Re: Vikings Run Up The Score: Brooking vs. Pat Williams

Someone needs to tell Brooking that Jared Allen would eat his intestines. And Pat Williams would eat him up like a rack of ribs while squatted down teabaggin Jerry Jones.

I hate dallas more than i like winning.

Re: Vikings Run Up The Score: Brooking vs. Pat Williams

Here's what pisses me off about the Cowboy loving sports media. During the Dallas game I heard the announcer speak of an incident that occurred during the Cowboys training camp. Supposedly Keith Brooking assaulted someone on his team for talking back to him during practice. The announcer gleefully spoke of the incident as If Keith Brooking did the right thing by punching his team mate in the face. When Michael Westbrook did it, he was labeled a thug, and every other derogatory term one can think of. But when Keith does it, he's a stand up guy.

People aren't cry babies for thinking that running up the score is classless and/or dumb. I thought it was classless and dumb in 2007 and I still think it is classless and dumb in 2010, regardless of who is running up the score. I still have no idea why someone would risk injury to his starters and needlessly show more of his playbook when a "W" is well in hand.

I know that some people want to make a statement, but what kind of statement is made when a key player blows out his knee while running up the score? That the coach takes unnecessary risks with multimillion dollar assets?

Also, I was just a teenager when Gibbs left, but when did Gibbs run up the score?

Re: Vikings Run Up The Score: Brooking vs. Pat Williams

I don't think any team should have compassion for the other. Especially at the professional level. In the NBA for instance teams are blown out on a nightly basis. And I've never seen any of them crying, or anyone calling the other team classless for doing so. It's your job to run up the score, not mitigate the feelings of your opponent.

Re: Vikings Run Up The Score: Brooking vs. Pat Williams

When you have a chance to score, score....the game is really that simple. Yeah, I remember the whiners here when Skins got pummeled by the Pats. It was a sad and pathetic spectacle too. Don't get mad, get even.

He has walked off the field refusing to shake the opposing coaches hand. He was involved with another man's wife. He was fined for cheating. He's pretty much been proven to be all those things so what's the problem with calling him what he is? You don't seem to have a problem with calling out our own players or members of the Warpath. A lot of people were pissed after that game but they were just stating the facts about Belecheat. As far as the Cowgirls, they beat Philly pretty bad in the playoffs, I don't recall any whining about running up the score like some sort of injustice was done after that game. And my main point is, I damn sure didn't go to a Cowgirls board to whine about New England like Dallas fans are doing here about Minnesota.

Re: Vikings Run Up The Score: Brooking vs. Pat Williams

Why do we feel the need to bring up Belichick's personal life? Futher, it has nothing to do with this thread.

Back to the topic, Cowboys are low-life scum. And it hurt Troy Aikman's, and the media at large, little feelings that he couldn't smell Romo's jock for another week. Yeah, right!

I can't wait to see the signs in the opposing stadiums next year thrashing Brooking for boo hooing.

Your main goal is to beat the opponent, but you don't want to lose key players to injury in the process. What is the point of running up the score and risking injury to your players in a game that has clearly been won? Only an insecure person or a moron would do that IMO. Once the game is won (i.e., up by 3 scores with 3 minutes left), call off the dogs.

Re: Vikings Run Up The Score: Brooking vs. Pat Williams

If the Cowboys felt the game was "over," then on the preceding drive, when they were on offense, they should have been taking knees to indicate such. instead, they were going for touchdowns with a hope of winning the game. the cowboys werent acting like the game was over, so why should the vikings?

Bingo. It works both ways. If the game was over, and if there was such a risk of injury, the Cowboys should have pulled Romo, Austin, Ware, and a few others. That would have sent the strongest signal that the dogs should be called off. Why should the Vikes fold up the tent, and let Romo and Co. take the field to pad their stats. And weren't the Cowboys talking trash during the week?

As long as the Cowboys are competing with every intention to score, I really don't get the reasoning that the Vikings should have called off the dogs.

All good points, but the Cowboys' actions don't dictate what is best for your team. When there are 2 minutes left in the game and you are up by 24 points, I think it's safe to take a knee or run out the clock. I don't think you can justify putting Brett Favre's shoulder or Peterson's knee at risk at that point, regardless of what the Cowboys are doing.
