In all seriousness they were losing that game regardless of what they had on. They had no answer for the Eagles D.

You can't do squat on offense when your defense is giving up points on every opposing possession. Dallas is lucky that they forced a few field goals in the red zone; otherwise this would've been an even worse loss.

I did not see this coming. I really thought it would be something like a 37-30 Dallas win. I can't believe in this Eagles defense, especially after losing D Ryans, but the rest of the front seven isn't bad. 3 of the 4 d backs blow but Dallas couldn't exploit that.

despite Troy aikman's fellating of mark Sanchez, I dont think they can go anywhere significant with him calling the shots.

Remember when Kaepernicking was a thing? And all those No. 7 jerseys were flying off the shelves?

Yeah, now that he's getting paid a lot of money, he's really just not good enough. I guess his numbers aren't terrible, but whenever I see the 49ers play he's just terribly unimpressive and the offense always struggles. His reputation appears to be based on the occasional game where he plays out of his mind. I could be wrong, since I don't watch the team play every week.

I'd still rather have Alex Smith.

Who would've thought that the Chicago Bears actually had the best showing of the Turkey Day losers?

Also, I can't believe I am saying this, but I think Oakland has a real shot to beat the 49ers next Sunday.

I've been about the biggest Kaepernick fan around since day one. I've been rooting for him and going to his games since he was running all over everyone at Nevada and nobody else knew or cared who he was. I've spent countless hours defending his style of play/lifestyle/face/ect and getting upset when people wouldn't let up.

But to tell you the truth, I just can't do it any more. The guy is terrible. Once people adjusted to his feet, the truth about why Nevada was the only team to offer him a scholarship was completely exposed. He looks totally lost out there. He takes stupid sacks, overthrows just about every time he releases the ball, and makes some of the most boneheaded decisions I've ever seen an NFL quarterback make. Maybe if the Niners ever get a solid offensive line ahead of him, he might be able to turn it around, and I could be totally wrong and happy that I was. But I'm having a hard time seeing that right now.

I'd absolutely love to see Kaepernick be a long time super star, but I'm pretty much to the point where I just don't think he has the mind to really be a great NFL quarterback.

I'd still rather have him than Alex Smith, though. Anyone who thinks differently couldn't have actually seen him in the seven years he was with the Niners. That guy doesn't have the mind for it either.

I'm not the biggest rah rah SPORTS fan, but man it's nice to see Dallas get totally beat down like that and hear the Eagles fans in Jerrydome cheering and then go to their website and see that people are selling tickets for $30. I'll never understand the mistique surrounding that franchise that has such poor support and such a poor track record over the past 20 years. I genuinely despise every last little thing about that organization and while it's just SPORTS and not real life, it's still very satisfying to see them get worn out and humiliated on national TV in a game they were picked by most to win.

Ray Rice won his appeal and is eligible to play... not a joke.

That's ridiculous. But I doubt he really contributes for anyone. He was on his way down before this incident. Now, couple that with not being in football shape, he won't be much of a factor.

Don't worry. Nobody will want Rice, except for maybe Daniel Snyder who will keep overpaying elderly free agents.

This is going to stick with him throughout his entire career.

It's already become a trending internet meme.

He's already beat hitting-and-running a pedestrian and being the guy who brings his own liquor to bars; I think he'll beat this. He's Teflawn Marshawn.

Keep an eye out for the Bills in the off-season. Aside from being a fracking guy and also owning the NHL Sabers, their new owner Terry Pegula owns the talent management company who represents Rice. The NFL has yet to ask or tell him to sell/divest the company.

Also, while Bob Kraft has said he wouldn't, Belicheck loves to shop at the bargain bin and get "an open box special".

How many season ticket holders would the Bills be willing to lose if they sign Rice?

After Lenay Rice's story is out on ESPN and with Matt Lauer, it is clear that the Ginger Hammer aka Fidel Goodell lied.

You can commit a crime and admit to it, and still be accepted but liars are seen as worse. Goodell lied, the Rices didn't.

He was also punished twice for the same thing. You can't do that, even when it's politically incorrect to not do the hammer.

Don't get me wrong, rices actions were inexcusable but Goodell has an itchy trigger finger with punishments and it bit his butt this time.

i thnk you absolutely can adjust the punishment for a "crime" (remember - we're not talking about a criminal crime, but a violation of a relatively arbitrary NFL code of conduct) if new evidence comes out that shows that the offense that was punished was actually worse and would have received a worse punishment had the extent of it been known at the time of the original sentence. Of course that wasn't the case here, and it was proven that Goodell did know the extent of it at the time of the first sentence, so in this case the right decision was made.

I kinda wanted to believe the league on this one, but it's impossible to at this point. I think Rice has not only done the right things (or at least not the wrong things) since the incident, and due to the actions of the league and the Ravens, almost (almost) comes off as the victim himself, which makes him (in a very small way) likeable, and therefore signable.
