#1 Dallas Cowboys Skip: “The Dallas Cowboys Will Win the NFC East”

Undisputed On FS1

"I still believe the Dallas Cowboys will win the NFC East by default... 9-7, I think that's going to be the magic record." Skip Bayless lays out how his Cowboys will win the division

Cowherd: 'Cowboys are innately dysfunctional'

The Dallas Cowboys now have some momentum after their big, 27-20 win over the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday night, but they still have quite a road ahead of them. There are many analysts such as FOX Sports' Colin Cowherd who still aren't sold on Dallas, and aren't very confident in them winning the back half of their schedule.

The Cowboys have seemed like a mess at some points this season, and have attracted their fair share of criticism over the past year for a multitude of reasons. From releasing Dez Bryant, to bad coaching decisions, to verbally guaranteeing Dak Prescott an extension, the Cowboys have seemed pretty dysfunctional from the outside, and Cowherd says it just comes with the territory of being a big franchise.

"I don't think they need an overhaul, and I don't think they are team I trust down the stretch," said Cowherd. "I do think, however, there is some innate ... I think they are innately dysfunctional."

Cowherd isn't necessarily saying that the Cowboys coaches and owners are incompetent, he's saying that it's hard to run an organization that's so big. From all of the money to all of the power — too many powerful people connected to the franchise from agents to power brokers, it always, at some level, will make it hard to operate. The bigger the organization, the more dysfunction you have.

Sitting in second place in the NFC East at 4-5, the Cowboys still have three more divisional games left on the docket, and may have to win all of them if they want to make the postseason. The Cowboys have played inconsistently on both sides of the ball, and teams like that usually don't find success in the playoffs. This team still has time to get it together however, and we will learn a lot about their potential over the next couple of weeks.

Their next divisional game comes on Thanksgiving, when the Cowboys get a rematch with the Washington Redskins at home. The Redskins already have a two-game lead over the Cowboys, which means Dallas has to win just to break even with them, but that matchup won't be as important if the Redskins win and the Cowboys lose this upcoming Sunday.

Dallas heads back on the road to take on the Atlanta Falcons, who just lost to the Cleveland Browns by double digits. The Falcons are favored however, and a big reason is because Dallas is just 1-4 on the road this season. Matt Ryan is also one of the best quarterbacks in the league, and it's hard to win on the road when playing a good quarterback. It's a perfect opportunity to prove that this is a new chapter for the Cowboys however, and a win on Sunday would be huge.

#2 Spider-Man – Home


Spider-Man updated their cover photo.



Of course, it's now one of his favorite parts.

Director Sam Raimi, known for Spider-Man, Spider-Man 2, and Spider-Man 3, told THR that although he loves it now, he originally thought Stan Lee having a cameo in Spider-Man was not a good idea.

"I got the job for Spider-Man in 1999," Raimi said. "And [Marvel head] Avi Arad said, 'I want you to put Stan in the movie.' And I was like, 'No. I know Stan, and he can't act.' And Avi was, 'I want him in the movie. We did it for X-Men, we're doing it here.' Now imagine you're a minor director in England doing Macbeth and you're told, 'Put the writer in the play.' It sounds absurd. 'Fine, you want Shakespeare in the play, I'll put Shakespeare in the play.' Now it's one of my favorite parts in the movie."

Raimi's relationship with Lee began in the early 90's when Lee called Raimi and said he liked Darkman. Lee took him out to lunch and said they should work together on something. The two ended up writing treatments together for a Thor movie, which they pitched to Fox.

"[They said] Absolutely no. Comic books don't make good movies," Raimi said. "This was in 1991."

Spyro Reignited Trilogy Review Roundup

Re-light my fire.


$39.75 on Amazon

Spyro the Dragon was one of the biggest gaming mascots of the '90s, and he's responsible for many people's nostalgia for that era of gaming. Now he's back in the Reignited Trilogy on PS4 and Xbox One.

The Reignited Trilogy includes remastered versions of the first three Spyro games: Spyro the DragonSpyro 2: Ripto's Rage! (also known as Gateway to Glimmer in Europe and Australia), and Year of the Dragon. The purple dragon's voice actor from that trilogy, Tom Kenny, has returned, while Stewart Copeland's iconic soundtrack has been revamped. But does all this make for a good remaster?

GameSpot's Spyro Reignited Trilogy review awarded the games an 8/10, with critic Justin Clark stating the bundle is the "best kind of collection." For a broader look at the game's reception, read a selection of reviews below, or take a wider view of critical opinion on GameSpot sister site Metacritic.

