  1. Glad to see Dallas’ 3 RBs are back. Now let’s see if Coach Wade and OC Garrett utilize them properly.
    “Man cannot live by the run alone.”
    – Me
    Gotta balance that run/pass attack.

  2. Childress is too busy keeping his lips attached to Favre’s behind to notice what’s happening with any of his other players.
    So who do you think the Vikings coach will be next year when their QB tanks late in the season again and their one-year experiment goes down the toliet?

  3. “Bears coach Lovie Smith wouldn’t rule out a change in personnel on the offensive line.”
    How about a change in offensive coaching ???
    Ron Turner BLOWS !!!!
