Why keep watching?


9 points.

That's the combined score that we lost our two games by. 
Both losses came in the closing minutes, and both times, we had a chance to hold on for the win.

But the Cowboys blew it. 
Brandon Marshall didn't bull his way thru a crowd of defenders, he ran past the keystone cops.

Eli Manning took advantage of the short fields he was given, and *still* almost didn't make it happen.

I haven't seen so many flukey plays (witten foot interception), boneheaded mistakes (offsides, defense!) and poor officiating (helmet to helmet hit on the QB not called) in I don't know when.

But, even as *horrible* as some of these games have been, we have not been blown out, and in both losses, it was spectacularly bad plays on our part that led to the losses. 
We were not dominated by any means.
In fact, remove the Cowboys gaffes, and the Gnats and Denver both get a loss. 
But that's how the game goes.

I look at the Gnats, and though they cruised thru 4 other teams very easily, it took the Cowboys spotting them free points and some last minutes heroics to win that game. 
Now that all the trash teams are out of the way, let's see how they do in this 6 game grinder that is on their schedule.

I look at our next 6 games, and while not easy, we do at least have a good shot at a 4-2 split.

I think that by the end of November, we will find that the Cowboys are not as bad as they appear, and the Gnats are not as good as they appear.

I still think the last game with Philly will be the "Brawl for it All" in the East.
