i dont think anyone honestly knows what our weak links will be.

The fans may end up being our team's weakest link this season.

So as we speak your brain doesn't look at our roster and go Hovan, Sims, and whatever bag of rocks we have on the roster is a weakness? Seriously, I know that "we don't know until they play" line makes you feel smart but if that is your position, then leave, come back when the seaosn is over and only post on what has happened since you lack the will and/or ability to make intelligent speculation.

All posts are opinions in case you are too stupid to figure that out on your own without me saying it over and over.

we had 4 games last year where we allowed a 100 yard rusher.  4.  sorry if im not sold on run D being a weakness.

........... intelligent speculation.

Isn't that a conflict of terms? I've never met a truly intelligent person who speculated. They have always chosen to observe.

I can't believe I'm agreeing with Dal again, but our front four is way suspect.  Wilks is probably the best we know of and he's a relative cast off.  Mind you he has the ability to be versitile and I thought had better days inside than out.  But that's it....Any team can gear up and stop the run.  But can we get some freaking pressure is my question...

Without Carl Nix it feels like our running game just took a death blow to the face!

I don't think that Cowboys game is all that important.   If they lose it, big whoop - that's expected.   They have a new head coach who is basically clueless.   It looks like the Glazers are going to give him every chance no matter what happens this year.   They hired the guy because he listens to the same music as Jermaine Phillips.   He'll still be listening to that same music whether the Bucs win or lose opening day.   Raw could lose every single game (and may), and it wouldn't surprise many people.   Raw really isn't under that much pressure to win this one, so this game is just another game.   Pretty much every single game last year was bigger than this one.   If they were to somehow win the game, yes, it would be a big win.  But if they lose it, it won't be that big a deal.   That's the definition of a game that is not that big.   There has to be strong negative repercussions from a loss for the game to be deemed "important".

he had less sacks, tackles, deflections and heck, interceptions than adams...so how is he the best we know of?

The game reminds me a lot of the 1997(?) opener with the 49ers where the Bucs pulled off a shocker and beat SF. It signaled the start of the Bucs as a good team and the demise of the "Yucks" sending Bucco Bruce to a watery grave.

Not only did we beat the 9ers, but we beat em up. Loved it. An equally impressive needs to be sent vs the Boyz.

 I thought Lovie said he wanted quickness & speed, even at the QB position?

Not only the last 4, but many other games as well.   But yes, all of the last 4 games of last year were more important than this Cowboys game.   To say it's the most important game in years is a joke.

As much as I try to ignore it, your endless babble drives me nutz. It used to be comical, now its just plain annoying.

Remember that Adams was a full time starter while Wilkerson was just a third down pass rush specialist.

Wilkerson played a mere fraction of the snaps that Adams did last year and had 5 sacks verses Adams 6.5 and many of Wilkerson's sacks were from the interior lineman position.

Right now, the Cowboys are a much stronger team than are the Bucs. While I hope the Bucs will win their home/season opener, I doubt they will. Its going to be a looooooooooooong year...
