only a MORON would think about taking Dallas.....especially knowing about Romo's sitn.   I called Wash to cover last week and they did.    and I loooovvveeee  Dallas.  But I'm honest about my sorry azzz overated team....but they are my team.    Spydaweb has been rite the past 4 years...I can't deny it.  I expect Philly to beat the boys by at LEAST 2 touchdowns.  u can BET THE HOUSE on this one... Philly -7  LOCK OF DA damn WEEK

If Romo doesn't play does that nullify the curse? I would love to see Romo's face if that Dallas squad somehow wins in Dec when he sits. Has Dallas tried sitting Romo in December  befor? Lol maybe it's the new strategy in Dallas. They just stop protecting Romo in Dec until he gets taken out and then try to save the season with a last minute win.Sounds crazy but hey its gotta work better then what they've been doing,
 I'm actually surprised that Philly isn't given more points, and it throws me off a little bit. Does 7 seem a little like bait? Should they not be given more like 10.5 because Romo is out? or is it that this is an old div rival game and therefor will be a close one? Will Dallas O still produce with no Romo, and will this mean lots of running? If Dallas runs lots will Philly expect it and how will they defend it? And what to expect from that Philly D?
Personally I think the real key is Foles. He seems to be a Great QB in the making (last evidence is his bounce back game last week) and great QBs find ways to win big matchups. I don't think that Foles will let his team down when they need him most. This kid is for real.
 Think Philly wins but the line seems off and I'd like to know if there is a secret I am not aware of or if I'm mistaken and the line is correct.

I cant get to the window fast enough to bet the cowgirls, classic overeaction..+7 at home division rival? ohh yes eaglets put up a 50 spot in a prime time stand alone game still fresh in every ones mind. dallas has always been a good dog, never a favorite. if cassell can put a 50 spot on birds with matt asiata and old man greg jennings i see no reason dez, witten, demarco can do the same.

I dont think you all have been listening to the tv. ROMO HAS NOT BEEN RULED OUT. GARRETT WILL MAKE A DECISION ON GAME DAY. IF HE IS OUT THERE ARE OPTIONS TO WHO WILL BE THE STARTER. DAVID CARR, JOHN SKELTON, TYLER THIGPEN, ALL GOT WORKEDOUT BY DALLAS ON TUESDAY. I want to know what the big deal is about philly. The past few games the teams beat themselves. Not that soft behind defense that they have. Lets look at their winnings..   Lets start at nov. 3

Raiders.. REALLY!? 

Greenbay  No Rogers and the backup gave them a HELL. Alot of injuries on that greenbay team

Redskins.. Same as the Raiders at this point.. 

Cardinals. Ok a quality win.

Detroit.. Lol Detroit moved the ball too easily against them. The turnovers in the snow against a turf team. Put that game in detroit and it would have been a blow out. I cant call this a quality win bc detroit is horrible.. 

Vikings.. Beat their behind.. Philly was brought back to earth.. At the time a solid defense that got their running game going..

Bears. Bad news bears.. nothing more to say.. 

1 quality win against a team thats going to see the post season.. Dallas is going to run the air out of the ball and when they do that it sets dez up for the play action. Philly defense is garbage against the run. Especially when a team has a good running back.

Eagles fans better hope romo doesnt play. if he starts you will see the fastest line drop in nfl betting this season. GIve me the cowboys and the ml and watch them  the eagles.. 

dallas wins by 3

gl everyone.

Yup. Public is being set up. Romo may play. Dallas more dangerous as a dog.

Seeing how romo was not even sitting in on the team meetings on Wednesday tells me all I need to know about the situation. Romo will NOT play.  Still not touching this game, but I will be rooting for the cowgirls to pull off he upset.

Romo is not playing. Coach said no decision yet to keep the Eagles guessing. he is definately out.

I can't believe nobody is talking about Lee not playing. That was the key to the game.

Eagles by 10.

Let's go Cowboys!!!!! Betting the farm on Eagles + over... we need big changes in Big D, winning will only hurt in long run... Sit it out Romo if you're in pain. Defense is so weak, you not throwing any picks still won't win this game. Lee is the man, and he's out, so no chance for my 'boys...

Hmmmmm, never thought of that....... I had my "Divisional Trifecta" prophecy all locked and loaded, but now that Romo's out and the Cowboys are 7 point underdogs at home? Does Kyle Orton/Jon Kitna/Whoever have enough in 'em to win/cover? Is the public being set up to bet the house on Philly? Will Batman escape The Riddler in time to save Gotham City???

I don't know, but I'm smelling a rat...... My guess would be Philly wins/Cowgirls cover, but we shall see.......

Good Luck All!!!!!!!

Quad - Not sure if you saw my post last week responding to your post on the Philly/Chicago game.  I'm not bragging but I did go 5-1 last week and (4-0) previous week.  I went big on Philly (1/2) and Game against the Bears for easy wins.  I don't know if you read my post but I mentioned which way I was going on this Philly/Dallas game in that post to you.  I wonder who saw which way I was going for this game?  I still stand by my pick for this game posted last Sunday.

Has everyone forgot the phrase: On any given Sunday?
Locks are for those that don't watch the NFL..
I see this game as a playoff intense game.  Both side are gonna pull out all their best efforts.  The team that gets the breaks, calls, turnovers,  or, magic plays will come out the victor.  Take the points and enjoy the action cause everybody is waiting on Sunday night!

Too bad the Eagles can't carry over some of the 50+ points from last week into this win-or-go home showdown. I think Dallas will cover the 7 points WITH or WITHOUT Romo. I don't have a lot to justify my reasoning other than Dallas already went into Lincoln Financial and pretty much dominated Nick Foles and Chip Ryan's offense. Obviously the Eagles have looked like a much better team since that game, but I don't think they should be laying 7 points to anyone on the road (as proven by their loss vs Minnesota just 2 weeks ago). I think the Cowboys will make the Eagles earn the NFC East Championship. Plus, I think this Romo injury could be a blessing in disguise. It will force Dallas to be more balanced, which should help give one of the unsung heroes of this team, DeMarco Murray, more touches. The cowboys offensive line has been one of the major bright spots on this team, and aside from Trent Cole, that Eagles front 7 is about as worrisome as a cloudy day. If Dallas can run the ball effectively, that will help keep that explosive Chip Kelly offense on the sideline and out of rhythm. Of all the teams we follow, we know Dallas has always been one of the more pass-happy teams (evidenced by their 2nd half melt-downs vs Green Bay and Washington). 

I see this being a hard fought game that ends with a kneel down in the final minute. 

Good luck and happy new year.

Yeah, Cowboys, I'm on it too - - Sammy Ace brings up an excellent point. With Romo out, that's really going to open up the running game and the screens which is what

STUPID A## GARRETT SHOULD'VE BEEN DOING IN THE FIRST FU##ING PLACE!!!!!!!!!!

But, I digress......

{I see this being a hard fought game that ends with a kneel down in the final minute}

I see that too - which way does it fall? With a TD I do not care.....

Good Luck All!!!!!!!!

I think Philly offense will put up too many points on Dallas' run game here.
