    You can always count on Cris Collinsworth and Al Michaels to call games as they see them. Collinsworth has a little more distance from the Cowboys than the analysts who worked their last two games – Daryl Johnston, who was an integral part of the Cowboys running game in the “glory days”, and Troy Aikman, who got the “pressure relief” from Emmitt Smith that allowed him to throw the ball. Collinsworth and Michaels will be calling Sunday’s Cowboys-Falcons game for NBC.

    I thought Collinsworth, whose caustic commentary makes him one of the least favorite broadcasters among coaches and players around the league, would be harsher on the phone in talking Cowboys, who have had their share of problematic moments in clawing to their 3-4 start.

    Turned out, Collinsworth, whose calling card is “if I see it, I’ll say it” barely had a discouraging word after dissecting game film.

    Wonder if Cris catches as much flack for saying Carter can be great as I did last week?

    Probably not.

    Alot of people here dont like Collinsworth but I do. At least he doesnt spend 3 1/2 hours blowing smoke like a certain color guy.

    I'm going to write Collinsworth and give him hell about his premature praise for Carter. Not that I disagree, just to keep him in check.

    Why does this link require me to download Google Chrome or some such?

    Am I the only one that it does this too?

    Is there another link to this thing?

    Why on earth is there this rush to crown people when it comes to guys that play for Dallas? He has started 7 games for pete's sakes!

    How many players have we heard this about the last 15 years?

    .500 record over the last 15 years speaks MUCH louder than mediots crowning players and putting them in the HOF before there careers are over.

    And people wonder WHY everyone other than Dallas fans hate the Cowboys.

    NONE of these guys are as good as some make them out to be...if they were....we would win more often...and that goes from Jerry, to the coaches and the players.

    Could we be looking at a Willis bowman kinda duo..uh oh. What will the Jerry haters say. I do agree Carter is looking like what we were hoping he would be.

    The only time people seem to have a problem talking about the past is when it's the more recent past.

    I'm hopeful on Carter. He certainly hasn't done anything that tells me he can't be a really good player.

    WG I had the same issue, so it's not something on your end.

    Are you referring to the fluff piece you wrote where you claimed everyone would excel because Sean Lee was injured?

    I really don't think it's a reach to say Carter will be a good player. He was a highly rated player in the draft, and he's got a lot of potential.

    About Collingsworth, I've never had an issue with him. Always liked him, as a matter of fact. He's critical at times, but that's needed and welcome. Much better than guys like Gruden who talk up every player like they're headed to the Hall of Fame.

    Bruce Carter and Brandon Carr are playing really well for the Cowboys.

    Really like how the defense is coming together. If they can just find a bit more pass rush at times they could by scary good.

    On a fun note. Carter is also REALLY fun to user in Madden with his 88 speed at MLB you can really fly all over the field. I love Lee but sorry dude Carter gets the nod in my 4-3. :)
