    I want to know why Baltimore can be so damn physical in the secondary EVERY YEAR and get turnovers (and defensive TD's alot) like its nothing.

    They have some new guys step in every once in a while, but they always look like the exact same team. Punishing hitters and ball-hawks.

    So obviouslyy a new guy can step in and learn to play their style of D (the same style they've been playing for a decade). Why can't somebody turn our secondary into that????

    I wanna see somebody get knocked the F#*% out for trying to catch a ball on OUR HOME FIELD.....

    GET MEAN G@& D@#^ IT!!!!!!!!!!
    Did you ever consider that it's not the players?

    I am sure he was considering that. One of the reasons I am not high on Frazier is that his defenders do not attack well once the ball is in the air. Too often the defenders are playing off in space.

    The Vikings did cover better against the Giants. I hope that was not just a one game experiment.

    Re:Cowboys Coming To Minny

    With playoff wins drought over, Tony Romo & Dallas Cowboys get ready to battle Minnesota Vikings


    The win was 13 years in the making for Jerry Jones, and he was enjoying every moment. Inside a circle of reporters, the Cowboys' owner even encouraged others to join him in a chant.

    "The demons are gone!" Jones yelled.

    Note to Jerry: They're not gone...they just moved up to Minnesota.

    Re:Cowboys Coming To Minny

    last night on espn Merrill Hoge or whatever his name is and Trent diffler said the Vikes are not a Super Bowl quality team. I promptly shut those idiots off. Hopefully all this "they don't have a chance" meaning the Vikes will make then come out with some serious intensity. I will admitt to being nervous about this game but to all of you "fans" writing off your team already...take a hike. I believe the Vikings can beat anyone if they bring they're A game.

    Hello all,

    New to the forum. Cowboys fan, here. Not into trolling just came to check it out after it was mentioned in our forum (cowboyszone.com).

    I've read the entire thread and liked some of what I have seen. There's a lot of posters in here with a level head. Some that are a little too confident. Others that are cautiously optimistic. Yep, pretty much like every other board I've ever been on. :laugh:

    As far as the game is concerned: both teams are in for a fight. Anyone who thinks otherwise is either a blind homer or an idiot (I've seen both types in this thread).

    The one reason I think Dallas has the upper hand is that they are have been playing the best football in the entire NFL the past few weeks. They are executing in absolutely every phase of the game. While the Vikes just barely ended an embarrassing skid against a Giants team that was manhandled the week before in their own house by the Carolina Panthers. It's true the Giants seem to have have the Cowboys number for some reason. It's just how our division is. The Giants seem to own the Cowboys, the Eagles seem to own the Giants, the Cowboys own the Eagles, and everyone owns the Skins. :laugh:

    The one thing that the Vikes have that worries me is Jared Allen. It's hard to not like a guy like Allen. Great motor and he brings it on every play. Defensively, the other thing that worries me about the Vikings is...........absolutely nothing. I'm not saying that to be a troll. It's an honest assessment. I LOVE Winfield and I was so pissed that Jerry Jones didn't make a play for him when he was a FA. But, the fact of the matter is, he's been absolute toast since returning from his injury. Now, you may dismiss my claim and say "what would you know about the Vikings? You're a freakin Cowboys fan". Which would be true. However, I'm a Cowboys fan with NFL Sunday Ticket and a wife who bleeds Purple and Gold. Her Blair, Tarkenton, and Rashad autographs are some of her most prized possessions. She used to go watch the Vikes every weekend with her dad when they played at the Met Center. For you newbs and bandwagoners, that would be your prized Mall of America, now. With that being said, I have seen EVERY Minnesota Vikings game this year. And, honestly I don't think they match up well with the Cowboys (especially your offense against our defense). The Cowboys have allowed a grand total of 31 points in their last 4 games combined. Three of those games have been against two of the highest scoring teams in the league (Philly and New Orleans. They also held a San Diego team that had been averaging 28 pts a game to 20). In the mean time, the offense has racked up 72 points. Don't look at the Cowboys and think that because you beat the Giants and the Giants beat the Cowboys that this will be an easy game for the Vikings. This is a completely different Cowboys team than the one that lost in week 3 to the Giants and lost to them on the road in week 13.

