    As for Romo's vs Eli's stats... Cowboys only passed 4 more times a game than the NYG did in '08. I wouldn't say Eli's stats are held back by the offense not giving him throwing opportunities.
    You guys do it cuz that's your system. We did it because our Rbs, specifically Jacobs stunk this year. So we had to throw the ball. Oh yeah, other reason why stats suck, it doesn't take into account how our defense put us in a hole every time, so we had to throw the ball. This is for this year..

    Our past years it was a more run oriented offense, though Coughlin would say Balanced offense. I would say it, and I have many, many break downs to prove it from route combos which are reflected in stats which go hand in hand. But mainly my game breakdowns from past years indicate the difference in scheme on the offensive side of the ball.

With the first pick, I wanted Jenkins. I should take a picture of the dent in my wall where I threw the TV remote when we took Felix. lol.
      Oh dear. Well, I wanted Mendehall and Jenkins in that order.

      Rodgers Cromartie over Jenkins??? Sounds like BS.

        I think we all wanted Jenkins, I remember alot of us were po'ed because we didnt take Jenkins first. Just think, if we would have taken Jenkins first we probably would have grabbed CJ with our 2nd.

        • I am a Garrett basher, but I think he's called some good games the past two weeks. Sure everyone will remember the short yardage failures, and he deserves some criticism for that. But he's called some good games overall, and he doesn't seem to be hindering the offense like he has before. Hopefully he can keep it up through the playoffs. This team has had some falters in the past, but if they can stay consistent they could go pretty far in the post season. Time will tell though.

            I thought CJ went 24 -- before Jenkins.

            • I thought you guys shouldve taken Mendenhall over Felix. I liked Johnson more too, but I thought he'd go in the 2nd, and was surprised Tennessee took him in the 1st.

              But you gotta admit, having Choice balances it all out. I actually wasn't a very big Felix Jones fan at all coming out, and I think I said back then that I liked Choice better than Jones.

              Turns out both are damn good, just that Jones can't stay healthy. But if you compare Mendenhall to Choice, I don't know if there is very much of a difference between them.

              They're almost identical. So it balances out. I loved Mike Jenkins coming out and was so pissed you guys got him. I was hoping he'd fall to the Giants. But getting Kenny Phillips in the 1st and Terrell Thomas, who's been a great CB for us in the 2nd was probably for the better.

                      I didn't want Mendenhall. Bunch of guys here did though. I also thought that Chris Johnson would last to the 2nd. Isn't it odd that Jeff Fisher said that he would've taken Felix Jones if we didn't?

                      Imagine if we took Chris Johnson and Desean Jackson?! wow.

                        IRVING, Texas -- Unlike another receiver who used to call Valley Ranch home, Roy Williams isn't much of a popcorn promoter.

                        In fact, he's requesting that Cowboys fans at JerryWorld spend less time munching on popcorn and put more effort into making noise.

                        "Itís not loud because the fans are sitting their watching the JumboTron, eating their popcorn, enjoying the movie on the screen until the game gets exciting at the end to where we need the fans," Williams said. "At the end, thatís when it gets really loud.

                        "But you go to New Orleans, where itís just loud the whole game until we take them out of it. Then when they got back into it, we couldnít hear in the huddle.

                        "Thatís what we need in this big stadium. Youíve got 80,000-plus fans. I understand looking at that JumboTron it gets mesmerizing, but we need them to cheer as well."

                        ------------------------------------------------------------------------

                        Why is it that Dallas Stadium doesn't rock the noise like other places?

                        • I have reasons that I think it isn't loud and they probably wouldn't be appreciated in this thread. But I think it will be very loud come Sunday, its the Eagles for the division championship they better be loud and if they aren't? That would only reinforce my reasons ten fold.

                            I agree with Thumper on the noise level.

                            • FWIW I wanted Mendenhall over McFadden or even Felix Jones in that draft too.

                              Look at the ball control issues the 2 Razorbacks experienced their rookie yrs. compared to Mendenhall, McFadden had 2 turf toes I know but that doesn't excuse his many strips, fumbles, etc.

                              And that fast 40 time did him how much good as a Raider rookie RB? Bernie Pollard chased him down from behind in KC at a 60+-yd. dead run & punched the ball out, lmao. So much for 40 times....

                              And the RB rotation in Dallas s/b MBIII & Tashard Choice, Felix is so eggshell-fragile that he s/b used exclusively on KO returns....that is all.

                                For whatever reasons, I don't think Dallas has ever had much of a home-field advantage. I think the more hardcore blue collar type fans you can get in a stadium, the louder it is. The prices that we charge for tickets aren't going to draw much of that crowd. Too many rich, pretty people on their cells asking some goober relative if they can see them on TV.
