While others are eagerly anticipating the decision of whether or not the Miami Dolphins will sign Jay Cutler to a contract (who knew Jay Cutler would be wanted by anyone) for "starter money" as he puts it, I thought I'd find a way to share some really important Dallas Cowboys news with you.

NFL: 10 Questions Worth Asking Heading into Week 6

Now is the time of year that the great illusion of the NFL starts to rear its ugly yet colorful head. It's the illusion which, given the wealth of "information" provided to us on a weekly basis, makes us think that we are somehow, actually, "informed". 

That information is skewed, slanted, and jaded.  The truth of the matter is that records aren't telling the whole story, good teams are hiding a lot of flaws, and questions continue to linger with teams that many prognosticators picked to be widely successful heading into the season. 

It's time to answer 10 intriguing questions heading into Week 6:

Still Not Sold on These Broncos

I usually follow a 'Say it Out Loud' policy before making big decisions in my life.  That same policy goes for the tendency to have a knee jerk reaction when the unexpected or hard to explain happens in sports.

Edwrads' Meltdown and League Coaching Struggles should be a cautionary tale to Eagles Fans

It wasn't that long ago that Trent Edwards was the toast of the league. He had a 98.8 passer rating, completing 69.7 percent of his passes for 1,209 yards, five touchdowns and two interceptions. He was a rising star who was supposed to be the quarterback steal of the draft, an afterthought behind Jamarcus Russell, Brady Quinn, John Beck, and yes Kevin Kolb. To be more specific those sentiments were related back in October when the Bills were 5-1. Now the Bills (5-5) have dropped their last 4 games and Edwards has been the main culprit, having thrown eight interceptions to go along with two fumbles and a safety. His confidence is eroding quickly along with the trust his coaching staff has in his abilities to win games right now...or was their some other reason the Bills ran three straight times with the wind against them to set up that last field goal attempt against the Browns. Edwards admitted himself, "You start seeing things you're not really seeing, and doing things you're notnormally used to doing". And so it goes with another NFL team struggling to find consistency at the most important premiere position on your team...Quaterback.

So with that in mind Eagles Fans, are you ready to give up on the talented Mr. Donovan Mcnabb? Why am I even asking that question, of course you are. You never appreciated him to begin with. Five time Pro Bowl selection, 2000 NFL runner up, 2004 NFC offensive player of the year, 179 touchdowns thrown compared to 82 interceptions. Eagles fans, do you even know that Donovan is the least intercepted quaterback in league history all while passing to the likes of Greg Lewis, Reggie Brown, and "I'd like to thank my hands" Freddie Mitchell. But hey Kevin Kolb is waiting in the backgrounds so why not give him a shot. He is the obvious answer to cure the Eagles troubles and lead them to glory in perhaps the toughest division in football. I'm sure that given adequate grooming he will surpass all that Donovan has accomplished and prove to be a much better quarterback competition against the likes of  Tony Romo and Eli Manning, both of whom haven't even hit their prime yet. Does that logic sound reasonable?

Or what about the notion to get rid of Andy Reid? That would sound reasonable if we were talkikng about Reid the GM who has failed to provide Mcnabb with a talented receiver to throw to either via the draft or free agency since T.O. left. And he has failed to see that Donovan's abilities as a running quarterback, particularly since his latest knee surgery, have eroded and the need for a dominant, healthy, everydown running back (No offense to Brian Westbrook) is crucial to protecting his aging star. If you want to get rid of that man I understand. But do you know that no other franchise since 1999 has been to more divisional playoff round appearances (6) and only Bill Belichick's New England Patriots have advanced to more conference championship game appearances (5) than Philadelphia (with 4).  Just how are you going to replace that?  I'm a Cowboys fan and I must say that the hiring of Wade Philips over Bill Parcells was troubling, considering also that this team now lacks Bill's toughness and accountability.  And last year's offensive guru Jason Garrett does little to instill confidence that he will have the answers to what ails the team now, especially with his offense struggling.  Norv Turner was supposed to be an offensive genius that would elevate a team once led by the "conservative" Marty Schottenheimer and the Chargers will soon be eliminated.  This league is about finding the right quaterback, and maybe more importantly finding the right coach (as seen by Bill Belichick's Patriots) and the two don't come along very often.  My advice to Eagle's fans is to appreciate the now because your other options don't look nearly as good.
