Dallas Cowboys

The 2008 Dallas Cowboys: Biggest. Disappointment. Ever.

If it's good enough for Kidd Kraddick and Casey Kasem, then a vacation week laced with "Best of ..." programming is good enough for my lil' corner of the blogosphere.

Left to digest how the pre-season Super Bowl favorites missed the playoffs and how the group of Cowboy cast-offs in Miami won their division, how about a month-by-month review of the Cowboys' shockingly sucky year:

JANUARY

*Giant disappointment.

FEBRUARY

*Suite dreams.

MARCH

*Hello, trouble.

APRIL

*Drafting a title.

MAY

*Major doings at minicamp.

JUNE

*T.O.'s body of work.

JULY

*Wading into training camp.

AUGUST

*Barber will get hurt, Johnson will suck, etc.

*"Success in the playoffs." Or bust.

*Kiss of Death.

SEPTEMBER

*Hard Knocks at Camp Charmin.

*Dazzling debut.

*So much for 16-0.

OCTOBER

*Felix the Phat.

*Jivin' at the Joule.

*Ouch.

*Silenced by the Rams.

NOVEMBER

*A new standard of suckiness.

*Temporary stay of excecution.

DECEMBER

*Deja boo.

*Last rites.

*Out with a whimper. - Richie Whitt
