebrate the wins and remember what it was like this time last year. This is some fine wine we drinking up in here!

Posted by CouchCoach on 09 May 2017 - 07:23 PM

How about this?  If you don't like a thread, don't post in it.  If you feel it belongs somewhere else, send a Mod a message, don't post that in the thread.


If posters don't support a thread, it dies on its own.  I know, I've euthanized enough of my own.


It is disrespectful and insulting to the thread originator and who cares?  It is not like there is a thread limit. That sends the wrong message to posters who may want to, and have the same right to, start a thread.

THANK YOU EVERYONE, for your sweet words, thoughts & prayers. Husband's memorial service is on Thursday, and the funeral won't be until sometime in January. He's being buried at Arlington National Cemetery, with full military honors for a 30-year career. But because it's ANC, there's a backlog, which is why the funeral won't be until January. Still not ready to come back here yet, as there's too much to do. I'm overwhelmed by the outpourings of love and support for me and our family :wub: .


Again, THANK YOU from the bottom of my heart.

#3883482 Let's take a deep breath, but realize the tide is turning

Posted by Erod on 12 December 2016 - 05:02 PM

Quietly, teams are starting to out-Dallas the Cowboys.  Time of possession is no longer in a stranglehold.  Third-down efficiency is in the crapper on offense.  Zeke's yards are coming tougher to come by.  Receiver production is way down.  Dak's numbers are dropping precipitously week by week. 

Everything is trending the wrong way except the defense, and the 11-2 record.  Still the best record in the NFL.  No way to deny that.  The Cowboys are in great shape in that regard.
But as with every season, there are realities tucked inside the results.  You're almost never as good or bad as your record says you are.  Yes, Mr. Parcells, you are what your record says you are so far, but there are underlying truths that hint where you are headed. 
Lots of good records have been one-and-done in the playoffs.  The Cowboys look destined to be a quick out if things don't change dramatically, and soon.
Some points to ponder:
1.  A loss is not necessarily a bad thing, but a loss to the Giants really hurt badly.  The Cowboys are effectively only 1 1/2 games up on New York because the tie-breaker is lost.  This season turned from home-field throughout to potentially a wild card.  Not likely, but a lot more possible than 24 hours ago.  However, the flip side is that there won't be this month of meaningless football to navigate, which could have been a dangerous trap.  Now, they've got to play.  There's no looking too far ahead now, and that's a good thing. 
2.  The defense continues to improve, and that is so promising for now and yonder.  Sean Lee....good gosh, he's playing incredibly well, and knock on wood, his body seems to have found its balance at outside linebacker the past two seasons.  Anthony Brown?  You are kidding me.  Best 6th-round pick in forever around here.  Brandon Carr played Beckham amazingly well last night aside from one quick slant.  McClain, Collins, Wilson, Hitchens, Heath.....contributions coming from unlikely areas.  They have found a little strut on defense, and that's great to see.  They are swarming and hitting everything.  This finally looks like a true Rod Marinelli-style defense.
3.  The book is out on this offense, but playcalling is not the problem.  When you can't get the 4-5 yards you're used to on first down - run or pass - it makes the game difficult.  The Giants were stacked up on the line all night, begging to be hurt for big plays.  They were betting Dallas couldn't take advantage, and they were right.  Just like Minnesota.  The Cowboys are 2-for-26 on third down the past two weeks, and that's because they can't damage these fronts on early downs lately.  They're going to see the same thing against Tampa, Detroit, and Philly (remember, the Eagles shut Dallas down for 3 1/2 quarters).  The Cowboys have to learn quickly how to execute against those looks, or it could be trouble.  Dak has to let the ball go quicker, and make decisions before the snap to beat it.  That's what veterans understand and rookies don't.  Most of the play happens for a QB before the ball is even snapped.
4.  OK, let's do the quarterback thing.  Everybody needs to just relax no matter what.  Dak Prescott is the future, and Tony Romo is available right now.  Those two facts don't have to argue with each other.  It's all good no matter what they do in the long term.  I personally believe, like I have all year, that the ONLY chance at a championship this year is with Romo in the end.  That is not a slight to Dak, who is going through what rookies go through and has a fantastic career ahead of him.  I could not possibly be more excited or impressed with our young rookie QB.  That we found him is the stuff of Cowboy legend already.  It's such a relief.  However, the only elite QB here at this moment is Romo, and of course, that's only if he can still take a hit, which we don't know.  Playing him would not set Dak back.  It would change nothing regarding Dak's career.  It might even be good for him.  If he comes out and looks just as lost against Tampa, this might be the time to make the change for this season.  See what Romo can do for a couple of weeks, see if he can take a hit and get up, and then you have a clear picture what the best option is for the playoffs.  That would clear the air for the coaches and players, Jerry, us, everybody.  If Dak can shake off the recent weeks and get back to form, then that's perfectly fine, too.  There are no hand grenades with this.    
5.  Along the same lines, it's going to be a tough go for Zeke moving forward.  Teams are stacked up for him and the short routes to Beasley, and are determined to make Dak Prescott do everything downfield and outside.  Again, 2-for-26 on third down says that approach against Dallas is working.  Tampa can play defense, too, and they'll be putting the game on Dak this weekend as well.   Zeke can't run through walls enough to win the game for Dallas.  Dak has to throw teams out of these fronts, and if he can't......   Romo might be the best solution to get Zeke some running room.  An elite veteran QB will murder those sell-out fronts against the run. 
This is such a unique team with unique circumstances, the coaches have a lot of decisions to make this week, and I'm not even talking about Dak/Romo.  The Cowboys are going to have change a lot of things offensively, put in a lot more pre-snap adjustments and reads, and change the tempo.  The defense is hitting stride, while the offense is falling apart.
Dallas has four weeks to prep for the postseason.  There's a lot to do.

