    Cowboys got lucky there. Crazy close to an interception.

    I'm not an arbitrary Cowboy hater but those last 2 plays were hilarious. Failure by the receiver to recognize the defense on third, and a missed FG that went straight to curve just around the upright and go back to center like a bullet from Wanted.

    Eagles choked it to hand Dallas the division on a silver platter, Dallas responds with a third straight loss.

    Enough has to be enough with Jerry Jones and Jason Garret. The Cowboys are leisurely walking their way out of the playoffs.

    If the Eagles had their shit together Garrett would already be gone.

    Shhh!

    This is part of the Eagles plan to keep Garrett around! Playing 4D chess right here.

    As a Cowboys fan, I hope they win the division. Then, I hope they host the 49ers in the playoffs, and get blown out so badly, the stadium empties out at halftime.

    Seattle too. No matter what if they make the playoffs they're a 1st round blowout loss and Garret is still gone.

    One thing I've noticed about sports is that when franchises go on a "run" with a particular group of stars, their BEST year seems to end in disaster, and its their WORST year that somehow ends in a miracle win. For example, for years and years the Washington Nationals had these strong teams and they couldn't get out of the first round to save their lives. Then here is the 2019 Nationals, which have some great pitching but it keeps getting injured, they lost Harper to free agency, it looks like the team is really on the decline, and then they come out of nowhere and win it all. Or the best Patriots team of this "run" went 16-0 and choked in 2007, while their worst playoff team was the 2001 edition that got a miracle win in the snow, beat the Steelers without Brady, and then narrowly upset the Rams to win a ring. The 2011 Packers went 15-1 and we're wildly acclaimed as a juggernaut but get destroyed at Lambeau by the Giants in their first playoff game. The 2010 Packers were a forgettable 10-6 team and they go buckwild in the playoffs, winning 3 road playoff games and then beating the Steelers narrowly in the Super Bowl.

    These Cowboys under Garrett had their 12-4 and 13-3 campaigns and then got thumped in postseason. What I kind of expect is that these Cowboys will back into the division title at 7-9 or something and then go on a run and upset the Seahawks at home, then go into New Orleans and Brees will look like he is 56 years old out there and they knock the Saints off, and find themselves in the NFC title game at home vs the Rams, win that and suddenly Jerruh is in the Super Bowl again. I just see it happen in sports SO many times. I would place a wager on the Cowboys in Vegas right now.

    They'll be a 7-9 division champ, with absolutely NO pressure to win, and then they will just relax and play and have fun and beat everyone. Wouldn't be the first time in sports.

Space platforms as in Starcraft. Just a totally fantastic tileset & theme that I'd be very keen to explore. They could do some wild things.

    Cowboys fan, I hope they fire Garret today. My prediction is, Cowboys win the division, and Jerry gives Garret a 5 year contract.
    I'm the root of all that is evil, yeah, but you can call me cookie.

    It blows my mind that Jason Garrett and Ron Rivera will probably still be head coaches in this league next year.

    I can see this happening. Just because Jerry seems as tired with questions about firing him as he is with how the team is performing.

    Honestly I wouldn't count Rivera in just yet. He's a defensive-minded coach in a league that's skewed heavily toward hiring College Legends and Hotshot OCs.

    He won't fire Garret because these games against the Bears and Rams don't matter. If the Cowboys get blown out by the Eagles then I could maybe see Jerry firing him. But even then, if Eli somehow conjures up some old magic and beats the Eagles, therefore making that match up trivial then he could maybe survive a blow out and make it to week 17. Regardless Garret is done as the Cowboys head coach. Only a SB win saves his job and thats obviously not going to happen.

    All I've heard in the past few days since the dude's been fired is how he's such a "great leader of men," and a wonderful coach, as if he was fired for nothing. He'll be a HC next year, for sure.

    The two games being shown are ravens/bills and saints/niners. Too much good stuff.

    Best the Saints offense has looked in a while, nice to have our LT back, and special teams making a big impact too.
    /s

    14 points in the first quarter again, maybe this will be the game they finally score more than 24 points. Not too optimistic based on the rest of the season though, they are dead last in almost every stat after the initial scripted plays are done.

  17. #3017
    Worst the Saints defense has looked in a while...
    /s

  18. #3018
    Season high 31 points in only half a game, and first time over 24 points since halfway through last season.

    Thanks Bill O'Brien for being dumb enough to go for it on 4th down inside your own 40 with 2 min left in the half.

    Could say the same about the niners.

    I will never tire of watching Brees throw to Thomas. I love the can’t guard Mike moniker too.
