The NFL loves the Cowboys and will make sure they get it in, even if it means making sure we lose to solidify their spot.

Anyone thinking I'm crazy? That's cool.

My box of aluminum foil for covering food came with a free hat so ima wear it.
I actually think that if anything, the NFL would give us some calls this week to make sure the NFC East ends competitive where the Raiders, Denver, and KC are close enough for a good division race.

Re: What happens in Vegas....

As per today well, short week, travel, good team, more banged up than them - if we lose and it isnít embarrassing I can deal with it. Still would have a road to wc and technically division. Giants, eagles twice - that ďshouldĒ be 8 wins based on what those teams are doing. Two big games against Dallas but they seem much more winnable now than they did based on both of our recent performances.

If we win today it is really really to be commended. And would make me feel real good about a playoff birth. I feel like they have been such a TEAM - next man up, all on board. It is definitely a credit to RR. Hope they play their fuckin hearts out today. Really canít imagine them not right now. They got that feel. May not equate to a win based on other factors but it bodes well for the future.

There is no way it is orchestrated. You can just look at other winners and losers. I mean Dallas is Americas team - biggest market there is. They have been mediocre at best for as long as we have really.

Even if there is orchestration within it is impossible to make it play out that way.

I think the refs just suck, because they are basically part time employees. But they suck the same across the board. If i ever found out the league was somehow instructing refs to steer games id never watch another one.

Maybe im naÔve but it just seems too far fetched. What is in it for the refs? Are they fired if they donít? Are they having money wired to a secret bank account?

I can see Goodell or others rooting for big market teams obviously but to intentionally screw with the integrity of the game by instructing and or rewarding officials somehow? I donít buy it.

Detroit is winless so at any point their fan base has every right to complain.

I am a semi rational fan. When we lose to teams we should beat, or when we beat ourselves I will call them out. But when we are on a three game win streak, and in the playoff hunt I will applaud. That is how it works. Just a strange time for you to be calling them out is all.
When we were 2-6 I was doing what I do when were 2-6 every year; drinking like a fish a meeting my mouth shut because we were all on the same page here.

Having hope is great and 5 or 6 years ago, I may have been in same boat with you guys. Imo, I've just seen enough to know how this movie ends it frustrates me that some see us as all world after beating a TB team with a bad game and a CAR and SEA squad we should have crushed but barely eeked by.

I remember what happened against BUF, barely, BARELY beating the NYG, needing an effort of high foolishness on ATLs defense for any hope of a win there.

Winning is fleeting for me, I just really want to see this organization be what I really thought they already were when I was younger. An 8-9 season and backing into the playoffs to lose means zero to me.

I agree with you, particularly that the refs are just inept. My point was simply that the NFL's interest would be to have division races that are heating up in December, not ones that are settling down.

I think your problem is in your expectations.

Who goes on the road and crushes Carolina? Look at their schedule. We beat them by 6. Patriots had the best effort in that stadium 24-6. Nobody else except the hottest team in the NFL right now crushed them at home.

Seattle would have been a 20-9 except we didnít have a fg kicker. Now look at Seattles schedule and tell me how often they got crushed by anyone? We actually kicked their ass but for an injury to our kicker and the blocked ep attempt the injury took place on. Forget the score, we absolutely blew them up on both sides of the ball. Again should have been 20-9.

Beating TB with a bad game im not sure i even understand.

Oh without a doubt they want that, but not by the officials giving anyone calls to secure such things. Not imo.

Re: What happens in Vegas....

I am sure it has been posted, but speaking of the NFL hating the Skins.

The next 3 games:

LV has 10 days rest, we go across country after Monday night
We play Dallas after 10 days rest
We play Philly after their bye.

That's some bullcrap.

Yeah, that's not an accident. No way the NFL didn't do that on purpose or not notice it after the schedule was completed, and said fuck them, leave it as is.

Someone needs to take a fine and call out that fucking sham job.

Re: What happens in Vegas....

In terms of refs.

That was about as perfectly evenly called game as possible. The calls I didn't agree with were more rule based, than the refs making the wrong calls.

Good work refs. Don't get to say that very often.

I was thinking the same thing. That was about how a game should be called.

Somewhere between 60-40 either way is reasonable to me for any game, because it's not an easy job, and it's very common where 1 team legitimately commits more valid penalties than the other team. Once it gets past that though, there's gonna be questions.
