Trolling The Nation During Cowboys @ Bears: "Looks Like They Scored Big With Prescott And Elliot."

New, comments

Read through what other fans had to say as they watched the Cowboys rookie duo dominate the hapless Bears.

Tim Heitman-USA TODAY Sports

As we've done repeatedly in the past, today we're going to look at what fans of other NFL teams had to say while they were watching the Cowboys beat the Bears on Sunday Night. All quotes below are taken directly from the open game threads from the SB Nation team sites as indicated in front of every comment. Some minor edits have been made to improve the overall legibility of the quotes and to satisfy the site guidelines of our board, but no other changes have been made, no commentary added.

Despite it being a SNL game, overall interest in the game wwas fairly low, which is why the total number of comments below is a little lower than it has been on similar posts in the past.

I've frequently received questions asking why there are never any Cowboys fans in these threads. Two reasons: One, if you are a Cowboys fan and watched the game, you probably remember exactly how you felt during the game - no need for a rehash. Two, if you really want to see what other Cowboys fans said, you can always read through the open threads for the game here on BTB.

Pre-game and First Quarter
Giants Where is the 100 million dollar pass rush? What about the unstoppable offense? It’s just more of the same as the past 5 years.

Browns Let’s see how much Dak Prescott lights it up tonight, so we can further our complaints about the Browns evaluation of QB’s. Am I doing it right?

49ers Rookie QB vs a backup QB tonight. Both will display much more skill than Blaine Gabbert.
by Method24 on Sep 25, 2016 | 8:18 PM
49ers If only Dak was available to us somehow in the draft....Oh wait!
by Germinator on Sep 25, 2016 | 8:19 PM
Redskins One of the great moment of the game is when Aikman was praising Eli that there is no NFL defense in this situation who can defend Eli or something like that, and we intercept the pass.

Bears Hoping we can score at least 10 points
by Bear Guy on Sep 25, 2016 | 8:21 PM
Bears Let's all hope it's over quickly...
by LostInSTL on Sep 25, 2016 | 8:24 PM
Bears Starting at QB for Chicago: An inanimate carbon rod.

Giants Dallas already gouging the bears
by AussieGiant08 on Sep 25, 2016 | 8:35 PM
Bears Good to know we can blitz ineffectively.
by Just Dave on Sep 25, 2016 | 8:35 PM
Bears We tackled the RB within 10 yards of the line of scrimmage! Looking better!
by Silence_Dogood on Sep 25, 2016 | 8:35 PM

Eagles RIP Cole Beasley
by HazyBird on Sep 25, 2016 | 8:37 PM
Browns Cowboys are going to run out of WRs before the 1st quarter at this rate.
by Crawford_T on Sep 25, 2016 | 8:37 PM
Redskins Witten: 83 years young and still going strong!
by Fishslap 33 on Sep 25, 2016 | 8:42 PM
Bears On the bright side, I'm digging the Tecmo Bowl commercials
by Rocinante1 on Sep 25, 2016 | 8:47 PM
Texans Two rookie Qb’s playing with great poise and leading their teams. Meanwhile in Houston…
by Shepdog936 on Sep 25, 2016 | 8:48 PM
(9:45) D.Prescott up the middle for 1 yard, TOUCHDOWN.
Cowboys 7 - Bears 0
Eagles Lol Dallas Passrush
by H2o-34-35-44 on Sep 25, 2016 | 8:51 PM
Bears Well this has been a weekly reminder of how bad the Bears are.
by TacticalPanda on Sep 25, 2016 | 8:53 PM
Browns The QB we could’ve drafted vs. the QB we used to have. Whee!!
by brickfrenzy on Sep 25, 2016 | 8:54 PM
49ers God that Dez knee injury looks painful
by Richard Sherman's Tears on Sep 25, 2016 | 8:56 PM
Bears And we had three 3rd round picks before the Cowboys took Dak? Ouch.
by brose on Sep 25, 2016 | 8:58 PM
Seahawks Cowboys with Prescott aren't bad.
by King of the North on Sep 25, 2016 | 8:59 PM
Bears I feel like crying.
by Fencik45 on Sep 25, 2016 | 8:59 PM
Patriots Dak looks like a taller Russell Wilson.
by Mindkrak on Sep 25, 2016 | 8:59 PM
Texans I have a Klondike bar for anyone who can disable Collinsworth's mic.
by Capt Ron on Sep 25, 2016 | 9:01 PM
Bears Can we get Rod Marinelli back?
by Silence_Dogood on Sep 25, 2016 | 9:02 PM
(1:59) D.Bailey 49 yard field goal is GOOD.
Cowboys 10 - Bears 0
Eagles This is going to be a massacre
by Haan on Sep 25, 2016 | 9:06 PM
Bears Need 2 yards? Throw for one.
by Just Dave on Sep 25, 2016 | 9:07 PM
Bears So the best Bears defense is when the Cowboys drop passes?…
by LostInSTL on Sep 25, 2016 | 9:10 PM

