    With two weeks to work with, what are you expecting/hoping from the team on their return from bye week? Probably not a surprise fix to our many problems.

    Hoping:

    1. A few new plays inserted into the play list. I know we're restricted with our OL and receivers dropping the ball but to me everything seems so vanilla. If we're going to go out then let's do it in a blaze of Glory.

    2. Like to see some new faces on the field, mostly receivers--Beasley,Harris, Holmes,Hanna,Phillips. Make players accountable for their mistakes and non productive ways no matter who it is. It may only take Dez and other non productive players a few minutes on the bench to realize that no longer is their half*** play going to be tolerated.

    3. Like to see another, at least one, OL on the team for the 5th game. I just feel it's hard to find anyone out there better than what we have. That's hard to believe, but like many have said why haven't they been signed by another team if they are any good.

    4. Try a few plays with two tight ends for run blocking, leaving Vickers on the bench.

    I'm sure there are others hopes that could be listed but will leave that up to the Forum. What would you hope for?

    I'm expecting the same team I saw before it. I hate to say that but that's just what I EXPECT at this point. I PRAY i'm proven wrong.

    I'm expecting to see them take on the Baltimore Ravens at M&T Bank Stadium at 1pm Eastern.

    A loss.

    Seriously. After all the reasons you'll read on why we can win, including the Ravens' performance today, we'll lose that game.

    I do think we'll keep it close though. I'd probably take the Cowboys and the points once the line is set.

    If its close then I can see a Cowboys victory. Ravens run defense or defense in general is nothing impressive. There's reason to be scared of Ngata in pass protection but Jamaal Charles had no problem carving up that defense when the defense KNEW he was going to run most of the day.

    What I'm expecting is for us to come out listless and lifeless and not do anything offensively until late in the 2nd quarter when we are down 10-0 like we always do under Garrett after a bye or a long week off. No I'm not being a downer that's just what I'm expecting. Cowboys please prove me wrong. I really would like to see me eat my words.

    A loss to be honest.

    A close, boring game that could go either way.

    I'm not sure what to expect quite honestly. This team is so damn inconsistent. You don't know what you're gonna get from week to week. Hopefully they come out play with some passion and win this football game against the Ravens. Wouldn't surprise me if they did, but what about the week after?

    This team is average and will continue to be until Jerry lets it go and decides to focus only on the business side of this organization...something he is actually good at. Maybe he will be able to find an effective head coach along the way?

    Until then there will be poor offensive line play, poor communication between Romo and his receivers, a defense that can't force turnovers, penalties and a thousand more threads about how Romo is the problem and we should tank the season and trust Jerry to find a replacement somewhere which is something he has previously proven to have trouble doing...:banghead:

    Maybe I've become a pessimist watching this team but I'm tired of being crushed by lofty expectations that never come to pass.:(

    yeah. hoping and expecting are two different things. i would have preferred for us to play at home after the bye. the ravens are going to hit us hard and see if we have the huevos to stand up to them. time to man up....

    Some turnovers, some penalties and more frustration.

    Yea man.....there isn't a better time. You just saw the NFC East look very mediocre today. The division is out there just like last year.

    They need to win. After blowing up at home on a Monday night game they need to win a road game they are underdogs in to get any credibility and chance for a successful season back...

    I'm going to guess the line will be set as Ravens -6.

    I would take the Cowboys to cover but not win outright.
