Tales From the Dark Side: Whoopeee!

The Cowboys whipped up on the hapless Houston Texans today, 34-6. TO Owens scored 3 touchdowns and was pretty subdued in his celebration, at least by TO Owens standards.

For the sheep, this victory clearly proves the Cowboys are, in fact, one of the best teams in the history of the world, and should run the table right up to the Super Bowl. In fact, I'm sure several of them are working on victory parade plans right now, while some of the real optimists are busy making reservations in Glendale AZ for Super Bowl XLII, since the Cowboys are clearly SO dominant they will go 16-0 next year as well.

For the clear-eyed among us, most of whom are either card-carrying Dark Siders or are considering filling out an application, this victory is greeted with yawns and comments such as, "Beat someone and get back to me."

The Cowboys are making what little hay they are against some truly terrible teams. The Redskins (without Clinton Portis, if you will recall), Tennessee (Vince's first start), and Houston are all woeful. Perhaps Oakland is the worst team in the league, but these three are right there for the honor. Any middle- to lower-third team should be able to beat this group, and beat them badly.

Which the Cowboys are and have.

All-World defense? Sure, against offenses that can't get out of their own way.

Dominant O line? Every week, as long as the opposing defensive front is a collection of rookies, spares, and castoffs.

The next two weeks are going to be a bit more interesting. While the Giants and Carolina are neither one a juggernaut, they are both, at least, in the same group of middle-of-the-pack teams as the Cowboys. Both have the ability to play some on both sides of the ball, given sub-par competition, which the Cowboys should provide.

We'll spend this week hearing the sheep make all kinds of noise about the "dominant" Cowboys, the "manhandling" of the Texans, the "resurgence" of the offense, and the "fearsome" defense. The clear-eyed observers will reply with the watchword: "Beat someone and get back to me."

At the end of the year, when that big, ugly 6-10 record is posted, this team and its coach will be exposed for what they are.

Yeah, not much of an honor. But thanks for the thought!
