    How will #Cowboys defend Calvin Johnson? Garrett: "That's a fantastic question. We'll have those discussions here in the next 12 hours."

    Jason Garrett on Dez Bryant being grabbed and held by CBs: "He's been dealing with that since he was in fourth-grade in Lufkin, Texas."

    Put Carr on him. Seriously. With the way Carr has been playing there's no reason not to.

    I wouldn't be surprised if it was a "let him get his yards" situation, and focus on REALLY shutting down the rest of the garbage the Lions are putting out there. Gutsy, but the right move, imo

    The real question should be how are the Lions going to defend all the weapons at Romo's disposal?

    As good as defense played against Eagles they are going to need even better against Detroit. Stafford can move around so Dallas cant just man up all over the place. Look for more of the tampa 2 in this game. I would make Reggie Bush and his chronic knees beat you in this game instead of Stafford playing catch with Johnson.

    I hate the over bloated comparison but he has actually reminded me of D. Revis the past two games.

    Scary good. :)

    As much as I love Carr, there simply is not a CB in the NFL that can "have his way" with Megatron.

    Put Stafford on his back each time he drops back to pass.

    Scandrick and a safety, double-teaming Calvin Johnson.

    Put Carr on the Lion's 2nd best WR, and Claiborne on their 3rd best WR.

    And, needless to say, great pass rush on Stafford.

    Ummm Nope. I have mad confidence in Carr's ability to neutralize Megatron.

    I think Dallas should at least start out that way. Carr has been playing at a high level, so I think you give him the chance. If Johnson proves to much for him to handle, then slide him to the second-best receiver and double Johnson for the rest of the game.
