    Well, at least we can reasonably say we got 4 out of 5. Let's go Rams, make it 5 out of 6!

    You mean the Steelers aren't the Crawfords anymore?

    Prescott handed the ball to the center instead of the ref. That's a mistake - much like McNabb not knowing a game could end in a tie. Not knowing the rules to a game you play for your livelihood is boneheaded.

    The whole play was screwed up, Prescott talked about going over these late game scenarios but the Dallas linemen didn't give the umpire room to get by them either and Prescott forgot about the umpire needing to set the ball as he was in the process of spiking it when the umpire pulled it out of his hands.

    Jones has fired coaches for less than this, McCarthy could be hitting the bricks after this but Jones claimed McCarthy deserves another chance, but time and time again Dallas has come up a cropper in the playoffs under Prescott led teams.

    Prescott seems to be a tiger in the regular season and a paper tiger in the playoffs.

    Happy MLK Day!

    Or not ;)
    I remember when I listened to Dukes ”My Awakening” (a book that was an awakening for me as well) about MLK. The picture being presented of MLK by the media and schools is pretty far from what appears to be the reality…

    I’m hoping for Stafford to throw for at least 2 TDs with Kupp at the receiving end tonight.

    If Eric Weddle starts for the Rams tonight that will give them 3 White starters on defense (Weddle, Reeder, Gaines) to go along with 8 White starters on offense. Yes, an NFL team with half of its starters being of the overachieving variety, including the great Cooper Kupp. Some teams have had 11 White starters in the past couple of decades (a clear majority of 12 or more remains taboo), but it's become noticeably rarer in recent years, so go Rams!

    Gents, thank you for the warm welcome. This site has been invaluable to my "understanding" of the caste system in sports.

    I was going to post about Weddle, but of course you guys are on it.
    Go Rams. Let’s see Funk get a few carries.

    Let's just say it was a questionable play call and the franchise QB showed questionable awareness when trying to setup the spike for the potential final play of the job ;)

    Come on, it was an idiotic play call, no two ways about it. The Cowboys had two options -- throw one more sideline pass and then go for the Hail Mary, or throw two Hail Marys. I don't know how many QBs would have been cool and calm knowing there was only about two seconds to get the ball spiked, but regardless Moore called one of the stupidest plays of all time.

    It was a horrible play call and a quarterback making $40 million a year should have known to slide 6 or 7 yards sooner and hand the ball directly to the umpire immediately.
