Fisher said he never heard the chants for Goff


“I would submit that Case was not the reason we lost this game today,” Fisher said. “We just didn’t make plays in all three phases. We’ll circle the wagons with the coaches and look at the tape, but I’m pleased with the way Case has fought. As I say consistently, repeatedly, week after week, I’m pleased with Jared’s progress.”

But still not enough to name him the starting quarterback, even though the Rams are now 3-5 and would benefit from providing the future face of their franchise with much-needed game reps.

Keenum has thrown nine touchdowns and 11 interceptions, many of them crucial.

“The thing I’m most happy about is, I can’t believe Dak’s getting these reps,” Jones said. “To see a young guy like him get eight full games, you just Casey Hayward Jersey don’t get to do that in the NFL. Tony had to wait four years to get that kind of experience.”

In the AFC, it’s not so surprising: The New England Patriots are 7-1. In the NFC, however, the Dallas Cowboys have shaken off Tony Romo’s injury to post the same 7-1 record.

Could this be what we see in Houston come February? There’s Chris Watt Jersey a long way to go, but #PulseOfTheNation is asking:

The most likely obstacle for the Patriots, who fought off Tom Brady’s four-game suspension for another strong season, will come from the AFC West, where the Denver Broncos, Kansas City Chiefs and Oakland Raiders are off to encouraging starts.

The Cowboys, who have been led by rookie quarterback Dak Prescott and running back Ezekiel Elliott, play in a difficult division. Each of the four teams is .500 or better.

Does that portend a return to the bench for the dazzling young rookie? It could. The idea that Romo — or pretty much any other quarterback in the world — couldn’t have completed those three touchdown passes Sunday to three wide-open receivers while under no pressure at all — is crazy. Prescott deserves a ton of credit for the way he has handled his situation — far better than any of the veteran backups who failed the Cowboys in 2015, when Dallas was 1-11 without Romo. But the idea that going back to Romo would be some kind of a downgrade or rattle the locker room doesn’t hold water. Not when the rest of the team is performing the way it is around Prescott.

McCloughan will have to make an even tougher call


The simple argument I’ve seen from people in and around the league when it comes to franchise quarterbacks is that if you have to ask whether you have one under center, you don’t. It’s also true that teams simply don’t let franchise quarterbacks leave; the last one to hit the market while playing at a high level was Drew Brees in San Diego, and that was a decade ago.

Sherman had a suggestion for making the Justin Houston Authentic Womens Jersey rules easier to comprehend.

“Make the rulebook a lot less extensive,” he said. “You’ve got a bunch of freaking rocket scientists writing rules, I guess, for a simple game.”

Asked if he’s surprised that he wasn’t fined for his comments on the officiating last week, Sherman said, “Not really. Sometimes the truth is the truth is the truth.”

He also addressed whether his criticism Justin March-Lillard Authentic Womens Jersey of the officiating could be a reason the Seahawks don’t get some of the borderline calls.

“I don’t know. Maybe,” Sherman said. “Perhaps. I don’t know. Cheating is cheating. So if there is bias, then it’s quite the deal, quite petty.”

And finally, ahead of the Week 9 visit from the Buffalo Bills, Sherman was asked what the key is to the Seahawks’ success in Monday night games.

“I have no idea,” he said. “Maybe because they don’t want the refs to control the games in those games.

“Too many people watching in prime time, they can’t make it look that obvious.”

I think it was smart for McCloughan to franchise tag Cousins in 2015 given how little we knew on the outside about his improvement and how likely it was to stick. It’s also true to say that if Washington had no doubts about Cousins’ ability to play at a high level, they would have used the leverage of the franchise tag to lock Cousins up to a long-term deal. Again, teams don’t let franchise quarterbacks leave. Cousins’ cap hit of almost $20 million under last year’s franchise tag is the seventh largest in football; an extension likely would have cost less money on the cap this year.

Dallas Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott throws the ball against Cincinnati Bengals at AT&T Stadium


The evidence is in and it is overwhelming. The Dallas Cowboys would be making a Texas-sized mistake if they pulled Dak Prescott as starter, regardless of Tony Romo’s status. Prescott would just be making make another compelling argument Sunday night. If the NFL’s best rookie to this point engineers a victory over the visiting Philadelphia Eagles, owner Jerry Jones would be downright loco to mess with the best thing to happen to his franchise in a long, long, long time.

The NFC East leaders have responded to the efficient, poised-beyond-his-years youngblood better than any Cowboys fan could have possibly envisioned after the team serendipitously drafted Prescott with a fourth-round pick. The Eagles will bring to town a top-notch defense that is coming off a performance that should prompt all Drew Doughty Authentic Jersey opposing signal-callers to tightly strap on their helmets. By balling out against the Cowboys’ formidable division rival, Prescott, whom the team tried not to draft with a fourth-round pick, would strike another blow for the status quo, even with Dustin Brown Authentic Jersey Romo apparently inching closer to being medically cleared to play following his latest major injury.

As a lifelong Dallas Cowboys fan, Omar Epps tells the First Take crew that he thinks Tony Romo is done as the Cowboys starting QB.

Not only has Prescott clearly shown he’s that Dude of the future, he’s also The Man right now. With how Prescott has bailed out the ‘Boys, what’s left to discuss?

“He’s the present,” ESPN analyst Ryan Clark said on the phone. “He should continue to be the starting quarterback even when Romo returns. He has been a special guy from his first snap in the preseason. You could just see there was something about him.

“It’s exciting. It’s exciting for him, for me,” Wentz told reporters who cover the Cowboys regularly in a conference call Wednesday. “Obviously, [their first matchup is] going to be played up into something. It’s cool to see another young guy like him that.”

Prescott’s individual performance has been equally lit.

He tops all passers with an 82.9 Total Quarterback Rating. Matt Ryan of the Atlanta Falcons is second at 82.0. Prescott attempted 176 passes before he threw an interception. That’s the most pass attempts without an interception to begin an NFL career. Also, only New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady has a higher completion percentage (75.2 to 68.7) than Prescott. Just call him the real Willie Beamen.

“He’s done a really good job throughout the season in maintaining his poise, his confidence in his demeanor, no matter what’s happened,” Pro Bowl center Travis Frederick said Wednesday after practice at the team’s opulent new headquarters in Frisco, Texas.

“You saw [it] against Green Bay. He kinda had that first blunder, that first interception, and never blinked. That definitely gives you confidence in believing in what he can do as a player. But also, it’s fun to watch him grow week to week.”

For Beamen, er, Prescott, this week figures to be his toughest test.
