    The stats look good, but the record says we are average. It is the little things that are beating us. We are playing dumb.

    We are ranked 5th in Offense at 366.4 yards per game.
    We are ranked 4th in Points per game at 28 points.
    We are ranked 2nd in 3rd down efficiency at 47.4.
    We are ranked 3rd in Time of possesion at 32.28.
    We are ranked 2nd in Punting Average
    We are plus 1 in turnover diff.
    We are ranked 4th in defense at 278.5 yards per game.
    We have the 6th leading rusher with Julius.
    We have the 4th leading TD Rusher in Barber.
    We have Romo ranked 7th with a passer rating of 93.7.

    You put these things together with almost any team and I will show you one heck of a football team.

    But here is where we are getting killed.

    We are the 2nd worst team in football with 60 penalties, and yes we are DEAD LAST in penalty yards giving away 610 yards.

    We are 14th in points allowed because we give up big plays, and committ penalty after penalty.

    Game changing plays we just are not making, instead the are being made on us. Yesterday's blocked FG, The Giants Flea Flicker, The Carolina's reverse for a TD, Portis's run with the wide misdirection pitch, The Randel El reverse pass, The big bombs when Watkins was in especially in Philly.

    How the Hell is a Parcells team dead last in penalty yards in the NFL, and getting trick plays ran to success game after game? These are the differences.

    We are getting beat because of Judgement, bad judgement. WHY?

    the penalties hit the nail on the head....
    Penalties are drive killers or keep drives alive and all that makes for a tired defense...

    I think we had well over 150 yards of penalties yesterday and I have been waiting for 3 years now for Witten to stop his stupid false starts, illegal motion , etc...........

    At some point you have to ask yourself , Is the players production worth all those dumb penalties..

    Somehow, if they stop making mistakes this team can beat any team in this league. No doubt in my mine. But that's a tall order to ask.
