If Dak Prescott can continue playing like he did last night, the Boys found their backup. I was pleasantly surprised.

I would feel safe saying they will not fall below 32. (this year)
With that awesome quarterback they overpaid stole from Denver, how could they go wrong??

I think we (Houston) will surprise some people this year. I'm going to meet some friends in Denver for the MNF game in October.

I'm envious! It should be a fun game to attend.

Houston always seems to find a way to screw it up. It's a skill they have developed over many years. Savage actually looked pretty good in last night preseason game, or was it SF played that bad?

I've never put too much value in who wins these preseason games regardless of who is playing in the QB position. So we will just have to wait and see what happens in September. Come to think of it, I'll need to start placing bets pretty soon.

Another stellar performance by Dak Prescott. This 5th rd pick is looking better than any of the other QBs picked in earlier rounds. Romo better look out, Dak wants your job.

Im slowly getting ready. Its been several months since I laid the bets as I do them in the spring. I am a hired hand fan. Usually a nice yearly supplemental to the fixed pensioners income, but being it is for entertainment value also, I have to bet overs. I tried unders and won, but boring. Rooting for a team to lose all year long is just not fun. Taking Ravens 8 ovr, Chargers 6.5 ovr, Falcons 7 ovr. If push the number you get your money back. I always love playing previously good teams who got unmercifully beat up with injuries last year and get rewarded with the last place schedule. Chargers and Ravens fit that bill for this season.

Geez, Romo goes down on 3rd play, laying on ground holding his back, and then is kept out the remainder of the game. Wanted to go back in, but staff wouldn't let him. It didn't look like much of a hit, although he may have landed funny when he tried to slide down after running the ball. Dak continued to look good against a tough D.

And I hope he gets it. Romo doesn't seem to have the health required to last an entire season. Prescott is good, and with enough experience, could be great.

Romo's "three plays and you are out" performance last night was even worse than I expected. Still, ...

I cringe when people talk about football and refer to "our" team. Or "we're" going to beat so and so. Vomit...you're not part of the team...there is no "we" and "us." You're getting excited over a bunch of dudes trying to move a leather object to the other side of the field. Just stop.

Its also hilarious that the NFL is a charitable organization. Nice of them to dodge taxes.

Seriously...you're not part of the team. The next time you say us, our, we when referring to your favorite team...take a look around and see what setting you're in. Most are either stuck in a cube farm at an office, a lot are working assembly line work and whoever is remaining are working for a corporation. Or worse yet you're retired and still care about the nfl like you're part of some team.

Next time you buy a jersey think about your favorite QB who just purchased a 10 million dollar home and 3 new exotic cars. Wake up folks.

I suggest you find more important things to complain about.

I enjoy football, but they'll (whoever they is) be "my team" when I start getting profit sharing checks.

You are sounding more and more like a troll.
