    Jimmuh was known to lay into the team harder during a win streak, especially a blowout win, and be more nurturing after a tough loss.
    They needed a coach to get on their ass after the Miami game when they came and half-assed it the first half, you could tell they already eating the cheese

      This is completely retarded. Missed FGs are not only missed points, but momentum killers. The other team comes off the field fired up that no points were given up, and ours comes off dejected that they put together a scoring drive, but came away with nothing.

      To think trying to secure a good kicker is 'band-aid stuff' is moronic.

        Oh I don't blame Maher for the 6 points he left on the board. Our chances were slim to win even if he made both kicks. But that doesn't mean Maher isn't a problem. If he misses those kicks in a more competitive game we absolutely will lose because of him. Plus there is just something really pathetic about missing a 30 some yard kick. I'll give a guy a break for a miss here or there on the longer stuff. But that second miss should have been a gimmie. It's a big fuckup for a kicker.
        I agree 100%. Obviously kickers miss kicks all the time, but Maher for whatever reason misses the easy shit.

        I dont blame Maher for being a average kicker, I blame the lazy owner and coaching staff for sticking with a guy everyone who can see is a suck ass kicker.

          Id agree out of everything besides not getting the points, the field position and the momentum killer these missed kicks cause is a huge problem.

            Sooner or later we will lose a game because of Maher. We hit that fieldgoal at the end of the half and then go for the TD at the end of regulation to tie rather than still need another score. Who knows. Don't give the guy a pass just because he wasn't the biggest problem. He was a serious problem and not one we weren't already worried about.

              There is no excuse to not even look at some kickers. At least see what the other options out there look like.

                Cant find the tweet now but Archer replied to some people complaining about Maher. The tweet gave Mahers FG % and then listed the people available and the way it read gave the impression that Archer didnt think any were worthwhile despite the fact that two of them had higher percentages.

                Why improve?

                  Yeah I saw that too. I was thinking the same thing. Those guys hit at a higher percent, how are they not better? I'm not asking for elite but there are at least competent options out there.

                    The easy thing to say is the Cowboys need to cut Brett Maher, who has missed six field goal attempts in his last 12 games over the last two seasons, including two vs. Green Bay. But whos out there? Last week New England worked out five kickers before signing Mike Nugent, including Kai Forbath, Blair Walsh, Elliott Fry and Matthew Wright. Forbath has made 83.7% of his field goal tries the last two seasons. Walsh has made 73%. Maher has made 76.7% the last two seasons.

                          I was trying to make a larger point about deeper problems -- coaching deficiencies and ownership incompetence. They've been there for 20 years. You don't fix what was wrong in the Green Bay game -- and all the other failures over that time, by getting a better kicker.

                          Green Bay rode roughshod over Dallas. A missed field goal, or a kicker who can't it done wouldn't have changed that.

                            but you will never fix the ownership problem either. coaching might be a different story, lots of folks might just get their wish if these performances continue

                                You fix what you can and live with what you can't change. You can't fix Jerry but you sure as shit can fix the kicker problem. I guess some would rather just give up and bury their head in the sand until Jerry dies. Can't blame them but I'd rather try to fix the problems that are fixable.
