    Expect The Worst When The Cowboy’s Meet The Raiders Tonight

    I know, I know, I know.  You are probably hoping this game will be the cold smooth tasting beer that chases that bitter cold shot that was 44 to 6 at the hands of the Eagles out of your mouth.  But the truth is, especially if Tuesday's practice was any indication, tonight very well may get ugly.  But for all of you who felt that Wade was soft in past camps, that aforementioned ugly is largely the result of him listening to your pleas for more intensity.  These guy's are tired.  They are sore.  The rookies brains likely feel as though they are going to explode.  Chances are this will be a game filled with mental errors, misreads, bad timing, and poor execution.  Now, I'm not certain on that point, but it would be a mistake to expect otherwise.

    But just because it's probably going to be ugly, doesn't mean there won't be anything worthy of watching.  Rather than looking for a great team effort, look for great individual efforts.  That's what Wade will be looking for.  Watch for those guy's who realize their chances to shine are limited and give this game everything they got, regardless of how little the win actually means.  Watch for those guys competing for the last spot of their perspective position.  There are more battles in this camp than there has been in a long time with the Cowboy's which should generate some fervency from specific players and yield some pretty good results of players who, at least, reach benchwarmer status.  Which is exactly what the Cowboy's organization had in mind when they forgoed the temptation to up for specific players and actually drafted 12 rookies.

    My main concern for tonight is the over-reaction we are likely to see tomorrow if thing's don't happen the way we need them to in the regular season.  Don't be an idiot and lament the miscues of Romo and .  The fact that Roy will likely be shadowed by the highest paid CB in the business, Nnamdi Asomugha, may contribute to their lack of connections.  Don't crucify the rookie LB's who all are converting from different positions played in college.  Take it easy on the rookie QB who spent the vast majority of his career handing the ball off.  And let's definitely not jump off the nearest bridge, should DeCamallis Dallas Cowboy's debut as special team's coach, fall flat because rookies bite on the temptation to move out of their lanes to go directly after the returning ball carrier.

    This football team is a work in progress.  You wouldn't judge an artist by a painting 1/4 of the way finished.  You wouldn't judge an author by a book's rough draft.  You wouldn't judge a president by his first year in office.  So, please, don't judge these Cowboy's by their first game in .

    I am 35, married and a father of 2 boys. I have been a Cowboys fan since Jimmy Johnson took over; not because I had anything against Tom Landry, but because it just so happens I was old enough to start following and understanding football right as that new era began. Since then, I haven't missed games if I could help it.

    In hind sight – you’re spot on bro!

    I am a little disappointed to see 31-10 at the top of the page here, but I liked a little of what I saw from some of the unknown players, though I missed all but five spread out minutes of the game at work.
