    I wonder if it's a rough week for injuries just a freakish coincidence or the lack of pre-season.

    OMG total disbelief from this guy. WTF did the Cowboys just do?

    That kick was going left and then straightened out.

    That ball was going left and SOMEHOW STRAIGHTENED OUT!

    WTF IS GOING ON!

    THAT ONSIDE KICK WAS SPINNING AT ABOUT 30 MPH AND DIDN'T LOOK LIKE IT HAD A PRAYER OF GOING 10 YARDS. AND, IT DID!

    AND, WHY WERE THE ATLANTA PLAYERS ACTING LIKE THEY COULDN'T TOUCH THE BALL UNTIL IT TRAVELED 10 YARDS??

    WTF IS GOING ON! THIS IS CRAZY! COWBOYS WIN! COWBOYS WIN! COWBOYS....WIN!!!!

    AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    8-8 Bowl Game with some 8-8 stuff, both teams play a great half and a terrible half of offense with suspect defenses. Both teams do their best to blow the game away. It was remarkably mediocre.

    Don’t think I’ve ever seen an onside kick or coverage like that. Total blunder by the Falcons.

    Pats/Seahawks closer than I thought it would be. Russell has been demonic this year. But, the Pats maybe better than believe.

    Russell Willson relationship with his coach and offense is what you want to see with natural progression. Getting better every year to the point of mastery.

    not this DW4/BOB **** where they still can barely run basic plays half the time.

    Not really, ATL feel asleep mentally. All they had to do was pick it up, the Cowboys had to wait for it to go 10 yards, ATL didn't.

    The head coach basically took the blame. Said they never expected a kick like that on the ground. They are always bounce kicked in the air. Those front guys are expecting to block. Even so, you could tell a couple of those guys really wanted to jump on it but it was like they were expecting each other to do it and then, by the time they finally got around to it, it was too late. And, I'm not convinced that if those ATL guys jump on it early and the way the ball was spinning, that they would grab it cleanly. I would almost expect it to squib out and then be a bunch of guys diving for a loose ball.

    I personally think that was a 1-in-5000 onside kick scenario. I mean...the kick was just perfect for what you want the ball to do. That ball almost had eyes and a life of its own. That ball was a Cowboys fan. I would put that thing in the trophy case.

    No doubt, but you at least TRY to grab it. They sat there and watched the other team easily pick it up.

    Is there any connection between those injuries and no preseason?