  • Game: Spyro Reignited Trilogy
  • Platforms: PS4, Xbox One
  • Developer / publisher: Toys for Bob / Activision
  • Release date: Out now
  • Price: US $40 / £35 / AU $70

GameSpot -- 8/10

"The Reignited Trilogy is the best kind of collection that not only brings a beloved series up to current visual standards but also proves just how well-built the original titles were. Granted, the originals were done by a little studio called Insomniac, and it's not exactly surprising something that team did is a fine example of the genre. But the Reignited Trilogy's developer, Toys for Bob, deserves major kudos for bringing Insomniac's vision to life in the way we could've only dreamed in 1998." -- Justin Clark [Full review]

IGN -- 8.5/10

"Toys for Bob has done a great job of filling Spyro's first three adventures with such reinvigorated life. Worlds are packed to the brim with more detail, animations are consistently endearing, and the quality of life improvements make revisiting these once analog stick-less platformers a joy to play. They're definitely easier thanks to some of those changes, but no less charming to play. It's great to see Spyro's return treated with such love and care, and I hope renewed interest in his past can light the way for his future." -- Jonathon Dornbush [Full review]

Eurogamer -- No score

"If you want a blast from the past, Spyro Reignited Trilogy will certainly stoke the fires of nostalgia. Thanks to its charming redesign and smooth controls, exploring Spyro's world is a rather magical experience for returning players, while its soft and welcoming aesthetics could make this a hit with a new generation of youngsters. And, importantly, it feels good to control. Yet once the novelty wears off, I'm left without a burning desire to return--making this an intriguing window into the way we used to play, but one which I won't gaze through repeatedly." -- Emma Kent [Full review]

GamesRadar -- 4/5

"My experience with Spyro Reignited began with apprehension upon noticing that a thing I love has changed, followed by acceptance, followed by excitement to see where these new paths and features would lead. It was not always the journey I expected or remembered, but it's a joyous trip down memory lane well worth taking." -- Sam Prell [Full review]

Game Informer -- 8.5/10

"Given just how different the worlds look in remastered form, I found this trilogy to be more interesting and enjoyable to return to than Crash’s. These games don’t preserve history as well, but that's okay. Having already lived through them, it's fascinating to see how the worlds have been reimagined and differ from the vision I had in my head. If you've never played these games before, I can't recommend them enough. From a historical standpoint, you can clearly see the foundation for Insomnaic's Ratchet & Clank series in each level. As a game, Spyro is a blast to control, and collecting gems is an oddly satisfying thing to do. You'll watch the credits roll on each game before you know what hit you." -- Andrew Reiner [Full review]

Hello Again and Thanks for reading it is I David "IT40" Ellenberger with an update on the status of my lawsuit against Alphabet inc case # 4:20-CV-04877-SBA  and the website and life in general. By now if you regularly visit you may have read this section "author info" or Bio. So I am adding to it with more bio and more info. I originally liked the idea of voting on the internet 20-25 years ago when I first got online with WebTV (does anyone remember that?).

The technology at that time was not advanced enough to easily be able to vote online or watch videos or much else for that matter but I was hooked and look at what we can do now with videos, IOT, and everything else, but I digress. I started about 5 years ago and the user base has been going up steadily ever since. I wanted to be another Facebook, with music and voting and that is all coming together slowly but surely. BTW if you want to help or have any interest please feel free to email me anytime.

Now in my previous Author Info or bio page I made it clear or at least I thought I made it clear, I am personally suing Alphabet inc. in Federal Court for Fraud. I have evidence to prove they are not counting all the pageviews, among other things and defrauding myself and probably millions of other website owners and content creators out of Billions of dollars. So if I wasn't clear or you didn't know it's true I am suing Alphabet inc. in Federal Court for Fraud the case was recently moved from my state of Kentucky to N. California to make it easier for Alphabet inc. to steam roll me or so they think. Needless to say if you are interested and I hope you are you can look the case up online under my name "David Russell Ellenberger" or the case # which is 4:20-CV-04877-SBA.

Now, I want to make it clear to you and everyone that I am not suing Alphabet inc. aka Google for fraud just because I want a million dollars for nothing. I am suing Google for fraud because I think they are committing  a serious crime with worldwide and societal ramifications, it is a  very serious problem.  I am suing Google for fraud because to put it simply the analytics numbers don't add up at least not in my favor or yours, there is something very fishy going on with the Google analytics numbers. Of course Google has an excuse for every one of them but I have reasons and the actual numbers and they don't add up, more about the numbers later.

