    Bad coach, trash heap assistants, mediocre GM, and contracts signed which got the Cowboys in salary cap hell. It has taken 3-4 seasons to rebound from the salary cap mess. And the Cowboys still have to deal with Dez Bryant, hopefully a pay reduction.

    We lead the league in moral victories over the last 5 years.

    Dann Quinn took over the Falcons that went 4-12, and 6-10 two seasons before he was named HC. He went to the SB in his 2nd year. It looks like the process is shorter for other teams.

    Is that what your take away was? Laughable. I thought the OP gave Dak too much credit. And you have to admit he did a bunch of ads.

    Whether or not some agree on Dak being the future or a franchise type of QB for the Cowboys. He works hard on his game and does not care more about doing commercials than he does about being a good QB. Just because he took endorsement deals, doesn't mean he spent all off season working on commercials, while not working on his skill set as a QB.

    Give me a break with the excuse that Garrett didn't inherit any talent. He inherited a team that went 11-5 and won a playoff game the year before. He inherited Romo, Ware, Witten, Dez, Sean Lee, Newman, Church, Hatcher, Spencer, and plenty of other good players (including Tyron, if you're going to claim Pederson inherited Wentz). Nobody said that team was undetalented when they started 7-4 before collapsing to 8-8.

    It's nothing but pure excuse-making for the Red Fraud.

    Guess we are hoping the 23rd year is the charm.

    The lack of aggression on both sides of the ball is such a great point. We are a reactive team, especially on defense.

    It’s downright depressing we have to go through another season with the same head coach and coordinators.

    We can’t find an opponents weakness and systematically attack it.. of course the Pats benefitted last night from the calls the first half, but in the second they just systematically kept getting matchups of Edelman and other WRs on the LBs the whole game for same crossing routes over the middle on no huddle.

    Unfortunately, At some point we’ll probably stop referring to it in such a manner it will be so long.

    At 75 it’s not likely Jerry is going to get better. I wonder if he’s going to be our GM well into his 80’s? Does he really believe that’s going to provide us our best opportunity for success?

    This streak could run for 30-40 years.

    It's time to focus on the defense. We've dumped tons of resources into the offense and yet no significant victories.

    Name another NFL team that would hire Jason Garrett to be their HC.

    QBC, okay; OC, possibly...but NO ONE’S gonna hire JG as an NFL HC, ever again.

    Jason Garrett: the Harvard man’s Wade Phillips.
