    All season long, I have been telling my Crygirl co-worker (and good friend) that DeMeco is a good line backer and in my opinion would win DROY.
    For some reason, he felt the need to continuously change the subject to how poor we were doing, or how well they were doing.

    I wasn't trying to start some big debate on the merits of our respective teams, just share the fact that I felt we had a good player on our hands.

    Today I sent him a "Told You So" email, and as usual, he couldn't just say anything positive, or admit that i had been right.
    Instead, he turned the subject towards the fact the his team is in the playoffs, and mine isn't, and typically added a few jabs about the Mario pick as well. He also said that he wouldn't respond (for some reason) to my DeMeco email because I wouldn't admit that Dallas was the better team.

    I'd like to share my response to him with you.


    I just felt like sharing that.

    Nice!! Great post.

    As someone else mentioned on another board... The Nancy Football Conference is generally weaker across the board...

    Oh well, at least we remain foremost on the minds of many. That probably took a lot of thought to come up with such thorough comparisons. Thank you for your efforts.

    Personally, I wish The Tuna would hang around a few more years, because I really like him, but if he does decide to retire I wish him well and thanks for coaching our team. Whatever happens, the Cowboys may slip a bit, but will ultimately land on their feet.

    I don't have an ax to grind with the Texans, so I can sit around and wait for other little tidbits for my entertainment pleasure.

    I agree that things aren't as rosy as we would like, heck, losing sucks. Who ever coined the phrase "it doesn't matter whether you win or lose, but its how you play the game" didn't come from the Cowboys camp.

    And don't forget they coughed up the division lead to a team that was said to be done.

    ummmm....stats are cool and all....but honestly, scoreboard is all that matters. I dislike the Cowboys, but they've whooped us this season, have a winning record, and are in the playoffs. That's just the cold hard truth. It's a good try at smack talk, but I don't feel it's strong enough of a case to be made. I'd trade their season with ours anytime.

    I'm as proud to have DeMeco as anyone, and he gives me hope for the future, too. So you have nothing to be ashamed of from that perspective.

    Besides, I learned long ago not to argue with Cowboys fans. Most of them are only around when the team wins. :shades:

    Agreed on all points, however, I will never pass up an opportunity to give a crygirl a dose of reality when it is in direct contradiction to the rosy fairytale they tend to paint for themselves. That certainly was the case here.

    If it were a matter of a single season I might trade for theirs as well, but it isn't. It's the state and direction of both franchises, and I think I'll stand pat.
