NFC Wild Card: Cowboys at Panthers (1 Viewer)

Why does Madden keep saying it's going to be on Carter's shoulders to make plays? What about the offensive line?What about Troy Hambrick or Richie Anderson holding onto the ball?What about the receivers making plays like Steve Smith does after the catch?What about the defense?It all just gets old after awhile!
Two guys touch it every play. One's the Center.
 
HAHAHAHA.....3RD AND LONG!!!!!!!Dallas will kick a FG or turnover the ball.2 minute warning...

OK, nobody said anything about there being a quiz tonight.

So....it is Quincy's fault that Anderson fumbled the ball! :rolleyes:
 
This is a part of my teaser today - I was 100% certain Car. would dictate the game flow to Dallas and hand them a fairly straight forward loss. However, I teased the under figuring it wouldn't be a total snooze-out - I am worried about the over teaser of 28 - I def. didn't think I should tease a 34 point O/U the other way! With 13-0, I'd like to see some life out of Dallas to keep Carolina interested.

Umm, I may be wrong, but I think this is a typical Madden quote, not a comment on the game.
 
Jenkins is all over the snap count.If the Cowboys are going to win they might want to change the snap count

Ummm....it sounded like a comment on this game to me.
 
Two goal line stands by Dallas. Too bad they can't get the ball in the endzone yet.
Well....that's Carter's fault....just ask around. You know he's one of the two guys that touches the ball every play. It has nothing to do with the running back fumbling the ball!
 
thats has to be one of the worst officiating that i have seen in a playoff game. that pass interference they called on both steve smith and mario edwards was bs. it was only smith, and that gave them 7, when it should have been a punt. the pass interference on newman just now was a terrible call. and how do you not review the call. i dont care if it was right or not, but how do you not even take a look at it.sad. :no:

Looked like a no call to me. At some point, you have to let these guys play.

i would have taken that too. but smith obviously pushed edwards away to try to get space. and, oh yueah, the ball wasnt even catchable(not saying this to you, just sayin it in general)
 
how is that? carter drove them down the field, the RB fumbles, and it isnt his fault? :confused:
I'm just trying to understand the logic behind those that blame Carter everytime the Cowboys lose a game. It seems like everything is his fault, but I never seem to hear his name when they win. Remember...they won 10 games and only lost 6.

It's making me sick - only in regards to my teaser though.Excellent showing by the Cowboys defense - you know Parcell's LOVES those strong goalline stands. If the 'boys can get anything going on offense in the second half, they can make the Panthers pay for for being unable to punch it in from the one - - twice.(and I'll regret those 8 points, for sure)In any case - my keys to Dallas overcoming Carolina's superiority on both offense and defense was for Carter to make plays to the WRs - he had a couple to Galloway and one to Glenn, but they were unable to capitalize. He needs to do more of that in the second half - and no TOs. If the boys play TO free balll in the 2nd half, they will probably stay in the game until the end.For their part, the Panthers are getting almost everything they want - they are winning the TO battle, the big plays are all going their way, and they are fairly successful onthe ground, thus controlling the TOPossession. They hope not to regret two field goals on excellent TD opp.s, but they have to be feeling pretty good, especially Jake Delhomme, who looks really crisp right now.

oh, so it was sarcastic, gotcha :thumbup: my bad
 
at least he finally learned to look into the camera at halftime of the 2nd game. but that tie is hideous.

 
And, it starts out really bad for Dallas (but really good for me). Any more scoring better than a safety, and no comeback by Dallas (which is highly unlikely to happen at this point) and I win all my bets today except one.Shmagu - what is your problem? I have defined for you (and I thought you agreed) that the strategy for Dallas relies on Carter's shoulders - if he fails to make the plays, or he turns it over, Dallas wil llose the game - maybe it was unfair earlier in the year to blame him or whatever, but THIS GAME rests squarely on Carter's shoulders.

How is Quincy Carter responsible for a fumbling running back, a penalty/big play-prone pass defense, and a punter that can't seem to kick the ball further than 30 yards?Once again....Quincy Carter is not solely responsible for Dallas' 6 losses this season as has been the popular belief around here and he's surely not responsible for the score to this point in tonight's game.
 
