    I agree w/ you LL but, as a very frequent Chargers watcher...I think they should fire AJ Smith. Guy's an ass who is completely full of himself. :) He's great evaluator but again...dude's an ass. haha.

    But seriously, like you said, it's a long season. There is still a really long way to go, we can right this ship. The Giants looked extremely disfunctional and downright awful at the beginning of the season last year. We still have time. Only real difference though, is a big one...and that is the Giants were expected to be bad, we're supposed to be the best in the league, destined for Super Bowl glory. Our team needs to forget about all that junk right now...take it a game at a time and go out there and have some fun. This team was better as an under dog or under the radar team, now that we're "supposed" to be this amazing team, they cant live up to all the hype and pressure. Seriously, they just need to forget about that and just take it week by week...just like last year's regular season.
    Eli, a nice guy, got so much better the minute Shockey broke his leg. This season he looks amazing. Shockey is our TO. Egg shells all the time unless he gets 10 catches and 5 TDs.

    Jones needs to come right out and say "Tony is our QB and no one player's performance is more important than his. Tony is the franchise. I would hope Tony gets the ball to whoever is open and best able to make plays. I could care less if the player's name is Tashard Choice or Dean Anderson. The Offense revolves around our Pro Bowl QB, not our Pro Bowl Receivers or RBs."

    Done.

    • If you dont remember...Eli had an awful season. It's not until the playoffs, did he string together a few good games and by then, the playcalling had been changed to take some of the load off of Eli. No longer was he being called upon to pass the ball 40+ times to win ball games. They established the run and things opened up for him. Their playcalling was a big reason why they were so bad not the player personel.

          The day Shockey went down Eli got better and so did the team. That team walked on egg shells with Shockey. His demeanor on the field every time Eli "missed him" was horrid. Worse yet he dropped lots of balls and still pouted as he would run off to AC to gamble.

          Go ask a GMan fan. I think it a perfect comparison to what I perceive is going on here right now.

          Everyone is telling Romo, TOTOTOTOTOTOTOTOTOTOTOTOTOTOTOTOTO........ Witten .... TOTOTOTOTOTOTOTOTOTOTOTOTOTOTO .... Check Down .... TOTOTOTOTOTOTOTOTOTOOTOTTOOOOOO and he is saying I guess you are right I need to get double covered TO the ball so let me sit back their for 5 seconds and wait while 225Lbers run all the way around Flo to get a fumble or wait 6 seconds till a DT get through to put up a floating dead duck.

          Wrong Tony. 3 step bam. 5 step bam. Double here, go there. Not one fan cares if TO catches a pass if we win and play well. Not 1.

          And fact is, that team relies a great deal on Eli now. Watch tomorrow's game and hopefully you will see what I have last few weeks. He is really playing well right now and I thought he was going to suck real bad. He is nothing but excellent right now. Dude is spreading the ball around nicely. Teams have no idea who is getting the ball.

          • Dunno if you guys saw this or not, but Matt Mosely posted a blurb in his ESPN.com blog saying he went over to the trainer's room and was told McBriar hadn't broken any bones.

            Dunno about the Achilles stuff, but there is a tiny bit of good news there.

              Yeah, heard it was just a sprain or something along those lines. I dont know where that torn achilles info came from...that would be devastating.

              • This team needs to stop talking with the media and listening what they're saying. That's what a 13-3 season does for you: everyone expects you to win every game.
                It all started with the "Romo to Mexico" stuff. They're always looking for the big story, they don't care about the game. In the past couple of years we've read a lot of made-up stories like TO not knowing the playbook, TO attempting suicide, Romo playing poorly because of Jessica Simpson, Pacman being in troubles again (the DMN was terrible, they were calling for Pacman head before even knowing what really happened).
                Combine that with a fanbase that after every loss goes nuts and calls for everyone's head (go watch the comments on DMN blog) and so expects this team to dominate every single game...
                We need to find our identity back, because we lost it. This team is having trouble handling pressure off the field. They should let what the media say go and have fun again.

                    • Um yeah, we're screwed. Completely changes the dynamic of the team. Time to pound the rock...a lot. I'm really so pissed off right now.

                      • We (the Bengals) would be glad to throw you Ryan Fitzpatrick lol.
                        But in all seriousness, would everyone rule out a possible trade for a younger backup or is Brad Johnson in for 4 weeks?

                          No trades...if Brad stumbles, we signed Brooks Bollinger. Who actually may be the better option than Brad.

                          and no thanks on Ryan Fitz. haha. I know him well, I got see him beat my local fav college team twice...but yeah, he's terrible.

                          • Man this was a rough week for Dallas. You lost arguably two of your most important players in Tony Romo and Mat McBriar. Luckily Brad Johnson has extensive starting experience and is smart enough to minimize mistakes. I wonder who will be signed to cover the punting duties

                            • Sam Hurd may have played his last game as a Cowboy. He re-injured that high ankle sprain on the opening kick off and will need season-ending surgery. Miraculously, he played the whole game and even threw that big block to spring Marion on that long TD. Sam is a FA at the end of the year...he certainly is the type of player that you would love to keep around but, this might be it. Very sad day for me...my two favorite players go down in the same game.

                              • I'd prefer Brooks since he is a similar type of player that Romo is, but I'm not sure how much he knows the playbook.

                                Damn about Hurd, but I think we should bring him back since he's a quality special teams player and has shown he can produce when given the opportunity
