He is far from the worst.
He is average to slightly above average.
I disagree. We lose 5 in a row and he's history.
And the answer would be yes.
Have we forgotten the example the Giants...and hell our own team...have shown us over and over again?
The season is like the ocean tide...it ebbs and flows....that is the only constant.
3-1 would be real sweet. I'd say Dallas has a 65% chance of being 3-1.
I said we needed to be 3-1 through the first 4 if we had a chance. The schedule gets real tough after that.
Chargers, Broncos, Lions, Vikings, Saints, Skins are all on our level or better
I doubt it. That doesn't happen very often where a team in the middle of the season 3 games below .500 wins their last 7 games to win the division and make the playoffs but if you want to hope for a miracle again then go ahead.
You know the division is weak when a win in week 3 puts you in the driver's seat.
These next 2 games will tell the story. If the Cowboys lose both or split then they aren't a playoff team. This is the soft part of the schedule. Being the best of a bad division doesn't make you a contender.
It's not a must win until we're a break-even team and it's around Thanksgiving. Every game is important, though.
Conceptually I get what you are saying. Literally, no, but I get you. If we lose this game it will say a lot. It will take a lot of air out of my emotional investment into this team. I expect a win, and we need to win it to make a statement and put our stamp on first place in this division. Good teams win these types of games. Teams that are going somewhere win these types of games. It will be a defining game.
Ideal yes, realistic, no..
probably close second to AFC east
If we lose to the Rams, we are staring 1-4 in the face. Heck, beat the Rams, we are still staring 2-3 in the face. We need to win this game.
It is a big game because it is the next game. They can't continue to put themselfs in a hole and be forced to fight like hell to have a chance later on.
It appears that way but it isn't, AFC east and north are the weakest and the NFCE may not have that power house team in the division like some other divisions but there is no push over game and any of the 4 teams can win the division so it's still a tough division
It's a must win for sure
That seems to change from week to week.
Every game in the NFL is a must win. Anyone who thinks otherwise is fooling themselves.
Why is everyone assuming SD beats us? The Cowboys play well against the Chargers(6-3 overall) especially in SD(4-1). Pre-season games not included.
I am not assuming that we lose, but we are unlikely to be favorites in that game.
The more games you win early, the less "MUST WINS" you have late. We should win this game. The only way I see us loosing is if JJ, Red, or Bill , come out and run the ball 50 times to prove a point. They have been blasted locally and nationally for not even trying to establish a running game. If they come out trying prove something, it could be a mess. What is a MUST? It's a MUST that we have a balanced offensive game plan. It's a MUST that we don't give Bulger all day to throw the ball. It's a MUST that we win the turnover battle. And finally it's a MUST that the coaches let Tony be Tony. Stop trying to turn him into something he's not...
