AA's Prediction:

I really think this game is going to be closer than the spread indicates with the Eagles jumping out to an early lead. I still think the 'Boys will pull it out in the end though....

Cowboys 27 - Eagles 23

Feel free to leave your predictions in the comments and I'll see you a bit later for the live-blog.


Prediction: Kornheiser compares a player to a politician and/or talks about his fantasy football team. I'm almost glad that the power has been out in central Ohio for over 24 hours now.

Kornheiser looks like a duechbag wearing his glasses on PTI. C'mon Tony, your indoors!

You know there's a big hole in the roof at cowboy stadium, right? I think that means that it is outside.

Also, I predict there will be way too much talk about the Cowboys.

I'm picking the Eagles in an upset. Just for the sake of I'm tired of crowning Dallas as the NFC Champions already.

And this is great, Matt Vasgersian got stuck with the Rams/Seahawks this weekend, and Joe Buck got sent to Saints/Broncos. I love this!

I know there's a whole in the stadium, but as you can see with the shadows, they weren't in the sun.

I've got the same number of playoff wins as Romo!

Eagles and Cowboys on Monday Night Football. It doesn't get any better than this.

Seeing as I'm a huge any Eagles fan, I can't make any objective predictions on the score, however I will make a prediction that this year, Romo's annual girlfriend who comes to Texas Stadium to watch him get beat will be Paris Hilton.

"I don't care if they're 11-5 or 11-4." - Steve Young

Really? I'd be concerned if they only played 15 games.

"But as I said, Cowboys/Chargers was OFF THE CHARTS!" - Stuart Scott

I thought that game in 2005 was very good but the Broncos played last week Stu.

Emmitt just said that "one team needs to win tonight."

Thanks for the insight Emmitt.

Did Berman really just say "Mr. Rodgers' Neighborhood" referencing Aaron Rodgers. I know his schtick is to come with goofy nicknames and all, but that one just made me slap my hand to my forehead.

Oh my this speech Emmitt just put up was bad.

ssreporters said...

Emmitt tried, I think to say 3 different things at once and ended up saying nothing. I got lost in his inane ramblings, so I may be off by one or two things that he tried to cover in that speech.

Sorry for the lateness of the post, I was having problems with the visual verification not showing up.

My oh my, I can't stand this segment ESPN has "Love or the game" or whatever this was.

I am tired of ESPN force feeding us the personal lives of players.

Giants are the best team in football, Tom Jackson? You do realize they pummeled the Rams.

Worst anthem for sure!!! Where do they get these people and do they even know what they're singing about - a disgrace. Maybe she's a player's girlfriend.

Hello everyone. I had to sign up for a google account so I could confirm that, indeed, that was one of the worst anthems I've ever heard in my life. I am a professional musician and I really wanted to click away, but I felt like I was watching something momentous. Nice blog you got here.

Kornheiser is an insensitive jerk. How did he get a prime time assignment with ESPN anyway?

He made totally inappropriate comments about Andy Reid's personal situation which had nothing to do with the game, as well as "bonheaded" remarks about Spanish.

He should be dumped asap.
