    How many expected Dallas to be favored over Denver? That's pretty impressive, lets hope they live up to the national opinion.

    Shut up this has got to be a joke.

    Denver sliced up the Jets really bad yesterday. Then again, the Jets couldn't stop a crawling baby. Mike Anderson looked phenomenal. We'll be hard pressed to stop him on Thursday.

    Let's not take out 7-3 too highly ... we could easily be 5-5 right now. We had some improbably wins (and losses) so things even out. But Denver will test our metal.

    If we play like we did the past two weeks, Denver will steam roll us.

    Then comes the big clash with the Giants in the Meadowlands.

    Part of the reason were favored is clearly Thanksgiving. The short week favors the home team that has no travel.

    The home team is usually given a 3 point home field advantage pad, so really Denver is favored slightly.

    We haven't played well the past few Thanksgivings. I don't know our record over the past 10 years, but I bet we're on the downside of .500.

    We could easily by 9-1, too. ;)

    Well it is 3 points for home field, and since we are 7-3 and Denver is 8-2 and we are at home, I don't feel that we should be an underdog at home to a team with 1 more win.

    Wile you point out we could be easily 5-5 right now I would like to also point out we could just as easily be 9-1 so you can bend number any way you wish to view them but only the bending both ways do you see both sides of the equation.

    Just how good our beloved Cowboys are is a bit speculative at best, but I sure am enjoying this year compared with many previous years since our last trip to the big dance. Not to mentioned how much they have changed just in the last year. They have changed enough to give us hope this year as well as the next few. There is excitement about all our young guys as well as our FA pick-ups this year.

    Personally, I think this game will be Dallas big. Many here (like the general public) like Denver and I expect the line to flip to Denver -2 by gametime. If you are putting action on Dallas, wait until kickoff. Denver dollars will flow early. But this game sets up huge for Dallas.

    Dallas by AT LEAST a TD.

    We could easily be 10-0. We are what we are. A 7-3 team.

    Yes, we are what we are, Bill Parcells.

    But let's see on Thursday HOW good or bad we are. The 2003 10-6 wasn't near a true 10-6 team.

    We have two potential HUGE losses coming across the horizon against the Broncos and Giants. If we finish 7-5, our division title hopes are just about over ...

    12-4 wins the division. We don't have any room to move.

    The 2003 team played an extremely weak schedule. I don't think you can make that same point with this team.
