    Concerning DirecTV

    I don't believe YouTube gets NBC Sports Philadelphia, does it? For me, that's a deal breaker.

    We don't play the game. You have to be able to take joy in the big plays. Well, you don't HAVE to, but you should. We lost in the playoffs in 2010, does that diminish the Miracle at the New Meadowlands in your mind, since that season was a 'failure' of a season? It shouldn't. (Yes, I know we won the game, but we lost 'the season' by not winning the Super Bowl). I still take joy in all of the big plays from 1976 through 2018... and beyond (Somehow I hear a quote from Toy Story in my head...)

    Daks Agent wants $34m per year

    Has Dez Bryant signed with anyone or is he still with the Saints?

    One Open Training Camp Day? Charging to Get In?!?!?

    I don't think the $10 is as much of a complaint as it is the single opportunity. If there were 10 or 20 practices and the $10 charge, I don't think a lot of people would complain. There's likely be complaints, but not as many who are complaining now about only having a single opportunity to go see them.

    Giants fans... Talk about the Giants

    The more I hear form Mayfield, the more I don't like him and hope he flames out.

    I'm just curious, how much more time do you want Eli to hang in there? Are you in for the long haul or are you about ready to have him retire?

    Giants fans... Talk about the Giants

    I presume that Giants fans have seen or heard about Beckham's comments about how he 'couldn't reach his full potential' as a Giant and now that he's a Brown, he can. Any thoughts on it?

    Dak Prescott or Kirk Cousins?

    None of the above. Carson Wentz

    Yeah, I kind of mentioned that lol. But ultimately, as I mentioned, they didn't win the Super Bowl. Like I said, you have to step back a little and just take joy in the plays, win or lose.

    You have to step outside of the overall picture a little and just focus on the individual moments. It's like the Immaculate Reception for Steelers fans. Yes, they won that game but ultimately, it didn't matter because they lost the following week and didn't make it to the Super Bowl. Or the Minneapolis Miracle from 2017. The ultimate high for Vikings fans... until a week later when they had their ultimate of ultimate's low (since a win would have had them at home for the Super Bowl) at the hands of Nick Foles and Doug Pederson. I'm sure for Vikings fans, they couldn't enjoy that play for a while and maybe not even now, but in 5 or 10 years they'll be talking fondly of it even if it's a bitter sweet memory. I can look back at the great plays and enjoy them, whether the game was a win or a loss. Well, in most cases. I can't enjoy any of our Super Bowl XV (I was almost 12) or XXXIX plays, great or good. I can't even bring myself to watch either of those games again, and XV was what, 38 years ago? I think that game was the first time I cried because of a football game... and come to think of it, I think Super Bowl LII (I was almost 49) was the only other time that I've cried because of a football game. Both cries were very different cries though lol.

    I knew that the league would figure Kelly out. I didn't know how long it would take, but I didn't expect it to take long. At best, a full season so that by year 2, nothing he did would 'work' like it had in year 1. I was off a little in that 'at best' thought. It took about a half of the first game. The 1st half of the Redskins game (in 2013), was awesome. The second half, not quite as awesome. There were still games where things worked well, but little by little, DC's across the schedule were adapting. So much so that by year 3, before the snap, defenses were calling out what the Eagles offense was running. Some were calling it a 'high school' offense, if I remember correctly. With Doug, as I said in the 'Official' hire thread, I was curious to see how he'd be as a HC. I knew that we'd move back to more of a WCO but would it be a clone of Andy's WCO or would Doug have his own slant on it? With Garrett, he's been the Cowboys coach for what, 9 years now? It's known what he is and he is what he is. Looking at his record, in full seasons, he's had 4 seasons over .500 and 4 seasons at or below .500. Throw in his first season as HC, which was half a season and he has 5 seasons over .500 (though the team was .500 that season). He's almost in Marvin Lewis territory, though a tad better. Lewis went to the playoffs 3 times and never won (in his first 9 years). Garrett has gone to the playoffs 3 times and won 2 games in those 3 trips. How long will the Cowboys (both the franchise and the fanbase), be patient with Garrett's mediocrity? Not that I'm complaining or in a hurry for them to get a better coach but as an outside observer, if I step outside of my fandom for a minute, I just have to wonder why the team hasn't moved on yet and why the fanbase hasn't been rioting for that move to take place. Why is Jones so dead set on keeping Garrett?

    Yeah, I loved doing that too. The only problem with the archive is that the boards database gets so large, that the Admins eventually go in and delete years worth of posts. It's for that reason that I asked that the Super Bowl LII thread be preserved for all time, it wound up getting pinned in 411 (I assume to preserve it from eventual deletion)

    lol Yeah, I was on page 5 around the time you posted this, then a huge storm knocked the power out an it didn't come back on until about 4 am. I'll have to go back and finish the thread later today.

    I wonder what the Cowboys boards had to say about it. Before I go looking for that, I think I'll enjoy this thread:

    It's always fun to re-read the history as it unfolded...

    Daks Agent wants $34m per year

    I doubt you were thinking that when he was hired in 2016. I think all Redskins, Giants and Cowboys fans were universally laughing at the Eagles at that time. There were even a good portion of Eagles fans who were cursing Lurie for it. Though many of them would probably deny it now.

    That was definitely a great play, it was Hall of Fame DE Bruce Smith that Randall ducked under. Smith later went on to play for the Redskins and McNabb made him whiff also. You can watch the Randall play and not be disappointed.

    All Time QB rankings... Do championships matter?

    If someone is caught cheating and is punished, should the Hall of Fame 'Pete Rose' that person?

    Win us another Lombardi and all's good. That's really the only thing that I care about.
