Examining the disconnect between perception and reality
Yes, well, I'm glad your team is doing well in free agency. Revis will be an addition to the Patriots.Meanwhile, my team, the Cowboys, are sucking it big time. First, Jerry Jones demotes Garrett in favor of Calahan, then he demotes Calahan in favor of Linehan. He hires Kiffin, then demotes him in favor of Marinelli. And then he says he wants Garrett, supposedly an offensive genius, to pay more attention to defense, right before he releases the two best players on defense.It didn't take Ware twelve hours to sign with Denver for money than Dallas was willing to pay him. Hatcher signed with Washington. Suddenly, Dallas has no defensive line to speak of.I mean, it's ridiculous. It would be a comedy if it wasn't a tragedy. And these guys think they're going to compete for a Super Bowl? Give me a freaking break. They can't even make the playoffs, for crying out loud.They had the worst defense in the league, in franchise history, and they've just gutted it. They can't sign anyone of note in free agency, because they'e cap-strapped; all they can do is sign backups off of losing teams. It just keeps getting worse and worse.I don't think they'll win 6 games this season. They don't have a defense!But your team, the Patriots, they are on the verge of a championship. I truly believe that. They are well managed and well coached, and they have a quarterback to die for.My Cowboys have none of the above.
