  • Know what's crazier? They play two games in like four days, I think. They have two week one preseason games. I'm not used to this crap...Romo already has a "tired" arm....we dont need this.

    And yeah, the games will be a little less exciting without half our rookie class again. But at least we have a bunch of healthy sophomores to watch now. haha. I just wish we had some better backup QBs to watch.

    Also...I sure as hell hope our 2nd/3rd team defenses have improved, do you remember how embarassing they were last year? That backup LB core was awful preseason last season. The Raiders embarrased us last year. But Butler and J Williams are playing much better these days. I'm excited.

    Thanks BoneKrusher^

I dont care who the QB was, they were getting their ass handed to them that week. Colombo kept getting turned around and the left side continued to collapse, regardless who was in at LT.

      Romo doesnt deserve much blame on that game at all.

      On a happier note...4 days until we play. YAY
      I don't even understand how some people gave Romo some hate for that game. I know being the Cowboys' QB will bring some scrutiny, but no one is going to look like an all star when a guy is in their face within two seconds of the snap. Some of my friends keep saying that the Vikings game showed that Romo is still erratic, but that just means that they don't understand that you have to actually drop 3, 5, or 7 steps before you can throw the ball. Damn Madden players!

      • I thought that's what I was saying about the Vikings loss, that Romo went into Hyde Mode with the turnovers b/c the OL was failing in major ways & he was running for his life. Perhaps should've been clearer....

        That backup LB core was awful preseason last season.
        When Bobby Carpenter was a starter, what does that say about the quality of the backups?

        • Yea the Raiders did embarass us lol, people on DMN were freaking out after that game lol but what's new.


          Anyway, Romo's arm is tired but I don't expect him to play much except maybe the 3rd game. The first 2 games he needs 1 series, maybe 2. I see no reason to play him a few quarters into either game.


          I'd much rather take starting the season rusty because we all know this season is down the drain if Romo is injured, then there have always been those kinda hits where he strained a back or something, could come back and play but he was favoring it the next month or so.

          • I heard they were actually letting AOA return some kicks today. Pretty surprising since he's just getting in there today off of injury.

            • I hope he gets to play Saturday. I'd like to see what he can do on the returns.

                I don't. I wanted him on KR more then anything once I figured out we had him, but with that shoulder injury I don't know if I trust him there right away. Not unless it's 110% healthy, which I question if it is already.


                I still think he would have been our best KR man for awhile, he has instincts back there most guys on our team don't have.

                • The HOF game is so anti climatic. You get all excited bc its the first game of football in the season, and then you watch the game and its just such a bore.

                  The starters will play like 5-9 snaps. The 2nd string, which is pretty much your bench will see maybe a quarter. And the rest of the fluff left over sees the rest of the game.

                  I think the most frustrating part of preseason is you want to see your rookies out there and what they're capable of, but it's so hard getting an accurate idea of them (especially offensive players) bc they're playing with a 3rd string oline, 3rd string qb who is usually so awful its painful to watch, and you just can't tell at all if he's doing well out there or not.

                  I guess you can evaluate oline and dline, maybe a little LB action, but that's about it.

                  • Actually phillips said he is looking for the 1st teamers to play 2 series. Unless the offense has a 10 play drive. Then the 2nd teamers will play into the 2nd half. And then 3rd teamers will end the game.

                    • Well the game excites me because I haven't seen football in months, so getting a chance to see my favorite team play is riveting enough for me. I don't care too much about other teams unless I'm bored, but the football fix is the reason why I'll be glued to the screen.

                      Now when regular season starts, nobody else exists. There's just the game, my couch, the celebrations I'll do on that couch, and the refrigerator. lol

                        So true, which sucks, but it is what it is. It's really hard to gauge when that's the set-up, but there are a few guys deep on our team I want to see play that I'm hoping get some decent snaps. Football is football at this point, I'll probably watch the entire game lol.



                        I hope Jason Williams and Mike Hamlin get some extended snaps. I think Hamlin can really be a future starter at SS or FS for us, whether he pushes Ball this year or takes a starting job next year. Also Williams needs to really put things together and dominate vs the scrubs he'll be lining up against to get me excited.


                        He's not going to get a starting role this year anyway, but I do want to see alot of growth because he was one of my favorite prospects.

                        • Spencer went down with an achilles...so he probably wont play either. Butler, B Williams, and Johnson have all been lighting up camp, we should be seeing a lot of them on Sunday.

                          • Hate to see Spencer inured, but we should have plenty young horses to take his place in training camp.

                            • WOOOP!!!! Just got confirmation. I have a ticket to the cowboys-raiders preseason game. I will be paying special attention to the OLB, which is what I am most intersted in. Tell me who else I should be paying particular attention to. Give me some long shot names!!!! I will post info from the game afterwards. I usually try and watch individual players. If you have someone in mind, let me know.
