  1. Cowboys hoping for playoff run, won't IR Romo

    I support this decision.  In fact, I plan to root for the Cowboys to make the playoffs.  I hope they win their wildcard game.  And I hope they bench the QB that got them there when they show up at BofA stadium to see the Panthers again.   TV was all well and good, but I want to see his career ended in person if I can.
  2. WCO, Coryell, E-P....

    Shula-Newton? I've been reading all season about how Shula has tailored our offense specifically to Cam's strengths.  Like the WCO and Coryell systems, it's based on a power running game.  Like Coryell, we use that to set up the deep pass.  Like E-P, we have many potential runs off the same look.  And there's a big element of the zone read in play as well. I'm just tossing this out there for conversation, and think it's interesting to consider.  If we have sustained success on offense for many seasons to come running this system, you know that other OCs in the league will break it down and imitate it.  Netwon's success is surely going to inspire other kids to play QB when they maybe pass the eye test for LB or DE.  He's the first like him, but won't be the last.  And right now, you could even argue that a QB like EJ Manuel or even (*shudder*) Colin Kaepernick could be effective in this system.  Frankly, I think it's one that could make The Golden Calf of Bristol look like an NFL QB. If that happens, the sustained success and imitator that is, do you think this offense will take on an identity of it's own like E-P or Coryell?  Will future football fans talk about how their team is going to change from a WCO to a Shula?   Could that happen?  Why or why not?
  3. Is Norwood the worst Gettleman move to date?

    11-0, who cares?  And who really thinks Gettleman doesn't make mistakes?  Of course he does.  The difference here is, his mistakes don't cause more problems down the road.
  4. Unheralded Architect of the Carolina Panthers

    We've got some great scouts.  And back to back GMs that listen to them.
  5. Where is SCP ?

    Why does this question get asked every week?  He's inevitable at this point.
  6. Another key here is that they start Nick Hayden and THE Tyrone Crawford, two crappy DTs who can't stop the run to save their life.  Hardy is good, but on the other edge you have Demarus Lawrence, who weighs in at something like 250 pounds.  If their linebackers don't have career days, then we're either going to run all over them or have single coverage everywhere.   That makes for some long, sustained drives, which means that by the end of the game our guys are going to be fresh.  If Romo is in obvious passing downs, it's going to look like it did against Washington. Get some popcorn--this is going to be fun to watch.
  7. Cam is getting better every week, and this is no exception.  Defense plays lights out, Panthers win in a yawner, 31-14.
  8. Rank our remaining games from toughest to softest

    At Giants (Eli magic) At Cowboys (Romo juju) At Atlanta (Revenge for last year) Tampa Bay (They want to play spoiler) At New Orleans (Payton is already fielding calls from Indy) Atlanta (Carolina's "feel-good" game of the year)
  9. You didn't see them holding the Redskins to 12 yards rushing?  Obvious striped-shirt bias there...
  10. Jets waive Quentin Coples

    I went to State and Wake Forest, and hate Carolina.  I made the thread, so yes.
  11. TBH, there are a disturbing amount of Cowboys fans that sound reasonable and who think we're going to win.  Not like the last two weeks at all.
  12. Jets waive Quentin Coples

    Not a fit in their system, I guess.   What are the chances he gets a shot in Carolina?  If he does, what are the chances he chooses us?  I'm sure the suiters will be lining up.
  13. Panthers have two opponents this week.

    The key to the game will be our D-Line vs. their O-Line, not any referee favoritism.  Particularly this year on a national stage, where they will be under a microscope.   Besides, if there was favoritism, you think Hardy would get a single call?
  14. Kirk Cousins, boy singer

    We just can't lose to this...
