OK, I didn't have a chance to write up the Film Review yet although I actually did watch the game and take the notes. I'll try to get that up today sometime.
Wow, I didn't think posting the Mike Jenkins video would get such a rise out of a few people. I just thought it was a lackluster effort that kind of symbolized a lackluster effort by the Cowboys in the first half of the season. I like Mike Jenkins, I think he's got a bright future, heck, he was one of the guys I constantly projected that we'd draft. Really, it wasn't meant to be that big of a deal. I didn't even dog him out all that much about it.
I like this FanPost by Nelson... who says something I've been trying to say for a long time on this blog.
...but I'm at the point where I don't even want to view the comments section here anymore. You guys need to chill. Spending all day telling each other how blind and clueless they are is really getting ridiculous.
Bravo. There are a few guys, and they know who they are because I've talked to them about it before, who think this is their personal playpen to argue with each other in tiny little "comment" wars where they try to say how much smarter they are than the other guy. I frickin' hate that and created this blog for people to discuss the Cowboys in an environment that is free of that childish crap.
Look, I don't mind anybody writing about why they're mad at the Cowboys right now or any of that stuff, but when someone writes they're a fake fan for that or they should be an Eagles fan or whatever, that's pure junk. Not everybody roots for their team in the same way. On the other hand, if you want to be optimistic all the time, want to be the ultimate "homer," that's cool, too. Let people say what they want and quit telling them how they should think. You can disagree with what they write, but don't question people's motives.
It's so easy; question the message but not the messenger.
(I hate being a jerk like this but I don't want to see this blog go the way of so many forums and blogs before it have gone.)
OK, back to Cowboys stuff.
I promise to have the Film Review up sometime today. I'll also write up what changes I think the Cowboys can make to turn around this season. I'm still not positive we can do it, but I know we have the talent to do it. Whether it will happen is an open question that we won't know until we start playing again.
Usually I hate bye weeks, I love watching football, especially Cowboys' football. But this bye week is sorely needed. Not only for getting the injured guys back, but because this team needs to recharge their batteries and get their minds right. Same goes for the coaching staff. So the bye week is just fine with me.
