    At this point, who cares. Listening to the game on the way back to NC from Miami yesterday, after Sean went down, I knew every time the Saints had the ball they would score. This defense sucks, this team sucks and this franchise sucks. Listening to Jerry psuedo-bemoan the fact that Ryan was fired epitomizes our cancer. What the Cowboys are makes me sick.

    This is the same healthy defense that gave up 478 yards to the Giants on week one and 433 yards to the Redskins on week 6, both home games. They gave up 393 yards to the Vikings. The Vikings actually had more yards than the Cowboys.

    I reserve "worst defense" in history until we get to the end of the season, but right now it does not look good.

    I dont really want to hear points scored talk the day after Payton took pity on this pathetic franchise. They could have scored 70.

    If you have to ask the question, you likely already know the answer...

    The Cowboys are currently on pace to give up 7,037 yards - 5 yards shy of the all-time record set by the 2012 Saints. They are also on pace to give up 5,008 passing yards, which would obliterate the all-time record set by the 2011 Packers.

    In the words of Magic 8-Ball: "All signs point to yes".

    Fair enough.
    I was also referring to Spencer and Crawford too, but really, every team has injuires.

    Huh?

    28th in points allowed
    32nd in yardage (20 yards per game worse than the 31st ranked team)

    Anyone want to bet we don't end up 32nd in both categories?

    Until Ryan lost Lee we had a top ten defense last year. Now Kiffie gets to see how he can go without Sean. 1st game returns weren't so pretty. New Orleans had zero punts and zero turnovers.

    They may be the worst of all time but this season isn't a total loss we still have plenty of secret sauce.

    Why would you use total points when some teams have had a bye week? We are 23rd in points/game. And we were ~15-17 before losing Hatcher and Lee last night. Take our defense and add the following Starters back too it: Healthy Ware, Lee, Hatcher, Wilcox and Claibone. Chances are we will finish up around ~20 this year.... Which would actually be an IMPROVEMENT over Ryan, with MORE injuries to the team.


    Also - it should be noted that we have played the #1, #2, #3, #6, #7 and #9 offenses so far.

    Like torching the Cowboys isnt part of the reason those offenses are ranked so high?

    It's the worst defense that I've seen in my 38 years as a fan.

    By far the worst I've seen and on pace to be the worst anyone's seen. Don't miss a game, boys. You'll be telling your great grand kids about this.

    A. It is 5 QBs who have passed for over 400 yards (I am including Brees because he was 8 yards short when Payton called the dogs off and pulled him)......He would have easily got that if Payton didnt pity us so much.

    B. Until last night, no team in the history of the game, since it was invented, had ever given up 40 first downs in a game.

    This is not just franchise setting records, this is NFL All Time records being set.................................................we are on pace to be the worst defense in the history of the league.

    Yea, I think he actually felt sorry for us.

    They could have set the NFL record for most points scored last night if they wanted to.

    By far the worst defense ever fielded by a Cowboy team.

    You arent giving them enough credit. This is the worst defense in NFL history. No team, not the expansion Bucs or Saints gave up 40 first downs before last night. That is just the tip of the ice berg.
