Dallas Cowboys (3-5) at Philadelphia Eagles (3-5)
Last week, I enjoyed a relatively successful week. I hit 4 of my 6 big plays and went 9-5 overall, but it could have been a lot better. I hit my first 4 big plays and if I had hit my last 2, I would have enjoyed my best week ever, rather than just a strong week. I also was undefeated straight up until the Giants lost to the Steelers and I was actually thinking that maybe I could go undefeated 14-0 straight up, in which case I would have been kicking myself for not parlaying all the money lines and making a serious chunk of change. Instead I finished 11-3 and I was kicking myself for another reason.
I lost my last 2 plays, Dallas +4 and Philadelphia +3. The first one was the most agonizing as the Cowboys outplayed the Falcons and had a strong chance to cover blown by Orlando Scandrick making a series of boneheaded moves. The 2nd one didn’t feel good either. The Eagles weren’t nearly as close as the Cowboys were to covering, but the ga...

RETURN OF CHUCKY?
The speculation out of Philadelphia is if Andy Reid is relieved of his head coaching duties for the reeling Eagles at season's end, Jon Gruden possibly could be his replacement.
The Misery Bowl kicks off at 3:15 cst, and by the end of the game either the Cowboys or Eagles fan bases will be put out of their misery – the loser will be planning ahead for 2013. Its been a torturous season for Cowboys Nation, and by most accounts this game is the end-all be-all for the season. This game is up for grabs. I would have liked to think the Cowboys will win this...
Former Dallas Cowboys coach Jimmy Johnson says Cowboys owner Jerry Jones takes way to much credit as being the general manager during the team's Super Bowl years in the 1990s.
"That is completely a bunch of crock," said Johnson on the Dan Patrick Show Wednesday. "Jerry started putting all those titles on himself after I left. He didn't call himself general...
The Dallas Cowboys promoted cornerback Vincent Agnew and cut linebacker Gary Guyton in preparation for Sunday's game against the Philadelphia Eagles, according to the team's website. The moves were made Saturday because of cornerback Mike Jenkins' back injury. Agnew was called up from the practice squad to replace him. To make room, the team parted with Guyton. Jenkins...
The Eagles are not playing to their talent level this season. Some of it can be attributed to injuries but I put most on the playcalling and decisions by the coaching staff. The Eagles offensive line is devastated, could any QB and RB make plays for this team?
I'm sitting at 84-49 heading into the weekend. I need to have a huge run to get over .750 for the...
The season that once looked so promising for the Dallas Cowboys is halfway done.
After losses in four of their last five games, the Cowboys have plenty work to do just to have another .500 season. As for any chance of making the playoffs, that already seems like a big stretch since only one NFC team has won fewer games than Dallas (3-5) at this point.
Cowboys executive vice president...
Contrary to what everyone was saying at the beginning of the season, this is not the Cowboys year to win the Super Bowl. After a massive win against the New York Giants in the first week of the season, the Cowboys took a quick fall and have lost four of their last five games. While their defense has stayed relatively consistent throughout the year, their offense needs to get on track...
Dallas Cowboys great Roger Staubach believes owner Jerry Jones needs to delegate his role as general manager.
“Jerry is trying real hard,” Staubach told ESPN Radio’s Mike & Mike on Friday.. “He goes back to the old days when they won three Super Bowls. I think the formula is he’s got to find a medium ground and delegate more authority.”
Jones already made it clear...
One of the problems with the Cowboys is that they are like alcoholic who continuously denies they have a problem, so they can never get the proper help.
Take these comments from Jerry Jones’ son Stephen Jones for example via the Cowboys Corner.
Is Jason Garrett coaching for his future?
“I won’t even comment on that. Period. That’s ridiculous,” Jones said.

Prior to Monday night's debacle in New Orleans, the Eagles were listed as -2.5 point favorites over the visiting Dallas Cowboys (3-5) for this Sunday...but now the Vegas money is pouring in for the Cowboys, making the Birds a 1-point underdog in their own house.
In a game which features two teams struggling to score points on offense, and two quarterbacks who...
