I do think that the Cowboys play better when under pressure though and you cannot deny that we have been nothing but entertaining this season.

We are not well but we are still alive ...

It's hard to see either of those two head coaches last night in charge of the same teams next season. If you guys can use last nights game as a confidence booster and go on a run then Garrett can possibly save his job, Andy Reid is without a doubt done in Philly.

The right team won, scoreline was a little bit flattering but we only have ourselves to blame for that.

Spot on. (Unfortunately). :(

And for the record, if Vick continues to play like he does, he'll be ten foot underground before he is 40. A QB cannot put himself under that much punishment and shouldn't need to run as much as he does. Most QB's slide like girls, not Vick, he dives in head first!

jazman 12-11-2012 12:57 PM

Oh and a couple of final things;

Great punt return. I seriously had a preminition that was going to happen before Philly kicked off. Spooky. :lux:

Sky Go decided to cut out on me after that leaving me with only Twitter and NFL.com for score updates which let me tell you is not very amusing especially when they gave the fumble in the end zone a TD to Philly! :eek: :clown: :o

Having seen that the Seahawks have a third jersey I wondered how the Hell they are supposed to wear a grey alternate jersey when the opposition would wear white. :confused:

Not really sure how that'd work!? :eek:

Good result last night all round I think, Cowboys won and have an easy run in so hopefully will make the playoffs and keep Garrett for longer, so he can continue to be crap.

Any doubts about our season being over are completely extinguished and Vick got knocked out anyway, so absolutely no reason not to start Foles the rest of the season and see what he is made of. I think he did ok on debut against what is a very good Cowboys defence. Will be good to see him against the Redskins next week.

Man, football players and/or coaches are really stupid. KC wins the overtime toss and chooses to receive the ball. The Steelers then chose the side that is going towards the end of the stadium that is hard as hell to kick a FG towards.

EDIT: Of course, Cassel just tosses an INT to make it easy for Suisham, who has no problem with a 27 yarder.

I was actually impressed with what he did when he came in to what was a very difficult situation. Did laugh at the early pass he hit the receiver on the back of the head though ...

To be fair that was a very good throw and if Jason Avant hadn't done his hamstring at that very moment it would have been a decent completion. The key play throughout the whole game was Romo avoiding a couple of sacks and stopping the three and out rot. Three minutes and twenty-one points later and it's game over with the better team winning.

I will have to say the NFC East is pretty garbage this year with every team trying their hardest not to get win the division and get in the play offs.

Looks like they waited until Tuesday.

"Because the video showed that Holliday lost possession of the ball before it broke the plane of the goal line, Boylston should have stopped the game to initiate an instant replay review," the league said in a statement.

"Had that occurred, (referee Alberto) Riveron would have had the indisputable visual evidence necessary to overturn the on-field ruling.

"The result of the play should have been a touchback -- not a touchdown -- with Carolina gaining possession at the 20 yard-line."

I watched the Niners/ Rams highlights last night as an alternative to sleeping. And it was one of those pleasently suprising games where I just couldn't stop watching. Rather enjoyable and first tie in four years since Filly/Browns in 08.

Wasn't that the game where neither team realised they could tie the game? I seem to remember Donovan McNabb came out afterwards and said he thought they'd keep playing overtime until there was a winner? :clown:

There was also a rash of SF/Rams players that didn't know you could tie. If you watched it, when the clock ran out nobody seemed to be going out on the field for handshakes for a few seconds.

"Amendola just told me he thought there was going to be a second overtime," Si.com's Peter King tweeted on Sunday night. "Didn't know it was over till he heard from an official."

And it's not just Amendola. Forty Niners safety Dashon Goldson, who's been playing at a Pro Bowl level over the last few seasons, seemed to think that college rules applied.

"I didn't know the rules! I didn't know you could tie in football," Goldson told the media after the game. "It's a competitve sport, man -- you've got winners and losers. You've gotta choose one. I never heard of tying in football -- I really didn't."

So, when did Goldson realize that ties were possible?

"When I saw both teams walking onto the field. Yeah, really. I said, 'Where's everybody going? Did somebody quit? Is this a forfeit?'"
I'm not surprised that they didn't know the rules. They're obviously as oblivious as I am when those refs mumble their way thru the overtime rules. Why the RedZone insists on showing it every time is baffling. I'd rather watch a commercial.

Dolphins nothing short of a disgrace last night.

Our O couldn't move a shopping trolley.

ardeo 16-11-2012 10:04 AM

What's gone wrong with the Phins in the last few Ben?

Things seemed to be going quite well, Tannehill was marshalling the offence and the defence was being solid. Then you seem to have just fallen off a cliff on both sides of the ball.

I made a bold prediction, somewhere, that the Jets would finish bottom of the East, so could do with Phins picking it back up again.

Was that game against the Browns? Thought it was against the Bengals and possibly 2009/10 season?

And yes, McNabb wasn't aware that you could tie a ball game......idiot.

edit: just noticed Amendola's blunder has already been posted.

Carry on... ;)
