    Been watching the Cowboys since 1968, if there's one constant about this team it's that they've lost to teams they should have beaten 48-0 on multiple occasions.

    Think Dallas will win, the offense is so stacked now, and the defense doesn't seem to have a lot of trouble with mobile quarterbacks, they've beaten the Seahawks, for instance, a couple of times and Wilson is certainly mobile.

    But wouldn't be at all surprised for Bridgewater to have a career game against Dallas, even if he loses....

    Yes teams nearly always put out optimistic forecasts initially, don't want the fans to give up on the team.

    But there's all types of ligament "damage", I tore my biceps tendon off the bone, except for about 10% of it, was told by the doctor it would be a 6-9 month recovery, and he was right on, though that's a lot bigger tendon. Could be a partial tear for Brees and small ligaments heal quicker, but I would agree 6 weeks seems short.

    Though Brees will get far more therapy far more often than regular folk, that will speed healing....

    Don’t wish injury on anybody. But I’ll take it. I had this as a loss

    Did you forget about Eli Apple? The single handed reason we beat them last year. The guys is our best player since he was with the Giants and now we’re fortunate enough to play against him on a non divisional foe. He’s the Erek Flowers of corner backs.

    After watching NO play Houston I figured we would beat them rather easily, granted it, it will be a tougher test than we’ve faced but they’re over rated. I haven’t given my score prediction but considering the new information I’m going say we win 27-17 and that’s conservative. You heard it hear first!

    Big injury for a QB. Especially one that is 40 years old. If he has to alter his grip moving forward, we may seen the last of Drew Brees or at least how we know him.

    Yep, but they'll settle that out.

    He's out for the year, so I think he's going to just retire. The Steelers look ready for a rebuild.

    Saw that. Didn’t look good. He’s out 6 weeks, so they say.

    Hurts the Saints but they should remain in contention. Schedule is pretty light

    @ Seattle
    Tampa Bay
    @ Jacksonville
    @ Chicago

    They should be able to go 3-3 at worst there

    Too late for you to jump on the bandwagon and pretend you didn't spend the last 3 seasons besmirching our franchise QB.

    Sarcasm or not.
