    cannoball44...

    I didnt view your post as whining or crying. I saw it as you venting and explaining where you stand with this franchise- and what you expect and don't expect next season.

    I thought that was clear... but it seems less mature posters are intent on practicing their Picture pasting, rather than contributing sincerely to the forum. but it takes all types, so no hard feelings.

    Trust me, there WILL BE EXCUSES from the Pro Romo crowd, the pro Garrett crowd, and the pro Jones crowd.

    Death
    Taxas
    And Romo excuses

    I won't be here making excuses because I strongly suspect the team will be 8 and 8 or worse next year. This is the least amount of faith I've had in the team since 1989. I would love to be wrong. I'll roll my eyes especially with the "We were adjusting to a new defense." The truth is we pulled our D coordinator without giving him a reasonable time frame to succeed. It was a lot like how Al Davis treated Mike Shanahan. There's just very little to suggest that Jerry Jones has a good plan to build a winner. Will I still root for them. Yes, I will. It's just gotten to the point where I don't hold my breath anymore.

    I suspect if Romo doesn't get us to the playoffs and win at least one playoff game, he'll be gone. I think Quincy Carter has a nephew who Jerry has his eye on.

    You left out relentless Romo bashers too!

    Any bad game will equal at least 5 loses. Can't leave that out

    There, that's better

    well clearly you and the other posters will have to agree to disagree

    in the meantime, you should probably stop posting in it and sending it to the top if you feel it fails so badly in your eyes.

    the rest of us will keep discussing the garrett eras and what we feel are lateral coaching moves, and redundant personnel moves.

    Jerry's changes always come with built in excuses Change coach....couple year adjustment process. Change scheme...couple years to get the right players. Change venue...couple years to get fans to cheer loud at appropriate times... It truly is like he hoping to catch lightning in a bottle and all the while dangling the bait just out of the reach of the fans just hoping for a bit more from such a storied franchise.

    What kills me is the reactionary need to perform complete overhauls. I didn't love nor hate Rob Ryan although one thing I hated was it seemed any time we scored, the other team would always march right back and score immediately. I'm not sold on Garrett just yet either but it seemed to me that progress was being made and maybe with the addition of some key O-Line positions and maybe another impact player on defense that we would be very competitive.

    Now we go to a bend but don't break Tampa 2 which will require additional players as well as hoping some of our current players are suited for such a D. One thing that would be a nice change is the turnover ratio because it was just really abysmall this year, but I'm hoping it won't come at the expense of the O-Line. Either way I'm hoping for the best but thinking it's gonna be much of the same

    Can't we all just get along? Can't we all be friends? We have a common bond...we all love the Dallas Cowboys. We just all handle these tough times differently. Far as I know, there isn't a right or wrong way to go about it.

    Its 0232 hours here, I start work in less than six hours, yet I cant sleep. This franchise is driving me nuts. But I try not to take it out on others...even when dadymat tries to provoke me. :lmao:

    there will always be excuses with this regime and certain segment of the fanbase. luckily i believe that small (yet vocal) part of the fanbase is shrinking by the day.

    At some point, in the not-too distant future, we'll all be unhappy and complaining all the time for a lot of reasons about our chosen dedicated passtime. That *will* be a lucky time for us.

    I can't wait. How can I help make it come sooner, do you think? Somebody already took the idea for a preemptively complaining about next season thread. "I Won't Tolerate Explanations in 2014," maybe? There must be something I can do to do my part.

    Hopefully this team will do something it hasn't done in 16 years, win and make it's fanbase collectively happy and proud for once. Then we'll all get along and not have to worry about all of these preemptive strikes.

    Isn't that what JJ did with Jimmy? He caught lightning in a bottle and has been trying to replicate that "plan" for years. I always said that success came too easy for Jerry and he didn't appreciate how hard it is to win in this league. He doesn't respect the building process from a GMs perspective and the amount of time it takes.

    You just rocked my world with that one. I could see our two personnel idiots thinking that way.
