These would be the same people who complain about others and suggest nothing would change with some who dissect each aspect of the team, if the team started winning.
We are in a new era with this team now and some people need to understand that things have changed.
Gone are the days of believing every year is a possible success year. Because so many rudderless campaigns have been stacked on atop another that buying the hype is beyond unbelievable.
That isn't sour grapes, nor is it giving up hope.
It is sixteen years of muddled crapola with another year of changing the guard because the non-football guy decreed it.
Will I be pleased if this team were to get to a division playoff game?
But there are strings on that.
Did the team take a quantum leap in the foundation of the franchise wherein the talent base is evident, and the team is making talent strides forward?
Or was it a lucky season where Eli goes down to injury, the Oregon head coach finds the NFL ain't feared of his offense, and RG III has a serious lingering effect from the stupidity of Shanahan, meaning Dallas backs into winning the East because the other guys crap out, isn't going to cut it.
Put the pieces in place, have a defense with teeth, an offense that protects Romo and allows him to play unfettered of worrying about his health, and I can take a 9-7 and missing the play-offs.
Be competitive for four quarters, and not choke on success and I'm there.
