I love Raheem Morris now. What a guy. Tampa beats up some bottom dwellers and then he calls the Bucs the best team in the NFC. I think he's wrong, it isn't like the Bucs have beat a team that currently holds a winning record, but that guy's got some cajones. Yeah, I said it.
The Cowboys have been an absolute disappointment this year, and it sucks. What's worse is that I can't trust them to take the high draft pick they're bound to get and invest it in more picks or a high talent offensive lineman. Jerry Jones is terrible as a GM, usually picking up guys who sizzle (character issues be damned) and forgetting about the trenches. And because Dez Bryant's doing so well, he'll feel empowered to keep doing stuff like that. I'm gonna be fuckin' pissed if their first pick is a back, or a corner, or another weapon for Romo to throw to instead of a lineman to shield him from guys like Boley.
I know the Raiders have been the whipping boys in the NFL, but they're actually an ok team this year. Seriously. If SeaBass stops shanking kicks against Arizona, then they're 4-3 and a half game behind the Chiefs. If they had an actual QB, or at least a playcaller that can make their guys look good, and this would be another inexplicably good team scrapping out wins in the AFC making us go, "What the hell is going on this year?"
Fact of the matter is, they have useful skill position players. The O-Line is statistically ok (too many sacks, but average in QB hits and the Raiders can run the ball). The defense has been ok, if uninspiring. Unfortunately, their collection of journeyman QBs won't scare anyone, and Al Davis' overinvolvement will keep any coach worth his salt from ever coaching for Oakland to make anything out of the talent they've managed to stockpile.
