Well, disappointment again, is it too much to ask that the Cowboys have a 3 game winning streak, is it too much to ask that we go more then one game above 500.  I guess so but in past years we have lost games because of our own stupid mistakes.  This year it just seems like we cant catch a break.  Romo goes 14/30 for 206 yards, not great numbers but he throws 3 TDs and no INTs.  In fact, the team as a whole had no turnovers, while the Lions had 4 turnover.  Interesting stat i saw during the game, only one team now two i guess, but two teams out of i believe it was 57 have won with a -4 turnover difference have won.  Not sure what the time period was on the stat but still pretty interesting.  They showed that before the Lions scored the game winning TD when it was in fact still just one team.  Now it’s two and the cowboys are back to being a 500 team.  i guess i shouldn’t complain too much tho, a lot of teams would love to be a 500 team.    



Voting for the NFL Pro Bowl has recently started and the NFL is trying something new with it this year, trying to spice it up a bit, make it more interesting.  Well first off they made new uniforms for each side and its not pretty.  Nike was tasked with coming up with new uniforms but instead we got what looks like Oregon Ducks knockoffs.  so as far as looks that’s the biggest difference but they have also overhauled the whole game.  Gone is NFC-AFC teams and there will now be team captains.  Leading the way is the great Jerry Rice and the ever eventful Deion Sanders who will pick teams by help of two NFL.com fantasy users.  That’s right, adding a bit of fantasy to the pro bowl might just be what it needs but the fact remain the same, its still a game where no one wants to get hurt so players end up running half speed.  There are other changes to the game that might make it more interesting but still, everyone is looking out for themselves so the game just comes off as boring and slow.  First off, there are no more kickoffs so that spot will be taken by a defensive back.  There will now be a two minute warning before each quarter and the ball will change hands after each quarter.  They might as well let each offence have the ball for the whole quarter.  I think the two minute warning is interesting but feels like they just watched a basketball game and thought, that might be cool.  One change i really like is that they are letting the defenses play defense, they will now be able to play cover two and press coverage meaning the defense can now change and hide what they are really playing.  All in all it might be just enough to save the pro bowl but in my opinion i still think the game will end up looking slow and lazy.       

Well, being my first post i guess i should say something about myself.  I am by no means a writer, i just feel like i should get that out of the way.  i hope that this ends up being somewhat interesting and readable.  I will go ahead and say that i am sorry for any words i spell wrong, i do have going for me the fact that when i do spell a word wrong i get the red line.  Enough about my shortcomings, more about me.  I LOVE FOOTBALL, i’m not a very confident person, as least not always but the one thing that i am most confident about is football.  I know my football, despite the fact that i am a Dallas Cowboys fan i know what i’m talking about.  This is what this blog is about, mostly, and not just football but sports in general.  We have baseball going on right now, well just barely. football is in full swing, and basketball is just getting started.  This should be fun and i should go ahead and say this, if your a hockey fan and somewhat interested in this, might want to turn around, i don’t do hockey.
