Wouldn't mind seeing Philly get their shit kicked in.

Romo is announcing, he's been a really good listen.

Tony Romo is awful as an announcer. I just donít get the rave reviews

arcarsenal : 10/12/2017 10:37 pm : link
My only issue with Romo is he's too excitable and sounds a little silly at times - but I like his analysis and think he's pretty good. I think he provides some solid insight. This is his first year doing this - as long as the networks don't try to dumb him down, I think he'll do well going forward.
You guys put way too much thought into

He has to get the ball in space to be effective. Definitely think he was over drafted -- especially when better backs were taken rounds later.

Cam Newton is obviously hurt. He couldnít move or get his arm into anything downfield after that leep to the goaline earlier in the quarter. He couldnít even run to the LOS on the 9 yard reception. The announcers totally missed it

Hard to tell. Cam has a history - only slightly less drama queen than Big Ben. And it's not bad gamesmanship to play things up to fool an opponent anyway.

He threw a few out pass darts after that 'injury' on the final two drives. And he threw a 50 yard bomb try to mccaffrey two plays after milking his shoulder.

So I wouldn't say the announcers missed anything.

The fifty yard bomb was four yards out of bounds. Not one through was accurate after the leap to the pylon, maybe he isnít hurt. But it sure looked like it to me and it surely was something to mention as a cause for what was mind numbing my bad accuracy. He is not a very accurate thrower, he isnít that bad. Also, he didnít run up to the line after the nine yard completion and he never left the pocket after that play. It should definitely be a mention.
He threw a dart to mccaffrey for a td  
MetsAreBack : 10/13/2017 12:31 am : link
The very play after the pylon 'injury' when they could have walked it in with Stewart.

He wasn't accurate all night - eagles got pressure and per romo his receivers probably deserved some blame for bad reads


But ... he's had a shoulder injury all preseason so maybe he exacerbated it. Lucky for him he has 10 days to rest up for the next one.

Carolina needed the extra 'home cooking' the Cowboys get, when they use their celling cam. Sure is convenient in getting those spots.

3rd and 1 at midfield, less than 2 minutes to go, and they throw it twice. Just run the ball, you can get 1 yard, especially if you just let Cam run it.

with L. Blount in the backfield. Tough grinder.

And only for $1.25 million!
Blount being..  
FatMan in Charlotte : 10/13/2017 8:03 am : link
on this team and we'd still be 0-5.

Not sure how one back makes us a different team, especially since Blount is about as inconsistent a back there is in the league.
He's better than any RB on this roster  
ThreePoints : 10/13/2017 8:17 am : link
And a better 1 than Perkins. Him and Perkins would have been a good mix.

Part of me point is he's an upgrade. And for only $1.25 million? It was worth the risk.

He actually wouldn't be very good in this offense. Not because he wouldn't be a good back and could be really good for the team but because McAdoo seems to get guys who do certain things well and then not use them that way or the things they do well don't matchup up to our style. With our Oline Blount would go nowhere. With our penchant for shotgun snaps and slow draws, Blount would be wasted. The fact that we have TE's and (had) a FB and then didn't use them to lead the way for a running attack says a guy like Blount would have been the Square Peg Round hole scenario...

Of all the shortcomings and things to be upset about with this year's team... Blount not being on the roster - wut?

So true...plus as someone mentioned above, how long did it take them to line up and get the next play called on second and 1???

The idea of the hurry up is to conserve time - they used literally over 20 seconds to get the play called - but also get the other team out of position a bit and on their heels.

Securing the first down there was vital. Then you can spike it if you want.

Totally agree. While he has speed, he's not making his own yards via broken tackles. RB's have to do that.
