    Exactly.

    It kinda voids this conversation. When your Momma phones you and tells you your playing bad then you are playing bad.

    Yep, they are an old school team, proving if you have the right pieces, you can make it work. They even played the Chiefs tough last year in the playoffs.

    It is surprising but you can’t say stats lie. What’s happening is.... most running backs are struggling. Passing has been much more Emphasized. It is crazy to bash any of our players when we have scored and gained yards. We are top 10 in offense and as bad as everyone wants to jump on our defense we are second in scoring defense. And that has been with very few takeaways. Seattle is ranked #1 in the nfl as a team and the main reason is they are top 5 in takeaways. They give up more yards than Dallas. It if you force turnovers you will win a lot of games. Let’s not worry how we do it. Let’s just win. Drake is 4th in the League. The only thing that tells me is that only 3 are better at gaining yards. Lol

    Of course it matters if a running back takes 2X the amount of carries to get the same amount of yards, right?

    Does the yards over expected go up so much because they expected so little of him?

    Hey if the stats say he is 4th. Then he is 4th. Period.

    You are your stats.

    And taking away plays that don't fit your narrative are dumb. That was a nice run and nice block.

    yes. He is 4th. You can’t put an asterisk next to it. I mean if you took the yards total And divided them evenly in all our games. That would make it a little better. But honestly you could do that with a lot of stats. I would have taken beating Dallas 27-10 and adding the 11 points to either Detroit or Carolina

    We have looked bad in 1 game. (Carolina ) The Detroit game we turned the ball over too much. But look what happens usually. Dallas turned the ball over 3 times and lost by 28. We turned it over 3 times against Detroit and lost by 3. This weekend will dictate how good we are and what these stats mean. Beat Seattle and go 5-2. And stats will tell a story of us being really good.

    Man oh man. Many of you have forgotten DJ’s 2yard burst and fall down on your face runs.

    Drake is guilty of taking his runs outside in the Jets game. He corrected that in the 4th quarter of that game.

    First down is so important to this offense. A solid 3-4 yard run on first down sets this offense up and for the most part he’s been doing that for us.

    I think you're the second person who said Dallas had 3 T.O's. Zeke had 2 fumbles and we had 2 ints. =4?
