    I finally got to a place with electricity today. I had to get a dial-up account, but I'm back and ready for some Cowboy news!!!

    It's amazing how much I missed this place and the information provided here.

    Anyways, I'm really grateful to be alive and able to finally come here! It was a harrowing experience these last two weeks or so on the Mississippi coast.


    What happened to Burnett? How long will he be out?

    We got Peerless Price? Wow.

    Who impressed in the game the most? Clearly Bledsoe did well, but who else made plays of note?

    Any catch-up info will be greatly appreciated. Good to be back... even with dial-up :eek::

    I'll let others give you a recap, but I'm glad you made it out safely and are stable enough to have internet.

    Check the Members Zone. I think others were looking for you as well...

    Oh man it is great to see you here.

    We also acquired Scott Fujita from the Chiefs for a 6th in 06, and conditional 7th in 07.

    Burnett should be back this week or next. Minor clean up surgery.

    In the game Henry impressed me the most on D. Bledsoe was stellar on O. I wish I could say anyone was a standout on ST, but we won. Hell of a good game too.

    Oh man, you totally missed us winning the SB!

    Anthony Henry was a monster for us against SD as was Crayton. Petitti did a very good job at RT although he did have a couple of false starts but then so did the other OLs early in the game.

    Ware didn't do much nor did Spears or Canty.

    Bah, here's what I wrote up on the game:

    Glad to see you survived and made it to a safe place with access to the internet.

    Henry played good? great.

    I thought he'd be a good pickup. Did we get any sacks? I guess I can look it up now that I have Internet access... We haven't been getting any real newspapers down here since the storm.

    Crayton looked good? I gathered that Price wasn't active from another thread... Does it look like Crayton will still get playing time once Peerless is activated?

    Man, I can't believe I'm sitting here reading and typing on the Internet... I wondered if I ever would again...

    We are certainly glad to see you back and ok AsthmaField.

    We played a real fine football game Sunday. Overcame a very suspect 1st qt but prevailed coming from behind in the 4th.

    Run D did a good job on LT.....held him to 74yds, Secondary especially the corners excellent game....Henry is a stud. We pressured Brees all day not many sacks.

    The moved the ball well, JJ 94 yds, Bledsoe played an excellent game 146 QB rating.
    converted 3rd downs and scored 28 points. OL did a nice job of pass protecting Drew, run blocking ok but could be better.

    Our ST left alot to be desired.........We let Sproles chew up the yardage on kick returns allowing SD excellent field position. Something we need to fix asap.

    One positive I know you will be glad to hear is that our D kept them from scoring in the last 2 min of the game with an INT in the endzone by Glenn.

    It was a game not for those with a weak Great Season opening win.

    My game Balls:

    Two, should've had three. The pressure on the QB was okay. Tough to tell since San Diego only gave up 18 sacks last season. Got a sack in the 4th quarter which is a good sign and more importantly the defense didn't turn to mush in the 4th quarter.

    Looked great. Caught everything thrown his way. His first reception he had a lot of yards after the carry. Essentially, the Chargers were double teaming Witten and Crayton wound up getting his catches.

    Yes, Jerry and Parcells have repeatedly commented they don't want to take time away from Crayton. Plus, Price and Crayton play two different positions. It appears that Price is more or less an insurance policy and a guy to give Glenn and Keyshawn a breather. Also, I think they want to try some 4 WR sets, but they probably don't have enough confidence in the O-Line at this point to do so.

    Check out Calico's videos. He's got highlights of the game.

    Glad to hear you're okay

    It is nice to have you back, I am glad you made it through the storm. We here on the OBX of NC are getting ready for Opheila tonight. It was a great game on Sunday. The Cowboys looked really good except on kickoff coverage.

    Great to have you back, AF!

    Best thing about last week's game imo was the D not blowing it on the final SD drive.
