Jerry Jones threatens to sue Atlanta Falcons after Sunday blowout

Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones has been threatening to sue the NFL, and some of its fellow owners, over contract negotiations with NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell.

On Sunday, Jones stated that he also plans to sue the Atlanta Falcons for beating his Cowboys 27-7 in their Week 10 contest.

His feud with Goodell stems from Jones’s anger over the commissioner’s suspending of Ezekiel Elliott, the Cowboys’ star running back, who was accused of domestic violence by his former girlfriend. Goodell sentenced Elliott to a six-game suspension, even though no charges were filed in the case, and Sunday was the first game that the Cowboys were without their star runner.

In Elliott’s absence, Dallas managed just 233 total yards, as the Falcons sacked Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott eight different times.

Following the game, Jones told the Daly Dose of his plans to file a suit against the Falcons franchise.

“It was unfair what they did to us on Sunday.” Jones ranted. ” They knew that we didn’t have Zeke in that backfield, and they took advantage of us. The Falcons are an NFL bully, and they picked on us on Sunday, because we are smaller and weaker.”

“It’s the same thing with the NFL.” he continued. “They like to bully us, because we are a small market franchise, just trying to carve out our place in a very competitive league. So I am going to sue the Falcons. I am going to sue the NFL. I am going to sue Johnny Walker Black for this glass being empty, and I am going to sue the Daly Dose if you tell anyone about this conversation.”

 

Bandwagon NFL fan feeling disoriented after confusing start to the season

A 38-year-old man in Southern California is feeling very bewildered after a rollercoaster start to the NFL season.

Lewis Meyer, a Los Angeles native, and admitted front runner fan, says that he is suffering from a feeling of disorientation about which NFL team to pretend to cheer for.

“Usually it is pretty simple.” stated Meyer. “I pick one of the favorites and go buy a t-shirt or two and get real vocal at work about my rooting interest, but this year has been tough. The Cowboys are up and down, the Patriots don’t play any defense, and the Packers look terrible without Aaron Rodgers.”

Is there a temptation to just cheer for one of the teams from his hometown?

“That’s when you know things are crazy.” Meyer countered. “The Rams actually look like they could be a contender, but I haven’t cheered for them since they were the “Greatest Show on Turf”, and when they lost that Super Bowl, it really hurt me. I vowed then and there, that I would not root for them again, unless I really knew they had a chance to win something. I have been a Raiders fan before but they are struggling, and the 49ers are terrible.”

The Chargers seem to be heating up, after winning two games in a row.

“I’m not falling for that again.” he responded. “They have hurt me so many times. It is just a matter of time before they do it again.”

“I had an aunt once who lived in Pennsylvania. Maybe I could pretend to be an Eagles fan until something better comes along.” he continued. “It’s a tough time to be true fan, right now.”

The 2017 Daly Dose NFL Preview: The NFC East

NFC East

The NFC East has a rich history of teams that have won titles. The Dallas Cowboys have won five titles. The New York Giants have won four. The Washington Redskins have won three Super Bowls. The Philadelphia Eagles are also in the NFC East.

NFC-East

1. Dallas Cowboys

Predicted finish: 10-6

After multiple seasons of mediocrity, the Cowboys broke through with a 13-3 record, behind their rookie backfield tandem of QB Dak Prescott, and RB Ezekiel Elliott. The schedule is going to be significantly tougher in 2017, and the Cowboys lost some people on both sides of the ball, but they should still be in the thick of the division race.  Can Prescott avoid a sophomore slump? Can the defense prove that last season wasn’t a fluke? Can Elliott avoid getting arrested? Stay tuned!

2. New York Giants

Predicted finish: 9-7

The Giants are in desperation mode, trying to win one more title with quarterback Eli Manning. They have signed WR Brandon Marshall to pair with Odell Beckham Jr. Tight end Evan Engram was drafted out of Ole Miss with their top draft pick. The defense should remain a top-10 unit behind a nasty defensive line. Unfortunately the offensive line remains a weakness, and Eli Manning seems to be suffering from mid-life color blindness.

3. Philadelphia Eagles

Predicted finish: 8-8

The Eagles are doing some very good things, as they are doing their best to surround their young quarterback Carson Wentz with some help. They signed WRs Alshon Jeffrey, and Torrey Smith, and looked to get tougher on defense. They probably can’t contend for a playoff spot, but they are getting better, and at least they didn’t screw things up. And for the Eagles, that’s pretty darn good.

4. Washington Redskins

Predicted finish: 7-9

Washington seems to have taken the title of most dysfunctional NFL franchise, as they fired their general manager abruptly, and failed to get QB Kirk Cousins signed to a long-term deal. They did sign WR Terrell Pryor away from the Browns, and upon witnessing how this team operates, he stated that he felt like he was right back in Cleveland.
