    Don't want to nitpick but...

    I found it a little frustrating that we had to settle for 5 field goals. Obviously, I don't care about the last one.

    But the way this team was moving the ball last night, to be stopped in the redzone a few times was a little bothersome to me.

    Also, is anyone else having trouble trying to figure out after watching last night, if we are that good or is Carolina that bad. Maybe it's a little of both.

    We had a good game while Carolina had a bad game. Our defense came out last night for real, and our offense exploited their defensive weaknesses. This is football, so much parity goes on in the league to be calling 1 team bad or 1 team good.

    I'm glad we got the win against a great offensive team.

    They just beat NO and cam is very dangerous. Their d is porous and we took full advantage. Why are you still trying to figure out if the SB champs are good? Every time #10 steps on the field you can be sure that the team is good. Oh and JPP is the best defensive player in the game - so you can stop wondering.

    the best part about the 5 FGs is that they were all made. They only punted 1 and no turnovers. So you come up with 36 points.....that will win you many games in the NFL....

    yes, had we gotten 5 TDs instead of 5 FGs, we would have won 56-7, which is what it should have been

    i thought getting points on our 1st 4 drives was as good of a start and you can hope for ... so X those FGs off the list

    the final FG was with Carr in the game, so X that one off the list

    the 4th FG came on a nice drive following Carolina's only TD ... it made it, so they would have needed 3 TDs to take the lead

    now, i will give you the 3rd FG ... the STs handed us a short field ... Eli had to scramble on 3rd down and slide a couple yards short of a 1st ... it wasnt like we got penalties or didnt gain a yard, but i agree short field ... get the TD

    but my point is dont just say 5 FGs, 5 FGs ... what is wrong with us !!! .. you have to take the time to break it all down

    Well again KG just isn't the greatest redzone /fringe redzone playcaller. But Eli mentioned the fgs right after the game so it will be addressed. Also I think we moved the ball so well some of have forgotten that Nicks wasn't playing...he would have helped us punch it in a few more times.

    Also I think Carolina was a little flat. I don't think the young team handled the short week properly.

    I think it's a valid point. Against a better team 5 FG is a problem. I think Carolina is that bad. There record last year is proof of it. To let us open up gapig holes like that made me wondre about the talent level of their line because Dallas basically **** our run game down.

    I think it's obviously a bit of both and I wouldn't feel bad about having to "settle" for a 36-7 win.

    C'mon man!

    Considering we had 3 starters out on offense, I can't complain with the offensive production, the one drive that I really wanted a TD was after the Hosley INT, which then would put the game pretty much out of reach. In the age of Madden football video game generation, too may fans demand TDs on every drive, let's calm down.
