    As a Cowboys fan . . . I just wanted to thank you for suspending Antonio Gates for our week 1 game.

    Its been a few years since we've won our opener, so this will be a nice change!

    Well these guys in the league just think they can run the nfl and their owners. Time for the owners to take a stand. This is a big blow for them, but i'm sure the chargers will prevail and overcome this. He will be in the lineup this year.

    Yeah, he won't be there. But we still have many weapons plus an upraded defense. We'll win it at home. Below is the statement from the Chargers.

    The man is a damn good player, If they won't pay him more than 380k this year they should atleast add some incentives to his contract this year.

    Perform = get paid

    Don't perform = 380k




    Hell I would love to see all players in the NFL with contracts like this personally

    If we don't allow you to establish a run game, this one will be over early

    There still is the slight chance he might play.

    We don't NEED A. Gates to win. It's not like our whole offense is built around him. We have great TE's in Ryan Krause, and Justin Peele who runs near perfect routes...complimented by great hands. We'll be fine with out him for one game. We still have LT...and if you didn't see him agains the Rams...you should watch out.

    LT is as fast as he's ever been. Watch out Dallas.

    I agree. We have more than enough weapons. Ryan Krause and Justin Peele will fill in nicely. :good:
