    This was a good thread theme from earlier in the season. I'm bringing it back. Based on the Buy or Sell segment from PTI. Answer buy or sell then ask your own question. In the event 2 people answer the question, go with the first question asked.

    Buy or sell? Dallas can neutralize Larry Johnson this weekend?

    Buy. Unfortunately, in situations where they key in on one aspect of the offense, they sometimes let the other one go free (for instance - the Eagles game. We stopped the pass all day, but allowed the run).

    Buy or sell. The Cowboys can get to Trent Green against that monster line WHILE stopping Larry Johnson.

    Buy, they've done a good job on opponents run games lately (all season really). Even if he gets 100 yards, if they keep him out of the endzone I'd consider him neutralized.

    Buy or sell...Rob Petiti will start at RT next season.

    I'm buying. Defenses don't like looking weak too often. Last two weeks put them in the negative spotlight. I look for them to make a statement early.

    Buy. We have much bigger fish to fry on the OLine, and rookie linemen RARELY start well. Lineman take a few seasons to peak - it has one of the largest learning curves on the team in transition from college to pro. Petitti looks like a real good prospect, regardless of some slip ups. Torrin Tucker did less 2 years ago and still started last year.

    Buy or sell...we have a strong offensive focus in the offseason next year.

    I'm buying. The kid had potential and he is still "kid", even though he's a very large one.

    Am I supposed to make up a "Buy or sell" question when I post...I'm new to this.

    They allowed 14 points to Denver and 10 points to the Giants.

    How was our defense in a negative spotlight?

    This is a trade off!

    Dallas versus Larry Johnson. Dallas must defend well against the running game in general; featuring Larry Johnson. But that's just the beginning ...If Trent can connect with Hall, Gonzalez and Horn, it could be a long day.

    [IMG]
    Johnson makes the Chief's Offensive game multi-dimensional and keeps your defense honest.

    Danger, danger, danger ...Gonzalez and Johnson are the weapons to watch out for in this very interesting, very crucial game. I'm rooting for Dallas, because you're NFCE!

    Week 12 in Dallas:
    Broncos: 144 rush, 149 pass, 24 points


    Week 13 @ Giants:
    Giants: 127 rush, 150 pass, 17 points

    Even though our pass defense has been tight, we can't give Larry Johnson a 100 yard game. Most of the "experts" on ESPN thinks he's going to have a good game. I'm just saying we make a statement from the start of the game that he's not going to have a fun day.


    Buy or Sell: Can Terry Glenn have best game of the season this week?

    I'm buying. First year in 3-4 scheme is better than most nay-sayers thought. Now we have to do the same with O.

    Buy or Sell: Newman made primary punt returner for rest of the season and playoffs even if Crayton is healthy.

    Sell, I think Bledsoe has to take the Emphasis off T Glenn and spread it around and hit hot reads, because I think we will open up the offense this week based on BP's PC this week.

    Buy or Sell: One of our corners returns a pick for either a TD or a big play.

    55 yards came in overtime against Denver. Other than that, Dallas really slowed down the Denver running game. It wasn't 24 points, it was 17 because the Denver defense scored.

    The Giants averaged less than 4 yards a carry. The offense provided no help to the defense and put them in some bad field position. It wasn't 17 points, it was 10 because the Giants defense scored .

    I will take the Cowboys defensive effort from the last two weeks. The key to this game will be creating something on offense and having solid special teams. The coverage teams have to keep Hall from being an impact and they also need to have some big returns.

    I am buying the defense.

    Buy or sell? Dallas special teams.

    Sell, Kansas City rarely throws into the flat.

    Buy or sell, Julius goes over 100 yards for the first time this season?

    Sell, Glenn may have a great game against the Chiefs secondary. However that is only going to happen if the Chiefs are in position to win in the 3Q. The Chiefs secondary is not a feared bunch however they get more passes attempted on them than most teams in the league.

    Denver has the most.

    Sell, I think that the Cowboys will revert to the MBIII/JJ combo with 150 or so yards on the ground.

    Buy or sell ?

    The Drew Bledsoe will have a 60% completion percentage after this game ?

    Forgive me about the score. The defense didn't allow those two TDs, but they did give up over 100 yards on the ground. Regardless, if it came in OT or not, defenses pride themselves on not giving up a century mark. I "LOVE" our defense. I'm simply saying 1 OT, 2 OT, or 5 OT, they are not going to allow a 100 yard game this week.

    Buy or Sell: we score over 30 this week

    Buy.....JJ has got to concentrate on using his vision and instints rather and less on worrying about fumbling. That cradling the ball with two hands is great when you are about to be hit but it damn sure slows you down in the open(providing he can get into the open).

    Who will be the defensive star for the "boys"?

    Sell: While I think we contain LJ, The top by KC will be great enough to keep us from 30.

    Buy or Sell: Dallas has the best trio of Corners in the league when healthy BY FAR.
