just read this whole thread for the first time...
the Cowboy hatred on this board is strong....AND NOW GONE
my quick thoughts after reading this:
-McNabb is back to being an "elite" QB in the NFL...his injury problems last year made me forget how great he is....Even as a Dallas fan I can't say who is better between Romo and McNabb.
-the game wasn't as close as it seemed...I don't give a damn how many blown facemask calls the refs made, if they would have done thier job right (not blown the whistle and called a TD on that Jackson fumble) then Pacman (who was heads up, and saw that it was a fumble and was runningtopick up the ball) would have returned that all the way for a TD against all those offense players that can't tackle or run for sh*t....also Philly was basically handed TWO FREE TDs from Romo mistakes (the endzone fumble and the Samuel int).....Dallas was clearly the better team IMO
look at Adam Jone (#21) at the :30 mark here:
that would have been returned for a TD....but the refs were just as boneheaded as Jackson was
-all that being said I still think (yeah I know it's still early) that Philly is the 2nd best team in the NFC...too bad that we are both in the same division because that means one of us won't get a bye week....and we could meet in the playoffs without it being the Championship game...
-someone said that Roy's injury was a good thing for Dallas....that is VERY VERY wrong. He leads the team in tackles year after year and we don't use him on 3rd downs anymore anyway....look for teams to get more rushing yards on Dallas now that Roy isn't in thier to smash thier head off.....he WILL be missed, I don't give a damn how overrated he is....he is still solid.
-yes, I would trade Jenkens for Desean in a heartbeat. But that is easy to say NOW....thier is no telling what either will be like 3 years from now, so I am happy with Jenkins (who made a TD saving block btw...looking good)
