You mean like the other 8 games?
 
2018-11-08 09:52:20 AM  
If this is a must win, Dallas has to do something out of the ordinary, like borrowing another team's offense for the night.  The Iggles would never expect it if they showed up and the Patriots took the field wearing Dallas uniforms.  That's about the only way Dallas is going to score more than 14 points.

LOL, I absolutely adore it when this team is complete crap. I hope Jerry Jones never leaves, Garrett never leaves, Prescott, Elliott, and every other stupid redneck obsolete neocon skidmark stays right where they are. Besides, that's the only place a black man can make decent money in s sh*thole state like Texas. And man, did I laugh my ass off when Kevin Byard from the Titans went and mocked that stupid star at midfield, as if to say, 'Hey jerks, you suck and so does your team logo'. It was just like T.O. back in the day. I just laughed and laughed.

As a Washington fan, I will be rooting for the Giant Meteor in that game.

I was about to go into how unlikely it is for a 3-5 team to make the playoffs (which it still is) but I took a look at their remaining schedule and I guess it's still theoretically possible even though Dallas is hot garbage.

Eagles, Falcons, Redskins, Saints, Eagles, Colts, Bucs, Giants.  So if they beat the Eagles they have hope of beating them the second time too, that's up to 5 wins.  Guaranteed loss to the Saints, that's 5-6.  They lost a close game to the Redskins in week 7 so maybe they win the second one, that's 6-6.  Falcons and Bucs could either blow them out or implode, but I'd bet blowouts, that's 6-8.  Colts are beatable but it's a reach to win that one, and Giants are flaming poo so if they win those two it's 8-8 and that record could actually win the Division because the NFC East is a shambles (now that Philly is strangely off-kilter).

So yeah call it "must win" if you still are holding on to the fantasy that Dallas makes the playoffs, but really you're just fooling yourself - they aren't and they are getting worse as the year goes on.

Absolutely.

I wonder if he will go back to hiring college coaches to try to regain the lustre on the Cowboy star.
I could see Urban Meyer coaching for Jerruh. They have a lot in common

Never bet any money on a division game. Teams get up for them, coaches are more familiar with the tape and tendencies. This game could be a 34-31 track meet, or a 7-6 slugfest.

Eagles could get cocky and assume it's in the bag. Why wouldn't it be? Eagles are coming off a week of rest vs the Cowboys on a short week, and the Eagles have been showing all sorts of disrespect in interviews.

Everyone likes to talk about how professional athletes don't need bulletin board material, but guess what, they do read it and react to it. If Garrett wants to try and save his job there is no better way than punching out the defending champions in their own house.

As an Eagles fan I would thoroughly enjoy seeing them beat up on the Cowboys, but that's not how this division works

Young Dakota Prescott will make all the difference in this game. One way or t'other

The press has called every game this season a "must-win." They have to because that's how you keep eyeballs on the game and keep the conversation going about the team. I'm here, in DFW, and I don't hear any Cowboys fans declaring that we're going to the playoffs.

We know.

After last week's injuries, no. I think it'll be close, with a glorious comeback in the second half falling just short and the Bucs hitting a long FG as the game clock expires for the win.

The spread is Tampa Bay by 3 last I checked, and I have a feeling the game will end up being a push. Washington might be teh best team in the NFC East, but that's like being the least evil dictator, or sanest Floridian. I think Washington Wins the NFC East at 8-8 and gets their collective nuts stomped in the playoffs.

If the Cowboys dont win another game this year, that will earn them a good draft pick. For the Raiders

I hate the Cowboys with the passion of a thousand suns... however, with Prescott and Elliot... I'm really shocked at how f*cking horrible they have been.

Expected them to at least contend.

Sad.

Well, why don't you give it a shot, Mr Seven out of Twenty-Five Posts?

NewportBarGuy: Expected them to at least contend.


We're 3-5 in a dumpster-fire division. I'm not saying we WILL, just that it is technically still possible. And I'm not sure that Dak & Zeke are our problems right now. Anyone who thought we could lose Dez & Witten at the same time, with no comparable replacements, and not feel the sting..... well they may be a little too optimistic to be running the team. Any team, really. I think rec league flag football management may have more cunning.

I suppose I could learn to quit disliking the deplorable Cowboys if there was a good reason to, or at least a replacement for the lulz.
 
2018-11-08 01:57:52 PM  
The best part about the cowboys is the continued absolute failure on the part of Jerry Jones to show he can succeed without Jimmy Jones.

As an Eagles fan... the continued ownership of the cowboys by Jerry Jones is the gift that keeps on giving.

That was in the first quarter, and you'd think that would have fired up Dallas on both sides of the ball for some "not in our house" caliber play. Nope. They played like they know it's all over. The look in Dak's eyes is one of a guy who knows it's falling apart and doesn't know why.

He actually is. He didn't get into the HOF for his dazzling GM stylings. He got in because he made contributions that changed how the league does its business. I'm generally not a defender of his, but I also don't get the intense, white-hot hatred. It's pretty irritating that every story about the Cowboys becomes about him. This story is not even about him, he's not mentioned in the story at all, yet here we are. It's bananas.

This is great! Yes! I actually have a few friends who are Eagles fans. At the end of the day, it's just sports. I appreciate good jokes & level-headed discourse above all else. But I'll still say your team sucks, even if they just won the Super Bowl.
