Week 14 NFL Thread

    Cowboys sign S Tony Parrish, 32, formerly of the 49ers. If he can play worth anything (and I think he can, I think Nolan just wanted to get rid of him in SF), he's an upgrade over what Dallas has now.

    If the Cowboys shore up their FS spot, their biggest weaknesses become: (1) Rushing the opposing quarterback and (2) Pass defense by their SS, Roy Williams. The pass rush can be aided by blitzing, but what is really needed is for the young DL to step up their games. Roy Williams is so good against the run that you have to live with his below-average coverage skills.

    The O-line, long a problem for the 'Boys, has come together well. If the Cowboys can generate even a slightly-above-average pass rush (and, of course, barring major injuries), they are going to be a force in the playoffs. I'm not saying they're going to the Super Bowl, but if Parrish works out they will have as few or fewer weaknesses than the other NFC contenders.

    Then again, Romo could suddenly realize he's in his first year as a starter and we could see more of his first half against the Giants . . .


    BTW, thank God there's an NFL game tonight, even if it's Browns-Steelers. I'm jonesing bad for some football.

    I think Parrish is a good move. Heck, he's just happy to be out of San Fran and playing for a "contender."

    If Tommie Harris is out for the season, that could be the single most devastating injury of the year for any contender.

    I read the same story in the Trib today. It's a hamstring injury. He'll play in the postseason. Mark it down.

    Well, with the Bears' soft-as-Cottonelle schedule down the stretch, I know they will :D
