Man those Dallas Cowboys looked bad in yesterday's opening game.
They didn't convert a 3rd-down until the 2nd-half.
Zeke only had 15 carriers, but all Teams will try and stop the 'Boys running game this season, because we can't throw the ball.
Dak couldn't hit me with a pass, so this is going to be a long season.  ?

Didn't watch the Cowboys. Watched some of Steelers Browns. Left the bar thinking the Steelers had it. But no! Neither team played substantially well but I call it a net win for the Browns. As for the Cowboys they should beat the Giants next week.

don't give up, they may turn it around. the Broncos do that a lot - string of suck games, then suddenly kick into gear. OR start off in gear, and later suck for 3 games in a row.

Or in Dallas' case, start a string of suck games, then suddenly continue sucking.

Speaking of NO, is their defense going to return to its usual self this year? Last year they made such strides, and everyone started talking SB again (including me). Then it was another 80+ point special last week, with the Saints on the losing end. Can't they get it together on D?

I think NO's D will pull it together again this year. The fluff papers are still saying they have two "impact rookies" on D, who need a little time to adjust to the speed of the game, etc. It's difficult to accurately predict, honestly, with as little as i've really watched the last several seasons. Baseball and basketball have really been getting a lot more of my attention. The Saints put my eyes on the screen a bit more last year than the few years before that, during which i rarely saw them outside the PrimeTime games.

But from what i have seen, i expect the Saints' D to improve a lot over the course of the season. I wouldn't be too surprised to see some peaks and valleys in their play. I think they'll be somewhat unpredictable for opposing offensive coordinators, which is something of a double-edged sword, but it's a hell of a lot better than a dull rusty sword.

How are you feeling about those Pats, Peggy Sawyer? Thinking Ringkings?

I'm pretty confident this year. The defense looked solid in the opener. The OL is unproven, but I trust Scarnecchia to make something serviceable out of it. The wideouts are a concern, but at least Edelman will be back on week 5. If we stay healthy, we should have a strong year, especially in this division.

Although, the 'Boys won last night, the Offense still lacks an identity.

Yeah, we want to run the ball with Zeke, but every team in the League knows that. So every team puts 8,9 men in the box to stop the run. I feel it's necessary to throw the ball in order to run it.
I was glad to see Dak take a chance and go for the long pass to Austin for the TD. And, honestly, he looked pretty good throwing the ball all evening.

How 'Bout them Cowboys! yay yay yay yay yay yay

So... in news relating to other teams...

The Saints beat the Browns, but not exactly comfortably. And, um, it's the Browns. A win is a win in this league though. But still, the Browns gave us a game. Not exactly brushing shoulders off after that win.

A loss is a loss too. Those Jags looked MIGHTY convincing.

The 'Boys beat the Lions in the last seconds of the game. Which means, they'll loose against Houston, Sunday. Sad

Man, their pass-defense is poor. Glad I saw the DB-coach jump on the players for not playing better. Way to go, Kris Richard! :goof:

Jerry mentioned today, in his weekly radio broadcast..."The Cowboys haven't had a #1 Receiver in several years." Just damn!

My 'Boys are so bad, it's tough watching them on a weekly basis. Add to that, the Head Coach has no huevos to try and keep the team in games.

Damn Cowboys! Mad
Damn Jason Garrett! Mad

Sunday's 40 points, were the most points put up since Spot was a pup.
Since the beginning of the season, the 'Boys have, lost one. Win one. Lost one. Win one. Lost one. Win one. That means, they should loose against the Redskins.
Man, can I afford to pick against the 'Boys this Sunday?

Hodge, with Peggy Sawyer and IWBLOST in your Pick'ems league, the real question is...

can you afford NOT to pick against them?

They just beat an elite team, they're pretty much guaranteed to lose to divisional rival schmucks.

What I try to determine is, what they might do. If I can pick the same teams, as the "Showtime" Lakers announcer, Chick Hearns, used to say. "No harm, no foul!"

The Dallas Cowboys acquire Amari Cooper from the Oakland Raiders. The price...a first-round pick in the 2019 draft.

I guess its a good pickup. At least it'll give us Cowboys fans a chance to see if Dak Prescott is the future of the franchise.

It was really nice watching football this past Sunday with Dallas having a bye. I didn't have to drop antacids like Junior Mints.
They're back at it this Sunday against the Titans. Can't believe they're the favorite as well. Oh, wait a minute! They're on the road, plus this week they're scheduled to win. omg

Going back to the Cooper deal...Not sure I like the price paid. What I said when Dak and Zeek were rookies, that great O-line, the best in the NFL, and guys like Witten, Dez, other skilled veterans to throw to, Zeek to hand the ball to, the NFL was an easy life for Dak Prescott. But what was going to happen when that line thinned out, Witten and Bryant retired, etc, I asked as I watched Russell Wilson dodge oncoming rushers like he was playing football on I-5. I think it is indicative of just how much Tony Romo was damaged goods that he could get to a Super Bowl surrounded by all that talent. Not Elliott of course, but he had solid RBs too.

Cooper giving Dak a nice veteran target is a great storyline, but I don't seem to recall his name getting mentioned much a couple of weeks ago when the Seahawks and Raiders played at Wembley. Might have had something to do with the fact that Carr was under so much pressure that 90% of his attempts were to 3 yards or less downfield.

