Default Hall of Fame Game

No game day thread for the first game of the offseason? For shame...

Cowboys vs Cardinals (who aren't playing their starters apparently). Last year's game didn't go ahead, because of a dodgy field...

I think the St. Louis Rams had a HoF game as well one year, and that didn't go ahead either for some reason. Seems pointless to me, but it's one step closer to the season I suppose.

I'll watch the first 10 minutes, then remember it's pre-season and turn it off because it's an awful awful product.

A game for the back up, back ups.......nice to watch some football but do they really need to play this game?

It'll no doubt create some roster debate for Cowboys/Cardinals fans but beyond that?............

Jerry Jones' haircut was even more of a shock...

He looked HoF worthy! I wish Kellen Moore could put some zip on the ball like Gabbert did. Interesting to see the stats on the number of HC's (8) and OC's (7) he's had in his 7 year career. Not sure if that shows Gabbert gets people fired, or the disruption it has caused to his progress, but it definitely highlights the inconsistency he's been a part of.

If nothing else it starts the Cowboys season off with a winning mentality. Thought Rod Smith was a pleasant suprise running the ball, Alf Morris had some flashy plays too.

Jerry will be pleased the Cowboys won ahead of his HoF induction too!
