The Dallas Cowboys face off against the Chicago Bears on Thursday night. But prior to the big game, our FanSided Bears site, BearGooglesOn.com, challenged The Landry Hat staff to a bit of friendly smack talk. Below you’ll find the conversational jabs between our site representatives. Enjoy!

Before we start the smack talk and insights, can you tell our readers a little something about yourselves?

"My name is Michael Praser and I have been a staff writer for Bear Goggles On for over a year now. I have been a die-hard Bears fan ever since I went to my first game over 10 years ago and I have never looked back. I’m also a Cubs fan since birth, so I know a little something about disappointment year after year. My name is Christian Blood and I have been a staff writer for The  Landry Hat for a little over a year but have also written  for other websites and blogs for five years. I also spent 15  years in the radio industry as a broadcaster doing everything from news and sports to bad songs by ‘NSync. I have followed the Cowboys since about 1980 and have experienced the best and worst of times with America’s Team."

We’ll start with a question from…

Michael Praser (Bears)

"Christian, what happened to the Cowboys on Thanksgiving? I was looking forward to a  good, competitive game after the shellacking the Bears got  from the Lions. Then I got that massacre that ensued by the  Eagles."

Christian Blood (Cowboys)

"Ah yes, Thanksgiving … not much to give “thanks” for in that game, right? Wait … your a Cubs fan, so you know a little about those kinds of results, right? Anyway, Jason Garrett and a complete “cluster-muck” of more qualified assistants and experience happened to the Cowboys. I could go on to include Jerry Jones’ financial decisions as a central problem regarding the teams pass rush, or lack thereof, this season in particular. Chicago might very well have a better shot at the playoffs than Dallas … I mean the Bears, not the Cubs, of course!"

Michael Praser (Bears)

"Hey, the Cubs just hired Joe Madden. They are winning the World Series next year. I do miss having the Huston Astros in the National League Central. At least they used to occupy last place. Now the Cubs get to have those honors. You are an Astros fan, right? I mean, Huston, Dallas, what’s the difference? Rangers fan? How did the Rangers do last year?  Moving on… The Bears have zero chance of making the playoffs this year. So I guess the Cowboys have a negative chance at making the playoffs this year. The Cowboys can still make the playoffs and to be honest, I think they will this year. They have a team that is good enough for the playoffs, at least based on performance of the games that I have watched. If you don’t count Thanksgiving. The Bears on the other hand have all the horses, it just seems like they have nobody to ride them. The coaching staff in Chicago is lame, especially on defense. If the Bears don’t fire everyone next year, then they don’t see what I see. Back to the Cowboys. Why do you think the Cowboys won’t make the playoffs this year? They still play the Eagles again, and Washington is a mess. Plus the Giants, ha!"

Christian Blood (Cowboys)

"I grew up in Dallas-Ft.Worth, making me a Texas Rangers fan, yet I believe that baseball is America’s “past” time, so it doesn’t really matter. However, I must point out that Texas went to back-to-back World Series just a few years back, losing both. The Cubs won back-to-back championships when … wait for it … Teddy Roosevelt was President, over a century ago. Weren’t the Cubs also called the Orphans at one time? Moving on, if you think that the Cowboys have a good chance to reach the postseason, you simply haven’t seen enough of this team in December since Bill Clinton, since we’re including former Presidents. America’s Team hasn’t even been to the playoffs since 2009. Oh, and our Texas boy Colt McCoy, presumably the Washington Redskins starting quarterback in the coming regular season finale in D.C. has already beaten Dallas. You saw what the Bears did to Dallas last year, right?  Yep. That was in December too!"

Michael Praser (Bears)

"Yeah, let’s just agree that baseball is boring and move on to our crappy, under performing football teams. It is true that Colt McCoy has already beaten Dallas, but I do recall that Tony Romo had a back contusion in that game. I just can’t believe that you are giving up on a Cowboys team that can still win. I gave up hope for the Bears when they lost to the Patriots and Packers by more than 50 points. That was just a pathetic performance by the Bears defense. I don’t think you will see a repeat performance of what the Bears did last year. They can’t move the ball on offense at all. I just don’t understand how the Bears can go from a #2 scoring offense last year to a pitiful display of garbage this year. Jay Cutler has turned the ball over too much this year, and the Bears defense is  just not any good. It’s funny, I want to talk smack about the Cowboys, but I just can’t because I believe they are a much better team than the Bears. So what do you think of Tony Romo’s performance so far this year?"
