Yesterday's news


Are we still talking about the Cowboys and Vikings?


Unless one of those two teams stages a comeback of near Biblical proportions -- for instance, if the Cowboys now run the table and sneak into the playoffs with a 9-7 record, which is conceivable if virtually unimaginable -- then it really is time for all of us to call it quits and turn our attentions to teams that are actually having good seasons. Teams that might actually make the playoffs. Teams that might win the Super Bowl. Teams that didn't roll over and play dead for half the season. Teams that didn't cost their head coaches their jobs.

Asking which team is having the more disappointing season is like asking which was worse, the Titanic or the Hindenburg.

You say Titanic. I say Hindenburg. But we can both agree they were both disasters. Enormous disasters.

The Cowboys and Vikings were supposed to be duking it out for the NFC title with the Saints this season. That's highly unlikely to happen now. Which team is more disappointing?

You say Cowboys. I say Vikings. But we can both agree that they're both disasters. Enormous disasters.
