All hands on deck for all NFC games. We can't afford another loss in the Division. Only the Pitt game is a luxury.

We'll take out Pittsburgh... Romo needs to go back to what he was doing last season, rolling out and being mobile. **** trying to clone Brady if your gonna turn the ball over that much. Anyways I'll be happy having him back, not many other QBs out there better than him.

Felix said he will practice Wednesday and expects to play this weekend.

He said they just decided 1 more day of rest would be good.

Well...this is the game of the year, without a doubt. Win this and, with SF and Seattle coming into Dallas the following two weeks, we are looking at 8-4 going into the final stretch of the season. That would allow us to have a one or two game cushion during that gauntlet of Pitt/NY/Bal/Philly.

If we lose, we're looking at 5-5, and pressure to win basically every week to guarantee a playoff spot. Not just that, but how we look this week will determine whether or not we can "book" the following two games against Seattle and SF. If we play well and win, or at least give the Skins a really tough time, then we should be able to count on wins vs. those two creampuffs. If not....nothing is for sure, and we are probably looking at *gasp* a Cowboy-free January.

It is so surreal that I'm even talking about this.

If we don't win this weekend, we are not tough enough team to overcome in order to make the playoffs.

I was traveling in NY yesterday and overheard a local guy who just ripped the Cowboys for being soft. He called them great front runners who can't win a tight race. All talent and no heart.

Not sure I completely agree but I can see where he would have that opinion after the GMEN mauled us for 200 yards on the ground and we just showed no toughness defenseviely that game. We got the game to 21-14 (or similar) on a TD and promptly gave up a long TD drive.... to his point.

The whole season is Sunday unless we expect all the other "playoff" teams ahead of us to start losing to the likes of the Rams and Arizona.

Rating The New Cowboys:

RB Felix Jones - A+ - Has shown that he can run at the NFL level. One of the Fastest guys on the team, has great burst and is averaging 8+ yards per carry.

RB Tashard Choice - B - Hasn't been given the ball enough, but when has hes made plays. Good on Special teams...

WR Danny Amendola - D - (PS) player.

TE Martellus Bennett - B- - Very fast for a tight end has played good, needs to improve his blocking skills. What about converting him to a WR?

CB Mike Jenkins - C+ - Has shown flashes of being a good cornerback. Great speed, hits hard, and plays with passion.

CB Orlando Scandrick - B+ - Done a good job, is extremely fast looks like we got a steal of a pick.

QB Brooks Bollinger - C+ - Threw alot of bad passes, but did make a couple nice throws. Won't be here next season.

WR Roy Williams - B+ - Has seen the ball much but has made a couple nice catches, expect to see him improve with Romo back, hes a keeper.

OL Montrae Holland - C- - The Weakest Link on the OL... Kosier back soon.

LB Zach Thomas - A- - Great tackler has played better than expected.

P Sam Paulescu - B - Not the best leg, but has done a relatively good job. McBriar is the best.

Interesting. I follow the A&M program pretty closely and the book on him coming out of college was that he is very athletic, but not real fast. Was considered a devistating blocker in college for the TE position.

Aside from being new to the team theres a reason hes not playing instead of Proctor. Bennett is pretty fast for a Tight End hes much faster than Witten. Maybe he would turn into a good possesion WR. Probably not but just an idea.

How about picking up cornerback Justin Miller? Young and fast good on special teams.

But somehow he still managed to get a C - from you? I'm not defending him at all, since there isn't really anything to defend. I'm just wondering how do you grade a guy who hasn't even seen the field and more so how do you give him a passing grade of a C-?

Really? His blocking has been his strength since training camp, and he's been punishing guys in the running game, I have no doubts about his run blocking skills, I've watched him in games put guys on their backs and have the fire to drive them into the ground...He likes to block from the looks of things, and is the perfect TE, moving him isn't an option, he presents a mis-match where he is and will develop into a fine player if he continues to improve.


I would give his run blocking grade an A, he's strong enough to get in there with the big boys consistently and do more then just hold his own, wait until he has one full off-season to get stronger, he's gonna come back punishing people.

Pretty sure most knew but Wade is gonna keep Scandrick in the slot:


Quote:

A few weeks ago, Wade Phillips said he was so impressed with rookie cornerback Orlando Scandrick that he would be the new slot cornerback in the nickel when Terence Newman returns.

That time is now. Newman will start on the outside in the nickel and Scandrick will take Newman's former role in the subpackage with Anthony Henry on his normal right side. This means first-round draft pick Mike Jenkins comes off the field in the nickel. He had started in place of Pacman Jones and Newman.

This further proves Scandrick has been the better of the rookie cornerbacks. Yeah, the one taken in the fifth -- not first -- round. Now, Phillips could have gone with Newman in the slot and Jenkins on the outside, but Scandrick has been too good in the slot and Newman is coming off sports hernia surgery.

- Rick Herrin

I think that's big, Newman has always played well in the slot for us but Scandrick gives us more flexibility now...We will be pretty healthy for this game with the bye week in place.


Portis also looks like he won't play, so there should be 0 excuses this week as to why we didn't play well, it be nice to see a glimpse of the offense that we saw week in and out last year just one full game.

Well, hopefully Jenkins can unseat Henry by next year. I think Henry maybe one of the worst CBs in the league this year and on the wrong side of 30. He looks helpless out there and ZERO turnovers.

I agree. I think Tellus, in a year or two, will be regarded as one of the best, if not the best, blocking TEs in the league.

In fact, I think he could be so good that he's a guy that stays in to pass block and they feel comfortable leaving him one-on-one with a DE/OLB. He's that good.

I have been throwing his name around for awhile, but we looked at some Free Agents the other day and Michael Hawkins was a name on that list.


He was the Packers 5th rd pick in 2005, was a freshman standout at Corner for OU and was the #1 corner in the state of TX his senior year...Not much of that means a damn right now, but he does have the physical tools you look for; 6'2, 185, 4.2 speed, his main knack has been staying healthy but being a hometown guy we could have a nice project if we sign him to our PS.


I've seen him play in person thats why I've always said we should take a look, his coverage skills are legit and he's someone if you stash away on the PS could pay dividends down the line.

TO hopes so:

T.O. doesn't seem too concerned about the Redskins signing DeAngelo Hall. Matter of fact, he hopes he sees Hall on the field Sunday.

"At the rate he's playing, I'm looking forward to a big day," Owens told the Associated Press at his book signing today in New York. "I'm no stranger to playing against him. I've had success against him just as much as everybody else has, so if he's out there, I'm looking forward to playing him."

T.O. speaks the truth. Hall, who was extremely overrated in Atlanta, has been horrible this season. Per Stats Inc., he gave up more yards (556 on 40-of-66 passing) than any other cornerback in the league during his brief stint as a Raider. And T.O. did torch Hall for two touchdowns (and spit in his face) the last time they met.

Of course, T.O. will probably see a lot more of Shawn Springs and Carlos Rogers than Hall this weekend. And he didn't fare so well the last time he saw them despite Tony Romo forcing 18 passes to him.

In a related note, T.O. suggested that his coaches take a look at the things that made the Cowboys successful last season, such as moving him around. Jason Garrett might want to start with the tape of last season's win over Washington, when T.O. lined up in different spots on each of his four touchdown catches.
per dmn blog



It's hard for me to imagine Hall playing alot, I think if they are bold enough to give him playing time then we will take chances in man to man...Roy has been excited about the single coverage that our #2 WR typically gets so I'm interested to see how that works these next few weeks.

That's what they said after he didn't practice Monday and Felix said he would practice today for sure. Now that he hasn't I don't know what to expect.
