I think the offensive improvement--if it's sustainable--is almost perfectly offset by the defensive setbacks, which we know are pretty much going to be permanent.
If Rat were to come back and Lisemore to get stronger, I'd have meager hope for DL improvement and more pressure, but that's not looking likely.
I disagree with people who think we lack leadership from the top down. I think pretty much exactly the opposite. This looks like a gritty team that sticks around and has very good veteran leadership to me. We're compromised by injuries and, early in the year, turnovers.
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