#3851039 Need your prayers again, Cowboys family...

Posted by Call Me Doc on 30 November 2016 - 11:25 PM

While I realize that this isn't the appropriate forum for this topic, I feel like I have no other choice. So for this, I sincerely apologize to the mods.



My husband went in for a checkup today, and found out the problems he's been having with his kidney, isn't kidney stones after all. It's metastatic lung cancer to the kidney.  :(


His lungs, are cancer free, THANK GOD! But this is just another problem that I just didn't need right now. I will continue to be as diligent in his treatment, as I ever have been. There are no quitters in this family! :angry:


I ask for any and all prayers; my faith stays tested, but I STILL TRUST GOD! I will be taking another hiatus from the forums, but still cheering for our 'Boys the entire way! I SINCERELY LOVE YOU ALL (even though we've never met), and couldn't ask for a better "3rd family" :wub:

#3818566 Fell like my best friend just died

Posted by Reid1boy on 16 November 2016 - 01:03 AM

Just watched Tony's press conference........ damn. 

I was 21 when when Magic did his press conference and announced he was HIV positive...... I feel almost like that right now. Tony has been the most heavily criticized ATHLETE in all of sports in the past 10 years...... very unfairly IMO. Our team sucked, and because of Tony's ability, we competed.


He was a man today on that podium. IMO, he is still the better QB, he still gives us a better chance at winning the SB, but this is such a unique situation that I get why the Cowboys must stay with Dak. 


Fans always complain that our athletes just want that check. They dont really care about winning or losing in the end, but they want to get paid.  Well today you saw an athlete that is selfless and is the epitome of what it means to be a team captain. Here is a man that has taken a beating in the past 10 years, and has continued to come back because he wanted to help his team win. When is the last time you heard ANY athlete truly talk from the heart as Tony did this afternoon? Talking about how he let US down.......... no Tony, you didnt let us down, you gave us fans hope for a better tomorrow when our team sucked. You made us think we always had a chance to win games.


Today, I have as much respect for Tony Romo as I have ever had. My only hope going forward is that we do NOT trade Tony next year,,as I just read that no matter what we do, next year we have 17 million committed to our cap for Tony..... so we keep him and dont put us back into back up hell.


If we do trade him, I want him traded to Denver where he can join Ware and have the same legit chance at winning a SB before he retires.


I know I sound like a mushy wussy..... but like T.O. once said......... thats my quarterback!

#3742509 Was at Lambeau today

Posted by cowboyfan927 on 17 October 2016 - 02:53 AM

First of all great experience. Beautiful weather obviously the game was great

Packer fans absolute first class. Best experience I've ever had in a visiting stadium

From the seats it looked like it was a worse beating than 14 points. Couldn't hear announcer comments but just looked like GB never seriously threatened

Dak looked a little bit disjointed early. Missed a few throws and looked late on some others but then once he settled down he looked good. That drive just before half was huge. Great play calling great execution. Was very proud of him. We got a good one there

Zeke is a stud. So is Cole. Sean Lee playing as well as he ever has. Byron Jones looks better every week.

The key to this year's team is our defense. If we can continue to generate at least some pressure and create turnovers we'll be really tough to beat

Great win. My son and I had an amazing time.
