8 of 16 games away? The NFL loves to screw us over.
Every team has injuries, the Cowboys will have injuries this year as well, so is this the built in excuse that you're going to use when 8-8 happens again?
So what if he did? If you go into a game/season knowing that you're going to lose or be 'embarrassed', I don't really don't understand how you enjoy watching. I mean really, if you're so confident that we will be 8-8 or worse and miss the playoffs, and there is no hope, why even bother watching the games?
The truth is most of you are full of it. You may come here and comment negatively on every aspect you can. You can predict a loss every game and tell us that are players, coaches, and owner sucks. You can convince yourself that you know what going to happen this season before the draft, before camp. Maybe you even 'know' what going to happen next season and the one after that. But I know, that when the season starts you will be there watching that first game. And while your watching, you are not going to be confident you know the outcome. You are going to be on the edge of you seat like every other fan, watching every play, hoping and rooting for the win.
The difference between you and I, is that I'm not afraid to tell people I'm a Cowboys fan and I don't have to follow my declaration with a sidebar of 'I know we suck' or 'we're not going anywhere' or some other dig to make sure if the worst happens you bases are covered--I don't care. For me, every season is a new season. Every game is a new game. There is always a chance until there isn't. As down as I get over this team sometimes, I refuse to let it affect my disposition. I am the eternal optimist and you may think I'm fooling myself, that I'm naive, can't see the trends, or 'just the kind of fan JJ wants', but a least I'm honest and can enjoy the season until it's over.
Being a fan doesn't mean that I have to believe that the Cowboys are going 16-0 and win the Super Bowl every year.
Let's be logical if we are going to debate bro. Don't try to feed me bs about every team having injuries. Of course every team will have injuries, that is reasonable. However what is not reasonable is having injuries to the extent that cause a 4-man position to be filled by 20 men. No team can withstand that severe level of injuries.
You can believe whatever you like, Wayne. The point is you don't KNOW.
And if by chance we do end up doing something great one of these years, I can guarantee it's going to sting b/c it will be in spite of the negativity and you wont be able to share in the joy as much b/c you'll be too busy backtracking.
So seeing as how I don't expect us to lose 16 linemen again, the answer to your question is no I do not see any evidence that points to us going 8-8 again
Although you do make a good point, I have always found week one on the road and week 17 at home as the ideal situation.
Didn't know that the Cowboys had 16 linemen to lose last year.
Correction 12 alternatives to the original anticipated starting 4 linemen and 4 backups. Does that work better for you?
I don't get joy in watching the Cowboys lose, I know that's what a lot of you on this board love to believe, but it's just not true. I call a spade a spade.
Again, there will be injuries again this year, maybe not as many as last year, but what about the 2 years prior where the Cowboys didn't lose 12 linemen?
I didn't say you did. I don't believe any real fan does.
I really couldn't care less if anyone "believes" I'm a real fan or not. You have your opinions and I have mine.
The NFL tries to create drama where it pertains to the Cowboys. If you'd look at our last game of the season, over the last 10 years, most of them have been on the road. Lots of cold weather games to end the season, this team has been 8-8 for 3 consecutive seasons and they have more prime time games than anyone.
Are the 2 years prior supposed to influence how i feel about THIS year? If thats the case I feel we are gonna go 12-4 since we went 13-3 in 07 and 11-5 in 2009. <----- See how thats not connected?
It is connected because back in 2007, there were completely different players and an entirely different coaching staff connected with this team.
07 went 13-3, 08 went 9-7. Same coaching staff same players yet in 1 year there was a 4 game swing difference. So again they are not connected every year is different and what ive seen this offseason give me confidence that we are gonna win 10 games.
3 years in a row same result, same coaching staff, with pretty much, the same core of players. No changes have been made, and the result will most likely be the same.
It could and likey will change but 6 noon games, when was the last time that happened?
