    Very true- problems exist. One or two fixes will not do the trick.

    It doesn't mean attacking others is going to make anything right about it. It makes you an A...

    And you were full of crap.

    Just before the clip you showed Garrett was waving for the ref to come over and pointing to him. He then says, "Hey time out what was that, why did you reverse the call?" At which point the HL and then the referee both explain it to him. At that point they run the play clock and Romo requests the TO at 1 second.

    You cherry picked one part of a minute long sequence and focused on 2 seconds out of context.

    I am far from miserable. I would be miserable if I knew that 99% of my opinions on fixing the team was wrong. I would be miserable and blind if I supported stupidity. How does it feel when one time out of a hundred you and Jerry are right? Does it feel good to look at the lack of wins and think that you supported the dumb decisions? That would make me miserable.

    Yup.

    Jnday- How does it feel to ask me something you don't know I've ever done or not? You love to assume, don't you?
    You do that to everybody? Very nice.
    My posts are public so if you can find me blindly following Jerry and stupidity or anyone for that matter- I'm sure you can snuff it out and show it to the world an I can tell you how miserable I am that I'm doing it.

    No- I'm sure you were talking out your behind. Again.
    And again. And spewing piss and vinegar. Again.
    And again... For us all to have the pleasure of reading.
    Again. And again...


    Another great post by Heels:

    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.

    The only point you have proven is that you hate it when ppl have different views than you do. You want ppl to be positive all the time. Life doesn't work that way buddy.

    Ppl would be more positive if the team inspired optimism. But they don't. Plain and simple.

    Everyone wants to see the team do well just like you do. But that doesn't mean they have to support every move the team makes.

    For you to say this team is heading in the right direction is a sure sign tat you are a blind homer.

    Just because you like to put a positive spin on everything doesn't make you any better than any other poster. If someone says something you don't agree with, you voice your opinion on the subject. So don't be so hypocritical when others do the same. It's not the fans fault that the team doesn't inspire optimism.

    I like to read all posts good or bad so I can get a better understanding of alternative viewpoints. That's the point of a fan forum. If we all agreed on everything, it would be boring.

    Its not just the ones that left, there are plenty that would log in to see a dozen threads saying Phil Costa caused all the world's ills up to and including cancer - and never bothered to start posting in the first place. I've posted on the DMN forums going back the 90's when the first one got shut down by the FBI because of a death threat.

    The best advice (for all, not directed at you) was a guy named Mr Bill that used to post on DMN. He used to say "I'll write what I want to write, you read what you want to read". I get fans that have a pessimistic outlook but I don't get how so many people with a burning desire to crap on anything and everything all congregated on one web site.

    Going to the OP, I think the decision on Garrett is made Sunday.

    I think they resign Hatcher, Waters and Spencer, plus add a DT and good backup LB in FA. The DL will be greatly improved with fewer injuries and having guys like Crawford, Bass, Selvie and Hayden in backup roles. I think Ware stays on a restructured (down) contract.

    In the draft they take a DL and OG in the first two rounds, plus depth at LB, CB and OT.

    The main issue next year is improvement coming from the normal development seen in 2nd and 3rd year players with guys like TWill, Escobar, Harris, Leary, Fred, Parnell, Harris, Crawford, Bass, Wilber, Holloman, Wilcox, Heath, and Carter.

    Wrong again. That happened AFTER he tried to call timeout. He walked up, tried to call timeout, Romo stopped him..THEN he called the ref over and said something to him.

    If you're hankering to get embarrassed again I can post the entire clip when I get home later.

    lots of moves but none will include an above-minimum wage free agent acquisition. Not sure of the journey along the way but the season shall end in 8-8 again. More injuries than the average NFL team once again and another failing result of an over-reliance on our 3-4 highest paid players. Last and worst, I expect the agents for both Dez and Tyron Smith to be publicly pissed off while the two players state their focus on the season letting their agents handle business matters. One for the road: draft picks 3-5 will have us scrambling for youtube to figure out these players the JJ and co. decided to draft to the confusion and dismay of draftheads everywhere.