Carter is responsible for Dallas not putting the ball in the endzone- just like all starting quarterbacks are held responsible.

 
whenever they show Parcells on the sideline, you can almost hear him saying to himself:"what the #### are we doing here???"

Maybe if the running back held onto the ball inside the 20 yard line, they wouldn't be down 20 points. Or just maybe if the punter could put his foot on the ball, they wouldn't be on the wrong side of the all-important field position battle!

Playoff quarterbacks have to overcome all that stuff and put the ball in the endzone anyway.

Any suggestions on how to overcome a situation when every aspect of the game is going bad? I guess it's just easy to blame the quarterback for the play of an entire team, but there's not much thought involved in that! When the running game is absolutely non-existent, it's not that hard for the defense to figure out what to do!

Dude, I don't care - you are evidently missing it.I, for one, am not BLAMING him for the loss - the 'boys' defense is giving up a lot of big plays and there was a fumble that was not Carter's fault that led to points.However, offensive impotence can be traced back to Carter not making the plays to the WRs that we discussed - those big plays need to go Dallas' way for them to have a chance - Carter is not to be blamed for the loss, but he can certainly be blamed for failing to get his team in a position to win. That's the QBs JOB - get first downs, run the offense well enough to keep drives alive, position the team for offensive success.These "almost INTs" are helping make my case as they continue to kill possessions.

And you're evidently missing it as well, because without ANY running game at all, it doesn't make it too hard for a defense to make plays!

He's got to make plays. He's got to lead the team down the field like Wright did in the 4th quarter against the Titans to tie the game. Or like McNair did to set up the game winning field goal. Carter isn't making any plays.

No, you miss it - we agreed that there would be unlikely any running room and that Carter would HAVE TO make plays to the wideouts, which he is failing to do. Now you are making excuses for Carter failing to make plays, when we were fairly sure that was exactly what he'd have to do to keep the team in the game.
 
This is one of the best games I've seen Muhsin Muhammad play in 2-3 years.
What about that 180+ yarder a couple of weeks ago - talk about a revival - he is now going to be called Mushin MuZombie b/c he has arisen from the dead.
 
Cowboys are getting horsewhipped out there. None of them are blameless, including the coaches.Quincy Carter should have about three picks by now, so I guess you could say the Cowboys are lucky the game is this close...The thing that amuses me is that the announcers had a bit where they asked both coaches about preparing for the playoffs--Fox says he'll prepare the same as always, and Parcells says it's 'totally different'. Then, the game starts....and Fox is the one who's gambling and making adjustments, while Parcells seems to be coaching like it's December and there's a star in the middle of the field...

I'm glad you brought up Steve McNair. Maybe if Carter put up those kind of numbers (14/23, 159 yds, 1 td, 3 int), he could lead the team to victory? :rotflmao: Did you not watch the game today? Tennessee had 165 rushing yards, a rushing td, and 0 fumbles! Now...if Dallas got that kind of production out of their running game, then maybe they would be in this game at the end!
 
And you're evidently missing it as well, because without ANY running game at all, it doesn't make it too hard for a defense to make plays!
Anothony Wright wasn't given any running game earlier today. The Ravens had just 35 yards rushing from their running backs. Yet, when he was needed most, Wright made the plays to put the team in a position to win. He made the game-tying TD pass and gave the defense a chance to send the game to OT.

Good call. I forgot about that one. I actually liked Muhsin as a sleeper pick going into the season and took him real late in my draft, thinking he could emerge as a viable No. 4 WR. He got off to a poor start and I traded him early in the season and never missed him -- even after he showed signs of life late in the year. But I think he looks real good tonight (so does Smith obviously). I just wonder if this is a sign he'll be worth something next year or if this is just one of those games a WR has every now and then.
 
Well, both teams did what I needed them to - Carolina blew out Dallas, as I expected them to, and that last FG gives the teams 29 points combined, and Dallas has a shot in heck of getting within three points.Thank you Quincy Carter and Jake Delhomme for playing as I expected and getting me deep into the green - a teaser, two parlays and a straight bet all are virtually guaranteed on that Kasay FG. I hope to be as lucky again tomorrow.
