No, most certainly not. But the leaves are changing, the weather is getting a bit chillier, and the Cowboys are winning, which can only mean that their inevitable collapse into mediocrity and missing out on the playoffs in the last two weeks of the season is right on schedule. Or is it? GOOD QUESTION BRAH. The 4-1 Cowboys have been led by both Romo (1260 YDS, 9 TD) and DeMarco Murray (130 CAR, 670 YDS, 5 TD), but are facing a still dominant Seattle defense in what is the highlight game today. One of the most interesting battles should be between Dez Bryant and Richard Sherman, if only because we all know Sherman ranks Bryant last in his wide receiver rankings. Sure, all receivers rank last in his rankings, but at least they aren’t in the sorriest category like Michael Crabtree is. (Can confirm, Crabtree is pretty bad.) There are a lot of things going against the Cowboys here: facing the number one ranked defense, at home, and they haven’t won five straight since 2007. Fate seems to be a pretty big factor, as I’m not certain that natural law allows for such a win for “America’s” team. That being said, if they do somehow pull it off, we’ll be forced to actually think the Cowboys are a good football team. I’m not sure I’m ready for that. I’m not sure any of us are.

      @Dom B: Bad matchup for the Bills probably, but I don’t fully trust the Texans defense. It’s J.J. Watt and nothing else right now.

    Should I trade Eddie lacy now that his backup James starks scored more pts?

      @Dom B: I’m still holding. I’m not sure you’ll get any value back here.

    can you always go with cute animal pictures like you did this morning. It really helped soothe me. My crappy teams are giving me an ulcer

      @J-FOH: I should, but then I would just start doing posts with just those pics, no other content whatsoever.

        @Jay: you can use pictures instead of words to describe the players.

    jesus, i’m about to go 0-3 in my money leagues. in one i’ll still be 3rd or even 2nd best team, but 3-3. with that murray TD, i now can blame myself for this loss, i played ivory/patterson (return yards, but probably still a bench now)/wright over j.jones (OAK)/royal/stacy. had i just played j.jones over wright i still win, with a score so awful i wouldn’t have deserved to.
    1. is k.wright injured? (damn i’m mad at myself for not playing stacy/royal/j.jones over him, even last week he had to get lucky to have value, not that many targets)
    2. is garcon injured (this one is now 3 weeks of awful, and seemingly being replaced by roberts)
    3. if i have CIN and they’ve now scored 5 total pts in 2 weeks and allowed 37 pts at home to the awful offense of CAR, and i have these as streamers IND/TEN/NYJ/GB/PIT should i just move on. In this league’s scoring system CIN is now 23rd overall (they did have a bye). before i owned them they averaged 16.33 pts a game, 2.5 in my roster. at least ARI still looks good, even with losing half their D. IND averages 14.5 pts in this league, even after 2 horrible weeks to start the year.

      @Montezuma’s Revenge… right now: is some good news, being 3-3 i might be able to get Reed from waivers, will probably only be 5th or so from bottom.

    • Montezuma's Revenge... right now says:

      @Montezuma’s Revenge… right now: in that 3-3 league, i’ll lose by 5.25, so really putting in probably any of stacy/j.jones/royal would’ve made me win.

      @Montezuma’s Revenge… right now: 1. I think he’s just hit or miss… more miss. I’m slowly souring on him, but it’s probably too slow of a process right now.

      2. Didn’t look like it. Roberts is getting some looks because he’s usually not the focus from defenses. Cousins isn’t very good either.

      3. Yeah, I think they’ve allowed like 80 points in the last few games. Go ahead and move on.

    in one of those leagues, drop taliaferro (now behind pierce,seemingly) for one of pierce/rainey/starks (in case of lacy injury, and that dude runs like he’s gonna get about 4 concussions a game)/riddick?
