    Mens, highwaymen, diesel truck operators, cubicle dwellers and persons of interest:

    This being the week leading up to the Cowboyses first regular season game, it is as exciting as the week leading up to Christmas when we hope for sugar plums, deluxe trailer hitches and the latest in Moldovian menswear.

    But excitement is mixed with a tinge of fear. Yes, fear, Like fear of that family with chickens in the back yard moving in next door and lowering the property value of your ranch house.

    Let me esplain.

    For all the optimism here about how we have the secret sauce and we are loaded on offense, well I half to say: yeah, but what about the D?

    Yes, mens, what about the D.?

    Up front, in the trenches we will have part of the secret sauce in Jay Hatcher and that yahoo Hayden who sat out last year.
    Then there is the ailing Spencer, our franchise guy with visions of grandur who has had scant practice and expects to show up and play supreme ball. Yeah, just show up and let your skills shine, Spence. That always works. Just ask Tom Landry and Jimma Johnson.

    Realistically mens, here is what we are hingeing our hopes: Ware, Lee and Carter. And two of those are linebackers.
    Our secret sauce chef is asking us mens of the desert and sons of the Red Dirt culture to believe that we are Super Bowl contenders with the journeymens Hatcher and hayden and one good DE.

    But you will say, "Gimme, proud son of the North Texas flatlands and sharp Moldovian dresser, don't we have the secret sauce in Lee and Carter to contain the run"?

    No, we wont.

    You see, our fine linebackers will be busy heping out in the near flats agin Elie May's short passes.
    The Giants ground game will excel and then Ellie May will fire short passes to his TE to keep the linebackers backpedaling.
    He can do this all afternoon as long as he steps into the pocket and avoids Ware. By the 3rd quarter, he might have Ware winded.
    Carr and Claiborne will be kept busy with Mambo king Cruz, yes, but our safeties are primed to be outmanned. Often.

    In short: the Giants will score quickly and often.

    Romo will be quite a busy man on Sunday.

    But we will prevail 40-37.

    All this will be instructive to Jerra, the football guy and special sauce chef, who while understandably worried to distraction over our O line, has treated the D line as an afterthought. Yes. We half many Injuries to the defense. And yes, ever body has injuries. It's just that Jerra has been whistling polka tunes past the graveyard with our defense. He was hoping on Ratliff to give us a semblance of a serious D line but Rat has it in for Jerra and will be injured and counting his monies. And smirking.

    Meanwhile, Romo will be busy. Dealing with a porous O line, abandoning the ground game by the 3rd quarter and halfing to keep pitching them long passes to Dez. Just to keep up.

    If the Giants put up 37 with their offensive line problems and lack of running game then something went terribly wrong. I mean I know its a divisional game but I expect the score to be in the 20's.

    I think itll be a rough like 3 first games while the d figures itself out. I expect us to have to score a lot to win. Awesome for me I realized yesterday I wont even be watching the game sunday night. Lol have to try catch a rerun.

    Too cutesy although you've hit on several good points, i.e. porous offensive line and weak defensive line.

    As a Giants fan, I have to admit our problems. Didn't watch Dallas closely but from what I see, you have a better defense and an improved O Line. On the other hand, our OL is shaky and defense has sputtered at times in preseason.

    Sadly, I expect a loss for us. :(

    The chip off the old block, Stephen Jones, was talking about how the team has discovered a 'secret sauce' that will get the organization back to its winning ways. Reminded that PEDs have been deemed illegal by the league, Jones' appeared crestfallen and asked "All of them, even the little yellow ones?"

    For you, anything. Recently, Stephen Jones said that the franchise had a secret sauce in the team's makeup that could take it to the Super Bowl. I wrongly implied that Jerra said it.
    The secret sauce, I hope, will not turn into something sour and inedible, thanks to our defense. And I hope the secret sauce is not from Jerra's liqer cabinet.

    But let me be clear. I am a fan of the defense. The pretty boys can sling the ball and run to daylight but gimme a defensive battle on a Sunday afternoon and I am happa. But this defense has to many holes, too many injuries and too many MIAs. Doesn't look good to me. If Kiffie succeeds it will be the most amazing defensive work in years. I just think our defense will make Romo a very busy passing guy this year. And that aint good.

    Wha???
    Those Jones boys...
    At least he didn't say "Even the little blue diamond shaped ones?"

    By the by: what ARE the little yellow ones, anyways?

    I mean, I like secret sauces and I have the happy knowledge that nobody will be testing my bladder (which is unconstitutional) or any other part of my body at any point in the near future, thank you.

    Nonsense, your storytelling skills are second to none. You make secret sauce seem so mysterious.

    I can just picture Stephen Jones and Brian Cranston mixing and sweating over a dingy bathtub with no airconditioning, or swamp cooler- whatever, as we type- just a rusty metal shelf fan running on a window sill listening to the theme song of
    The Dukes of Hazzard on a loop.

    Good Times!

    I think it could actually be the opposite. The defense starts off well but starts to fall off once teams have a few games worth of tape on it.
