    Yep, doesn't come as a surprise.

    If you saw the Cowboys' last effort, you might think they were doing you a favor by blocking the game. ;)

    I'll try to keep my powder dry until the delayed broadcast. :D

    And now Witten's out with internal bleeding, possibly having to do with his spleen.

    I was thinking the reason it did not sell out was that unlike the Packer fans, the Cowboy fans have grown wary of their performance so they were in no rush to pay full price for a preseason game. Very understasndable.

    The fans who saw the Cowboys vs Raiders game in person should've marched to the ticket office and demanded their money back. The idea that owners can charge full price for a pathetic performance like that is truly offensive.

    Radio killed the video star, works for me. I kinda like listening to games on the radio though I'd take TV as a first choice.

    A game they should have blacked out...Raiders/Cardinals.

    WOW the Raiders looked awful, completely dominated by the Cards until the 3rd stringers started coming in.

    McFadden could have an LT 2003 type year, 1600 yards, 100 catches, on a 4-12 team.

    Wait....... are you talking about the same Cardinals team that in its first two games, looked like the worst team in the NFL? :eek:

    The mind boggles. ;)

    Who really cares. Chargers pre-season performances never tell what happens in the regular season.

    NFL network replays all the preseason games. Bolts are usually on early am.

    I'll DVR & watch when I get home from our gig. Hopefully a nice way to unwind.

    Just stay healthy.

    I'm more worried about regular season and I'm not 100% sure on the PM use, I've answered them but have never initiated one.

    You know whats awesome? Thanks to NFL Network we're gonna get to see the 4th quarter of a preseason game between the Jets and Giants, and miss the first hour (the only part anyone cares about) of our game.
