    There was plenty of it after 2009. I remember it. It just didn't matter once you see a guy lose the way he did.

    :bow:

    These terms are really meaningless when it comes down to it. You can be consistently bad at something. Hitting your head against the wall consistently thinking it will eventually break is stupid.

    You remember that from back in June 2012, you know, when you joined?

    And, for the record, I wasn't a fan of the Wade hire at all, but I said the exact same thing when Wade was here. Consistency in coaching matters. Though you do also need the right coach.

    Do we really have to go through this again? I've been 'reading' this forum since 2005 and posted way back in 2006 under a different name, which I already explained.

    I guess so, it's news to me. So...this is an approved duplicate user account for an account that was in good standing previously? And you just had a 6 year posting hiatus because you're naturally shy?

    To your point, I'm sorry if I somehow missed your previous explanation, but you probably should expect to get called out if you're going to make incorrect statements about takes that occurred on the board at a time before your user account existed.

    Coaches coach, players play....

    If the coach comes up with a lacking game plan, the players are going to execute using that lacking game plan. So yeah, coaches coach and players play, but it is all reliant on competent coaching.

    consistently good is what is needed
    consistently bad is not good

    just being consistent should not be looked at in a vacuum, just because one is consistent means nothing

    This is one of those '100% accurate, probably didn't really need to be mentioned' things. But, yeah, I agree that we should avoid being consistently bad. Or even inconsistently bad, if we can pull it off.

    Bad is never a good thing, and I think we can believe that fairly consistently.

    We have posters that live off of this.

    I have seen lengthy posts that could be described like that.

    Their posts are true, but painfully obvious.

    Then everyone falls all over them telling them what a great post it was.

    when blindness and excuse-making are the norm and cliche-riddled speeches are lauded while results are largely set aside

    then sometimes the obvious needs to be stated

    I'll be eagerly awaiting your 'interceptions should be frowned upon' thread. :)

    Of course, it is always easier to outcoach someone when they are the TV....

    I don't think that poster is going to reply to you.

    If you look at "total drives", you'll notice that we also had fewer drives than all but 5-6 teams. That will contribute to lack of scoring.

    I couldn't agree more... he represents the Cowboys, NFL and Fox well with his intelligent analysis. And he's always been great in the community as well.

    no, his offense did not execute, period. Now if you had said this about Rob ryan I agree 100%

    yeah, they did, you just conveniently forgot about it. Wade is a bum as a HC but as a DC he is very very good.
