    We need to take a clue from our USA soccer gals and learn to not step off the gas, ever. Too many close games, we need to close the deal and put away the teams that we should.

    The USA soccer women were playing a team that is one of the weakest in the tournament. That sort of result isn't from not stepping off the gas or having a killer instinct -- it is what happens when you have a completely outmatched opponent and players who, frankly, need to score and be in the spotlight to make a decent living through endorsement deals because their salaries lag massively behind men.

    He may be right. The Boys do tend to play down to the level of their opponents and squeak out games that should be blowouts.

    well, if cowboys played against a division 3 team which is what Tailand is in soccer, then we would see a similar score and killer instinct.

    Bill Walsh in the old San Francisco 49ers. Script the first 15 to 20 plays. Never take your foot off the gas

    Bucs were probably one of the worst teams in the NFL last year and we played down to their level. I agree, the Cowboys need that killer instinct.

    We haven't had a killer instinct over a decade.

    Our habit of winning close games comes from our default mode of run the ball, kill the clock when we have any kind of lead. A perfect Cowboy drive takes 9 minutes off the clock and scores 7. We are rarely gonna score significantly over 30 points.

    Last time I saw the aggression was Garret’s first year as OC vs the Rams at Texas Stadium. Boys were up big and Garrett was still calling for bombs to annihilate them.

    He has been more aggressive than people would think in 4th quarters with the lead. That’s when we tend to see the most play action to try to end the game.

    Shots were there vs the Saints, just no one could connect.
