Hall of Fame Game Open Thread: Dolphins vs. Cowboys

Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

It's indulgent, overhyped and probably very boring. But it's NFL football - if nothing more than the early shell of it. We're going to watch it. Stay here and chat it up with us.

The Dolphins and Cowboys aren't exactly big-time draws for Steelers fans. With former Steelers WR Mike Wallace likely sitting this one out with a groin injury (and no chance he packs his locker and sprints out of town after the final whistle), there really isn't much connection, except the Steelers take on the Dolphins in Week 14.

Weird stat of the day...the Steelers are 3-3 in their last six Week 14 games, and those losses were usually more of the shocker variety. Cleveland's upset over the Steelers in one of the most miserable offensive performances on record in 2009, the 16-0 Pats whipping of the Steelers in 2007 and San Diego's third down supremacy last year.

Sorry. Tangent over. Sort of. This reminds me of last year's Hall of Fame Game thread when I wrote all about the Saints and Buccaneers squaring off. The Bucs weren't playing though. Whoops.

Definitely over now.

We're watching this game because it's football, and I've got Dexter set on the DVR anyway.
