    If they follow it and don't win the Super Bowl, will you and the rest go away and be a blind cheerleader elsewhere?

    Because some posters see beyond the record and think the team is moving in the right direction seems to bug the crap out of the self titled realists.

    And if you don't like the positive spin don't open the thread.

    Because if you can't see how off putting it is to start or open a thread only to see the same posters throwing out the same crap every time...homers, blind, koolaid drinkers, apologists etc... then you are completely clueless. It is beyond getting old, it is draining and makes many of us not even bothering posting. For us it appears that you guys are miserable and are just going around trying to make anyone with a brighter outlook as miserable as you are.

    I have been a fan since I was 6. I have seen every SB since our first win. I have lived through the drought from 1977 through 1992 and the current one as well. The team will always be my team but I don't live or die with the outcome of a game and I will be damned if I am going to have my opinion on things walked on because it is too positive for you.

    Good posters, very knowledgeable posters have left and it is because of all the negative crap. And it is not fact, it is opinion. All things require context. Nothing is black or white.Sometimes you are not what your record says you are. Stats can always be manipulated to fit an argument. It is all opinion.

    You don't like mine, don't read it...simple as that.

    It was a good post, though I can't say I agree with his take much at all.

    TwoDeep's not afraid to put his opinion out there, though. You gotta respect that, even if you can't really recognize where he's coming from.

    In other words, if the stars align, and eveything goes right with my team we will wit the SB... What if we draft a new DL and healthy and our DL ends up sucking still?

    Some of these fans think they have more right to liking the Cowboys than anybody else on here because they like red-headed Ginger......

    I like it, the only thing I would change is that we do all this without Garrett and with Gruden as a HC, we do that we are SB contenders, we don't we should expect another mediocre 8-8 season under the worst HC in the league.

    This is a great post, this forum use to be very entertaining, enlightening and informative. Now it is just depressing to read the same posters post their negative nonsense over and over. Then they put their couch GM hats on and talk about drafting Johnny Football and I realize that they really don't know what they are talking about, know nothing about football, and just like to put on a show. What is the point in being a fan if you can't be optimistic about your team.

    What a sensitive post. People that quit posting because others don't agree with their opinions is weak. Everyone has a right to voice their opinions. Whether you like it or not.

    We're moving in the right direction? When does this finally show up in the win loss column? To me, the window is only getting smaller and smaller. Romo is only getting older and these injuries are taking a toll.

    We are not one or two players away. We've been trying to add the right piece to put us over the top the past 3 seasons. It hasn't worked.

    Positivity is fine and dandy, but not everything about the Dallas cowboys is lollipops and sugarplums right now.

    I can suffer through a couple down seasons if it means long term success.

    We need to rebuild the defense, draft a qb, get a whole new coaching staff that is innovative and can get dez the ball. Then we will be heading in the right direction.

    The negativity on this board is a direct result of the performance of the Dallas Cowboys. Did you watch the saints or bears games? Nobody but a blind homer was optimistic after those performances. We just don't have the talent. Have you seen our defense? It's just not realistic to think we are contenders. This year or next. Major changes are needed and it's going to take time to fix. I can suffer through a rebuild if it means long term success.

    It is posts like this that I am talking about.

    No insight, no comprehension.

    You immediately jump to an insult...too sensitive...cheerleader...etc. Then repeat the same blow it up, it is all bad nonsense.

    What I am saying is not one response to one post. It is the same posters responding to every positive post, in every thread, repeating the exact same thing, over and over and over.

    Thinking maybe we should just reply to every one of the realist's posts saying how dumb their post is and that they are just a Debbie Downer and Chicken Little and see what you all think after a few thousand of such posts.

    What I would do is:

    Cut Ware and miles.
    Get Carr to agree to take pay cut.
    Resign Hayden, Moore and Waters.
    Sign Tyron, Dez and Bailey to extensions.

    Focus draft BPA at d and o line, qb and linebacker. No developmental guys or injury prone guys. Guys that can play NOW

    There is a difference between constructive criticism and the overwhelming negativity that is brought into every thread and post regardless of the topic. The negativity is stifling this site and makes reading it depressing. I am not a blind homer and believe things need to change, but I will not knock people for being optimistic and derail threads to the point where the negativity is like an echo chamber.

    Trying to bully someone over wins NEXT YEAR, in a future where facts haven't happened so there are no facts is BUSH LEAGUE and just being a pissy poster.

    Just do whatever it takes to get to 8-8 again. Not too little, not too much.

    That's ironic coming from you, the guy who told me I was "full of crap" when I posted that Garrett tried to call a timeout too early against the Redskins before I posted video proof.

    You were the one immediately jumping to insults.

    I think Garrett's mediocrity has you a little too wired. Maybe you need a break from this board.

    So you and the Misery-Gang can all cry on each other?

    Sounds fun- you guys can "Cut through the crap" together. Every day.
    All day.

    Fun.

    Very good post. This fantasy that the team is just missing one or two players has produced nothing but disappointment for more years than I care to remember. The first step in fixing a problem is to realize one exist.
