Now can we agree that style points matter ? how you win and how you play is ALMOST as important as the win itself … because it WILL determine how many more wins are coming - and the cowboys game with Washington proves my point
Cowboys win a game Sunday against Cleveland they didn’t deserve to win … played a horrible game … but since the browns are even worse they managed to steal it in overtime … and then I hear “HEY IT’S A WIN -- CELEBRATE THE WIN -- COWBOYS ARE 5 AND 5 -- STYLE POINTS DON’T MATTER -- BE HAPPY”
Well who’s happy now ?
A team that has too many players who apparently can’t count to 3 -- the illegal motions resulting in field goals instead of touchdowns - and it happens all the time … a defense that can’t make a play when it really needs one -- despite a defensive coordinator who will tell you “we will win the game” …. A special teams unit that has too many men on the field too many times … which now that I think about it happens on some of the other cowboys units too -- and a quarterback who I do think is playing a little shorthanded sometimes - but 1 who continues to “try and make something happen”
The next time someone says “I was trying to make something happen” -- and something GOOD happened - will be the 1st time
Now I will say this - if you believe the cowboys are an inferior team with inferior talent - if you believe they are a group who should win no more than 7 or 8 games … then style points wouldn’t matter and you should celebrate a win
But I still argue … this cowboys team has enough talent - not all the super bowl talent the esteemed general manager and owner keeps saying they have - but enough --- go through the roster and compare the talent with MOST nfl teams … player by player -- and I will argue the cowboys have enough good ones to win in this league
A league where the little things separate the winners and losers - almost all games come down to a play or a penalty or a turnover - and the good teams that win make those plays by not making mistakes
This cowboys team doesn’t
BECAUSE STYLE POINTS MATTER !!!!!!!!!
