I just realized why it is below zero here in western New York. The Bill's made the playoffs after 17 years and hell has frozen over.

Yup, We felt some affects all the way down here in North Texas. The Dallas Cowboys didn't make the playoffs. Not a surprise though.

Crazy weather pattern, for sure, when Tx, La, all the gulf states including Florida.. and up the east coast, have all gotten snow before southern Kentucky.

My Cowboys need to shore up at LB and in the secondary. They'll be back! Then get rid of Dez Bryant!

I have been a long time fan of the Cowboys. Iíve witnessed the ups and downs of the franchise..
The problem with the team seems to be at the management level. Especially recruitment,and coaching staff.

They just canít seem to be able to put together a winning package. The entertainment is still there, The Billion dollar Stadium is full for every home game. However,I have a feeling that Hell will freeze over before we win another Super Bowl.

I agree Glenn. It's a shame that they have a lunatic at the top of the food chain in Dallas. I too, have been a fan for a long time...about 40 years or more.

Football is a different game since players started bouncing around the league. There is enough parity that coaching and continuity are priceless, in terms of separating yourself from the pack. You have to have talent too, but....

Jones has brought in talent at times but always has a big deficiency somewhere.

I think they are fundamentally good now and built for some good years ahead.

My glass is still half full.

Its 7 here at the moment. 12 inches of snow on the ground, but at least the 40+ MPH winds have stopped. Flew up to Rutland, Vermont yesterday and it was -23 F.

I guess Winter is here. Inside shooting for a while. At least I have a 100 yard indoor High Power range available.

Mike,I didn't want to say it. The man with the money ran off,the best Coach the franchise ever had, back in the 90's. You know the one.

My glass has been below half full, since then.

The Bills can go back home to the Cold,and watch the playoffs.

With the knees and the whole adversarial attitudes In professional football today, I feel hell's freezing over is a pleasant thing. We have found better entertainment this season. We don't watch football.
There is still Benchrest Central and indoor rim fire.

Francis. I'm right there with you as far as not watching football or any pro sport for that matter. I'd rather watch a high school football game. At least the kids play for the love of the game. and not for the love of the almighty dollar.
