    He plays poorly and from what I can see has a loser mentality. Mistakes don't bother him. Big smile after the game.

    If I was a coach in 1500AD England, I would farggging take out his tongue with a pair of pliers and cut it off then proceed to insert it 2 feet into his rectum.

    But if I was a GM in 2010, I cut him in worst way possible
    You included "fat arse" in your starting five, and you didn't say while colombo was out. I read just fine dude.

    As for holding calls that we don't get... On that final clock eating drive by the skins... ratliff and brooking GOT MUGGED and we got no call.

    I really hope this fires this team up. I was a 21+ point victory over chicago. And fu*k the texans.

    • I really can't get penalties in football. I know how you can avoid penalties in soccer, rugby, hockey, but not in football. Bill Parcells used to say that he didn't coach penalties. Penalties sometimes are just a matter of luck, or even the ref seeing it or not (e.g. the intentional grounding not called on Mcnabb, Rabach holding Brooking). Sometimes the limit between a holding call or not it's too thin. Even when Newman was called for illegal contact... man you see tons of those plays in a game going uncalled.
      You have dumb players committing penalties, but even the smart ones doing it, like Kosier for example. A facemask is usually unintentional, a PI is not always clear (e.g. that one on Roy Williams could have been called). Martellus Bennet block in the back, meh, a lot of those go uncalled too.
      So I really don't know how to cut on the penalties and what I mean is that sometimes it's just luck or a combination of timing and luck.
      When, well, you have the Barron type of penalties and those are inexescusable. As stated before, Davis was right there to help him.
      It was 5.30 AM here I jumped off the couch screaming and waking up the whole house for nothing.

      • It's true that penalities go missed all the time, but the Bennett and Newman penalties were pretty blatant. I do get what you're saying, though.

        Thanks BoneKrusher^

        • A Wade Phillips team that lacks discipline??? Noooooo..... hahahaha.

          Shoulda hired Shanny when we had a chance. The guy commands respect. His offense is proven to be successful.

          Wade is a genius GM playing puppet HC.

          Oh well... I'll be happy when we sign Cowher. :D

          • Anyone else pissed off at Spears? Another bad game aside.... how come he was ALL SMILES after the game? Anyone else catch that? As if he didn't give a **** about just losing. I hate him. HATE HIM!!! He looked like a happy cat saying hi to all his friends on the other team!

            • Anyway I think the defense played quite awesome. We allowed just 6 points and 3 of those came after a 15 yards penalty. I know we got just one sack, even though we should also add an uncalled intentional grounding penalty in the mix, but we pressured McNabb all night long. Spencer is a monster against the run, Ratliff was eating Rabach and the double team all the time and Jenkins was wonderful. The safeties had a good game, but last game wasn't that big of a challenge for them. I really like Sensabaugh though, he has a great range.

                No you can not read fine. You jump to conclusions very quickly.

                "Fat arse" if you read is Alex Barron because he is skinny everywhere except of his arse which is really larger.

                What I propose was this week moving the line around to cut Barron but you read into that somehow that I think Colombo is not the starter or somehow a worse player than Barron.

                Take time, breadth, read.

                With respect to non-calls on just as bad plays -- I agree. Many times that play is not called.

                  I would take one his nuts for that smile.

                  It bothered me.

                      We can't apologize for Wade or Garrett anymore. The only good thing I can say for Phillips is he manned up at the podium & took responsibility for the disaster play at the end of the 2nd qtr. -- "It's my fault..." -- when Garrett was the genius that dialed up that jewel of a play.
                      No one is apologizing. I hate em.

                      My point is though is that I'm at a loss to explain it. This has been an issue for going on a decade. This goes beyond Wade and the other coaches.
                      In war, you win or lose, live or die - and the difference is just an eyelash.

                        That's the way in today's sports world. None of these guys really care all that much. They're getting paid millions of dollars to play a game, the passion and competitive nature isn't what it used to be, and that's in all sports. Sure here and there you have those competitors, but the majority try hard but ultimately don't really care either way.

                        Especially basketball. They're the worst. Competitive nature has died in basketball.

                          Which is why the NBA is losing fans like crazy. Starting to resemble WWE.

                          But to me it all starts w/ guaranteed contracts.

                          Guaranteed Contracts destroys sport.

                          Guaranteed Contracts = Whether you Win or Lose the War you get to come home alive and to accolades.

                          • It actually is rediculous. My uncle doesn't watch sports anymore because of it. Think about it, I live in CT, the average high school teacher makes 50-70k. Let's say a good doctor makes a good 6 figure amount... that's pennies compared to the hundreds of millions of dollars these dudes make to dunk a basketball, throw a baseball, etc.

                            If you really stop and look back for a second.. it's bullsh*t.

                            Who ever decided to pay players so much in the first place. I know it's a joke, but WNBA players make about 40k, why isn't that in all sports. Lebron dunks a basketball.... why is that worth 100 million dollars? Cause other people can't do it? So what? It's blasphemy.

                            • Another thing... look at the difference in most players performance in contract years... there is factual evidence for you right there. When players have their money, they don't try close to as hard as they should.

                                B-ball ceased being a team sport a long time ago, probably when the NBA put the roster limit at 12. They only really pay megabucks to one guy, then as you say giving that bloated salaried superstar a guaranteed contract exacerbates the problem, & how many times have we seen a single overpaid superstar with his self importance destroy the entire team in both b-ball & MLB? Barry Bonds, the SF Giants & the recent Balco juicing scandal comes to mind.

                                Back to the point of the embarrassment of Sunday night's disaster. What is at the root of everyone's anger IMO is seeing all that talent compiled on a team everybody & their brother says is primed for a SB run squandered by questionable & high risk upper mgmt. decisions, then no adjustments after the half that gave the team its best chance to win. We saw a very talented but completely undisciplined team out there that committed 16 penalties. A lot of that was the repositioning of the umpire behind the QB calling all the holding penalties, but the fact remains that Barron was put in crucial spot & he came to Dallas with the reputation that should have made the coaching staff pay attn: led the league in holding calls with the Rams. And as noted they let a McQuistan brother get away while trading for Barron.

                                Granted it's not their fault that Colombo hid his knee injury & it was too late to avoid the situation of rushing him back into the lineup too soon as in Minnesota in the playoffs last January, but any scenario would have been better. There were mistakes made at multiple decision points here, & with the useless FG kicker they have in Bueller but that's another story, & the coaching staff needs to be held accountable.

                                They need to fix some things on the OL or at kicker before the Houston game or Dallas will be shellshocked on national TV again. Chicago at home is not a major worry b/c their HC is even worse at game mgmt. than the Dallas staff is, their OL is a sad bad joke, & they can't stop the run.

                                Yeah I admit it, I laughed at the memes BeerBaron posted on the game thread during the game, at some point as a fan you have to laugh at it. I thought about the Elvis Costello line after the game, I used to be disgusted -- But now I'm just amused.....
