    Better Football? Dallas Cowboys vs. Dallas Desire

    ​Woe are the Dallas Cowboys. I still don't think their season is kaput, but it doesn't look good: *At 1-3, they're firmly in the NFC East cellar. *Sunday they play at the Minnesota Vikings, an equally desperate 1-3 team. *You'd think the Cowboys would have the motivation factor, what with B ...
