So LaConfora's man enough "email" PFT, but not respond to this situation publicly?

Surprising.

Good post JLC, turnovers will likely be critical this week, Romo tends to take chances, need to capitalize on them for sure. Blache could do this several different ways, if you look at the differences of his game plans against the Saint and Cards, he has options. The minor adjustments he made in the Giants game also offer some insight, he basically decided to let them run the ball, and make sure to stop the passing game of the Cards and Giants. Against the Saints, he dared Brees to beat us with anyone other than Bush, and he couldn't do it. So, the question needs to be, which way to go against the 'Boys? I expect he'll go with stopping the big play passing game myself, and give them the running game, with the expectation that we can eliminate their running game by putting points on the board, something the Packers couldn't do.

Addressing DCSween's Taylor question from the last thread...
Zorn explained that Taylor had what is called "compartmental syndrome." The calf was bruised, the blood had nowhere to go and was impingeing nerves. Left untreated, it can cause tissue necropsy and nerve damage. The way to treat it is to, basically, lance it. I'm not sure how much of an incision that involves or how deeply the surgeon must cut. Zorn was asked if that was the same issue with Khary Campbell and he said that it was, altho perhaps a little less dramatic, a little less serious. My take on the Taylor injury is that, potentially, it was serious in that it required immediate attention. That doesn't mean he won't bounce right back.

Good to hear from you Slim and T-Bone! I too am excited about this weekend's game. Rest assured that I will have bushels of fresh baked cookies with me when I come down to Big D. Unfortunately, due to the vagaries inherent in the human digestive system, I can't predict whether the cookies will have nuts or not. So we may have to find a work around for you Slim, since you are dentally challenged. I may bring that Palin brat to chew them up and bird feed you. It's about all she's good for. And of course I'll make some piping hot tea for everyone too. Kisses,

Pro Football Weekly Power Rankings

Wow - NFC East highly regarded sans the home team....

This answers why its an 11.5 pt game...

http://www.profootballweekly.com/PFW/NFL+Zone/Power+Rankings/2008/rankings04.htm


1. Dallas Cowboys
Consider this a warning to those who chose to forget Miles Austin.

2. New York Giants
Eli becoming synonymous with game-winning drives.

3. Philadelphia Eagles
Westbrook injury changed the offense completely.

4. Tennessee Titans
Is this the best defense in the NFL?

5. Denver Broncos
Last two games: 790 passing yards allowed.

6. Pittsburgh Steelers
Return game ­really hurting field position.

7. Buffalo Bills
That might not be the last crazy, fortunate win they get this season.

8. San Diego Chargers
Which injury hurts most — LT, Cromartie or Gates?

9. Green Bay Packers
Took their lumps vs. Cowboys’ ground game.

10. Indianapolis Colts
Bright side: Struggled to stop run in Super Bowl season, too.

11. Carolina Panthers
Why did they stop throwing to Steve Smith in second half?

12. New England Patriots
Forget Matt Cassel; the defense was miserably bad.

13. Arizona Cardinals
Defense should have better days.

14. Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Griese’s 67 attempts Sunday more than many QBs in ’08.

15. Minnesota Vikings
Big-money guys — Allen, Berrian — stepped up in win.

16. Washington Redskins
Maybe this West Coast thing can work in D.C. after all.

I think the Skins can take the Cowgirls. Since it's the last Skins/Boys matchup in Texas Stadium (unless we get 'em in the playoffs), I think the Skins will win. The last time Dallas did something special there (honoring their "Triplets"), Moss ran under two rainbows from Brunell for a 14-13 win. I think we see that again (only this time 21-20).

Posted by: brownwood26 | September 23, 2008 10:36 AM | Report abuse

I'd love to see a well-timed flea-flicker on Sunday, JC to Moss.

Also, inside the 20, a halfback option with CP tossing it to Moss/ARE/Cooley/Yoder/Whomever is in order.

We must not rely solely on trick plays to win, but we must also not be afraid to use trick plays to win.

Dallas in Dallas=Pull out all the stops.

Giants
3-0

1/7
Sure, they rolled in cruise control for the first three quarters in St. Louis. Then without mercy the Giants ripped the Rams' lunch money with three touchdowns in a four-minute span in the fourth quarter.


2
Cowboys
3-0
-
2/4
Ladies and gentlemen, we present the most explosive offense in the NFL. Romo, T.O., Barber, Witten, Felix -- plus a gi-normous offensive line that kept Tony Romo from being sacked by the blitz-happy Eagles.


