    Chalk this one up on me man.
    That is fine.

    I will say this about the #31/#35 thing at the end of the half -- it gave the Giants confidence. Their play was poor and the D Coordinator kind of sat there like a victim. But your O had lots of opportunities to pull away in the second half COMFORTABLY and did not.

    Also a key confidence related issue, it was the Offense winning games all year in the second half. The fact they could not win the game when the D played ok is what is surprising. If I am there as a player and coach I am saying -- what the hell is wrong with the O? It was like your team strength was taken away so you where no at good overall.

    OT: I found it strange that last year the Offense was blamed for many of the Cowboys short comings when it was really the Defense that blew up that team's chemistry. This year just the oppositte. To me the D played fine all season with no major breakdowns but Offense really blew the wheels off the vehicle in December and January.

    Yet in the media, seems to talk it up the other way. Crazy talk.

      The D played fine all year? Give me a break. They ranked OK in certain aspects of the game but were nothing outside of average.

      They gave up way too many points and had plenty of non-factors. Bradie James is overhyped for 1. Ayodele, Spears, and Roy are all just warm bodies. and Jacque Reeves was the worst CB in the league.

      Honestly, I thought this was Rob, but I am no longer positive. Support for the D and Roy Williams and Jacque Reeves? Pretty sure it's Rob just trying not to act like Rob (For the record I want rob back, I agree with a lot of what he says, and we can stop reading "you guys" and go back to "we") but come on. You are spitting out idiotic nonsense.

      The offense carried this team. 2nd highest scoring Team in the league. The defense was 13th in points allowed and 13th in passing yards allowed.

          Usually saying something is "Fine" is fairly close to saying "Average." If I had chosen outstanding I can see the vitriol.

          Regardless, I think this is missing the central point.

          It was you Offense that cost you December momentum and Playoffs in 2007. It was your Defense that cost you in 2006.

          They were 9th in the league. Eliminate NE and the numbers are really good. Heck NE was the "greatest ever" so you can refer to it as an anomaly. W/O NE 18 PPG is very respectable. Dare I say fine.

          Your D played fine in 2007. It did not cost you a game in 2007 unlike it costing you games in 2006.

          Kudos to Wade for that.

          And what idiotic nonsense is that? Looks like a lot of name calling with no real substance.

          Roy is a 4-3 safety, not a 3-4. Reeves is Dime Corner. Wrote that well over 2 weeks ago in another thread.

          With respect to the GMen game, I said the coaches blew it by having them play the same side of the field. A few of the similar names came out swinging ... as usual .... and today the collective moved around to a new position (same one I noted on gameday) and PO'ed about a loss form 4 weeks ago..

          Not saying you have a great defense or that they even played great. What I am saying is they played FINE all season. Well enough to win all 4 December games and the January game.

          Telling me Philly, Redskin and GMen losses are b/c the D played bad?????? Um, no.

          It was your "Pro Bowl" Offensive roster that blew it in December and January. I just can't even see the debate on this point. They scored a max of what 17 points in those 3 losses?

          All good dude. Don't get your knickers in a knot. But the O stunk it up when it counted. Looking for people to blame -- start with the OC and work backwards.

            What if I were to say the D shouldn't of given up a momentum changing touchdown before the end of the half. Maybe that was the reason for the meltdown.

            This D is not what it should be. The offense can't come through every week. No offense can. Not even the pats.

              That was one drive and based on that you rake them over the coals for an entire season at 13-3? There is always room for improvement but sheesh ...........

              I heard an interesting interview with Michael Strahan who said the Cowboys loss to the Eagles (7 Off points was it?) gave the Giants confidence they could beat the Cowboys in Irving. He went on to say they knew had a better D than the Eagles and a better O. So if the Eagles D could dominate the Cowboys Pro-Bowl Offense in Irving the GMen could do it too. He further added, the GMen beat the Eagles up twice so more the reason for faith. Lastly, he felt the best team they played in 2007 was the Cowboys but the Gmen wanted it more.

              Moving along, your 2007 failure is a direct function of your "Pro Bowl" Offense failing in December and January and last year the D was to blame. YET, it is twisted irony that the D is blamed for this year and the O last year. Really just crazy talk

                    yup...good signing to get the ball rolling. I was a little surprised it was for 5 years but, it's good to have that stability.

                    • Colombo is lobbying for Flo to stay:

                      Colombo: Flo must stay!

                      Cowboys RT Marc Colombo's never been known for making outlandish statements. In fact, he doesn't say a lot publicly at all.

                      So when he says something, you listen. And his words were particularly strong this morning at the Michael Johnson Performance Center, when he was questioned on the importance of keeping prospective free agent and his bookend Flozell Adams on board.

                      "Show me a better tackle," Colombo said. "I think he’s the best pass blocking left tackle in all of football. I’m hoping they do (re-sign him), because he’s a good friend of mine and it keeps the offensive line together. He’s the only one now that’s free. If they can sign him, it’s huge."

                      There remains the option of slapping the franchise tag on him. The deadline for that is a week from today. The cost would be a one-year, $9 million tender.

                      "He’s an unbelievable left tackle and I think he had one of the best years he’s ever had here last year," Colombo added. "He has plenty of years left, and he goes out every week and shuts down unbelievable defensive ends. That’s all you can ask for in a left tackle."

                      Another benefit would be keeping the starting five intact. Continuity is crucial along the offensive line, with players' ability to work in concert with each other vital to the group's success as a whole.

                      "It’s invaluable," Colombo said. "It’s unbelievable to keep what you have and just be able to build on it. People leaving or signing somewhere else, it adds a different chemistry. I think we have the right mix and the right chemistry now to do some pretty good things."

                      Ideally, Colombo would like be part of that for more than just next year.

                      The two-year deal he signed last spring expires after 2008, so that's no certainty. But the best situation, he thinks, is the one he's already in.

                      "I’d like to have them put an investment in me for the future and I want to be around for, obviously, the new stadium," he said. "I feel like as an offensive line, we work really well together and I don’t want to be moving around again. I want to be here."

                          I'm happy to hear that Columbo wants to be here for the long run. I do realize that he'll want a handsome contract though. It'll be interesting to see how we manage our cap and what happens with Marten.

                            Continuity is critical, but so is having a vision for the future and continually looking to improve. It's all about pushing the right buttons at the right time.

                            • I don't think Colombo will stay on the team after his contract expires... Even he continues to play well, Marten was picked to be our future RT. We spent our second pick in the draft to get him, and I think Colombo will ask for big money...
