at the Cowboys' 4th Q. It's great to have you back, Tony.

When is he ever not laughing? At least in the old days, Cowboys fans could feel a bit of release by seeing the coach and players pissed off at such ridiculous mistakes.


Unfortunately, it looks like 2010 all over again. Cowboys can't capitalize on 1st and 10 and get penalties when it matters the most.

According to ESPN's fancy new QB Rating, Mcnabb was better than Mark Sanchez yesterday.

I guess you get bonus pts in that system for throwing the ball at your receiver's feet.

Jets back to winning games they have no business winning. I don't know how they do it, but they have a lucky charm up their @rse.

Cowboys gifted them that game - Romo gifted I mean

But hey, don't let this stop the Romo bashing!
I saw him talking to Bryant afterwards, and Collinsworth was saying that Dez had to give him something to work with, but I don't see how that int wasn't on Romo, unless he was just blindly throwing to Dez. It didn't seem like a quick throw. Revis was clearly between Romo and Dez when the ball was thrown, and there was coverage behind Dez.

My fantasy opponent had Dez and Romo and after the first quarter I thought I was done, so I'm not that sad about the outcome, but Romo will bounce back. If Dez can avoid getting hurt in punt returns, he's going to be incredible... I can't believe they stuck Revis on him so quickly, and even when he was gimpy!

Even if Bryant ran the wrong route, you can't be throwing that quick sideline turn to your gimpy WR who just happens to be marked by the best cover DB in the league and is also getting help over the top. That throw has to be checked off as doomed before the snap.

because they knew Romo would be stupid enough to throw to a hurt Dez.

Jackson has a strained quad and is probably out for the week. Bradford will be fine. Ronald Bartell has a neck injury and might be out for the year. They are thin at cb. This probably means greenlight all the NYG WR for fantasy.

Also not mentioned here: Eric Berry out for the year with an ACL tear. This might be a long season for the Chiefs.

Tolbert will apparently also play this week. But what I really want to know is what's up with Arian Foster (preferably from someone other than Arian himself).

Re: 2011 NFL Regular Season Thread -- Week 1

i don't think i've ever seen an NFL QB have this much time to throw on EVERY play. Miami's D sucks ass.

And Solder is embarrassing whoever is across from him.

Nice to see Pats getting it done in the red zone, that's been a problem the last couple of years.

Also great to see the TE production last year and tonight, after watching Graham and Watson frustrate for years.

8 different receivers with catches - now that's how you spread the ball around.
