Cowboys Game = Judgement Day
 
This is it boys, this upcoming game will prettymuch determine whether or not this years team can or can't make a Super Bowl run. If they go out and bomb this game, then it'll be no differant than the '06/'09 iterations of this team. However, if they go out and show poise, than we could a see a '05/'10 version of this team going into January.

This game really is important.

it's not a 'must win' situation yet, but i agree. even if they don't win they'll have to show us something, anything, to prove that they have a shot at the title. if not, it's 1 and done.

maybe tomlin should make the team watch the replay of us getting tebowed last year in the playoffs, if that doesn't make them sick to their stomachs then i don't know what else will

Cincy is the judgement day game, not this one. But it's still pretty big, just to see if Ben is really back.

We can still lose to the Cowboys and beat Cincy and Cleveland to get in.

It is a "must go out and make it a fucking game" situation. And if we tank this game like we did the Chargers game, we're done.

I agree, if that Tebowing doesn't make them ashamed, then they should be shown the door *cough cough* Bendthenfall.

agree, if they lose this game it will make the the final 2 must-wins. if they win the next 2 though, they can sit starters vs cleveland (especially ben who always seems to have his worst injuries vs the browns)

But can we do that if we get blown out by the Cowboys? Don't think so.

This game really is important.

Go back and look at all of our SB seasons - the defense was disruptive, sacking the QB and forcing TO's.

For the second straight year, we're on pace to average less than one TO per game and roughly 2 sacks per game.

That ain't going to cut it. Unless these guys really turn it up a notch, I don't see a big run out of this team. Even if you hold the other team from scoring, which they've done well, the offense can't get going if it's on 80+ yard fields the entire day.

Why show that when you have Oak, Tenn, KC, Cleveland, and SD to show them?

What do you mean "to see if Ben is really back"? He was the only reason we did anything against the chargers at all, scrambling behind our joke of an Oline watching our rcvrs drop TD passes all game long. He played fine except for the first few throws, which is typical when he starts wearing the gloves.

Let's make it simple here. If this team doesn't turn the jets on SOON, we're done.
