        I was born in Atanta, moved to Orlando for a few years, then I went and lived in Austin and now I'm in NJ.

        This is where I got all my fav teams from, I've taken a little piece of every place I've lived except NJ because, we do not have sports teams.

        Thanks BoneKrusher^

          Yeah. Looks like you've been all over the place. I've lived here for quite a while. I've always liked Dallas sports. My grandfather lives near Dallas, and he taught me the right way when I was little. :) How is NJ, BTW? Nice place to live?

If we could mirror their defense and keep our offense rolling like it has, we should have a good shot.
            The Bills used a basic 4-3 Tampa 2 look the entire game. They played the pass heavily and hoped for the Colts to make mistakes, which rarely happens, but did twice in the form of fumbles (one of which was run back for a TD) against the Bills. So, to a point, I agree with the notion that if the Cowboys do what the Bills did, they'll have a good shot, but good luck trying to get another 2 turnovers out of a team that's turned the ball over all of 8 times in 9 games this season.

                Is Sanders playing, or is it a gametime decision?

                    Question. I noticed during the Cardinals game that the Cowboys came out in their nickel package alot more often than in weeks past, mainly because the Cards use a 3 WR set. It was used almost as much as their 3-4 base.

                    Do you think they'll use the nickel package as their base against the Colts since Indy is almost exclusively a 3 WR base? I think that would be dumb, you want to confuse the protection with the 3-4 mask, using that basic nickel against Indy is suicide. Any thoughts?
                    The cowboys are looking to use their penny defense where they stay in the base 3-4 but play only one saftey (Roy Williams) and bring in the nickel corner (Aaron Glenn).
                    I guess that means Roy will be used as a FS in this game? Thats risky. They have the CBs to do it, but I don't know if you wanna run 1 S against Peyton. I like the nickel 335 package, but I never seen Dallas run it yet. The penny is a hit or miss philosophy, it will be interesting to see if it works.
                    They've used this earlier in the season, I think it was against the Jaguars. It's not like they'll be using it the whole game either. Having 3 different nickel style defenses to throw at a team keeps you pretty flexible in what you can do.
                    The cowboys also ran it a lot against Arizona as a warm-up for this game.

                        That's big. Sanders is the best player on their defense.

                          Definitely, he's probably is there best playmaker and run-stopper from the outside. More good news for Marion and Julius.

                            Speaking of Marion and Julius, does anyone think we should start Barber over Jones? I'm more and more impressed every week with Barber.

                              No. It's not surprising that Barber has a better average when 70% of his runs come from draw plays on 3rd and long. Drew could get 5 ypc doing that all the time. He runs hard, but he also doesn't have to play against teams in the 1st/2nd quarter like Julius does. Marion is the guy that's going to get you a 1st down, Julius is the guy that's going to take it to the house.

                                While it's true that Jones is a home-run hitter, it's my belief that our offense doesn't need a home-run hitter at RB. None of BP's featured backs in the past have been home-run hitters, and Barber is more in the mold of those guys than anyone. I'm perfectly content to have a two-headed monster at this point rather than worrying about who the "starter" is. We have a great running game this year, and it's because both guys are contributing.
