Isn’t it time for the Dallas Cowboys to start thinking about a new head coach?

Happy Days

This might be better posted as a second question, but how good does it feel to be Green Bay Packers quarterback Matt Flynn tonight? Flynn left the Packers after 2011 to become the starting quarterback in Seattle. Lost the job to rookie Russell Wilson. Was sent to Oakland to be the starting quarterback, but ended up getting released by them. And now, he has engineered one of the biggest comebacks in NFL history with a 37-36 victory in Dallas, over the Cowboys, on Sunday.

Quote of the Weekend

“All the glory goes to God… and the offensive line.”—St. Louis Rams back up quarterback Kellen Clemens after throwing two touchdown passes to lead the Rams to a 27-16 victory over the New Orleans Saints on Sunday.

Prep Football

Rosemead’s 16 touchdown passes in 2013 equaled a decade high set by former Panthers quarterback Angel Alejandre. This season sophomore Steven Nava fired 13 scoring passes, while freshman Patrick Ah-hing added three in early season duty.
