NFL  > Dallas Cowboys  > Looking good.... or same-oh same-oh?
October 25, 2013, 04:28 PM
As Dallas sits atop of the venerable NFC (L)East with an impressive 4-3 record (woot woot!!) they are off to Detroit to look for another road win.

Will this be a win to give Dallas a 5-3 record at the mid-way point or will they drop this road game and AGAIN be mired at .500 with a 4-4? After the tough-ish game in Philly last week and the need to travel again I fear it will be the 4-4 on Sunday evening. Over the last few years anything beyond .500 has been out of reach. Will this team prove any different? The defense seemed improved last week against a team that HAD been putting up yards/game every week. Foles seemed to fold (pun intended) and Barkley got to see NFL speeds rather than practice speeds. Stafford and Mega-tron will prove to be a greater challenge. Romo and Bryant almost mirror Detroit's duo; we'll have to wait until Sunday to see which team wants it more. With what record will Dallas get on the plane Sunday afternoon?

Gonna be tough,but not impossible.

Need a better offensive performance than last week. Too many penalties and dropped balls.

If it wasn't for the cheerleaders I'd find another to to root for just IMO.

This should be a great game to watch. Shoot out? Detroit's defense seems much improved. Like every team in the NFL each week, Dallas is going to have to protect Mr. Romo. And Reggie Bush can cause some trouble, too. That guy is very hard to match up with in the passing game. Not sure what happens in this game. I want Dallas to win but I went with Detroit in the Week 8 picks, in a squeaker.

Yes IMO the Lions have the better defense and the offense is getting a healthier Megatron this week.

Pay back time for Schwartz being a total Jack-WAD after they won here 2 years ago when Dallas blew a HUGE halftime lead.

Schwartz and Jack-WAD? Bit redundant isn't it? He's a total tool and a real Jeff Fisher product. That was the year that Dallas was always blowing leads.

The Cowboys had a good defensive effort against the Eagles and will need another good effort against the Lions. The Cowboys offense has been performing very well.

And there you have it. Get 4 gifts (hat off to Lee) and then finally get the sacks to get them off the field on downs with 2 and a half minutes to go. Late Breaking News RHG--you can't run!! Yet you try three abysmal runs and Romo is on the sidelines BEGGING to throw and you say no. Well the first down would have ended it but yet you took the pu/ssy's way out and paid the price RHG. You suck.

October 27, 2013  04:39 PM ET

Maybe I'll go to the NFL network and see Romo have to do a press conference and make excuses for RGH's poor play calling and clock mgmt.

Talk about a major PiS/S poor embarrassing performance for the ages. OMG.

What a waste of Sean Lee's talent to be associated with that group.

TxHeat,
I think the talent margin difference is so thin within the NFL that it really comes to coaching. Look how Andy Reid turned around the Chiefs. This is on the coaches. What did the secondary have going on in their heads? How does this happen when you KNOW they will pass; just like Detroit knew Dallas would run x 3 on their last possession? The 3 runs when Detroit had 8 in the box was just stupid. Again. RHG is no genius. Excuse me while I go look for our cat so I can kick it to feel a bit better <<kidding>>

when you give up about 600 yards (I stopped counting) you can pretty much blame everybody. As far as the cat goes, I think Mother has perfected the kick the cat routine. LOL

Someone better do a safety check on Otis!!

October 27, 2013  05:31 PM ET

Ouch, that one smarts. Had to do a double take to verify the Chargers were really on a bye and not on the field playing the Lions.

Gotta say, great heads up play by Stafford at the goal line with no time to ponder the situation or talk to coaches. He did that on his own and was willing to own the result, which he will happily do since he scored. And Durham getting behind the Dallas secondary for 40 yards with under a minute and no timeouts? Wow.

Sadly both our teams have a decade of .500 and self-destruction. Now I can't watch highlights and NFL channel for the next week. Man I'm pisssssed

All those secondary guys guarding against one thing and they couldn't do it. Shameless and disgusting!!
