Football has been very, very good to us.
In the midst of this losing season, we can console ourselves with this fact-
# of Super Bowl victories since 1985:
1-Chicago, St. Louis, Tampa Bay, Indianapolis, New Orleans, Seattle
2-Washington, Green Bay, Denver, Pittsburgh, Baltimore
3-San Francisco, Dallas, New England
4-New York Giants!!!!!

My quote was in response to the Cowboys and their fans acting like we won the superbowl... I just don't see it. Happy? Yes. Over elated and content? no.
Also, the Cowboys are 1-1 with Romo out against the Giants.
Note: I did not include the two half games he's played against the Giants-- his first start ever when he came in after halftime already down, and in 2010 when he and the Cowboys were ahead at the time he was knocked out of the game.
Who is celebrating like we won the Superbowl? The boys won a hard fought first game of the season against a division rival. That's it. Does it feel good? Of course it does. Are G-men fans smarting? Of course they are. That's just the nature of being a fan.
I was over at the Boys forum. Many are saying the Giants won't make the playoffs based on last night's performance. So, yeah, there are alot of Boys fans talking BS smack. The better team won last night. The Boys won the TOP & they won the battle of the trenches. You win games when you win those 2 catagories. I had a bad day today. Lost $50 on the game & had to wear a Boys shirt at work as per my bet with a Boys fan. Hated doing it, but I manned up & backed it up. Can only hope we win the week 8 rematch so I can get payback on my Cowboy loving friend.
Week 1 is over for us. Let's hope we get on the Win column vs TB.
It sucks for us because it is a division loss to another team that will be in it at the end of the season and we have to wait 10 days till our next game to see if we improve.
