The Dallas Cowboys are now 4-1. It is a great start to what could be a wonderful season. The offense is playing well, the defense is getting better and because of the luck of the draw, the team has a fairly soft schedule.
Is it too soon to order playoff tickets, absolutely but it isn’t too early to be happy and to enjoy the journey. Too often as Sports fans we want to safeguard our sports hearts being broken, as they said on Ted Lasso it’s the hope that kills ya. Well, I say do you believe in miracles? Lets enjoy the journey and see what happens.
The Cowboys hosted the Carolina Panthers on Sunday. The game was another strong one for the offense scoring 36 points. Zek continues to run hard and Pollard is a nice compliment. Even Dak got into the running game with a couple of scrambles. Dak continues to do a great job of spreading the ball around to his receivers including one of my current favorite players Dalton Schultz.
The Defense had another solid game with Trevon Diggs having two interceptions. Micah Parsons continues to show a lot of potential especially for a rookie.
The team is at 3-1 with the New York Football Giants coming to the Deathstar on Sunday. Still too early to be very excited but so far so good.
Monday Night Football is not what it used to be but it is still something special when your team is playing on Monday night. Over the past few years, it feels like the Dallas Cowboys do not do well on Sunday or Monday nights. That was not the case this week. The Eagles traveled to Dallas in a NFC East battle. Dallas played well and despite a few missteps had a very nice game. Chris came over to watch the game and we were both very happy with the results. I’m especially happy to see Dalton Schultz have a good season. Chris has joked around that he is going to get me his Jersey for Christmas. Dak, Zek, Pollard, Lamb all having good seasons. 2-1 and we face the Carolina Panthers on Sunday.
It’s another week in the NFL and the Dallas Cowboys went to California to play the San Diego, I mean the Los Angeles Chargers. The Chargers had multiple big plays called back because of penalties. In fact the referees seemed to really like throwing the yellow flag around on Sunday. The Cowboys played well, a very nice running game from both Zek and Pollard and Dak continues to spread his passes around to multiple receivers.
After last week’s poor performance from Greg Zuerlein, it was good to see him go 2/2 including the winning 56 yard Field Goal. The defense is starting to show some improvement (they couldn’t be worse than last year) and our number one draft pick Micah Parsons might have a little something.
Next week, the dreaded and feared Philadelphia Eagles which means we get the Touchdown Brothers on 96.7/1310 The Ticket this week.
