    We are in so much trouble, our D-line is completely decimated and we have Monte kiffen going up against Chip Kelly. This is the lock of the year, we lose this game.

    Yeah, but Dallas has a pretty high octane offense of its own. Wouldn't be surprised to see another game with total points over 90.

    Whether Vick is playing or Foles could prove to make the difference.

    It's not a good match-up for us, and we're short two pretty valuable players.

    I don't think we win this game, but wouldn't be shocked if we did.

    If we can't beat a bad Eagles team, there's no place for us in the playoffs anyway.

    It's Kiffin.....

    Why is it a lock? Chip doesn't have the talent he had at Oregon. He doesn't have the ability to control the tempo like he did in college. If you don't think Kiffin has had this game circled as a game he wants to win you're crazy. It would surprise me if he doesn't put a game plan together that doesn't beat that team. If anyone in this league is familiar with that offense it's Kiffin. Slow your roll hoss it isn't a lock the Cowboys lose. The only position they have us at is RB

    I don't think the Eagles are "good"...but their offense is something the rest of the NFC East isn't used to dealing with. Much like the Redskins last year.

    Perhaps the game against Denver and Peyton's no-huddle at least gives Dallas defense some familiarity with the tempo Kelly is going to try to set from the get go.

    Yea it depends on how we wlose. If we get a 20 point beating than i'd be worried. But there should be no shame in losing to a 3-3 team. They are as good as we are.

    Eagirls have a very potent offense and a GREAT running back and a scary threat at wideout in Desean.

    We have no defense, RG3 missed wide open players all day Sunday. This will be a loss, mark it down.

    If we had a real coach, we would run the no huddle offense all game.

    This game is a toss-up. Our offense has to keep up with LeSean McCoy and DeSean Jackson. Not sure who, as a Cowboys fan, I'd rather have at QB, Vick or Foles. Foles has looked pretty good so far.

    We will need to outscore them. Their defense is petty bad, much worse than ours. Worse then Denver's too. So Romo and company can put up big numbers. Hopefully they will. I believe they can.

    Glad you have no association with the team other than your ambiguous fandom. You think like a loser.

    They may have a tad bit of trouble stopping the Cowboys offense as well. Could be a shootout...perhaps with the D getting a game-changing turnover.

    There are no locks in the NFL. Every week we see something that defies what was 'supposed' to happen.

    It's not a great matchup for either team, really. This is the kind of game we should be winning if this team really has improved. We've got a massive advantage at the most important position on the field. If our offense takes care of the football, we can win this by either bending but not breaking defensively, or with a key turnover or two. Even if it were to devolve into a shootout, it's a game we should be able to hang with them in.

    I'm concerned about their hurry-up, and our lack of DLs to rotate. And it being a PHI home game. Other than that, I like how we match up with them pretty much across the board.

    At some point, this team needs to step up and take control of it's own destiny if it's ever going to under Jason Garrett. Last week, and this one, look like the perfect opportunity for that. I don't think we, as fans, should shy away from that reality. This is a division game against a relatively weak Eagle team with a questionmark at QB. If we can't win this one on the road, we're not heading in the direction we need to be heading. Just my opinion.

    If I wasn't a cowboys fan I would bet the farm on the Eagles, this is a lock. No way in hell we win this game.

    Really like who? Who was wide open? They had 3 sacks and 2 take aways and held them to under 17 points? Again tell me how that's bad defense? They shut down the redskins in the red zone as well. They are thin in the Dline that's it. We have solid LB and CB and young safeties that can only get better as the weeks go on. You are overreacting here

    You say this like either of the Eagles QBs are particularly good QBs. Average to bad QBs miss open players, its pretty much what defines them as average to bad QBs.

    I don't care if they are going up against the Red Army, I always think the Cowboys are going to win.

    Another key...ball control and time of possession.

    The Eagles hurry up becomes MUCH more effective when the opposing teams offense goes 3 and out and defenses get gassed/demoralized.

    That's how they beat the Skins, burying us in the first half then hanging on in the second.

    You need to watch the coach's tape, Hankerson and Jordan Reed were wide open. IN fact Jordan Reed wasn't even covered some plays; We will be exposed this week bad.
