It's all about the hype

Yea, I know guys, this loss sucked.  We are angry at JG, Romo, Wade and everyone related to the defense.  The thing to remember is that this Cowboys team has been over-analyzed, over-hyped and over-scrutinized since early August.

This is one hell of a team, with so many weapons on offense and defense and a ton of marquee players.  This raises our expectations and a loss like this makes us all crazy.  It doesn't help that everyone in the media goes into overdrive after a loss like this and jumps up on their "I told you the Cowboys were frauds!" pedestal, just itching to see them fail.

Take a look at Matt Mosely's column - the guy who once wrote for the DMN seems almost giddy in picking the Cowboys apart.  He calls out Tank Johnson, sings the praises of Jim Zorn and calls the boys the "Sultans of September", a backhanded compliment if ever there was one.

Last time I checked, the Eagles lost to the Bears.  The Packers lost to the Bucs and the Pats got blown out by the Dolphins.  Welcome to the era of parity, the Cowboys are no different.

This loss was painful because it was the dreaded Redskins but the Cowboys are 3-1 with a lot of season left.  Don't get crazy and call for an overhaul of the team.  Everyone knows they crapped the bed and will work to fix it.  This is one hell of a team and what better cure for a painful loss than the Bungles this Sunday.

Enjoy the ride and don't let one loss ruin your week, I GUARANTEE this team gets it's sh*t together and gives us some postseason fireworks.
