Cowboys could use a familiar face in Spencer

In order to have any shot at pulling off an upset win over the New Orleans Saints, Rod Marinelli's (no-so) famed "rushmen" need to show up early and often. If Drew Brees is allowed to sit back in the pocket and survey the landscape (Mo Claiborne's whereabouts), this game could look a lot like last season's French Quarter Massacre.  That's why I'm nominating Anthony Spencer as the...

5 Reasons The Dallas Cowboys Are A Complete Fraud

The game plan for the Dallas Cowboys is fairly simple – since the defense is still a sham, the offense must pick up the pieces.