    There are a couple of things in your favor, however. The first being that your are at home. The Metrodome can be a LOUD place. No doubt about it. Our O-line has a tendency to have pre-snap procedural penalties at the most inopportune times. If the Cowboys come in undisciplined in that regard it could get ugly. However, the Superdome can be equally as loud (if not louder) than the Metrodome. The Cowboys went in there and absolutely manhandled and offense that, to that point, NO ONE had been able to stop. The Cowboys created the blueprint for beating the Saints and every team since then has copied it and been successful with it. The Saints haven't won a game since. Noise COULD be a problem if the Cowboys allow it to be. The Cowboys have, though, proven that they can neutralize the home filed advanage of crowd noise. If Vikings fans are counting on the noise as the X factor they are sadly mistaken.

    As far as the Romo and Favre comparisons, they are valid. Favre is the wiley veteran and Romo is the "choker". However, as long as we are talking about chokers, Favre is surpassed only by McNabb in the playoff choke column. I know it's easy to like Favre and the success he has brought to the Vikings. But to ignore the fact that he has as much (if not more) of a tendency to actually throw the game away in the playoffs as he does to throw the game winning pass would be foolish. The only time Romo has ever REALLY choked in the playoffs was the snap bobble against Seattle. The loss to the Giants was a hell of a lot more the porous defense and horrible O-line play. If not for Romo, the Cowboys would have never even been IN that game. To be fair, Romo has had a tendency to do too much and he has had a history of making some "WTF" throws that lead to interceptions. Over the past few he's made very few of those decisions. In fact, the last two INTs that Romo has been credited for were on the WRs, not Romo.

    Before I go I gotta give some props top a couple of players on your team that I absolutely love. Harvin. Wow! what an awesome weapon to have. To think this kid is only a rookie is scary. Rice. Fantastic turnaround for this guy. Favre has made all the difference in the world when it comes to this kid's confidence. I've been watching Rice since he came into the league and he is a TOTALLY different WR than he has been for you guys. Allen. Nuff said. The dude's a beast. hard not to root for him (as long as he's not playing against your team). Shianco. Quickly becoming the TE threat that a West Cost offense needs. Last and certainly not least.....Jimmy Kleinsasser. I've always like that guy. He's always reminded me of Darrell "Moose" Johnston (even though they play different positions). He just packs his lunch pail and does a solid job every time he's on the field.

    Well, here's to a good game and no injuries for either team. Good Luck (but not too much good luck).
    Dallas has been on a nice streak as of late. The team seems to be at an all time confidence level (including their fan base). Media hack after media hack is annointing the Cowboys as the team to beat in the NFC.

    This will bode well for us. An overconfident Cowboys team that will get shell shocked when they start getting manhandled against a very talented Vikings team with a chip on their shoulder for respect.

    The dome is a magical place for this team and very much doubt they will let us down next Sunday. Peterson is getting way too overlooked, I'm sure you're familiar with this guy being from Dallas. He will show your boys what men can do with a football in his hands (hopefully he keeps it in his hands). Favre is more than a wiley old vet, he is a wiley old vet with a great arm that will not be overcome by the situation. Throw away your images of his multi interception playoff performances, the purple uni has transformed him (33 TD's 7 INT's).

