NFL Talk

Tampa Bay was a team that I expected the Cowboys to beat and they did. The win wasn't particularly glorious, but we take them where we can. Romo seemed off the first half and the run defense was stinko malo but maybe they drank a few beers at half-time because they played better in the second half. Receivers looked good, but I don't know if that is because they are good or because the Tampa defense had a few breakdowns. Who cares. I would like to have seen more of Felix Jones, though. Next week the Cowboys face the Giants. I just watched the Giants -Redskins game: pretty good D but fairly anemic offense.

Donovan McNabb broke a rib so we may be seeing Joe Mexico at QB once his suspension is complete.

Matt Stafford: 3 ints in loss to New Orleans.

Jake Delhomme: muy stinko malo. 4 turnovers, at least. I lost count.

Adrian Peterson: unreal. One of his t.d. runs will be repeated all year. I can't even begin to describe it, so look for it on the interweb.

Midway through the 4th, San Francisco is leading the Cardinals, 20-14. Being from Dallas, I hate the 49ers as a matter of principle, but I like Mike Singletary. I have no particular love for the Cardinals, but I do like Larry Fitzgerald, who is simply tremendous and who I covet for the Cowboys.

Tonight: Bears verses Packers. GO BEARS.


  1. Watching that game now late in 4th quarter and after the game I expect the defenses to join together to form on their own team and say their offenses can go suck sand.

  2. Cutler was less than impressive. And, has there ever been anyone who looks LESS like an NFL quarterback than that guy?
