    Yeah I think Jaylon will get there, but he just looks so slow out there.

    Woods needs to start at SS. I’ve seen enough of Jeff Heath.

    Lewis looks like an excellent pick.

    Just gonna have to pray Lee stays healthy and these young guys start to mature.

    Fortunately our offense is young too so we have a little time. I still think I'd look to move Dez this offseason to free up some room to go out and get a couple impact players on the other side of the ball. We're paying Dez top 5 receiver money and not only is he not a top 5 receiver, Dak likes throwing to Beasley better.

    The Cowboys anytime Aaron Rodgers is near.

    You win games in the trenches........ This team is under performing right now..... OLine..... seems to me they miss Leary at G. When you look back, every time they tried to replace Leary, either by injury or an attempt to move on, the line begins to struggle....... Right now this team is struggling up front for what is suppose to be a top 3 line in the league.

    Dline is the Dline..... a bunch of quite not good enoughs to be consistent with pressure...... maybe 1 or 2 keepers ...... Lawrence finally has blossomed so that is a bright side......

    LB..... struggle if Lee is not there ......... Jaylen is not quite back, it won't be until next year IMO that he will truly be closest to his old form post injury ...... This year is a bout learning, trusting that the knee is good and showing flashes of what's to come from time to time.......

    Secondary..... banged up comes to mine ....... hard to perform at this position when the Dline is not getting pressure late in games ....... Brown is under performing somewhat, Lewis looks like he's going to be a fighter out there....he's going to be the best corner from this year's Cowboys draft selections ......

    After saying all that, I think a WC is still well within range ....... 2 changes up front on the Oline this year....chemistry will get better......too much talent not to get a bit more consistent than they are right now ...... they need to get Elliot going somehow so that they can get back to controlling the clock ..... they don't have enough depth defensively to over come the offense not dominating the clock ........

    Cowboys dominate the 49ers 40-10.

    Great win. Yeah I know SF sucks, but they’d been competitive in most of their losses until today.

    Dallas dominated them from start to finish.

    They got back to running the football. Zeke had an incredible game. Looked like Zeke of last year.

    Dak didn’t need to do nearly as much as he has had too this season and that’s a good thing.

    Defense was able to pin their ears back on the rookie QB and was all over him.

    Very encouraging sign. This team can still make some noise if they keep playing like they did today.

    I agree with all that. But our upcoming schedule is pretty brutal. Those two blown losses to the Rams and Packers are going to come back to bite us in the butt. We should be 5-1. The sucky part about it all? Id Zeke would have taken the suspension, it's be over right now and we'd still probably be 3-3. Now we have this looming hammer. Watch. We somehow go 4-0 in our next 4 games against the Skins, Chiefs, Falcons and Eagles, then Zeke finally gets suspended for the last 6 games for the home stretch.

    I don’t know about brutal, but some of those teams have come down to Earth.

    Falcons are a mess.

    Eagles look good, but just lost Hicks & Peters for the year.

    Skins lost like four O-Linemen and Allen for the year.

    Chiefs are having defensive issues much like the Cowboys.

    I don’t expect us to win all four, but if they play the right they did the other day I think 3-1 is doable.

    3-1 would put us solidly in playoff contention. We still have some tough games after that though including the Eagles and Skins again, as well as Seattle and Oakland and a suddenly competent Chargers team. I really just chose the next four games because I was trying to envision how sucky it would be to lose Zeke for the last 6 games. That was how the math worked out.

    No one in the NFL is running away with it this season. I actually like our chances at a Superbowl better this season than last season if we can get in. There isn't that dominant team that makes me worried...now that our achilles heel is out for the season (Rodgers).

    Bottom line for Dallas is being able to sustain the way they played the other day in SF the rest of the season.

    Obviously they won’t be facing a winless team every week, but they have to dominate on the ground consistently.

    Their defense obviously isn’t good, but with the way they have the ability to score points and wear teams down with Ezekiel Elliott that’s how they’re gonna win games.

    Ugly win, but a win is a win. Redskins always play the Cowboys tough and they did a good job getting after Cousins and they continue to dominate on the ground.

    4-3 now and in prime position to go on a run in the second half of the season.

    Zeke’s suspension re-instated. Six game suspension starts this week vs Kansas City. Eligible to return for Week 15 matchup @ Oakland.

    Huge loss. Have to go 3-3 at worst to stay in the hunt when he returns.

    Cowboys looked dominant today.

    Held a really explosive Kansas City offense to just 17 points and that was with the ridiculous play at the end of the first half.

    I know Wentz & Goff are getting a lot of the hype and praise and it’s not unjustified at all. They’re terrific, but Dak Prescott deserves some too.

    Some of the plays he makes unscripted are incredible and even though he doesn’t have the flashiest numbers he just makes the right play. He spreads the ball around. Hits the open man. Doesn’t make mistakes. Just such a composed young quarterback.

    Great win for the Cowboys. They needed this one because in all likelihood Zeke is still getting suspended.

    ...just stopping by and saying thanks for beating the Chiefs. They will still win the AFC West but this Raider fan will take what he can get.

    Cowboys just got destroyed in Atlanta. Chaz Green had one of the worst performances I've ever seen from an LT and for some reason Linehan and co. refused to give him any help. Dak was a sitting duck in the pocket. He never had a chance. Defense is just a joke without Sean Lee. He's a great player, but he's so injury prone.

    Goes without saying they need Tyron Smith back in the worst way. Otherwise they've got no shot against Philly next week.
