Bucs will win this game.. on a beautiful saturday night, (thank god for the little things in life:)

Here's what to like about the Bucs;
1. They beat the saints!
2. They beat the Falcons!
3. On ANY NFL sunday/saturday, anything can happen
4. Freeman was a stud last year..
5. The coach for the Bucs, his job is on the line.. So there will be no tanking by the Bucs..
5. Bucs have home field advantage..

Here's what not to like about the Cowboys
1. They have lost 2 in a row, including a game they blew against the "mighty" cardinals..
2. They gave up 510 yards against the GMEN..
3. They are only 2-4 on the road..
4. Garret is a suspect coach, I have never heard of ANYONE icing their own kicker..
5. Cowboys will crumble under the pressure, if this is in fact a close game.. Cowboys may be the most over rated team in the NFL..

Nevermind that the Bucs have lost a whole bunch in a row!
Nevermind that Freeman kind of blows this year!

Theres a fine line between genius and insanity..
If I get the Bucs right, then we will know which one I really am:)


The Bucs jumped out to 1 14-0 lead. And promptly allowed the Jags to score 41 straight points. They didn't just win in a mild upset, they beat that ****!!! Jacksonville is averaging 14.8ppg AFTER adding those 41 points to their season totals.

"2. They gave up 510 yards against the GMEN.."

The same New York team that gave the undefeated Packers fits. NY has the ability to rise to the occasion with Elite Eli.

"4. Freeman was a stud last year.."

Last year is ancient history, my friend. This season Freeeman has looked like the QB project people though he was comning out of Kansas State:

61.2%, 241 ypg, 6.57ypa, 12 TD's, 18 INT's, with a 72.5 Passer Rating.

Dallas is still in the hunt for the NFC East title and they end the year with a game against the Giants. They need to take it 1 game at a time and this game is just what the doctor ordered for them to get well.

DeMarco Murray might be out for the season with a broken ankle, but they dusted Felix Jones off last week and he looked pretty dang good. He ran the ball 16 times for 106 yards.

Dallas wins this game, 28-13.


We all know freeman is not having the best year statistically.
however if he can keep it close, freeman does very well under pressure, getting alot of 4th quarter comebacks last year..
dallas does not do well under pressure..
you could argue, they totally blew the game vs CARDS..
and they kind of let NY off the hook, blowing a 12point lead in the 4th quarter..
i know alot of people defend romo, (CCC), on this site..
but the dude aint clutch, never has been, never will be..
how many play off games has romo won?
see what I mean..
he should by now, have at least one masly playoff win!
poor chap, he does try sooo hard:)

Tampa was unfortunate..
thet never recovered from their london trip..
jet lag is a brutal thing..
they went into a funk with jet lag, and they never got out of it..

I know im going out on a limb here..
boredom at work makes you do crazy things..
but tampa did beat 2 fantastic teams earlier in the season..
and dallas feasts on the weak..
if cowboys had GMEN schedule, they aint sniffing playoffs..

Yeah, bucs lost ugly to jags..
only cause jags RB, had the game of his life..
lightning does not strike twice in the same place, does it?


"We all know freeman is not having the best year statistically.

Last year when they had a freaking cake schedule!!!

"but tampa did beat 2 fantastic teams earlier in the season.."

Raheem Morris is a dead man walking. The Bucs have tanked after a 4-2 start. They have lost 7 games in a row, outscored, 225-119 in the process.

"how many play off games has romo won?"

How does this matter in the Bucs game? It doesn't. That's a separate topic we can do later if you like.

"Yeah, bucs lost ugly to jags..
only cause jags RB, had the game of his life."

MJD ran the ball 27 times for 85 yards. Not the game of his life, 1 of his worst games this year.

TB is 29th in total ypg allowed, 27th in passing ypg, 28th in rushing ypg allowed, and 31st in scoring defense.

Dallas is 6th in passing ypg, 14th in rushing ypg, and 10th in scoring offense. They are going to work over the TB defense and win in easy fashion.


Damn DJ, you are the biggest glass half empty kind of guy I ever met!
how dare you say MJD had a bad game..
he score 4TDs and including recieving yards got 135yards!
MJD broke the franchise record for most TDs in a game..
afterwards, MJD said the game meant alot to him,
cause he broke his buddy/mentors record..
the only reason why MJD didnt get the game ball was cause jags wanted to make the new coach feel welcomed..
You have fallen in love with stats too much DJ..

If tampa can reduce their turnovers,
(they committed 7 vs jags!)
then as the saying goes:

"we got ourselves a game!"

And we all know dallas blows more in close games,
than justin biebers new song!
when it comes to dallas, nothing should suprise you..

I look forward to an apolofy fan mail from you:)

The fact that I was able to come up with 3 arguments,
(mostly trashing the cowboys)
says alot..
dallas is the most over rated team in the NFL..


"If tampa can reduce their turnovers,
(they committed 7 vs jags!)

Asking the Bucs to reduce their turnovers is asking a lot, HCF. Tampa is

Dallas has 15 INT's and has forced 12 fumbles, recovering 8. They get after the ball and have an excellent defense.

They are 16th in total ypg allowed, 8th against the run, and most importantly, 16th in ppg allowed. As opposed to TB being close to the bottom of the NFL in all those categorie.

Offensively and defensively, Dallas is the better team.

This is a must win game for the Cowboys and I expect Dallas to come out and dominate the Bucs. Jason Garrett just got the seal of approval from Jerry Jones and that has to scare him to death. Wade Phillips got that and was fired soon after.

Dallas wins easily.

"dallas is the most over rated team in the NFL.."

Sorry, that's the 49ers.

Stick to soccer.

Icing the kicker works maybe 10 percent of the time. It is not Garrett's fault that his kicker can't handle the pressure. Romo will light up the Bucs. (I cant beleive Im actually defending the Cowboys)

QUOTE(#2):

cowboys are 2-4 on the road baby..(You probably guessed it, Im incredibly bored at work, ha ha)..

The Bucs are 3-4 at home with one of those coming against the Colts which doesn't count so they realistically are 2-4 at home. I hate to say it but the Cowboys will win an ugly game on Saturday.
