    They were 6-2 in 2009, they were 6-1 in 2007, they were 6-2 in 2003...point is the Cowboys getting hyped up as a SB contender has nothing to do with their record, they are overhyped every single year and for nearly 20 years, they've ended up choking. I see no reason why this season should be any different.

    So the last time they were remotely this good was 7 years ago. That means every October to you. Got it.

    Nearly every October they are over hyped as if they are a SB contender no matter what their record....I never said they had a 6-1 record every season.

    Name an article this October prior to this record that shows the Cowboys as a "playoff" contender, not even SB contender.

    Again, know your football PLEASE.

    I wonder how many ATL and DET fans from the US made the trip.

    Loving the response from the London crowd so far, though. I'm thinking the some/most of the crowd might not know the rules, but they can definitely appreciate when the football is good.

    Bucs in serious tank mode , Vincent Jackson to any of those teams would be ridiculous.

    Seahawks want to part ways with Beast Mode? WTF
    Bucs want to tank after giving McCoy that gigantic extension? lol
    Gruden wants to come back...to the Raiders? Huh?

    Derek Carr hasn't been bad this season. Not sure if Manziel would have been better.

    Meanwhile, quarterback Russell Wilson had nothing to do with the team's recent trade that sent Percy Harvin to the Jets, sources said.

    Sources said that Wilson had known for almost a month that the Seahawks were going to trade Harvin and, as ESPN reported last week, Wilson argued with general manager John Schneider and coach Pete Carroll to keep Harvin on the team until he was told it was futile to make a case for Harvin, who had worn out his welcome.

    Any "envy" directed toward Wilson in the locker room is more aligned with quarterback dynamics, including the fact the star quarterback has major marketing endorsements, sources said.

    Wilson was asked by the organization if he could limit some of his endorsements but they were all filmed during the offseason and his CBA-driven base salary of $662,000 is about half of what backup Tarvaris Jackson makes.

    Some of Wilson's income footed the bill to fly his receivers to California for offseason workouts when they were not allowed on facility grounds. Otherwise, in-season, team sources said that he's all football, except for the time he spends at Seattle's Children Hospital on Tuesdays. The so-called divided locker room is very much overstated, sources said.

    Oh Atlanta, so pathetic.

    Just stay over there in London.

    Mike Smith, you're gone.

    Perfect example of how a team with elite WR's and a semi-elite QB still need all other parts to be "clicking" to be successful.

    But Smith is "tough" this year. And the hipster GM is "changing things"

    And I thought the Texans melted down in Pittsburgh before the half.

    Mother of God Chicago.
