So you see, to blame Drew for any of the losses is to make other assumptions (ie they would have won in OT vs Seattle), or to expect a 6th game winning drive. Drew led them on a FG drive (kicked at 4th and 1 on the 3) with 3 minutes to go vs. Seattle. The Defense gave up 22 yard pass, 22 yard pass, 22 yard interference penalty, 11 yard rush, 13 yard pass, 1 yard TD pass.
Seattle never had a 3rd down on that last drive. The Defense gave up 10 points in the 4th quarter. Yes I blame the D, but second to the missed FG (Seattle hit 55,50, Dallas missed 34)
how about we blame the whole offense for not executing enough to give the D any leeway to screw up? like not giving the D a big enough lead to work w/, minus the Washington game
see, this is what I hate about people like you, since you just root for a single player, Drew Bledsoe, when something goes wrong, all the blame is placed on other areas, and none on Drew whatsoever, although there is blame to be placed, not all of it mind you, to compensate for your ardent support of him, Drew
you come in here everyday, getting on the Drew bashers, but in the end, you become a basher in your own right, a D basher, just putting all the blame on just one area, when there's more to go around, in a way, doing the same thing you are so against people bashing Drew