TBC, Cooper didn't look bad in last night's game. It was the other 45 players you bring to a game that sucked.
I'm going to put this out there...I don't think Dak is a franchise-QB. JMO! He missed to many throws in the game, and turned it over twice. He now leads the League in QB turnovers.
It was a truly disappointing game. Especially against a team with the same record.

Um. The Brock Osweiler comparison is getting grimmer and grimmer.

The 'Boys violated their "win one lose one" quest for mediocrity, Hodge. I'm sorry to see it, too. The next couple games don't look to offer them a lot of opportunity to get back to .500 either.

I saw a rumor today that Dez Bryant is in talks with the Saints. :O

...They loose a game they should've won against the Titans, then win one against the reining Super Bowl Champions. And, as you mention, they go against their loose-one/win-one MO.

Needless to say, I picked them to loose against the Eagles. It was so easy win they were predictable.  ?

Did Sunday night's game show us that the Philly Eagles are a worst team than the Cowboys?

I thought the 'Boys "D" played an excellent game. Although, they only sacked Wentz twice, they harassed him on a consistent basis.

Then, the Offense decided they'd play a much better game then we've seen throughout most of the season. Plus, Zeke ran off 151 yards. Something he's found hard to do.

The 'Boys' offense definitely played better than i've seen them this year, and most of last year too, but the Defense definitely went out and won that game in Philly Sunday. So many critical stops.

Another big win for Dallas this week, and they helped the Saints by beating Atlanta, too.

Thanksgiving features the Cowboys playing Washington for first place in the NFC East! Then the Saints host the Falcons!! One week after that, the Saints and Cowboys meet for TNF!!!

They looked pretty good, HRD!

But, as I mentioned in another post, the Saints are the "Best" Team in the League. I've suspected their Defense, but "it" has come thru over the last couple of weeks.

Personally, I think Brees has taken over the lead in the MVP race. Plus, the League likes to give it to all-around great guy too.

I'll admit it, you called Brees for MVP before i even thought it, and unless the Saints come down a big peg or two, you might be right.

Huge game this Thanksgiving.

If the 'Boys can beat the Redskins, they'll take over the lead in the NFL-East. Plus, they have an easier schedule remaining (not including the game against the Saints).

Look, Hodge, dear friend: Both our houses are in jeopardy this Thursday. I've been studiously avoiding not only any mention of the upcoming game, but also of Thursday night itself, around the home; but Mrs. Mo is no fool.

If there is only ONE game i honestly could live with the Saints losing the rest of this year, it's this one.

I've heard it said that a happy wife makes for a happy life. So peace reigns in Casa De Mo.

Obviously, i'm not thrilled that the Saints lost this week. I earnestly hope that they recover from this loss, and learn from it. I also earnestly hope that there's not a postseason rematch this year. Sometimes a good team needs a loss in the second half of the season to remind them that they're human and that they play in the "Any Given Sunday" NFL; hopefully last night's game was that wake-up call that the Saints need to remind them what it takes to consistently win in that man's League.

With that said, congratulations to the Dallas Cowboys and their organization and fans on a hard fought and well earned win. The Cowboys' defensive unit has truly coalesced and in my opinion has been playing at a level equal to the best defenses currently in the league.

This was the debate on "sports-radio" this morning, will this be a wake-up call for the Saints.

I'm more worried that the 'Boys gave a recipe to the rest of the League on how to defeat New Orleans.
Make no doubt about it, I don't believe Dallas is a Super Bowl team. Yet! So, I'm still pulling for the Saints to make it all the way.
But, that "way" has to lead thru the Superdome. Obviously, every team is better at home, but this is more obvious for the Saints.

This maybe the best "front-seven" in football.
But, our LBs, Jaylon Smith and Van Der Esch, are unquestionably the best tandem at the position.

A couple of guys named Wright and Wagner just might contend that comment.

I'm a little disappointed in the Saints right now. If they had won then that that result coupled with the Seahawks probable demolition of the yet-again-miserable 49ers would have put the Hawks in the driver's seat for the top wild card spot regardless of any other results. It's still going to take a loss by the Skins to accomplish that, but they are playing the Giants and I don't want to make any predictions there.

Tough game against the Eagles, another NFC-East rival, this Sunday.
Saving grace...the game is at AT&T Stadium in Dallas.
Plus, with the Eagles win last night against the 'Skins, puts the 'Boys 1 full game up in the Division.
So, I'm thinking, even if we loose Sunday, the Eagles still have to play the Rams.

It would suit me like an expensive suit. yay What a great game!

The game was under control until Dak's miscues gave the Eagles life. If he could just hold onto the ball. ? I don't care that muck about the INTs. Those come with the territory. But, the fumble turnovers. I scream bloody murder when those happen.

Man, was the trade for Amari Cooper worth it! Over 200+ yards in the game, plus 3-TDs. You can't ask much more from the guy. woooo

He's just glad to be out of Oakland. Sea Bass feels the same way.

Okay, so if the Seahawks win tonight and then again next Sunday at Leave Early, Guys (aka CenturyLink South, their home away from home where they have never lost) they will clinch a Wild Card with two weeks remaining and be more than likely headed for a Wild Card Game tilt against the Cowboys.
