  1. What Cowboys Fans Are Saying

    k. Personally I don't really care if Romo is among the top 5 qb's we have faced.  Romo is a decent to good qb depending on who you ask, but the key imo will be who controls the line of scrimmage (as it usually is). 
  2. What Cowboys Fans Are Saying

    If you are replying to me, I never used the phrase "qb's the panthers have faced".  He is in the upper half of all NFL qb's. 
  3. What Cowboys Fans Are Saying

        I imagine that Jerry Jones and the rest of the Cowboys front office is getting a little desperate.  No Superbowls in a long time, and its highly doubtful they even make the playoffs this year.  Even if they beat us, they have games at Green Bay and at Buffalo, both in December.  Odds are they lose at least one of those and probably both.          Romo is a top half of the league qb, the best the Cowboys have had since Aikman left.  But he is 35 years old, and probably has a year or two left before his skills begin to drop off.  And replacing him with a QB of equal or greater ability will not be easy.   So their window is closing rapidly.   And I hope we make it close a little more on Thursday. 
  4. The greg hardy vs michael oher matchup

    Four years I think.  I don't think he practiced with us last year, except perhaps in preseason.  I am not all that worried about him knowing or not knowing the playbook.  Players move around all the time, so I am sure the teams prepare for this.  Godfrey played for Atlanta last year and probably knew our plays as well as anyone, yet it did him and them no good whatsoever.  Knowing player tendencies, especially our offensive linemen might be of greater benefit.  But then the reverse is also true in that our offensive linemen know his tendencies. 
  5. Breaking: Turkish F-16 shot down Russian fighter jet

    Putin will make a lot of noise, but I don't see him doing a whole lot, at least not at this point, except perhaps use it as a bargaining chip.   But it will increase Russian hostile attitudes towards Turkey.    Fwiw, the USS Truman and the French Carrier Charles Degaulle are apparently operating together in the Eastern Med near Syria.  We have some fairly significant air assets in the area.
  6. NFL refs and reffing inconsistencies

    This is not just an NFL thing.  I remember a former ACC coach talking about knowing the tendencies of certain officials, and game planning accordingly.  I do wonder if scouting teams report on referee crew tendencies.  If not, then perhaps they should, if such a thing is allowed.    I don't really blame the refs for seeming inconsistent though.  The NFL almost seems to go out of its way to make certain rules as difficult as possible to enforce.   
  7. Week 12 Power Rankings

    I might agree if the legacy was from 10 years or more ago.  But the Patriots won the Superbowl last year with pretty much the same team they have now.  They will be number one in the rankings until someone beats them.  Preferably us in the Superbowl in the first SB battle of unbeatens.    Not that I really care that much anyway.  These polls are interesting to discuss on message boards, but beyond that, they are meaningless.     
  8. The Stupid Double Standard in the Media

    You might be right, but I also think that not having any big name offensive players besides Newton plays into it.  We are kind of a no name offense.

  10. The Patriots are the worst undefeated team in the league

    Geez, and I thought our end game management was bad a couple of years ago.  Buffalo's is absolutely horrid.  2 minutes and they move the ball 25 yards with the qb throwing 5 yard passes and staring at the sideline for 20 seconds.    Taylor was obviously hurt, should have been yanked. 
  11. We're a nameless, faceless opponent - Hardy

    I doubt he really feels this way, but he didn't say anything controversial. 
  12. Atlanta Falcons.... RISE UP

    Or maybe they have over performed to get to 6 wins, and what we are seeing now is a more realistic performance for them.  Paying a price for using so many draft picks to get Julio Jones.  Don't get me wrong, Jones is one of the better receivers in the NFL.  But they could have used some more offensive and defensive line players. 
  13. We clinch the division with 3 wins.  Or two wins if one of them is against Atlanta. 
  14. So we're losing the game on Fox since it's such a blowout

    It was more lack of respect for the redskins than for us, since they are the team getting blown out.  Fwiw, it stayed on in Winston for the whole game, although I switched to the foulcans/colts game to watch Matt Ryan and company mismanage the last few minutes.  :)    
  15. Official Redskins at Panthers Gameday Thread

    It seems like we did it against the forty niners in 2013, but recovered both.  I might be misremembering it though.
