Same thing in Los Angeles. They talk about the Cowboys all the time there because of the huge fanbase there.

Well, that's you. When you have friends telling you things like "Sean Lee is going to be the next Keith Brooking" or "AOA is going to be the best Dallas corner in a few years", then you can't help but take a little notice. Hell, I have even made some of my friends who are Cowboys fans know more about the Texans just because I'm a fan. All watched the Colts at Texans games, for example. All knew about Arian Foster and the Texans' secret project in Dorin Dickerson, etc.

Exactly.

Cowboys fans are everywhere (a reason why many call them bandwagoners). They are the Lakers and Yankees of the NFL. Every sport has that kind of team. And you don't speak for all Cowboys fans. We have plenty of Cowboys fans at the Texans board, that like to discuss the Texans with us.

But if you cannot get what you need for the right price, what's the point of making the trade just to make it. That's the part you don't understand. The Packers would give us a guard if we traded Choice to them. That's not what we need. Barber is also not the weak link. He's just misused.
I just put the Packers as an example, since they just lost Grant for the season. They'd probably pay a high price, since they're desperate. And it's not making a trade just to make it. Getting so few carries a game does not let the RB get into a rhythm. I've heard it a lot around DFW that Barber is the weak link. Choice provides a lot of Barber's toughness, but is also quicker than Barber. Felix has the speed. Barber is starting to break down, in my opinion, but he's smart and running out of bounds more instead of trying to plow over people.

That does not mean they are overrated. And yes, Haynesworth didn't play well last year on that line. But Orakpo did. So did Fletcher at the LB spot. I hate the Skins. But a bad or overrated defense is something that they do not have. All of their problems last year stemmed on offense and special teams. This is a first that I'm hearing the Redskins have an overrated defense when the statistics and play proved otherwise. Their defense last year kept them in many close games.
I don't know. Like you said earlier, the Cowboys had no problem moving the ball against them. The Cowboys just do what the Cowboys do and didn't convert in the the red zone (or at least when they got near the red zone). I just think their defense is overrated this year because of the switch to the 3-4, a system their DC has never ran.

Quote:
I never said you did ask a redskin fan and I never said that the Ravens aren't shown in the DC area. I said I don't care about some link because I'm going by personal experience over a link. Also, once again, the Cowboys are shown more than the Ravens in the DC area simply because more people in the DC area want to see the Cowboys over the Ravens. And it's coming out now that this was only for the Baltimore tv stations, not Washington DC. So WUSA9 will show the Redskin game in it's entirety. So no, it doesn't go against what I'm saying. My point though anyway initially is that the Redskin fans do not care about the Ravens.
Of course, and I never stated that Redskins fans care about the Ravens. Though, it appears Cowboys fans don't care about the Redskins. Last time I checked, Dallas is the only market in Texas not showing the Texans (team they will play a week after) at Redskins (long-time division rival) game. Instead, the Patriots at the overrated Jets are being shown (times like these is why I need Sunday Ticket).

I said over the past couple of years. Not now. But over the last few years, there have been all type of jokes and dissing of Romo, Jerry, and the franchise. Hell, there's one on the Texans board now.
Link?

regarding whether or not the Cowboys will make it to the SuperBowl--
article in FTW paper's sport section had quote from Phillip's--
basically he said that people should not be worried the Cowboys were struggling until after FIVE GAMES--if they were still having trouble scoring from the red zone after 5 games then people had a right to criticize their performance--
that says it all--
if he thinks he has FIVE games in his division play to see whether or not he has a problem scoring from the red zone--that just shows he is totally unfit to coach in NFL--and why he is maybe a decent defensive coordinator but just don't not have the smarts/talent/whatever to understand how to run a team...
wait 5 games to decide of scoring from the red zone is an issue--
check your stats WADE
this is good article explaining how weak the Cowboys' red zone efficiency is and that it did not start with this first game of this season...
Spagnola: Red Zone Inefficiency Cramps Cowboys (http://www.dallascowboys.com/news/news.cfm?id=05228F51-E17D-5A31-6E4780FDA63B04ED - broken link)

this weakness started in 07 --what else started in 07???
Jason Garrett became offensive coordinator---

You wish.

California & Texas (with the exception of a couple of cities having their similarities) are complete opposites of each other. Nobody there cares anything about the Dallas Cowboys & vice versa.

Cowboys did hold some training camps in Oxnard (which isn't LA). There are probably some fans up there because of that.

I don't know why they feel a need to have this grand world tour during training season. Its obviously hurting more than helping them. Their losing first game against Houston, which Dallas of course blamed on a "hectic" pre-season schedule. Pssh...gimme a break!

Why couldn't they just train at Valley Ranch like they used to?

They haven't held training camp at Valley Ranch for nearly two to four decades. They held training camp in Austin when they won superbowls. They held training camp in California in the 70s when they went to 5 superbowls winning 2 of them. Dallas has always marketed it's franchise around the country. You forget that this is a business and this helps Dallas become one of the most successful, most profitable franchises in American sports. And it doesn't matter if California and Texas are polar opposites to become a fan in sports. Hell, it doesn't stop the Washington DC area from having so many Cowboy fans. In fact, they sell Cowboy apparel side by side with Redskin apparel and Washington DC and Texas are polar opposites from each other. There's also a very large Cowboy fan base in New Jersey.

BTW, Dallas was voted number 1 again in 2009 and 2010.

Honestly dude, nobody cares for the Tarrant County Cowboys outside of Texas.

It is you that needs to get over yourself. You are the one obsessing over the Cowboys and everything that is the city of Dallas. You hardly have anything positive to say about the region and especially the city. BTW, for the last time, Dallas Cowboys operations and Valley Ranch is still in Dallas County.
