    Not every fan was upset with it. Only when it came back to bite us.

    Ugh. The old we'll-try-harder-because-of-something-they-said argument again. Those Giants teams beat us because of their defensive pressure, not because of anything Brandon Jacobs or Justin Tuck had to say the week before the game. And not because of anything Patrick Crayton had to say on our part. They won because they were a better team, and we'd be better off just accepting that for what it was.

    Not every fan ever feels the same way about things, but the overwhelming majority wanted him to shut his mouth, even before it came back to bite us. I know, because I was right there saying that it's play on the field and not the bulletin board material that matters, anyway.

    Or fold like they did against the Saints.

    Out of curiosity, what do you think would happen to the Giants playing in NO right now? You think that would be a close game?

    Much closer than the Cowboys. They didn't just lose that game, they got embarrassed. Actually, that's not true. In order to be embarrassed, they would have to actually care in the first place. That performance does not suggest that this team cares at all.

    I expected this typical response from this group of Cows.

    You're reading too much into that performance. Once we decided to play zone against Drew Brees with no pass rush, there was no option for winning that game short of Romo keeping pace with Brees on the road against a much better defense. That was never going to happen. We didn't show a lack of effort. We showed a distinct lack of talent. That unit just plain didn't stand a chance in that game once Lee went down. With Ware hobbled and Hatcher out, too, there was zero pressure. With our S's banged up and our other press CB on the bench, there's no way we were isolating Webb alone against that offense. It was zone, with no pressure.

    The Saints would dismantle the Giants in NOLA, too. I have no doubt of that. It might not be as bad as the Cowboys butt kicking was, but, as I said above, we were uniquely vulnerable. The only real surprise in NOLA to me was how poorly our offense played against a unit we should have been able to move the ball against.

    What's the point in talking trash and then losing? Its a bit cliche but i'd rather they do their talking on the field.

    Guys were running wide open down the middle of the field all day, there was zero resistance. Zero. It was a joke and I'm completely disgusted with the total lack of passion this team shows on both sides of the ball. They have no will, no fight, whatsoever. Hard to remain a fan of an organization like this.

    The only thing that matters is the Giants will punch us in the mouth, will we punch back or lay down.

    It *should* not be risqué, but it was just a few weeks ago where Dez was called everything bad under the sun because he was animated during the Lions game.

    Can't win for losing.

    I got the same sense. Cowboy players don't seem to want to engage in any bravado because they know they don't have any.

    I wish one of our star players would man up and fire back at the giants. Say "were gonna curb stomp those *****es." Or something to that extent. Nothing brings a team together more than talking smack and actually backing it up on the field. And if we do lose, start a fist fight and beat them that way. I just want to see some fire from this team. But I'll be content with just a W.

    You're so full of BS...nothing breaks team unity and the desire to mash the opposing team as a player with a bulletin board mouth. Calm before the storm. The pregame locker room ore will be full of players ready for this game and the emotion to revenge all on the field is what matters. Lets put Peirre on the bulletin board not give them BB material.

    How about we just skip to backing it up on the field? This team has done enough talking to last a life time. This year is gonna be different, the locker room has a different feel to it than last year, I really like this new defensive scheme, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah.

    Blah.
