I’m sure you’ve heard that phrase before, I just couldn’t help but think of it as I read the comments after last game vs the Patriots. We as fans will go through highs and lows during the season and will direct blame to something, someone to get our frustration out. Let’s think about how we got to where we are for a minute.
First off, there was no offseason (no minicamps, no OTA’s, no offseason conditioning program, etc). Add the streak of injuries this team has endured and it’s no wonder we are sitting here at 2-3.
We can all make the argument that we can be at 5-0 or 0-5 but the fact is that we are 2-3 and by all accounts past the toughest part of the schedule. Remember, with a new HC, not only new but a ROOKIE HC at that, new DC, a rebuilt OLine and a rookie kicker as well.
We are all here at BTB to express our opinion on how we feel about our Cowboys, I’m not an apologist nor a hardcore realist (no pun intended Larry) I’m sort of in between, I have tried to temper my expectations for this year based on the facts stated above. Some people are already saying that we need to dismiss our rookie HC and some point out to the execution as being the problem.
And that brings me exactly to my point, there are more games to be played, more ups and downs for us fans, more injuries to be concerned about and we’ll be back here at BTB to express those feelings, after all, football is a game of emotions. And such is the life of a fan.
