Bob today is a great read, sad but true. "Now, since the final gun in Tempe at the end of Super Bowl 30, when Jerry and Barry were having a laugh and holding the trophy, the Cowboys are 144-145 in the 289 games (regular season and playoffs combined). This team is 4-4 and should not be attached to teams that featured Clay Shiver and Eric Bjornson, but they invariably are. They have to prove - with play in games like this - that this team is of different quality to those that helped fashion this reputation of mediocrity over the last 18 seasons. And on Sunday in Detroit, they did not. They played well enough to win and yet found a way to lose. "
