Start over with 8-8 vs. 8-8 then I can follow.
(to the OP)
If one can't see or understand the difference between 6-10 and 10-6, it might be time to "regroup".
If we make it to the playoffs it matters or if we miss the playoffs but break a lot of statistical records then that means so much more on this board.
The actual difference is meaningful football between a Thanksgiving and MLK Day. I understand on a macro level that maybe there's no difference to winning games if you don't win the Super Bowl. But on a week to week basis the game is far more enjoyable.
Reaching "big time"...come on, they are not reaching, they are putting together a defense to be good for a long time. The same that every other team does. Do you think Seattle's defense just happened out of nowhere. You can say the same for them when they were building their defense, they were reaching...it takes time.
Reaching is not the word, they have methodically put together a nice off season to get this defense on track. Apparently not to some peoples liking, as complaints will happen when the water bottle overflows, or not filled enough, take your pick. But definitely not reaching.....
I guess if the highlight of your football season is the draft then I guess losing is the way to go. For me I don't know what the season will hold. We assume defense will be horrible and the offense will be great but reality is none of us know how these units will fair. I know one thing for sure anytime you hit the field the object is to win, if you are not out to win you have no bussiness playing the game. At the end of 16 games we will see where we stand hopefully that will be winning the NFC East and playing in post season.
yep,that was it. thanks.
Road to recovery maybe less than NFC Championship game but better than no improvement.
that's positive and i get it. Just very tired of "mediocrity" sometimes its necessary to take a step back to gain ground. When i read that Dallas had taken a flyer on a mostly unproven and at times troubled kid, i knew much work needed to be done.
i cant pull aganist Dallas.. its just impossible. With the cap in the shape it is 'Dead money" and needing to sign Dez ,Smith and who knows maybe Murray. The draft is about the best place to find the talent.
I don't think taking a step back is good you wants guys out there working hard and then turn around and expect full effort how do you get that if the organization is not willing to put in the effort to get players in here? Getting McClain is not a bad thing it cost Dallas little and in turn if the coaches can get him to live up to the expectation then great. It is a 1 year deal for 1 mill that is not a lot and none is gauranteed. While the draft is the best place to build and get talent it is not the only place.
This does however make me feel a little better about the trade.
Cowboys | Rolando McClain may not cost anything

Dallas Cowboys LB Rolando McClain, who was recently acquired from the Baltimore Ravens, could end up costing the team nothing. According to sources, if McClain is not on the team's 46-man roster for three games or 53-man roster for five games this season, Baltimore will not receive any compensation. The deal currently mandates that Dallas gives its 2016 seventh-round pick to Baltimore if McClain does meet those criteria. Additionally, if McClain plays half of the defensive snaps this year, the Ravens will receive the Cowboys' 2015 sixth-round pick and the Cowboys will receive Baltimore's 2015 seventh-round pick. McClain did not receive any guaranteed money in his one-year contract with the Cowboys.
It matters a hell of a lot to Jason Garrett.
6-10 and we are looking for a new head coach.
10-6 and Garrett gets a new extension.
Don't care if we go 1-15. As long as we beat the Seadongs!
Honestly, just going off your thread title, considering we have just come off 3 consecutive 8-8 campaigns, 6-10 to 10-6 matters a lot. 6-10 gets Garrett fired. Heck, another mediocre 8-8 gets Princeton fired, regardless of injuries.
Cowboys MUST win this division and get to the playoffs with a win for Jason to keep his job. Anything less would be uncivilized. <--- See what I just did there?
yes but, those teams were getting healthy and realizing the momentum at the right time. They had the talent. This team is more of a Q-Carter team except this schedule is much worse....so, no. makes sense until you realize what you are really looking at.
yep. pretty much sums er up.
The OP smacks of disillusionment with the Cowboys' plight. How could that ever happen with an organization that displays such capable management and promise for future success? OK, while the OP isn't overly articulate, the depression is obvious here.
A poor fan has given up. To the poster: take a Valium, get plenty of rest and call your favorite counselor in the morning.
the difference between 6-10 and 10-6 depends on your football preferences...do you prefer to watch the cowboys in the playoffs with a chance at a SB or do you get more excited to see the team in the top 10 in the draft with a chance to trade up ??
I'll take the SB and pick #32 please
ok...I'll take winning my States lottery and never having to work again. Both are about the same shot. ive been playing for a while now...i'm due.
