Via ESPN: Romo is the NFL's only active QB with multiple 5 INT games.
Looking at the schedule truly is pointless. So many things could happen. Teams have injuries at key positions and start to slide. Teams who are playing poorly go on a run. Maybe teams look at their schedules and see us on there and think, "ugh, don't want to play them right now"?
Honestly, it's more about us than any other team right now. We know our issues. If we can solve the secondary and play better at Safety as well as be more consistent in our deep ball game offensively I think we can beat ANY team on our schedule. It's up to us.

I think as the seasons goes along the D will get better. We don’t need a top 10 D to be effective. We just need a D that can make stops in crucial moments. Rob J and Chris Wilson will get better and when Meriweather comes back he should be an upgrade. #91 is a Buck stud, and is going to lead this D.
I’m riding with my squad. HTTR!!!!!!

We have a tough schedule. Game planning is the key. Griffen needs to be aware of the opponents (players) weakness. He needs protection. We all can agree he is tough but this schedule is tough. Griffen can not take to many big hits. Watching what chicago did to dallas last night was enjoyable. Griffen's looks more comfortable now handing off.
Let alone a high powered one like Dallas' when it's clicking.
The NFL has a mindset of "if it doesn't change anything anyway, who cares." The same thing happened week 2 when Cutler threw his 4th INT against the Packers that was clearly dropped but it was a turnover on downs anyway so they basically said eh, oh well.
We can sweep the Cowboys this year for sure, but when they are on and Dez comes to play they are deadly. Against our secondary even if they aren't clicking they can still have big games. We need to be ready.
Edit: Though looking at their schedule last night, they could realistically be 3-5 or even 2-6 after their next 4 games if they play like they did the last 3 weeks. I would love to have them buried and out of it early or even have the chance to put that nail in the coffin on Thanksgiving.

My point is that in year three if you think the roster is in such shambles that losing a guy like Trent could dip us into 3-13 territory, then someone isn't doing their job.
Our rookie QB has been amazing; ditto the rookie RB. If those two are holdin the team together then what the heck else has Shanny done in three years?
I still contend that you are hedging your bets a bit to protect yourself emotionally from the damage this team normally inflicts on us I just don't understand how you can say you think we are heading in the right direction AND that you think we will be one of the worst teams in the league this year record-wise. In year three, the two don't compute.
I am holding Shanny accountable; so far this year, I am pleased. I don't expect us to beat Atlanta and unless we get embarrassed will not hold that game against him... He can only impress me by winning... House money. Then, much like TB, Minnesota will be a game I feel we should win and I will expect as much.
So to take that to it's last degree, let's say, in a wholly horrific hypothetical. we finish with 3 wins. Regressing in the W column in his third year.
Wouldn't that be time for him to go by your metric Klease man? You say you wouldn't be calling for his head, which I don't doubt. But by association to the lack of wins and not winning the games you think we should, shouldn't that be the final nail in the coffin?
Romo made a bone-headed forward pitch right to Lance Briggs.
Miles Austin ran a sloppy route that resulted in an interception
Dez Bryant, besides a lot of drops, ran a wrong route that resulted in a pick
Olgetree demonstrated his lack of skill by letting a pass bounce off his chest, straight up into the air for a pick.
I think looking at the roster and realizing that two years (not three) into a rebuild there are still some big holes that need to be addressed does not mean someone is having emotional problems. It's simply acknowledging what is. If you are unforgiving of the fact that those holes exist, and that we are in year two rather than three of our rebuild, and we should be better now than we are, call for Shanahan's head now. I won't complain.Originally Posted by kleese
If you want to pretend the team is more complete than it obviously is, well don't accuse other people of seeing what they want.

Its gonna be a tough rest of the way. I thought our early schedule was gonna be the softest part of it and we came 2-2 which isnt bad at all for a rookie QB and RB. And we may surprise some people but a lot of tough games left. Those last 6 games are gonna be brutal.
