The statement was 'where are our critics NOW', not where will our critics be after week 17. I watch 4/5 games a week, and all QB's get thumped regularly. Some think our guy is the only one who gets hit. They all do.

Fine, then you'll be fighting that battle every week as critics will come and go based on each game. I'll wait till the end of the season.

busy back peddling I'm sure, because they are the same that said the Cowboys were gonna be in the SB this year.. LOL

Cowboys? In the SB? Blasphemy!

Preach it from the rooftops MCF & QuizBoy. The day I see the Cowboys in the SB in this decade with the roster & coaching staff as it is currently constructed is the day I walk without the aid of forearm crutches. Translation: It's never gonna happen, come to fruition, or see the light of day.

I'm with Gavin on this one. They weren't criticisms, but ligitimate concerns.

Andrew is as good as we thought he would be, but the real surprise is our running game isn't as bad as was advertised.

At the end of the day we all have our arguements. Mine was lets get Vick Ballard the ball. We did that and seem to be having a bit more success on the ground giving him more touches. I know his stats don't look better than DB, but stats don't show acrobatic twists into the end zone. We also struggle stopping the run consistantly, so the Pats will be a challenge for us.

Alot of things happened this year that you can't find on the stat sheet also....

Stats don't show a struggling Luck having the pressure taken off him when his head coach was struck with Lukemia.

Stats don't show a secondary playing way better than their means.

Stats don't show Ballards acrobatic TDs.

gotta watch the games.

That's the beauty of the pre-season predictions. Everyone plays it safe and picks the teams they can most easily defend, i.e. the ones that did best last year or ones that were active in FA. And when their shallow/nonexistent "analysis" is proven wrong, they can just bill teams like the Colts as "surprises" and teams like the Panthers as "disappointments". They never have to admit they were wrong, even when someone digs up their moronic projections (like Prisco's 1-15 Colts prediction).

Why get so angry about people guessing outcomes in a sporting competition? Do you send them flowers or gifts and heap adulation on the ones who get things right? And the very example (Prisco) you mention was paraded on this very Forum because the so called 'expert' had the manners to admit he was wrong.

But you are probably correct, we should stick these '*' in Death Row.

Don't know what gave you the idea I was angry. I'm not at all. And these guys aren't *. At best you can call me jaded. I was merely trying to say that these expert predictions are silly and meaningless. Perhaps I didn't articulate my self welll...
