Press Play Or Rewind ……….

Well the NBA ___ season though not yet in full swing has given us a great deal to contend with and to discuss. Washington Wizards’ rookie point guard John Wall has already set himself apart from the rest of this season’s rookies with a grand entrance by posting a triple double in the team’s first win of the season. And if the player’s exhilirating displays are anything to go by then fans attending the Verizon Center in Washington DC will be in for a treat for much of the season.

The NFL is a win now business; they do not put too much into past accomplishments and the good old days. The following players and coaches are 10 big names that have had some level of success in the NFL that are really staring at crossroads for their season or their career.

If these gentlemen do not have a good October and early November, they are going to be in miserable shape as the season hits the December homestretch.

1) Minnesota Vikings QB Brett Favre – This is a no-brainer for the top spot. Where do I begin with all his problems? The Vikings brought back 22 starters from a team that was 12-4 and lost a three-point overtime NFC Championship Game to the New Orleans Saints. Favre had 33 touchdown passes and seven interceptions in 16 regular season games last year; he has seven interceptions already.

Yesterday, the Cowboys got their first victory of the season against their Texas stepchild, the Houston Texans.

The Cowboys were close to drowning in a sea of expectations that were so out of control, Jerry Jones had trouble dealing.

The Super Bowl is being played in Jerry World (Cowboys Stadium) this season, and Dallas has enough talent for more than a few teams in the NFL, so they were the “logical” choice to make the Super Bowl.

Well, as my pencil-pushing ESPN friend Lee Corso would say, “not so fast, my friend.”

Dallas entered yesterday’s match-up with a record of 0-2. The Texans were riding high at 2-0, coming off of huge victories against a division foe in the Indianapolis Colts and a comeback victory against the Washington Redskins, so their confidence level was Texas-sized.

For any team to start the season 0-2 and for people to celebrate, it would have to be the Dallas Cowboys.

This past Sunday “America’s Team” dropped their third straight game dating back to the end of last season when they were run over by a Minnesota freight train. The Cowboys looked out of balance, out of whack and out of sorts against the Bears as the team struggled to identify themselves.

This game was the Cowboys home opener and they were expected to even their record for the year and come to 1-1. But I guess Cowboys offensive coordinator Jason Garrett and his playbook had other plans because from the looks of things, Garrett forgot about his team’s main strength: The running game.

This past Sunday the Dallas Cowboys faced off against the Washington Redskins to kick off their 2010/2011 National Football League season. Jerry Jones, Tony Romo, Dez Bryant, new $54 million dollar man Miles Austin, and the rest of the Cowboys crew were all there.

But did Cowboys wide receiver Roy Williams bother to show?

Last week, former Cowboys and Hall of Fame wide receiver Michael Irvin said that the Cowboys have no shot at winning the Super Bowl because of Mr. Roy Williams. Irvin said the Cowboys are playing “10 vs. 11” with him on the field because his presence is pretty much non-existent.

Irvin went on to say that once rookie Dez Bryant gets going and replaces Williams in the line-up, he’ll change his pick and choose the Cowboys to win the Super Bowl.

Here is an interesting story written by Kevin Pates that was in today’s Duluth New Tribune.

Duluth New Tribune — WCHA commissioner Bruce McLeod addressed the possible changes last weekend at league coaches meetings in Bloomington, Minn., said Minnesota coach Don Lucia on Monday. The WCHA will start 2010-11 with 12 teams with the addition of Bemidji State and Nebraska-Omaha.

“The strength of the WCHA has been the commitment of member schools, and if Minnesota and Wisconsin were to leave, the league will still be a good, strong league. It will not be a drastic change,” Lucia said. “But right now this is all speculation. Will Penn State add hockey? Will the Big Ten schools want to form their own league? Will they be interested in adding affiliate members?”

Last night the Dallas Cowboys faced off against their hated inter divisional foe, the Washington Redskins.

This was supposed to be the game where Dallas showed everyone that their offensive woes in the preseason was just the product of, well, the preseason and that their offensive line would pull it together even with two starting lineman in the infirmary.

Well, they didn’t prove anything or anyone wrong. Not only did the Cowboys choke on their own misfortunes, but they showed the National Football League the biggest and truest weakness of their team: The offensive line.

Way back when in training camp, offensive linemen Kyle Kosier and Marc Colombo injured their knees and made plenty of Cowboys fans place their hands firmly on the big red panic button. But team owner Jerry Jones said that there was no need for panic, Colombo would be back by the first week and Kosier’s injury was “minor” and the team would maybe seem in the last preseason game.

This past Saturday the Dallas Cowboys put some of their fans on life support with their poor performance against the Texans. The team rushed for a paltry 13 yards, averaging a meager 1.1 yards per carry, and the offensive line showed a few signs of worry when they failed to recognize a few stunts and twists by the Texans defensive line.

I guess Houston was out to prove that the saying “don’t mess with Texas” should be re-written to say “don’t mess with the Texans.”

We learned that Houston takes its preseason play pretty dang serious. Houston’s budding star running back Arian Foster rushed for 118 yards, Matt Schaub’s quarterback rating went north of 90, and the defense looked about as mean as Barry Bonds after a steroid injection.

Saturday the Dallas Cowboys flew back to Texas to face off against the Houston Texans after wrapping training camp in Oxnard, California. Dallas has looked a little less than average in the preseason and Saturday’s game was supposed to be a dress rehearsal for the season opener.

I guess Jerry forgot to tell his ‘Boys that they had a game to play.

The Texans came out and played inspired football and the Cowboys looked, well, uninspired. If anything they were still having California dreams but living a Texan sized nightmare.

Injuries abound for the Dallas Cowboys just like they do for every other NFL team. When the team is hit, it’s up to that team to adjust. Maybe it’s signing another player to add depth or to act as a replacement or the team calls on another player to step-up.
Martellus Bennett, you’re up.

The Dallas Cowboys lost tight end John Phillips to a season ending ACL injury in the first preseason game of the year against the Bengals. Phillips was giving a serious push to replace Bennett as the team’s back-up behind Witten before his devastating injury.
