They were actually third. They were second behind the Redskins. But there won't be anyone passing the Cowboys for a while. Maybe the Giants. Maybe.

That's a part of it, but Dan Marino, Peyton Manning, and Tom Brady didn't exactly break all of those passing records because they had a powerful running game.

And, I don't know why it would tell you that. We've had two goalline carries in which Chris Brown couldn't run it in and half of our O-Line looked like turtles on the back of their shells.

This Sunday's effort is definitely not our peak. Especially offensively (they scored more points in the Titan game earlier in the season).

And Benson isn't a premier back? He definitely has been showing the naysayers wrong since the middle of last season. Dude has been on fire! First RB to rush for over 100 yards against the Ravens in 39 games. Benson has been playing MUCH BETTER than Marion Barber, LJ, and LT. Adrian Peterson runs over everybody and Ray Rice is a clone of Maurice Jones-Drew (who the Texans faced, before acquiring the run-stopper Bernard Pollard).

Did you not see where I posted that the run defense has held the opposing team to an average of 46 YPG (the past three games)? .
I realize that the run defense has been effective in the past three games. But which of those teams had a running back even equal to [much less, better] than Benson. Drew Jones was about as close as it gets. They dont really have to face any dominate backs in the regular season other than maybe Steven Jackson, but he is doing horrible so far this season, so they should be able to remain effective against the run in the regular season. Now if they ever get a wildcard, or make the playoffs, they can probably hang it up.


But good points, and in all honesty I can only respect you for continuing to be onboard with them through all of these disappointing seasons, at least for me they have been disappointing.. Especially last year's. Cant lie, I hopped off the bandwagon after last season.

They're facing Frank Gore this Sunday. That's probably the most elite back, but they also have to face MJD again (who torched them Week 3). But the entire defense has stepped up. Just that the run defense is the most notable difference.

They're my team.

Well. the thing with the Giants is that they share their profits and revenues from the stadium with the Jets. So it's not actually a definitely at all. Even when Dallas was in Texas Stadium, they were higher than the Giants.

You act like you have part ownership in the Cowboys.

I really don't care who is the second most valuable franchise. All I'm saying is the Giants DEFINITELY have the better chance of passing up the Cowboys with their new stadium. Especially if they get naming rights from one of the big NYC companies.

Houston is tenth by the way with $1.2 billion.

I hope your first comment wasn't to me because that's not how my post came out.

Anyway, the Giants with their current stadium vs the Cowboys with their old stadium still was below the Cowboys and Giants stadium was bigger than Texas Stadium. The Giants again has to share it's stadium with the Jets. It won't just come down to them. Also, Dallas could get a big name DFW company. How does Exxon Field sound?

Exxon Field? Nasty.

Maybe AT&T or something. And true about the Jets. They come in right behind the Giants in revenue.

No better than Enron Field lol. I kinda like At&t. But honestly, I would take that number 2 place or whatever if we can name the field, Tom Landry Field. But you know it won't happen. Not on Jerrah's watch.
