Really? There's a world of difference in mine.
It's pretty difficult to defend a habit of unconstructive habitual whining that interferes with genuine debate. And, for the life of me, I can't understand why posters think that behavior is not likely to be confronted.
Note, I make a very important distinction between habitual whining and valid criticism. And note that Winicki stepped into the thread to talk football. He made a joke post, and then followed it up with this:
Doug Free has not played well, but I get the point Jerry is making that the offense doesn't or hasn't used much play-action due to...
-poor running game
-falling behind so quick so often
-Garret falling in love with the shotgun
The result is that the Cowboys tackles do not get the benefit of play-action that many of the tackles do for other teams across the NFL.
Certainly many fans have said the same, "Not enough play-action".
It wasn't until Rynie justified 'hating' on Jerry Jones because of a quote that any criticism started. That back and forth wasn't the result of anything constructive. It was legitimate complaining about unsupported emotional venting.
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
