This is something I've been saying for a long time. This team will only go as far as their QB takes it and I agree that it was one of Dak's best games. Not so much because of the stat line, but because he came back from a severe injury and lead the team and put them in a real position to win. And he made some clutch throws, under pressure, to boot.

But we still need a DL. Even an average DL wins the game. Brady doesn't even need to wash his jersey or uniform; he was barely touched or pressured. And let's not forget we were the beneficiaries of a dropped TD pass on a perfectly thrown pass from Brady.

Parcells understood this. It's why he wanted Spears so early in the draft; it was the right idea but the wrong player. A good DL has that unselfish player who collapses the pocket, attracts double teams and opens things up for other linemen. Jimmy knew it as well, which is why he drafted Maryland #1. The Dallas DL scares no one and I'm just waiting for Randy Gregory to get suspended because that's the environment Jerry has created at VR. There is no accountability.

If our running game doesn't start producing some yards out of Zeke then we are done.

The OL's ability to run block has been slipping for awhile, but in regards to last week I don't see what people are complaining about. People want to "run the ball to keep the other teams offense off the field". Against Tampa we had more total plays, more total yards, more first downs and a nearly 10 minute advantage in time of possession, and we still didn't win.

Like Dodger said, we need the defense to at least get to a point where it's "average", if not, it doesn't matter if Zeke runs for 125 every game we are still going to lose to good teams.

Because Dak had to pass like 60 times. That's insane. Our Defense had 4 takeaways. How much better do you need them to be to put up a freaking 'W'? If we'd had better ball control and drives that weren't eating up the field and not the clock, that was a win.

Prescott doesn't call the plays and the audibles they do run are dictated by the defense's pre snap alignments.

They had 3 or 4 good running plays the entire game against an elite run defense, they had a significant advantage in number of plays run and time of possession, what are you complaining about?

The offense didn't cost us the game genius, the defense did. As usual.

FOUR turnovers collected and how many points off turnovers? 10.

8 games straight including playoffs and the SB, Tampa has run up 30 on all. But we're the only ones to squander four fucking takeaways. Or even get four takeaways.

Dude just stop.

One of the turnovers was a Hail Mary at the end of a half and one other one was a perfectly set up screen pass where the ball went right through the RB's hands.

Did we or did we not have the lead at the end of the game? What part of the team was on the field at the end of the game when Tampa won?

And by the way, Brady threw 3 picks in the NFC Championship game.

Two gift turnovers.

No sacks. No pressure, no tackles for loss (vs run or pass, only one of 3 NFL teams to manage ZERO tackle for loss in week one). Defense had the lead and Tampa had a long field with the game on the line, and defense allowed the game winning points.

Sometimes Doomz you have the sense of an AOC voter.

A ONE POINT lead is gonna ever hold up against Brady. Right?

Our vaunted offense attained the lead that ONE time and you expected it to hold up? Give Brady 1:22 and only needs a FG to win?
No sacks. No pressure
Ball out of Brady's hands in 2.6 sec average.

But hell, we lost to the reigning Soup Bow champs by two lousy points. There's tons of blame to go around for all. Real questions get answered today vs Chargers.

Dude, like I said just stop.

Fucking retard argument you are making.

The offense played well enough to win. The defense came up small, as usual.

29 points gonna win majority of NFL games? Pissing away one red zone opportunity after another is winning football? Fucking FG attempts out the wazoo? Can't eat clock on final drive, leaving BRADY with 1:22 and two timeouts? There is much to be desired with this O.

And beside all that, you have fucking 2/3 of your personell money spent on the offense, and you have ongoing problem of can't get a TD from the red zone. NO TD on 20 straight opening drives. Gazillion dollar RB standing on the sidelines has to be THE most expensive fucking bystander/onlooker/spectator ever. And you're saying THIS loaded offense played well enough to win? It UNDERPERFORMED. Period.
