  1. Rather have Niners win now. Don’t need an injured Cowboy team going to a healthy Philly.

  2. Honestly both of these teams look real bad right now. Philly would roll either one of them. Dallas would probably play them better just because of the rivalry, but Dak is really now a below average QB. IM SURE THE COWBOY FANS GONNA CONE OUT AND HATE THIS, but…… the stats don’t lie folks. He’s a turnover machine. Also looks like he can’t move anymore. Very similar to the aging McNabb.

  3. If Cowboys make it to Philly they will really miss Pollard. Zeke is slow and looks used up.

  4. Uh huh. Ever since their first possession, I was yelling at anyone who would listen that Dak was going to throw at least 1 pick by half and he threw 2. He throws late to the sideline of the far sideline so much, it’s amazing he doesn’t throw more to be honest

    I don’t have a team says:

  5. Dak reminds me of Derek Carr. Good to average QB but not great . Just cant seem to get it done. He needs a good win like todays game to solidify his place in Dallas or he could be expendable.

  6. Buffalo is fading out. Gonna be KC and Cincinnati for years dominating the AFC. If the owner of Buffalo was smart he’d hire Sean Payton.

  7. Neither of these teams has any chance of beating the Iggles. ZERO! The eagles will be winning the Supewr Bowl this year you can book it.

  8. Dak constantly throws late to the sidelines and has missed at least 7 receivers today if the ball had been put in the right place!!! Time to move on from DAK — he cannot win on the big stage ….

  9. Cowboys fan here. Dak has been overrated since the beginning. I like his physicality but Purdy is making the better throws in the game. Cowboys rolled the dice on Dak and it didn’t happen. They’re stuck with Dak for a couple more years then start again.

  10. Dak is a light skin version of Tony Romo.

    Puts up good regular season stats but chokes in the playoffs

  11. How bout dem Boys they just lost the game all the fraud teams were exposed today and last weekend. Bengals against the Eagles in the big game!

  12. If you don’t have an elite QB, you need an elite head coach or OC/playcaller. If you have neither, you’re screwed.

  13. I have had many broken bones and rolled ankles but I never had anything like a bad high ankle sprain. It’s been 3 months and I’m still feeling it. That was my 1st and I’m 61 years old… and I hope it’s my last. I hope he fully recovers.

  14. Nobody – not one person – who saw this bought the “high ankle sprain” story. That leg snapped in front of God, Fox, and everybody with eyes. What compelled the Dallas brain trust to flat-out lie about it?
