Emmitt Smith calls it a career
I had the pleasure of watching Emmitt play against the Panthers. It was late in his career, and his Cowboys had bottomed out. But it was still a good show. His line opened up huge holes for him and he hit them hard, forcing the defensive backs to make the tackles.
I've historically been a Cowboys hater, but over the years I've gained respect for the franchise, especially now that it's been sufferering quite a bit in recent years.
Speaking of football, what does Belichick and Co. have planned for the Eagles? I hate to be pessimistic, because everyone wants to see a good game, but my gut feeling is this one's going to be ugly. Maybe it's me, but the Eagles weren't that impressive against the Falcons.
I've been wrong before.....
