    With the next significant challenge to the bolts coming from the Cowboys it seems like the perfect time to compare the two quarterbacks involved.

    First lets look at Rivers... Phillip Rivers and the Chargers have been unbeatable in December, literately. At the point of this post the bolts have gone 14-0 with Rivers at QB in december. Unless the world ends and the browns become a decent team, they will likely be 15-0 in december with rivers.

    Meanwhile Tony Romo, the supposed "FRANCHISE" QB for Dallas has gone 5-8. :icon_rofl::icon_rofl::icon_rofl:

    Does Romo even have a chance against the far superior bolts and the much much better Rivers? It seems like the only thing franchise about Romo is that he is embarrassing a once great franchise....

    Anyway I know people realize now how questionable of a QB ROMO can be but I just don't understand how he is STILL so overhyped. Granted he does play for the cowboys and they get alot of attention no matter what but come on. A year or two ago people were saying he was better than AIKMAN? WTF? AIKMAN got 3 rings and ROMO just keeps epicly failing.

    If Jim Harbaugh was captain comeback ROMO seems to be captain don't come back because you can't win in the clutch!!!

    Dallas will win this game against the Bolts. I had this as a loss before the season started. Watch and see if Romo doesn't have 3 td's and around 350 yards, and one of their RB's having over 100 yards.

    The Cowpies have no identity right now. They were frankly very lucky to beat the Eagles and Redskins.

    That being said, going into anyone's house in December is a challenge, especially against a team coming off an emotional loss. While I think it will be a good test, I agree with Leo.

    We win a squeaker to go to 10-3.

    Rivers is going to need to have the game of his life. We can't afford any 3 and outs or turnovers....NONE.

    I still don't trust the defense, even if Merriman and Castillo come back.

    Chargers 38
    Cowboys 37

    The Cowboy's seem to have out # I have no clue why but they always seem to beat us. Or it might just seem that way as I can't stand that team, never have, never will.

    I don't put much stock in that considering they play us once every four years.

    Different teams, different stories.

    The last time the Cowboys played the Chargers Drew Brees was still in San Diego.

    Not having Weddle handy will be a tough pilll to swallow for the running game, but I guarantee that our LBs will have opportunities to pick a few balls this next game that could be game-changer if they aren't dropped (Cooper).

    But the Cowboy defense will not be able to stop our Charger offense...IMO, it is the Cowboys that need to worry about 3-and-outs and turning the ball over, not us. There have been games this season where their offense has failed to show up. The Bolts offense ALWAYS shows up.

    Wait? Weddle is out next week too? That makes a big difference...

    Anyway, If u look at what the Cowgirls d did against the giants just think about what we can do...

    It could be a shoot out!

    Three most overrated QBs in the NFL:

    1. Jay Cutler
    2. ECry Manning
    3. Tony Romo

    I don't think Cutler tops that list anymore by virtue of not being rated very high like he once was.

    Because he is the Qb of the Cowboys.

    Manning is overhyped based on his name.

    Jay Cutler, his stats last season (even tho the only stat that matters he's a fcukin failure).

    Romo gets to watch how QB is supposed to be played next week.

    You can move over & take notes as well, Witten.

    That pretty new stadium is gonna look like a bloody stock pen when we're done.

    10-3

    Romo played great against the Giants on the road this past week. It wasn't his fault the defense chocked.

    Bolts 9-4

    Yeah I don't know how we're going to stop Jason Witten as terrible as we are against TEs. We made friggin Evan Moore look like a BEAST yesterday. Also our weak run defense is a problem, Barber/Jones/Choice are going to be the 2nd best combination we've faced all year only to Brown and Williams who also gashed us pretty good.


    This is going to be a shootout. Bolts squeek it out because Rivers > Romo. Chargers 10-3.

    If the defense is going to choke against Eli and his bum foot how do you think they'll fare against Rivers, Gates, and company?

    Bolts 10-3

    Cutler used to put up good fantasy stats. Besides, ESPN has a crush on the Donks too.

    If the Redskins kicker was worth a damn, they'd have beaten the Cowgirls and the Saints. :yes:

    Correction, he's now 5-9 in December after yesterday's loss to the Giants. Rivers is 15-0.

    Although, technically, Romo had a great individual stat game versus the G-Men, and it was his defense and running backs that let him down.

    He was good to have on your fantasy football team last year. That's why ESPN loved him. Now he's not even good for that!!!

    I'm not worried about it, we either come out with a W and improve to 10-3 or we have something to learn from out of a loss. I don't think we will go 13-3, but I won't exactly rule it out. I just think we have another loss due in the next 4 weeks.

    You think Denver's gonna beat Indy?

    12-4 wins the AFC West.

    I still want 13-3, though, because I'd rather have the bye week.

    I don't see us losing another regular season game this year. I'm not saying that can't happen, I just don't ever think we are going to lose.

    If we can get through Dallas and Cincy I think 13-3 is a very real probability. :yes:

    That's not to say Tennesse or Washington won't be tough, but the next two are the biggest bumps in the road.
