When you start thinking about the cavalry on their way, you have already fucking lost.

I absolutely hate that mindset that is pretty obvious right now.

Someone alert the league, something is seriously wrong with this Bills-Saints game. There's supposed to be a penalty every third play.

It makes a big difference but I get your point.

We'll win the division and probably a playoff game but I'm not confident in these guys stringing together 2-3 strong performances in a row anymore.

See what happens when I don't start or participate in a chatter thread?

Cooper, Lamb, Gregory, and probably D-Law.

Give me just one of these guys today, just one, doesn't matter which one, and you have a win.
No man…not with some of those throws. Dak pretty much lost the game with that shit throw on a fucking 3rd and 4. If that’s what 40 million gets you, I hope Jerry and his whole family throw up their turkey dinner.

Quite a difference in the past month.

I'm taking nothing for granted. We may beat up a couple of bottom feeders along the way to winning a garbage division, but I'm not counting on a postseason win.

I mean the WR initiated the (extremely minimal) contact. Pretty sure the league has given refs a mandate to keep games close (most games ever decided on the final drive) and probably to keep division races within shouting distance.

Just expectations being reeled into reality.

Was fun while it lasted and maybe it gets better next year.
We are doing the next year's team thing all over again.

Except we are not losing in conference championships.

Can Dallas actually go to NO and win against the great Trevor Semien and this potent offense I’m watching on Thanksgiving night? A month ago I’d laugh at the absurd question…but now?? Not such an absurd question.
