Some opening day thoughts at the start of the 2012 season...
1) "I am a Jedi, like my father before me." Yes, the Force runs strong in Eli's family. Eli can sense pass rushers that he cannot even see. He has mastery of his weapons, including Cruz and Nicks. Add Bradshaw, Wilson and a healthy TE, and Eli can be lethal.
2) "Fear is the path to the Dark Side." And the only fear this Giants blogger has is the Giants Offensive Line. These guys barely held it together in the playoffs vs San Fran. This year starts with Locklear at LT. He's serviceable, but he'll need help (chips, etc.) vs Ware et al in pass protection.
3) "Great kid, don't get cocky." We on this not so humble NY Giants blog have been concerned about the dearth at Linebacker for many a moon. This season brings optimism in Kiwi with a little more experience, Rivers with a fresh start in the swamp, and second year players like Herzlich and Williams getting some experien...
BEST OF MAXIM
The Dallas Cowboys open the season on Wednesday, September the 5th with an opportunity to make a statement against the defending Super Bowl champion New York Giants.
Amongst many analysts, the Cowboys are a popular choice to win the NFC East division, credited with a top-notch defensive unit and an offense capable of putting up big numbers. But this is not the first time the Cowboys...
For a while Wednesday night, Jerry Jones' offseason moves to improve the Cowboys were about to blow up in his face.
Jones focused on improving the cornerback position after watching his team blow fourth quarter leads five times last season. The Giants were the main beneficiaries of Dallas' fourth-quarter generosity last season, and it was the Giants who were the first test...
According to a report by Mike Florio of profootballtalk.com, the Cowboys have reportedly ruled out Jason Witten tonight the Giants, but he has been cleared to play in week two against the Seahawks.
Witten suffered a spleen laceration against in a preseason contest against the Raiders and has been limited in practice. Florio writes: “As the Cowboys continue guard the results of...
Dallas Cowboys tight end Jason Wittten will reportedly play tonight against the New York Giants.
Witten, who suffered a lacerated spleen Aug. 13 against the Raiders, has been cleared by doctors and is feeling good to play, but will wear protective gear. He was on the field during warmups catching passes from quarterback Tony Romo.
Romo will now have his favorite target on the...

This is great news for the Cowboys and quarterback Tony Romo, now he’ll have his favorite...
The first regular season NFL game gave football fans just about everything they wanted last night. Close game. Rivals. Just enough scoring.
And for fantasy owners, waiver wire fodder.
Kevin Ogletree, the Cowboys No. 3 wide receiver, went off last night against the Giants’ suspect secondary. Ogletree led the Cowboys in targets, catching eight passes for 114 yards and two touchdowns...
The chances of Jason Witten playing in tonight’s season opener against the Giants are slim.
But that hasn’t stopped Witten from doing everything in his power to somehow get on the field.
Witten did not make the trip with the team to New York because he is recovering from an injured spleen. Witten is officially listed as a game-time decision, but he badly wants to be activated...

I gotsta get paid!
Kevin Ogletree. Poor Miles Austin. Poor Dez Bryant. Kevin Ogletree made you look bad. Moreover, he made you an after-thought. The big names, with the big contracts, continue to get overshadowed by previously unknown 3rd receivers. Kevin Ogletree had...
Among the 90,413 in attendance for Saturday's Alabama-Michigan action at Dallas Cowboys Stadium (a stadium record for a college football game) was one of the top cornerbacks in the country for the class of 2014, local product Nick Watkins, who holds an offer from both the Tide and the Wolverines. He weighs in on the experience.
The wait is over.
Regular season football officially returns tonight as the Dallas Cowboys and New York Giants faceoff and begin to write the next chapter of their storied rivalry. Al
