Ok here I am. And to quote Mr. Fox from Pulp Fiction" "Before all start Suc....." well, you all saw the movie.

This is what I take away from this. We won in spite of ourselves. Period. Nothing to gloat about here. We faced a 3rd round rookie QB, that just happened to burn us for a 50 yard TD, and took them down to score to make it a 1 score game. Our defense dropped more INT's than it made and should have had more than that, thanks to the continuing penalty party we are having.

Now, there is some reason to celebrate. The NYG lost today and have the Packers next week. They also have a very trying schedule the rest of the way. We have 5 out of 7 at home. We will be getting Murray back, some day, and we have a better divisional record than the NYG.

Case in point, and I can't believe the words are coming out of me mouth, we have a legetimate shot at the playoffs. To what point and purpose? I have no idea. this team makes wayyyyyyyyy to many mistakes to even consider competing at that level in the "tournament" to quote the Tuna.

But I didn't see anything except a rejuvinated Felix Jones, yeah...he looked good, and the continuing emergence of Carter.

Claiborne better have 3 picks in the next 3 games after this performance. And I will tell you all something else, upcoming teams are going to watch this footage and guess who they are going to go after???? (Hint: he was drafted in the the 1st round last year costing us 2 picks, a 1st and 2nd.) That's right, Mo Claiborne.

You see, this is when you will find out if he was worth the picks. Knowing other teams are going to target him now, he should know his assignments and step it up and make some plays. Time will tell.

yup... slam is the only one of the delta bravo group man enough to post after a win.


Just like you are the only one of the cork soaker group to post after a Dallas loss. Interesting.


I am as negative (I prefer grounded) as anyone and I am here rain or shine.

Apparently being grounded is frowned upon in this establishment.

Can we just celebrate while it lasts?

Celebrate and enjoy the win over a hated rival, on the road no less. Just don't get too ahead of ourselves. This team is schizophrenic and we have no idea what type of performance we are going to get week to week. All the more reason to enjoy the wins I guess. Any time you can get a special teams and defensive TD good things should happen. It was nice to see the ball bounce our way on Carr's TD for a change.

Feels like a classic Cowboy build up for failure but it really is still possible, especially this year with no team really looking dominant. That said going on a run with this oline would be one of the greatest accomplishments in NFL HISTORY! Doubt it but I'm hopeful....

Part of the problem with celebrating wins is what happens the following week: the inevitable letdown loss. Have you already forgotten what happened in Week 2 when we spent more time celebrating than we took preparing ourselves mentally for our next opponent and working to correct the mistakes made in Week 1?

Being happy with the win is perfectly fine with me. I'll never be unhappy with a win against the Eagles. But, keep things in perspective: it's 1 of 16 games. We need to spend more time working to improve the mistakes we made in this game rather than reveling in the win. Because if we don't work to correct the mistakes, we will repeat them, as we've seen week after week, year after year. A team should always work to improve after a loss, but it should work even harder to improve after a win.

But players behave exactly the same way. So, yelling "NEWSFLASH!!!!!111!!1!!1one!!11!!" means nothing.

Freakin Fantastic win today. On the road against a division rival who we tend to suck against. I don't care if they had given up on the season, no one here can tell me they didn't give it their all to beat the Dallas Cowboys. Awesome, awesome win.

Best part: Zero turnovers

Oh, I dunno...because they celebrate, too? Did you not read Jerry's comments after Week 1 when he told the team to take MORE time to celebrate the win over the Giants? How'd that work out for us?
