What is going on in Dallas is a good problem to have I think. Not an easy problem to deal with still. Tony Romo is back. Dak Prescott is in a battle with teammate Ezekiel Elliott for Offensive Rookie of the Year. Two good quarterbacks. One starting spot. There is no perfect way to figure this out. However, my opinion is that you should ride the Prescott Express until he starts showing signs of wear and tear or he just has a couple bad games. Until then, I think putting Romo back in would be a bad idea. Why go away from the hot hand? Still waiting for Jason Garrett to fuck this up but hey, maybe he will figure it out and the Cowboys will go deep in the playoffs to the chagrin of everyone except Cowboys fans.

- No Cleveland Browns watch this Sunday. They already lost Thursday night. I think they should have at least six games a year on Thursday night. Get them out of the way and not plug up the Sunday schedule.
- I would go out on a limb and say we have three pretty big games this week…we could even call them marquee games. The Seahawks-Patriots Sunday nighter is a no-brainer. But Cowboys-Steelers and Falcons-Eagles are also pretty big games in the grand scheme of things. And now that the playoff picture is a thing again, games become slightly more important.
- Right now, on TSN’s guide, 1, 3, 4, and 5 have the Seattle-New England game Sunday night; however, according to their NFL on CTV schedule (which also includes any TSN broadcasts), it only shows TSN1, 3, and 4. At the very least, you should be able to watch it, just don’t be surprised if it doesn’t appear on TSN5 for whatever reason.
- The CFL takes over TSN this weekend with their division semi-finals. This means no Sunday afternoon football on TSN.
- This means there are certain games that might have been picked up on TSN2 normally that most of us will not get (shown in only a few areas). A good example is Minnesota-Washington. Because this game is only available basically in Manitoba, there would have normally been a good chance that TSN2 would have picked this game up nationally. That won’t be the case this week or next.
So we have one college game tonight on TSN2. Then tomorrow the full college slate followed by most of the NFL games on Sunday. Also, for you CFL fans, the playoffs start on Sunday. I will not be in town the first couple days of the upcoming week so there will be no recaps. I might do a bowl projection post on Wednesday but we will see how I am doing with time. Don’t worry, the college football and NFL schedules will be on time as per usual on Thursday and Friday next week. Enjoy the games everyone!