    We have had our late season issues no doubt, I'm glad we got them out of the way. I'm very happy with this matchup, one of my favorite teams to see lose. I've been in Texas for 18 years now and never get tired of seeing the Cowboys lose (although I did join in on the SB partying on Greenville...hey I like a good party as much as the next guy). This year the partying will be for the Vikings.
    Trust me I don't count on streaks. The Vikings and Saints had nice one's going too. We all know how that turned out. The fact is the Cowboys are playing the most fundamentally sound football of anyone in the playoffs, right now. That is absolutely indisputable. Every other team has a GLARING weakness in their game. The Ravens can't pass, Jets don't have enough offensive firepower, the Chargers defense is suspect, the Colts have had to rely on 4th quarter comebacks, the Cardinals can't stop anyone, ditto for the Saints and Vikings (except the Giants). Dallas has absolutely NONE of these issues. They are the most complete team, playing the most complete football.

    You're right, the Vikings have a formidable weapon in Peterson. The problem is that the guy has recorded a grand total of 3 100+ yard rushing games this season. He also has a tendency to fumble the ball at the worst possible times.Two of 100+ yard games came against two of the poorest rush defenses in the league (Detroit and Cleveland). The Cowboys haven't allowed a single 100 yard rusher all year. That's against teams like Carolina (ranked 3rd in the league), New Orleans (6th in the league in rushing) and Kansas City (11th in the league). We also didn't lose a single one of those games (The Vikes rank 13th in case you're wondering). On the flip side the Cowboys are ranked 7th in rushing (offensively), while the Vikes rushing defense is ranked 2nd against the run. However, they only played 4 teams that were ranked in the top ten (rushing) and lost two of those games. Those aren't streaks bro, that's entire season averages. Like I said, guy, I've seen EVERY Vikings game this past season (for the past ten seasons, actually) and you won't tell me anything about the Vikings that I don't already know.

    In case you haven't paid attention, we have a home run hitter ourselves out of the backfield. Felix Jones is no joke and he absolutely destroys over-pursuing defenses (which the Vikes have tendency to do). They haul ass to the ball, no doubt. Greenway and Henderson are great players, but they do have a tendency to over-pursue.

    As far as the Vikings sneaking up on an "over-confident" Dallas team. You can save ALL of that. If anything, the Cowboys have been humble during this stretch. They haven't overlooked a single opponent over the past 5-6 weeks. They certainly aren't going to be over-confident in a game that they have to travel for. The Cowboys have been one of the best prepared teams over the last few weeks. This week will be no different.

    You're correct about another thing: Favre IS an old wiley vet. He can make plays in and out of the pocket, but one thing is sure: He's old. Dallas completely harrassed McNabb two games in a row. If not for McNabb's Houdini act the Cowboys would have had 6-7 sacks in that last game alone. Favre does not possess McNabb's size OR elusiveness. The thing about an old QB like that is if you hit him a few times early, they start to look at the rush, rather than look down-field (Warner has this tendency also). I've seen it happen to Favre, himself on a few occasions this season. That's one area that Romo has the advantage. He's not spooked by the rush like he used to be. In fact he's gotten so good at eluding tackles in the pocket and making plays that he would almost beg the Vikings to blitz him. The Eagles tried to blitz the hell out of the Cowboys in two of the three games they played and Romo torched them for it. If the Vikings can't get there with a 4 man rush while playing a Tampa Two (Or Cover Two if you choose) they are in for a VERY long day. Witten and Crayton (in the slot) feast on that defense with regularity.


    I just don't see a matchup between the two teams that Dallas doesn't have an advantage. We'll all see on Sunday, but I have little doubt that the Cowboys will win this (close) game.
    None

    Cowboys fans are equal (to me) to the Steelers fans. A bunch of bandwagon jumping jackasses leaped on board in the 70s when the "America's Team" myth was in full force.

    They'd all be Lions fans if they were the flavor of the decade back then. Or Bills fans.

    Not me. I hope it comes down to Tarvaris Jackson in the 4th quarter protecting a 24-point lead.

    Re:Cowboys Coming To Minny

    Sounds like we better just give up.
    Are the Vikings even in the playoffs? I haven't heard much about them.
    I wonder if the talking heads that were riding the Packers jocks are on board with the current greatest team.

    Talk is meaningless. Let's play the game, then we shall see.
