It is the bye week for the Dallas Cowboys and after the nightmare that was on the field against the Saints on Sunday, you might expect to see a few changes in the coaching staff occur. But not to worry.

ESPN.go.com"s Tim MacMahon has the inside scoop on why Jerry feels there is no need for any changes to be made, after all 5-5 is evidently not a bad position to be in at this time in the NFL season.

Coach K does not relish the thought of anyone "Tanking"
1 of 12, not a really good night for Tim Duncan Wednesday night . But Tony Parker and 6 other Spurs had double digits which helped cap off a win over the Washinton Wizards in the AT&T Center last night with a final score of 92-79.
Let's get a few issues / peeps that need punching out the way first ....shall we ?
Anyone who has been channel surfing after midnight has perhaps run across this particular individual's
info-mercials more than once.
And then there is this lovely little gem surfacing off the coast of Miami Florida. There is no way to know how far this harrassment situation goes in regards to responsibility.....but this is a good place to start weeding those individuals involved out of the franchise.
If you are wondering just exactly where your College Basketball team is ranked in week II....here ya go .
Tonight the Spurs take on the Wizards at the AT&T Center and you can hear all the action on our big brother station News Radio 1200 starting at 7pm.
I've never done this before and it's totally yag but here is my ranking of Pearl Jam's studio records. Keep in mind that I'm a Pearl Jam nut so even the 11th ranked record is still brilliant in my opinion.
1. 1991: "TEN" -- Up to this point I was a preppy D-Bag who dug alternative, rock, grunge, etc. but I didn't have a true personal connection with it until this record was released. My grandmother, who raised me, was dying of cancer and I was facing young adulthood, college and trying to support 2 little sisters practically alone. Out went the Cole Hahns and Tommy Hilfigers and in came the black tee shirts and holes in the jeans. Been that way ever since. -- Favorite tune: "Jeremy" (that kid committed suicide in Richardson, a suburb of Dallas -- I remember reading the article about it.)
2. 1993: "VS." -- Here I am, no clue of who the hell I am, with a grandmother that passed away 2 weeks after I graduated high school. Searching for answers I wound up spending some time in Jamaica (no BS).... I inherited $900 from my grandma and figured, "why not"... The song "Leash" asks the grownups to get off our backs and allow us to learn, screw up, learn some more and screw up some more. "Drop the leash - We are young - Get out of our f****** face!" -- Favorite tune: "Leash" -- It wasn't one of the "hits" on the record but you can get a stellar rendition of it by youtubing "Pearl Jam Pinkpop Leash"
3. 2009: "BACKSPACER" -- "Understand she's a Force of Nature -- Contraband hiding deep inside her soul -- Exercising her will to lose control -- She let's go" -- Favorite tune: "Amongst The Waves"
4. 2006: "SELF TITLED" -- A full blown protest record during the Iraq debacle. Gen X'ers hadn't ever had a real cause until then and Pearl Jam captured the spirit nicely. "Inside Job" is as good as any protest song I've ever heard. No offense to Baby Boomers. -- Favorite tune: "Inside Job"
5. 1994: "VITALOGY" -- After the smashing and at times maniacal hype that accompanied their first 2 records, the band changed it's tune a bit with a more "punky" sound. A brilliant symbolic middle finger toward the cool kids and media. The posers stopped listening around this time and the hard cores got the band all to themselves. -- Favorite tune: "Whipping"
6. 1998: "YIELD" -- Thank God that I have been able to stave off the demons of drug addiction. Without going into detail, just believe me when I say that I'm quite familiar with the prison of it. I hear some addiction discourse in some of the tunes on this record. Eddie Vedder avoided the awful drug demons that killed Kurt Cobain, Layne Staley and others from that scene. -- Favorite tune: "In Hiding"
7. 1996 "NO CODE" -- Vastly underrated record that only hard cores can tell you about. If you're a dude who missed this era (many did) check out the tunes "In My Tree", "Red Mosquito" and "Present Tense". The band decided to go rogue and make whatever the hell they wanted, consequence be damned. This record, I believe, saved the band from breaking up. They had war with Ticketmaster, were on drummer #4 and Ed apparently had some serious stalker issues going on. They were at a fork in the road and thankfully took the correct turn. -- Favorite tune: "In My Tree"
8. 2000 "BINAURAL" -- The height of the technological explosion on the West Coast and the number of millionaires skyrocketed. Prime song writing time for a band that shuns ADHD American Idiot. I fear technology to this day. "For every tool they lend us -- A loss of independence" -- Favorite tune: "Grievance"
9. 2013 "LIGHTNING BOLT" -- A band all grown up, who's gone through the bull s*** of youth and young manhood, made mistakes, self discovered and formed wrinkles. Now playing as tight as they ever have. -- Favorite tune: "Sirens"
10. 2002 "RIOT ACT" -- A ballsy, protest record that found the band tired of big corporate record companies and was still in mourning after 9 people were trampled to death in Denmark during one of their sets. -- Favorite tune: "Love Boat Captain"
11. 2003 "LOST DOGS" -- A release of 30 B-side tracks including a hidden tribute at the end to Layne Staley, the Alice In Chains/Mad Season singer who had died. Some absolutely killer songs that I still cannot believe didn't make any of their studio records. Early genius like Footsteps, Wash and Hard To Imagine run chills up my spine. Take the 10 best tunes off this release and it rivals Ten and Vs. -- Favorite tune: "Hold On"
