    Keith Brooking had a nice visit with Galloway and Company today...

    Brooking on GAC - April 1, 2010

    First thing. Keith Brooking is thru and thru a 'Wade Phillips' guy to the core, lol.

    That whole thing about the defense not playing well in Minny. He can't seem to admit it, but he will admit that they gave up some big plays which was inconsistent with what they were doing all season.

    I get it. He's a good guy and he's sticking up for his team. But I know and you the defense and the offense walked into Minny and stunk it up big time on that day.

    On the Hamlin stuff. So he couldn't get any flights from L.A. to Dallas between Sunday and Monday Night? LOL. Brooking isn't going to start any BS with his teammates on the radio and we all know it. I think he's genuine though in his thoughts about wanting to see the guys all be in attendance and getting ready for the 2010 season. It's the attitude of 'You are either with me, or against me'. I did wonder about his thoughts about guys missing because of contract stuff. Nothing has come out about any Cowboys missing workouts this past week because they stayed away due to issues with money, but you never know when something can come out about it. Maybe he was just speaking about NFL players in general.

    Calling out Andy Reid basically with those Eagles comments. This defense knew what the Eagles were going to be throwing out and finally they had enough good players to shut it down. Yeah, I am talking to you Anthony Henry and Roy Williams.

    Good stuff from Brooking.

    This is part of the reason that fans who consider themselves more than casual observers of the game can't stand the media. They talk too much while knowing so little.

    Why would he admit to the defense playing poorly when in fact it did not? Minnies first series was a 3 and out. They scored TDs on their next 2 series. Both on semi fluke plays. They also scored a field goal when our offense turned the ball over in our territory. But from Minnie's 2nd TD all the way to the 4th quarter, they couldn't get jack done on our D. This was a D that was playing with one of the most inept offensive showings any team put out all of last year, the decript bills included.

    You're right.

    Someone tell the Vikings those two TD's on the fluke plays don't count.

    :lmao:

    "You don't pick up and start from where you left off or where you ended." --Keith Brooking

    I wish a segment of our fans understood this concept. They literally witnessed the 44-6 loss to Philly from 2008 not matter in 2009, and still they spout 34-3 as if it does.

    Didn't Romo say something to Trotter about him shifting over before the snap. Like he was telling Trotter where to go in their defense.

    He didn't say they didn't count. He said they weren't evidence of the D playing all that badly under the circumstances. And he's right.

    You can't just point to the final score and determine how each area of the team performed on a given day.

    Dont argue, once DC thinks hes right on something no mere fact can change it.

    Yes it was the offense stinking the joint after Flo went down, yes it was the D that was on the FIELD WAY to much and just had so much thrown at it due to the poor offense. No one else is going to see it any other way.

    Man, the more you post, the more respect I lose for you. He never said that... and you are wrong. The D did not play bad that day... they had no help, lots of turnovers against them, and some fluke plays. Any D who is on the field all day will wear down. They held the running game in check and were really frustrating Farve early on.

    You need some new glasses and a better attitude

    Yep. Our coaches flat out had our guys prepared beyond the norm.

    I think the offense killed us in the Minny game. Anybody who has ever played the game will admit that momentum is a gigantic factor. And when you get the ball and drive and then miss a FG, that is a TEAM letdown and the other team seems to score quite often in response to that.

    Guys always tend to plead the 5th on the perceived contract negotiation actions of other players. That's nothing new. They mutually respect that aspect of a guy standing for his livelihood. In Ken's case, he's just a dumb ***. I'm sure Keith thinks it but the bigger man won't ever comment on stuff like that to the mediots... (like I am telling u something u don't already know)...

    The funny thing is, I think there's a fair chance Hamlin gets cut anyway, making it all moot.

    Anyway... Nice location. I just saw that. :laugh2:

    Actually, how you finish matters.

    Favre, 134 rating. Deal with it.
