because if it wasn't for not losing 9 games in a row, we'd be 4-10

Because their problems are self-evident and capable of under-mining their chances in the post season. We all know that the intensity gets ramped up for the post season. Having a track record of success during the regular season prepares you for what you can do in the post season. It doesn't mean that you can't do it, but it sure does help. What this team has failed to do is struggle to get TD's in the redzone. Come playoff time, this weakness could be exposed.

yeah, and everyone was saying the same thing in 2008.... Everyone said the same thing about the 2000 ravens and the 2002 Bucs and the 2007 Giants.

because they have miserable real lives and carry it into their hobbies

they're lucky they're not Browns or Bengals fans or else they'd probably have killed themselves by now

a frieind of mine is a Cowboys fan -and he loves them, but he is extremely critical(as in smashed his TV -lol) of them, he constantly cuts them down this year, do u blame him.?
I often wonder myself if I'm overlly-critical, but then I go, well what is wrong with that?, we are mostly intelligent fans with brains and we love NFL football -the sport.

and Lets face it, in all these years, if it were not for all the NFL Fans in the world ?, well there would never have been any nfl Football period ! This whole enchilata, is for us.
So I say, be as critical as you want -as a fan you've already earned that right -but just be honest about it, with yourself.
Thankyou.
:)

It's because we are 11-4 thanks to the defense. We can't win in the playoffs without the offense scoring points. The pats will hang 25+ on us , we need 30 to win. The wins are great, but realize we got our ass handed to us by the pats. F#^*{} the record, to get another ring the o has to show up period.

The team in '08 played fantastic situational football all year long both offensively and on the defensive side of the ball. Those other squads all shared one thing in common, great defense.

slicer. In 08 our pass defense was either #1 or #2...not 24th...so no...I didn't feel the same in 2008. As soon as Brady went on IR, I was thinking we would win the SB in 2008.

This year, I see us getting to the championship. I'd like it if we could score. Our D will not hold up well against the pats so if the offense can score 28+ we have a chance.
