Get Your Popcorn Ready

The Cowboys enter Sunday nights match up with the Green Bay Packers at 2-0.  Monday night's game provided many electrifying moments. On the positive side T.O's long TD grab, and Felix Jones' kick off return, on the negative side Romo's fumble that the Eagle's recovered for a touchdown and DeSean Jackson's long "almost" touchdown in which he caught the ball and ran all the way to the goal line and threw the ball down before crossing the goal line.  Unfortunately the play was ruled dead and the Eagles capitalized when Westbrook punched it in from a yard out.  If you thought the Cowboy/Eagle game was good, be in your seats early for the Cowboy/Packer game.

The Cowboys travel to Mr. Rodger's Neighborhood AKA Lambeau Field to take on the explosive Green Bay Packers.  Rodgers has made Ted Thompson look very good to this point.  The Pack may have the best group of receivers in the league with Driver, Jennings, Jones, and Neslon.  Look for Dallas to struggle matching up with their wide receiver sets as they struggled with the reserve wide outs from Philly.  It will be imperative for Dallas' front 7 to get pressure on Rodgers and not let him out of the pocket. 

Dallas' recieving corp versus the secondary of Green Bay is also intriguing.  Will Al Harris and Charles Woodson be able to shut down T.O.?  Will Witten be able to exploit the weak cover safties of the Packers?  Will Felix Jones present matchup problems in the passing game? 

As we all remember last year when Favre went out injured Rodgers tore up the Dallas Defense.  If there is a repeat performance of that the Cowboys may be in for a long Sunday night.  If Green Bay scores at will this team may start to be known as the _allas Cowboys!  Let's hope the D shows up!
