    I actually think that we'll pull this one out.  Not sure why, just have a feeling.

     

    The guy covering the game is insanely awesome and has a perfect record at the Meadowlands, so that could be it, too.

    Don’t jinx it, Slappy.

    Well that fourth quarter was actually pretty fun to watch.  Peterson got a hell of a TD after being denied the whole game. 

    He had a 7 yard receiving TD in the First Half as well. ;)

  6. Final Update From Dallas

    So can we expect any offseason management/coaching changes to take place?  Most of our issues are injuries but some of it fall on management/coaching.  Thoughts?

    Thoughts? There’s 4 games left & you now focus on the Chargers. 

     

    You’ve got 2 guys on Offense that have played every game this season. Kirk Cousins & Vernon Davis. 

     

    You've got an OL that’s made up of practice squad players. 

     

    The fact that they managed to be competitive the 3 games prior, THAT also has to fall on coaching. But after an embarrassing loss, no one wants to see anything minutely positive about the coaching. It’s all torches & pitchforks due to time management.

    And what has intrigued us all more than the Dline this offseason? 

    Long term deal for Cousins. Duh. :silly:

    Quote

    Brandon Banks didn't play many snaps, only coming in towards the end of the game (along with Pipkins). So his competition was weak, as well. He had 1 (slight) win and 1 loss, while the 2 snaps accounted for were pretty much all that he did. 

    Thought he was returning punts up in Canada... :kickcan:
