Yesterday, the Cowboys got their first victory of the season against their Texas stepchild, the Houston Texans.
The Cowboys were close to drowning in a sea of expectations that were so out of control, Jerry Jones had trouble dealing.
The Super Bowl is being played in Jerry World (Cowboys Stadium) this season, and Dallas has enough talent for more than a few teams in the NFL, so they were the “logical” choice to make the Super Bowl.
Well, as my pencil-pushing ESPN friend Lee Corso would say, “not so fast, my friend.”
Dallas entered yesterday’s match-up with a record of 0-2. The Texans were riding high at 2-0, coming off of huge victories against a division foe in the Indianapolis Colts and a comeback victory against the Washington Redskins, so their confidence level was Texas-sized.
