    we're not leaps and bounds better, and you did acknowledge the biggest improvement was in the secondary... but i still think we're more talented up front than last year. our d-line and linebackers are bigger and more physical, as we've shied away from the "small and quick" defensive approach
    I still dont believe we are really any more talented up front than last year. I do believe however, that the personell we have fits what we are doing much better than what we had. Which, combined with the drastically improved secondary, is why I believe we are seeing such impressive results on the defensive side.

      But most of us knew the team would be much better all-around than last year, and that a big part of that would be an improved defense.



      A big part of that inefficiency was the penalties, which is exactly what I said. "If it hadn't been for the penalties (and this includes not calling interference on the two plays Eddie was molested), we'd have slapped the crap out of them."

      The only reason it was close was because of our penalties (which we earned), and the two they earned (at least) that didn't get called.
      I think the reason the game stayed close is because Romo stunk big time.

        Not really. Nothing good? That's just ridiculous. And that last touchdown was a pretty good throw. Newman was right in front of Marshall but could not make the pick because the ball had perfect height, Marshall could grab it right above Newman's hands. Quarterbacks do that all the time, just look at Warner and Fitzgerald. The ball is thrown with touch and you expect the big receiver to adjust better than the corner and win the battle. Such throw is an interception only if the receiver quits or if the corner makes a great play.

          Maybe he stunk because there was a lot of pressure from our front seven, arms swinging in front of him, players getting close to bring him down.

            Wasn't there a QB rating of 150 in the second half? Didn't he manage a rating of 117.5 through the whole game without any miracle plays? Naw, couldn't have.

            Kyle's quarterback rating is still about 10 points higher than Cutler's. Perhaps it's time for some of these guys to get over it.
            Brock you like a hurricane!

            Think of a bigger, stronger, more handsome Eli Manning.... That's Fargo.

              Even Matt "Let's Draft a WR" Millen has changed his speech:

                A lot of people couldn't see past the loss of Cutler to notice that the rest of the team looked pretty good. When you have an 8 and 8 TEAM and you improve on the 8 and 8 TEAM, then it stands to reason that we can be pretty good. But, I don't think even the most positive people thought our D would be this good this soon.

                The offense (Kyle Orton) took a step back today, but you'll have that some times. We're still getting better on both sides of the ball. We're just winning while we're getting better.
                With that said, its not like we won on the arm of Orton ( who I had no problems with to start with) But the real supprise was the D. and the play of the LB's.
