  • Was anyone else, like me, expecting the game to end exactly the way it did? Seriously, by the time we were up 14 late, I was watching the game with my friend who is a die hard Niner fan, and I remember saying out loud "it's funny that I'm letting myself get excited because were still gonna find a way to lose this game. We always do, always will, we have a knack for losing games that way."


    Yet sure enough it unfolded exactly like that. We find ways to lose games. Romo will shred a defense up for 3 quarters better then anyone you've seen, but in the 4th we do the dumbest things you ever see. It looked like a Wade Phillips coached team.


    Penalty after penalty in a row, throwing picks, fumbles, all jammed into 1 quarter. It makes me wonder if we will be a team that struggles to hold the lead in games with our style of play. Our offensive line will never be good at squaring up and pushing to get 1 yard in goal line situations. It's something that could become a theme.


    I'm just sick of seeing the same old Cowboys. The Romo flack is justified. There is absolutely no way a QB should be as good as he can for the first 3 quarters, then turn into a scrub in the 4th. He's supposed to get better then, not worse. I've just seen this story before with us too many times, very upset to show that another year in the books, and were still the same team that chokes games away.


    The INT didn't even make sense. Even if Dez wasn't running, he was never open, Romo threw it right to Revis.



    Also, how long did we plan on leaving Sean Lee on LT? Was there no scheme change we could do, or were we fine with the same crap on 3rd down to get a 1st down? This loss had nothing to do with our CB's, makes me sick that Rob Ryan called a brilliant game and we choked it away.

      The Felix TD after the Lee INT was run to perfection. We NEED to take angles like that in short yardage situations. We just don't have the size/power to beat up on a team like the Jets mano a mano and run straight ahead.

      Sean Lee!
      Sean Lee!
      Sean Lee!

      Bruce Carter??? Next year??? GTFO. lol. What a waste of a 2nd rounder.
      He's probably one of the best athletes at ILB you'll ever see. Your a fool.

        Don't worry, he won't wake me up until next year. Where as most other teams are getting more out of their 2nd rounders. ...and if we have to wait till next year, then hell... I'd be more for drafting Burfict than wondering if Carter is any good.

        • Why trash Bruce Carter before you even see him play? We have a very smart ILB with Lee, and one with physical tools in Carter. Ideally they contrast eachother beautifully. I figured we would want to at least let him be healthy before trashing the pick. Him not being ready right now doesn't make it a bad pick.


          Nice to know we have a find in Lee though, his instincts and smarts out there are amazing and they always help to put him in the right place. Also it's not brought up much but he's a VERY good athlete for the position. Lovin' what I'm seeing.

            I know you thought you were clever coming up with a new account and acting big and tough, but you gave yourself away the moment you told me to "shut up" in your 1st post on the forum with that account. You keep throwing out these personal insults and I'll ban you.

            Oh and btw, it's "You're", not "Your". *shaking my head* ha ha ha.

              When Metsox made a response to someone saying, do you really expect the Jets to score 17 points with 10 minutes left? (when we were up by 14) I felt so tempted to respond to that, but I held my tongue. lol. I never feel safe with leads against good teams...that's not even just a Cowboy thing for me, though. South Carolina unravels at the end of games as well.

                  Yea a WR. As in, the most dangerous WR in the NFL. We saw Larry Fitzgerald dominate in the playoffs a few years ago to get his team to the Superbowl, and I project that Dez will be a bigger gamebreaker than Fitz. The things that he appears unstoppable at; run after the catch, the jump ball, etc. are qualities that directly relate to scoring points. He has the ability to score on any given touch and will win almost every jump ball battle. He's almost like a Randy Moss-Terrell Owens hybrid, he has the strengths of both of their games.

