VIP Denny the Dog | How ‘bout ‘dem Cowboys? Well, do you really want to know the truth? I don’t think much of them right now. If you’ve been reading this space for any time at all you know I’ve been on the Dallas bandwagon for most of the season.
How ‘bout ‘dem Cowboys? Well, do you really want to know the truth? I don’t think much of them right now.
If you’ve been reading this space for any time at all you know I’ve been on the Dallas bandwagon for most of the season. When Zeke went down, the bandwagon lost a couple of spokes and I had my doubts. When Tyron Smith and Sean Lee went down, the bandwagon lost its wheels if not its horse.
It’s officially a complete disaster now for the Cowboys. So I’m off the bandwagon, at least temporarily. Jerry Jones is reportedly mad as hell at Roger Goodell for the Elliott suspension. I don’t blame him. But it’s not all Roger’s fault. He’s trying to be fair to the entire league, which is really part of his job.
Goodell has now suspended both Tom Brady and Zeke Elliott, two of the most popular players on two of the best teams in the league. He’s shown he isn’t afraid to discipline even the best players on the best teams.
So Robert Kraft and Jones have both been angered. Goodell is an equal opportunity commissioner. If they’re both ticked off he must be doing something right.

Vikings -1 at Lions: The Vikings defense just shut down one of the best offenses in the league. Zimmer’s charges have won six straight. I’m not going to buck the trend. The Vikes made Todd Gurley a non-factor. The Lions don’t have anyone as powerful as Gurley. Stafford is one of the best but the Vikes are going to be doing their best to knock the Thanksgiving stuffing out of him. Lions were giving up a ton of rushing yardage going into the Bears game. The Bears had no issues rushing the ball and I have no doubt Minnesota will have no problems either. VIKINGS
