I have been one of the most critical posters of this team this year. Everyone from Jerry to Red to many different players and coaches. But the utter foolishness of outright saying it is an overreaction for "FANS" to have hope for the playoffs when there is still a chance shows they are only passive fans. Meaning ones who really don't have a passion for the team, just a passing interest.
Since the word fan comes from the word fanatic, you really can't classify them as fans. They would be more like an interested part time observer of the Cowboys.
If you want to criticize the team for mistakes they have made, have at it. But to criticize fans for having hope when there is a realistic chance at making the playoffs is nonsense.

and also a sunshine pumper zone as well since there are plenty of them as well
