    Good news for the Cowboys, Vikings runningback Onterio Smith will be suspended 4 games and miss the season opener... he is by FAR the best RB in the vikes backfield and now means that sally Micheal Bennett will get most of the carries. Bennett will be easy to contain and now the Cowboys will have a realistic shot to win this football game

    Are you serious? Bennett is clearly the best back in the Vikings' backfield. Mike Tice has already said that Bennett would get all the carries this season, even the ones on the goal line that Moe Williams stole.

    The only impact this announcement has is for fantasy football people, who can now rest assured that Bennett is a good #2 back. :)

    And for the record, Vegas has the Cowboys-Vikings game as basically a pick-em, the Vikings giving 3 because they're the home field. You're awful confident for a team that blew their playoff hopes by losing to a dreadful 4-12 team in the season finale last year. ;)

    Sounds to me like you're just trying to make excuses in advance for a Vikings loss.

    I agree that Onterrio is a better all around RB then Bennett, but it isn't "By far".


    And Bennett is their best "Big play" RB. He might not be great between the tackles, but if he gets some room he could take it all the way.

    This surprises you?? Minnyhaha fans lead the league in excuse-making, followed a close second by the blockheads from Philly.

    Controlling Moss is the only thing that matters...no one else on that team can beat us...if we could find a way to hold Moss to 1 td and only a couple big plays, we'd have a shot.

    I think some of you might have missed the sarcasm in MOSSISGOD's original post. I'm more worried about Moss than Bennett or Smith for that matter. He's blistered us repeatedly and he must be stopped!!!

    Moss has a personal reason to burn the cowboys.....he REALLY wanted to be a cowboy and he knew there was a cowboy rep in a hotel in his hometown so he thought he was going to be a cowboy.....every since then he has made it clear that he wants to burn the cowboys and brings his A-Game.

    I do not think he can be stopped one on one so we better hope that dixon or williams can do some good plays in coverage.

    I agree with the last part of your post, but we faced Minnesota in 2002 and Moss has been a nusiance to us since he came into the league. I'm sure Bill will have something up his sleeve for Randy...hopefully!!

    I'll admit that I wanted to draft Onterrio in the 4th last year, it was good value for him.

    4 game suspensions are nothing to sneeze at, that's a quarter of a season...

    Did the Cowboys have even one decent corner the last time they played Moss?

    Actually I went and checked, it was 2000...we lost 27-15 on Turkey Day

    like I said, not alot of these guys were here then, and Bill Parcells certainly wasnt either

    That is what we thought in the first game against an expansion teams first regular season game (texans) and what we thought when we were going to face a vickless atlanta falcons team in the first game of last season......we were wrong both times. :eek:

    This team isn't "led" by Quincy Carter anymore. It has some direction now. We aren't losing to Minnesota.

    Viking loss?

    Surely you jest.

    We true Dallas fans are confident that our D will shut down both Bennett and (T-New) will shut down Moss.

    I can see us beating them by as much as ten. Crown noise don't scare Vinny, and it sure as hell ain't gonna bother Roy and T-New.

    27-17 Dallas.
