I've been a Cowboys fan since I lived in DFW in 90-91. I got a little disillusioned during the Terrell Owens era and then I ended up becoming more of a college fan the last ten years what with other distractions from the NFL and the fact that I lived in Oxford, MS when Ole Miss had the revival in football (and now track and field). However, we have recently moved to McKinney and I've jumped back on the wagon! We toured The Star on Monday and it was worth the time. The players an coaches were milling around here and there. I was out Saturday shopping and there were lots of fans from out of town buying up Cowboys stuff. Yes, lots of excitement. Frankly, I was afraid they would not be able to handle Seattle. The Rams have a weak run defense. I'm hoping Zeke and Dak can exploit that weakness and we can pull it off.
Wejo might be on something.
There will be as many Dallas fans in the stadium as fair weather Ram fans. There is no home field advantage on this one.
Without Chicago in the mix, all four games this weekend are tossups, IMHO
I'm 59 years old. I went to law school at 48 and started a second career and that's why I was in Oxford, MS. I have noticed through the years that I seem to be a pretty average guy when it comes to likes and dislikes etc. The Cowboys had malcontents for several years, or cancers as I refer to them. I kind of got off them when they continued to court and put up with those type players. I'm thinking a lot of excitement was lost even when they made playoff runs. I am not seeing any of those type players on the 'Boys right now. I am very familiar with Dak, being an Ole Miss fan, and I really like him as a person. In fact, most Ole Miss people liked Dak when he was at Miss. State even though the rivalry is pretty toxic these days. Having said all that, I have real questions on his passing ability as a pro QB. But, he has always been a big game player. They have to let him run some, though. That's his strength. Now that the season is short, maybe they will REALLY turn him loose... I'm listening to 105.3 in Dallas right now and they are giddy.
