then play terrible the next 3 games.
Frustrating Indeed !!!
I don't agree with the title of your thread it's obvious you're very frustrated and forgot how bad the Campo years were but I do agree this current Cowboy team is a bunch of inconsistent underachievers and you never know what to expect from one week to another. In all the years I've been following the Cowboys I've never seen a more up down Cowboy team than the one in 2011 and so far this season.
When we all looked at the schedule prior to the season the game that worried us the most during the first 4 weeks was the season opener vs the Giants and that ended up being the only game the Cowboys have looked good in.
This Cowboys team is so hard to figure they'll probably go out on Sunday and win by 17 over the Ravens then get throttled by 24 the following week to a Carolina team that's riding a 3 game losing streak.
The big difference between this team and the teams under Campo is this Cowboy team is capable of winning each week because it has far more talent especially at the QB and skill positions than Campo's teams. As inconsistent as this team is it still gives you hope every week while Campo's teams were virtually hopeless. Entering each season under Campo even the most optimistic FANS knew those teams had little to no chance of making the playoffs.
Campo's teams were so bad that only 3 times did the Cowboys ever reach 500 while he was the head coach. During Campo's final year in 2002 the Cowboys reached 500 in week #2, week #4 and week #6. The bottom line is things aren't good right now but it's not hopeless because I lived through hopeless and trust me this ain't it.
