    Mental errors, discipline and turnovers were areas we as fans were told would be cleaned up and improved. That has not happened and that is my issue with this coaching staff. Add to that the fact that Garrett looks lost running a game and you have a mess. We are still trying to crawl 2.5 years after we should already be running. I think many agree with me. I'm sorry, It's not asking a lot to expect coaches to make sure fundamentals are a given. We should be way beyond the stage this team is at right now.

    Yeah, turnover differential has definitely cost us games and is a bigger deal than clock management.

    I'm just pointing to clock management as something that really has nothing to do with our inferior talent...that's usually something you can blame directly on the coach.

    The way I see it is that we just don't have time to sit through Jason's growing pains. Romo's years are getting wasted, and considering how tough it was to find a quarterback after Aikman, it might be years after Romo's done before we have another legitimate shot at anything substantial.

    I don't think they stunk at Baltimore or Atlanta. Teh went down tot he wire in both games on the road vs two Super Bowl contenders. That is not stinking by anyones definition.

    As for the others, it probably depends on how you define "stunk".

    I'm about as big a Garrett fan as we've got (I think), and I'll admit the clock management and red zone offensive efficiency are obvious problems. I just think people overestimate their importance. I also happen to really value the process and the methodical way he's approached building the team.

    What's weird is we're on a two game winning streak with another winnable game coming, and the frustration with the HC seems to be getting louder rather than quieter.

    Posting outlandish opinions and comments just to get people riled up. Very definition of a trolling right there. I'm sorry, but you can't tell me you've watched this teams performance week in and week out and you "love" what you see. Your act is transparant.

    There's no act. I've seen every game. There's a great function on this site you can employ. I've said nothing outlandish.

    You'd expect him to be more disappointed after today's victory, huh? It's weird. Thanks for being there to bring us back down to earth.

    We are now to the point that taking a 2-7 team to OT to win is something to rejoice and defend.

    Sorry, I expect more from this team than you, it appears.

    Don't care, won game.

    You expect more from the team than I, and yet you're the 'realist' and I'm the one who wasn't disappointed this afternoon. Funny how that works.

    :laugh1: sure thing buddy. I totally believe it's not an act. Jason is a "great" coach. And I'm sure you really really really "love" what you're seeing from this team on Sundays. :laugh2: :laugh1:

    Agreed. I guess a detailed analysis of these "good things" is not forthcoming because there's simply "no there, there"

    qft. this team, best case scenario, is 1 and done in the playoffs. 8 and 8 is more likely. maybe 9 and 7. our OL is horrible.
