But, the Cowboys are "America's Team". You don't have to take my word for it, just ask one of them.

The only thing better than sad and dejected Cowboys fans, are sad and dejected longhorn fans.

Meanwhile Eagles fans are just laughing atnthe absurdity of this season.

Well they put up points. Its not like they don't have an offense, the cowboys just have to invest a little more in a secondary that they already knew was weakened when they lost Sean Lee.

Now the Pack getting farking wrecked...thats reason to be distraught.

See, this is why it's best to be either really good, or really bad. As a Chiefs fan, I'm looking forward to losses at this point, and the faint hope that Matt Barkley will be a competent NFL QB. Sure, this feeling is the same feeling of euphoria that stranded hikers have moments before they freeze to death, but it's nice nonetheless.

Yeah that's great. Time to move on though. Dallas could still play spoiler to the Skins making the playoffs, and then Steinberg can write another smarmy little column about that.
 
2012-11-27 09:34:06 AM  
Remember all those years where the Skins sucked and the Cowboys were decent, and all the n00bz tried to claim there was no "rivalry" between the two teams because of some asinine belief that "rivalries have to be competitive on both sides"?

What forums are those people derping up right now?

Smarmy is one of my favorite words. But you have to be careful in its use.

Understand, that it should only be invoked at times of incredible appropriateness, Like, when Alec Baldwin is shown on TV, or Tony Romo.

Only when its really needed.

What is really depressing is hearing Stephen Jones, Jerrah's heir apparent, mumbling about how management still has to believe in the possibility of making the playoffs this year in order to support the morale of the lower lifeforms. As though some f*ckin REALISM wouldn't be the most encouraging thing players and fans could hear right now.

Fair enough. Rooting for DC area teams does have one thinking "how can they blow this" at all times. shiat, I was even thinking that in the 2nd half of the last game, even before all those Cowboy TDs. I just want to enjoy some good farking news for a change!

He'd be an improvement over anything on the roster. I'll actually give Quinn a little bit of credit for not turning the ball over (minus an essentially meaningless INT at the end of the game), but the fact that saying "he didn't turn it over" when he also passed for less than 150 yards is pathetic. I did see this, though, which was intriguing-

chiefconcerns.com

He's been pretty bad in the two games that he played against top defenses, but it's intriguing.

Incorrigible Astronaut: "...but it's interesting." Preview is your friend, kids.


Is he supposed to fall to the second round? I feel like they need to use their top 3 pick to help their team in other ways and that a new qb will not help as the current organization stands.

It's far and away the position of greatest need. Forget being "worthy" of a top-5 pick- I just want us to get a QB that gives us hope for the future. A ton of national pundits point out that KC has a ton of great skill position players- Charles, Hali, Johnson, Berry, Houston, Flowers, Bowe (although he'll be gone after this year), even Colquitt- but they have arguably the worst situation in the league at the most important position.

See, the difference is that Cowboys fans don't realize that the championship window for their current team has slammed shut, locked, been boarded over, and is due to be demolished to make room for some townhouses.

It was open ~2007-2009, when they had T.O., young Witten, young Ware, young Ratliff, and an intact Marian Barber. There was enough talent on those teams to win it all. They've been trying to patch up the holes from those teams for three years, to the point where the roster consists of more patches than building blocks.

They need to rebuild, but Jerry Jones is afraid that if they do he'll die before they are ready to make another run. So Romo and Ware will drag the team to 8 wins a season until they too collapse and JJ puts patches over their corpses and tells the media that next year the Cowboys will be back.

If all is so truly lost I'd hope to see a Stanzi start by the end of the year. The guy made Iowa look good with just one good receiver named McNutt.

The crop of rookie QBs this year is impressive as hell. RGIII and Luck are both amazing, and watching Tannehill and Wilson go at it yesterday was great, neither looked at all like it was their 1st year.

Hope so. He looked awful in the preseason and has inexplicably been inactive for the last few weeks, but at this point... why the hell not?

As I look out the windows of my office floor, I can see Jerry's football temple. While he has a huge amount of the blame, I have come to agree with those who support Romo. He isn't the biggest problem. I think they need a true HC. Like Norv and Wade, some coaches are great coordinators but not great head coaches. Unfortunately the door is closing on Romo as he is getting long in the tooth. This morning the Dallas radio hosts were asked: Fine, replace Romo. With who?

They answered Peyton, Breesus, Luck, RGIII. All QBs that will not be available. If Dallas walks away from Romo he will probably start for another team who needs an upgrade at QB. While I wouldn't say Romo is an elite QB, he isn't the problem in Dallas. Usually. All QBs have bad games where they make bad decisions.

Wow, they should just go with no quarterback - there should be some great flying unicorns in the draft next year. Dez Bryant can ride into the end zone impaled on one.

That's the thing though. Even at his age, Romo would be an upgrade for a third or so of the teams in the NFL, if not more.

The problems in Dallas are many, and he is only one part.

How are the Packers overrated? Everything I've seen is saying that they're a good team with flaws, just like every other contender.

If the Packers lose, they have no run game and a porous defense. You can say something similar for every team making a playoff run.

And even if I was a Bears fan it wouldn't change the fact that Tannehill is dogshiat.

I don't know... as much as I hate to say it, the Patriots look like they finally have a good running game, and that's scary.

/Defense is still shady, though.
