  1. This feels like shades of 2013 for the Cowboys.
     

    Elite QB, with an elite offense, elite skill players, marred by a porous defense, poor special teams and poor coaching. 
     

    Luckily the NFC East is the worst division in football, the Cowboys can win the division at 7-9/8-8 lmao.

    Which calls? Curious how much your silver-green glasses are coloring them.


    *Seafoam green glasses. 😎
     

    I honestly don’t even remember the drive anymore, but one kept the Hawks on the field on a 3rd down after Lewis sacked Russ and the other was the PI against Carr in the end zone. 
     

    They were just bad calls, but not egregious or game-changing. 


  3. Watching the Cowboys-Hawks game and without the fans, you can really hear how loud and obnoxious the PA/music is at NFL games. Aside from drunk fans, it’s my least favorite aspect of attending games in person. 
     

    Also it’s hilarious to me that the Seahawks amazing home field advantage is neutralized without the “12th man” so the refs decided to help out with some HORRENDOUS calls on that last Seattle touchdown drive.

     

    PS: I fully expect the Cowboys to lose this game because the Seahawks are a better football team. This is just my one “NFL refs suck” venting post.

    At least now the white uniform has more cohesiveness than previous years.
     

    However, I still don’t understand how Dallas can have two of the best uniforms in the NFL-

    Yet, they think THIS is the best option and would probably wear them for all 16 games if they could-

    I dunno, I still really like the traditional white uniforms the best despite it containing elements that would make me dislike a uniform on an another team (mainly the awful pants color and mismatched blues).

     

    But that honestly could just be because I’m so used to it (they’ve essentially had the same home uniform since before I was born) and a personal bias due to the Cowboys being my favorite team. 
     

    Personally, the double-star is my least favorite. I wish they would drop navy from their color scheme and use the dark royal that oldschool has been advocating for instead. I really dislike navy, which is probably another reason why I love the standard whites. That royal blue is really vibrant in comparison.

    Am I seeing things or did the Cowboys change the shade of their pants?

    Today-

    They did actually. A Cowboys staff member confirmed it today. They went back to the shade of pants they last used in 2012. 


  6. After watching that game today, I can confidently state that I hate the Falcons uniforms even more than I did originally upon release. 
     

    The number font with the lateral shadow is just awful. Flat out horrendous. The font is terrible AND the shadowing too. Pick a struggle Atlanta. The font would look better with a solid outline or the shadow would look better with a more traditional number font, but not with both. I still dislike the ATL on the uniform but it’s not as bad in action. However, the chrome facemask (which I originally really liked) just looks out of place on this set. Black facemasks would work far better. 
     

    The only way this set would be redeemable would be if they wore their white pants with their black jerseys and refused to go all-black monochrome. The black/white/black combo is visually appealing despite the atrocious numbers and word mark. We haven’t seen the all-white combo or white jersey/black pants yet, but they’ll both look better than all-black. 
     

    And incredibly the black monochrome isn’t even the worse set they’ll wear this season owing to that red gradient monstrosity has that yet to be worn.


  7. The Broncos need an update to their uniforms, but having said that, they’re wearing their best uniform right now. Much better than the orange* jersey. 
     

    *-The Broncos belong in orange, but not with this set. 


  8. What a poop OPI call. Can’t believe they called that. Shame that decided the game, but the Cowboys shouldn’t have allowed a bad call by the officials to determine the game. 
     

    Cowboys would have won had they been more aggressive. First down runs should not be a thing for Dallas. Not coincidentally, every drive that started with a run ended with a punt. Ugh.

    Yeah this team is already one of the dumbest in the league and there are so many new pieces that have been just slapped together (and with guys like Fournette, hastily) with zero off season really to speak of. Nobody can expect them to be as together as New Orleans is right now. 
     

    It’s just nice to have a team down going into the fourth quarter and having pieces that you know have experience with this and won’t throw you completely out of half of your games. I see some flashes there that have me excited, and that’s all I’m really looking for with them. It’s been so goddamn embarrassing to watch this team over the last ten seasons. Just having some hope is nice! 


    Agreed with this. There is definitely something here talent wise. I think once the rust wears off and they get use to each other, the Bucs will be a dangerous team going forward. They should be a playoff team. 


  10. Bucs have been highly overhyped coming into the season, BUT they are playing their first game together, with no OTA’s, mini-camp or preseason. To expect no sloppiness, or growing pains, from them to begin the season was unrealistic. 
     

    Also can we mention briefly that Seattle finally let Russ cook and now the NFC might be in trouble because of it? The only thing holding Seattle back for years now was their strange reluctance to let their best player ball out and instead run it 40 times a game.

    Eagles offensive line is made of spaghetti. Now they’re about to let the Washington football team actually win a home opener. 


    To be fair, WTF’s front four is ridiculous. They were already one of the leagues best last season and now they added Chase Young? God help us all lmao.
