In Dallas, however, the Cowboys have gone 2-3 all three years. That's more losing records than he had at all his other stops combined.
I'd love one of those 5-0 finshes. Getting a bye and home-field advantage for a game would set us up nicely. It all starts Sunday against the Giants, a game we really need to win.
The last time Dallas enjoyed either of those rewards? 1995, the year of the Cowboys' last Super Bowl title. And, as most fans are painfully aware, the club hasn't won a playoff game since 1996.
Meanwhile the Bears are already thinking about the Cowboys. So far this year, the Bears have struggled against 3-4 defenses (sounds like Peyton and the Colts).
The only three 3-4 defenses they have faced - the Dolphins, Jets and Patriots - have held them to their three lowest scores in their 9-2 season.
So now they have the Cowboys on their mind.
It's six weeks until the Bears are likely to be in a playoff game, but it's never too early to start preparing, and the Cowboys look like just about the only NFC team besides the Bears interested in playing in January.
That leaves the club with an open spot on the practice squad if anyone's interested.
Reportedly, the Cowboys are interested in putting Dallas Desperados kicker Carlos Martinez into that practice squad opening.
Too bad, it was fun to write about.
