You can talk playoffs all you want but for many years this team has shown no resemblance of making any improvement from Nov to Dec to Jan under JC as OC and HC. Call him "book smart" but he has no offensive strategy for second half seasons and it's beginning to occur once again. Opposing D coordinators thrive on JC's offense simply because he's so predicable and has no clue of how to use his talent. He plays not to lose which is disheartening. He's only been succesful because Romo gunslings his way to vicories by the hare of his chin after JG trashes the original game plan and lets Romo run a muck all over the field.
The cowboys for years have played this trend and it's so apparent they lack the fortitude and understanding of how to build a winning team.
Certainly it's at the hands of their GM who buys a few talented players however is too demented to pick the overall talent and coaches to take them above par. Watch the games and the consistent contenders in December and you'll note they have 2nd string talent and coaches who adjust and readjust to give their teams a chance to win. NYG will come back around and win this division because that is their DNA and they have the coaching and player mentality to suck it up late in the year and to win, not playing to lose.
We are nothing but a subpar team with a few good players who are actually pretenders in the end. We are the flea circus with a ring leader who's clueless about talent and too egotistical to see beyond himself as the ulitimate problem. Don't give me " hes a 3 time SB winner", those are obviously JJohnsons.
A contending football team is well coached team that will show eventual improvement in the second half of the season. We have not see that since Bill Parcells and won't see it until we get a leader in the coaching position and JJ eventually seeks a GM partner to provide him a clue.
