Cowboys Stadium rocks

I'm sitting here at Cowboys Stadium, awaiting the start of the Panthers-Cowboys Monday night game, and it's pretty remarkable.

The video replay board is stunning, just like you've probably heard. The resolution of it is so good it seems like it's 3-D.

The whole place feels like you could set Bank of America Stadium inside it with little trouble. The closest thing I've been in to this was the Bird's Nest stadium in Beijing (built for the 2008 Olympics). That one was more architecturally significant, but this one seats more folks.

One disappointment: the roof stays closed tonight. And it's an absolutely gorgeous day in Texas -- breezy, sunny, temps in the 70s. Sounds like for all the hullabaloo about the retractable roof that most of the time it's going to end up being a domed stadium. The stadium was open last week for its debut, but that may have been one of the few times it will be for this inaugural season.

Anyway, it's something else -- but the field is still 100 yards long, and it's about to get very full of a lot of desperate men on both sides, determined not to sustain another loss.

It will end in a tie, Faux will say "it is what it is" and the next two weeks we will be subjected to more of his double speak. Jake who???

Can I just hope that Jake and Fox miss the team bus?? We MAY have a chance to win if that happens. MAY...

Panthers are without doubt the biggest losers in the NFL. They could not win playing a high school team and I love it. They have always been overhyped. Dallas 37 Canthers 3

This will be a key game for both teams, but I'm hopeful that the Panthers are going to play great, and if they do, they can win. Go Jake, Smitty and Pep!

Why are all of you hating on jake? So what, he has some horrific games, but at the end of a season he always has more real good games than bad ones (has the 4th most wins of all active QB's)...get off his back

someone needs to tell the panther defense not to play back 12 yards when it is 3rd down and 8 and then wait for them to catch the ball and come to them to be tackled

It was more than bad Jake my friend. No one with the exception of Thomas Davis showed up. Julius Peppers was non existent. Jerry Richardson is paying this guy how much?
