Cowboys take the lead in the NFC East. Matt Barkley's debut could have gone better. Three picks.
I didn't think he looked that bad. Sure, the picks, but it was a lot of gunslinging with that playcalling. He had a few nice throwns.

But then of course, I'm always nervous Cowboys will find a way to lose, no matter the advantage. I was never nervous in the fourth quarter, yesterday.
Barkley responded pretty poorly when pressured by the pass rush. Nice to see the Cowboys actually try and stick with a running game for once as well.

Brandon Carr is starting to really earn his paycheck too. Shutting down Pierre Garcon and Desean Jackson in consecutive weeks was huge. He'll have Megatron next week though.

Well, our season is over.

Re: NFL Discussion - 2013 Season

Five players got knocked out for the remainder of the season yesterday:

Reggie Wayne
Doug Martin
Brian Cushing
Jermichael Finley
Sam Bradford

Cutler might join that list too. An NBC Chicago reporter snapped a phone pic of him in the trainer's area and it looked like his groin injury was a lot more serious than he was letting on when he walked off the field.

Oh, and Brandon Merriweather is a douche who needs to be fired before he paralyzes someone on the field by launching his helmet at theirs. Again.

The Texans are out of it for this season, there is no hope for them. But I am used to failure. I was an Oilers fan before I was a Texans fan. Crappy mismanaged teams are a Houston staple in pro sports.

Yeah, I definitely don't remember winning two world championships in the NBA when I lived in Houston in the mid-90's.

Cutler officially out for at least four weeks, which means the Bears' season is over.

Not to mention Briggs being out 4-6 weeks. The defense was pretty confused even with him in the game.

As far as the QB situation, they did score a lot of points after Cutler went down.

The Bears might have been able to weather Cutler being out with Trestman apparently being the QB Whisperer but there's no way that's happening with the defense in shambles this year.

Re: NFL Discussion - 2013 Season

I am no fan of Rex Ryan at all but he basically earned his team a win by tipping off the refs about that asinine rule prior to the game. I won't get into the rule because it's pretty crazy in and of itself but when you call attention to a possible infraction before the opening kickoff you know the refs have to call it because they know you will be watching for it closely. A little gamesmenship to be sure but it paid off in a crucial juncture. You see something crazy every sunday in the NFl.

Re: NFL Discussion - 2013 Season

I'm pretty sure that means we get your second round pick next year. Good to see Smith found a groove out there. Maybe getting the boot from SF was exactly the kick in the pants he needed to pull it together.

Because of Devin Hester turning on god mode for a return and Matt Forte being lights-out (and even Forte would have had 15 rushes for 41 yards if you take away his one monster rush). McCown's play was basically Kyle Orton -- good enough to get through a game but not enough to win it on his own, and that was against a defense that was asleep at the wheel and gave up 300 yards in the second half.

I do not see good things happening this season.

Smith has a decent completion percentage, but 7 TDs against 4 INT, and a 79.3 passer rating. That's not exactly a "groove" -- it's mediocre. In fact, it matches his career stats almost precisely (lifetime passer rating: 79.2). The Chiefs are 26th in the league in overall passing yards; they're winning because Jamaal Charles has been very good and the rushing defense has been obscene. Alex Smith is by no means the reason Kansas City is undefeated.

The Bears are hurting, but on the plus side, they do get to play the Vikings one more time. There's a team that has really lost it.

I'm a huge Patriots fan but hey they committed a penalty, the Jets were on top of it called them out, and had new life.

I f you don't understand a rule, call the league to clarify.
