They for real or all smoke and mirrors ??... been a hot minute since they've put together a team this special.

And Trevon Diggs is an absolute beast.

And if you're not watching that's fine just ease on to the knitting channel or something.

Pretty solid today. The pass rush was wicked, and both backs were getting yards in chunks. It’s really nice to have an offense with some imagination.

Dak is for real!

Tampa is elite? They got washed by the rams and rams got washed by the cardinals.

Like I said not even 1/4 into the season and they haven’t played an elite offense or defense.

As most of my buddies are Cowboys fans, I’ve enjoyed watching them suffer. Not the team, just my buddies. Cowboy fans are hopelessly optimistic and often times delusional. With that being said, this team is legit. They’ve often had the best team in the league on paper only to crap the bed. I don’t think that happens this year. They look really good at all skill positions and the defense is better than I thought they’d be. This could be the year I lose a lot of money and eat a lot of crow. This team just feels different from those disappointing teams of the last 20+ years. Gonna go throw up now.

Parsons and Diggs have been pretty close to amazing. Pair that with the UCLA kid and they have this defense looking better than I ever thought they could. Especially after last year.

I've always like the offense quite a bit. Dak and Moore have them hitting on all cylinders. As long as up front stays somewhat healthy, they are a lot of fun to watch.

Could be that old Jerrah is staying out of the coaches bidnez more and letting the coaches do their jobs. Jones and Joe Biden are about the same mental capacity at this point in their lives and both need handlers to take care of them.

I believe without Pollard and Diggs these games turn out differently. By splitting carries more evenly Elliot is finally getting enough rest to be more effective and defense creating turnovers is equating to points scored in most cases. Not a fan but just calling it like I see it. Dak has improved

The thread wouldn't have been started if they hadn't come out the gates looking like crap?? Heck, The trouncing of the Eagles alone was an early Christmas for me.

My son's enthusiasm for Dallas & being an absolute sports junk nerd like a lot of you has rekindled my former fan that was diminishing due all the NFL idiocy overall, but I'm over it as we're having fun...the boy has finally been giving up some weekend TV time to go shoot birds, so I'm sitting in on his passions. Man, let me tell you, those zealot European soccer league fans make our NFL stands look like it's filled with a bunch of sissies. Those folks are absolute bonkers over a game no where near as cool & fun to watch??

Does anyone else think that Pollard is the best running back they got? Pollard looks like he's running for a paycheck every time he gets the ball. That being said Elliot looked really good yesterday, but its like they are using Pollard to wear down the defense then giving Elliot the ball once they get closer to the red zone. I'm all for it though! I've enjoyed watching them!

I think Pollard is every bit as good a ball carrier as Elliot, not quite as powerful, but more explosive. He’s not as good at blitz pick up as Elliot, though. So he doesn’t get the snaps that Elliot does.

28% of Dak's completions yesterday were for touchdowns. He is playing terrific and even showed he could still run when the pocket collapsed yesterday.

Amari is elite - what concentration to pull that pass in and stay in bounds. It shouldn't hurt when they get Gallop, Lawrence, and Lael back from injury.

Now we are going from just winning the NFC "Least" to probably able to hang in with anyone in the league (including Tampa and Kansas City). Lots of football to play and have to stay healthy but man is this entertaining!
