Because it wouldn't be a newspaper football preview without piss-in-the-wind game predictions.
On the short list of Dallas Cowboys' highlights this season: Dez Bryant. Mat McBriar. And, yes, Jon Kitna. After not playing a single snap in 2009, there were concerns about Tony Romo's 39-year-old backup. We all remember the disaster that was Brad Johnson. But after being pr ... More >>
In his first NFL action in almost two years, Jon Kitna immediately served notice of one thing Monday night at Cowboys Stadium: When starting quarterback Tony Romo went down with a broken collar bone, the Cowboys' season swirled down the toilet with him.

The Washington Redskins suck. Furthermore, they were playing without running back Clinton Portis, tight end Chris Cooley, two starting offensive linemen and stud defensive playmaker Albert Haynesworth. That's what makes yesterday's 7-6 escape by the Dallas Cowboys so damn fugly. A ... More >>
After all, this franchise has a history with bad snaps.With nods to the special teams and Mike Mickens and Jason Williams, the most troubling aspect of last week's Cowboys' pre-season loss to the Raiders was the most elementary of plays: The snap.

Team christening this joint is suddenly going to look a whole lot different. Better?We can cross our fingers real hard and go for the trifecta, but I don't see Cowboys owner Jerry Jones firing Wade Phillips today. Let's don't get greedy. But let's also be realistic.
