Support the independent voice of Dallas and help keep the future of Dallas Observer free.

Jason Garrett is clueless. Roy Williams is a bust. Martellus Bennett is a non-factor. Felix Jones has lost a step. Nick Folk has the yips. Marc Colombo is hurt. Ken Hamlin can't tackle. Anthony Spencer doesn't have a sack. Dave Campo and Terence Newman had to be seperated on the sidelines. And Bobby Carpenter gets meaningful playing time.

I know, sounds awful.

But if when the Dallas Cowboys beat the Oakland Raiders on Thanksgiving, they'll be 8-3 headed into December.

If back in August at training camp in San Antonio I would've offered you 8-3 (plus a bonus that this pain-in-the-ass would vanish), would you have taken it?

1. Hell yes.

2. Nope.

Me too. And I know for sure a certain someone with the highest of hopes would've signed up for the deal. 

Keep the Dallas Observer Free... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Dallas with no paywalls.
