    Hey fellow fans and friends,

    I just checked into my hotel overlooking the Pacific Ocean after watching what was probably the best pro game I've ever seen.

    I haven't had a chance to read comments here yet, but thought I'd post what I saw from Qualcomm.

    First, man did Dallas represent. There were a ton of fans there! It was so much fun walking back to the car after the game exchanging high-fives with fellow Cowboys fans.

    Second... What a freakin playmaker Patrick Crayton is. Everytime he came on the field you could count on him to make a clutch play. That kid is special and is only getting better.

    Third, I'm so happy for Drew Bledsoe. I hope he continues doing what he did today because he was magificent. Here's to you Drew... I knew you'd be great!!! He had a great completion percentage... he hit every open reciever. The sacks he did take were coverage sacks and he was wise not to make a mistake with the ball in those cases. I'm not sure about the botched snap, I'll have to take another look at that when I get home... but man was Drew clutch.

    Fourth, even though that 4th and 14 conversion made my heart jump into my throat, it set up what was possibly the greatest ending of a game I can ever recall seeing. What heart by the Dallas Cowboys to hold them at first and goal.

    I'm so hoarse I can hardly talk. Sorry, I didn't get to take any pictures, but I had a great time. I can't wait for us to stomp the Skins asssses on MOnday night!

    Go Cowboys! The playoffs are within sight ;) and my prediction of Drew making the Pro Bowl is off to a great start!

    You were there?

    Now I'm even more pissed at the guys who backed out of going with me.

    Nice recap. Thanks.

    I have no doubt that your voice is toast about right now. LOL As for the fumble Aikman kind of put that one on Johnson for not getting the ball all the way up to Bledsoe. Wish I could have been at that game with you, heck of a game.

    Walking to the game, it looked like it was going to be 50/50 Dallas/SD fans. Where I was sitting, though, I was surrounded by Charger fans. Just a couple Cowboys fans in front of me, and a family of fans a couple of rows behind me.

    The SD fans were nice, but were talking a lot of trash throughout the game. Early on telling us we were going to get blown out. (looked that way in the first quarter, I gotta admit)... saying Drew was washed up and needed to retire (what you gotta say now?)... saying JJ couldn't run on them.

    The funniest thing was after they converted the fourth down at the end of the game, they all started chanting "LT LT LT LT" too bad Marty didn't listen to them, though. Three incompletions and a couple of hail mary's later, all us Cowboys fans were hugging each other and holding our heads in joyful disbelief.

    Dooms: Yes Troy did say that, but after seeing the replay, I disagree...

    It looked like the snap was fine but it just bounced back out of Drew's hands...

    To me it looked like he short snapped it and did not get it all the way up. Just my take. Regardless of who it was on they need to continue working on improving that.

    Glad you got to enjoy the game. We could see a lot of Cowboys fans in the seats on TV.

    Funny that you mention that, because on that last series I was just thinking to myself, I really hope that they don't give it to LT. :)

    the good:

    bledsoe...3 td's....awesome!
    crayton...he will be huge this year...been saying it all spring.
    henry....worth every penny.
    keyshawn - such a tough player.

    the bad:

    kick coverage
    j. jones inability to run in second half
    o-line breakdowns
    t-newman....still looks as lost as he did last season.

    overall, you gotta be psyched about this win. what a HUGE HUGE win.

    hats off to the defense. they got it done when it mattered most.

    Ive told anyone who would listen I would fly to any WC game this year. Im looking at the Seattle game. I had dibs on 4 seats at Quest field on the 35 yrd line 6 rows up from the Dallas bench for a buddy o mine on Ebay. I never could get anyone to commit.

    Im still interested. We would have a Schlobberknocker of a good time. :bow:

    Speaking of Danny White ... did anyone else have one or two flashbacks with #11 quarterbacking today?

    He made a couple of great runs right when we needed them most. I thought he did real good, keeping his feet going and making one or two, when he could have fallen for a loss. JJ did alright today. 93 yards is close enough!
