Default Dallas travels here on a short week ... 4-0 almost guarantees a winning record

Just sayin' ... I don't know the stats, but it's gotta be 90%-plus of teams starting 4-0 finish 9-7 or better.

Dallas has given up 54 points in two games ... and travel here on a short week.

Hell yeah. We will be ready to go and half the Cowboy's team will be expecting what ESPN is telling them.

Did they get a new stadium? I could have swore I heard somewhere that they got a new stadium.

Let's show Tony Romo how we do things at altitude. And if anyone knows anyone, it sure would be groovy if Barber had to sit it out...

I can't wait for this game. Not only are we going 4-0 after this game but the media will HAVE to give us respect after spanking their beloved Cowboys. This is when everybody in the media (ESPN, SI, NFLN) gets it that this team is for real and that we are not gonna play the doormat role they so lovingly gave us for no reason at all. Now I am not going to go all Fantasy Land here predict a winning season and playoffs and all that but I will go on to say this is the game when some frickin respect is earned, as Dawkins talks about.

Bah... I prefer being the underdog. No respect, not even from some of the die hard fans. I love it!

As of right now my prediction is 10-6. There is a decent chance that we can win the division at 10-6.

8-5 the rest of the way gets you 11-5 on the season and a guaranteed playoff spot IMO.

Chargers will finish no better than 8-8. Bank on it.

I know a 4-0 start doesn't guarantee you anything. I also know that almost every time the Broncos started 4-0 they went to the Superbowl that year.

The memo states the team hasnt played any real team yet, and the prognosticators will pick big ole Cowboys to whip up on the JV Broncos...

Something like 80% of 3-0 teams make the playoffs? Thought I heard that somewhere on the radio today.

Couldn't find the info, but I do know that only 3 teams have made the playoffs since '90 starting 0 & 3.

We were 3-0 last year. Guess that was a 20% team..


However I don't think this team is going to fade ...that was a shanahan trademark for the last 10 years, and if one thing is different it is that this is not a Shanahan team..

It is a TEAM....all parts pulling in the same direction at the same time. something we haven't seen for a while in Denver.

I know... I know....Captain Obvious makes another brilliant analysis!

Well, at least for now, no one is saying we stink.

I am really rooting for Dallas to win big tonight. It seems almost every time the Cowboys win a game they come out the following week very rusty and sloppy...

Wade Phillips just doesn't know the definition of the word discipline.
