WTF: Cowboys and Eagles Game?
Cowboys had a pass interference call that enabled them to get to the goal and 3 chances to tie up the game. An interception on the second pass and the Eagles run it all the way back.

Terrell Owens is a scrub, but Bledsoe takes blame. Eagles played well.

I'm still pissed as a Cowboy fan. :argh:

1. The 12th man was huge today.
Awesome game, shut T.O. and Glenn right down. The Xmas game is going to be tough.

2. Drew Bledsoe is dreadful
I can't believe how bad a quaterback he is. No Cowboy fan, but I can't imagine Parcells is going to hang with that guy much longer.

3. Cowpies had two different chances to tie it.
First was from midfield(?). That pick was TO's fault. He came off the line at less than full speed, so Bledsoe threw it to the point anticipating where he would be. TO failed to adjust or even try to knock the ball away from the defender. Punk.

Second pick, probably Witten's fault. It appeared Bledsoe thought he'd curl his route the other way.

Bledsoe, as much as he's been through, it still a top-quality QB. After how many times he got sacked yesterday, I'm surprised he was still in the game at the end.

4. Depressing...
T.O. torments the Cowboys as a member of the 49ers and Eagles, and now that he plays for the Cowboys, he sucks. Bledsoe is horrible. How is he an improvement over Testaverde? - another veteran who makes rookie mistakes at critical times during the game. Oh well, at least there will be a rematch. Congrats Eagles.

5. Rematch?
You mean another opportunity for the Eagles to make the girls regret their off season business?

6. By Christmas Day...
the Eagles wiil be eliminated and playing out the string.

The Eagles simply cannot run. Right now, their offense is about 80-90% passing. I don't think that they can continue winning over the long haul with that kind of inbalance.

From what I saw on Sunday, the Eagles rush defense is also suspect. Julius Jones basically ran through the middle of the Eagle defense at will throughout the game.

Look for both of those factors to take their toll on the Eagles as the season continues.

8. We intentionally gave up the run this week.
They played 7 in the box so they could take the receivers out of the game. You have to pick your poison and it was felt that eliminating the passing game was more important. It was quite effective and the rushing yards given up were harmless. We stop the run when the running back is the bigger threat so don't worry about that. One thing that is a problem is that we score too fast which keeps the defense on the field all day. The Cowgirls ran nearly 50 more plays than the Eagles because of it. As the weather gets colder Reid goes to the run more so I'm not worried on that account either. Westbrook can run just fine and so can Buckhalter. As far as playing out the string, you're nuts, we're reclaiming the division and taking the second seed in the NFC. Chicago is getting number one because they don't play anyone all year. They will do what they always do after a good regular season, lose in the first playoff game. The road to the Super Bowl goes through The Linc again this year.

T.O. is going to cause the Girls to implode completely or cause Parcells to quit. You heard the shit he was spouting after the game and the Cowboy players were saying the Tuna intentionally kept him from being featured. Plus he had some serious alligator arms going when the ball was thrown to him. Good luck dealing with that idiot, he knows he made a huge mistake leaving here.

9. The LAST thing I want to do on Christmas Day is watch the NFL.
Hell, the Redskins have ruined several Thanksgiving days.
