Prevent D comes back to bite the Cowboy's in the ass.

 

Also, It's a Bucs life!

Wow, I'm usually the one to start the :censored: the Bucs talk. I'll just add to it this time. 

 

:censored: the Bucs with a rusty chainsaw. I HATE this team.

Don’t look now, but the Cowboys are playing some damn good football. We’re looking like last year’s team. 

 

Probably already too late to catch Philly, but if Philly stumbles at all, Dallas will be right there.

Great comeback by Carolina after starting down 0-10. All that said, I still can't figure out this Panthers team.

The Rams and Cowboys take care of business. A good football Sunday for me.

It was fun tricking people into thinking the Broncos were good for a couple weeks there. I fully expected it to all fall apart, but not to the tune of 50 GD points. 

 

I think my favorite thing about Brock Osweiler is how he's 6'8" yet seemingly can't see anything and also has way more balls batted down at the line than he should.

The Cowboys actually control their own destiny right now since they're 2 games back but play the Eagles twice.

 

It's certainly within reason that the Cowboys win in Dallas in two weeks, and given their relatively easy 2nd half schedule, it actually could come down to that last game on NYE.  

 

I wouldn't be concerned if the Eagles lost, but considering they still have the Rams (they're seriously good?) and Seattle (in Seattle) left to play, it would certainly be in their best interest to pull out all the stops to get the W in Dallas.

Nah, it’s more USC doesn’t want to have night games on a school night. That’s why the Rams don’t have any prime time home games. 

I thought the same but apparently there are no restrictions on Sunday night games. so unless the NFL is crazy or the one of these teams collapse this is gonna be the Sunday night game.

Wow, Redskins pulled a rabbit out of their ass today!

 

Fixed it for ya... lucky chumps.

 

A few notes on my end...

 

-What happened to AJ Green is, in my mind, a microcosm of how the Bengals have been this season: Falling apart when things get tough. Don't blame Ramsey though, the guy shut him down to the tune of 1 single catch for 6 yards. Pretty sure a nice hefty fine and a suspension is coming his way.

-Same for the guy from Tampa as well. In fact, the Bucs might as well start waiving the white flag... it's gone downhill that fast.

-As a Seahawk fan, I'm now afraid of the Rams... yes, they still have to go to Seattle in December. But, what happened today in the Meadowlands gives me reason for concern. Same for the Eagles, but the game with Philly doesn't hold as much weight in the grand scheme of things as the rematch with the Lambs does.

Washington's lucky because the Seahawks couldn't protect G-d's gift to football on a vital end-of-game drive? ;)

Sure... of course there's the missed field goals (BTW, if Walsh still has a job tomorrow morning consider me shocked), the usual penalty problems and the seemingly large elephant in the room: They can't run the damn ball! It would be nice for them to not have Russell throw for 350 yards in a game for once.

There was always this thing in Philly called the "curse of Billy Penn" - no team had won a championship since the first building was built that was taller than the William Penn statue on top of City Hall (phila doesn't have a ton of skyscrapers because for a century there was an unwritten rule forbidding buildings taller than that statue.)

 

In 2008, the Comcast Center became the new #1 tallest building in the city, and they put a little tiny William Penn statue on top of it so Penn was once again the highest thing.  The Phillies went on to win the WOrld Series.

 

IN 2014 they announced a new tallest building would be built (Comcast Technology Center), and that they'd eventually move the statue to its top just to keep Penn as the tallest thing and prevent a new curse.

 

Now in 2017, they're getting close to topping out the new building. Not sure what the time frame is for relocating the statue, but if the Eagles go far, I assume it'd be sooner rather than later.

Watching the Seahawks play can be an exercise in patience. For example, three missed field goals from the usually reliable Blair Walsh.

 

You just made every Viking fan reading this spit up his drink.

 

Screw that guy.

If that 12/10 Rams vs. Eagles game isn't flexed to Sunday Night, NFL is just dumb. 

I could also see the Week 12 Rams vs. Saints game being flexed up to Sunday Night (if Green Bay loses the next two). 

 

If these both were flexed up, both of the Steelers remaining Sunday nights would be flexed down, which I'm fine with. I'd much rather watch my team play at 1 or 4:25 and have a West Coast team play at 5:00 PST.

Thats awesome. I hope they do flex it. It’ll be to see the Rams playing in the Coliseum at night.

Is goff super good now? Wasn’t his thing that he sucked and didn’t even start last year?

 

It's amazing what a creative, relatable offensive coach can do for a QB compared to the garbage Jeff Fisher attempted to execute.

 

This Rams turnaround is on a few things. Fixing the offensive line, adding receiving weapons, and bringing on Sean McVay as head coach and running the offense. The defense was already strong and talented, but add Wade Phillips into the mix as coordinator and that stays quality.

 

The situation around Goff has improved. Goff has time to throw. He has weapons to throw to. He has a coach that knows how to put those weapons into places to succeeds, how to get Goff to get the ball to those successful positions. All of those in turn have made Goff better.
