    We should prepare for every team like its a playoff game.

    We are not good enough to take any team for granted.

    Can't wait to see Suh and Waters battle it out. Which will happen first, Suh spearing Romo or Waters snapping Suh's tibia on a grab and fall? Lee vs. Bush will be fun too. Carr is the underdog vs. Megatron but as long as Kiffin continues playing man, he's got a fighter's chance.

    We don't have an Ansah for Fairley or Suh.

    I suspect we shall see a quick throw gameplan. If the protection holds up, they can't cover is on the backend.

    We're not good enough to not be worried about any team we face. The offense isn't consistent in sustaining drives and scoring, and the defense hasn't been consistent in keeping opponents under 20 points (although the changes made to the secondary the last two weeks, with more man coverage, give me hope).

    The answer is Brian Waters. Let the two first-year players double the other guy.

    That is a great way to look at it.

    Did you see the NFL Short Cuts of the Det-Cin game?

    Stafford is not going to miss receivers like Foles did.

    I would prepare for Detroit the same way Dallas prepared for Philadelphia.

    He must be missing someone he's at 61% comp. for the season and has been under 60% 3 times this season. Please stop overhyping Stafford. He's better than Foles but he isn't some top 5 qb.

    The Cowboys usually play to the level of their opponent. This is not a good thing when facing teams that are less talented. It creates a lot of close games which can go either way.

    I'm more worried about Reggie Bush than Megatron - if that is at all possible. Megatron will get his.

    Side note: Marinelli knows Detroit really well from his days with the Bears. I'm sure he'll have our Rushmen ready.

    He's got 15 TDs and 4 Interceptions so far -- pretty darn good stats. He's closer to Rivers than Foles in terms of the level of QB he is.

    I'm not saying he's bad, I'm just saying he isn't a supremely accurate qb. He throws a lot and misses lot.

    Have you seen Rivers this season? He was red hot against the Cowboys - but has had a few subpar games.

    Stafford is the same way. If he gets hot, the Cowboys are in for a tough day.

    Stafford was not stellar against Cincinnati, but I will go out on a limb and say that the Bengals' defensive line is much better than Dallas'.

    Dallas needs to bring their "A" game to Detroit.

    I'm worried about pretty much every single remaining game on the Cowboys' schedule, except the Vikings and Raiders.

    yes.....fairley, suh, ansah and......can't remember the other d.end........their LB's are average and their DB's are below avg. IF we can get good pass pro, Tony and Co. can feast for 30ish.....which will be the minimum needed to beat them IMO...
