How good is Dallas?

Postby Azrael » Mon Nov 17, 2003 5:46 pm

I wasn't sure where to post this. I actually have a 2 part question.

1. How good is Dallas? If you look them over, yeah, they are 7-3, but consider who they played. They have played 2 teams with winning records (Philly 7-3, NE 8-2). Teams they've beaten are a combined 28-42 and 2 of the 3 games they've lost they've been shut out. I think 2 things have really helped them to where they are at this point, the Tuna and the defense. The offense is flat out not very good.

2. I'm wondering if I should play Stephen Davis this week against them or Brian Westbrook against New Orleans. I realize that Carolina is no offensive powerhouse, that Dallas has the No. 1 pass defense and No. 2 rush defense in the league, and that they have only given up 100 yards to a runningback once this year. I'm worried this is going to be a 6-3 game run by the defenses and I'm going to get maybe 5pts from Davis. Meanwhile, Philly has been doing great and Westbrook recently turned in a career performance against the Jets. Would you "stick with your stud" or move to what looks to be a favorable matchup?

They are not that good, that why this league is as it is Parity, weak ass schedule. Grant it fat tuna is good coach, maybe best out there, but this team has been on the positive side of poor officiating and lucky bounces. If the Redskins ever figure out how to capitalize on turnovers cowpies would be 6-4 (spilt milk, i'm crying again)

I'm glad Dallas has started to slide a little, they were becoming way too overrated. I think the Eagles will end up winning that division. And yes, you should start Davis.

Stephen Davis will tear up Dallas. Dallas has linebackers about the same size as their punter. If you watched the Sunday night game, you would realize this team is very weak in the run defense department, if NE had a good RB it would have been a huge blowout.

Me living in Dallas and being a Dallas Fan, Im mad about how they have played. There offense is still sputtering like last year but their Run Defense is Solid as can be in the league. They have shut down Great Running Backs this year, and I think theirs only been 1 100 yard rusher against them. I predict Stephen Davis to get maybe 70 yards rushing Total.

You look in the league and you call Dallas Overated, but then you look at the league, especially the NFC, you see Minnasota sliding who are 6-4 and so are St Louis who almost lost to Da Bears yesterday, then you see Carolina at 8-2 leading the lead, then its Dallas and Philly at 7-3, Then the next closet teams are 5-5. So Who in the NFL is good? If the Bengals can be 5-5 and lead their devision, whos good?
