    While I think we are better with Big Mac than without, I think we will still beat a lot of blitzes with him sitting at home.

    VJ, I wonder if Rivers made him better than he really was. Perhaps not, but it makes me wonder.

    Well... the clean sheet wasn't going to happen. Romo was luck to get that off when he did because his RT was half a second more away from getting a holding call hugging Garay's waste.

    Because there are patches of Dallas fans everywhere... and Los Angeles is no different. They happily made the commute.

    If you lived in Texas you'd want to get the hell out of there too. It doesn't get much better than San Diego.

    No, just Clary failing in space... AGAIN. Vasquez had to try and pull double duty on that one and Hatcher just blew right by him as soon as he turned his attention to the OLB for a split second.

    First half thoughts:

    RYAN MATHEWS!!! That is all.

    No, seriously, the offense made the Cowboys' first team defense look like absolute s**t out there. Rivers threw to everyone in navy blue with ease and Mathews has now shown everyone that there is no such thing as an arm tackle with him. Everyone is a yard (or more) behind him by the time they even see his jersey; I'm immediately reminded of his episode of Sports Science where he showcased his lateral abilities.

    The offensive line is nice and physical, which is coming in very handy for the run game. For a while, both sides of the line had the pass protection down as well. Clary started blowing it and then at the end of the half Dombrowski started to as well. Those three sacks (2 official) were on the offensive lineman. I disagree, the pressure to get McNeil on that line is righteously growing.

    Defense = solid. Cason is a good 200x better than Cromartie ever was. Hell, Strickland is 100x better. They're avoiding Jammer - good call on their part. The defensive line is easily getting pressure and pushing that Cowboys line in any direction they want.

    The lack of penalties is very encouraging.

    My eyes will be on the WR corps mostly this next half. I just wish they'd get more reps with Rivers. I hope we see more Curtis Brinkley tonight too. On defense, fixed solely on this rotational experiment we've got at defensive line. GO BOLTS! :bolt:.
