Mangini loving him some 2012 Cowboys too…

Let’s see where the Cowboys go in trying to fix the defense. Then with Romo playing QB you always have a chance to win games.

    This is my thing. The NFL is, always has been and always will be a defensive league.

    If it’s a quarterback’s league, what do you do? Knock out the quarterback. If it’s a passing game, what do you do? Shut down the receivers. Then what? Well, then it becomes a running game. And if you don’t have a line that can block and a back that can run, you aren’t going to win many football games. It’s very simple really.

    Football is blocking and tackling, running the ball and stopping the run. That’s why it’s called football. It’s not called armball for a reason.

    As far as these Cowboys go, I see them as what they are, a .500 team. They might win 9 games next season, but even if they do squeak into the playoffs, they won’t go far. They don’t have the heart.

    Love your take again Soothsayer! In my life of picking the SB winner, I haven’t been wrong very often. If I can determine who has the Best D, I’ve been right about 80% (not against the spread, straight up). That’s why I didn’t have a problem with Wade as HC when they brought him in. Now a few years later, I think we’ve learned we don’t have enough good players, especially on D. Plain & simple. Looking at our D and our schedule for next year, .500 is going to be a lot of work. I disagree on “heart”, they don’t have enough really good players, they don’t have play makers on D. They’re lucky if they can wrap up and tackle in big situations. Packers had a defense who gave up a lot of yards but were plus 25 in turnovers. We don’t get them and haven’t for years and it’s a major reason why we struggle game to game. We rarely get that short field, gift points or favorable field position coming from TO’s.
