I am expecting a large Cowboys turnout on Sunday, and the Cowboys fans that live in the Carolinas can smell the blood in the water here. If you want any sort of visual of what I'm talking about, look up footage of the Niners game in Charlotte last year. I am expecting that, but worse.

My company has given all of our seats away to Cowboys fans, because Panthers fans aren't interested. I am hearing the same thing from buddies of mine that work at other major companies throughout the Queen City. Lifelong PSL owners that I know that do not sell have sold their tickets to this game to recoup the ridiculous costs of tickets and to spite and embarrass the owner. I've already received several invites to "White Jersey Takeover" parties at venues around the UNC Charlotte area. The Cowboys fans are already gathering and will be throughout the week. I also know of at least 3 chartered planes full of Cowboys fans landing in the area by Friday.

The temperature of this Carolina fanbase is at an all time low. At least when they were awful in the early 00s, they were able to draft guys like Julius Peppers, Kris Jenkins, Steve Smith, and Dan Morgan. The current regime has completely mortgaged their future, and they can't even field a competitive team. They have no hope, nothing to look forward to - and they know it. The fact that CJ Stroud is playing so well only twists the knife deeper.

Their best player is in concussion protocol. He might be available Sunday. Their second best player is on season-ending IR. Their most effective offensive weapon is 33 year old Adam Thielen, and they can't block for their small, turnover-prone rookie QB. Fans are clamoring for the Panthers to start Andy Dalton on Sunday, to save their young QB from a beating. Their HC, a complete no-talent success story, has already had play calling duties taken from him in his first season. There is tension everywhere. They just lost to an awful Bears team in primetime. The GM could be fired literally at any time. It's bad here. Sports radio has nothing to say. And fans don't wanna hear it anyway.

I would never, ever guarantee a win. In truth, the Panthers do always play us competitively. I was at the game here in 2018, and the game in Arlington in 2021. They put up a fight and their defense is scrappy. The Cowboys also lose a ton of games that they're supposed to win. I am merely suggesting that if the Cowboys come out like they did this past Sunday, play their game, continue to execute high-level offense, and play defense - that this one can be over by the third quarter too. I am sure the Panthers will play clips of Thanksgiving 2015 on the big screen, and the handful of Panthers fans in attendance will point and laugh. But I'll be in section 138, raising hell, and living in 2023. Hoping to have the "Let's go Cowboys" chants going early and often.

GO COWBOYS!
I need tickets!

Hiring Frank Reich was an awful move. Kellen would have actually been better IMO. At least he would be a fresh new HC
As a HC, yes.

Reich is another in a long line who is a high quality OC, but that does not follow that he's a good HC. It's a completely different job.

I expect a repeat of last Sundays game. It should be over by halftime and Rush hour starts at the beginning of the 4th.

Start all the Cowboys you can again this week in fantasy football. :laugh:
It won’t be as bad as last Sunday. The Panthers have played several close games. If we decide not to show up it could end up a ballgame. We could have shut the Giants out again last week but once we let up that’s when they got their points. The Cowboys can look like a completely different team when they’re not focused and ready to play. It’s not going be easy getting up for the Panthers especially after coming off such a lopsided win last week. If the team feels like all they have to do is show up to the stadium to win the game it could end up being a much more difficult game than everyone is predicting.

Was in Charlotte last September, surprised at how small the stadium was and that you could literally drive up to the front entrance.

So let me get this straight. We’re gonna call every game before the next grade opponent, a trap game in hopes that you’re gonna get it right if you just keep saying it every week. Lmao. That’s like playing craps and putting 1$ bets on every number. SMH
Your sarcasm meter needs adjusted. :oops:

It depends on which Cowboys team shows up.
If the same entitled bunch that showed up in AZ does, then this will be a loss.
You cant mail it in, in the NFL.
If we show up and are motavated to play, then it should be a blow out.
tell me get this straight

missing 3 pro bowl offensive lineman and trayvon diggs plus flags dropping on us and one picked up on MG was entitlement or just situation created itself?...it happens to just about every team once a year.. ask the bills and chiefs plus others. All lost to bad teams.. all self entitled or that just sports...

ill take my answer. It happens. If it happened again, sure lets talk about it.

WhoEVER in the world thinks it's a good idea to spend a #1 overall pick on a sub 6' QB... DESERVES TO BE SHELLACKED!!!

No way in the world I'm taking Bryce Young over CJ Stroud after watching the pro days and thinking about throwing passes over the heads of NFL linemen. NO WAY!!!

I'm just so curious if you've ever been right about anything? I mean, when you predict a dud every week, eventually you'll get one, but that doesn't really count.
On Tyron: "Even if he’s out there, he’s going to look really bad."
On the last game: "Giants will lead at the half....Tommy DeVito will be a household name by Monday morning."
On the Eagles game: "Eagles win by at least 16 points."

Whatever you think you're doing, it's not being a realist. Maybe you can get Reality to change your name to Joe Troll.

I like Bryce Young, but I fear for his safety.
He is a very small quarterback.
Our defensive dogs will be ready to hunt ... and eat!
If Bryce Young were 4inches taller and read defenses a second faster...yeah.

But he ain't. Like you said...very small. I would have traded back and got a nice draft haul. Look at this year's QB: Drake May, Michael Pennix, Caleb Williams...heck even Shadeur Sanders. Not Bryce Young...

I don't care if he makes the Pro Bowl next year. The Baker Mayfields, Kyler Murrays...even Jaylon Hurts....it's only a matter of time before they find out what Dak did: The pocket is your friend so operate from there on most downs. If not, the league will start breaking you down - bone by bone, bit by bit.
