Monday Morning News RoundupDeMarco Murray celebrates a touchdown
The Dallas Cowboys are really playing some awful football. Fortunately for the Cowboys, the Philadelphia Eagles are even worse. The Cowboys are a different team when DeMarco Murray is playing. There was some great football yesterday. The Denver Broncos continue to roll with Peyton Manning. The New England Patriots with Tom Brady are poised for another playoff run. I’m not sure what’s going on with the Baltimore Ravens, who had a great opportunity to knock off the wounded Pittsburgh Steelers. That simply didn’t happen. Russell Wilson, quarterback for the Seattle Seahawks, continues to make plays. He was instrumental in the upset victory over the Chicago Bears. I cannot explain why the San Francisco 49ers cannot thoroughly trounce the St. Louis Rams. They can’t. As a matter fact, the Rams played like a playoff team in beating the 49ers.
John Boehner states the obvious – the House is not going to give up their main leverage tool in budget negotiations, the debt ceiling. The White House and Democrats would have to ante up an arm and a leg, and even that might not be enough to move the debt ceiling from partisan politics.
