    Takeaways! Takeaways! And more takeaways!

    Monte Kiffin and Rod Marinelli coached it, the players listened, and look, in the season opener, there were more gifts given by the generous New York Giants offense than the Cowboys would normally get in a month!

    Is all that glitters really gold? Are the Cowboys now the Chicago and Tampa teams that made this scheme famous for its punishment and its constant theft of the ball? And if all you have to do is emphasize it, what were all those other coaches doing around here? 6 takeaways left Eli Manning shaking his head, Tom Coughlin cussing up a storm, and it greatly assisted the Cowboys finally beating the rivals from New York in the new stadium in their 5th attempt, 36-31.

    For one night, no one is goofing about the Kiffin hire and the potential impacts that could be felt in this tight NFC East. If the Cowboys can go from their mark last season of 16 takeaways and move it up to the league average of 25, then doesn't it stand to reason that would be the difference in winning the division after coming up a game short (or a Dez finger-tip short) in 2012?
