I think Nate's sort-of onto something. Although, instead of this: " When Dallas lines up for a third and one, they don't have anybody that has that attitude." I'd say this " When Dallas lines up for a third and one, they don't have everybody that has that attitude."
This issue is less that they don't have players with the right attitude. It's that there's often one player in critical situation that blows his responsibility, and the team gets beat as a result.
I think that's happening less than it used to, though. And, when it happened last year, it was either happening at positions where we were playing replacement players, or along the OL (C and RG early, and OT almost all season) where we're going to end up making some changes.
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
