    Once every four years I find myself very stressed this time of year.

    I can't talk to people who disagree with me and I can barely talk to people who *do* agree with me; I walk around like an exposed nerve.

    Thank God for NFL football this year. I am *so* much happier reading this website than I am reading CNN, Reuters, or whatever.

    Re: Let the Season Begin!

    I'm pumped that football is back!!!

    I'm a die hard Ravens fan, but I was born in Dallas...so the Cowboys are my 2nd team I try to always watch. I hope they can win.

    I will be flipping to the O's game when I can...but I'm football guy first.

    Re: Let the Season Begin!

    I just can't see how the Cowboys can win this game. Totally going out on a limb here, but I see the Giants winning, and winning big.

    Still hoping for a big day from Demarco Murray, Dez Bryant, and Sean Lee (all three in my fantasy starting team, in wickeds league)

    Got Tony Romo as my starting QB on a bunch of other fantasy teams too.

    Yeah I got Romo on mine as well. I have D. Murray to, but he is riding the bench since I have Forte and McCoy.

    can't wait for the game even though I'm stuck in a hotel. got some beer (don't ask what brand).

    I'll be surprised if Dallas hangs with them especially in NY

    Re: Let the Season Begin!

    Defenses really looked ahead of the offenses. At least that's how it was through most of the game before they wore down. I wonder if that will be a trend.

    I'm wondering if last year was just a mirage, because of the lock out. Towards the end of last season, defenses where starting to catch on and shut down other offenses. Maybe we'll start seeing more teams getting back to the run game a little more this year.

    Giant's offense really took a bit to get warmed up. Cruz had like 2 or 3 drops, which is very uncharacteristic of him. The Giant's secondary is a lot worse off than I thought they'd be. Romo really tore them a new one.

    Also, Eli played pretty well, if it wasn't for those drops, the Giants probably would have won that game. The Giants defense doesn't look anywhere near what it was in the play offs either, but hey, this is the Giants. Slow starters.

    Yup.

    I also thought they yanked David Wilson too soon. The fumble was a big error on his part and definitely needs to be addressed, but he has that homerun threat that Ahmad Bradshaw doesn't have. I think they should have kept Wilson in the game a bit more.

    Eli did have that one big miss that would have been the touchdown they needed late in the game. He had a wide open guy and just over threw the ball.

    I don't think so because many teams just can't run. They don't have fullbacks or tight ends who can block. They'll just throw quick short passes.

    I agree.

    Teams that can run, do...but most just don't operate that way. It also really depends on what kind of receivers and QB a team has.

    Re: Let the Season Begin!

    What about Demarcco Murray though? What a steal this guy is turning out to be for the Cowboys (and me). I was kind of reluctant taking him, because of his rookie year perhaps being nothing but a mirage, but he really looks like the real deal to me.
