Dallas only has two problems, really.

From what we saw tonight, the good news is that Dallas only really has two problems:

1. They can't stop anything.
2. They can't score.

So if they just tweak those two things during the bye week, this could be a really great year.

Dallas at Seattle: don't worry - they didn't practice this week. Right?

I hardly know where to begin, so let me start with Moose Johnston's late game comment about how Jason Garrett always has his guys prepared.

Sorry, Moose, you're wrong.

I like Jason Garrett, but if the Barry Switzer or Wade Phillips Cowboys laid an egg like this, we wouldn't be praising the coach. Special Teams gave up ten points, the defense made a rookie QB look like Joe Montana and the offense couldn't catch a cold or convert European voltage on their laptops. (Sorry - ran out of metaphors.) As Phil Yewdall says, "When all three phases fail, you blame the coach."

1. Cowboys 27, 49ers 24 (Sept. 18, 2011) - double digit, 4th quarter comeback against top defense – with a broken rib and punctured lung.

The good, the bad and the ugly in the Meadowlands

First, a quiz for you (answer at the end): What do Patrick Crayton, Laurent Robinson and Kevin Ogletree have in common?

It's always hard to know what to take away from the season opener. While it is tempting to say "the Cowboys are Super Bowl Bound" I think the more likely take is "the Giants might really, really suck this year."

Feeling better after the second preseason game

With two preseason games under our belts now, we can start to make some assessments. Fortunately, those assessments are a lot more positive following the game in San Diego than they would have been following the team's performance in Oakland. So here are my random, rambling thoughts:
