Neither of those guys is the type of RB that you want to trot out for 25 carries a game.

Definitely agree about Felix. I know he's delicate and not that great running up the middle, but the guy has obvious talent if you know how to use him. Throw him a few screen passes or something.

The secondary looked good last night. Thankfully they dropped a few of the knuckleheads they had there last year. It certainly didn't hurt that the Giants made a lot of drops on crucial plays.

Yeah Victor Cruz isn't going to be dropping wide open passes like that in December.

Nice to see the Dallas guys enjoying themselves for once. Treasure these moments, fellas, because by the end of this thread you're going to have the pitchforks out again.

Yeah, they didn't blow any calls horribly last night, at least no more so than the regular ref would likely have done also.

Yah, probably need to tap the breaks a little.

It would be just like them to have a let down against SEA.

I don't see anyone being anything but cautious in their optimism. They just won the season opener against the defending NFL champs. That's something to celebrate.

+1 I fully expected us to lose that game. A very pleasant surprise. I also think the game would have gone in the other direction if Cruz had made those catches.

Two days to go. Can't wait. Football season is like 16 weeks of Christmas.

first game of the season, so I can understand committing some penalties. But all those pre-snap penalties ugh. 1 in 30 is a tall order.

I don't like eli manning or the giants so it was nice seeing them lose biggrin.gif

Did any of you get to see this?

I found it disturbing.

I'm in shock. We've had 20 years of QB incompetence, so I don't know how to react.