                    Because of the time it takes to see his ROI. Because I think ILB is one of those positions where I think rookies can make an immediate impact. Which makes the wait even worse. Because I think next year's ILB class is inifinitely better than Carter. Because he's undersized. Because I think our staff fell in love with his special teams abilities and overrated him. Because I don't think he's a 1st round talent that fell to Round 2. I always saw him as a Round 2 talent. Not like this is some talent like a Jerod Mayo who surprisingly fell in our laps. Because I think he's a 4-3 LB. Because his college stats are unspectacular. Because we passed on A TON of other guys who could be helping us right now. Because this reminds me of Jason Williams all over again. I could go on and on...

                    If he ends up being more than our nickel LB, I will be surprised.

                      I kicked myself after that, cause Plastico scored like two plays after i posted. Either way, i was referring to the spread, so if you got a last minute bet in, the Cowboys still won you money with the points, lol.


                      Also, did anyone else notice that Dez kinda hobbled up after his one punt return? I really think that's where things took a turn for the worse for him.

                        Yeah, they said he got hurt on that 1st quarter punt return, and he battled cramps all game, that's why he was in and out so much. Got an IV and all that good stuff. He has a bruised thigh. He'll be fine, but the nagging injuries are incredibly disappointing for Dez right now. He is never at full health.

                        • Honestly, after seeing my first full Rob Ryan game I think Carter is the perfect ILB for this defense. Versatility is invaluable in this scheme because it's all about confusion, and Carter has the athletic ability to do whatever it is you ask of him. Blitzing, coverage, heck you could probably line Carter up at safety to confuse teams and even let him play deep middle from time to time. He's a tremendous athlete and I kind of get the reasoning behind the pick now.

                          You kind of have to throw everything you know about the conventional 3-4 out the window with Rob, his D is nothing like that.

                            LOL. This doesn't even upset me. It only makes me laugh.

                            Don't worry, I won't ban you unless you bother other posters. I won't even infract you.

                              What makes you think he's good in coverage? Line him up at Safety?

                              The dude has 0 pass deflections in 4 years at UNC. Did he try to do that? I mean even a terrible player could get at least one. Why do I hear people talking about how good of a coverage guy he is? Because of his 3 INTs in his entire college career? Jeez I hope not. That's relatively a pedestrian number... definitely not something to gloat about. Most solo tackles he's had in a season? 49. What a big wowzers, eh?. How many forced fumbles did he have in 4 years? 1. Does that sound like a playmaker to you?

                              If you love him so much, give me a reason to join you.

                                Well, it's impossible to know at this point but I do think you're one comment about him being undersized is a bit misleading. This was a kid that was a QB/S prospect coming out of HS. He's still growing. I think it will be fairly easy for him to play around 240. He's less than 10lbs from Brooking's playing weight.

                                I also question your comment about his stats being unspectacular. What would you consider spectacular.

                                You mentioned the name Mayo; let's compare their college stats:

                                Mayo - In 36 games at Tennessee, Mayo started 24 contests. He recorded 236 tackles (137 solo) with six quarterback pressures, 6.5 sacks for minus-51 yards and 21 stops for losses of 82 yards. He recovered and caused a fumble, as he deflected three passes and intercepted another for a 34-yard touchdown return.


                                Carter - Carter started 44-of-49 games at strong-side outside linebacker for North Carolina...Recorded 215 tackles (145 solo) with 9.5 sacks (70 yards) and 24.0 tackles for loss (115 yards)...Caused and recovered a pair of fumbles...Deflected nine passes and gained 162 yards with two touchdowns on three interceptions...Blocked seven kicks (six punts, one field goal) and returned four blocked punts for a total of 31 yards (7.75 avg.)...Carter's seven total blocked kicks established a school career-record...His five blocked kicks in 2008 tied the Atlantic Coast Conference season-record...His three blocked punts vs. Connecticut in 2008 are one shy of the NCAA Football Bowl Subdivision game-record of four...His two interception returns for touchdowns tied the school career-record.

                                Again, it remains to be seen if he amounts to anything and I agree that it would sure be nice if we had that 2nd round pick playing and contributing right now. But let's tap the breaks a bit.
                                In war, you win or lose, live or die - and the difference is just an eyelash.