Companies like Google are making Billions of dollars a year in profits telling us data is the most valuable thing and misleading us and misdirecting the media and the world every chance they can.  Now data is valuable and they are making billions in profits seemingly like magic but there is no magic to it just corruption and lies. One thing Alphabet inc. aka Google is really making their money from and that is advertising dollars and they are putting all of this advertising on the websites other people have created.

Websites that I have created and  websites you have created and websites millions of others around the world have created websites or content. For example Just writing a text is creating content and that's where Google puts the billions in advertising they receive and keeping most of it for themselves. Yes content others have created and yet somehow they are keeping almost all of these billions for themselves and not distributing it equitably to the real workers the true content creators who actually deserve the advertising monies. Google has made it's billions on the backs of you and me. Think about that for a minute, how can they continue to justify this? They Can't, it has to change.

For example if I were to prevail in the current lawsuit just half of the monies or $20 billion put into a basic account and compounded at 5% annually we could realistically employ over 80,000 people at $24,000 a year, indefinitely.  Sounds unbelievable but its true and if we only employed 40,000 people we could pay them approx. $48,000 a year indefinitely. Its all true. Its simply a matter of having the money and the will to do it. Now is 40,000 people a lot well yes it would be a lot of employees but with more money simply put into a trust account we could employ more people

I David Russell Ellenberger through my website am suing Google to try to help right a wrong. A wrong committed by Google that has simply gotten out of hand. Most people may think they can't do anything about it. Nothing can stop Google, the politicians don't care they use all of Googles data to further their own campaigns and line their own pockets while the rest of us keep on creating the content for Google, nothing can be done, this however is not the case, we can do something.

The politicians and Alphabet inc. aka Google have done nothing to help society at large other than organize it so they can keep more money in secret and pay off all their buddies with their fraudulently obtained money. It's gotten so bad that the politicians and others in control won't even talk about it, they ignore it and hope it goes away, they won't even try to stop google because it is helping them too much and maybe they are scared of Google or who knows what they may be thinking. But it looks like fraud and it's coming to an end.

I'm telling you we can do something and I David Russell Ellenberger an average citizen Content Creator am saying to you, I'm not scared of Google because I have nothing left to loose.  I David Russell Ellenberger am telling you there is something you too can do, if nothing else, tell all your friends to come to aka IT40, believe these words and Create your Content.

Further I promise to you and all who read this if we do prevail in the lawsuit against Alphabet Inc. We will use half of any monies we may receive to pay "content creators" a living wage. I pledge to anyone who is reading this, we will use half of any monies we may receive to help those who really do want to work on the internet and create content and tell us what they think. We will use half of any money so you can Get Paid, we want you to get paid for the content you create and get paid everyday and Get Paid to Vote create data and to be able to do this work online and from your home or anywhere in the world you care to be. Because in the words of an ancient scholar Y-O-U are the business Y-O-U are creating all the data, Y-O-U are the content creators and Y-O-U are all that matters.

Now the main thing I want you to take away form this and to know, Alphabet inc. is and has been committing fraud against you, me and everyone who uses the internet. I don't think Google started out to defraud the world it has just degenerated into this endless morass of corruption and fraud and no one seems to care, Well I care and I know you care too.  Sadly Google has been doing this with impunity for years and it is only getting worse. Please don't let them fool you with their lies and obfuscation. Do some research create some content build a website and research the analytics numbers you will find I am right. Google owes you, me and everyone online thousands if not 10's of thousands of dollars for all the data and advertising dollars they have co-opted from you and the rest of the world. So join with me don't use any Google products or file your own lawsuit in federal court against Alphabet inc. I will be glad to help you any way I can and show you how to do it if need be. It will take a sincere effort on your part but it will definitely help your self esteem, society and the world.

Now that's about all I have to say on this subject for now.  I will tell you this if you want more information or you have questions or comments for me, my email is [email protected] Thank you for reading looking and listening and believing in Please tell all your friends about us and don't forget to vote Thumbs up or down and refresh your page when your done. One last Thing, I need all the help I can get I am only 1 person but together and with todays technology we can move mountains and reframe society and our world the way we want it to be. One final note let me tell you about a new website coming to the world called Thank you ttyl
