Yesterday's news

Debating whether the Cowboys or Vikings have been the bigger disappointment this season is like debating which was a worse disaster: the Titanic or the Hindenburg.

Futile foursome

Minnesota and Dallas have massively underachieved, but so have the revamped Cincinnati Bengals. Perhaps a "Futile Four" tournament would provide a fitting end to each of their seasons.

High hopes, blunted expectations

The situations in Dallas and Minnesota both demanded crisis control, which, in this case, resulted in the sacrifice of a head coach to make progress toward a better future.

Vikings are biggest loser

The Vikings and Cowboys failed this year for strangely similar reasons, but Minnesota's fall from Super Bowl contender to NFL laughingstock has been the greater surprise

Inevitable in Minnesota, not so in Big 'D'

The dismissal of Brad Childress in Minnesota was inevitable, but Wade Phillips' firing in Dallas could have been avoided had the Cowboys lived up to their potential.

Cowboys should have been better

The Cowboys' turnaround since Wade Phillips' firing shows their players quit on their former head coach - and that's downright shameful.

Deeply disappointing

Both the Minnesota Vikings and Dallas Cowboys have been colossal failures this season. The Vikings placed their bet on a 41-year-old quarterback while the Cowboys have failed to live up to their payroll.

Boys' bigger surprise

The writing was on the wall for the Vikings after everything went their way in 2009. With a roster loaded with talent, the Cowboys' demise is the bigger stunner.

Great expectations

Brad Childress became the second head coach to fall victim to unfulfilled expectations on a team picked to challenge for a Super Bowl title.