3
Steelers
2-1
-
3/6
Willie Parker seems reborn behind an improved O-line, which is a good thing with his quarterback sporting a shoulder that is either separated or still connected to Ben Roethlisberger's skeletal frame -- depending on whom you choose to believe.


4
Panthers
2-1
-
4/13
How amped is Jake Delhomme this week, with his Panthers sitting at 2-0 with wins over the Chargers and improved Bears without his main man Steve Smith? Delhomme is the Cajun Tom Brady, only healthy -- having engineered two clutch fourth-quarter rallies without Smith against terrific defenses.


5
Patriots
2-1
2
2/7
Bill Belichick is the best coach of all-time, period. It's very easy to despise his (lack of) human traits publicly, but admire the organization and framework of a team that could start a quarterback who didn't start since high school and beat a team with arguably the greatest passer in NFL history.


6
Colts
1-2
-
3/6
Props to Indy for one of their "toughest" wins of the Tony Dungy era. Riddled with injuries along their offensive line, facing the NFL's best run defense, the NFL's most exciting young running back and trailing 15-0 in the second half, Peyton Manning willed his team back to avoid an 0-2 start.


7
Packers
2-1
2
7/9
General manager Ted Thompson can fire his bodyguards now, because it looks like his pet project Aaron Rodgers will be just fine. Three first-half touchdown passes in Week 2 allowed Packer management to finally exhale after trading Brett Favre this summer.


8
Broncos
3-0
7
8/21
Denver takes the league's biggest leap this week on the power of steel and brass -- the steel nerves of QB Jay Cutler, who clearly has arrived, and the brass spheres of coach Mike Shanahan, whose decision to go for a win instead of overtime against the Chargers will live forever in NFL annals.


9
Eagles
2-1
1
8/11
So that's the Donovan McNabb that football fans fell in love with years ago. A strong, healthy Eagles QB plus the league's top healthy multi-purpose back in Brian Westbrook (sorry L.T., get healthy) and McNabb's new wideout weapon DeSean Jackson form a lethal trio.


10
Chargers
1-2
5
1/10
Some will criticize ranking San Diego anywhere near the Top 10. Wake up -- to rank the Chargers in the bottom 16 based simply on two last-second losses (including one they actually won if not for a blown call) to very good Carolina and Denver teams, with injuries to their best offensive and defensive players (L.T.


11
Titans
3-0
1
10/12
Vince who? Did anyone even know Kerry Collins was still in the NFL until Vince Young got big boo-boos on his knee and psyche? Now it's Kerry Collins' team, and as long as he doesn't turn the ball over this physical Titans team should grind its way to the playoffs.


12
Bills
3-0
2
12/20
Even J.P. Losman can't complain, because Buffalo starting QB Trent Edwards has played perfectly in leading the Bills to a surprising 2-0 start. Their schedule gives the Bills a great chance to challenge the Patriots in the AFC East, but until they face the Chargers in Week 7 we will not know if Buffalo is ready to tackle the league's best teams -- both the Seahawks and Jaguars are rocked with injuries.


13
Bears
1-2
-
13/23
A running game and defense can keep you in the game, but to win the biggest games Chicago will need a true QB who can hit a pass longer than 10-15 yards. Consider this Kyle Orton's tryout season, and with the Bears' solid showing thus far he deserves the chance to establish himself as the starter beyond this season.


14
Redskins
2-1
5
14/19
Call it Zorny's Revenge. After plenty of media rip jobs crushed him for his botched Week 1 playcalling during a lazy two-minute drill, coach Jim Zorn watched his young pupil QB Jason Campbell fire the game-winning 67-yard bomb to lead a comeback win over the Saints.

La Canfora, can aviod the subject and the Post can talk about Laron's brother, Dallas week, and this that and the other but what he did was disgusting. It's childish, non-reporting, petty, and just plain dumb. He hasn't had a scoop since he's covered this team so he does this so called investigative reporting on a non issue if anything. To not only be a member of the press but supposely cover the NFL how did you even get to the rationale to accuse Vinny Cerrato of tampering, but then call the NFL to look into it? If you got out of that conversation that he had it may have been tampering either your not too bright or underqualified for your position. Nevertheless if Cindy Boren had any kind of spine at worst she would remove him from covering this team and at the least make him apologize. Too often his personal feelings and biases have come across way too strong and is enabling him from doing his job properly. As a member of the media what happened to being unbiased and to not have a rooting interest in the team your covering. And if something would have came out of this you would be on every sports show grandstanding about how stupid it was for Cerrato to do a radio show. But now it backfired and you just look like a tool for the Post and its hatred toward this team.

PFT continues to chronicle the JLC vs. Vinny pissing match:

LA CANFORA ACCUSES CERRATO OF SLANDER
Posted by Mike Florio on September 23, 2008, 9:21 a.m. EDT
It’s not yet quite as interesting as Herrera-Kawakami I, but the verbal slugfest between Jason La Canfora of the Washington Post and Redskins Executive Vice President Vinny Cerrato is nevertheless entertaining.

By way of background (for those of you who didn’t check the site last night and prefer to get the story without having to exert the effort of, you know, scrolling down the page), Cerrato said during his Monday radio show that La Canfora had called the league office regarding comments Cerrato made on Friday about Raiders coach (for now) Lane Kiffin.

“Jason La Canfora, he called the NFL to ask them, are they not gonna charge the Washington Redskins with tampering,” Cerrato said on Monday.

At one point on Monday, Cerrato was imprecise (inadvertently or otherwise) in his description of the situation, and he suggested that La Canfora had actually “charged” the Redskins with tampering.

Later on Monday, the Post responded to Cerrato’s accusation via an entry from sports editor Emilio Garcia-Ruiz.

Garcia-Ruiz explained that La Canfora called the league office only to generally ask whether tampering rules could be implicated if Cerrato were to answer questions about persons under contract with other NFL teams, and that the Kiffin situation was mentioned only to “provide context.”

But then Garcia-Ruiz offered a quote from a league spokesman, which painted a somewhat different picture, in our view: “Jason LaCanfora called our office and said that Vinny Cerrato was talking in specifics on his radio show about the Raiders’ coaching position. Jason wanted to know if that could possibly be a tampering issue.”

Despite the tap-dancing from Garcia-Ruiz, the reality is that La Canfora specifically called about the Kiffin comments, and not part of a general inquiry into what Cerrato can and can’t say about persons under contract with other teams. The reasonable inference that can be drawn from this is that La Canfora was hoping to blow the whistle on Cerrato and the Redskins.

And now that we’ve fully summarized the situation via ten minutes of typing in order to save our fine audience from two seconds of scrolling, here’s the latest. In an e-mail sent by La Canfora on Monday afternoon regarding the situation, La Canfora offered this stinging assessment of Cerrato: “He is a making a mockery of fact and reality and trying to play people for fools. . . . Its [a] pathetic attempt to slander me, but not surprising in the least given who it is coming from.”

Ouch.

On one hand, we’d love to see this thing further disintegrate into allegations of pot-smoking and threats of litigation and/or physical violence. On the other hand, it needs to end.

We think that La Canfora had every right to ask the question that he posed to the league office, but he should not be surprised that Cerrato reacted negatively. And Garcia-Ruiz shouldn’t try to apply D.C.-style political spin to the apparent fact that La Canfora was trying to agitate.

That’s what we do. We look for ways to legitimately stir things up. But when an effort to do so requires us to pick eggshells out of our eyebrows, the better approach is to move on.

And if we choose not to move on, we need to at least acknowledge that, yeah, we were thinking that maybe we’d get someone in trouble for doing something they shouldn’t have been doing, and thus fully deserve to get into trouble for. If the media declined to take such chances for fear of periodically being incorrect, then lots of wrongdoing would never be exposed.

In this specific case, however, we’re still a bit troubled by La Canfora’s apparent personal bias against Cerrato. It’s an issue that surely will affect La Canfora’s relationship with Cerrato, and possibly others in the franchise, and it’s something about which the readers of the Post should be aware as they assess La Canfora’s reports and opinions about the team.

Who said something about giving it to the firms so someone could walk away rich? I said insure the integrity of our system. Reading is fundamental in order to hold a job but you dems don't really worry about that.

As for deregulation well it began under the Clinton Administration and Greenspan under the watchful eye of a democratically controlled house and senate. I know they teach you to be a victim in Dem School but the enemy in all this is greed. Why don't you find out when the banking industry was deregulated and multi state banking was enabled? When banks and financial institutions were allowed to intermingle? Go look that up.

Quite objectively, almost all experts agree Dallas is the best team as we speak.

This game Sunday will be a true and accurate measuring stick. The best team in football a year or two ago was NE. The Skins visited Foxboro at that time and we all remember how that went.
