    I never say "us" or "we" when referring to a team I am not an actual member of, but that's just me. I do notice; however, that the players never say "we" or "us" when referring to fans but they simply refer to us as the fans. I do say "us" when referring to football fans. Even if I were a lifetime season ticket holder and had scads of Cowboy merchandise, I would not refer to the team as "us" because I'm not on the team nor employed by the team. They won't let me in the clubhouse and they call it a club for a reason - members only.

    I don't have a problem with those who say "us", whatever gets you where you wanna go, I just don't feel I'm a part of the team, only an outside observer.

    Green was one dimensional. He could rush the passer well. He was terrible in coverage and didn't paly particularly strong aginst the run. He was a 3rd down LB.

    Understandable. I tend to refer to the Cowboys as WE because god knows I die on game days when we lose and celebrate when we win. Chances are many of us who have been fans for a long time know more about this franchise than some of our own current players.

    What's stupid is that Carpenter had a lot of success running down VY in that game. Carpenter was a monster in that game and looked every bit as good as AJ Hawk, if not better for that game. That was a defense that threw VY major fits and Carpenter was one of the main catalysts.

    I agree. I'm a big Longhorns fan and I was impressed by the OSU defense and the play of Carpenter. I'm very happy with the selection of Carpenter and think he will be a big part of the Cowboys D for many years.

    Question...How did you come up with your name "Rockytop6"?

    Seems kinda misleading being a Texas fan when "Rocky Top" is UT's as in Tennessee's song...Just wondering.