Second Quarter
Bears How many times did we pass on Prescott?
by 75bearsfan on Sep 25, 2016 | 9:12 PM
Eagles Dak looks real good. Gross.
by TheDtrain on Sep 25, 2016 | 9:14 PM
Bears Gosh I wish we had one of these plug-in rookie QB’s that seem better than our $20 million man.
by mlb2109 on Sep 25, 2016 | 9:14 PM
Bears 4th flippin round………………
by mlb2109 on Sep 25, 2016 | 9:14 PM
Giants Dak. God I hope Reese gets gutsy in the draft and gets a gem in the 4th.
by gmenFan75 on Sep 25, 2016 | 9:15 PM
Bears I waited all day to watch this game. How depressing.
by Silence_Dogood on Sep 25, 2016 | 9:17 PM
Browns Dak has to have one of the fastest wind up to releases in the NFL. Most of it looks like clinic tape. Once he gets better command of the offense Romo is going to pass the torch this season. Kid is legit.
by The Outside Shot Underdog on Sep 25, 2016 | 9:17 PM
(11:16) L.Dunbar left tackle for 1 yard, TOUCHDOWN.
Cowboys 17 - Bears 0
Texans One more touchdown and the Cowboys will officially unleash Brian Hoyer the Destroyer.
by BrianHoyerHOF on Sep 25, 2016 | 9:19 PM
(7:52) C.Barth 34 yard field goal is GOOD.
Cowboys 17 - Bears 3
Bears We can't even execute the onside kick.
by TC53 on Sep 25, 2016 | 9:29 PM
Eagles Ordinarily I like Michaels and Collinsworth as commentators, but their non-stop hype of Prescott is almost more than I can take.
by CDfromND on Sep 25, 2016 | 9:30 PM
Panthers Fox kicking onsides in the second quarter. I’ve seen it all.
by tybrjo on Sep 25, 2016 | 9:30 PM
Bears Romo doesn't look happy. I think he’s worried about his job.
by Fencik45 on Sep 25, 2016 | 9:34 PM
Patriots Dak looks good.
by TB12ToRG87 on Sep 25, 2016 | 9:34 PM
Bears This is what Browns fans have felt like for the last few decades? OMG. This sucks. I now feel even worse for Browns fans…
by MidwayMonsterSTFU on Sep 25, 2016 | 9:39 PM
(:43) A.Morris up the middle for 3 yards, TOUCHDOWN.
Cowboys 24 - Bears 3
Saints How many Bear fans wish they still had Lovie Smith as their coach?
by LoachInTheHouse on Sep 25, 2016 | 9:43 PM
Bears I'm really looking forward to the bye week.
by Just Dave on Sep 25, 2016 | 9:43 PM
Browns Bears are a real competition for the #1 pick, they are worse than us.
by MartinMM on Sep 25, 2016 | 9:43 PM
Redskins Don't mean to beat on a dead horse but why on earth did we let our best running back go?
by Demj on Sep 25, 2016 | 9:49 PM
Bears On the bright side of things, we don’t have to worry about blowing a lead this game. So we got that going for us.
by MidwayMonsterSTFU on Sep 25, 2016 | 9:58 PM

Third Quarter
Bears That moment when the boards are more entertaining than the game…
by MidwayMonsterSTFU on Sep 25, 2016 | 10:11 PM
Bears Bears are exceptionally efficient on not converting 3rd downs.
by Bear Guy on Sep 25, 2016 | 10:12 PM
Redskins Ha ha ha. Odell cried and got beat up by a friggin net.
by SkinsNJ on Sep 25, 2016 | 10:21 PM
(7:14) B.Hoyer pass short right to Z.Miller for 2 yards, TOUCHDOWN.
Cowboys 24 - Bears 10
Eagles Go Bears!
by BirdsforLife20 on Sep 25, 2016 | 10:23 PM
Bears Wow! A TD!
by fattunesy on Sep 25, 2016 | 10:23 PM
Bears I am feeling the positive energy.
by DaBearssssss on Sep 25, 2016 | 10:24 PM
Bears More likely, it's gas....
by SomeGuyNamedDave on Sep 25, 2016 | 10:25 PM
Bears Wow a Dallas punt...
by SomeGuyNamedDave on Sep 25, 2016 | 10:31 PM
(3:34) D.Bailey 47 yard field goal is No Good

Fourth Quarter
Bears Now they're showboating against us.
by Roman F on Sep 25, 2016 | 10:46 PM
Eagles That hurdle was worth at least another 2 1st round picks.
by Haan on Sep 25, 2016 | 10:47 PM
Eagles You would think Dallas is losing, this crowd is dead.
by E.O.S on Sep 25, 2016 | 10:50 PM
Bears Elliot's first down gestures are a bit annoying.
by CraigGarbutt on Sep 25, 2016 | 10:49 PM
Bears Then maybe we should stop him.
by seven11 on Sep 25, 2016 | 10:50 PM
Bears That would be a novelty.
by SomeGuyNamedDave on Sep 25, 2016 | 10:51 PM
(9:09) D.Prescott pass short middle to D.Bryant for 17 yards, TOUCHDOWN.
Cowboys 31 - Bears 10
Bears I'm wearing a paper bag sitting on my own couch.
by BC_ on Sep 25, 2016 | 10:57 PM
Eagles So ends an impressive home losing streak. I thought they had what it takes to set a long standing record.
by Goombaiggles on Sep 25, 2016 | 10:59 PM
(6:35) B.Hoyer pass short middle to Z.Miller for 6 yards, TOUCHDOWN.
Cowboys 31 - Bears 17
Bears I can't even be mad anymore.
by WhiskeyRanger on Sep 25, 2016 | 11:25 PM
Texans Hoyer hoyering.
by Larry the Bomb on Sep 25, 2016 | 11:26 PM
Bears Omg. Hoyer with the strip sack on himself.
by MPG on Sep 25, 2016 | 11:28 PM
Packers It's not enough for the Bears to get beat, they have to risk injuries on both side trying to get a worthless TD.
by lowandslow21 on Sep 25, 2016 | 11:41 PM
Seahawks This version of the Cowboys looks pretty good. Looks like they scored big with Prescott and Elliot.
