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.

Jerry Jones: Architect of mediocrity, enabler of failure

Chiefs, Cowboys lead early surprises

Texas two-step

The Dallas Cowboys' slow start isn't a total shock and they should still contend for the NFC East, but the Houston Texans appear poised for a postseason run following two impressive victories to start the season.

Five early surprises

The Dallas Cowboys, Minnesota Vikings, Chicago Bears, Pittsburgh Steelers and Houston Texans have all surprised early on for very different reasons.

By Dave Goldberg | September 21, 2010; 09:48 AM ET | Comments (1)

Parity is plentiful

Few expected the Kansas City Chiefs to win the AFC West or the Chicago Bears to take the NFC North, but that both are off to 2-0 starts speaks to the parity of the NFL.

By Joel Thorman | September 21, 2010; 09:32 AM ET | Comments (0)

NFC North gets interesting

The Kansas City Chiefs are the biggest surprise so far this season, using young talent to compensate for a struggling quarterback. Meanwhile 0-2 stats for the Cowboys and Vikings shouldn't come as a huge surprise.

Dumb Enough to Work

For Buffalo it makes perfect sense. As for T.O., the move makes very little sense.

T.O. to the Rescue

Thanks to the aggressive move of signing Terrell Owens, the Buffalo Bills have become a factor again after years of irrelevance.

Smart Move, Bills

There's a pattern here -- T.O. is a great first date and a rotten partner.

The numbers indicate he's just another receiver now

When Personality Trumps Performance

A little narcissism can be okay, but too much "me, me, me" leaves little room for others.

T.O.'s Longest Yard

Terrell Owens has no one but himself to blame for his current predicament.

Terrell Owens To DC

Don't believe the front office hype, Terrell Owens will be a Redskin.

T.O. Spells No

Chances are the next time we see Owens will be in a reality show rather than an NFL stadium.

Strong draft hurts T.O.

With seven potential first round WRs in this year's draft, fewer teams will be interested in the enigmatic Owens.

T.O. to the Ravens?

Without T.O. Dallas is just another pretender, and only Wade Phillips to blame.

Terrell and the Jets?

Yes, he's over the hill, but what better stage for a swan song than Broadway?

By Les Carpenter | March 5, 2009; 12:00 PM ET | Comments (1)

Plenty of Possibilities

There are only about six or seven teams for which signing Owens would make no sense at all.

NE, Maybe

Sometimes the best way to prevent distractions is to keep them out of your locker room. We're coaches, not psychologists.

Too Much Baggage

For Jones to cut the ties with T.O. sends a huge red flag to the rest of the NFL.

NFC East Redux

DC...get your popcorn ready. But be mindful -- it'll get stale pretty quick.

March 6th Winner: INKYDOG

I have been a Redskins fan all of my life, but as God as my witness, if they sign TO I will pack away my burgundy and gold jersey and find another team to follow.

February 25th Winner: texas_willie

Jerry Jones is a short-sighted egomaniac, an embarrassment, and an enabler of over-the-hill veterans who know a sugar daddy when they see and hear it.

Cowboy Torture Never Stops

The gag order will last until Jones hears another set of questions he can't answer in a way that explains his own modus operandi favorably.

Will Jerry Jones Gag Order Backfire?

Gag or choke? What will happen when Cowboys Owner Jerry Jones gags his coaching staff?

Can You Gag Anonymity?

Jones doesn't trust his employees. Rather than take measures to gain their trust...ban their asses from talking.

Father Jones Knows Best

I think this policy is profound. In fact, I have just put a gag order on my family.

Jonesing for a GM

It's not the media's fault Jones is such a control freak that he insists on calling the shots rather than acquiescing to a proven general manager.

The Rooney Blueprint Wins

In a league rife with copycats the Steelers have always followed their own blueprint. And it's built quite a trophy room.

T.O. Reality TV

No denying he's hard not to watch, but will you be tuning into Terrell Owens' VH1 reality show? Vote yea or nae on T.O. here.

Cinderella's a Fairy Tale

The NFL would be better served if Super Bowl XLIII featured the Steelers against another traditional power like the Cowboys.

December 23rd Winner: WPRIOLEAU

No one choked like the Cowboys (and I am a Cowboy fan). We need a championship gut to go with all that glitter.

Are the Dallas Cowboys Done?

Or can Romo and TO patch things up and get "America's Team" into the playoffs? Readers Decide.
