Re: The Dallas Cowboys are Awful

I coincidentally just realized it was the preseason. Scratch all of my previous observations.

LOL.
We do this every year...it really means nothing until the season starts. Didn't we discuss this same thing last year and the year before, and the year before?

I'm not worried about our performance in the preseason games, obviously. If you look at the two TD's we gave up, one was a :50 drive that could not have materialized if even one of the completions went wrong, and the other occurred against the third and fourth teamers, which is completely irrelevant.

We were beaten very soundly yesterday in all facets of the game, but that's exactly the kind of thing that will be forgotten thanks to the preseason. The fact that we scored 0 points is not at all indicting of our offense.

Saying that you can't get anything out of the preseason is obviously a terrible oversimplification. It's a wide blanket statement that needs to be self-justifying because it obviously can't be defended. If any of us even get enjoyment of watching preseason games, it would invalidate the statement.

Re: The Dallas Cowboys are Awful

After a Redskin loss, a Dallas loss always makes me feel a little better, preseason or not.

And, unlike our suckage, I think theirs is more long-term. To what I said before I would add that they have shaky depth at WR, at most OL positions, at NT, at LB, and at corner. Looking beyond the preseason, if they are hit by an injury bug, they might be toast, especially if that bug hits the likes of Adams, Gurode, Ratliff, Ware, or Newman.

You can place money on Newman getting hurt.

Yup. The only question is for how long.

I think the Cowboys will win 6-8 games this year, fire Wade, and hire Shanahan.
That same quote has definitey been said about the Redskins other places on this board.

True, but Wade Phillips has already been thrown under the bus by JJ when he (JJ) gave Garrett a lot of $$ to stay as offensive coordinator. Even if the Cowboys go 1 and done in the playoffs, Wade Phillips will not return.

Wade Phillips blew a gasket a least three different times.

On the other hand, the Raiders are young and talented. If they had a quarterback somewhere on their roster, they could be a playoff contender...

you have got to be kidding right? 1st preseason game, and your calling the cowboys horrible. If I remember the patriots, colts, eagles and even our skins back in the day looked pretty damn bad in the preseason and played well and a few of the formentioned won the superbowl. So seriously..ease up on calling teams bad after one preseason game, thats just stupid

I expect Dallas to be worse this year. Their line is suspect and they got rid of their best receiver. Wade is under a lot of pressure and Jones is more worried about selling seats than football right now.
