    Giants are the only team I see on the schedule right now. Dallas will be 4-2 get back with you later on other games. LOL

    The Giants are the only ones there that are really worth a crap. 'Course thats just my opinion.

    6-2 is certainly possible...but I'll say 5-3.

    Giants will be no walk in the park. They've got great strength at the skill positions on offense with Shockey, Barber, Toomer and Burress. No elite stars amongst the bunch but all can be very good.

    Seattle is always tough at home and our run D will be tested with Shaun Alexander.

    Arizona should be a win but we have been playing down to the level of the competition so far.

    I think we should take 2 of 3 and go in at 5-3.

    Im going to say 6-2, the team looked hungry against the eagles and now i think the players and coaches see that with the eagles issues the Giants are the team stading in our way. We know with a victory over the Giants we have a good chance for a run at the division, a loss here makes that look less likely. I dont forsee and letdown this week, we are at home, and we have the talent to play with them. Team just needs to execute again, no sloppy play.

    After the giants i see us beating Seattle, they are hurting with some key injuries and Arizona cant run the ball at all, another one dimensional team, our defense should tee off on whoever they start at QB.

    I have to go with 5-3. I think 2 out of 3 is about right, dropping one to either the Giants or the 'Hawks explosive offenses.

    I can't pick this team to win 3 straight after they've been so inconsistent. They played like crap against the Raiders, and like legends against the Eagles. They held the Skins to nothing for 55 minutes and then blew the game in 2 minutes. I don't know what to think of this team. Too many young players to be consistent enough for 3 straight wins. I think Seattle will actually be the toughest opponent on that list based on the matchups. Giants are good but have no defense, and let's see Eli pass against our talented secondary. Seattle can run over our three man front that until Sunday was allowing 100+ yards running per game.

    We're still too inconsistent to win three in a row. If we pull it together and do it I'll be as happy as anyone though.

    Agree with most of you. Giants and Hawks, split with either one of them. Gints are terrbie off byes, 3-13 Like I posted before, so Ill say we win that, and lose to the Hawks.

    The Cards game would be tricky if it was @ Arizona. There WR's are un real. But zero running game.

    BTW who were the people that said Brian Westbrook was basically unstoppable?

    I'll go along with some of the others and blame inconsistency on a 5-3 record at the bye. If we beat the Giants then we will probably lose in Seattle.

    Hopefully, I am wrong and Parcells & Co. have figured out what we have and will continue to turn them loose like they did this week and we will not lose another game this year.

    Back in the early 90's Dallas beat the skins on Thanksgiving and to me that seem to be the turning point for the Cowboys where we went from an up and down team to a real contending team. I hope this past Philly game was the turning point for this group of Cowboys. We will just have to wait and see but I do think some where along the way this team will hit its stride and turn the corner as a true contender.

    I think there is a great chance Dallas will be 6-2. Giants are smoke and mirrors right now. Rams, Saints, Cardinals have been their opponents????? And all 3 at home?????? Plus, they have one of the worst defenses in the league right now........Of course the boys can't look past NYG but their record is misleading. As long as Dallas takes care of business this Sunday, 6-2 is in the near future.

    Bottom line, Eli and his gang will actually have to face a good team this weekend.

    If the Boys win this weekend, I think they have a good shot at 6-2.

    Seattle on the road is the one that worries me just a bit.

    If we win our next three, that means we would have won four games in a row. It seems a little early in the season for the "new" team to be that consistent, but I hope so.

    we already got in trouble doing this after the Charger game (remember all the "we'll be 4-0 before Philly!!" posts?)

    we followed up the Charger win with 3 clunkers...lets see how we follow up the Philly win before getting over confident

    If JJ's healthy and we beat the Giants, we'll have enough momentum to finish off the bye week 6-2. Then we'll have 2 weeks and 1 day to prepare for our Monday night beatdown of the beagles. Of course this is primarily dependent on BP not returning to his conservative gameplanning. If we play to win we'll be 6-2. If we play not to lose we'll be 4-4.
