We're much better equipped to deal with them this time around.
No doubt. But, if I'm being honest, I was just as sure last year that we were going to beat them as I am today. That was a game that just stunned me, and I felt like an idiot for expecting such good things.
He basically took the wind out of my sails here this morning. I still think we win, convincingly, today, because the matchups really are in our favor (better coverage ILBs, better CBs, and we've got a major advantage on their battered OL). But now I've got the seeds of doubt, thanks to theebs.
When asked whether Jason Garrett is the right head coach for this team: "I don't think there is anyone else that could. I think he is an unbelievable coach. We've responded to him and he has made us better football players, better people. If you watch us I think we play with a certain relentless spirit." --Sean Lee
